Wednesday News:

Richmond vs. St. Joe's - 7:00 pm ET

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.

Princeton recruit Steven Cook had a double-double in New Trier's overtime win versus Niles North.

The Princeton Packet article on Saturday's game against Cornell has been published.

Down to an eight man rotation, Richmond plays at St. Joe's.

A new Sit Down With Sydney is available.

For those who asked, Princeton's J.V. will play Fork Union Military Academy at 7:00 pm ET on March 1st and at 3:00 pm ET on March 2nd.

That NU loss was heartbreaking. A couple of bounces go the other way and the Wildcats get the win. NU's last offensive possession in regulation was a real missed opportunity. I would have liked to see Shurna get the look there. Also, the Wildcats could have gone for a 2-for-1 in the final minute to ensure two shots for the win.

I was following the game on my phone / Twitter, which is an especially painful way to "watch" basketball.

You are not the only person who was yelling "TWO FOR ONE!" My feeds were full of them.

Where is the buzz about this coming weekend? Harvard could put it away OR Penn/Princeton could make this a much more interesting race. If we lose Friday, we can pretty much focus on next year -- even if Penn comes through on Saturday. If we win ...? I dare not hope for so much fun. Can Harvard possibly drop another to us?

I think the "buzz" will start building today with some posts on the site.

By the way, Bob Ruxin has sold 250+ of the gym's tickets to Princeton alums/friends/fans.

Looking at the highlight clips, I'm happy Coach Henderson has not brought the 1-3-1 zone east with him.

Lots of wide open three point opportunities, if the extra pass is made. Granted, Michigan only shot 37% from the three point line, but that's not a bad number for the team as a whole, and they took 33 three point shots in regulation, so it must have been an important part of their strategy.

Coach H did have them in a 1-3-1 for at least part of the Cornell game. Hat tip to former player Bobby Foley who was at the game and noticed it first.

I don't know Bob Ruxin, but I like him.

Waiting for a story on Jimmy Sherburne's emergence as a regular in the lineup.

I've seen the 1-3-1 this year from Princeton every now and again, and I think it can work as a change of pace, just not as the preferred defense. Didn't get to see most of the Cornell game, and the video feed is so poor I can hardly tell which player is which. I keep thinking about Northeastern's FREE high def feed.

The 1-3-1 without trapping doesn't necessarily leave big holes at the three-point line. It all depends on the zone slides when the ball moves and how much the passing lanes to the weak side can be blocked. I think Carmody uses his trapping version because the Wildcats hae no good interior defenders against drives and post-ups and the 1-3-1 is very good at taking those away.

I enjoy how Princeton uses the 1-3-1 for a change of pace. Keeps opponents on their toes, just like going zone for a few possessions would.

Daniel, some quotes from Coach Henderson on Sherburne coming shortly.

Haha, yes, just saw that in today's entry. Ask and ye shall receive.
