Harvard 67 Princeton 64.

Postgame audio - Coach Mitch Henderson:

Postgame audio - Patrick Saunders & Ian Hummer:

The nation’s second-longest home winning streak lives on, but barely.

After desperately chasing Princeton since nearly the midway point of the first half, Harvard turned up the pressure and finally passed the Tigers for good during a 6:15 stretch well into the back stanza wherein the orange and black went scoreless.

The Crimson were only able to extend their slim lead to 59-55 on a Brandyn Curry shot that lipped in and were able to hold off every last Princeton push for their 28th consecutive victory in Lavietes Pavilion.

“I was really proud of our guys,” said head coach Mitch Henderson after a defeat that all-but-officially snuffs the Tigers’ hope for a portion of the Ivy title. “I thought the game could have gone a number of different ways.”

A pair of Kyle Casey free throws provided his team with a three point advantage as :34 remained. Princeton went for a quick two but Ian Hummer could not convert over Casey inside and Oliver McNally’s four free throws were enough to offset a T.J. Bray three pointer.

Hummer and Douglas Davis led the way for Princeton with 14 apiece but three of Davis’ total came on a harmless 35′ jumper to halve the Tigers’ deficit at the buzzer. Patrick Saunders scored all 12 of his tallies in the first half on three straight three point shots and a three point play as Princeton turned a 9-1 hole into as wide as a 10 point lead before Harvard closed the half on a 9-0 run.

Casey’s 20 championed Harvard, one of three Crimson starters in double digits.

Made it to Boston. Today's news has been updated with the promised articles. I've also heard from a few people with extra tickets for this evening's tilt if anyone is interested. - JS

Ivy Hoops Online, the Daily Princetonian, the Harvard Crimson, WEEI and the Boston Globe preview tonight's game.

The Crimson also did a Q&A with Kevin from the Princetonian.

Here is a Princeton Alumni Weekly opinion piece on Princeton's offense.

The Tigers placed 11th in the final Big Apple Buckets power poll of the regular season. I had the orange and black seventh on my ballot, behind Yale and ahead of Rutgers.

A game behind the Gaels in the conference standings, Fairfield plays at Iona tonight.

If you're new to the site, you might have missed an epic 11,000+ word piece from nearly a year ago entitled Lavietes Pavilion: Where anything could happen, will happen and probably already has happened.

This chronological game-by-game review of 10 consecutive trips by the Tigers to Allston includes detailed recaps, photos and videos from a frequently bonkers road series.

Add on top of that a writeup and photos from last year's 79-67 Princeton loss and you have a decade+ of historical information to read/watch/listen to between now and Friday's game.

It is one of the biggest (and best) things we've ever assembled and worthy of renewed attention on the eve of another Princeton/Harvard tilt.

Know! Your! Foe! - Harvard & Dartmouth updates.

Hot on the heels of last week's Columbia and Cornell updates in our Know! Your! Foe! series we're back with Q&As about this weekend's opponents.

After the jump you'll find wise words from Michael James of 14-Game Tournament and Bruce Wood from Big Green Alert.

Both do a superb job updating the play of opposition Princeton initially faced less than two weeks ago.

If you want to read their original takes on these teams, please check out these Harvard and Dartmouth K!Y!F! posts.

Additionally, if you cover a team the Tigers will face down the line, let us know. It would be great to talk with you.

Coach Mitch Henderson - 2/22/12.

Prior to practice this afternoon, Tigers head coach Mitch Henderson and editor Jon Solomon sat down courtside at Jadwin Gym to tape their weekly interview.

Henderson and Solomon reviewed Princeton's recent sweep of Columbia and Cornell extensively and previewed the regular season's final road trip at Harvard and Dartmouth as well.

During the conversation the pair also talked about the improvements of sophomore point guard T.J. Bray, the rise in the depth chart of Jimmy Sherburne and what numbers in a box score interest Henderson after a game.

This exclusive Q&A is 14:00+ in length.

Northwestern (16-11) fell in overtime to #11 Michigan for the second straight time. Highlights from the (agonizing) game are above.

These clips are fueled by the site's new video player, a smaller version of which can be found to your right in the sidebar. I've loaded it with clips of NU and Oregon State games, with more footage to be added as available.

As we wrote about last night, Georgetown (20-6) was trampled by Seton Hall, 73-55. Hoya Prospectus crunches the numbers.

Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach John Thompson III, Henry Sims & Jason Clark:

I've never fully understood the "o-ver-ra-ted!" chant. Don't you want the team you're beating to be as good as you expected if not better? Doesn't that say more about the school you support?

Still, such a cheer broke out half-heartedly with 2:04 left in the second half tonight in Newark with Seton Hall (19-9) up 64-49 on #8 Georgetown (20-6).

Perhaps it was deserved. The Hoyas didn't play much like a Top 10 team and Seton Hall performed like a school on the NCAA Tournament bubble desperate for a marquee victory.

Jordan Theodore was magnificent for the Pirates, scoring 29 points on 8-11 shooting including 5-5 from three point range and 8-8 at the free throw line.

John Thompson III's team was holding opponents to 38.0% shooting from the floor and 27.8% from behind the arc in Big East play but Seton Hall lit them up from all over, connecting on 8-13 threes and 61% of all their attempts.

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.

I'm delighted to share with you 11 additional photographs from the collection of David Zeft, the majority of which are from mid-1990s games at The Palestra. Some in this set do also date from the early 1980s.
