If I get my Finals grading done in time, I'm hoping to head down there with the boychicks, who have never been to the Palestra.

Never been to the Palestra? What kind of parent are you? I don't even know what to say to that. Clearly that's some form of child abuse.

Well, I got enough grief from my NY relatives over the years asking how in the blazes I could subject my kids to such fervent Cub intensity in hostile territory. Untold damage, it was alleged, was being committed.

I am grinning ear to ear as I type this.

Are you planning on coming for the 12/27 game? I'd love to meet you at the game.

If you have time, you should think about staying around after the game is over. Often times they let kids shoot hoops on the court. Also, the players come out to meet with family and friends. I have pictures after last year's Harvard game of my 11-year-old son along with both Matt Howard & Ryan Betley... Very cool.

If his kids are any younger than 10 years old, he saved his kids a lot of grief and preserved the Penn brand for a better day. We're at least now a team that a self respecting person can admire. They represent well, play hard, play with purpose, and play together.

If your kids plays basketball, remind them to learn to hit free throws as they watch the game.

I was there and thought we were going to get a crack at 'Nova in the Eastern Final and avenge the 1971 massacre. But, alas, it was just not to be.

Yale’s loss at home to Monmouth (by 20) is interesting given Monmouth played without their best player (same as V Penn). And Harvard’s use of starters vs BU included 3 players who had yet to play this season and none of the 4* Soph class. Princeton looked good vs USC (sans 4 regulars) and then not as good in a tough loss to Middle Tenn. Seems like a fair amount of uncertainty as we get close to conference games.

That would be horrible for the Ivy League given the publicity that its teams are much better and it's now a true mid-level conference.

Can't wait for March 10 at the Palestra! Wish we could just jump to that right now. Most important thing between now and then is to avoid any serious injuries.

Princeton seems to be looking better but Yale looking worse based on injury - they didn't have Copeland for the Monmouth game so being down 3 top players is tough.

Harvard is just a bit confusing. They have some injuries as Aiken missed those last two games but Amaker is also using ridiculous lineups from a casual observers point of view.

Princeton looked pretty good against MTSU and most of the comments on the Princeton board are accurate. Cannady is the best pg in the league by a wide margin. MTSU probably has a slightly different take on the game as they missed bunny after bunny. Still Princeton is very good and plays hard and as a team. They are the team to beat at this point in the season. It's good that Penn gets this test so early in the year.

Isn't Bell the point guard for Princeton this year? That's not to say Cannady isn't very good -- just that he basically plays shooting guard.
