PRINCETON, N.J. — Beginning with next season, the Ivy League men’s and women’s basketball conference schedule will switch from an eight-week to a 10-week slate. League play for all 16 teams will start on Jan. 2, 2021.

The change will consist of six one-game weekends and three of the league’s signature Friday-Saturday back-to-backs. Every team will also play a game on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“This new format accomplishes two of our chief priorities: To create a structure that is fair and equitable over time and continues to minimize the impact on missed class time for our student-athletes,” Ivy League executive director Robin Harris said in a news release.

This decision comes with Princeton’s academic calendar moving from January to December, one of the reasons the move hadn’t been made earlier.

SKIING Mangan honored by EISA

HANOVER — Dartmouth junior Tricia Mangan was chosed by the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association as its alpine skier of the week on Monday.

Mangan hit the podium in both of her races at last weekend’s Vermont Carnival in Stowe.

The Buffalo, N.Y., native, who competed for the United States at the 2018 Olympics, was second in Friday’s giant slalom (two-run time of 2:16.40) and repeated the placement in Saturday’s slalom (1:54.34).

Mangan has amassed seven runner-up finishes and one third in a little over a year on the carnival circuit. She and the Big Green head to the Colby Carnival in Maine this weekend.
