HANOVER, N.H. -- Alex Mitola scored 21 points to lead Dartmouth to a 64-58 victory over Columbia in each team's regular-season finale Saturday night.
Mitola hit 4 of 6 3-pointers for Dartmouth (9-19, 5-9 Ivy League), which also beat Columbia 60-57 on Feb. 8. Gabas Maldunas, who scored a career-high 28 in the team's win over Cornell Friday, added 16 points and nine rebounds Saturday. Connor Boehm had 12 points off the bench.
Columbia (12-16, 4-10) led 33-27 at the intermission, but Dartmouth opened the second half with an 11-2 run. After four lead changes, a 6-0 run put the Big Green up 57-52 with 1:47 left and they finished with seven free throws to clinch victory.
Dartmouth shot 54.3 percent (19 of 35) to Columbia's 34.1 percent (15 of 44).
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
