2012-13 schedules.

The annual ordeal of tedious data entry is complete and I'm happy to report that color coded 2012-13 electronic calendars for each of the "Carril Cradle" teams are available after the jump! You can download any or all of the following to sync with your computer/PDA.

Each basketball schedule will be updated whenever a tip time is adjusted or new TV information is unveiled. If past performance is any indication, I expect multiple revisions between now and November 9. These links will work best with iCal but are importable into Google Calendar.

If you notice any errors with games/dates/times/locations, please let me know.

The Boston Globe has more on plans for a new basketball arena at Harvard. I was surprised that the new gym's capacity would only be ~600 seats larger than Lavietes Pavilion.

Three Ivy contests for the Tigers to air on NBCS.

For the first year of the Ivy League's television deal with NBC Sports Network, the channel picked up a full compliment of potential games including three that feature Princeton:

The Ivy opener on Saturday, January 12 at home versus Penn (6:00 pm ET), when the Tigers host Columbia on Saturday, February 2 (6:00 pm ET) and the orange and black's visit to Harvard on Saturday, February 16 (7:00 pm ET).

It is already known that ESPNU will be broadcasting the second meeting between the Crimson and Princeton.

That's 4/14 of the Tigers' conference slate going out to a national audience.

In addition, I have noticed that Time Warner will air the Syracuse game but the range of that transmission is unknown.

Wednesday News:

The relationship between Ian Hummer and his father is the crux of a Yahoo! Sports profile on the Princeton senior forward.

Yahoo! also ran a full Ivy League preview yesterday.

It is unlikely you will make it all the way through this piece on the relationship between Richmond coach Chris Mooney and a former manager without getting teary-eyed.

Judson Wallace scored eight points on 2-10 shooting and grabbed a game-best 13 rebounds in 22 minutes of play off the bench as FC Barcelona defeated the Dallas Mavericks, 99-85.

While the visiting team played without star Dirk Nowitzi, it was the third straight victory for the top team in Spain over an NBA foe. Wallace did not see action in the first quarter but was a significant contributor the rest of the way with a team-high five assists including a pair of no look perimeter passes that set up three point shots for teammates.

The Princeton alum recorded a left wing three, a rebound follow tipping the ball away from the Mavs' Shawn Marion and a trio of free throws.

Elsewhere in Europe, Kareem Maddox is off to a "dream start" with Newcastle.

J. Richey Nash, who earned a varsity letter as a member of the Tigers in the 1986-87 season, is the writer, star and co-director of a new film titled "Hitting the Cycle" that is making its premiere this week.

La di da di. Georgetown's Midnight Madness will feature Doug E. Fresh.

A prospect from Nevada chose Harvard over Stanford, Princeton, Cal, UC Santa Barbara and Lehigh.

The Crimson have adjusted their roster for the upcoming season. Officially absent are Kyle Casey, Brandyn Curry and junior Matt Brown.

Data has been entered, models have been run and the exhaustive/exhausting 14-Game Tournament 2012-13 Ivy League preview has been posted.

Georgetown's John Thompson III says that the Hoya's new on-campus athletic facility will happen in the "near future."

Oregon State head man Craig Robinson popped up on the campaign trail again, this time in Ohio.

Kareem Maddox followed up a 14 point, nine rebound effort with his best game yet for the undefeated Newcastle Eagles.

Finally, for those of you planning on traveling to Staten Island next month, I received the following email (which I have edited slightly for length and content):

Throwback Thursday: 1964-65.

It was getting downright embarrassing. For over a year I've had two overstuffed boxes of Bill Bradley-era magazines, cutout newspaper articles and handwritten notes staring at me from across my TV room. A site member personally delivered them all last summer and for whatever reason I couldn't bring myself to start digging into bounty so daunting.

It took Brian Earl posting a Princeton scouting report for the Tigers' Final Four team to goad me into action.

So, for this week's "Throwback Thursday" you'll find 15 different scans from the 1964-65 season taken from disparate sources. There's some pretty cool one-of-a-kind stuff alongside images and drawings you may never have seen before. Click on any image to enlarge, and feel free to share memories in the comments or on our forum.

Thursday News:

Find of the week goes to Brian Earl for this scouting report his father gave him of Rutgers' attempts to prepare for Bill Bradley and the rest of the 1964-1965 Princeton Tigers. Of course, Bradley scored 35 points in this game and the orange and black led by 27 at halftime. So much for scouting reports!

The Padres' season concluded last night with a 7-6 win at Milwaukee. For the year Will Venable hit .264 in 148 games (equalling his career high) with 26 doubles, eight triples, nine home runs and 24 stolen bases. His strikeout/game ratio also dropped for the third straight season.

A brief video of Armond Hill coaching the Celtics' rookies.

This is an interesting piece on recruitment battles between Georgetown and Maryland.

Mercer County Community College has posted their schedule for the upcoming season.

A Harvard basketball verbal commit will play elsewhere citing financial concerns.
