#12 seed in Kansas City against Big Ten University of Maryland. I believe the same team that Blake's team lost to in round #2.

It will be a big challenge as Maryland has been a perennial power. The challenge will be that Robinson will not be able to bull her way to the hoop like she can against the Ivies.

A real challenge, but Maryland stumbled late season. They lost 3 in a row and failed to win the regular season and, for the first time in 3 years, the Big 10 tournament.

On the Tigers website, Coach Banghart is interviewed as to receiving the #12 seed. She gave some usual coach talk but you could tell that she was pleased with the seed and the location. NCAAW tournament site rules based on seeding is rather funky.

She also talked a little bit of how important that it was for her team to win last weekend at the Palestra.

Other than Alarie, the Maryland team will probably have more physical skills so Banghart is going to have to coach her team up. After her first two years at Princetion, she has a 209-55 record including non-conference/IL and 112-14 IL.

Tigers are given only a 18% chance to beat Maryland which is not very high for a 12th seed. Maryland has a reputation plus they beat Rutgers twice handily and the Tigers were whipped by Rutgers in Decembeer.

Let's see if the Tigers can keep their composure and stay in the game and try to steal it at the end. Alarie is going to have to stay out of foul trouble and 3s' need to drop.

Banghart's crew shoots FT at 75% and 78% in league play. The rebound, assist, block and turnover numbers are so significantly better than the opposition for league and non-league play. 3 pt shooting 34% is good but not great. Perhaps, the women can go over and teach the Tiger men how to shoot FTs other than Cannady.

Problem is that the stats of Maryland are as impressive against far better competition. They have no one quite as tall as Alarie but they have good overall team height and a lot of athleticism.

Possible to steal one but the Tigers will have to play their very best team ball. They are a team as represented by the fact that only one player is in the top ten of IL scorers - Alarie at #10 - even with the huge point differential vs. the opposition.

The Princeton-Maryland game looks pretty similar to the American-UCLA matchup for Saturday.

Hopefully the Ivy and Patriot reps can perform well!

True to form, they focus exclusively on players with connections to the state.

Interesting 15 minute clip on goprincetontigers website with Coach Banghart talking about last weekend, her thoughts regarding IvyMadness tournament site and more importantly upcoming game with Maryland.

Good news is that Maryland does not have dominant inside prescience and they have a young team. Alarie will be the tallest player on the court but Terrapins are quick and fast and apply ball pressure.

Stated goal by Banghart is to win two games. Play without fear and go for the gusto.

Would be awesome if that happened!

Would also shut down a lot of talk about changing IvyMadness. Imagine if in just year two of IvyMadness we got a team in the Sweet Sixteen!!

Preview from the Daily Princetonian:

and the Maryland Diamondback:

The NCAA website lists the game as 12:00 pm, but the above articles and the Princeton women's basketball schedule lists the game as 12:30 pm.

The game can be watched live on ESPN2 or steamed at WatchESPN, http://www.espn.com/watch/search/Princeto n
Live stats can be found at this link, https://www.ncaa.com/game/basketball-women /d1/2018...

Maryland likes to push the pace and put up lots of points. While the Tigers can certainly stay with them, it will be better if they can avoid a track meet and make it more of physical low scoring game. If Princeton can exert control, especially down low, and get decent three point shooting, they have a good shot at defeating Maryland on a neutral court.

Good luck!

Good point regarding pace of play as the Tigers do not want a track meet. It semms like the only way that the Ivies, men or women, can win is by playing at a controlled pace that keeps them in the game for a steal at the end of the game.

Yesterday, the TV on line reporter said that Coach Self urged his team to pick up the tempo and get the game speeded up. I though that Penn was playing a little too fast after building up a 10 pt lead. Big time conferences simply have more athletic players and pace is essential but it is tough when the other team gets some turnovers and picks up the pace -- especially when Kansas was essentially playing in from of a home court crowd.

Too many bad passes and poor ball handling. We look nervous.

Very slow start. Marylkand pressure is killing them -- nothing like the Tigers have seen this year. Looks like it is going to be a very challenging game.

Actually outshooting them overall - but a lot fewer shots.

Down only 31-26 at the half.

They are having a tough time on the inside, but started to improve as the half wound down. Alarie finally got on the board and got 6 points in the last few minutes.

The Tigers are shooting 7-15 from two, but only 3-12 from three and 3-6 from the FT line.

The Terrapins are 7-20 from two and 3-8 from three, but 8-9 from the FT line.

Big plus for Maryland is on the boards, where they are + 11. They have 24 boards (9 offensive, 15 defensive) and Princeton has 13 (3 offensive, 15 defensive).

Meyers, Weledji and Jordan have 2 fouls each. For Maryland, Jones and Lewis have two fouls.

Very fortunate that they did not lose their composure as it could have been a blow out. Coach needs to make some adjustments during half time. Alarie and Littlefield looked intimidated in the first quarter but starting to get it together. Somehow, need to keep it a 5 to 6 pt game going into the 4th quarter and then hit some shots.

Whether it is the men or women, athleticism is just different between the Ivies and big time programs. Let's hope that Llewellen has that upper end of athletic ability for the men -- he might.

The underdog in the other women's games are getting blown out.

I imagine they are having to work so hard they are tired by the time they actually try to shoot.
