Sloppy start on D. 11 - 7 Hawaii. Shweiger has all 7 points.

25's with 4:05 to go. Princeton has 7 turnovers already. They look a bit tired.

We look a step slow in general but hanging in there. I am hopeful that Mitch will get them fired up and more focused at the half.

What has happened to Cannady? Halftime tied at 31, Mitch has another halftime project: keep ball from Thomas (19 Pts), stop the TOs, move the ball to open shooters and MAKE FTs!

You got that right. That last call on Much was ridiculous. The positive is that Hawaii can't hit their free throws.

The way they are shooting, Hawaii could foul out the entire Princeton team and still lose. And I thought Penn was bad at the line.

It seems that you can never count out Cannady as he keeps the motor running and stays focused. There will be ups and downs playing against competitive opponents as was the case today. After all, Hawaii was tied with Miami with seventeen minutes left to play and they beat Davidson pretty handily and then Davidson handily beats Akron -- they play hard and it is their home. Slim margin of error in all of these games but the key is to stay in the game when you are struggling and then make and sustain your move.

Tigers have obviously taken huge steps forward with the West Coast trip. Started all with the defensive effort against Monmouth and their defense/rebounding has been the staple as it should be. Mitch and coaching staff deserve a lot of credit.

Now, the Ivy League. Although non-conference play certainly had its up/downs, their schedule has toughened them up. Should be a sweet flight back home.

*** Not a fan when Mitch goes to the stall tactics -- Bell gets his 5th foul. Play to win; not to lose.

Among other things, we got a little preview of the quality of officiating we can expect in the coming weeks!

Next stop: the palestra.

There is talent for sure but understandably uneven play from game to game other than Much. They will be welcoming the highest recruit in a long time to join them next year which should be fun.

The West Coast road trip, 4-1, against good to very good competition after the poor start was a pleasant surprise but a long road awaits the Tigers with no guarantees.

Should the Tigers have played such a competitive non-conference schedule? Good question. I would rather that they try and fail versus playing a schedule of Lafayettes' and FDUs'.
