Tuesday News:

Manor vs. MCCC - 7:00 pm ET

The new polls are out. Georgetown is 9th in the AP and 10th in the ESPN/USA Today rankings. Harvard is 23rd in the latter but does not appear in the former.

Additionally, Florida State holds the 23rd spot in the Associated Press table, which led me to do some research. I believe this means that the Tigers have defeated a team that was ranked at some point during the season after they met for the first time since besting Xavier at Jadwin in December of 2000. The Musketeers would crack the Top 25 two months later.

Correct me if I am wrong.

It has been a busy week for Princeton recruit Steven Cook. After much phone tag I finally talked to New Trier head coach Scott Fricke this morning so expect a full profile on Cook later today.

A senior center from South Dakota is showing interest in the Tigers, Yale and two schools closer to home.

Around the Ivy League: Brown (6-13 / 0-2) defeated Bryant by seven in the final regular season non-conference game for an Ivy team the year.

If this kid becomes a Tiger, that would make two centers named Zach(ary) from South Dakota in less than a decade. What are the odds on that?

It would appear that the article on Zackary Kraning in more than a year old. Is he still a possible Class of 2012 recruit?

Sorry about that. This piece was only recently brought to my attention (through something from November 2011 that can be found here) and I thought the blurb I linked to was more recent.

Additional research shows no commitment and Kraning is still listed as interested in Princeton, Yale and South Dakota further into the ESPN site.

Assume you're right about the ranked-teams thing (didn't check), but FSU was ranked No. 22/20 earlier in the season, so it's not a new thing that Princeton beat a team that was ranked this year.

Thanks, Kevin. I did not recall they were ranked when they played Harvard, for example. That's on me.

Either way, 12 years is a decent stretch of time between "Top 25" wins. I've adjusted my original post.

Now that Princeton has a win versus a team ranked after they played'm, it has been even longer since the Tigers defeated a team ranked at the time they played them. Anyone have the answer?

I'll keep my mouth shut for a while then reveal...
