The men’s basketball team will get a taste of the best and the worst the Ivy League has to offer this weekend. The Elis (9-8, 1-1 Ivy) will look to boost their league record back above .500 this weekend when they host Harvard (10-5, 2-0) and Dartmouth (2-13, 0-2). The two visiting teams are opposites […]

A sluggish first half against Brown on Saturday proved too much for the men’s basketball team to surmount. The Bulldogs (9-8, 1-1 Ivy) clashed with the Bears (5-10, 1-1) for the second consecutive weekend, but found drastically different results in Providence this past Saturday than they did in last weekend’s conference opener in New Haven. […]

“That’s Brown!” men’s basketball assistant coach Matt Kingsley yelled at the defense as guard Ari Greenberg ’09 hit a layup off a backdoor cut at practice Thursday. “That’s Brown right there!” Even with one win over the Bears (4-10, 0-1 Ivy) under their belts, the Elis (9-7, 1-0) are not slacking in their preparations for […]

After three years of falling just short, the men’s basketball team finally beat Brown. Saturday night’s Ivy League opener not only gave the Elis (9-7, 1-0 Ivy) a solid start to conference play, but also the satisfaction of blowing out an opponent that has plagued the Bulldogs for years. Leading by 29 with 5:26 left […]

M. bball to take on Bears

The men’s basketball team leads Brown in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals. While this might signal a sure win against any other team, nothing ever goes quite as expected when Yale plays Brown — a trend the Bulldogs hope to break in Saturday’s conference opener. Each time the Elis (8-7, 0-0 Ivy) have taken on […]

M. bball rolls over Eagles

The first half of last night’s men’s basketball game hinted at a repeat of the closely contested matches the Elis have lost to American in the previous two seasons, but the second half spelled a different end for Yale. A dynamic second-half performance led the Bulldogs (8-7) to a 71-59 win over American University (4-10) […]

M. bball wins two over break

The men’s basketball team’s winter break gave the Elis a little taste of everything: the good, the bad and the ugly. The good came in the form of a 70-67 defeat of Rice Jan. 2 on the heels of a win over Savannah State. The bad was consecutive losses to Providence and James Madison on […]

Elis fall in close game to Wagner

Whatever you say about the men’s basketball team’s first two homestands, you can’t say they were boring. Though the Elis (3-3) walked away from a 72-67 thriller against Sacred Heart with a win, they could not pull out a similar victory against Wagner (4-1) Saturday. The Bulldogs fell to the Seahawks, 73-69, despite holding an […]

M. bball hosts improved Seahawks

Last season, the men’s basketball team won only four non-conference games the entire season. Now, just one-third of the way through their pre-Ivy competition, the Elis are shooting for their fourth victory. The Bulldogs (3-2) will host Wagner (3-1) for the first time since 1998 on Saturday afternoon. The Elis are coming off a 72-67 […]

Final effort earns Bulldogs home win

In a typical basketball game, it’s almost impossible to score six points, pull down two rebounds, force a turnover, and shoot four foul shots in less than one second for the come-from-behind victory. Last night, the men’s basketball team proved that almost doesn’t count. Yale (3-2) was trailing Sacred Heart (1-3) by one, 67-66, when […]

M. basketball splits first contests

Though the preseason outlook may have been fairly dismal for an already mediocre men’s basketball team that lost its two best players after last season, Thanksgiving break showed that the Bulldogs may be better than expected this winter. The Elis (2-2) fell to Bucknell (3-0) in an 87-60 rout Nov. 26, but the John Thompson […]

Dawson breaks records, carries Crimson

Two and a half years into his record-breaking Crimson career, running back Clifton Dawson continues to make Harvard wish it could pull all of its players from Big Ten programs. Dawson, a junior who transferred from Northwestern after redshirting his freshman year, immediately established himself as a dominant offensive force in the conference. In his […]
