Destin Jenkins (color commentary) lions look to close out home slate on good note Columbia will play its final home games this weekend as the Lions host Penn on Friday and Princeton on Saturday on Senior Night. The Lions won at Penn two weeks ago, making clutch plays down the stretch to preserve the 66-62 win on the road. A night earlier at Princeton, Columbia led early and held a four-point lead midway through the second half. The Lions eventually hit a cold spell as Princeton tightened its defense and pulled away for a 5545 win at Jadwin Gym. Penn is coming off a win over Yale at the Palestra last Saturday, when both Dan Monckton and Jack Eggleston had double-doubles to pace the Quakers. Princeton’s loss to Brown last Saturday dropped the Tigers a game behind Cornell in the Ivy race. Those two teams will square off on Friday in Ithaca.

bulger, foley and scott play final games at levien Columbia’s senior trio of Kevin Bulger, Patrick Foley and Niko Scott have been a large part of the men’s basketball program since they have set foot on the Morningside Heights campus. The three guards have combined to start 146 games since the 2006-07 season and have helped lead the Lions to 51 wins and 24 Ivy League wins during their careers in a Lion uniform. It is the most Ivy League wins totaled by a Columbia senior class since the class of 1994, which won 27 league games from 1991-94. This senior class of 2010 also has a chance to surpass the total wins mark of the previous two senior classes of 2008 and 2009, which each won 53 games during their four-year careers. Bulger, Foley and Scott, all co-captains this season, have combined for 1,841 points, 593 rebounds, 541 assists and 213 steals entering Friday’s game vs. Penn. Last Game’s Starters Pos.

JOE JONES

The 2008-09 season may have been Jones’ best coaching job as he steered Columbia to a 7-7 mark in Ivy League play, despite missing as many as four regular starters throughout the season due to injuries.

Head Coach Seventh season • Oswego ‘87 Joe Jones aimed to build a solid foundation for a successful winning program when he took the reins of the Columbia men’s basketball team in April 2003. While on his mission, he redefined Columbia Basketball. Entering his seventh season, Jones’ accomplishments continue to accumulate and he is nowhere near finished. The Lions have compiled 21 Ivy League wins over the past three seasons, the most for any Columbia team during a three-year span since 1991-94. Along with Cornell and Yale, Columbia is the only other Ivy League team to finish among the league’s top four during the past three seasons.

Jones’ Coaching Timeline • Columbia University Head Coach (2003-present) • Villanova University Assistant Coach (1997-2003) • Hofstra University Assistant Coach (1994-97)

During the 2008-09 season, Jason Miller ‘09CC established himself as one of the Ivy League’s premier big men with a career season that ranked him among the league’s best in scoring and rebounding. Miller earned a second team All-Ivy League selection and first-year Noruwa Agho ‘12CC earned Ivy League Rookie of the Week honors three times, establishing himself as one of the league’s top newcomers.

Jones’ first recruiting class helped reestablish Columbia as Ivy League contenders, thanks in • Comsewogue (L.I.) High School large part to two-time first team All-Ivy Leaguer, Head Coach (1993-94) John Baumann ‘08CC. Baumann became the 23rd player in school history to score 1,000 points, essentially over three seasons, after he missed much of his first year due to injury.

Columbia’s defense has been among the Ivy League’s best over the last three seasons under Jones’ watch and has improved every season. In 2008-09, Columbia ranked second in the league in both scoring defense and field goal percentage defense. Among all 330 Division I teams nationwide, the Lions ranked 42nd in scoring defense at 62.1 points per game allowed, and 21st in three-point field goal defense, as opponents shot just 30.6 percent from downtown.

Baumann finished with 1,298 points over his stellar career and in 2008, became the first Columbian to earn first team All-Metropolitan area honors since Columbia Athletics Hall of Famer Buck Jenkins in 1993. In 2006-07, the Lions finished 16-12 overall, and 7-7 in the Ivy League. The 16 wins were the Lions’ most since 1992–93, and the fourth-place league finish was the Lions’ best showing since 2000–01.

Game 1 – DePaul 59, Columbia 53

Game 2 – Columbia 72, Longwood 61

ROSEMONT, Ill. – Columbia had a chance to tie the game in the final minute but a three-point try was just long and DePaul hit three of four free throws down the stretch to capture a 59-53 over a tough Lion squad in the season opener for both teams. Both teams took their time to get going offensively, but it was Columbia’s Steve Egee who came off the bench to spark the Lions early with a three-pointer and a pull-up jumper on consecutive possessions to pull Columbia to within 9-8 at the 12:36 mark. Columbia capitalized on nine DePaul turnovers in the first half and eventually took an 18-14 lead after a three-pointer by Noruwa Agho, who finished with 13 points, and a nifty move in the lane by first-year Mark Cisco. The Blue Demons clamped down on the defensive end, going on a 12-1 run for nearly six minutes until Brian Grimes hit a jumper to make it 26-21 DePaul. The Lions were within three, 28-25, near the end of the first half but DePaul’s Mike Stovall nailed a three-pointer from the far baseline as time ran out in the half to make it 31-25. DePaul maintained a lead between five and nine points throughout much of the second half as the Lions stayed close by switching defenses while converting on timely shots of their own. Missed free throws by both sides also kept the score in that range as the Blue Demons were unable to extend their lead to double digits and Columbia was unable to make it a one-possession game until the final minutes. With DePaul ahead 54-48, Niko Scott hit his first shot of the game, a huge three-pointer from the wing with 1:36 remaining to get Columbia to within three, the closest the Lions had been since the end of the first half. After Columbia forced a turnover on the defensive end, Foley’s three-pointer with a DePaul defender flying at him just missed long and DePaul’s Will Walker came away with the rebound after a fight for the loose ball. Walker made three of his four free throws in the final 32 seconds as DePaul came away with the six-point win.

NEW YORK – Led by 24 points from sophomore Noruwa Agho, Columbia jumped out to an early double-digit advantage and finished with a 72-61 victory over Longwood in its home opener at Levien Gym on Friday. Junior Brian Grimes recorded his second straight double-double as a Lion with 14 points and 13 rebounds. Columbia (1-1) built a 19-point first half lead courtesy of a sizzling 62.1 percent field goal percentage. The Lions were also stout defensively, limiting the Lancers to 29 percent shooting from the floor. The Lions led 24-11 after hitting four straight shots, the last coming on a baseline jumper by John Daniels, who made his second straight start to begin his collegiate career. Columbia increased its lead to as many as 21 points in the first half after two free throws by Agho, who scored 15 of his 24 in the opening 20 minutes. He made five of six from the field in the first half, including three of three from long range. Columbia maintained at least a 17-point advantage for the first 10 minutes of the second half until Longwood started to creep back into the contest. Earl Gee II hit a three-pointer at the 10:16 mark to make it 59-43 Columbia, and Longwood cut the Columbia lead to 10 points four different times. The Lancers eventually made it an eight-point game, 68-60, at the 2:54 mark on a layup by Dana Smith in transition. Smith led Longwood with 22 points and six rebounds. Columbia did not allow Longwood to get any closer as Patrick Foley, who finished with 10 points and four assists, hit four straight free throws down the stretch to seal the victory. “I thought we played really well in the first half,” said head coach Joe Jones. “In the second half, we didn’t have the same intensity so defensively we had some lapses.” Agho’s 24 led all scorers as he finished 4-for-4 from three-point range. Grimes finished 7-of-9 from the field and added two blocked shots that made the Levien Gym crowd rise. Mark Cisco also chipped in with eight points and four rebounds in 15 minutes off the bench.

Game 3 – Columbia 73, Bucknell 59

Game 4 – Syracuse 85, Columbia 60

NEW YORK – Columbia won its second straight game, 73-59 over Bucknell at Levien Gym, closing out the contest on a 30-8 run after the Bison had opened an eight-point lead with 10 minutes remaining. Noruwa Agho continued his outstanding play with a game-high 23 points as the Lions shot 72.2 percent from three-point range for the game. The game was tight throughout with the lead changing hands 11 times, and six times in the second half. Columbia led by three points at halftime, but Bucknell shot the ball extremely well from the perimeter to start the second half. At one point in the second half, Bucknell hit four straight three-pointers, including three from G.W. Boon, to take a 51-43 lead at the 10:16 mark. Agho, who scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half, came back to nail a three ball from the wing. The three-pointer came after the Lions were able to corral two straight offensive rebounds. Agho hit another trey to make it a two-point game but Bucknell continued to hold the lead until the 4:55 mark, when Foley made two free throws to give the Lions a 55-54 advantage. Brian Grimes, who converted a key layup earlier in Columbia’s run, hit one of two free throws to put the Lions ahead by two, and after another Columbia defensive stop, Agho hit his fifth three-pointer of the half, a dagger from the top of the key with a Bucknell defender flying at him, sending both players to the floor, as the Columbia fans erupted. Columbia still led by just four points with less than two minutes remaining. After an offensive rebound and a 30-second timeout, Niko Scott buried a three-pointer with the shot clock winding down to put the Lions ahead by seven. The Lions held strong from there, punctuating the win with an offensive putback by Blaise Staab in the final minute. Agho led all scorers with 23 points, hitting 8-of-12 from the field, including 7-of-8 from three-point range. Foley had a masterful game at the point, with 13 points and seven assists. Scott added 12 for the Lions, who improved to 2-1 with the victory.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Noruwa Agho had his third straight 20+ point game but it was not enough as Syracuse began the second half on a 19-3 run and remained unbeaten with an 85-60 win over Columbia at the Carrier Dome. Agho started off hot, making his first four shots, including three straight from three-point range, as the Lions were within a point of the Orange, 14-13, at the 11-minunte mark. Syracuse then went on a 10-2 run to open up a 24-15 lead, but Columbia came back, thanks in large part to some terrific hustle plays by John Daniels, who converted a layup, grabbed two straight offensive rebounds on the next possession, and fed Niko Scott for a three ball to cut the Syracuse lead to 24-20 with seven minutes left in the half. The Lions had a chance to further cut into the Orange’s lead but Syracuse was able to rip off seven straight points to take a 31-20 lead with 4:38 to play. Again, Columbia came back as Foley drained a three from the top of the key and Zack Crimmins found Asenso Ampim cutting on the baseline for an easy layup to bring the Lions within six, 31-25. Syracuse responded with five points of its own but Crimmins converted a putback with three seconds remaining in the half as the Lions headed to intermission down by nine, 36-27. Wes Johnson had eight points in Syracuse’s 19-3 run to start the second half and finished with a game-high 26 points on 8-of-13 shooting. Agho finished with 22 points and five rebounds, hitting on 8-of-14 from the floor. Foley had eight points and two assists, while Daniels had a solid all-around game with seven points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and a blocked shot. “They played the zone about as well as any Syracuse team I’ve seen,” head coach Joe Jones said after the game. “Their athletic ability just took over and they’ve done that to a lot of good teams this year.” Columbia still outrebounded Syracuse 13-12 on the offensive glass, had 18 assists on its 22 field goals, and posted a season-high nine steals.

Game 5 – Sacred Heart 60, Columbia 55

Game 6 – Columbia 75, Lehigh 70

FAIRFIELD, CONN. – A back-and-forth second half saw Columbia down by 12, then ahead by eight, and ultimately down by five at the end of the game as Sacred Heart’s Ryan Litke and Corey Hassan combined for 22 of the Pioneers’ 30 second-half points in a 60-55 win over the Lions at the Pitt Center on Monday night. Columbia started out hot, taking a 13-4 lead at the 14-minute mark, hitting four of its first six shots from the field. The Lions’ offense soon stalled, as Sacred Heart came back to tie the game at 21 with 5:45 remaining. The Pioneers hit four of eight from three-point range in the first half, including two by Hassan, who scored 10 in the first half. Sacred Heart closed out the first 20 minutes on a 9-0 run and led 30-23 at intermission. Sacred Heart came out quickly in the second half, scoring the first five points of the half, prompting a Columbia timeout. After that, the Lions started to mount their comeback. A driving layup by Niko Scott was followed by a pair of mid-range jumpers by Patrick Foley to bring Columbia within eight, 37-29. The Lions then went on an 11-0 run, scoring points in the half-court set and in transition. A three-point play by Brian Grimes after he grabbed an offensive rebound brought Columbia to within a point, 37-36, and Foley’s running one-hander off the glass gave Columbia its first lead since midway through the first half at 38-37. Columbia built its biggest lead of the half, 48-40, after two free throws by Mark Cisco, at the 8:52 mark. But Sacred Heart was able to come back, sparked by a basket by Jerrell Thompson and two long three-pointers by Hassan to tie the game at 48. The Lions still led 53-51 after two free throws by Kevin Bulger with six minutes left, but Litke sank consecutive three-pointers to put Sacred Heart ahead, 57-53. Down by two with a minute remaining, Columbia had a chance to tie but Sacred Heart forced a turnover. The Pioneers made three of their four free throws down the stretch to seal the win.

NEW YORK – Patrick Foley tied his career high and Brian Grimes set a new career high as the Columbia duo scored 21 points apiece to lead the Lions to a hard-fought, 75-70 win over Lehigh Thursday night at Levien Gym. After going up 11-4 with four minutes gone by in the first half, Columbia had to fight off an energized Lehigh attack. The Mountain Hawks had five steals in the first half and caused eight Columbia turnovers. Lehigh led by as many as six, 20-14, after a 16-3 run, but the Lions were able to whittle away the deficit and trailed Lehigh 33-31 at halftime. Columbia came out with renewed energy of its own to start the second half and Foley was the catalyst. The senior co-captain scored 16 of his 21 points in the second half and finished with six assists and four rebounds. Perhaps the best sequence of the game was after Columbia took a 42-40 lead, Foley blocked a potential three-pointer by Lehigh point guard Marquis Hall at the top of the key. The Lions pushed the ball up to the other end and Brian Grimes found Foley at the top of the key and Foley drained a three-pointer to put Columbia ahead, 45-40. The Lions led by seven, 51-44, at the 11-minute mark, but Lehigh clawed back into the game once again to tie it at 53 on a Rob Keefer jumper. Niko Scott then hit an NBA-range three-pointer on the left side to put Columbia back ahead by three. The Lions again pushed their lead to seven, but Lehigh eventually made it a one-possession game, 6360, on a four-point play by Hall with four minutes to go. After both teams held strong on the defensive end for two minutes, Columbia’s Asenso Ampim made a beautiful post move for an easy layin, making it a 65-60 game. Columbia went 6-of-6 from the foul line in the final two minutes as Lehigh made it interesting by nailing some long three-pointers. Grimes canned the final pair of free throws, giving the Lions a 73-67 lead with 19 seconds left, all but icing the third straight home win for Columbia to start the season.

Game 7 – Stony Brook 63, Columbia 60

Game 8 – Columbia 102, Wagner 91

STONY BROOK, N.Y. – Columbia had its chances to either tie or go ahead late in the game but the Lions fell just short in a 63-60 setback at Stony Brook on Saturday at Pritchard Gym. Chris Martin scored a game-high 18 points for Stony Brook, and hit 10 of 11 at the foul line to lead the Seawolves, who led 20-14 at the nine-minute mark, but Columbia used tight defense to storm back at the end of the first half. The Lions tied the score at 31 on a John Daniels layup at the twominute mark and made three straight defensive stops before Niko Scott drilled a three-pointer with 36 seconds left on great ball movement around the perimeter to put Columbia ahead, 34-31 at halftime. Columbia started out strong again in the second half, and went on a 14-3 run early in the second half, sparked by balanced scoring by each of the five Lion players on the court. The Lions eventually took their biggest lead of the game, 50-38, with 14 minutes remaining. The Lions still led by six, 54-48, after two free throws by Kevin Bulger at the 8:43 mark. But back-to-back treys by Stony Brook big man Danny Carter tied the game at 54. Noruwa Agho hit a pull-up jumper to put Columbia back up by a deuce, but Stony Brook answered with six straight points over a threeminute span in which Columbia came up empty in four attempts at the foul line. Columbia still trailed by two, 62-60, after a layup and a steal on the other end by Asenso Ampim with 20 seconds left but the Lions came up empty on the offensive end in the final seconds. Agho and Scott each had 12 for Columbia, while Patrick Foley added 11 points, four rebounds and three assists. Daniels had a strong game underneath with six points and nine rebounds and Brian Grimes also had seven points and eight rebounds.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Columbia was up by 25 at halftime, but Wagner used full-court pressure and 10 second-half three-pointers to get back into the game as the Lions eventually held off Wagner, 102-91, at Spiro Sports Center. The Lions were down 13-9 at the 15-minute mark before mounting a huge first-half run that saw Columbia play some of its best basketball of the season. Columbia used a 24-9 run over 10 minutes in the first half, then closed out the half on a 19-4 run, sparked by contributions from the Lions’ bench, including Brian Barbour (five points) and Matt Johnson. Noruwa Agho had 15 in the first half, on his way to a career-high 30 points on 11-of-16 shooting. Brian Grimes had 12 of 17 points in the first half as the Lions had 10 assists on 21 field goals. Wagner picked up its full-court pressure in the second half, turning the game into a track meet. The Seahawks hit 10 of their 20 three-point attempts in the half. Wagner’s Chris Martin hit five of his ten three-point tries in the second half and scored 21 in the final 20 minutes. He had a game-best 34 points. Wagner cut the Columbia lead to single digits, 88-79, at the fourminute mark, the closest the Seahawks had gotten since the eight-minute mark in the first half. But the Lions picked up their defensive pressure, forcing some Wagner turnovers, while making their free throws and a few key baskets on the offensive end. Columbia hit the century mark for the first time in two years, since a 109-63 win over Polytechnic at Levien Gym on December 29, 2007. Agho’s 30 led four Lions in double figures, including Grimes (17 points, six rebounds), Asenso Ampim (season-high 13 points) and John Daniels, who tallied his first collegiate double-double with 12 points and 10 boards.

Game 11 – Maine 65, Columbia 59

Game 12 – Columbia 56, American 51

NEW YORK – Columbia held a nine-point lead at the end of the first half but Maine stepped up its intensity after halftime and eventually held on to defeat Columbia 65-59 at Levien Gym on Wednesday night. Columbia looked like the top three-point shooting team in the nation early in the game, hitting three three-pointers in the first 6:16 to take a quick 14-5 lead over Maine. Maine then switched to a 2-3 zone to slow down the game and got to within three, 16-13, at the 10-minute mark. But the Lions would solve the Black Bears’ zone and held a 33-24 lead at halftime, sparked by Niko Scott’s 11 points in the first 20 minutes. After Columbia held Maine standout Gerald McLemore to just two points in the first half, McLemore came out firing to start the second half, giving his team renewed life. McLemore drained a pair of threes in the first three minutes of the second half as the Black Bears quickly erased Columbia’s nine-point halftime lead. The game remained close for much of the second half. When Steve Egee was fouled on a three-point attempt and calmly hit all three of his free throws, Columbia held a 40-38 lead with 13 minutes to go. Murphy Burnatowski came back on Maine’s next possession and hit a three to give the Black Bears the lead for good. Columbia came back within a point on three different occasions, but Maine held onto its edge and eventually took a seven-point lead, 61-54, on a pair of free throws by Junior Bernal. Scott came back down to nail a long triple and after Bernal missed two free throws on the other end, Scott converted two from the line to bring the Lions back to within two, 61-59, as the Levien Gym crowd was on its feet in support of Columbia’s comeback. McLemore hit one of two from the line with 29.5 seconds left, but Columbia was unable to tie in the final seconds. McLemore and Burnatowski combined to make three of four from the line for the final margin. Scott led Columbia with a season-best 16 while Brian Grimes had a tremendous second half (12 points, five rebounds) to finish with 14 points and eight boards.

NEW YORK – Despite losing a pair of starters to injury in the first half, Columbia battled back from an early deficit and put together its best defensive effort of the season to pull out a 56-51 win over American at Levien Gym. Noruwa Agho had a team-high 21 points with four steals in a gutty performance but it was the reserves who sparked the Lions on Monday night. Columbia received enormous second-half contributions from Kevin Bulger, Zack Crimmins and a career-high 18 points with seven rebounds from Asenso Ampim, including 14 points in a terrific second half. Trailing by seven at halftime, American strung together a 16-6 run over five and a half minutes to take a brief 35-34 lead on a three-pointer by the 6-10 Riley Grafft with 10:53 left in the contest. Ampim then scored Columbia’s next seven points as the Lions took a 41-39 lead but a layup on the other by American’s Stephen Lumpkins tied the score at 41 with 5:32 remaining. Crimmins then provided a huge boost, starting with a three-point play to give the Lions a 44-41 lead. After there was a scrum in the paint for a loose ball, Niko Scott found Crimmins, who muscled in the layup and then sank the free throw. On the next possession, Crimmins used a nice touch to make a turnaround hook shot to give the Lions a fivepoint cushion, 46-41, with four minutes to play. Following a media timeout, Lumpkins’ basket cut the Columbia lead to three but the Lions came down the court and Bulger drilled a three ball right in front of the Columbia bench to push the Lions’ lead back to six, 49-43, at the three-minute mark. A Nick Hendra three-pointer with 34 seconds left made it a 53-50 game and American had a couple chances to tie but could not convert. With Columbia ahead 53-51 with 13 seconds left in the game, Ampim capped his stellar performance by sinking two free throws to give the Lions an important four-point lead as the Lions held on for their fourth win in five games this season at Levien Gym.

Game 13 – Lafayette 91, Columbia 74

Game 14 – St. Francis N.Y. 59, Columbia 53

EASTON, Pa. – Lafayette’s Ryan Willen scored a career-high 27 points as Lafayette shot 56.9 percent from the field in a 91-74 win over Columbia at Kirby Sports Center on Wednesday night. The Lions battled back from a double-digit deficit to take a brief lead early in the second half, but the Leopards continued to shoot well from the perimeter to hold on for the win. The Leopards hit six of their first seven shots, setting the tone for the rest of the evening. Lafayette hit some open shots but the Leopards also made difficult shot after difficult shot with Columbia defenders surrounding them. Willen, who entered the contest averaging nine points per game, scored 16 of his 27 in the second half, including five straight that keyed a 10-0 Lafayette run midway through the second half. Down by as many as 13 in the first half, the Lions closed out the half on a 12-6 run, capped by a three-pointer by Niko Scott on a welldesigned play with two seconds left in the half. Trailing 47-40 to open the second half, Columbia came out on fire, sparked by Asenso Ampim. Ampim, who sat out the final 17 minutes of the first half after picking up a pair of early fouls, went to work down low and scored seven straight points for the Lions to bring them within a point, 52-51 with 14:53 left. Noruwa Agho nailed a mid-range jumper to give Columbia its first lead of the game since it was 2-0. With Columbia ahead 53-52 with 14 minutes remaining, Willen guided Lafayette on its fateful 10-0 run as the Leopards led by more than seven points the rest of the way. Agho led four Lions in double figures with 26 points, his seventh game this season with 20 or more points. Scott had 14 points, Ampim added 13, all in the second half, and Kevin Bulger posted a seasonhigh 11 points with four assists.

Game 17 – Harvard 74, Columbia 45

Game 18 – Columbia 63, Dartmouth 51

NEW YORK – Harvard held Columbia to 19 second-half points as the Crimson pulled away from the Lions and ultimately picked up a 74-45 win over the second straight sellout crowd at Levien Gym. A spirited home crowd buoyed the Lions at the outset. Although Harvard led 9-3 early, Columbia stuck around, eventually trailing by just three points after five straight points from Noruwa Agho. After the Lions cut the Harvard lead to five, 21-16, on a pair of Patrick Foley free throws, Harvard responded with a 20-10 run to close out the half, scoring in the final seconds on a Doug Miller layup. With the clock running down, Kevin Bulger just missed a near miraculous shot from half court that rimmed out as the first half ended. After shooting 56.5 percent from the field in the first half, Harvard continued its hot shooting, hitting 54.5 percent in the second half. The Crimson also played well on the defensive end, holding Columbia to 25 percent from the field. The Lions got as close as 13 points on a Zack Crimmins layup off an out-of-bounds play with 15 minutes remaining. Harvard then used a 13-3 run to expand its lead to 23 points, eventually pulling away down the stretch. Foley had 10 points in just 14 minutes before leaving a minute into the second half with an injury. Brian Barbour stepped in at point guard and had two points and two assists in the half. Jeremy Lin led all scorers with 14 points as nine different players scored for Harvard. Brandyn Curry added 13 for Harvard, which won its seventh straight. Blaise Staab came in to total three points and two minutes in the final two minutes of the game. The crowd of 2,592 was Columbia’s second largest crowd in five years, just a week after Levien Gym hosted 2,974 fans for the Lions’ game vs. Cornell.

NEW YORK – Columbia’s Noruwa Agho scored 14 of his 25 points in the second half as the Lions grabbed the lead in the second half, holding on for a 63-51 win over Dartmouth at Levien Gym on Saturday night. It was Columbia’s first Ivy League win of the season after three straight losses to Cornell and Harvard. Columbia started out quick, taking a 9-3 lead on three straight threepointers, two by Niko Scott and one by Agho. The Lions extended their lead to 17-6 on another Agho triple at the 14-minute mark, but then Dartmouth started to come back. The Big Green eventually ripped off a 12-0 run, holding the Lions scoreless for seven and a half minutes, which allowed Dartmouth to take an 18-17 lead. After Columbia briefly regained the lead on a foul-line jumper by Zack Crimmins, Dartmouth went back in front and eventually led 25-21 on a three-pointer by Robby Pride with 2:26 left in the half. Columbia’s defense got stops on three straight possessions to end the half and Brian Barbour sank two free throws to tie the game at 25 at intermission. The game remained close for the first five minutes of the second half. Dartmouth went in front, 31-30, on a Ronnie Dixon jumper but the Lions responded to take the lead and would lead for the rest of the game. Two Zack Crimmins free throws gave the Lions a 32-31 edge and Agho scored seven straight points to push the Columbia lead to eight. After Dartmouth cut it to four, Max Craig came in to score on a putback layup, sparking Columbia on an 11-1 run, including a thunderous left-handed dunk by Brian Grimes after a dish from Agho. The Lions led 50-36 with 5:55 left but Dartmouth cut the Columbia advantage to 55-50 on a three-pointer by Pride with 1:07 remaining. Columbia remained composed, however, hitting eight straight free throws in the final minute to cement the win. Agho finished shooting 8-of-12 from the field and also grabbed nine rebounds. Scott added 12 points and five rebounds, while Barbour had a career-high eight points and made all six of his shots from the foul line.

Game 19 – Columbia 65, Brown 54

Game 20 – Yale 79, Columbia 64

NEW YORK – After trailing by nine points at halftime, Columbia outscored Brown 38-18 in the second half, holding the Bears to 25 percent from the field in the half, and won its second straight Ivy League game, 65-54, at Levien Gym. When Brown stormed out to an 11-0 lead after most of the Levien Gym faithful had just settled into their seats, it appeared to be the Bears’ night. Columbia head coach Joe Jones used three first-half timeouts to settle his troops and eventually the Lions had chipped away at the Brown lead and trailed 36-27 at halftime. Part of the reason Brown jumped out quickly was that the Bears hit 57.1 percent from the floor in the first half. Of Brown’s 12 field goals, five different Brown players made seven three-pointers. Columbia still trailed by 10 at the 17-minute mark of the second half, after Matt Mullery hit a basket for his 12th point of the game. A minute later, Max Craig stepped in to defend Mullery down low and the momentum swung Columbia’s way. The Bears managed just two field goals in the final 17 minutes of the game. Noruwa Agho, who had an outstanding all-around effort with his first career double-double (18 points, 10 rebounds) nailed a three-pointer to bring Columbia to within five, 44-39, with 13:51 left. The teams stopped each other defensively several times down the floor and Brown still held a 48-43 with 7:39 to play on a Mullery basket. Niko Scott then converted a three-point play to cut the deficit to two, allowing Asenso Ampim to go to work. Ampim had a stellar game with 17 points, 11 coming in the second half. Ampim scored five points in a row for the Lions, allowing Columbia to take the lead for good, 51-49, on a three-point play down low. The three-point play sparked a 17-5 Columbia run to end the game. Ampim scored seven points in the run, and Brian Grimes had four points, including three huge plays that helped seal the win. With Columbia ahead by six with three minutes left, Grimes saved a rebound after his own miss by flying out of bounds and saving possession, allowing the clock to wind down. Grimes then nailed an 18-foot jumper from the corner on the same possession and put an excalamation point on the stretch with a driving lefty dunk to put the Lions ahead by eight with 1:39 left.

NEW YORK – Yale led 48-29 at halftime and led by at least 12 points the rest of the way in a 79-64 win over Columbia at Levien Gym. Noruwa Agho matched his career high with 30 points, including 15 of 18 from the foul line. Alex Zampier scored 12 of his 18 points in the first half as Yale jumped out to a 19-point first-half advantage. The Bulldogs made 17 of their 31 shots from the field in the half and made the most of its second chances. Yale outrebounded Columbia 23-10 in the first half and by a 46-27 margin for the game. Sparked by a spirited student section on Greek Spirit Night, Columbia started out the second half seeking a second straight comeback win. Agho was fouled on a three-point attempt at the start of the half and sank all three free throws, bringing the Lions within 16. Columbia cut the Yale lead to 54-42 when Agho found Zack Crimmins open for a short baseline jumper with 12:41 left in the game, seemingly plenty of time for a Lions’ squad that had rallied from 15 points down a night earlier against Brown. Yale stymied Columbia’s rally this time, continuing to control the boards and converting from the foul line. The Bulldogs made 32 of 38 from the line, while the Lions made 24 of 34 in the game, which had 47 fouls called. Agho scored 19 of his 30 in the second half, matching his career performance from earlier this season at Wagner. Brian Grimes added nine points and five rebounds for the Lions. Zampier’s 18 led Yale, which also received 13 points and eight rebounds from Paul Nelson and 12 points and 10 boards from Greg Mangano.

Game 21 – Princeton 55, Columbia 45

Game 22 – Columbia 66, Penn 62

PRINCETON, N.J. – Columbia displayed arguably its grittiest performance of the year but the Princeton defense forced the Lions to 22 percent shooting in the second half as the Tigers rallied for a 55-45 win. After getting out to slow starts in both games last weekend, Columbia came out with energy and focus against Princeton, jumping out to a 5-0 lead after the first 3:30. Columbia three-quarter court trapping defense confounded Princeton as the Lions limited the Tigers to 4-of-13 shooting over the first 15 minutes. Meanwhile, the Lions hit 50 percent from the field in the first half and held a 22-11 lead on a driving layup by Niko Scott with five minutes remaining in the half. From that point, Princeton found a bit of an offensive groove and went on an 11-2 run to cut the Columbia lead to 24-22 with 41 seconds left in the half. The Lions held a 27-24 lead going into halftime. Making his first start in a Columbia uniform, Max Craig dominated the first five minutes of the second half. Craig scored on a pair of consecutive dunks sandwiched around a free throw and ultimately scored the Lions’ first seven points of the half. On the other end, Davis hit a pair of three-pointers to cut into the margin but after Brian Barbour nailed a wide-open three-pointer, his second of the game, Columbia still led 37-33 at the 13-minute mark. After that point, the Lions went cold from the field. Princeton’s defense tightened, holding Columbia without a field goal for the next 12 minutes. Kareem Maddox made two free throws to tie the game at 37 with 10 minutes left and on the next trip down, Davis hit an off-balance jumper to give Princeton its first lead of the game. Princeton’s run eventually was an 18-2 spurt, as Columbia’s next field goal came with 1:15 remaining when Agho hit a contested threepointer. Princeton made six of its final seven shots from the foul line to seal the win. Agho led Columbia with 15 points, three assists and two steals. Craig finished with a season-high 10 points, while Niko Scott added seven for Columbia.

PHILADELPHIA – Columbia fended off a feverish Penn comeback, making huge plays down the stretch for a hard-fought 66-62 win over Penn at the Palestra. A night after the Quakers upset 22nd-ranked Cornell, Columbia came out on fire, sparked by a career-high 29 points from Niko Scott, who made 10 of 14 from the field and seven of nine from long range. Columbia made its first five shots of the game, including three three-pointers by Scott to take a quick 14-5 advantage. The Lions pushed their lead to 15 points on a banked-in jumper by Scott, going ahead 31-16 with 6:24 left in the first half. Penn then closed out the half on a 12-4 run, including a pair of threes by Darren Smith. Columbia still led, 35-28, at halftime. Columbia still led by 11 points, 42-31, on Scott’s sixth three of the game, but the game took a turn at that point with 17 minutes to go. Penn scored 11 unanswered points over the next four minutes to tie the game and each team increased its levels of intensity down the stretch. After the Lions briefly went out in front, Penn grabbed its first lead of the game when Zack Rosen, who was hounded by Kevin Bulger and Brian Barbour all night, drew a foul and sank two free throws, giving the Quakers a 50-48 lead at the seven-minute mark. After the teams traded small leads, Noruwa Agho hit his first shot of the game, a huge three ball with a hand in his face to give the Lions a 56-54 lead at the four-minute mark. Columbia went up by five points on a coast-to-coast steal and layup by Asenso Ampim, who had 12 points off the bench, giving the Lions what seemed like a huge advantage, 60-55 with three minutes left. Rob Belcore, who guarded Agho tightly all night, then made a threepointer from the corner that bounced off the back rim and came down through the net to bring Penn back within two points. Columbia was still ahead 64-62 with 20 seconds left. Rosen drove to his left, tried to draw a foul but Ampim came up with a blocked shot and controlled possession. After Penn committed two fouls to get the Lions in the bonus situation, John Daniels strode to the foul line and made two clutch free throws to give Columbia a two-possession lead, 66-62, with 4.2 seconds left.corers.

Game 23 – Dartmouth 48, Columbia 44

Game 24 – Harvard 77, Columbia 57

HANOVER, N.H. – Columbia rallied from a nine-point second-half deficit to tie the game with two minutes remaining but could not pull ahead as Dartmouth came out with a 48-44 win at Leede Arena. It was an inauspicious and foreboding first nine minutes of the game for the Lions, who trailed 9-0 after the first nine and a half minutes. Niko Scott broke the drought by draining a three-pointer in transition and Kevin Bulger followed with a steal at half court and scored to give Columbia a quick five points in 17 seconds after they were held scoreless. The two teams continued to remain cold from the field throughout the first half as both Columbia and Dartmouth combined for 19 turnovers in the half. After the first 20 minutes, Dartmouth led 17-15. After the cold-shooting first half, both sides picked it up in the second stanza. Dartmouth started the second half by hitting its first four shots from the field but Columbia responded with a Noruwa Agho three-pointer that brought the Lions within three at 25-22. The Lions got within a point when Scott sank two free throws, but Dartmouth ripped off a 12-4 run, capped by a three-point play by Jabari Trotter at the 9:48 mark that put Dartmouth out in front, 37-28. Columbia answered with a 10-2 run of its own, sparked by six points by Asenso Ampim, who led the Lions with 10 points off the bench. The Lions continued to trail by a single possession until the 2:42 mark, when Brian Grimes scored in the post to tie the game at 44. Dartmouth went ahead on two Clive Weeden free throws on the next possession, when it appeared that Bulger drew a charge near the basket. However, Columbia had three chances to tie the game in the final minutes but could not convert. Dartmouth’s Ronnie Dixon then hit two free throws with 15 seconds left to seal it for the Big Green.

BOSTON – Harvard’s Oliver McNally scored 20 first-half points as the Crimson made eight three-pointers and shot 55.6 percent in the half on their way to a 77-57 victory over Columbia at Lavietes Pavilion. After struggling offensively the previous night at Dartmouth, Columbia came out with more passion and intensity at the outset against Harvard. The Lions hit four of their first five shots and after Noruwa Agho nailed a three-pointer at the 15-minute mark, Columbia had a 10-9 lead. From that point, McNally buried consecutive three-pointers and then hit a pair of foul shots to put Harvard back in front, 17-10. That kick-started what was ultimately a 15-0 Harvard run. With the first half winding down, Niko Scott sank a pretty midrange jumper to cut the Harvard lead to 42-26 but Christian Webster hit a three from the corner at the buzzer to give the Crimson a 45-26 lead at halftime. Columbia continued to fly all over the court on defense and began to execute offensively to start the second half. The Lions would trail by no fewer than 15 points in the half, however. Asenso Ampim provided a highlight play with a thunderous putback slam on a missed three-pointer at the beginning of the second half, but two possessions later, Webster hit another three to push the Harvard lead to 19. Columbia’s defense stepped up in the second half as the Lions essentially played the Crimson even. Columbia held Harvard to 43.5 percent shooting in the half after the Crimson shot 55.6 percent in the first half and the Lions forced nine Harvard turnovers after the Crimson had just five in the first half. Agho scored 11 of his 18 in the second half, while Scott added 11 for the Lions. Brian Barbour continued his solid play off the bench with six points, five rebounds and three assists with just one turnover.
