For the 2nd straight year, Bella Alarie has been named to the 20 person watch list for the McClain Award, which goes to the nation's top power forward.

https://goprincetontigers .com/news/2018/10/24/wome...

In mid-February, the list will be cut down to 10 and then it will go to 5 in March.

Alarie got some support from Carly Grenfell of High Post Hoops.

- Princeton’s Bella Alarie is another one with many ‘first team’ descriptions attached to her name. The junior is a two-time First Team All-Ivy League selection, was tabbed the 2017-18 Ivy League Player of the Year as a sophomore and earned Rookie of the Year honors as a freshman. Standing at 6’4″, Alarie averaged nearly a double-double at 12.4 points her game and 9.4 rebounds last season. The 283 rebounds she pulled down in the 2017-18 campaign rank third most in a single-season in Princeton history. -

Abby Meyers is not listed on the Princeton roster. Does anyone know what the story is?

That's interesting.

She does not appear on the school's directory. It is possible that she has left the school, as well as the team.

If she's no longer with the team, that's a big loss for the Tigers.

The Trentonian reports Alarie will be missing the first part of the season due to a broken right arm she suffered in practice a few weeks ago.

Also, Meyers is having to leave for the year due to a problem with a class from last year.

- Sophomore Abby Meyers had what Banghart termed a "misunderstanding" in her computer science course that violated university policy and will have to take a separation year. -

Thank goodness -- Alarie is starting tonight. Hopefully, Llewellyn is playing tomorrow. Alarie is so good that she changes the make up of the team. Quinnipac is good and has played inghe NCAA tournmament for several consecutive years.

Although rusty and against a good opponent, Alarie finished with 16 points, 19 rebounds, 2 - blocks, steals, assists. Is she free to play at MSG tomorrow as fifth starter?

Sure is something to shoot 14-52 and win by double digits.

Can Banghart loan Alarie to Mitch for a couple of games?

I'd like to see Banghart and Mitch switch teams.

Since her return from injury, Bella is now 3 for 3 as to Player of the Week award after winning 6 times last year. She is a significantly better player than last year when she was POY as a sophomore. Averaging 20/10 with 5 blocks per game and 3 assists. Dominant and special player.

Tigers return a starter and top reserve who have been out with injuries other than playing one game.

Unfortunate that they did not have all hands on deck when playing top 25 teams earlier in the year but Harvard men knows what it feels like regarding injuries.

Could be legitimate top 25 team next year.

After 3 quarters at Columbia, Alarie has 39 points, 12 rebounds and 3 blocks.

The announcer just said that the 39 points is a single game record for Princeton.

She is 18-26. The rest of the team is 7-27.

Princeton is ahead 63-50 after they were up by only 1 or 2 midway through the quarter.

Just broke IL record with 45 points. Tigers did not play very good with the obvious exception of Bella and Littlefield.

Bella will be crazy good for the remainder of her Tiger career.

A really amazing performance. The former record of 43 was held by Dartmouth's Gail Koziara (Boudreaux).

So.....Alarie will have a son who plays basketball at Princeton, then leaves early to play for a school whose president is a Dartmouth grad.

45 points on 20-28 shooting with 14 rebounds and 4 blocks -- Bill Bradley type of performance. She is a total team player as well. probable 3x IL POY.

Tigers up by 26 after 3 quarters 59-33. Allarie line 21 pts, 10 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks after 3 quarters -- off night after last night?

Bella was named to the top 5 starting team NATIONALLY for the past week as well as the USBWA Player of the week which are prestigious awards. She accomplished a Bill Bradley like performance. Other than Bradley, she is the only Tiger that has scored over 40 points in a game.

For the weekend, she averaged 33 points, 12 rebounds, 3.5 blocks, and 3 assists while playing only 27 minutes in the blow out at Cornell.

It would not be surprising as she continues to rise as she is post-injury. Special player that will get serious attention as a senior next year with the supporting cast around her. May turn out to be the 2nd best all time Tiger BB player at the end of the day.

Brad:

I can deal with you taking his name; but don't compare any NCAA player of today to the kid from Missouri. Why not just write that she reminds you in a favorable way of her father, Mark?

I don't think he's comparing her to Bill Bradley, just that her accomplishments are at a Bradley like level. The consensus seems to be that the player to compare her with is Elena Della Donne(sp?).

Yes, Delle Donne is the spelling, and you offer a most apt comparison.
I remember Sparky Anderson, managing the world champion Cincinnati Reds in 1976 to a sweep against my NYY, and telling the press after the final game that he wouldn't embarrass any man by comparing him to the Reds generational catcher at the time- John Bench. That's how it was with Johnny Bench, one of the five greatest
catchers in MLB history; and that's how it was with Bill Bradley, one of the five greatest NCAA men's basketball players, ever- FACT, and nobody knows that better than Bradley, the writer; one of our smartest
regular contributors (smart enough, in fact, to ignore me quite well!)
