In reply to: John Harvard 's message, "Re: Bad Decisions on The Final Sequence" on 12:01:58 02/11/17 Sat

That is a very plausible explanation for not using Zena on the Stephens foul shot.

It's a reasonable consideration and you must be correct because it's the only rationale which makes sense. Nevertheless, I still disagree with Amaker's decision because there were only six seconds left. If a rebound is available after a miss, there will only be three or four seconds left after the inevitable scrum.

With that little time left, I would place such a high priority on getting the rebound that I would be willing to tolerate giving the Tigers a final chance with two or three seconds left after Zena misses his free throw. Ironically, it's almost preferable to make Princeton go the length of the court after a defensive rebound on their own end than to let the Tigers inbound the ball with a set play. Harvard might actually prefer to have Zena miss, giving Princeton the rebound down one than have, say, Johnson make two but give Princeton a set play with three seconds left.

Either way, I think you are correct John Harvard. That must have been Amaker's thought process. Although by the same reasoning, Lewis is a huge liability out there as well. He had just clanked two free throw attempts a couple of possessions ago.

Your analysis is sound. Interesting that Amaker left Zena in against Yale last night in a 4 point game. Apparently Coach Jones was screaming for his guys to foul Z.

Really too bad Harvard gave that win away. Would have made it quite a race for #1 seed. Not really a big deal though. Gotta win 2 games at the Palestra no matter what and top seed could still draw Penn "at home."

The intelligence community has cleared us of any seditious communications with the Russians or the NCAA.

In some cases there was already a surfeit of valuable blackmail material.

An interesting concept. Particularly regarding Ivy football.
