Congratulations to Ian on this richly-deserved award.

It has been a pleasure watching him grow and develop his game over the last 4 years. And I hope we will have a chance to continue to watch him play this postseason and beyond.

Finally, let me add an "Amen!" to something he touched on in the postgame conference last night. He and his teammates have every right to be proud of their contribution to the revitalization of the program.

A factoid I mentioned on Twitter earlier today:

Princeton has only had two Ivy POY in the last 15 years & neither won a conference title that season. Ian Hummer in '13 & Brian Earl in '99.

From 59.0% at the line as a freshman to 72.1% as a senior!

Ian Hummer is an all-timer and exactly the kind of guy you want as the face of your program. He accomplished so much, got better every year, and provided leadership through tough times. It was a pleasure to root for him the last four years.

An odd note--it looks like Yale got the treatment Princeton usually receives, with the team doing better than its individuals' recognition level would suggest.

Congratulations to Ian Hummer - his award is certainly well deserved. It looks like the voters rewarded volume rather than efficiency this year. Cartwright and McGonagil are both great players, but they sure did put up a lot of shots on their way to gaudy ppg statistics. I would have liked to see Koon make 2nd team and Barrett get some kind of recognition. Isn't it a little odd that the player who led the NATION in 3pt fg% didn't at least get honorable mention all-Ivy?

Jon Solomon said,

March 13, 2013 @ 8:26 pm

I don't think there was room to honor Bray, Koon and Barrett in addition to Hummer this year.

Please note that of the 16 players who earned All-Ivy, none are designated as a center.

Jon Solomon said,

March 13, 2013 @ 8:27 pm

Also, while he had slipped to second last week Barrett is in fact tops in DI from outside the arc yet again!

Can you name the last Tiger to lead the nation in 3PT%?

Steven Postrel said,

March 13, 2013 @ 9:08 pm

Maybe that out-of-system stagger screen play that the Tigers ran for Wilson a few times ought to be rolled out for Barrett once in a while.

Can you name the last Tiger to lead the nation in 3PT%?

Would that be Matt Lapin aka Slapper? Who can forget his fist pumps in the game against Georgetown?

Jon Solomon said,

I believe that to be correct!

Maybe I'm missing something, but how does Cartwright make 2nd team All-Ivy? In my opinion every team in the league had a better guard then him, including Penn.

Congrats to Ian indeed. It's been a pleasure watching him play. I wonder if he knows just how good of a player his dad was?

No disrespect to Ed Hummer, but Uncle John was even better. After watching Hicks shred our defense twice I would take him over Cartwright any time. Penn, with Hicks, Nelson-Henry, a healthy Dougherty and Cartwright, should contend next year. (Unless Allen turns out to be as bad as many Penn fans think.) How in the world was the POY vote not unanimous?

Kevin Whitaker said,

Ken Pomeroy tweeted out his algorithm's all-Ivy team last night: Hummer (PoY), Saunders, Chambers, Bray, Barbour.

Jon Solomon said,

Cartwright's 13.5 points per game was fifth in the league. Can see how that was rewarded.

He only scored eight total points against the Tigers this season though!

Can Dougherty and Nelson-Henry play on the floor at the same time for the Quakers?

Not mentioned in my recap: Jerome Allen spent the initial portion of Tuesday's press conference eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich...

Steve Postrel's suggestion has a lot of merit. I think the 2013-14 Tigers will have a far more agile front court. BC is back-to-the basket center who went to the top of the key to hand the ball off. You didn't need to worry about him scoring from there. Brase has shown the ability to shoot, if not the proclivity. I suspect he will be encouraged to put it up more frequently, stretching defenses and opening up things inside. We all know what Barrett can do from behind the arc. I see lots of possibilities.

Jon Solomon said,

March 14, 2013 @ 12:06 pm

Intriguing (to me at least):

There will be 10 players on Princeton's roster next season who combined to play one total minute this year - Six new recruits, Jimmy Sherburne, Ben Hazel, Daniel Edwards and Edo Lawrence.

Patrick Ying said,

March 14, 2013 @ 11:16 pm

Brase, Barrett and Koon up front, with Bray and Clement, Wilson, Sherburne and Hazel, competing for guard minutes plus whatever the freshmen give you.
Only Pete Miller is a "big," and now suddenly the Tigers have 10 guards and seem to need post defense and rebounding. The returning Princeton bigs are tall but not so big.

Daniel Maass said,

March 15, 2013 @ 9:37 am

I think the best solution would be to force-feed Barrett steaks, whey protein and creatine powder in the off-season, lock him in a gym and refuse to let him out until he's at least 6-10 235 lbs with just as smooth a stroke on the 3 pointer as ever. Four of our starters should be, without question, him, Koon, Bray and Brase. As for the fifth, I certainly think it should be a guard (Koon did an admirable job filling in last year, but let's be honest, he's a forward). My plan would be to take Clement, Sherburne, Hazel, Wilson, Weisz, Cook, Caruso, Rayner and Moore and lock them in a room together. Only one man comes out. We'll see who wants it the most.

Jon Solomon said,

March 15, 2013 @ 9:46 am

He was better than expected with the guard parts of being a guard (bringing the ball up in particular) but Koon will certainly be more comfortable at forward.

I'd have no issue with Sherburne starting the season as the second guard if he's able to perform at the same level he did at the end of his junior year.


George Clark said,

March 15, 2013 @ 12:16 pm

Daniel M: Carril used to recommend beer and bananas. The way Sherburne played at the end of last season convinced me he would start alongside Bray this year. The only question with him is his shoulder. If healthy he'll be more than adequate. I have the same feeling this year about Clement. He started this year but was not ready. When he got the chance to contribute later he a big way. He's figured out what he needs to do. If a freshman moves ahead of one of these guys he'll have to be pretty good, and wouldn't that be great!? If there's a Darrow-type somewhere on the roster we ought to be able to hold our own most nights. But let's face it, we missed Davis this year and we're going to miss Hummer next.

Just realized that I left out Washington in my hypothetical Princeton guard royal rumble - no disrespect intended.
