The dance continues at 9:40 tomorrow. San Diego State has an elite big man in LeDee and a good defensive PG in Butler, but they don't seem to have the same plethora of weapons Auburn had. Still, they're a top defensive team and had great success in the Mountain West. This should be a good one.

I’ve watched a number of their games this season. Same MO as in the last N seasons, but LaDee adds a new dimension and Butler is a playmaker on both sides of the ball. Yale won’t have to worry about getting sped up, but rebounding and finishing near the basket will be difficult.

SDS is a very tough and tenacious rebounding team, not supremely talented in terms of pure shooters but in some ways this is a mirror image of a Jones team.

yes.
sdsu is well coached. they will hard hedge and maybe trap high ball screens.
you will have to go inside to win this and battle a grown man etc. this is where they have the advantage in strength and age and thats why they will play those odds in a pressure packed game.

was proud of the fight there but was also exposed by auburn. i said our difficult matchup was 3-4 at auburn. broome was a given so didnt count him though he went off and passed better than i thought he would particularly out of double. i think it also shows how hard of a time our bigs have playing physicla without fouling against grown butt power bigs.
then the thug 3 was removed from the game. that helped bc he was a matchup problem.

here i dont know what you do on this big. hes a beast and like broome finishes in a variety of ways. in some ways you need trunk leverage and to protect wolf. so townsend probably plays more.

i admire anyone who can "disdain" yales team and james.
mitch henderson was a real bitch when i played against him relative to
Earl or goodrich etc. but i dont care enough abt that anymore.

so i go with my training "harvard sucks and princeton doesnt matter."

i do however "disdain" diehard run of the mill auburn fans from childhood so despite having a horse farm there will enjoy fridays victory which i didnt expect until i die.

so it's house money for me. but i hope our kids play well of course.
this might be the peak.

i have already had the pleasure of talking serious sh--t to a veritable potpourri of contacts- ex sec athletes, auburn alums auburn alums, professional sec homers with big mouths and even bigger wallets, my one son who has an offer there and even a few run of the mill auburn crackers at their ATL sports bar around the corner from my house where i grabbed some brunch this morning.
as fun as it was to walk downtown auburn thursday in my yale gear, the last 36 hours have truly been memorable.

chuck barkley who lives arnd the corner during nba season is my last unhit target.

you think getting into it with an opposing fan on this board is fun? this has been like going from middle school to the major leagues.

thank you to the yale team and coaches! good luck tonight but i am numb from friday and maybe always will be

Sign in the student section when the Bulldogs played at Jadwin: "Yale was my safety school"
I thought "disdain" was a better choice than "hatred"

kudos to ben raab. a few weeks ago he still knew less about ball than some on on these boards.

now he is taking my real time posts and making great articles out of them....the latest is on Samson Aletan and it is well done.

the thing i love about Samson is his moxie.

he actually thought he could cleanly block what ultimately became a not good for yale auburn drive in CRUNCH time; he thought he could punch down a follow dunk fresh off the bench in 1H; he thought he could back scratch a seemingly open dunk with Broome lurking in H2; most importantly he did block 2 of auburns last three shot attempts including williams' floater where he makes an sec power forward look short armed on schamis' real time apex photo.

special athlete and length for that young man especially at this level. my god he will be a monster at yale if he stays the course.

lastly good to see him get an NIL spot pitching chicken on instagram today.

The dissing the Ivies get from the $ conferences far outweighs anything that james can mumble from the bar.

Go elis!

Take it from a Penn/Columbia Law guy---Princeton always imagines itself as the equal of Harvard and Yale. Educationally, that's undoubtedly true. But ask Harvard and Yale people---Princeton doesn't exist to them.

Aztecs are not a potent three-point shooting team, and they are powerful, so this should be a pack it in on D and spread them out on offense game. Maybe try to run opportunistically when the defensive rebound comes right to one of your guys or you get a steal.

Like the Auburn game, Yale off to a horrendous start.

Rim has a lid on it.

LaDee is not going to maintain that percentage from three, but Yale needs to settle down on offense a little bit.

They are settling in somewhat. Hanging in there. Wolf having a better half than he did on Friday. Got to stay out of foul trouble.

Yale too sloppy with the ball and has missed some easy finishes after some nice interior passing.

This feels at the start like one where you just have to not let things get out of hand. SDSU is a terrible three-point shooting team, Yale's good shooters are missing, just weather the storm.
