Oh! If you're interested in Seniors on a Stick for any of the five Tigers honored yesterday, please let me know. Demand exceeded supply and I'd be happy to run off a few more on request.

Around the Ivy League: Penn (8-20 / 5-6) led the entire way versus Harvard (17-9 / 9-3) but a landscape-altering result was not secure until Christian Webster's three point shot came up short of the rim at the horn with the Crimson trailing by three. Yale (12-17 / 6-6) won 79-70 at beguiling Cornell (13-16 / 5-7). A Tucker Halpern three point shot at the buzzer gave Brown (12-14 / 6-6) the 61-58 decision against Columbia (11-14 / 3-8).

Let's get way, irresponsibly ahead of ourselves here. Anyone want to speculate on the chance of a Georgetown-Princeton 2-15 matchup?

Stuart: If we get in we will be either 16-3 in our last 19 or 16-4 in 20. I don't see any other way in. If that happens are we a 15 seed? I think we make it up to 14. Especially since our loss on the road at Akron was pretty good and our wins over Kent State and Bucknell look better and better. I also think Gtown may grab a #1, esp. if they win the Big East tourney. Let's hope we are in brackets that don't meet until the final!

It's going to boil down to how many automatic qualifiers with worse records get in behind us. Lunardi had Harvard as a #14 before they lost twice this weekend. Before the weekend, Princeton had two more losses than Harvard, including a resume-bruising loss to Fordham. Harvard had a better RPI than Princeton but the Tigers were ahead of Harvard using Pomeroy, BPI etc.

Bottom line is that the 14/15 decsion could go either way.

Georgetown certaily could be a #1, in which case there is no way we'd drop to a 16. And it's also true that if the Tigers are a #15 and Hoyas are #2, odds are we're a strong 15 and Georgetown is a strong 2. If so, and if the S-curve is followed closely, that would reduce the chance of a Carril Cup showdown.

But there are too many variables over the next two weeks to *eliminate* this possibility--yet.

I am happy to open a "bracketology" thread in The Forum (or you're welcome to start your own) but I'll be avoiding posting any links of that nature until the Ivy's bid is decided...

I found the following. You may or may not needto be an ESPN insider to get at this:

Lunardi has Georgetown at #4 on the S-curve (the last #1 seed). He has Princeton at #60 on the S-curve. Because of the First Four play-in, S-curve positions 59-62 are the #15 seeds. Thus he has Princeton as the 2nd best #15.

Also of note: He has Bucknell at #53, mapping to a 13 seed--the best of the teams behind the last of the Last Four In, but still behind them. Northeastern is #63, making them a #16 that does not have to play in.

Stuart: Thanks for the link. If the Fordham game is an issue to the committee so be it. Jon's suggestion that we ought not get too far over our skis is a good one. I was prepared to put up a plea to contact the AD's office in support of getting a home game in the CBI. It will take some $$$ to do it but is something Ian Hummer deserves. I don't remember too many familiar faces at Pittsburgh to see Doug Davis reach #2 in his final appearance for the Tigers. Penn found the money; why can't we? So glad such talk will be irrelevant this season.

I'm more worried about doing a better job against Yale in New Haven than in Princeton. The Tigers had better bring their "new nasty" attitude on D and the boards and also work on their zone offense, or it's going to be an unhappy weekend.

Brown worries me less on paper but they're likely to be really fired up and Princeton has had problems up there over the years.

It SHOULD be two solid wins for Princeton, but after what happened to Harvard on Saturday, road games should not be taken lightly. Yale can drag you into the mud with them and win ugly while Brown has a puncher's chance from three if you give them looks. I[m hoping for Princeton-on-the-warpath as on the NY trip, because that will almost certainly get the team home with the results they want.

Excellent! Let me see how many others request SOAS the next few days and then I'll print a second run.
