When he finally figures out how to consistently can his free throws, he will be even more dangerous. Right now that is the only weakness in his game.

After starting the season 9-21 on free throws, he's 13-19 (68.4%) at the line.

Not great, but much improved.

It appears that Maryland has lost one of its two high profile "big man" recruits (Baru to Univ of Charleston). Do you think that this will adversely affect Princeton's chances of attracting Desmond Hubert, Maryland's other major target? I was hoping that I would see Hubert in attendance at the St Joseph game yesterday. With the loss of Kareem Maadox after this season, I see no comparable replacement for his skills without someone like Hubert. Conversely, with Hubert Princeton would have a deep and powerful squad without any noticeable vulnerabilities.

Baru's commitment has people on various Maryland sites/blogs/etc saying that now they *have* to have Desmond Hubert commit to the Terps.

Not sure how this changes anything from Princeton's perspective.

Bold prediction: Ian Hummer has at least a couple more Ivy POTW awards coming this year.

I saw the Maryland postings about Hubert too. I was thinking that it sure would have been great if he were in the building last night to see the Tigers score 30 points in 10 minutes, 44 in 17... (In case any of the "he doesn't want to go to Princeton because their offense is boring" talk is at all accurate)

My body involuntarily levitated up out of my seat when Kareem went up for what looked like a dunk but which he wisely changed to a skying layup in the 2nd half. Anyone get a photo or video of that?

Hubert was at last season's Harvard/Princeton game and this season's Rutgers/Princeton game. He's certainly seen the "new look" Tigers in action in front of enthusiastic crowds.

Will check with Stephen about a picture of Maddox's layup (I think it is also on the front of the Trenton Times).

The dunk attempt might have been blocked so he just. kept. elevating.

Ivy League now 13th highest conference RPI out of 31


I can't remember the league being in the top 20.

Ivies were 18th at the end of 2006-07:

16th in 2004-05:

Guess I didn't pay any attention to RPI in those years when it meant nothing to Tigers' post season prospects. I've always found the index pretty screwy anyway.
