Fairfield is hosting their second-annual day-long coaching clinic on October 20. Sydney Johnson has again put together an impressive list of guest instructors, as Bill Carmody, Seth Greenberg and Mitch Buonaguro with all be joining him. That's over 800 NCAA victories combined by the guests!
Johnson appears on a David Aldridge list titled "College Basketball Coaches Who Were Studs as Players."

The complete Georgetown schedule for the upcoming season has been released.
August was a career month for Will Venable, who compares rhythm at the plate with shooting a free throw. Home run number 21 (video) for Venable gave him both the San Diego season records for most HRs at Petco Park and most lead-off homers in a Padres career. Venable's slugging percentage tops the National League since the All-Star break.
On Friday night San Diego came from six runs down to beat the Chicago Cubs. In addition to a two run triple off the top of the center field wall, Venable hammered a home run (video) to send the Padres in front late.
Going 9-22 at the plate after a lone hitless performance, Venable's season average has risen all the way to .272. He went deep again (video) on Saturday, HR number 19 for the former Princeton player.

Been traveling for over a week. Let's see what was happening while I was on the road...

princetonbasketball.com was founded on April 28th, 1998 in an attempt to provide fans of the Princeton Tigers and Ivy League basketball with the best on-line source for up-to-date news and information. We have since expanded to launch a companion site, Georgetown Basketball News.
As these sites have continued to grow we have increased our coverage to include additional teams with Princeton connections - the Richmond Spiders, Denver Pioneers, Oregon State Beavers, Fairfield Stags and Mercer County Community College Vikings - plus former Tigers playing professional baseball and basketball all over the world.
