Alyssa Baron poured in a season-high 28 points, including 16 in a dominant second half as the Penn women's basketball team beat first-place Cornell, 67-57, in Ivy League action at Newman Arena.

Baron finished just one rebound shy of a double-double in leading Penn (13-5, 3-1 Ivy) to its fifth straight win. Cornell falls to 11-8, 3-2. Baron also moved up five spots to 17th on the Ivy League's all-time scoring list.

College of Charleston 71, Drexel 65 - The Dragons dropped their second-straight game as they fell to the host Cougars.

Drexel could not overcome a 21-point first-half deficit as their frantic second-half comeback effort stalled in the final minutes. Rachel Pearson (Archbishop Carroll) scored 21 points to lead all scorers. As a team, Drexel (10-11, 5-3 CAA) hit eight of its 11 three-pointers after intermission as it attempted to overcome an ice-cold start. Fiona Flanagan (Notre Dame Academy) finished with 10 points and seven rebounds, including five offensive boards that were key to the Dragons' second-half spurt.

Princeton 70, Columbia 41 - The Tigers successfully employed a second-half run to come out of New York City with an Ivy League win over the 70-41 win over the Lions.

The Tigers improve to 12-6, 3-1 Ivy on the season, while dropping Columbia to 4-15, 1-4.

Princeton's Alex Wheatley (Council Rock South) led all scorers with a career-high 18 points, going 8 of 10 from the field and a perfect 2 for 2 from the line.

She added five rebounds, two steals and a block in 22 minutes of work.
