Kareem Maddox got robbed. It just shows that defense is overlooked and undervalued. Princeton won most of its games because it defended better than other teams. Notwithstanding Jeff Foote, Kareem Maddox is the best defender in the league. Every game he guards the other teams' best player and always holds him well under his scoring average. That should at least get you an honorable mention selection.

Here are some interesting numbers to back up what you're saying:

Through Tuesday, Princeton is the 37th ranked adjusted defense in the country, best in the Ivy League. The second best defense was played by Harvard (136) and Cornell (137).

Princeton is the 234th ranked adjusted offense in the country, fourth best in the Ivy - behind Cornell, Harvard and Brown.

Love those black sox that a few Quakers wear. All they need are the wingtips to go with them. Is that what Wharton bball undergrads wear?

Do the coaches decide on all ivy? Seems like it's voting patterns learned from figure skating. I'd take both Lin and Rosen off the list and promote Maddox and Eggleston. Sydney is coach of the year for sure

It is my understanding that All-Ivy is voted on by the coaches and the pre-season poll is voted on by the media.

While I could see Maddox having earned honorable mention or second team status, there's no way he was going to bump a senior like Lin off the first team.
