The Ivy League announced they will be launching a conference-wide digital broadcast network. This is great news, but I'm curious how much the statement "streams will come from the schools' own production teams" shall expose the different levels of production value and video quality available from the top to the bottom of the conference.
If Kareem Maddox really is only "scratching the surface" of his capability, oh boy. Maddox had a double-double in each leg of Newcastle's BBL semifinals versus Surrey. The Eagles advanced easily on aggregate to the tournament finals.
Here's a photo of the Princeton men's/women's basketball teams, who joined forces to win the school-wide dodgeball tournament.

The first-ever postseason victory for Denver (22-9) sure was exciting. Ohio's Reggie Kelly missed a potentially-tying jump hook in the lane with seven seconds left and with the Bobcats looking to foul senior Chase Hallem chucked a long outlet to Jalen Love who immediately offered a touch pass back to Royce O'Neale for the game-clinching dunk with one tick remaining. The Pioneers advance to play at Maryland tomorrow night in the NIT's second round.
