The Trenton Times, the Daily Princetonian, the Ithaca Journal and the Columbia Spectator preview this weekend's games.

Dan Mavraides is profiled by Foster City Patch.

Here's a transcript of what will be read before a moment of silence this evening in memory of Christian "Crunch" Regulski.

Georgetown's Chris Wright had surgery on his left hand and is actually expected back for the NCAA tournament.

Former Hoya Jeff Green was traded from Oklahoma City to Boston.

The New York Daily News outs Chris Young as an intellectual.

Judson Wallace is the subject of a long piece on the ACB web site. I ran the article through Google Translate from the original Spanish for you.

This KC Metro Sports package includes a fairly vicious one-handed dunk by Princeton recruit Denton Koon.

Oregon State (10-16) rallied from down double digits to defeat Stanford, 87-80.

Another tough loss for Denver (13-15) this by six in overtime at Louisiana-Lafayette.

Falling behind 18-2 early, Northwestern (16-11) was able to close within one but never take the lead. Penn State defeated the Wildcats 66-52.

Did you see Mr. James' analysis that Jadwin Gym has, by far, the best home court advantage in the conference at 3.8 points? Pretty cool for an airplane hangar.

Also, I think the elimination of early action will make recruiting in-demand student-athletes a bit easier. I don't see any cons to bringing it back, athletically speaking.

One con is that some recruits will need to have their grades/profile in order earlier than they need to in the current system.

I do think that the ability to (as much as you can with no LOI) "lock in" a prospect who might go on to have stellar senior season and draw attention from bigger scholarship programs / have people whispering in their ear to go elsewhere is going to help.

R.W. Enoch, Jr. said,

Well, they wouldn't HAVE to apply early... would they? If they didn't have their grades/profile in order, they could just wait until December.

For the higher profile recruits (while this may sound backwards), you're likely going to have to lock them in earlier instead of later.

Otherwise there may not be a slot left for them in their sport from admissions.

What is unknown is what % of early admissions acceptances will make up the full class.

R.W. Enoch, Jr. said,

Historically, it was between 1/4 and 1/3 of the total class. Larger class sizes and unknown renewed demand for EA may change that, but I doubt it.

Did anyone see Northwestern get destroyed at home by Penn State last night? For some reason, Northwestern always loses big to Penn State. I hope Princeton does not have to play them in the post-season. Sometimes the "Princeton offense" looks terrible. Northwestern relies too much on perimeter shooting. I'm glad that Princeton has more balance this year.
