This evening Northwestern begins what the Wildcats hope will be a historic run to the NIT title.

Former NU guard and briefly tenured Princeton assistant Craig Moore made 10 three pointers in a game for his Romanian team.

The name Craig Robinson has been mentioned in connection with the open Illinois coaching job.

Basketball was the reason Pete Hegseth chose Princeton over West Point.

The Daily Princetonian, the Daily News and Ivy Hoops Online preview tonight's game.

The final Ivy League Men's Basketball Weekly Release of the season includes Ian Hummer on the Honor Roll.

It was looking decent for Fairfield (19-14) in the championship game of the MAAC Tournament at halftime. The Stags were up four and playing well. The second half however was a brutal defensive struggle where Sydney Johnson's team missed their first 13 attempts from the floor. Three tying shots in the final 1:08 went off the mark and it was Loyola (Md.) advancing to the NCAAs, 48-44. A postseason bid of some fashion is expected.

How about Fairfield against Yale in the CBI or CIT?

Denver (22-9) was knocked out of the Sun Belt semifinals by Western Kentucky, 67-63. Senior guard Brian Stafford had a look for three behind a screen down two with five seconds to go and Royce O'Neale's putback was then blocked. The Hilltoppers sealed the result at the line.

Richmond plays at La Salle tonight to open defense of their conference tournament title. Spiders guard Kendall Anthony is the Atlantic 10's Rookie of the Year.

Bill Carmody talks about Northwestern's NCAA chances.

The Wildcats' John Shurna was named first team All-Big Ten, finishing the season as the conference's leading scorer.

For Georgetown, a brawl in China forged their team's unity. Hoya senior Jason Clark was honored with the Big East's Sportsmanship Award.

The Ivy League is still growing.

Congratulations to Marcus Schroeder, who is headed to the NCAA tournament for the first time as Saint Mary's graduate assistant. The Gaels won the West Coast Conference tournament in overtime, knocking off Gonzaga. It was good to see a smiling Schroeder celebrating on the floor after the final buzzer.

While at Princeton, Pete Hegseth was a polarizing figure.

There are great eBay auctions full of rare memorabilia, and then there is this.

Jesse Agel is out at Brown. A decision was made to not renew his contract.

YouTube potpourri LXIV.

While it may drive me nuts when Princeton players call me "Mr. Solomon," I accept that am an adult.

Yet on Saturday afternoon at the conclusion of the Northwestern/Iowa game from which you can watch highlights above, I found myself lying face down on my living room floor at the base of my television like a petulant child throwing a tantrum, fists pounding on the ground unable to take the emotional torture that the Wildcats have pulled me through this season anymore.

...and this was after they won.

From what my inbox tells me, I'm not alone in my suffering. Here’s the latest collection of videos from various corners of the Princeton basketball family.

Five more clips after the jump.

Fairfield (17-11) built a 28-12 halftime lead and shut down Marist, 60-49.

Straddling the bubble once more, Northwestern hosts #11 Michigan. Like many Wildcat alums, Michael Wilbon is too nervous to watch.

Closer to home, Hollis Thompson and Georgetown play at Seton Hall. Given that the Pirates are adjacent to NU in Bracketology's "Last Four In," it would be kind of the Hoyas to win this game.

Former Tiger Pete Hegseth is close to challenging Amy Klobuchar for her Senate seat in Minnesota.

Monday News:

Wyoming vs. Denver - 8:00 pm ET - Root Sports

Cornell vs. Illinois - 7:00 pm ET - ESPN3

John Shurna hit nine three pointers on his way to a career high 32 points as Northwestern (10-1) won for the third time in three days, 87-72 over Eastern Illinois.

Also hot from outside, Oregon State (9-2) made 13 shots behind the arc in their 101-68 pasting of Portland State.

There's a grass roots campaign to get Pete Hegseth to run for the senate in Minnesota next year.

Hans Brase and the Hill School fell in the finals of the Mercer Invitational Tournament.

Denver takes on Wyoming at Magness Arena tonight.

Around the Ivy League: An extremely rare five point play in the final :18 boosted Yale (8-2) to a 68-65 win at Rhode Island.

YouTube potpourri XLIII.

The Daily Princetonian reviews the Tigers' weekend.

SportsProf wonders if this could be Princeton's year.

Austin Freeman returned from an ankle injury and Georgetown (20-5) used a 25-10 second half run to defeat Marquette, 69-60.

A miserable Northwestern (14-10) effort resulted in a 65-41 loss at Penn State, leaving John Templon of Chicago College Basketball extremely frustrated.

Former Princeton guard Pete Hegseth was a guest on CNN's Parker|Spitzer.

I don't think any of these pieces have correctly guessed the Tigers' starting lineup.

The 14-Game Tournament has great analysis as to why Princeton will trump Harvard for this season's Ivy crown.

The Home News Tribune says this could be the last season for Rutgers/Princeton. Didn't they run the same article last year? There's also a game preview and three keys to victory as part of their coverage.

Former Princeton guard Pete Hegseth wrote an essay for Veteran's Day.

The Washington Post discusses how a guard-heavy Georgetown squad means the Hoyas are no longer "Big Man U."

One of the toughest non-conference schedules in Division I starts with a season-opening trip to Old Dominion for Georgetown.

Reunions 2003 montage.

I completely forgot that I shot and edited this montage for the Friends of Princeton Basketball from Reunions 2003 of the alumni basketball games at Jadwin Gym.

Pictured at different junctures: John Thompson III, Kyle Wente, Ray Robins, Pete Hegseth, Steve Goodrich (with platinum blonde hair!), Jerry Price, Ahmed El-Nokali, Chris Doyal, Jim Lane, Frank Sowinski, Nate Walton, Stu Orefice, Jason Osier, Stan Adleston, Sean Gregory, Gabe Lewullis, Rich Simkus, John Trubee, Christopher Kilburn-Peterson, Jamie Mastaglio, Brian Earl and many others I can't as easily ID.

YouTube potpourri IV.

A handful of videos I haven't had found the right moment to post that have been collected over this week, starting with one of 30+ brief clips from Princeton's 1998 win over UAB. Brian Earl receives a nifty left-handed Chris Young backdoor bounce pass and scores between two defenders.
