Hope the Tigers can stay in Dr. Jekyll mode for one more game. Would love to see Amir have a chance to keep playing.

They are playing better than the seven game losing streak but I am not sure if they are playing good. Competition has not been very good in the last two games. Yale has a good offense and it will come down to Princeton's defense in all likelihood -- not sure if they can get it done plus Columbia may play competitively this evening.

Hard to believe that the Tigers are not already in IvyMadness considering a down year for the league. 20 pt lead at Cornell with 8 minutes to go, Brown and Harvard game -- all kinds of opportunities but it is the Ivy League.

Would be nice for Bell as you said as it would soften the blow.

I guess this is what the 4-team tournament is all about.

Takes two games with no impact on the top spot and turns them into do or die.

Followed by triumphant chants of "We're Number Four!"

I’m having wicked fantasies of victorious rematches with H and P and the gnashing of teeth and rending of garments that would ensue.

There would be more than 1 jumper off the South Street bridge, for sure.

League would be better if Brodeur, Guillen Smith, Mason, Bruner and Aiken were playing. Dartmouth would be in race for tournament and likely Yale would be winning league, chased by Harvard.

Gap between top 3 and rest of league could be greater than it is though.

True but even then there might not be any outstanding team other than possibly Yale with Mason and Bruner. Good but not great top end teams.

Yes, Yale would be a big favorite in my estimation

Thems the breaks. It is not as if no one stepped forward and played very well in their absence. Like Harvard, we saw that Yale is very deep.

Harvard's giving us a chance, but our guys don't seem to want it -- what else is new?

Yale has absolutely nothing to gain by winning this and they're still playing harder and more focused than our guys.

Make some free throws, let them know Harvard is up 23 with 5 min to go - this is there for the taking.

Our guys still don't care. No urgency. No toughness. Yale is playing harder in a meaningless game for them.

They're just stepping on our throats for kicks.

Spoke too soon. They can't play hard for more than 2m at a time.

Pathetic end to a pathetic season.

The team just didn't want to play hard for 40m a night. Or even 20m. They need to do some serious soul-searching over the summer. This season was a major embarrassment for the program.

Congrats to Brian Earl. Wish we had a coach like him. The guy we have now just isn't cutting it.

the idea that the kids didn't want to play hard is one of the most pathetic, asinine comments this board has ever run into. Ease up on those internet muscles, bro.

Ah yes Gokinsmen. When it's good, it's the best, when it's bad, it's the worst. He's our probably our worst fan on these boards. Should ship him off to the Penn boards.
