Live from Jadwin Gymnasium

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:45 pm

No post game analysis from your boy after this one. I’m getting my butt up to Dillon for the fifth set of Princeton-Penn State

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:45 pm

Game over!!!! 57-46 Princeton

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:44 pm

Weisz with the block on d. Princeton can eat up more clock here as this one’s over

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:43 pm

57-46 Princeton after Yale free throws. A minute left in the half and we’ve got a timeout

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:41 pm

First rims out

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:41 pm

Yale playing aggressive d. Too aggressive, in fact, as they foul Bray. He’ll have a chance to reach 20

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:41 pm

Sears is fuming out on the court as he sees his team’s postseason chances slip away

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:40 pm

Yale must have 15 fouls this half

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:39 pm

Weisz hits his first free throw

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:39 pm

Sears playing recklessly, nearly throws it out of bounds. Elis turn it over right after

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:39 pm

Make it 54-42 after Brase splits a pair

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:33 pm

Bray hits a lengthy three at the buzzer! 52-39 Princeton

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:30 pm

Barrett splits the pair

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:30 pm

Another Yale foul and Princeton is in the double bonus. Bulldogs visibly frustrated

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:30 pm

Miller with a great offensive rebound off the missed free throw from Sherburne

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:29 pm

Cotton drives but misses what should have been an easy layup. Story of the game for the Bulldogs

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:28 pm

Duren brings it down to 9 with a jumper

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:28 pm

And the second. 11 point lead (the same as Princeton’s halftime lead the first time these teams met)

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:27 pm

Brase nails the first

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:27 pm

Yale misses a free throw and the rebound gets heated. Bulldogs commit the foul, as Dallier has to be held back by his teammates

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:27 pm

10 point Princeton lead as they have at last played well out of the half. If they just solved that problem in every game, they’d win almost all their games games

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:25 pm

He didn’t score at all against Harvard and hadn’t scored until that three in this one

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:25 pm

While Barrett knocks down a three, breaking his long scoring drought

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:24 pm

Cotton of Yale is holding his shoe!!!!

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:24 pm

Barrett got a block, but Yale will retain possession

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:23 pm

43-36 Princeton, 6:45 to play

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:23 pm

“Your season’s over Yale!” shouts a Princeton fan. Let’s hope

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:23 pm

Bray looked like he wanted the dunk. Got the layup and foul

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:22 pm

Princeton up 40-36 here

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:22 pm

Timeout. In other news, Princeton men’s volleyball leads Penn State two sets to one!!! They haven’t beaten this team in two decades or something

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:19 pm

Princeton defensive rebound after Brase made both

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:18 pm

Brase nearly got the dunk, will have to settle for a couple foul shots

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:17 pm

12 turnovers haven’t helped them either. We’re back in action now

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:17 pm

Rebounding margin widening in Yale’s favor, but they just haven’t been able to get the ball in the hoop despite taking nearly all their shots inside

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:15 pm

Brase rebounds a miss that rolled off the rim. Princeton timeout with 9 to play

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:15 pm

Yale does tie it at 36, though

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:14 pm

Teams trading misses, both shooting around 33% this half

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:14 pm

Hazel with the Tiger rebound

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:14 pm

Bray misses an open three. He’s still got 12

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:13 pm

Princeton with a hard fought defensive series

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:13 pm

Weisz with one of his trademark reverse layups

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:13 pm

Princeton ball after the timeout

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:10 pm

Clay lets loose a loooong three, but it wont go

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:08 pm

Sherburne loses his handle on the break

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:08 pm

Tigers commit a backcourt violation, after some good hustle from Barrett

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:07 pm

Sherburne fouled on offense

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:06 pm

Pritchard hits a 3. Yale ties it at 34 with 14 to play

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:06 pm

Two missed shots later the possession ends unsuccessfully. Now they’ve got it right back

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:05 pm

Make it three. Long Yale possession

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:04 pm

Two straight Princeton fouls

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:04 pm

Great d by the Tigers, forcing the jump ball on an attempted Yale shot. Possession arrow favors Princeton

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:03 pm

Wilson’s three hits the front rim. Bulldog ball

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:00 pm

Yale with the offensive foul. 34-30 Princeton and we’ve got a timeout

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:00 pm

Sherburne with the flailing bucket. He’s upped his game the last couple weeks or so

Eddie Owens February 28, 20148:00 pm

Yale walks, as they’ve done several times already. Almost double digit TOs

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:59 pm

Cook blocked down low

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:59 pm

Sherburne comes down with the long defensive rebound

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:59 pm

Gets it to go and he’s got 11

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:58 pm

Bray with another layup and he’ll get a chance at the old fashioned three point play

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:58 pm

Sears is over 20 with his jumper

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:58 pm

Bray responds. Surviving the first 5-10 minutes out of the half is critical

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:57 pm

Yale opens the scoring in the second half. 28-27

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:57 pm

Men’s volleyball tied 1-1 against Penn State at Dillon. I suspect the student presence there might be better than it is down here

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:56 pm

We’re back on at Jadwin

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:55 pm

However, 3rd place is actually possible if Princeton wins out and Columbia/Brown falter. Columbia up 3 hosting Dartmouth at the half there

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:55 pm

So these Tigers could still theoretically reach 2nd in the league, although it’s quite literally a one in a million chance. Pretty much every game played in the league would have to go a specific way for that to happen

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:52 pm

Sears with 19 and 4 rebounds on 7-9 shooting. Weisz has 8, as he continues to play well. Brase 7 and 4 rebs, Bray with 7

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:52 pm

Vintage at least, from earlier this year when they chucked em up with reckless abandon. Shooting woes are a somewhat more recent phenomenon

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:51 pm

Princeton 5-17 from distance (29.4%). Vintage Tigers

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:51 pm

So back to the real game at hand: Princeton shot 9-26 (34.6%), Yale 9-22 (40.9%). 17-14 rebounding for Yale, though that’s to be expected. 8-5 turnovers in Princeton’s advantage

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:49 pm

Light blue wins 8-6 or something

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:48 pm

These last seconds are being counted down hilariously slowly

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:47 pm

Light blue just had 10 kids on offense

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:44 pm

We’re seeing more efficient offense in this game than in the college contest

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:44 pm

#23 for the blue and yellow puts it up like MJ

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:43 pm

The game has really devolved without him on the court

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:42 pm

Seriously though this kid has some court vision

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:41 pm

#5 for the light blue is 2-2 with a steal already. Kid better come to Princeton

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:41 pm

They’ve got fourth graders playing on the court right now. How they put the ball in the hoop I do not know

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:39 pm

Halftime score: 27-26 Princeton

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:39 pm

Duren hits both ends of his one and one

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:38 pm

Bray’s corner three won’t go. Been 27-24 for a solid two minutes now. 30 seconds left

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:37 pm

Yale has had a couple baskets called back for fouls. Another one just happened

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:36 pm

Brase with the foul as the shot clock runs out for Princeton

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:35 pm

Princeton women up 40-22 at Yale at the half.

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:35 pm

Princeton timeout after that odd couple of possessions

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:34 pm

Another Tiger turnover. And another Yale turnover

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:34 pm

Weisz commits the turnover but Yale can’t convert it into points

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:33 pm

T.J. Bray for threeee. 27-24 Princeton

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:32 pm

With respect to his athleticism.

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:31 pm

I’m not sure the league has ever quite seen a player like Sears

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:31 pm

Sears called for the travel. A rare error. He wanted a baseline jam

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:30 pm

Brase pump fakes, gets the defender to jump, and goes up for the easy layin. Good play

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:30 pm

He gets it back at the other end

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:29 pm

Princeton ball after Sherrod commits a player control foul

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:28 pm

Sears with 18 already! Making a serious case for player of the year as if he hadn’t already

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:27 pm

Sears rebounds, his fourth. And gets the basket and foul call on the other end

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:27 pm

travel called on Yale. 22-21 Princeton, five minutes remain

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:26 pm

Weisz hits the three to stop the 6-0 Yale run

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:26 pm

Both are good and he’s already above his scoring average

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:25 pm

Yale forcing it to Sears on every possession. Here he’s fouled under the hoop

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:25 pm

Pete Miller with some good moves inside but can’t convert

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:24 pm

Townsend drives for the Bulldogs but is rejected. Princeton ball

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:23 pm

10-9 Princeton in rebounds.

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:23 pm

Yale 8-15, Princeton 6-16, but with 3 threes and four foul shots

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:22 pm

Timeout with 7:14 to play. 19 all

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:21 pm

Sears is most athletic player in the conference

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:21 pm

Sears just faked the huge one handed slam but opted for the layup. It still went in to tie the game.

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:20 pm

Sears again! He’s got 12

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:20 pm

Brase makes a tough shot with some contact

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:20 pm

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:17 pm

Weisz makes both

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:17 pm

Hazel forces the turnover and Weisz will take two shots at the other end

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:16 pm

Salafia makes it a two point deficit for Yale

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:16 pm

Weisz converts the three. Princeton heating up…

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:15 pm

And stout defense by the German gives em the ball right back

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:15 pm

A Brase three gives Princeton its first lead

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:14 pm

Both kids put their heads through an armhole. lol

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:13 pm

Timeout. The classic dressing up as a Princeton player game

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:13 pm

Sherburne tosses the ball away but fights like an animal to get it back. That’s a senior in one of his last games.

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:12 pm

Princeton retains the ball

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:12 pm

Wilson’s three just barely rims out. I think he’s feeling it tonight

Nick Victor (great name) makes it 8-4. 13:50 left

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:07 pm

Princeton can’t score off the turnover. Still 6-4 Yale in what’s turning into another defensive battle

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:07 pm

Yale leads the Ivies in rebounding and have made their mark with physical inside play

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:06 pm

Duren of Yale rebounds a missed three from Bray

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:05 pm

Yale eats up the clock and can’t convert… but Cook can’t handle a pass and it’s Bulldog ball

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:05 pm

Just had a block on defense too.

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:04 pm

The freshman Cook with a great rebound and put back in the air

Yale already pressing on d

Eddie Owens February 28, 20147:03 pm

Tonight is a must win for Yale if they want to stay in the race for the league title. It’s already down to them and Harvard

Princeton (15-8 overall, 3-6 Ivy League) vs. Yale (14-10, 8-2)
