Yale's performance has been surprising especially in light of the two major injuries. Without the injuries to two very good BB players, Yale may have walked away with the IL regular season crown and be a credible team in the Tournament.

As the broadcasters stated this weekend, Yale does a very good job of passing the ball and moving without the ball. Although they have three main offensive players, they are less dependent than the big three at Harvard and especially Princeton to shoot and score. As a result, shooters are getting more open looks than H or Prin. Penn also shares the ball better than H and Prin.

H and P continue to play the same way with similar results. It may be simply some "bad" luck but their play is painful to watch at times. Yale keeps moving the ball trying to get a clean look at the basket. Yale commits turnovers with the estra pass but they also seem to get better looks at the basket than H or Prin. Yale also seems to work hard at protecting the rim even with the lack of height.

Maybe all things even out as you suggest regarding H and Pr or maybe Amaker and Henderson make needed adjustments. Yale and Penn may indeed challenge for the IL Crown.
