NEW YORK — The Dartmouth College men’s basketball team retains hope — still faint — of making the Ivy League postseason tournament, in part because of Saturday night’s 76-57 rout of Columbia at Levien Gymnasium.

Chris Knight produced a 19-point, 10-rebound double-double, his fourth in five games, to power the Big Green (12-15, 5-7). James Foye followed with 15 points.

Dartmouth rode a barrage of first-half 3-pointers to a 37-30 halftime lead, then put the game in Knight’s hands in the second. The Big Green hit 12 of 36 attempts from beyond the arc and shot 43.1% from the floor on the night.

With Penn beating Brown, 73-68, on Saturday, Dartmouth now sits one game behind both the Quakers and Bears for the fourth and final league tourney slot with two games to play.

Ivy-leading Yale comes to Leede Arena to face Dartmouth on Friday night before Brown comes to town in what could be a winner-take-all contest for a spot in the four-team conference tourney.
