For those of you who missed yesterday's spectacular playoff between Princeton and Harvard -- co-champions of the Ivy League in men's basketball this year -- for the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, here is how it ended:
A nice still, courtesy of the New York Times:
Harvard has an excellent team and played a decent schedule, so it is not inconceivable that it may get an unprecedented second Ivy League tournament berth. The odds are not high, but there will certainly be worse teams that do get in.
I think basketball is a dumb game and don't, therefore, know much about it. Lately, while clicking through the channels, I have stopped to watch a little college b'ball and have a few questions.
How come most college teams on TV recently, consistently meet their diversity objectives and always play five African American scholars while a very few schools are allowed to get away with playing one, two or, even,three white players. Do they have a legit waiver to their diversity plan to avoid hiring minority scholars? Where do they hire all these tall black guys?
