Around the Ivy League: Penn (8-20 / 5-6) led the entire way versus Harvard (17-9 / 9-3) but a landscape-altering result was not secure until Christian Webster's three point shot came up short of the rim at the horn with the Crimson trailing by three. Yale (12-17 / 6-6) won 79-70 at beguiling Cornell (13-16 / 5-7). A Tucker Halpern three point shot at the buzzer gave Brown (12-14 / 6-6) the 61-58 decision against Columbia (11-14 / 3-8).

I talked with former Tiger Matt Sargeant last October about his entrance into the coaching ranks. "If we won the league this year it would be shocking to other people. Not to me, but to other people in the Orange County girls basketball landscape," he said then. Well, Sargeant's Lady Griffins of Los Alamitos High School won their first ever Sunset League championship Tuesday night. They finished the regular season 9-1 in conference and 21-5 overall.

Mitch Henderson may not have remembered during this week's interview, but as a reader noticed, Henderson was part of a Princeton team that made seven straight three pointers in 1998.

The Trentonian and the Daily Princeton preview tonight's contest.

Oregon State welcomes Utah tonight.

Mercer 62 Manor 58.

Postgame audio - Coach Howie Levy:

Mercer County Community College pushed the start of Tuesday night's game against Manor back an hour so head coach Howie Levy could go see his son Lior suit up for Princeton High School versus Notre Dame. Levy then rushed across the county to suffer a different class of agony than the pain created by helplessly watching your child play a sport. Switching from the stands to the sidelines, Levy saw his MCCC squad fall behind early in the first half after taking an immediate 5-0 lead and struggle to catch the visiting Blue Jays.

Knowing that Mercer had raced past Manor on the road 99-80 a month previous, it was difficult to witness the Vikings struggle against a rangy, lateral zone. Center Filip Sekulic was unable to get many touches moving from block to block behind the defense and 5'4" guard Larry Webster's constant raining of three point shots off the bench from in front of the zone routinely landed short.
