Do you know how much fun the thread is for us non-PPers?

I would imagine that most of the IL was rooting for Penn tonight so, yes.

Sure. Chips. Shoulders. Thin envelopes. Whatever makes you feel good.

Princeton's long home win streak got broken in crazy fashion on Saturday night, but tonight thoroughly dismantled it.

It would have to be a decent sized win (by a couple possessions or more).



It was a very decent sized win.

Penn jumped from 182 to 140 tonight.

And not for nothing, but I was very prescient in my prediction that Penn would win by enough to overtake Princeton. I was so elated after the win at Jadwin that I almost ran over to P38 to give him a hug. Almost...

Funny, that is an enduring memory of the win at Michigan when Jerome hit that runner. Just spontaneously hugging strangers in our little contingent of Penn fans.

The other thing last night reminded me of was the year we blew out Princeton at Jadwin after blowing the huge lead at home. It’s one thing to do it when your rival is down. It’s another to do it in what you expect to be a pretty even fight.

Did Penn play their best game of the season or is Princeton not that good? Or both?

Penn played very well. Utilized the inside-outside game to perfection and Princeton could not defend both. When Penn has guys hitting the 3, AJ will get single coverage. Great great gameplan by Donahue and execution by the team, led by Foreman, who had his best game in a Penn uniform.

That being said, Princeton is undermanned and had one of its best players playing injured.

Wow... I rarely agree with P38, but I do here. Cannady has a good game and shoots 7-8, instead of 2-8, Penn might lose this game... From all appearances, Cannady was struggling with an injury. If we meet Princeton in the Ivy League tourney vs. a healthy Cannady, we could very likely see a different result....

You guys are smoking something. We have guys as hurt or more than Cannady. If he is out there, he is fine.

Princeton is a good team, we just present some matchup problems they likely don't have with other teams. I would be surprised if they don't go at least 5-3/6-2 the rest of the way and end up at the Palestra.

No we don't---look, when a guy is working the stationary bike on the sideline, he is not healthy. And he was not healthy---all of our Iron 6 were in great shape.

FWIW, he was doing that during the Brown game, too. You could clearly see he was gimpy at one point, whereupon he left the court to ride the bike.

He then proceeded to play inspirationally down the stretch--hitting some real tough bail out shots.

Maybe, but Cannady was doing the exact same thing with the bike against Brown, where he played all 45 minutes and scored 27. The night after playing 40+ and scoring 16 on Yale while doing the same with the bike. So i’m not sure he was doing anything different from what he usually does. But who knows?

This is simply not true.

Yes, AJ looked like his back was bothering him against Yale and in the first half against Princeton. And then the second half started and he didn’t look so gimpy anymore.
