Thursday News:

Did you know Princeton is one of six schools to make the NCAA's Public Recognition List since the Academic Progress Rate began in 2006? Well, now you do.

Here's a helpful directory of who is playing on each Kenner League team. This document will be updated as the summer goes on.

Georgetown recruit Stephen Domingo will apparently enroll in college immediately, a year earlier than expected.

Former Hoya Hollis Thompson has signed a three year deal with Oklahoma City.

Oregon State's Craig Robinson answers some offseason questions.

Bill Carmody likes Northwestern's newfound depth. The Wildcats also appear to be moving up in the recruiting world.

Happy birthday, Coach Carril.

A happy birthday to Dr. Peter J. Carril, who turns 82 today.

Brett MacConnell is Princeton's new DOBO.

Montgomery High School and Rutgers graduate Brett MacConnell has been hired as Princeton's new Director of Basketball Operations, replacing the departed Kendrick Saunders.

MacConnell previously held the same position at St. Peter's for one season and has also coached at Holy Family University and Delaware Valley College. While enrolled at Rutgers he was a manager all four years for the men's basketball team.

In 2009 MacConnell made the Northstar Basketball list of "Local Soon-to-be Division I Assistant Coaches."

Also of interest, it was MacConnell who tipped the Siena coaching staff to speedy guard Evan Hymes, who torched Princeton in Albany last season.

Monday News:

As we hit the All-Star break, San Diego's Will Venable is slumping, hitting .091 in his last 10 games and down to .248 for the season. Venable has six home runs, 16 doubles and 21 RBIs as baseball pauses midway through the campaign.

Since returning from injury in June, Chris Young has started six games for the Mets. His 2-2 record disguises a 3.41 ERA. Young has pitched at least five innings in each of his starts.

After throwing six shutout innings against Philadelphia the last time out, Young was touched up for three runs in the seventh as the Phillies rallied past New York. Batters are hitting far better versus Young the third time through the lineup.

Pete Carril is part of the first class that will be inducted into the Reading High Athletic Hall of Fame.

The big news out of the town just north of the one I'm currently in was that the highest-rated prospect in a decade committed to Northwestern.

Several current and former Princeton players will suit up at the DelCo Pro-Am. Games kick off this Sunday.

Like the Tigers, Richmond also will be heading overseas in August.

He never played in college due to injury, but being hobbled actually set in motion the start of a relationship for Brian Elbogen, who got married last weekend. Aw.
