The Daily Pennsylvanian doesn't like the scheduling.

Very cool. It will great to see the "boys".

Although Saturday's game is important, it is one of 14 games that will determine if a team qualifies for IvyMadness. It is somewhat more important as it is a home game but it is not the defining moment in the season -- win or lose.

If the Tigers lose which is certainly possible, they will need to regroup and get ready for the next game. Only one victory or only one loss.

As fans, I hope that we do not melt down similar to what is going with our friends south of Princeton.

Hopefully not a contingency we will face. I might melt down a bit if the Tigers play badly and get blown out, but my emergency core cooling system should kick in before any serious damage occurs.

If Max and Mike are not available, I don't think you'll need to worry about any blowouts. In fact, you'll probably have a good shot to win.

Looking at ESPN and Real Time RPI, it looks like a 50/50 game indeed. I suspect that the Tigers have gained some confidence and momentum off the ASU win but injuries will certainly have an impact. Finally, does Cannady's 3 pointers find the net. Should be fun.

I like the Tigers chances if they cut and pass the ball well on offense and play tough defense. If they revert to dribbling into trouble, throwing the ball away, and taking a lot of off-balance shots like they were doing in some of the earlier games, they will get hammered by a well-coached Penn team (even with their injuries). The Tigers also can’t be afraid to foul hard inside and force Penn to beat them at the line.

Looks like this could be the biggest crowd at Jadwin in a few years, although some of the sections may have been blacked out and reserved for students, few of whom may be back on campus in time for the game.

So, in other words, if they outPenn Penn in a style that Princeton used to own.

Yes, that is exactly what I've been thinking all season, TigerFan and pennnation. Penn has been getting the kind of big-man passing to cutters and spot-up shooters that we have always valued, swinging the ball and not over-dribbling. Also playing stingy, smart half-court D.

I watched Oklahoma go down at Kansas, and their isolation-heavy, no-motion offense hurt my eyes. And they have better one-on-one creators than the Tigers do. Princeton needs to move the ball and to move off the ball to at least get the help defense off balance before driving to the rim.

Sadly, the outcome will be determined by injury status of key players on both teams. If Wang and Max are anywhere close to 80-90% Penn should be a solid favorite. Tigers can get along without Myles if they get 20 rebounds and 29 points from the sophomores as happened in Tempe, but that's a long shot. I guess we can all hope for a cliffdweller, as Yogi said, that comes down to the last possession.

I do not. Just throwing a "worst case sceanario" out. Last word I got was "day to day" and that was Wed.

Coach commented that Jaelin was dissapointed in his performance after the ASU game. Henderson let him know that he made a signifcant by holding ASU's top scorer Dort, the #25 HS recurit in the country at 6'4", to six points, lowest total for the year -- Dort may well be a mid to late 1st round pick. Jaelin's defenese was not up to his athletic abilities in several earlier games. Both Llewellyn and Cannady need to play strong defense in tomorrow's game. I have some concern that Penn's guards can get to the rim if Jaelin and Devin do not play tough hard nosed basketball.

It would obviously be a bonus if Jaelin not only continues to find 3 pt shooters with open looks when he goes to the rim but he also finishes at a higher % at the rim. He obviously has God given ability to finish.

Pre-game, it is tough to decide if Cannady or Llewellyn win a dunk contest as they are way over the rim for their height.

As long as they avoid silly turnovers, keep the floor spaced a reasonable amount, and swing the ball once or twice, I'm not too worried about Princeton getting good shots against any Penn lineup. Assuming Woods guards Cannady, Llewelyn and/or Morales should have the edge when they drive. And if Wang has to guard Stephens, Much, or Derosier on the perimeter I feel good there, too.

The problem is on the other end. If Aririguzoh is the only big out there it'll be challenging to handle even two of Penn's bigs at once. And if Much and/or Desrosier is out there as well, they'll have to play the kind of physical defense (that Desrosier at least looks like he should be capable of) that they have not shown on a consistent basis. It would help if the Tigers applied some ball pressure and made passing to the Penn bigs difficult. And foul when necessary, although I have visions of the Quakers finding their touch at the free throw line just to spite us.

No surprise as to the spread. Henderson will probably use it as bulletin board material although there is obviously plenty of incentive to win this game. Cannady recently talked about the need to defend home court but the Tigers have done a lousy job to date -- FDU and St. Joe's but IL play is always different.

I remember watching how Weisz handled the guys pre-game and it was impressive. Let's see if Cannady and/or Stephens step up. Henderson is leaning on Cannday.

University ticket office just opened the upper balcony bleacher seats up to online sales for tomorrow’s game. Don’t remember that section being open for seating in quite a while—game against the sweet sixteen Cornell team, perhaps?

Good thing I got tickets in advance then--with the rain coming tomorrow, visibility from the stratosphere will be terrible.
