Big time choke in front of a great crowd. Credit Dartmouth for doing what they're apparently good at having done it 2x in a row. But it's a game that Brown shouldn't win. For Dartmouth to make only one three (missing tons of wide-open shots, when what they do well is shoot the three) and to still have to win it on a buzzer-beater - it's really a poor job by the Bears, who wilted down the stretch. 2nd time this season they've gotten comfortable and then lost some composure after losing a big lead. That will happen with a young team.

You'd think Brown had never seen a 3-2 zone before. It stopped them in their tracks. Great call by the Dartmouth staff, and Brown was too tight to complete the North-South passes over the top of that zone down the stretch.

Emery with the game of his life, he was everywhere. But the Cambridge block at the rim was clean.

What a great play by Hunsaker to save it. He got bumped pretty good on the shot too.

Best part of this game - giving the fans that showed the chance to rush the court. I haven't seen that happen at the Pitz since Eric Blackiston drilled a three at the buzzer to beat Princeton in 1995.
LET'S go BRU-no (duh. nuh. nuh-nuh-nuh)

A good sign when you play poorly and win. DeWolf had a very good game, 13 rbs. Hunsaker and Anderson did a good job on Berry.

Dartmouth's big men used a good high/low post game to get easy shots inside. And their PG did a good job in the second half of driving and dishing to a big. Dartmouth's D was able to deny penetration in the second half, aside a few times when Anderson asserted himself and got inside for layups or got fouled. For the most part they denied penetration and also were able to get out on our shooters.

We could have used Speith to get the ball at the foul line and make drop down passes to Howard as they did so often early last year. The Bears had no one to handle the high post with dexterity and experience. They got frustrated and clumsy with the ball trying to find decent shots.

Matt DeWolf played 28 minutes and scored 8 points with 13 rebounds. None more critical than on the missed Dartmouth FT with 7 seconds left. He passed to Hunsaker who took it the length and banked a buzzer beater. A learning experience for a young team. And a winning one at that.
