AROUND THE IVY: 10/12-10/13

Nov. 12:
Yale 35, St. Joseph’s 61
Typically one of the stronger team’s in the league, James Jones’ Yale squad looks like it might be in for a tough season after falling to 0-2 in blowout fashion at the hands of the Hawks. Perhaps most troubling for the Bulldogs was that senior guard Austin Morgan, who had put up 28 points in their opening loss to Sacred Heart, was held to just four points on 1-9 shooting.

Penn 69, Delaware 84
The Quakers looked fine on the offensive end, with Myles Cartwright and Fran Dougherty scoring 20 and 21 points, respectively. The problem for Jerome Allen’s squad is on defense. Freshman guards Tony Hicks and Jamal Lewis both played more than 20 minutes.

Nov. 13:
Harvard 64, UMass 67
The Crimson probably should have beat the Minutemen in this mid-morning tilt, but the sophomore duo of Wesley Saunders and Steve Mondou-Missi combined to shoot 5-20 from the floor. Freshman guard Siyani Chambers continued his early bid for Ivy Rookie of the Year, playing all 40 minutes and scoring 14 points.

Upcoming games:
Nov. 13:
Penn vs. Fairfield (NIT Season Tip-Off at Charlottesville, Va.) 4:30 pm.
New Hampshire at Dartmouth, 7 pm.
Northeastern at Princeton, 7 pm.
Haverford at Columbia, 7:30 pm.
