This game now has added importance for Princeton.

Should Penn manage to pull the upset, Princeton--unbelievably-- would be in a serious dogfight the rest of the year to even make the IL tourney.

It's going to be a old fashioned Penn - Princeton war.

Bring it on.

Yeah really tough after these battles this weekend. Let’s hope our guys are a little more fresh and would love the upset even though I think it will be a tall order.

Princeton shot 50% from 3, had 16 assists and only 8 turnovers, scored 100 pts, took 12 more shots, all at home and lost to Brown. That's because Brown shot 62% from 3.

As a side note, Brown shot 12 more FT's than Princeton, including 18-9 in the second half yet it doesn't appear that Princeton fans are blaming the refs.

I agree that it will be a tall order. That is a tough team to beat once, let alone twice.

That said--if Princeton still thinks it has any chance at finishing first in the IL, it must win this game. If it loses, it would be 3 games behind Penn and effectively 4 games behind with 8 to play, since presumably the head to head games would be the first tiebreaker.

Why in the world is this thing at 6 on a Tuesday? TV? Really makes it tough for Penn fans to get up there in time.

They really are the worst. It's not just hyperbole.

The idiotic Princeton schedule also hurts both teams in that they are the only two that have to scrunch in 5 league games within a 9 day period.

Or down from New York without burning part of a work day.

Even losing Tuesday, I think Princeton is going to make the tournament with room to spare.

I think winning Tuesday would help Penn more than it would hurt Princeton, if that makes sense.
