Wednesday News:

Northwestern vs. Michigan - 6:30 pm ET - Big Ten Network
Seton Hall vs. Georgetown - 7:00 pm ET - ESPN+
Richmond vs. Temple - 7:00 pm ET

Princeton recruit Amir Bell and East Brunswick lost their first contest of the season versus top-ranked St. Anthony. Thus, a 15 game winning streak ends for the Bears while an 83 game winning streak continues for the Friars.

Elsewhere in the state future Tiger Spencer Weisz and Seton Hall Prep won at Bloomfield.

Brian Earl has a brief addition to his National Coach's Diary series.

I already wrote about Mercer's win over Manor last night, but I wanted to add some statistical information once it was available. Mustafa El-Amin had a team-high 14 points and six rebounds while Barry Brockington added 13 plus five boards for the Vikings.

Today Northwestern plays at top-ranked Michigan, Georgetown hosts Seton Hall and Richmond looks for their third straight win over Temple.

Mercer 62 Manor 58.

Postgame audio - Coach Howie Levy:

Mercer County Community College pushed the start of Tuesday night's game against Manor back an hour so head coach Howie Levy could go see his son Lior suit up for Princeton High School versus Notre Dame. Levy then rushed across the county to suffer a different class of agony than the pain created by helplessly watching your child play a sport. Switching from the stands to the sidelines, Levy saw his MCCC squad fall behind early in the first half after taking an immediate 5-0 lead and struggle to catch the visiting Blue Jays.

Knowing that Mercer had raced past Manor on the road 99-80 a month previous, it was difficult to witness the Vikings struggle against a rangy, lateral zone. Center Filip Sekulic was unable to get many touches moving from block to block behind the defense and 5'4" guard Larry Webster's constant raining of three point shots off the bench from in front of the zone routinely landed short.

Princeton 71 TCNJ 33.


Box Score : HD Box Score

Sunday was an island between two distinct epochs, a two week exam period without a game behind it and a run of 13 contests in 40 days that will decide this year’s Ivy League title immediately in front of it.

Princeton did not shoot the ball particularly well in their return to action but had enough size at both ends and got to the line frequently enough to dispatch The College of New Jersey without incident or, perhaps more importantly, injury.

Tiger starters scored the game's first nine points and following TCNJ’s brief halving of a double digit deficit to five versus an early lineup heavy on reserves, returned to the floor to promptly convert back-to-back three point shots and build an 11 point advantage that would only increase for the remaining 28:32 of the afternoon.

Outrebounding an undersized foe 29-17 in the first half, with freshman Hans Brase grabbing 11 of those boards, Princeton extended a 39-17 halftime lead as most of their work was done at the foul line, where the Tigers shot 14-18.

The final buzzer could not come quickly enough after intermission as Denton Koon (12 points in 22 minutes) and Brase (11 points and 15 rebounds in 26 minutes) remained on the floor to anchor the rotation. The lead went from 20 to 30 to 40 as the visiting Lions suffered through a near-10 minute stretch wherein they recorded just a single field goal.

Clay Wilson played a team-high 28 minutes, 2-10 from three point range as his 0-10 marksmanship behind the arc the prior four games finally found the target.

All 13 Princeton players in uniform saw at least six minutes of action. The Tigers were 21-58 (36.2%) as a unit but 22-29 at the line (75.9%) with a ridiculous 60-30 edge on the glass boosted by 21 offensive rebounds.

Emmanuel Matlock and Ryan Keegan each had 10 for TCNJ, which went 0-14 from three on the day.

A full recap plus postgame audio from Coach Mitch Henderson, Denton Koon & Hans Brase can be found after the jump.

There's more on East Brunswick's win at The Hun School here.

It was Georgetown (14-4) over #5 Louisville, 53-51. The Hoyas did just enough down the stretch. Some think John Thompson III's team is now pointed in the right direction.

Mercer (15-6) ended a two game losing streak with a 63-57 win at Essex. Mustafa El-Amin scored 19 and grabbed 12 rebounds for the Vikings.

Shooting 32.1% as a team, Northwestern (12-9) lost 64-49 at Nebraska.

Washington State tripped up Oregon State (11-9) in Corvallis, 71-68.

Fairfield faces St. Peter's in Jersey City while Richmond looks for a third straight at UMass.

Around the Ivy League: Oh, Dartmouth (4-12 / 0-2). The Big Green actually held a 10 point lead with the ball in the final two minutes at Harvard (10-6 / 2-0) before the Crimson made three shots behind the arc (and were fouled on another) as they rallied to force overtime. Once they took their first lead since 2-0 on a Laurent Rivard trey, Tommy Amaker's team never trailed again. Yale (7-12 / 1-1) also required overtime, getting past Brown (7-9 / 1-1) by a 76-64 final. A three from Brian Barbour at the horn did not drop and Columbia (9-7 / 1-1) went down 66-63 at home against Cornell (9-10 / 1-1).
