Miami is too big and too fast for us. Would probably be at least a little closer if our guys acknowledged this and didn't try to take these guys head on.

I would disagree. They are getting intimidated on the finishes--not all of these shots are completely wide open. And cannot get a board--that is the key. Miami is just so athletic--they have everything to do with Princeton getting frustrated.

Yeah, a few cases of hearing footsteps but mostly getting snuffed or altered.

Much is the only one who is consistently getting open shots. Unfortunately, he's 0 for 5.

Some shots are getting stuffed. Just as many if not more are wide-open. Also, they're getting stuffed at the rim because they can't hit a plethora of wide-open 3s they usually make against any competition. No space to operate.

Again, Lehigh was creaming us by 19 at the half, so this isn't the competition. To be honest, Miami has been real sloppy on offense and given up lots of open looks on defense. We've had our chances...just playing scared.

I don't know about playing scared. But poorly, yes.

Who is this Gladden the announcers speak of?

Looked like big Will is in a lot of pain. Really feel for the guy. He was hustling out there and had a couple of nice looking moves while he was out there--gave us a very different look.

Cannady was due for an off-night after starting the season as one of the very best 3pt shooters in the nation (combining makes with %).

But why did it have to be tonight? The more open he is, the worse he misses. It's been that kind of non-conf slate thus far.

Hope Will is okay. Even without scoring, we benefit from his presence in the paint. Maybe he should just sit out non-conf as a precaution.

At this point it looks like the IL will go 0-7 on the evening.

Unless you think Princeton will come back like it did against Lehigh....but I don't see that happening here.

The Mike James hype is looking pretty empty right now...

Yale losing by bigger margin against lower ranked team.

And I don't feel better.

The Ivy tourney will be a godsend this year. Any team could end up making it and winning it.

Stevens just does not look right out there. In contrast, Bell may have his shooting stroke back.

Weird = the espn website is ahead of the TV broadcast.

Announcer said Yale is giving TCU all they can handle. They are losing by 19. I guess espn fired all their producers.

Really getting sick of announcers talking about how much better the Ivies are now than ever before. But I guess I keep forgetting that Ivy League basketball didn't really get started until Tommy went to Harvard.

Nice pass from Much goes right through Stevens hands. Come on man!

Quite honestly though there aren't too many teams that could beat Miami the way they are playing and shooting tonight.
