Exactly one minute left and Cook fouls out. Up 13.

Bruner clanks his first FT, hits second. Yale no longer fouling, just chasing. Stephens with a layup, then a dumb foul with 31 seconds left.

Who is the dolt who prematurely ejaculated the streamers?

And for that matter, why were they rainbow streamers rather than Princeton black & orange?

Last few seconds of keepaway and the Tigers are dancing!

71-59 victory. Streamers tossed a second too early, but then a great celebration on the court. Black and Orange flag waves over the Palestra.

Total vindication for the first Ivy team to go 16-0 in conference play.

11-26 from three. 14-26 from two. 15 assists, 8 turnovers. Yale held to 6-20 from three, 14-33 from two. FTs pretty even.

Yale did get 14 ORs on its 33 missed FGA, not so good for the Tigers, but they got the job done in the end.

My adrenalin levels are low enough to type now.

1. Myles Stephens is the man. Carried us again. His lateral foot speed is unbelievable. Seems like he should be on the football team also.

2. Cannady and to a lesser extent Cook finally made some three's; otherwise could have been Penn redux and overtime.

3. Gladson and Miller had I think 9 points and played excellent perimeter D, as pointed out be the TV analysts.

4. Weisz up and down, but made some big plays. At the next level in the tournament, he may become less of an asset.

5. I'm happy for the team; they worked hard and deserve a spot in the NCAA tournament.

6. The format for the tournament needs to be altered for next year, but we may get in as a 3 or 4 seed, and then who knows?

7. We have room on the squad for another player. I hope a big man was watching and was favorably impressed.

I watched Oregon-Arizona last night and Stephens looks and plays a lot like the first-line guys on those teams. One of his spin drives today was right through the arms and bumping bodies of multiple Yale defenders.

In both tourney games he also didn't get discouraged offensively when he got blocked occasionally, but also didn't make it personal and start forcing things. Sometimes it's hard to find good players who don't err one side or the other after getting stuffed.

If it was a League thing - not knowing who would win and using them for both games - I'd expect a rainbow of red, green, light blue, dark blue, crimson, brown, orange, and a medium blue or dark red for Penn.

Thanks again for the game by game blow.

Someone wrote on a prior post as to why can a team that goes undefeated have less than a 50-50 chance to win the IL Tournament. It certainly appeared tough for three of four halfs. Why == because it is simply difficult to win two games in two days against good competition with this format for a myriad of reasons. If the Tigers lost, we can only imagine some of the comments.

I hope that the IL reconsiders the existence of the tournament and/or format so that any team, Harvard-Yale-Penn etc, does not go through a similar drill with an undefeated record. I doubt that they will.

Congratulations to Mitch/coaching staff, seniors plus Stephens/Cannady/Bell for a memorable season. Weisz, Cook and Mitch deserve special praise for their leadership and surviving the Palestra.

Go Tigers! Let's hope that they confound WVU, Butler or someone else -- they might.

Looked much more like leftovers from last year's Philly Pride Parade.

This was a long time coming. Really happy for Mitch and the seniors -- they deserve this after the last several years.

Hey Kevin, we Tiger fans must be blowing up your website. I get a resource limit message when I click your link.

Yeah, sorry about that, Selection Sunday is always our biggest traffic load by far (mostly for the NIT bracketology). Think it's doing better now.

No worries. Thank you for providing such quality free content.

Just to be clear, there was no hyphen between the penpenultimate and penultimate words.

"Myles Stephens is the man. Carried us again. His lateral foot speed is unbelievable. Seems like he should be on the football team also."

Mitch might have his 19th nervous breakdown by November if he had to watch Myles play football.
