The shot 

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:

Beating Harvard

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.

Two questions:
1) Is the guy allright? It looks like he got smushed afterwards
2) what's with the guy in the skin-tight orange luge suit? achh. I need mind-bleach.

A great win. I can hardly wait to see those orange plaid blazers on national TV

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?

Awesome. Tough shot, too. What's that guy's name?

GREAT GAME, congrats to the mighty TIGERS.

Well done...

Princeton Basketball returns to greatness, and provides another painful dose of humble pie to Harvard.
