The Princeton Tigers visit the Columbia Lions in Ivy League college basketball action.

The Princeton Tigers ran their winning streak to five games after routing sub-division Wesley College 91-62 on Sunday.

This was never in doubt with Princeton taking a 43-24 lead in to the half behind 46.7% marksmanship and 23 more shots along with a +22 edge on the glass.

Jose Morales led the Tigers scoring spree with 15 points and three yanks followed by Myles Stephens with another 14 points.

Richmond Aririguzoh and Max Johns gave Princeton eleven points each and a combined eight boards while Sebastian Much and Elijah Barnes chipped in with eight points each.

The Columbia Lions defeated Cornell 73-70 on Saturday to avenge a one point loss to the Big Red in their conference opener.

Columbia led by five points heading to the locker room and held Cornel off over the final 20 minutes behind 52.6% shooting.

Gabe Stefanni kept the Lions one step ahead with 24 points, eight rebounds and five helpers with Quinton Adlesh pumping in 21 points.

Patrick Tape gave Columbia ten points and eleven rebounds followed by Ike Nweke who chipped in with six points and five pulls.

Princeton Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Ivy League and  are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win. Columbia  are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games following a straight up win and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Ivy League. Under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings and Princeton Tigers are 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Columbia.

The Ivy League isn’t a conference where you take the better team and walk away but Princeton is the better squad in my eyes…

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.
