Monday News:

Notre Dame vs. Georgetown - 7:00 pm ET - ESPN

Denver (21-8) secured the three seed in the Sun Belt Tournament with a 64-52 win over North Texas. They'll next play Sunday against either South Alabama or Troy.

The Trentonian has more on Rider's three point home victory over Fairfield (17-13).

Oregon State (15-13) lost to Oregon, 74-73.

The Daily Princetonian, the Harvard Crimson and the Dartmouth sum up the weekend's games.

On Senior Night for Jason Clark and Henry Sims, #9 Georgetown hosts #20 Notre Dame.

Princeton recruit Hans Brase was named First Team All-Mid-Atlantic Prep. Brase averaged 12.3 points as a senior.

In attempting an NIT bracket, Big Apple Buckets sees the Tigers as having the fourth-best RPI of all potential CBI/CIT teams.

Will Venable needs a breakout year.

An NIT bid is probably out of reach, even when we defeat the Quakers, whose standing in the League will nevertheless be higher than ours. But how about a CBI/CIT match-up with Fairfield? I should think it would be a huge draw. It is fitting that Yale's visit to the P's this weekend will have major implications for the post-season hopes of all three teams. Harvard's alleged employment of a loophole in the AI system is a topic that does not get much attention on Jon's site, but it remains a hot topic on several Ivy-oriented sports sites. The P's trip to Cambridge is likely to take the steam out of the movement to change the system. I don't think the Crimson are making a strong case for a favorable seeding, if they do qualify for the tournament. A quick and lop-sided exit would not be surprising.

I had considered Princeton/Fairfield for the CBI but wouldn't be surprised if the Stags were paired with Yale.

Most prognosticators have the Crimson between the 8-10 lines.

Huge 21-win season for Denver in their last Sun Belt run. They finally conquered their away-game problems while continuing to be tough at home, and they picked up a couple of high=profile non-conference wins @Utah State and against St. Mary's. It's hard to believe they won't be in postseason play somewhere, no matter what happens in the Sun Belt tournament. Amazing turnaround for a moribund program. Coach Tierney has revived their lacrosse program, too, so the strategy of importing Princeton coaches seems to be working for them so far.
