Today Fairfield closes MAAC regular season play at Marist.
Oh! If you're interested in Seniors on a Stick for any of the five Tigers honored yesterday, please let me know. Demand exceeded supply and I'd be happy to run off a few more on request.
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).
In the lowest-scoring game in MAAC history, Manhattan topped Fairfield (17-13) by a 34-31 final.
Richmond plays at Dayton, Mercer's in the Region XIX finals (which you can stream live video of here for free), Denver hosts New Mexico State and Georgetown welcomes Rutgers late.
Below, Rich Chvotkin has the call for the conclusion of the Hoyas' double OT win at UConn.
Around the Ivy League: Brown (11-14 / 5-6) made 13 three pointers in a 84-65 win at Shonn Miller-less Cornell (13-15 / 5-6). Maodo Lo had a career high 20 as Columbia (12-13 / 4-7) stopped Yale (11-17 / 5-6) by 13. Dartmouth (7-18 / 3-8) heads to Jadwin Gym on the heels of just their sixth win at The Palestra, 69-64 over Penn (7-20 / 4-6).
Mercer (21-9) advanced to their third Region XIX championship game in the past four years with a 91-55 win over Lackawanna. Filip Sekulic had 26 in the victory. The Vikings will play Essex for the title on Saturday at 5:00 pm ET. Bookmark this link to stream the game live.
In a rather similar script to their meeting in Columbus, Northwestern (13-16) led Ohio State by one with less than four minutes remaining before the Buckeyes closed on a 15-4 spurt.
Oregon rallied past Oregon State (13-16) in the second half, 85-75.
After Harvard/Princeton wraps, Fairfield at Manhattan will be broadcast on ESPNU.
33 points from D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera was the highest scoring output by a Hoya freshman under John Thompson III as Georgetown (20-4) won their eighth straight 90-66 over DePaul. DSR shot 10-12 from the field, 5-6 behind the arc and 8-10 at the line.
Scoring remained an issue for Northwestern (13-14), who went down 69-41 against #19 Wisconsin.
Princeton recruit Amir Bell and East Brunswick advanced to the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament final.

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.
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.
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.
