Friday college basketball action pits the Dartmouth Big Green against the Columbia Lions.

The Dartmouth Big Green have dropped six in a row after a 65-61 loss against the visiting Penn Quakers as a 1.5 point underdog on Saturday.

The Big Green saw 13 points, two yanks and two assists from James Foye with Aaryn Rai tossing in another 12 points and two pulls.

Chris Knight gave Dartmouth seven points, six boards and three helpers followed by Guilien Smith with seven points and five rebounds.

The Columbia Lions are eyeing back to back wins following an 80-77 victory at the Brown Bears as a 4.5 point underdog a week ago.

Quinton Adlesh keyed the Lions upset with 19 points and six helpers with Patrick Tape netting 16 points with six boards and three assists.

Randy Brumant gave Columbia 12 points, three yanks and three helpers followed by Tai Bibbs and Ike Nweke netted nine and eight points and a combined nine rebounds.

Dartmouth Big Green are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and are 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 games following a ATS loss and  are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.

Columbia Lions are 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games following a straight up win and  are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and  are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win.

Dartmouth Big Green are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings and home team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings and under is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings in Columbia.

These teams are  eerily similar so I’ll take the points in a unpredictable Ivy League matchup…

Pick:
Dartmouth +3

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
