Women's basketball - ILT bound

Props to Cornell women's hoops for getting into the Ivy Tournament.

Thanks for bringing this up ugarte. The women really deserve some attention. They finished the season winning 5 of their last 8, even though it involved three Ivy road weekends. They were overwhelmed at Harvard on Friday but then owned the fourth quarter of their play-in game at Dartmouth.

The Yale Undergraduate Analytics Group has been doing weekly expectations for making the ILT. In mid-February, they gave the women a 0.2% chance of making it. That seems absurdly low, but that was the number.

The ILT match-up is versus Princeton who has dominated the Big Red lately (Cornell has one win in the last decade) but their last game was close.

It appears the regular starting rotation should all return next season.

This is great that the women's team made the ILT. It also shows how mixed the team's success in the past was if making the tournament is a big thing.

Is YUAG a real thing?

Cornell was picked to finish last in the preseason poll.

Learning (trying) to meet women. They probably all believe they're the next analytic genius for the Sox.

Was not. Team was picked to finish eighth. Same phrasing as for Cornell football.

Good for the women for making the ILT but Princeton ripped them apart again, this time 68-47.

In fairness, the game at Princeton was close. But, yeah, the Tigers overwhelmed Cornell. Still, a great run and next year could be interesting, though the gap to the two P's is pretty large.
