Columbia Lions Basketball Tickets

There’s no better way to show pride for your alma mater once you get Columbia Basketball tickets. The Ivy League team has been competing at the Division I level for well over 100 years. They were named Conference Regular Season champions for the first time in 1904. After continuing to dominate the league up through the 1940s, they finally managed to make their first NCAA Tournament appearance in 1948. That year was a particularly strong one for the Lions, as they proceeded to the Elite Eight and were named Conference Regular Season champions as well.

Another strong season for Columbia was 1968 when they advanced to the Sweet Sixteen. Over the years, the Lions have spawned a few notable players. Bob Griffin was one of the most renowned. Not only did he go on to play in the Israeli Basketball Premier League, but he also ended up becoming an Associate Professor at Texas A&M once his basketball career was over. Whether you’re a college alumnus or you love a heated game of college ball, Columbia Basketball tickets are the perfect way to treat yourself.

Aside from the most popular tourneys, the Lions have participated in the CIT. They advanced to the quarterfinals in the 2014 CIT, only to lose to Yale in a tight game. 2016 was the first year in which the Lions finally claimed the championship game in the CIT. Although Columbia has intense rivalries with all the Ivy League schools, their rivalry with Cornell is perhaps the most prominent. Each year, the two schools hold a competition known as the Cornell Big Red.
