In addition to our recap, read about Princeton's win over Harvard on, in the Star Ledger, in the Trentonian, in the Trenton Times, in the Boston Globe, in the Crimson, on CBS Sports, on Ivy Hoops Online and on

The Trentonian also has a piece on Ian Hummer passing Doug Davis for second all-time in scoring at Princeton.

There's a story about future Tiger Steven Cook in Wilmette Life. Cook's New Trier squad were victorious in Illinois' Class 4A regional final.

Cook also received All-Area honorable mention honors.

Princeton recruit Amir Bell and East Brunswick advanced to the Central Jersey, Group 4 tournament finals, where they will host Trenton.

Khyan Rayner and Jesuit made it out of the OSAA Class 6A state playoff's second round unscathed.

Another double-double for Kareem Maddox at Newcastle.

In the lowest-scoring game in MAAC history, Manhattan topped Fairfield (17-13) by a 34-31 final.

Richmond plays at Dayton, Mercer's in the Region XIX finals (which you can stream live video of here for free), Denver hosts New Mexico State and Georgetown welcomes Rutgers late.

Below, Rich Chvotkin has the call for the conclusion of the Hoyas' double OT win at UConn.

Around the Ivy League: Brown (11-14 / 5-6) made 13 three pointers in a 84-65 win at Shonn Miller-less Cornell (13-15 / 5-6). Maodo Lo had a career high 20 as Columbia (12-13 / 4-7) stopped Yale (11-17 / 5-6) by 13. Dartmouth (7-18 / 3-8) heads to Jadwin Gym on the heels of just their sixth win at The Palestra, 69-64 over Penn (7-20 / 4-6).

One way to avoid complacency after the big win: Princeton still has to play 30% of its regular season.

Posted this in another comment thread, but the Ivy office told me this morning that if a one game playoff was necessary it would take place at The Palestra.

I'm convinced there's not going to be a playoff, one way or another. Don't think Princeton and Harvard will combine to go 7-0.

I don't know Jon, I see a very good chance of the chalk winning out and a playoff in Philly. Both Harvard and Princeton have improved their play over the last couple of weeks and their rivals haven't. Obviously tonight's game could be a trap situation for either team, but I don't think Dartmouth can beat the Tigers unless the latter collapses on both ends of the floor while Harvard just has too much for a pretty disorganized and depleted Penn team.

Next weekend could get dicey for Princeton, with two opponents certainly capable of having good enough nights at home to pull an upset. But I think Hummer & Co. are very focused now and will have something for Yale especially. While the EnigmaLions of Columbia could probably upset the Miami Heat (while losing to a girl's middle school team), making Harvard not completely safe, with Harvard'snew-found defensive commitment, playing at home, a sweep of the Cs seems likely. That leaves the rivalry game at the Palestra, and no Tiger fan could ever be sanguine about that, but all Princeton has to do is avoid turnovers and play average basketball for them to have a huge advantage given the matchups.

I don't know what Mr.James's simulations say, but it feels like a better than 50% chance of a playoff. The two contenders have pulled away from the pack.

If Shonn Miller plays, Cornell matches up nicely with Harvard.

However the Big Red seem to be a m.e.s.s. currently.

Now that they have zippo to play for Columbia has been performing nicely. What a weird team.

Princeton proves the point with mediocre play (statistically) but a solid win. But Penn is trying to make a liar out of me with a "Return of the Killer Ps" sequel. Hicks and Nelson-Henry are going nuts, but Penn is still committing tons of dumb fouls and turnovers and now Harvard is getting hot from the arc.

Jon Solomon the seer! Harvard goes down immediately to Penn! Now the Tigers "only" need to win three in a row to clinch.
