Hoops – Cornell Big Red vs Columbia Lions

Posted by nmg1 on January 22, 2010

Bright Lights, Big Opportunity For Men’s Hoops At Columbia

Cornell vs Columbia Basketball 23-Jan-2010 - CU Coach Steve Donahue

ITHACA, N.Y. — Cornell’s trip to New York City in December was a big hit, with the Big Red capturing the MSG Holiday Festival with a last-second overtime victory over Davidson and a signature win over St. John’s. The stakes are even higher when Cornell continues the 14-game Ivy League tournament when it battles Columbia on Saturday, Jan. 23, at 7:00 p.m. at Levien Gymnasium. Barry Leonard will provide the call on 93.5 WVBR-FM, while live audio of the game can be heard on the internet as part of the RedCast subscription service.

After opening the 2009-10 Ivy League season with an impressive 74-53 victory over the Lions in Ithaca, Cornell will attempt to improve to 2-0 in Ancient Eight play for the third straight year and improve its win streak against Columbia to nine games. The Big Red is 26-3 in conference action over the last three years, but to improve on that mark it will need to be able to win on the road in league play. So far this season, the road has been a home away from home for the Big Red. Cornell is 10-2 away from Newman Arena in 2009-10. Over the last two seasons, coach Steve Donahue’s teams have gone 11-3 in Ivy play on the road.

A darkhorse candidate in the Ivy League, Columbia has plenty of talent, when healthy, to compete for the conference crown. Without the services of senior guard Patrick Foley and with limited use of La Salle transfer Brian Grimes, the team’s second and third-leading scorers, sophomore sensation Noruwa Agho (17.4 ppg.) has been forced to carry the offensive load. The Big Red defense did a good job containing Agho in the first meeting, limiting him to seven points on 3-of-11 shooting with three turnovers.
