Friday News:

The Capital Classic was held last night at American University. Princeton recruit Ben Hazel scored 13 points in 14 minutes as the District All-Stars beat the Suburban All-Stars, 109-100.

In the evening's other game, Georgetown recruit Markel Starks was the MVP for the Capital All-Stars, who defeated the U.S. All-Stars, 117-108. Starks had 18 points in 18 minutes of play.

Awards Banquet.

Princeton held its awards banquet at Jadwin Gym tonight.

The worthy recipients of honors at the 2009-2010 banquet included:

Class of 1959 Bob Rock Sixth Man Award - Kareem Maddox.
B.F. Bunn Trophy - Dan Mavraides & Marcus Schroeder.
Friedman Memorial Award Trophy - Nick Lake.

Douglas Davis and Mavraides also received special recognition from Coach Johnson.

My wife described the banquet experience perfectly midway through the evening, when she turned to me and whispered that she wished this event happened at the beginning of the year, because it made her extremely motivated and excited for a season we all must now wait six months for.

The four seniors gave quiet, touching speeches, with Lake and Schroeder capping an emotional night that ran longer than anticipated, but as Coach Johnson said - this is the last time this group is going to be together as a team, so the coaching staff was in no rush to move on.

Each senior was given a CBI shirt, an orange and black tie and a framed photograph of the scoreboard from the end of the Duquesne/Princeton game.

It remains an honor to attend this event, one of my favorite evenings of the year, even though I will not be able to look at Nick Lake again without thinking of either Robert Patrick or James Hellwig.


Will Venable interview.

Still getting used to seeing Will with a full head of hair.

Tuesday News:

A big night for Will Venable, who tripled, singled and homered to center field (video) in his first three at bats. San Diego scored 10 times in the fourth inning and crushed Atlanta in the Padres' home opener. Of the team's 17 runs, four were recorded by Venable.

While Venable fell a double short of becoming the first San Diego player to hit for the cycle, he is just one of just 30 players in the modern era to steal a base, leg out a triple and go deep in one of their first 129 career games.

Pawel Buczak is quoted in a Daily Princetonian article reacting to the death of Polish president Lech Kaczynski.
