Sunday News:

The past met the present at Georgetown for Midnight Madness.

A guard from Indianapolis who ranks in the top 50 in the eyes of all three primary recruiting services will join the Hoyas next season.

Seton Hall recently watched a point guard one site expects to choose between Princeton and Harvard.

Sticking with recruiting, here are some quotes from Edo Lawrence on his decision to attend Princeton.

I'd like to read more about word association with Chris Mooney.

Denver returned to the basketball floor on Friday night and the 2011-12 Fairfield Stags debuted at Red Sea Madness.

Happy birthday to Stephen Goldsmith!

A trip to the Delco Pro-Am.

My schedule and the schedule of the NCAA-accredited Delaware County Pro-Am summer league finally synchronized on Sunday, so Stephen Goldsmith and I set forth on a 45 minute drive to King of Prussia, PA in hopes of seeing a few current and former Princeton players in action.

Stephen Goldsmith, high school graduate!

It was a series of small, fortunate bounces that drew Stephen Goldsmith and I together. A teacher out for the day. A casual conversation that touched upon Princeton basketball. A passing introduction while both at Jadwin Gym after a football game.

That was over four years ago, the inadvertent genesis of what would become a partnership between the two of us which brought endless stellar photographs to this site since 2007 and brought a young man into my life who I've greatly enjoyed watching mature.

Along the way Stephen became friends with many of you as he turned what were once my silent, solitary drives to question-filled discussions from gym to gym.

Hard as it is for me to conceive, Stephen Goldsmith graduates high school today. As someone who likes to embarrass those he cares about when they achieve something significant, this occasion is worth posting here publicly.

Over the weekend there was a graduation party at the Goldsmiths'. Stephen's grandfather was able to surprise him with a autographed photo of Coach Carril (pictured above). This image - shot by Stephen - ran in Sports Illustrated in 2009, allowing him to accomplish the only life goal he ever shared with me by age 16.

While Stephen's grandfather was pulling off this surprise, I was simultaneously working covertly with a secret agent at Jadwin (let's call him "LS") to bowl SG over with a basketball signed by all of the 2010-11 Tigers - a way to remember our final, monumental journey together before he heads off to college in Florida in the fall.

When I presented this gift to Stephen his face lit up as I imagine mine would have if you had handed me a ball signed by the 1990-91 Princeton team two decades previous.

For once, Stephen was speechless.

Congratulations Stephen! I'm very proud of you and I'm certainly not alone in that sentiment.

Wednesday News:

A 29th round selection in the 1994 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft, Mitch Henderson will be on the field of the team that selected him this evening. The Yankees will recognize 10 collegiate coaches connected to Coaches vs. Cancer at home plate before New York and Kansas City play. Henderson is among those expected to attend the ceremony.

Stephen Goldsmith unexpectedly ran into a familiar face who now has some time on his hands at Hoagie Haven yesterday afternoon.

It is not a great shock what the Daily Princetonian has selected as their game of the year.

Craig Robinson will be part of a panel discussion on May 17th as part of a new film series at Oregon State.

A forward from southern Indiana will play for the defending Division II national champion over interest from Penn and Princeton.

Former Tiger Bill Kingston has become the the winningest high school tennis coach in history. In 38 years, his teams have an incredible 957-171 record.

Pictures of the Year.

This season a photographer captured the action at 34 different games, 28 of which were Stephen Goldsmith's fine work.

Picking favorite photos from 2010-11 shot by Stephen Goldsmith or Robert Solomon was not an easy task.

In his fourth season with the site, Stephen's images continued to help enhance my game stories and analysis. His visuals have given members unable to regularly attend Princeton contests a better understanding of specific situations involving this year's team and have often been the only pictures capturing many moments, both home and away.

I know I speak for many of us when I say I'm not sure what I'll do without him next season as he heads to Florida for college.

As I did a year ago, I've hand-selected my favorite photos Stephen and Robert took exclusively for

My editorial choices were even harder than the ones I had to make last season, the end result of lengthy review and great internal debate. Thus, I'm including 30 snapshots compared to last season's 15.

These are both the pictures of the year as well as the Pictures of the Year.
