Reports of Princeton's demise were apparently premature.

Princeton did have some issues playing without Cannady and Lewellyn early on. Then Stephens got hurt.

Princeton affirmed what I thought of them a week ago. They have 7 guys who can play with anyone in the league. Cannady and Stephens are really good. Much, Morales and DeRosiers are excellent role players and Llewelyn is a work in progress. RA at the 5 is the secret sauce on offense, with his inside game although he is not great defensively. He and Stephens killed Penn on the offensive boards. That (and the inability to make good shots) did Penn in. Give Henderson much credit for a defensive scheme that really messed up Penn’s motion stuff. I have not seen Brown or Harvard this year, but Yale will give the Tigers more trouble than Penn did.

What are the odds that by the open of weekend play favorites Penn, Yale and Harvard will be winless and tied for last? We're halfway there.

The Penn and Harvard losses make the upcoming Yale-Brown games next week and the week after so intriguing. By Pomeroy Brown should definitely be in the thick of it for a playoff spot; if they win at least one of these next two it could turn into a free-for-all for the four spots at Payne-Whitney.

Most teams could still be 1-1 after the head to head games other than obviously Penn. If either Yale or Brown are 2-0 after their head to head, watch out for that team.

Three games -- three upsets based on the predictions. I sometimes wonder if the analytics are lagging vs. leading indicators. The pt spreads today for both games seemed excesssive based on how these teams have been recently played based on eyes versus the numbers. The total point prediction for the Palestra game appeared to be grossly excessive based on the game at Jadwin and how hard and well both teams played defense.
