Stanford vs. Oregon State - 11:00 pm ET - ESPNU

33 points from D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera was the highest scoring output by a Hoya freshman under John Thompson III as Georgetown (20-4) won their eighth straight 90-66 over DePaul. DSR shot 10-12 from the field, 5-6 behind the arc and 8-10 at the line.

Scoring remained an issue for Northwestern (13-14), who went down 69-41 against #19 Wisconsin.

Princeton recruit Amir Bell and East Brunswick advanced to the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament final.

Tomorrow night Columbia must account for the versatility of Ian Hummer.

Sydney Johnson wanted Malcolm Gilbert to play for him at Princeton and will get that chance at Fairfield now that Gilbert has transferred in from Pitt.

For the first time since their four overtime affair, Oregon State plays Stanford.

Looking for something to do on Monday night? Two seed Mercer will host Burlington at 6:00 pm ET in the first round of the Region XIX playoffs.

Last year at this time the "Carmody Watch" was picking up steam. He avoided the axe primarily because the prospects were so bright for this year's team. The one thing he didn't need was a rash of injuries so far beyond the ordinary that Northwestern never really had a chance to compete. I hope his employers understand that. From what I have seen on TV his kids are trying hard.

Carmody should get one more year. I think he has lost four of his top six players this year to injuries and academics. Drew Crawford is one of the best players in the Big Ten and will be 100% next year. They miss Michael Thompson and John Shurna. Even if Carmody gets let go, he will be hired quickly by another school. When was the last time that a basketball coach had winning records at Northwestern?

I'd like to know what sucker would take the job if they canned Carmody. Unless NU pulled the Harvard trick of firing the incumbent then institutionally making things a lot easier for a new big-time coach.Under the existing self-imposed limitations, even those desperate for a job would have to think twice.

If Carmody were to be fired, his replacement would inherit a team with Drew Crawford and a ESPNU Top 100 recruit in Jaren Sina. Not a bad welcoming gift.

In the words of P.T. Barnum," There's a sucker born every minute..." A Big 10 job, any job, is considered a plum in the coaching fraternity. The measure of success at NU is different than at, say, Michigan, but the team is expected to be competitive and to spring the occasional upset. With Shurna the team was trending up and came close to the NCAA tourney. This year has been a setback, no question, and it has been caused by injuries. It seems likely he'll be on the hot seat for the rest of his tenure.
How much success must Harvard achieve before we look at giving our team some institutional help? I wonder what Sydney Johnson thinks?
