Want to watch tonight's game on-line? We've been in contact with the Missouri Valley Conference and they were kind enough to set up a single game pay-per-view option for tonight's broadcast. You won't have to sign up for the full Evansville season pass to see all the action.

The Daily Princetonian and the Evansville Courier & Press preview the Tigers/Purple Aces tilt.

Richmond, Denver and Georgetown are all in action tonight.

The Washington Post has a feature on senior Hoya guard Jonathan Wallace and Washingtonian has quotes from head coach John Thompson III on a variety of subjects.

Andy Katz from profiles Northwestern leading scorer Kevin Coble and his mother's battle with breast cancer.

I was not able to listen to the game tonight but saw the score. This is certainly a regression from Princeton's earlier games. Does anyone know what happened? Why is it so difficult for the Tigers to score points? Finley has not contributed much the last two games. It seems that if struggles the Tigers have difficulty getting good looks from outside. Anyone else have any thoughts?

The most shocking statistic: 3 assists on 13 field goals. (And fwiw, none of the 3 assists were registered by guards.)

I listened to the game but did not see it. What did Evansville do that so profoundly interfered with running our stuff? And what can our players and coaches learn from this game?

1. Get the player responsible for 29.6% of Princeton's offensive possessions used (that's 88th best in the country) on the bench with two early personal fouls. The Tigers couldn't go inside/out with either Buczak or Okafor on the floor.

2. Don't allow the leading Princeton three point shooter to get more than one clean look all night.

3. Take away dribble penetration so the Tigers only have two kinds of offensive looks to choose from (three point shots or post play) and then focus on defending those options.
