Syracuse's officials-assisted escape yesterday afternoon versus 16 seed UNC-Ashville caused one writer to dig up his original piece on Princeton's 1989 close call versus Georgetown.

On a related note, Sports Illustrated has posted a great photo of Kit Mueller's final field goal attempt. Alex Wolff, is that you in the background on press row?

There's good news and bad news about Monday's CBI game. The bad news is that it will not be televised and as of yesterday afternoon Pittsburgh had no intention to offer video streaming on-line. The good news is that it is a breezy 336 miles from one campus to the other if you want to see the contest in person!

I did not realize it had been 16 years since the defending national champion lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. I have a vague recollection of that prior outcome...

John Thompson III's Georgetown team looks to avoid a third straight early exit from the NCAA Tournament, meeting Belmont this afternoon in Columbus, Ohio.

Here's a terrific profile on the voice of the Hoyas, Rich Chvotkin.

Top recruit Nerlens Noel writes about his official visit to the Hilltop.

Don't overlook that Northwestern is also playing at Washington in the NIT's second round.

The Princeton Packet reviews the Tigers' trip to Evansville with Mack Darrow and the Daily Princetonian previews the orange and black's next outing at Pitt with Ian Hummer.

A familiar foe awaits Fairfield in the next round of the CIT.

Around the Ivy League: Harvard (26-5) saw their season end with a 79-70 loss to Vanderbilt. Even at 20 with 4:28 left in the first half, a needless second foul by Kyle Casey sent him to the bench and the Commodores went to intermission on a 13-3 run. While the Crimson cut an 18 point deficit down to seven late, they were unable to get closer.

You mean it's a breezy 336 miles from door to door if YOU want to see the contest in person! If I want to see the contest in person is a cumbersome 1,430 miles. :-) Thank you for representing those of us who wish we could be there but cannot. Guess I'll be listening on Pittsburgh's KDKA.

I mapped it from Princeton to Pitt (and have edited my original post above). I'm a good seven miles closer!

Will keep everyone updated on broadcast options and let you know if anything changes.

Understand Daniel Edwards is recovering nicely from his concussion incurred at practice on the Thursday before the Yale/Brown weekend. Hopefully, he will be able to fully practice and travel to Pitt.

What is the prognosis for Jimmy Sherburne, not just for the remainder of this season, but more importantly, for next year?

I got your comment in my inbox walking into Jadwin, so I asked Coach Henderson about Sherburne's availability during today's press conference! Audio is available in a more recent post.

Also, 103.3 fm WPRB *will* be broadcasting the Pitt game on Monday, regardless of how the women do in the NCAA Tournament. Who will be calling the action is TBD.

Jon, important question regarding the site. In the entirely conceivable event that Princeton faces Penn in the semifinals or finals, and assuming you attend the game(s), do you count that those games toward your Ivy streak?

Stuart, I would (also counted the Ivy playoff last year).
