Wow I completely omitted any individual performances. Mitola leads Dartmouth with 6, McDonnell has 6 rebs for them

Eddie Owens February 21, 20147:52 pm

But I’ve gotta give the Tigers credit for building a 12 point lead. It usually takes an unsustainably good shooting performance for them to be up double digits. Their defense is completely different than it was a few weeks back

Eddie Owens February 21, 20147:50 pm

Eddie Owens February 21, 20147:32 pm

The official finds a wet spot in front of the Tiger bench and Weisz dries it up for him with his sweats. That’ll pay off down the stretch hopefully

Eddie Owens February 21, 20147:31 pm

Rebounding and turnover gaps narrowing. Princeton shooting 25%, Dartmouth 31.8%

Eddie Owens February 21, 20147:31 pm
