I have the cure for Princeton basketball depression. I have been transferring VHS tapes to DVD, and have watched the 1997 team beat Penn in playoff and then UCLA. All we now need is for Sydney to get the kind of players he played with and we will know why we enjoyed seeing this team. It is somewhat surprising that our current backcourt has not progressed much over last year. Also, Noah seems to have left his shooting ability back in the gym during his early sophomore season. Finally, no freshmen help, possibly because of the changed coaching situation. Wait till next year or perhaps two more.

I think that what you are suggesting is easier said than done. For some reason, the kids who played for Princeton in 1997 have not come to Princeton in the last four years and may not come again in the near future. I hope I am wrong. But the trend seems to be that kids who normally would have gone to Princeton are not going there now. How come Davidson can compete nationally with top notch academic kids and Princeton cannot? I remember last year Davidson almost beat Ohio State in the tournament and had a starting five that averaged 1400 on their SAT's. Why are those kids going to Davidson instead of Princeton? Could it be the fact that they get a scholarship at Davidson? I'm not saying that I know the answer, I'm just speculating.
