Late action seems to have pushed the O/U higher and made Penn the favorite again. Seems absurd from a matchup perspective, but I'll defer to the experts...

Somewhat comforting that folks saw the same value in the Columbia ML that I did...

Because I am a coward, and because Cambridge is tremendously streaky and can get very hot, I didn’t want to respond to this until after last night’s game . . .. But this is now 11 straight Ivy games where Cambridge has failed to shoot better than 43% from the field. Only twice in those 11 games has he even made more than 33% (and both of those were last year). Could just be a slump/psychological, but familiarity may be key too — he shot at least 38% in his first game against every Ivy team last year, and he got worse the second time around against 6 of 7 teams, and the only exception was the back to back at the start with Yale his freshman year.

I can say that now, and hopefully he’ll now prove me totally wrong against Princeton, Yale, and Harvard, and any karma impacts will be gone by the time Penn plays Brown at the Palestra.

Last night Cambridge was hitting circus shots again, but Woods kept him from stealing the game with them.

He missed a lot of them too. He got his points, unlike the first few Ivy games, but it wasn’t a real efficient 21. He hit 3s at a high enough clip to make it ok, but he was 7 for 21 overall.

Well, he did a lot better than he had been for a while and Woods (and Devon at times) had a LOT to do with his lack of efficiency. Plus he was forcing shots in the last 3 minutes.
