Tuesday night's game with Penn has been picked up by ESPN3.

Still alive! By the skin of their teeth (as if they know any other way now) Northwestern (18-12) pulled off a 70-66 win at Iowa. The Hawkeyes missed an open three pointer for the lead with six seconds to go.

At the same time Fairfield (18-13) was fending off Rider, 65-63. The Stags get top seed Iona in the MAAC semis this afternoon.

Georgetown (22-7) fell 83-69 at Marquette. With the loss the Hoyas slip to the five seed in next week's Big East Tournament. Hoya Prospectus crunches the numbers.

It was Oregon State (17-13) over Colorado, 83-69.

Denver faces South Alabama in the Sun Belt Tournament.

Around the Ivy League: Harvard (26-4 / 12-2) earned at least a share of the conference crown with a 67-63 win at Cornell (12-16 / 7-7). Penn (19-11 / 11-2) stayed a half game back by rolling Yale (19-9 / 9-5) at The Palestra, 67-48. After so many close conference losses, Columbia (15-15 / 4-10) came out on top by six over Dartmouth (5-25 / 1-13) to end the season.

Thanks, Larry. I was just adding that last one in when you commented. Blame the 3.5 year old on my lap for it not going up sooner!

I have mixed feelings about Sydney Johnson's record at Fairfield. Perhaps it was all hype, but I sense that expectations have exceeded success for the Stags this season. Is it possible that Sydney may have a little "buyer's remorse" for leaving our program for one that, by most evaluations, is no improvement? Sure, I assume he is making more $. But, if he had stuck around a little longer, he might have had the chance to make a much better leap.

Perhaps this conclusion is premature. Go luck in the MAAC playoffs, Sydney. I hope that it all works out. As for Princeton, I am delighted with MH's transition. I think that good times are ahead for Princeton Basketball!

See my note after the Brown recap and/or Henderson's comments after the away Harvard game.
