W. BASKETBALL | The Bulldogs just couldn’t handle Columbia’s intensity Friday night: Yale (12-15, 7-6 Ivy) fell to the Lions (17-10, 8-5) 64–47.

The Elis started the game on even footing with the Lions, trailing 16–12 after eight minutes of play. Columbia then went on an 8–0 run to extend its lead to 24–12. The Lions took their 12-point advantage into the locker room at halftime ahead 33–21.

The second half proved just as difficult for the Bulldogs, as the Lions led by as many as 20 before finishing the game with a 17-point win.

The Elis were held to 34.2 percent shooting and were outrebounded 43–31.

Lions forward Judie Lomax led all players with 21 points and 21 rebounds, while Yale guard Megan Vasquez ’13 paced the offense with 13 points.

The Elis will travel to Ithaca tomorrow to take on Cornell in Yale’s final game of the season. The game will begin at 7 p.m.
