Update: Women face No. 1 UConn in first round

NEW YORK CITY — The women’s basketball team defeated Dartmouth, 64-47, to secure its first-ever spot in the NCAA tournament this afternoon at Columbia’s Levien Gym. The Red was locked in a three-way tie with the Green and the Crimson for the Ivy League championship, so the teams were seeded into a playoff to determine who would receive the automatic NCAA and NIT tournament bids. Cornell was randomly selected to have a first-round bye, while Dartmouth defeated Harvard on Friday to earn its matchup with Cornell.

The Red will learn its seed, who it faces in the opening round and when during tomorrow’s women’s basketball selection show.
