M. BASKETBALL | Playing the Killer P’s

The chances of the men’s basketball team winning the Ivy League title and playing in the NCAA tournament are slim — but they still exist. Likely needing to win their last four regular season games and get some help in order to earn a bid to the Big Dance, the Bulldogs (11-13, 6-4 Ivy) look […]

M. BASKETBALL | What a weekend

Second time’s a charm. Three weeks after traveling to New York and being on the wrong end of two contests against Cornell (18-8, 8-2 Ivy) and Columbia (11-12, 6-4), the Bulldogs (11-13, 6-4) used second half rallies Friday and Saturday night to defeat the two teams atop the Ivy League standings. The weekend sweep puts […]

M. BASKETBALL | Hoops at home

The going only gets tougher. Coming off splits the last two weekends, the Bulldogs (9-13, 4-4 Ivy) conclude their four-game home stand with visits from Columbia and Cornell, the two teams atop the Ivy League standings. Last weekend, the Bulldogs opened with a convincing 60-48 victory over then first-place Princeton (9-11, 4-3). But the win […]

M. BASKETBALL | Another split weekend for Yale

Different weekend, same results. A week after a frustrating split on the road, the Bulldogs (9-13, 4-4 Ivy) dominated from the tip against then-first place Princeton (9-10, 4-2) on Friday night but could not continue the momentum Saturday night against a struggling Penn team (7-13, 3-3), posting their second split in as many weekends.

M. BASKETBALL | Elis back at home

Home has never looked so sweet. Of the first 20 games of the season, the men’s basketball team played just five within the friendly confines of the John J. Lee Amphitheater. Now the Bulldogs (8-12, 3-3 Ivy) look to take advantage of a four-game home stand over the next two weekends and avoid hurting their […]

M. BASKETBALL | Bulldogs split ’em up

HANOVER, N.H. — The men’s basketball team knows how difficult it is to win two consecutive nights on the road. But the Elis also know they let a weekend sweep slip by. After routing archrival Harvard (10-10, 2-4 Ivy), 87-66, in Cambridge, Mass., on Friday night, the Bulldogs (8-12, 3-3) traveled here on Saturday and […]

Castillo: Another memorable Super Bowl

After watching last year’s Super Bowl, I never thought another one would come close to matching its suspense and pure entertainment. The storylines around last year’s game — most notably the New England Patriots’ hunt for an unprecedented 19-0 record — made the game all-the-more memorable. And when, following Eli Manning’s frantic scramble in the […]

M. BASKETBALL | Five wins and on a roll

Riding their first five-game winning streak and 2-0 Ivy League start since the 2001-’02 season, the Bulldogs have a full weekend of conference competition for the first time this season. The Elis (7-9, 2-0 Ivy) make their final trip to the Empire State when they travel to Manhattan on Friday to square off against Columbia […]

FOOTBALL | A new captain for a new era

Yale football will look quite different in 2009 with a total of 37 seniors graduating this May and an overhauled coaching staff taking the reins. But if there is anyone who can captain the beginning of this new era of Yale football, Paul Rice ’10 is certainly qualified. Even if his dad is a Harvard […]

FOOTBALL | Paul Rice ’10 named captain

Over the past two seasons, Yale football led the country in scoring defense and did so with a defensive player as captain for each of the campaigns. For the 2009 season, cornerback Paul Rice ’10 will look to continue the tradition that Brandt […]
