Shooting 12-19 from three point range and 64.6% from the floor, Northwestern (5-0) blew out Georgia Tech, 91-71.

Chris Wright hit a three point shot at the buzzer to force overtime as Georgetown (7-0) topped number nine Missouri. Jason Clark made three straight treys to open up a seven point lead for the Hoyas in the extra frame.

Mercer (3-4) fell 80-71 at Raritan. Gary Carthan had 10 points and 10 rebounds in defeat.

Princeton recruit Clay Wilson scored 47 points in his first game of the season. Wow.

The Princeton Packet writes about the Tigers win over Siena.

At the Times Union Tribune they're still discussing Mitch Buonaguro's decision not to foul in the final seconds of regulation on Sunday.

Chris Young says he is "not close to a deal with anyone at the present time."

A great matchup tonight when Richmond travels to ODU.

It's great to see the Princeton Offense evolving with the current times. I always thought it was a myth that this style of play was only for low scoring games running down the shot clock on each possesion. With talent the offense can create space for players to create their own shots when needed. It was great to watch NW and Georgetown both use the offense in an up tempo style last night. Pete Carril states in his tapes that he took elements from the fast breaking Celtic teams and New York Knick teams to develop the offense. He must be very proud of his disciples evolving the offense in its current form.

As much as I like to see Princeton score 80 plus points in a game, I wish they would score more backdoor baskets. I don't remember seeing very many this year, but I have not seen or listened to all the games. I do watch Georgetown and Northwestern quite a bit (Big Ten Network) and it appears that Carmody and Thompson space the floor better than Princeton does and score many more backdoor baskets. Some will say that it's because our competion knows what to expect and Princeton has gone away from it for obvious reasons. I find that explanation hard to believe when I see how often Northwestern and Georgetown score using more traditional Princeton sets. Surely, their opponents know what to expect as well. My fear is that Princeton will turn into just another college basketball team. Without the Princeton offense and tenacious match-up zone defense, Princeton may win the Ivy League but will never compete against top tier competition. When we play top D-I teams, we need to slow the game down and force the other team to play our game. I don't think that Sidney believes this.

David, there were a couple traditional backdoor baskets versus Lafayette (and a few more opportunities I'm seeing now on tape that were available but not thrown).

With interior players like Hummer and Maddox who can post or slash plus the ability to go inside/outside with Davis and Mavraides on the arc, it seems silly not to play to a current team's strengths over a program's history.

I'm not saying we should not use Hummer and Maddox inside. Carril and Carmody had plenty of centers like Kit Meuller and Chris Young who played in the post and took hook shots and played on the top of the key and made backdoor passes. I love the way Northwestern uses its center. I just think that if Princeton goes traditional it loses its brand, its national appeal and its ability to compete against top competition.
