Well I was here. We all in our section saw both Goodman and Foreman come open on final inbound in regulation, and guy next to me said before it came in "he's giving it to Darnell."

Thus ended the tale.

This team had the big man, the wing guard and the small forward but no reliable point guard. Would stole this game if Matt makes those free throws or if Ryan make that three. Still it was obvious who had the better athletes. Princeton won it on the line 19 point to 4. As my said elsewhere the refs know who has the athletes.

Still Ryan came to play again. Brodeur is the real thing. This ensemble came within one point of beating all the favorites. If we add three players of Devon, AJ and Ryan next year the team will content. Clearly the process is working.

Man, does this one hurt. We had it. A chance to be one win away from the NCAA Tournament and to demolish Princeton's season.

I just don't understand it. I really don't. If the goal is to let someone create one on one and just chuck it, why not Matt??

Despite the whining on both the PU and UP Boards, the game was well called.

And on that note, this place emptied out quick, and judging from the orange, a lot of the people still here are Tiger fans wanting to know who they'll play. I don't think tomorrow's crowd will be nearly as good.

How in the world could Princeton fans be whining when they won at the line?? I saw one bad call on Weisz, the one where Ryan was given act of shooting (more than offset by the layups we lost on late whistles) and one bad possession call.

Did Princeton have more than one turnover the last 35 minutes?

That Betley shot will be rattling in my head for the next 6 months. Speaking of Betley, who would have thought 3 months ago that our best Freshman at the conclusion of the season would be Ryan and not AJ? That kid is a total gamechanger.

Yeah, maybe 2200 max in here right now.

Corners were empty for the Ps game.

For sure. I noticed that on the Princeton boards there was also a lot of whining. Good reffing or bad, you can always depend on it. But, IMO, Penn, or at least a couple of select fans, truly deserve the prize for Loudest and Most Persistent Whiner. I liked a Penn post about a week ago in which the writer acknowledged that he enjoyed fan insults. The same goes for whining.

Since when is it whining to comment on a fact? The reduced attendance at Y-H game is undeniable.

Wasn't referring to your comment about attendance. Should've been clearer.

"Typical blind ivy refs"... what a joke. The game was called fairly.

I was logging the calls as they went by, not tracking the accumulation or trying to find all the bad calls for both sides. At no point did I make a global complaint about the officiating causing the Princeton's problems. Clearly, PU as a team that rarely fouls and that was driving a lot was going to get more foul shots. But even that last foul drawn by Cannady when he was triple-teamed was iffy.

To hear fans of a beaten opponent whine a lot always adds spring to my step. I owe them thanks. Makes the win a little more satisfying

No whining here, just some major disappointment. Thought we had you. I'm also anti-tournament, also think it's nuts to play the whole tournament on anyone's home court - but since this was a done deal I would have loved to see Penn trash your season.
BTW - I like you better this way than when you're gushing about hiking, snorkeling and Mexican food.

The play that killed us was Stephens' putback of the missed shot at the end of regulation, which tied the score. No one blocked him out. I'm not even sure any of Penn's players knew he was rolling to the rim.
