The article clearly states Friday morning- we've got to try to be on point about matters related to dates and times.

Ugh, what a dope. Will he be kicked off the team and/or expelled? Assuming the article is accurate, it is sad that such a great and accomplished player could not keep it together and make better decisions as a senior Captain, he really let his teammates down.

If that's the Wawa near Forbes College (nee PIC), I made many purchases there. Weird to think of it as a site of even minor infamy.

The Trentonian article does not sound good for DC3.

I hope he is treated impartially and await his side of the story, if such exists. Even if provoked, one would hope that his self-control would be adequate to the situation. Terrible news for him and the team.

I can't remember hearing about anything similar happening with the BB team in the past. Not the kind of first anybody's going to be proud of.

As you suggest, everyone deserves due process rather than just jumping to conclusions which seems to be fashionable these days. University will have to complete a comprehensive internal review and there are probably a number of eye witnesses. Devin will probably remain under suspension until the Princeton investigation has been concluded which may take a few weeks. At the end of the day, Devin should be accountable for his actions, if any, just like any other student.

This year has been loaded with Ivy and some Tiger surprises. This one is obviously a big one and possible game changer for the team but it is what it is.

Not a great advertisement for our "genius" Governor pushing for legalization of marijuana so that he can raise some tax revenue.

Doesn’t sound good. Unlike many of us (including me), Devon’s screw-up has a huge audience and potentially life disrupting consequences. I wish him the best and hope that, whatever actually happened, he owns up to it and learns from it. It would be terrible for someone with so much promise to get untracked.

Perhaps not. He's headed toward his final semester in Princeton. Has he been associated with sort of conduct, as described, before today?
I know you've mentioned David Blatt in prior posts; to me, passing judgment on this boy tonight would be tantamount to what the Cavaliers did in taking LeBron's opinion of Blatt, and running with it to push the coach away from the Mistake by the Lake.

I remember when Jack Montague, Yale team captain was thrown out of Yale in his senior year after very serious allegations were made regarding sexual misconduct. It struck me that there was a rush to judgment by some. Montague filed a lawsuit against Yale that was apparently resolved in January 2018 under sealed court documents.

I would suspect that Princeton will do a very thorough investigation that may take some time as they need to be on firm ground if they take action against Devin. These are serious charges against a student if he indeed took a swing at a campus policeman.

I don't wish to distract attention from this thread other than to point out that the Jack Montague lawsuit against Yale has NOT been settled.

The case remains open and many important questions arising from that case remain unresolved.

I remember the campus security (I suppose they are no longer called proctors) as usually making an effort to defuse and act like the proverbial Dutch uncle toward students engaging in "challenging" behavior. Maybe things are different now, but I have to wonder when a student escalates such situations.

Sir, I suppose anything's possible. But I try to give the benefit of doubt to what I've actually witnessed. And your team played a game on the Boardwalk a month ago- all I remember is Princeton #3 getting the crap kicked out of him by Iona defenders on seemingly every play down the court- and in the face of it, he remained consistently dispationate, and continued to play.
Also, the newspaper account had it that he took a swing at the officer that missed; and I understand that throwing a punch isn't shooting a 3, but somehow I don't see this kid missing a target unless he's trying to miss.

I'm not convicting anyone until I hear the evidence. But neither am I willing to push wishful, low likelihood narratives as the more likely scenarios.

I find it ironic that you speak about what "you "actually witnessed" when you did not, in fact, actually witness this event, and conclude - to use current vernacular, without evidence - that he intended to miss. It would be nice if your prediction is right, but more rational to wait for more evidence to be brought out.

So the paper is making it up that Cannaday took a swing at a campus police officer and was in a WaWa at 3;30am? Hmmmm

I guess Princeton wishes this was the quintessential fake news.

Even if the reported information is correct, there certainly could be more to a story that involves a young athletic male person of color dealing with the police and a predominantly white community at a convenience store in the early morning hours.

It will be interesting to hear from Cannady, or more likely, his lawyer.

I would not be surpised if Princeton:
1. Hires an investigative firm to conduct a thorough but expedited investigation. It sounds like there are a number of witnesses.
2. Utilize outside counsel to guide the University throughout the decision making process.
3. Be deliberative and thoughtful in the decision making process as to what action to take, if any.

Universities live in a world where there is litigation risk regarding whatever they decide upon. It is indeed a litigous world that we live in.

There is a window until the next Ivy game, 2/1, as to the proper course of action. I wonder if Mitch has ditched his recruiting trip and has returned to Princeton.

It is fair to say that Devin is not a kid at 22 years of age and he is responsible and accountable for his actions. I have always been a big fan of his from virtually Day 1 as he plays with his heart and his soul but the University needs to do the right thing no matter what are the ramifications. Good advice from parents is simply to walk away from trouble if at all possible and use good judgment.
