HANOVER — Maybe an early 10-point hole is just where the Dartmouth College men’s basketball team wants to be.

The Big Green spotted Brown the first 10 points of the game Saturday evening at Leede Arena, but came back to take the lead before halftime and then pulled away for a 58-46 win, their first victory since late November. Dartmouth (4-9, 1-1 Ivy League) snapped an eight-game losing streak.

Coincidentally, in their last win before Saturday, the Big Green also trailed 10-0 early at Bryant before rallying to win in overtime.

Freshman guard Ryan Cornish, making his first career start, led Dartmouth with 14 points Saturday. Junior forward Dame Adelekun had a double-double off the bench with 11 points and 12 rebounds. Senior forward Garrison Wade added nine points and 11 boards, including the 3-pointer as the first half expired to give the Big Green their first lead of the game. Tamenang Choh had a game-high 23 points for the Bears.

“I thought we had a great defensive presence throughout the game, especially in the second half,” coach David McLaughlin told Dartmouth athletic communications postgame. “Brown had their run with a couple of nice plays and we committed a turnover against their pressure, but we came back, made some tough shots and then were able to really defend when we had to the last couple possessions.”

The Big Green’s non-conference game Tuesday against Northern Vermont-Johnson was postponed, so Dartmouth will return to action Saturday at Penn.

TRACK AND FIELD

Big Green compete at Multis and Beantown Challenge

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — The Dartmouth women finished third out of seven teams while the women were fifth of eight at the Multis and Beantown Challenge at Harvard on Saturday. Fifth-year Lily Lockhart set a school record in the weight throw with 19.50 meters.

She has bested the program record in every meet this season. Junior Emma Cunningham won the triple jump and junior Anya Hirschfield won the mile.

For the men, sophomore Jacob Fishler set a personal record in the weight throw at 15.32 meters, while senior Thomas Lingard’s time of 4:13 in the mile was a PR and good for third place.

Connecticut won the meet for both genders, with Harvard taking second.

The Big Green head to New Haven, Conn. on Jan. 22 to face Yale and Columbia.

WOMEN’S HOCKEY Big Green fall to Cornell, Colgate on road

Dartmouth (8-10-0, 2-9-0 ECAC Hockey) dropped a pair of contests over the weekend in upstate New York, falling 5-0 to the Big Red on Saturday and 4-2 to the No. 6 Raiders on Sunday.

The Big Green gave up a goal within the first 30 seconds of all three periods in Ithaca, and two within the first two minutes of the third. Freshman goaltender Maggie Emerson was removed after the fifth goal, making 15 saves. Junior Hannah Humphries played the rest of the game and made six saves.

The following day, Dartmouth weathered an early deficit against one of the top teams in the nation, rallying from a 2-0 hole to tie the game late in the second period.

Senior Lotti Odnoga put the Big Green on the board four minutes into the second period with a power play goal, on an assist from sophomore Annie King.

Sophomore Tiffany Hill equalized 12 minutes later for her team-leading seventh goal of the year, with sophomore Sophie Robinson contributing the assist.

But Colgate retook the lead with four seconds to play in the second and then added an insurance goal in the third.

Dara Greig scored both of those goals as part of a hat trick to lead the Raiders. Humphries made 28 saves for Dartmouth.

The Big Green return home Friday to face Yale.
