Two previews of this afternoon's game, one in the Trentonian and one in the New Britain Herald.

Richmond (5-5) was within four twice in the final two minutes against #10 Wake Forest, but the Demon Deacons held on for the 86-79 victory.

#15 Georgetown hosts Mount St. Mary's.

Denver welcomes Colorado State.

For the second time in as many months, Oregon State will play Howard, this time in Corvallis.

The most interesting matchup of the day might be Northwestern at undefeated Stanford, a tough road challenge for the Wildcats.

I thought it would be interesting to get everyone's take on their favorite and least favorite Princeton basketball moments. My favorite game was when we crushed Loyola Marymount at Jadwin. I think the game was nationally televised and Loyola was ranked pretty high nationally. I also loved the close loss to NC at Jadwin that same year I believe. Those games show you what Jadwin was and can become again. I think one of the most impressive displays was when we beat Wake Forest in the Jimmy V Classic. I remember Princeton making back door after back door in the first half and three pointers in the second half. By far my worst Princeton basketball moment was when I saw Princeton blow a 17 point halftime lead at the Palestra against Penn. I still have nightmares of Andre Logan going up for the winning layup with time running out in regulation and dribbling the ball off his foot out of bounds. I think this game more than any other was the beginning of the end for coach Scott. That season was the worst ever because that team had so much talent. I did not see the Carnegie-Mellon debacle or the infamous 41-21 Monmouth game but those would be on the list as well.

Best moment: beating UNC at Jadwin, including Bob Macadoo and Previs and Karl.

Worst: driving to the Palestra to see Brian Taylor et al. against Penn (Corky Calhoun, Morris), and getting blown out in the first half, never to recover.

I'll have more tonight, but two corrections:

Loyola Marymount was NOT ranked nationally in 1991. They were 16-15 that season.

It was the prior season where they went 26-6 and advanced to the Elite 8.

The Princeton/LMU game was on CBS, but not broadcast nationally.

Time for the national anthem!
