Wednesday at 8:00, Kirby Sports Center, Easton, PA. Although the Quakers should win handily, this game is a bit unnerving.

Penn has a long and storied history of laying eggs at Kirby. Take nothing for granted.

Unless we're playing Yale in a playoff game on a rainy March evening. Man was that one fun.

I remember a playoff game against Princeton in 1981, I think. Not a good night.

I was there for Yale only, thankfully.

Lafayette is much better than Howard, so based on last night we should take nothing for granted. They will be decidedly less athletic, but more organized. Will be curious to see who plays off the bench. Nice minutes for Simmons against Howard, but will be good to see if it translates to a game like this.

Yes. That was the night I became a Princeton hater. We fell behind by 7 points and COULD NOT CATCH UP.

Mike I agree - Lafayette is better than its record. It's a dangerous game.

I seem to remember 2 awful treks to Easton, once for a playoff game in the late 90's - maybe '97? - and once sometime in the '80s I think but don't remember the year. Bad memories.

Would like to see more of Caleb Wood. Simmons is an OK option off the bench if the other team doesn't have bruisers. I don't yet have a read on Scott - looks either wonderful or not, with little in between. Jones had a wild ORat/DRat of 170/69 last night - for whatever reason when he has a good game he's able to suppress the other team's offense in ways that are hard to explain.

The disappointing 90's playoff game vs. Princeton was in 1996, but that game was played at Lehigh's Stabler Arena, in Bethlehem (not Easton). We are 2-1 in Ivy Playoff games that were played in Easton - defeating Princeton in 1980 & Yale in 2002, but losing to Princeton in 1981.

I always confuse Lehigh and Lafayette. Is there a difference between Easton and Bethlehem?

All I can remember is that awful ride out of there in traffic on that never-ending one lane road out of the arena area.

That would be Lehigh - you get there via Quakertown exit of NE Extension, 663, then 309, and then you make a right on the road that leads to Stabler Arena.

To go to Lafayette, you go up NE Extension one exit further (Allentown) and go on 22 East to the last exit in PA, make a left and go up the hill.

Both are accessible via GPS! LOL!

My first memory is seeing a banner at Layafette reading "How 'bout them Pards".

Any TV? I seem to remember that the Patriot League has free streaming.

I also think it is on an Allentown TV station channel 60 WBPH. I think I get that channel on Comcast in Delco (maybe channel 22 and 1060 for anyone else in that area).

Key tonight will be to get the extra possessions (Lafayette has significant negative turnover margin and is terrible offensive rebounding) and keep them off the 3-pt line because they have pretty good shooters and they take a very large proportion of their shots from 3. If it is a contest of who makes more open shots, we will lose a game we should win most nights. We have to get better shots than them by forcing them away from comfort zone and dominating boards.

The Penn - Lafayette game is being televised on WBPH, channel 60 in Bethlehem. That channel is available to DirecTV subscribers (and probably also DISH) in the Philadelphia market. It may be available on cable systems in the Philadelphia area. Here is a list of WBPH cable affiliations in Southeast Pennsylvania and New Jersey, This 2012 document is the most recent list found on their web site.

For viewers outside the local media market, here is a web site that is offering a video link to the game. The same rules apply. To avoid getting your computer hacked, don't download anything and don't pay for anything.

Tip off time is SCHEDULED for 8:00 pm. I have used CAPS to alert you to the fact that the Lafayette women are tipping off against the Princeton women at 6:00 pm, and the men's game may not start at the scheduled time.
