Women's basketball heads to Cornell looking for second straight win

  • Looking to repeat | Senior forward Courtney Bradford leads the Lions against Cornell this weekend.

With a victory over Cornell (8-7, 0-1 Ivy) this weekend, the Lions (4-11, 1-0 Ivy) will secure back-to-back wins to open Ivy League play. To prepare for the rematch against the Big Red, the Light Blue will need to bring the same offensive attack in Ithaca as it did at Levien on Saturday. Columbia shot 7-of-13 from beyond the arc, which was its best three-point shooting percentage of the season. Clutch free throw shooting and 16 points in 18 minutes from first-year guard Carolyn Binder helped the Lions hold off Cornell’s comeback attempt. Much of the drive was facilitated by Big Red forward Allyson DiMagno, whose 21 points and perfect 7-for-7 free throw shooting earned her co-Ivy League Player of the Week honors. The game tips off at 2:30 p.m. in Ithaca on Saturday.
