A home victory over Dartmouth Feb. 25 clinched WOMEN’S BASKETBALL’s third straight Ivy League title and another trip to the NCAA Tournament. Earlier in the month, star forward Niveen Rasheed ’13, above, picked up her 1,000th point in an 84–56 blowout of the Harvard Crimson, joining teammates ­Lauren Edwards ’12 and Devona ­Allgood ’12 in the 1,000-point club.

MEN’S BASKETBALL jumped back to the top half of the league with a four-game win streak at home, including a dramatic 70–62 upset Feb. 11 over Harvard, which entered the game ranked in the top 25 nationally. The Crimson came back with a 67–64 victory Feb. 24 in a tight game in Cambridge, effectively ending the Tigers’ hopes of a second straight championship­.

WOMEN’S SQUASH fell short in its quest for a national title, losing to Yale Feb. 25 in the semifinals and ultimately taking fourth place.

Seeded seventh in the ECAC Tournament, WOMEN’S HOCKEY was swept by nationally ranked Harvard Feb. 24–25 in the quarterfinals, two games to none. MEN’S HOCKEY finished 11th in the league.

MEN’S FENCING and WOMEN’S FENCING each went undefeated at the Ivy Round-Robin Feb. 11–12, sweeping the conference championships as they did in 2010.
