Half the Ivies are in action today, so someone should definitely end the league-wide six-game losing streak that dropped the overall record to 22-27.

Either Hartford is better than we think, or Yale lost a game by 16 last night that it should have won. True, the Hawks are 4-2, but they’re responsible for Brown’s only win of the season and their other three wins are over teams with a combined record of 5-14.
