Princeton and Penn basketball teams all play at the Palestra this weekend, men Friday night, women Saturday. According to Sagarin, both Tiger teams #1 in the Ivies, Quakers #2. Penn probably a slight favorite in men’s game, Princeton the same in the women’s. Great kickoff to the league schedule.

One weird sidelight: with all the slavish stupidity the league has gone through to play the Ivy tourney games together at the Palestra again, when given the option, the two schools chose to split these games up.

I wonder what is the rationale for NOT playing a double-header. I would have guessed that the men would be indifferent, but the women would be in favor of it, just so that their game could benefit from fans arriving early for or staying late after the men's game. That seems like a no-brainer.

Well, for starters, the men’s game is televised, so women would have had to play at 4PM Friday, which would not have drawn flies....
