Sunday News:

Northwestern vs. Purdue - 5:00 pm ET - Big Ten Network

In addition to our recap, read about Princeton's win at Cornell on and on

Big Apple Buckets has five thoughts from the Tigers' victory over Columbia.

Princeton recruit Spencer Weisz and Seton Hall Prep came out on top in the Essex County Tournament finals.

Otto Porter was sensational for Georgetown (21-4), scoring a career high 33 points and silencing a crowd of 35,012 as the Hoyas won their final trip to the Carrier Dome as a member of the Big East 57-46 over Syracuse. Hoya Prospectus is happy to crunch numbers that equalled an end to the Orange's 38 game home winning streak.

Albany topped Fairfield (17-12) by eight.

Richmond (16-11) came out on top 72-55 at Fordham.

A shot from Ahmad Starks did not drop at the buzzer as Cal escaped 60-59 at Oregon State (13-15).

Denver (18-8) made it seven straight, 63-57 at Northern Iowa.

Purdue hosts Northwestern in the day's only game involving a Carril Cradle squad.

Around the Ivy League: Harvard (17-7 / 9-1) outscored Yale (11-16 / 5-5) by nine in the final eight minutes of a 72-66 Crimson victory. Check this out: Columbia (11-13 / 3-7) went without a field goal the final 15:17 of the second half and still beat Penn (7-19 / 4-5) by a 58-41 final. The Lions were 2-20 from the field, 19-22 at the line as the Quakers made 16.7% of their own attempts. Brown (10-14 / 4-6) topped Dartmouth (6-18 / 2-8) in Providence, 59-50.

The EnigmaLions strike again! They are Forrest Gump's box of chocolates.

It seems like Yale is the fightin'-est team in the Ivies. Often outgunned but never fazed. Harvard made just enough plays to win, especially some big threes in the second half. I continue to be a skeptic about the Crimson's alleged superiority and hope Princeton will prove me right on Friday. The Tigers of this weekend's level of play seem to me to be clearly the class of the league, and that would have been my preseason perception even with Casey and Curry on board.

And one side note: What in the world is Craig Robinson doing at OSU? It seems like he's so set on not having his program pegged as "Princeton-like" or "Ivy-like" that he has his guys playing hurried, emotional, and un-heady ball. They lost on their Senior Day to Cal--by one point--by getting so worked up emotionally that they gave up a technical free throw for dunking in pre-game warmups! The previous game they played matador defense against Stanford in the second half--I caught some of that game--and looked like they had no plan or idea about how to play. (I really like their mohawk-sporting senior Joe Burton, though, one of those ursine, nimble inside players with a clever, physical, low-altitude offensive game.)
