FWIW, Penn played a bit of the old 1-3-1 late in its game against the Brownies, to good effect. So there's that.

Tonight will be interesting. Four very tired teams, two of them likely to be pretty pisssed off.

AND it's well before my bedtime, but late enough to catch the Early Bird Special at Denny's.

Jones has indeed become a very good coach. His strategy of going small confused Mitch and the coaching staff for a while. Strikes me as the second time that Mitch has been out coached in IL play which is unusual. Yale presented match up problems for the Tigers as Penn did but for different reasons.

I agree that Yale would clearly have been the IL favorite this year with Mason and Bruner -- do not think that there are any outstanding IL teams this year -- dog fight. Oni is very good but he is an up and down player. Phils has really come up and Copeland would have been an incredible 6th man off the bench.

Bell, Cannady and Stephens (muscle cramp at the end of the game) played a lot of minutes so did Brown players. Hopefully, the Tigers big 3 will use their experience to get ready for tonight. Some other players need to step up.

Oni was "down" largely because Stephens and co. took him out of the game. It looked like the plan was not to let him beat the Tigers, even if that created more room for others. Early on, he and Stephens defended each other well, but eventually Myles's physical game wore him down and he picked up some fouls.

Tough, gritty win by the Tigers on a night that they looked pretty rusty, particularly on offense. Long stretches with very little motion and too much hero ball for my tastes. Yale was ready and picked Stevens clean at least four times and other Tigers as well. Stevens was fantastic on defense, though, pretty much taking Oni out of the game. And Bell played one of the best all around games of his career.

I generally don't mind DC firing from any where the spirit moves him to but a couple of his shots last night would have been considered forced even from Steph Curry. Petey would have swallowed a basketball if one of his players took the kind of jump back jumpers from 25' that DC cranked up last night.

Great to have Gladson back on the floor but he still has a way to go. He (and Brennan) made a nice hook shot early but he looked gassed after not a great number of minutes.

Very few minutes from Much, Schwieger or Richmond (can we give this guy a nickname? Zoh maybe?) so I expect we'll see more minutes from them tonight after last night's marathon (unless their minutes were down because dreaded bug has caught them).

Red Panda killed it at half time again!

Go Tigers!

Oni seems to be in a Soph Slump. He does have talent, expectations may be the issue.

Gone the way of the peach baskets and the 2-handed set shot.

Just in time to tune in the horror movie on Svengoolie.

I would think that Henderson would try to slow the pace of the game with Brown trying to speed it up. Slower pace may permit more minutes for the Big 3 plus it would take Bears out of their preferred tempo.

Stephens may be on Cambridge with Bell on Anderson at times. These two guys are essential on defense. DesRosiers has improved as a defender but is certainly no shutdown defender. Brown is a small quick team that plays with a lot of intensity. Defense is certainly a question mark plus they are very young.

Mitch's strategy maybe to attempt a grind it out win. Do not see the Tigers covering big spread unless Brown is exhausted from the tempo of play last night.

The most incredible thing about Red Panda, if you've been listening to Scott Van Pelt on SportsCenter, is that her main unicycle was stolen recently....and he showed video of her being off her game. Apparently, Friday night she was using her backup unicycle--and so the fact that she CRUSHED IT was just that more amazing.

Good news: The Golden State Warriors are going to get her a new unicycle after the season ends: https://deadspin.com/rejoice-red-panda-has -a-new-c...
