Sunday News:

Indiana vs. Northwestern - 1:00 pm ET - Big Ten Network

Princeton recruit Spencer Weisz had 15 points and 12 assists for Seton Hall Prep at the Coaches vs. Cancer Challenge.

Darien Brothers scored a career high 39 as Richmond (12-7) recorded the victory of the day among Carril Cradle teams, 81-61 over previously 15-2 Charlotte.

Denver (11-7) continues to find their lone season in the WAC to their liking. The Pioneers won their seventh straight, 68-57 over Utah State.

Georgetown (12-4) fell short at South Florida, 61-58.

USC topped Oregon State (10-8) by one. The Beavers had the ball in the lane as time expired but could not get off a legitimate look at the basket.

Mercer (14-5) lost 66-53 to Harcum.

Before the football gets underway, Northwestern hosts #2 Indiana. Listen to an excerpt of Bill Carmody on Sirius XM College Sports Nation.

Any thoughts on the steps the NCAA is taking to simplify their rulebook?

Around the Ivy League: Harvard (9-6 / 1-0) was able to overcome a 20 point deficit at Memphis but once the Crimson took the lead the Tigers closed on a 16-4 run across the final 6:40. Columbia (9-6 / 1-0) used a 13-0 second half run to create enough space between themselves and Cornell (8-10 / 0-1) in Ithaca. Penn (3-14 / 0-1) returned to their losing ways, falling 79-59 to St. Joe's at the Palestra. In a bit of a surprise, Brown (7-8 / 1-0) built as large as a 49-29 second half lead in their conference opening victory over Yale (6-12 / 0-1).

Brown and Columbia are the two enigmatic teams this year, capable of going off in either sense of the phrase at any time. I watched the C-C game; Columbia is much the better basketball team and could have won by more. Cornell has very few guys with developed scoring moves and their half-court offense didn't regularly generate good shots against either man or zone D. It was close for a while because Cornell hit a bunch of threes and Columbia didn't do a great job on the boards at first and Cisco missed a lot. Barbour put on some really nifty one-on-one moves down the stretch--reverse pivot and step-through moves that occurred at medium speed and looked a tad circus-y but well-practiced. Mullins was good in the first half.

Princeton should beat either team, home or away, if they play as in their last four games. I would expect the Lions to show a lot of zone, which they also did against Cornell. Otherwise, their inside guys will get abused and whomever Barbour guards on the Tigers will be able to shoot right over him.

Big wins for Richmond and Denver. The Denver win would be more impressive if Utah State hadn't been missing two of its top three scorers. Still, a 15-2 advantage in points off turnovers while shooting above 50% from both two and three is pretty much the JS formula.
