When sophomore Kevin Silva scored midway into overtime in the game to determine the Ivy League championship against Brown, the partying began.

Yes, the Crimson still had to wait until the next day to find out if it would get the Ivy League's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. (if Columbia beat Dartmouth, then the Lions would head for the tourney.)

When Columbia lost the next day, the celebration was much smaller and more civil.
