Saturday News:

I am sorry to report the passing of Al Dufty '72.

Dufty was a three time letter winner at Princeton, captain of the 1971-72 team and recipient of the B. F. Bunn award following his final campaign.

He averaged 10.8 points as a senior on a 20-7 Tiger squad.

A memorial service will be held on Friday in Idaho, where he was associate dean of the Graduate College at Boise State.

My condolences to his family, friends and former teammates.

Here is a report on the year-ending Georgetown basketball banquet.

You can vote for Will Venable to make the 2012 All-Star Game if you so choose.

I am somewhat surprised that there have been few comments on PBN regarding the proposal floated again this year for a post-season Ivy tournament. While initially attributed to Ms. Harris recent reports suggest the coaches are responsible. The proliferation of such tournaments, paticularly among the conferences which receive multiple bids to the NCAA tournament, may be explained very simply: $$$$. The premises upon which the Ivy League is grounded are entirely inconsistent with the exploitation of the "student-athletes" which has been the inevitable result of the big-business model which drives most D1 programs. For the coaches to aspire to compete on the highest level is to be expected of competitive people. The best way for them to achieve their personal goals is the traditional way: take another job. See: Van Breda Kolff, Butch; Daly, Chuck; the little guy from Cornell; Thompson lll, John; Johnson, Sydney; etc. etc. A bid to the NCAA tournament is a fitting reward for the Ivy champion but must never become the rationale for Princeton to sponsor a basketball team in intercollegiate athletics.

A wonderful person who worked his way to the captaincy in '72, Al was a personal favorite of mine, and a big reason Princeton was such a great stage for Brian Taylor, along with such scrappers as Ted Manakas and Reggie Bird. Will really miss him at his 40th reunion this year.
