Fun to read, but kind of a joke to think we are the 2nd best team in the City right now. We can compete with any but Villanova, but we are not consistently the 2nd best---at least until we unleash Brodeur, who is down in almost every category.

"we"? not sure what you and I can do to unleash Brodeur, but I am happy to try.

The "fan's we", of course.

Generally, I don't refer to my teams as "we" but I feel a privilege to do so on this board.

Well, we plan to unleash him tomorrow so let's hope SD allows us to do it.

Tomorrow's game will be a 3 pt shootout. Quakers may have a shade too much firepower from beyond the arc for the Tigers, although our kids will be prepared for it. Hope both teams play well because that will make a very close game inevitable. A Quaker win makes them the tourney favorite assuming no serious injuries along the way.

The tourney favorite? I think Aiken and Mason will have a say in that before long.

The Tigers would have to be a pretty bad shooting team for us to have too much 3 pt. firepower. We do have a few 3 pt. shooters, but Foreman, Woods, and Donahue take way too many of ours. Betley, Wood, and Jones should be the only ones with a green light. Maybe Woods is getting there - it seems like his shooting is improving.

That may be his actual occupation before long if he doesn't get back on the court.

I hate to say it, but I feel like some of the opponents are the reason Antonio's 3-point shooting has been so improved. He needs time to get that shot off, and time is something he has had recently. I'm not sure it will be the same tomorrow.

I'm actually quite fine with Princeton contesting Woods and Foreman at the 3 point line. These are not usually the guys you want shooting those shots anyways.

Will make it easier for them to penetrate and find easier shots for themselves or, even better, to find other shooters in whom we have more confidence.

Woods is doing what he's supposed to be doing - hitting 3's if left wide open, otherwise laying it off. Nothing wrong with that.

And yes, nothing wrong with Princeton contesting Woods or Foreman. It means the D isn't targeting Betley and Brodeur.

Penn opens as 1 point favorite. About right where expected.

Where it will end up is the real question.

Not sure why we are the underdog, but I like the role.

Home court. Based on the current odds, Princeton would be favored on a neutral court.

Kind of overstating your "underdogness" when the spread is only a point. Especially considering, if Penn does pull off a victory, it will be one of the more significant triumphs for the team in recent years.
