Monday, March 22nd
Princeton vs. IUPUI - 7:00 pm ET
CBI Tournament

How was your Saturday? Princeton recruit T.J. Bray was named 2010 Mr. Basketball by the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association yesterday. Bray also took home unanimous Division 2 First Team All-State honors.

Then Bray went out and scored 20 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, picked six steals and slung five assists as Catholic Memorial won the WIAA Division 2 state title with a 60-48 win over Maple Northwestern in Madison.

I had a chance to watch part of the third quarter and all of the fourth quarter. Bray has an poised, adult game and was never rattled with the ball in his hands. He's not particularly fast but his handle and his decision making were ace. A cross-court pass by Bray to set up a teammate for a three point shot at the buzzer to end quarter number three was marvelous.

Here's the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report on the game.

As of right now, Princeton does not have a plan to broadcast Monday night's CBI game at IUPUI. The best chance to following the action is to stream video of the game on With the Jaguars' gym holding just over 1,200 people, I'd recommend anyone making the trip buy tickets in advance.

Princeton coach Sydney Johnson was a guest on "The Passing Game" with former Fork Union head man Fletcher Arritt. An excellent listen.

Oregon State is already looking to the future.

I love the timing of this announcement. The day before the Ivy champ blows away the Badgers, Princeton recruit announced as Wisconsin's Mr. Basketball. Guess this would be insult first, then injury.

Hi Jon,

Now that this Cornell team will go down in the books like the '69 Princeton team and the '79 Penn team, what are your thoughts on how this affects Cornell, the League, and Princeton in the future. Some ascribe to the "rising tides carry all ships" philosophy, while others think this will make recruiting much harder for the rest of the Ivies.

How much do you think a deep CBI run can help off-set any negative effects of Cornell's success on Princeton?

You can also add Bray receiving his trophy after Catholic Memorial won the state title on the Wisconsin Badgers' home court!


Great questions. Here's one back for you: Do you think Cornell's success will alter Princeton's perspective on accepting transfers?

While I don't think a deep CBI run can help Princeton recruiting to an enormous degree, I do think that the Tigers' overall success this season will make it easier for the current staff to recruit.

Players like Douglas Davis and Patrick Saunders had to be convinced to take a leap on the future in a way that, say, Ian Hummer or Will Barrett didn't.

Cornell's going to get a great deal of well-deserved publicity this week, but it also increases the chance of their head coach taking any big time basketball job he wants after their run is over.
