Columbia vs. Yale gameday preview



Where: Lee Amphitheater

When: 7 p.m.


Records: Columbia (10-10 2-4 Ivy); Yale (9-14, 3-3)

What to look for

Scouting Columbia: The Lions who played at Brown on Friday snapped a four-game losing streak and handed Harvard its first Ivy League loss of the season last weekend. Steve Frankoski’s 27 points paced the Lions’ attack. Columbia shot over 50 percent from the floor and 9-of-17 from 3-point range. The Lions average just 10.1 turnovers per game, which is the fifth fewest in the nation. Brian Barbour (13.0 ppg.) leads the team in scoring, while Mark Cisco (5.9 rpg.) is the top rebounder. Columbia has five players averaging at least 9.8 points per game.

Scouting Yale: The Bulldogs have won seven straight against the Lions, four of them at home but they still trail the all-time series 122-110. The teams have met at least once every year since 1902, which ties the series with Yale-Princeton as the oldest continuous series in Division I. Freshman Justin Sears returned to the Yale lineup last weekend helping the Bulldogs to a sweep of Penn and Princeton. Sears leads the team in rebounding and ranks second in the Ivy League in the department.
