Thank you for another great year of Princetonbasketball. You bring a passion and an enjoyable bias for the Tigers but still enough objectivity to satisfy the purists. I feel Princeton won as a team and the parts were only as good as the collective group of players, ergo, no superstars or first or second team all ivy, but a very satisfying year. My only question would be, is the rookie of the year a mutually exclusive award that eliminates that player from contention for one of the all ivy categories? I doubt that, and if so, why was Chris W. not all ivy and Doug D. made honorable mention? I understand to the winner goes the spoils, but on a team of excellent players it seems that this freshman from Cornell could not have had anywhere near the impact that Doug did for the Tigers. Great season for Princeton and good luck going forward.

Can I quote you on that?

Thanks for the kind words.

I don't know how ROY voting works beyond that it is decided by the coaches, but it was surprising that Davis made Honorable Mention All-Ivy but Wroblewski did not!
