Road Team Cashing In Ivy League Clash

Columbia once sat atop the Ivy League, but a third loss within the league will almost certainly doom any chance of making March Madness this season. If playing for their season is not enough motivation to back the Lions, the road team is also 7-0 ATS in the past seven games between Columbia and the Princeton Tigers.

Shark Bites
  • Maodo Lo has averaged 19 points per game in the past four contests.
  • Princeton is 12-1 SU in their past 13 games against Columbia.
  • Columbia is 13-1 ATS in their last 14 games as an underdog of 8.0 or more.

Columbia has easily separated themselves from the bottom tier of the Ivy League, but losses against both Princeton and Yale has put them in limbo. However, Columbia brought Princeton into overtime in their previous contest this season on the back of Grant Mullins' only double-double of the season.

Princeton enters Friday riding a six-game winning streak, a span that has seen them outscore opponents by an average of 10.3 points per game. Star junior Henry Caruso had one of the worst performances of his career when these teams last met, as the forward went 1-for-10 from the field and scored just eight points in 38 minutes of play.
