Two horrendous calls against Myles puts him on the bench less than ten minutes in. That really hurts.

Yale is awfully good and we’re just not getting any bounces—or calls. Down 8 at the under 8 minute time out.

Once Stevens was called for 2nd phantom foul and Yale started doubling on RA, the Tigers just had no offensive options.

Tigers give up 46 points, 61% shooting in what may be their worst defensive half of the year. Yale has some great offensive weapons but the two BS calls on Myles just killed us.

Defensively too many easy drives to the lane. Maybe mixin a zone?

If we lose, I don't blame this team.

What I will say though is that the blame for the back half of the season is on Devin Cannady.

I can't get over how disappointed I am in him and how he put this team into the situation they are in.

Agreed. Mitch has to try something different if he wants to take a run at this game in the 2nd half.

I don’t want to minimize the effect of not having Cannady on this team but I’m not sure it would make a difference in the outcome. They lost to Harvard and Yale with Cannady too.

Tigers come out scrapping on defense, firing on offense. 12 point lead down to 1 at the under 16. Proud of these guys for how they’ve showed up to play in the 2nd half.

Complete collapse by the Tihgers. Seven point lead to 2 point defecit. Gotta score the ball.

Why are they not shutting off Copeland and fouling someone else?

Schwieger proved to be the bigger loss.

Pleasantly surprised by the Tigers’ fight today. They could have just given up in the second half but they came storming back and took a 7 point lead with 5 to play. Yale just had too much firepower once Myles fouled out. Great to see RA come up so big in this game and to see the freshman and sophomores play with so much poise. Princeton should be very competitive next year. Go Tigers!

Although Cannady might have done a better job keeping Oni in front of him.

Let me echo that. Showed remarkable heart without two key players and was in position to win until Stephens fouled out. Just too much to ask after that.

So proud of the guys' effort -- they were the better team today but Yale-friendly refs put Stephens in foul trouble early. Then they had the gall to turn a Oni pushoff into Myles' 5th. That changed the game completely and handed Yale the win on a rusty silver platter.

This is definitely a tainted win for the Bulldogs. They were done for until that 5th foul -- pretty disgusting display by the refs. 5pt lead into a 6pt loss just like that.

That said, I'd be lying if I said we had a better chance of pulling a NCAA upset. I just wish officials had let the players decide the game instead of determining the winner beforehand.

My story for PAW:
https://paw.princeton.edu/article/mens-basketba lls...

Such a bummer for Stephens, at least three of his five fouls were really iffy, and that totally changed the game. (Oni had 10 points in ~27 minutes with Stephens playing, 13 in ~9 without him.)

But glad we got to see that second half at least. I always thought this team had a gear like that inside it somewhere.
