Bottom line is that these are two very talented teams that know how to win, as is Cornell, and the margin for error among these squads is small (the Tigers’ trainwreck in Ithaca notwithstanding).

Princeton fans can come up with game scenarios that favor their team as can the Yale and Big Red faithful. After seeing Princeton lose twice it is hard to be “comfortable” with their chances if they face one or both of these teams in the ILT. But if they play with the defensive intensity they brought against Yale in Jadwin last night they will be tough to beat. And win or lose, these are fun battles to watch and Ivy Madness should be epic this year.

agree. i anticipate a bumpy road until health. and that'll make the seeding tougher.

but i feel good abt a healthy yale if/when that happens against these guys for all the reasons i broke down above.

princeton doubled quicker and got under his chin. very physical.
but danny played poorly on offense and let the refs get in his head.

but matt has become adept at finding space inside/midrange which alleviates pressure on wolf by creating more outlets for the double.

just a big loss and we dont beat cornell at home without knowling even when wolf/knowling were playing well.

so it wont get easier.

One can make good cases for both teams. It’s a tossup IMHO. Whoever is hot that day and, sadly, is first to figure out how the officials are calling the game.
