A crazy long line for the halftime shootout. Who knew $5 Backcourt Bistro coupons were that sought-after!

Mack's beard did not affect the streamlined efficiency of his box score line.

Is Ben Hazel back on team?

Sorry to see that neither Brian Fabrizius nor Edo Lawrence saw any action in this blowout. Does this mean that neither has a future on the team? I have been impressed by what little I have seen of Fabrizius in warm-ups. In two years we may have lost all our other "big" men (6'10"+) to graduation (oh, I forgot Garbade!). As things stand now, who do you see up front?

It is my understanding Hazel is part of the team but won't be playing again until 2013-14.

Fabirizus and Lawrence are both injured, otherwise both would most certainly have been on the floor.

Re: John P's question---Fabrizius and Lawrence strike me as "projects" at this point, neither has the strength, speed and agility to contribute much at the D1 level, although physical maturity can change that assessment in three years. Garbade is a better bet to help, certainly at the level Connolly did in his underclass seasons. Fun to think about a line-up for next about a backcourt of Bray, Sherburne with Wilson off the bench (Hazel is a factor here, as well) and a frontcourt of Barrett, Brase and Koon? Throw in some quality minutes from Garbade and the rookie Pete Miller, and we have a great start. If you follow Jon's reporting you know there are other quality recruits on the way. There better be since another Hummer is not likely, at least in my lifetime.

It is crazy that the 2013-14 Tigers will have eight players on the roster who weren't on the 2012-13 one, plus one additional returnee who played one overall minute and another who did not play a minute this year.

Yesterday's blowout also had me thinking about future years' lineups. I agree that Garbade will be an important part of the Tigers' frontcourt next season. And I agree with Jon that it's crazy how many new players will be on next year's roster, including two returnees. There has been an unprecedented number of on-again/off-again additions to/subtractions from the Tigers' roster over the past few years. Harvard will be joining that trend, too.

Contrary to the last picture above, a certain baby had a great first experience at Jadwin. That baby's older brother, however, was lamenting the lack of a bouncy castle. And still no Tiger mascot!

In addition to several solid returnees plus Sherburne and Hazel, it appears to me that there are at least three incoming freshmen who will get meaningful court time by the end of next season. No Hummers, but several high skill players who are used to top level competition. We should be very deep for the next few years, even with key losses of big men Hummer, Connelly, Darrow after this season and Bray, Sherburne and Barrett after next season. The teams that follow will be completely the products of the current.coaching staff.

Regarding the Tiger mascot: There is a wonderful group of students (going under the name Tiger Universe and its subsidiary, Jadwin Jungle) who are working very hard to improve student attendance and enthusiasm for Princeton athletics. Unfortunately, they get very little support from the the athletics department, which has proven extremely difficult to work with on many fronts, including use of the Tiger costume. So the presence of the mascot remains at the mercy of the athletics department, which means you can expect to see it only sporadically and almost certainly not at games that coincide with breaks, such as the TCNJ game, which occurred during intersession.
