Princeton's average margin against Brown the last three seasons is +18pts. None within single digits.

Too big of spread for this Brown team. Slow the tempo and force Bears to shoot contested 3s.

Cambridge seems to be everything today that he was last night. But, with so much help, it is hard to double team anyone in a Brown uniform. One would think that we should slow this game down. We can't improve our offense much over what we are doing now -- and the game is tied at HT! What can Mitch do? We'll see if we have any way to slow down Brown in the second half. This is not your grandma's Brown team. And, it is very young.

We are having difficulty with defense and it seems that some of our players are a step slow. Do any of our players have the flu??

Why in the heck didn't we get Cambridge out of the game? He had 4 fouls for the last 8 minutes of the game.

With the Ivy Tourney, there's no difference between #1 and #4. But this is a pretty bad loss. Vegas just went bald from pulling out its hair. Too much post-break rust on defense (again) and Cambridge hit several miracle 3s I wouldn't expect from Steph Curry or Paul George.

I guess you can't dance with the devil in OT and come out on top all the time. Gotta take care of business in regulation...the guys got complacent up 4 with 2m left.

Simply do not understand Mitch's strategy of playing an up tempo game. Tigers played poorly this weekend. Brown is an up and coming team for sure.

You guys benefitted from a lot of boards that B would have otherwise gotten as a result of Cambridge being in. He was gun shy against your bigs because he didn't want to pick up that 5th.

Brown wasn't much better and had many more opportunities.

Coming in, it shot 76.4% for the year.

OB, your gloats always make me smile, unlike those from imbeciles like PN. Nice game. I suggest that you watch it.

The only similar no-D game I can remember was the post-season scoreathon against Evansville a number of years ago. But that game featured a lot of slick team offense, whereas this was more a series of tremendous one-on-one plays. Not as much my cup of tea, and I kept wishing Savage would shut up about how great all the scoring was. No, it kind of sucked all the way for me--get some stops, for crying out loud. Double the guy with the ball, pressure the ball, get in the passing lanes, create some havoc--you have little to lose given the shooting percentage being yielded by staying "sound." (And somebody tell the refs that Princeton dribblers deserve the same consideration as Brown dribblers.) There were some very nice shot blocks in the game, pretty much the only way besides a turnover to get a stop without incurring a foul call.

Cambridge really was unreal. That last trey of his was not only over two defenders, he had to twist his body to get squared up. Why the Tigers didn't drive at him with Bell or Stephens while he had four fouls is beyond me--there were plenty of opportunities, but they kept going away from it. Maddening. Anderson was terrific also, and in general Brown feasted on Princeton's inability to guard both the three-point line and the rim.

Plenty of great individual play offensively by a bunch of guys. I thought Much was terrific, not just scoring but chasing down ORs. Cannady was otherworldly at times, Stephens was unstoppable for stretches. etc. But I really, really hate rooting for a team that can't get three stops in a row and doesn't seem to want to get the other team uncomfortable on offense.

And I don't want to hear another word about a bad shooting background at Jadwin for visiting teams.

When Cambridge had 4 fouls, he became quite timid on D, aside from the key block at the end of regulation. Princeton had a lot of offensive boards late in the game, and this was a primary reason for it.

There was one play (forget if it was late in the 2nd half or OT) where Cambridge was playing up on top, reached in, and pretty much recoiled in anticipation of a foul call that never came.
