Basketball is a small world. Princeton recruit Spencer Weisz will join Howie Levy's son Lior and Scott Greenman's brother Michael on the United States' Youth Team coached by Harvard assistant Yanni Hufnagel at the 19th Maccabiah Games in Israel this July.
Kareem Maddox Made both the BBL's Team of the Year and Defensive Team of the Year.
Georgetown's Otto Porter has declared for the NBA Draft while Oregon State's Eric Moreland will remain with the Beavers for another season.
Scott Greenman is one of those scheduled to suit up at the 24th Annual Chuck’s 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament.
The Cornell schedule for 2012-13 has been released, allowing the insertion of games versus the Big Red and Columbia in the tentative schedule to your right.
I think it is fair to also expect the Dartmouth/Harvard road trip to be the weekend of February 16th and those two teams to return to Jadwin in reverse order the weekend of March 1st. If Penn concludes the conference slate (as tradition has dictated), the only remaining question is where the first game versus the Quakers slots and whether that would come prior to the exam break or not.
Will Venable (video) dropped in a two run double to give San Diego a lead they would not relinquish versus San Francisco yesterday.

Princeton recruit Hans Brase had a big game on the opening day of the Dave Mercer Invitational Tournament.
If you spent any time around the Princeton program in the mid-2000s, one constant was Scott Greenman's kid brother Mikey dribbling a basketball everywhere he went. Now a sophomore in high school, the younger Greenman is the centerpiece of a story on the psychological pressure young athletes face.
I had such a good time putting together Rutgers: Past, Present, Future last week that I decided to dig into the archives once more and pull up what I wrote the prior two times Princeton played Rider. This home and home series took place in 2001 and 2002. Full recaps of both contests can be found after the jump.
In addition to this site's weekly in-season interviews with John Thompson III, Joe Scott and Sydney Johnson, princetonbasketball.com has produced numerous pieces with former Princeton players over the past decade+.
The summer struck me as a good time to collect the archived links to all of the Q&As, transcripts, email correspondence and audio files into one post for newer members who might have missed some of these when they originally ran.
I believe this is a complete list, but if I'm missing anyone let me know!
Scott Greenman has been promoted at Georgetown. He is now the Hoyas' Director of Basketball Operations. Greenman also popped up on Twitter, so I've added him to our updated list of current and former Princeton players working with 140 characters or less.
Craig Robinson continues to make the talk show rounds, including an appearance on the Mike Wise Show (audio). Robinson's Oregon State team will play at the Meadowlands in early November for the championship portion of the Legends Classic.
Later that same month Northwestern will visit Georgia Tech in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Bill Carmody announced today that Tavaras Hardy is now the Wildcats' associate head coach.
This question has come up several times over the last 10 days, and I don't have a great answer.
If Gabe Lewullis' 1996 NCAA Tournament layup versus defending champion UCLA is the biggest basket in the shot clock/three point shot/modern era of Princeton basketball (even though if Lewullis misses the game is almost certainly going to overtime) and Douglas Davis' jumper at the buzzer versus Harvard to win the 2011 Ivy League playoff is a close second, what's third?
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. This site is not directly affiliated with the Friends of Princeton Basketball, Princeton University or the Princeton athletic department.
