Cornell's Women's Basketball Wins Championship, Goes to NCAA Tournament

Cornell's women's basketball team defeated Dartmouth, 64 -47, to win the Ivy League title and advance to the NCAA playoffs.

Cornell started the game with 11 unmatched points. Dartmouth failed to score for the first six minutes.

The Big Red entered the second half leading 32-19, and went on a 12-2 run.

Jeomi Maduka, the Ivy League player of the year, and Moina Snyder each scored 14 points.

The team's 20 regular-season victories shattered its old record best of 12.

Cornell is the first team in Ivy League history to send both its women's and men's teams to the post-season in the same year.

Today, the men's team will find out where it is seeded in the post-season competition.
