Georgetown visits Syracuse this afternoon. The Hoyas are 15-3 in games decided by three points or less since John Thompson III became their head coach.

Northwestern hosts Big Ten leader Purdue.

Denver travels to Louisiana-Monroe.

Richmond is in Pittsburgh to face Duquesne.

The New York Times has reporter Pete Thamel embedded with the Cornell men's basketball team this weekend on their road trip to Harvard and Dartmouth. Thamel's frequent blog posts give you a view of life away from home for an Ivy League basketball team that many of us have not seen before.

Princeton alum Sean Gregory wrote a piece in this week's Time Magazine about the Boston Celtics.

Around the Ivy League: Cornell (15-5 / 7-0) scored three times in the final 25 seconds for an amazing 72-71 comeback victory against Harvard (6-17 / 1-6). Brown (13-8 / 5-2) ended the 24 game home conference winning streak that Penn (8-15 / 3-3) had built up, defeating the Quakers 66-61. Columbia (11-11 / 4-3) beat Dartmouth (8-13 / 1-6) in Hanover, 59-50.

The Tigers just don't know how to win. Every game it's a different facet of the game that lets them down. Tonight it was poor foul shooting and too many fouls on defense. The shame of it all is that this team has some outstanding players and is much better than their record. It seems like they have led every Ivy contest this year in the second half only to lose down the stretch. It may be more psychological than anything else. It must be beyond frustrating for the players and coacn Johnson alike. Last year, Princeton suffered a number of blowouts in the league. At least this year the team is competing every night. What can Savage do for an encore? I think the biggest problem is that they commit too many fouls. I don't think Finley has had one game when he wasn't in foul trouble. When Finley is not in the game, the Tigers struggle on both ends of the floor. Thus the game plan for all opposing teams is to get Finley in foul trouble. Has Princeton ever had a season when it suffered such a fould differential? Have there been any games this year when they actually had fewer fouls than the opponent?
