Tigers have experienced problems in playing against Yale this season. Fortunately, they have the best player in the league who has stepped up when needed although only being a sophomore.

Right now, they are projected as a #12 seed playing Maryland in round 1. They still should make the tournament if they lose in IvyMadness. Tigers have some big time recruits coming in next year as well plus they have a big time coach. Go Tigers!

Alarie 17 pts - 17 rebounds - 3 blocks. She can play!

Hopefully, Mitch and crew are watching the women's final. Banghart knows how to push the buttons on the defensive end and keep the players focused. She always has the foot on the pedal with sometimes uneven results but the players play "hard".

Like the Penn's men team, Banghart has her players share the ball, i.e. star player Alarie has taken 2 shots and scored 3 points in the first half with 9 rebounds and 4 blocks --- unselfish star player who is a PG/PF at 6'4". Her dad, Mark, taught her well.

Foot remains on the pedal after 3 quarters but they need to come out strong at the beginning of the 4th as they are on the road.

Really? With an 80 point lead?

Emptied the bench -- good to see everyone get on the floor.

Now, let's see if they can repeat or do better than Blake's team a few years ago.

As long as Penn has not conceded the game, sure.

The way they were playing, the game was conceded before it began.

If you're up by, what, 30 points in the final quarter, and your opponents aren't getting anything done (and weren't for most of the game), enough already.

That coach has no class. Sorry to say it, but true.

I have no problem with Princeton continuing to play. We have a long history of epic comebacks between the teams, and this is a championship game.

Congrats to the Princeton women - they were just the better team this year. Look forward to continued battles in the future.

As you have pointed out, a coach simply does not take any chances even with a 28 pt lead entering the 4th quarter and Banghart did exactly the right thing by making sure that the Tiger players kept their intensity on defense and rebounding. She also decided to hold onto the ball and let the clock tick off which minimized the blowout as the Tigers scored only 8 points in the 4th quarter after average 19 pts thru the first 3 quarters. She tried to sub the bench in at the 2 minute mark but play continued on until an out of bounds play with 1 minute left.

Banghart has obviously been extremely successful and part of it is managing the game smartly. She obviously had the Tigers prepared to play from the opening whistle yesterday to take out the crowd and the homecourt.

There is a reason why the Tigers are projected as a #12 seed for the Tournament.

Finally, the players give her a huge thumbs up as to environment that she has built. Will she stay as she has and will get other opportunities. With Alarie at Princeton for two more years, she may well stay for at least 2 years.

She was carrying a two-year old boy during the post-game handshakes. Was that her kid? If she started a family in the past few years, I missed it.

Of all people, Penn fans should know that a big lead doesn't guarantee anything. 27 point comeback. I imagine she was trying to keep her team focused because the next game will require full effort. Plus as others have pointed out, PU only scored 8 points in the final Q and was taking the full 40 seconds off each possession. Sounds like easing up to me.

And if anyone would be spending time monitoring her personal life ......

If you are so curious, listen to Coach Banghart's Court Report each week on GoPrincetonTigers.com. Penn Nation should too. Not only is the coach a first class coach and person, that is also her son. Princeton is lucky to have her. My only regret is that she wasn't here as an undergrad. She grew up in New Hampshire.🐅

I know that she is a great person and human being. You only need to hear how players talk about her to understand what a special person that she is.

If she stays at Princeton, unlikely, whe will continue to dominant women's IL basketball as she has built the "franchise". It is doubtful as she will be moving on to a big time program and it would not be surprising if she dominates at the next level as well. She is simply that good.

I was aware that Banghart had received offers from bigger schools, but had assumed that she was remaining in Princeton for personal reasons.

However, I was not aware that she had started a family. There's no question that Princeton is a great area to raise children. So its probable that she could be at Princeton for a long while...

If you're up by 27 but with time still to play in the first half, there's still time for the other team to come back. :-(

If you're up by 27 with 5:21 to play, by 26 with 4:19 to play, by 27 with 3:40 to play (all of these instances are when Princeton shot FTs and could have made substitutions--but did not) and Penn itself only scored 7 points during that 4th quarter, I think it's beyond absurd and in very bad taste that you wait the final minute of the game before taking out your starters.

Her son also ambled back to her and threw a championship T-shirt into her face during the postgame ESPNU interview.
