I know that Dartmouth is now the enemy, but you'd think that Courtney Banghart would make a pledge for the Wielgus Lounge given that she was Banghart's coach and boss.

Maybe there was some hard feelings between the two when Banghart left for Princeton...

...that last post of yours was the marine equivalent of working a chum bucket from the bow of a sport fishing boat, but you do raise an interesting point...

I don't expect anyone here to have any insights.

But when the Mike Krzyzewskis of the world are honored, one would expect the Tommy Amakers of the world to contribute to the cause.

Oh well...

I would love to hear input as to who we here on the board think is the greatest Ivy women's BBall player of all time my vote is Gail Koziara before she became Boudreaux

Plus as a bonus who is the greatest male player I am going with the Big L Rudy Larusso

Dollar Bill vs Rudy or McMillian from Columbia pick one and state your case, don't forget to pick your women's choice as well. I think I can make a pretty fair argument that Dartmouth wins the combined

You need to remember Rudy LaRusso was first on the scene 5+ yrs before Bradley

I honestly doubt this bears extended discussion, but for simplicity let's fall back on the Ivy 50th voting: 1) Bradley 2) McMillian 3) Forte 4) Calhoun 5) La Russo. About right. I'd certainly prefer Rudy strongly to Chris Dudley.


The combined is silly.

it's an internet board with people using made up names

I ask you who do you think the top 5 ivy women of all time are

I still like Ruddy over Forte and Calhoun

Guy was rookie of the year and will do no worse than second team All-Ivy this year. Consistently draws double-teams. Should get more than one first team selection before he's done.

Pity he doesn't have more help...

But still curious as to why Banghart didn't throw a couple of bucks to the lounge.

Probably nobody knows except them, though.

Many people make significant donations anonymously all the time; is it a stretch to think Courtney might prefer that, for her own reasons?

If that were the case, why not also issue some sort of statement congratulating Wielgus on her accomplishments?

I think that it's more likely that Wielgus and Banghart had some sort of fallout. Who was at fault is anyone's guess.

And if I'm right, I sincerely hope that they bury the hatchet soon. They're both very important people in Ivy Basketball history.

Go Green, you are drawing a remarkable set of conclusions based upon your not finding one person's name on a list of donors, such lists which usually exclude individuals who want to maintain their anonymity for any number of reasons. You're not connecting "dots," but rather a single dot.

Your obsession with anything Princeton-related, even as it extends to criticizing a Dartmouth basketball great and former assistant coach, is amazing.

If one measure of the strength of any athletic program is its ability to inspire obsession in its rivals, the Princeton athletic department can be proud of what it has accomplished in Hanover, or at least in you. Any sports fan should be flattered if his or her alma mater could inspire such emotion on other campuses.

Banghart hasn't said a thing publicly about Wielgus.

But she's happy to praise her high school mentors for guiding the way for her:

And praising her assistant coaches:

And she's totally cool with others singing praises about her.

Player Views

"Playing for Coach Banghart has been one of the highlights of my Princeton career. She took a team that had never been to an NCAA tournament and has accomplished in the past nine years what many only dream of. She is one of the most positive influences I’ve been around, and the growth I’ve shown here over the past four years is a direct result of her ability to bring out the best in each of her players. She’s incredibly invested in each player, understands what each of us is finest at, and pushes us in ways you didn’t know existed in order to bring that out. The enthusiasm and competitiveness she brings every single day drives us all; she’s a competitor with a “just win” mentality, yet she’s full of life, energy, and a keen understanding of the game. She challenges us daily and demands excellence, yet at the same time she’s a teacher and an optimist, always seeing the bright side to situations. Her love for her players and her desire to see us succeed expands off the court, as she is and always will be one of our biggest supporters in anything we want to do. She will continue to be one of the most valuable mentors in my life, and I will be forever grateful to be able to call her my coach and forever thankful that she surrounded me with such incredible teammates and coaches that have shaped me into the person I am today." - Amanda Berntsen '16

"Coach Banghart is an inspiration. Her enthusiasm, fearlessness, and passion for the game is obvious to everyone around her. If a team plays to the personality of its leaders, this team is tenacious, competitive, supportive, smart, and always hungry for the best. Her teams do "impossible" things (a 30-0 season, the first at-large bid for an Ivy) because she has established a culture of excellence here. Four years under Coach Banghart's tutelage have made me a stronger, smarter, tougher, more skilled player; a better listener, communicator, and leader; and a wiser mentor, friend, and teammate to those around me. She is truly outstanding. And best of all, I'm confident that my relationship with Coach will continue long after I graduate: I will always be a part of this Tiger family she has created." - Alex Wheatley '16

"I have been so blessed to have Coach Banghart as my mentor and friend these past four years. Everything she does has our best interest in mind, always. She not only has dedicated herself to make me and my teammates the best versions of ourselves on the court, but takes the time to ensure we are our best off the court. She has created a culture of excellence, hard work and support that puts all of her players in a position to succeed. She pours her heart into what she does and brings her everything she has to each practice, meeting, game, you name it. The time, energy and enthusiasm she puts forward daily drives us to also give our all and push one another to greater heights. She is what makes this team strong and I will be forever grateful to her and this program for making my four years at Princeton so victorious and so special." - Annie Tarakchian '16

Maybe its all good. But you really don't think that her silence on Wielgus is speaking volumes?

This may surprise you, but some posters here do not have an opinion on how much Courtney Banghart has or has not said about Chris Wielgus. That's you, bro.

Obviously, the topic drew your attention.

As I said earlier, I'd expect people like JTII and Tommy Amaker to say something in tribute to their old coaches who also gave them their first coaching jobs when the mentors are being honored. Especially if those people have track records of dishing out hosannas to others.

When it doesn't happen, I can't help but wonder if there are reasons why. If there are hard feelings that exist between Wielgus and Banghart, I would consider that most unfortunate.

"Probably nobody knows except them"

Why let that basic truth get sublimated to wild, pointless, and possibly hurtful speculation?

A statement along the lines of "Hey Chris-- You did great and thanks for everything!"

?

to satisfy your incessant desire to tweak all things PU. Frankly your effort to put the onus on her to quell your intrusion into her life is completely out of line.
