Tuesday News:

Following up on the Harvard Crimson report from before the weekend, the Daily Princetonian polled several current and former Princeton players (as well as select luminaries from other Ivy programs) about a possible conference tournament.

Perhaps more importantly, Soft Pretzel Logic uncovered a serious error in the initial article. The current proposal would eliminate one non-conference game, not one of the 14 meetings between Ivy foes as was originally stated.

Jonathan Tannenwald also has added a quote from Penn AD Steve Bilsky since this piece was originally published.

Mason Rocca spoke on behalf of Olimpia Milano during the National Day to Combat Thrombosis.

Seems like a long shot given the sheer volume of other schools interested but a forward from Newark has the Tigers on his extensive list of suitors.

A sixth freshman-to-be has committed to play for Sydney Johnson at Fairfield.

I asked Jerry Price if a similar statement from Gary Walters would be possible. While that doesn't sound likely, Price provided one of his own:

I cannot understand why the Ivy League would want to go away from its current format, which guarantees that the most deserving team will represent the league in the NCAA tournament, in favor of a contrived event that devalues the validity of the league championship. For that matter, I can't understand why any traditional one-bid league wouldn’t drop its conference tournament in favor of the Ivy League model. And I say this knowing that Princeton would have had as good a chance as anyone of winning a conference tournament this past season.

Thank you, Jerry Price. I couldn't have put it better.
