The Daily Princetonian, the Daily News and Ivy Hoops Online preview tonight's game.

The final Ivy League Men's Basketball Weekly Release of the season includes Ian Hummer on the Honor Roll.

It was looking decent for Fairfield (19-14) in the championship game of the MAAC Tournament at halftime. The Stags were up four and playing well. The second half however was a brutal defensive struggle where Sydney Johnson's team missed their first 13 attempts from the floor. Three tying shots in the final 1:08 went off the mark and it was Loyola (Md.) advancing to the NCAAs, 48-44. A postseason bid of some fashion is expected.

How about Fairfield against Yale in the CBI or CIT?

Denver (22-9) was knocked out of the Sun Belt semifinals by Western Kentucky, 67-63. Senior guard Brian Stafford had a look for three behind a screen down two with five seconds to go and Royce O'Neale's putback was then blocked. The Hilltoppers sealed the result at the line.

Richmond plays at La Salle tonight to open defense of their conference tournament title. Spiders guard Kendall Anthony is the Atlantic 10's Rookie of the Year.

Bill Carmody talks about Northwestern's NCAA chances.

The Wildcats' John Shurna was named first team All-Big Ten, finishing the season as the conference's leading scorer.

For Georgetown, a brawl in China forged their team's unity. Hoya senior Jason Clark was honored with the Big East's Sportsmanship Award.

The Ivy League is still growing.

Congratulations to Marcus Schroeder, who is headed to the NCAA tournament for the first time as Saint Mary's graduate assistant. The Gaels won the West Coast Conference tournament in overtime, knocking off Gonzaga. It was good to see a smiling Schroeder celebrating on the floor after the final buzzer.

While at Princeton, Pete Hegseth was a polarizing figure.

There are great eBay auctions full of rare memorabilia, and then there is this.

Jesse Agel is out at Brown. A decision was made to not renew his contract.

While a win against Minnesota may not be enough, a loss will surely burst Bill Carmody's bubble. The Wildcats are capable of handling Michigan, having played them tough twice. No better time....A 14 point second half doomed the Stags. Almost 8 minutes without a FG to start the second but they were still down only 4...Very tough loss for Johnson but a very good first season that is not over yet...How about the Tigers in the CBI or CIT? Hegseth remains a polarizing figure....

It is not impossible to imagine a CBI with Princeton, Fairfield, Denver, Richmond and Yale as over a quarter of the bracket's 16 teams.

I'll do some writing on postseason possibilities after the Penn game.

In the meantime, this is a page to tab:

Fairfield/Loyola game was bad basketball. Fairfield may point out that their 1 Guard was in a cast - others will point out they shot 29% losing to a team that shot 33%.

I thought the first half of the MAAC final was well-played and hard-fought.

The second half though? Oy.

Jon, I tuned in at the start of the 2nd half. Oy is being kind. As the game was ending my thought was neither team deserved a spot in the tournament. We still have some horses in the race. Go Northwestern.

It is uncanny that everyone I have heard from (you're now the fourth) only saw the second half of that game. On behalf of basketball, I apologize.

Has a Northwestern player ever led the Big Ten in scoring before?

"He is the first Wildcat to lead the league in scoring since Ray Ragelis in 1951."
