Tomorrow, Yale goes to the frozen North to play the utterly hapless Big Green. You'd like to think Yale will take care of business here, but you should never assume anything about a road game.

Dartmouth is completely and utterly dead in the water this year for some reason. Always good to get a road win, but there's not a lot to be gleaned from this. If Yale can beat Harvard in Lavietes this Saturday, that'll be three road wins in the bank, plus it'll set them up to be in first place when the Ps come to town. Should be some good basketball in the next few weeks.

Random side note: I've seen two Princeton fans in the last two days hoping out loud for a Danny Wolf injury. I myself would not do such things, but I understand their concern.

(For the record, I think Princeton is very likely to guard Danny with Pierce. Shades of what Kansas did, though Pierce is no KJ Adams, plus Martini is too slow-footed to guard him on the perimeter. It's a risk putting Martini on Matt Knowling, but Knowling isn't a shooter, so you might risk it for a bit knowing you'll give up a bunch of mid-range floaters and hoping you can live with it. God help the Tigers if Pierce gets into foul trouble, though.)

I think Princeton will reverse your suggestion.
Pierce will be closer to the boards on Knowling.
We will need some quality minutes from Huggins
and maybe others.

Yale's talent and size will be issues, but Princeton seems able
to find ways to win. Should be some great games.
Hope everyone stays healthy (wish we could get Austin back).

Not cool to hope for an opponent to get hurt. But I question the report in view of the poor phrasing. Henderson does some unexpected things on defense. Last season Poulikidas was unstoppable in the 2 regular season games. In the tourney he assigned Tosan to him.
Tigers can't look too far down the road though, not with a collision in Ithaca looming. These games are Street fights

agree that Cornell's depth and pace of play makes next game very tough. We need to handle the pressure and get good shots.

I agree completely. This is in very poor taste and classless.

Harvard is an interesting one. Obviously Malik Mack is a star in the making and Okpara and Ajogbor are loads down low. But Danny Wolf being a perimeter threat makes things interesting on offense, because Ajogbor will need to come out to defend him. Plus it's a rivalry game, which you can't ever discount.

this. i fear harvards top shelf talent in a rivalry road setting.

also a healthier h with a very good freshman pg who appears afraid of little of anything is dangerous.
good news is bez and mack are both from the dmv and this rivalry will be something
