We are what our record says we are. Period. All the comments about how good we are despite the record and how close we were in this game or that, make us look like a bunch of snowflakes.

In reality, we are in the cellar and we have lost 9 straight. We are 3-15 vs. D1 teams, and all the Ws are against teams ranked well below 300.

The musings about how close we are or how good we will be in the future only serve to lower the bar. The time is NOW to make a major improvement from a win-loss standpoint because our talent has done nothing but improve since 2010. No excuses. We should be well ahead of where we are.

When the best player in the Ivies decides to bail a few days before the first game, it doesn't help things. Nonetheless, these young men are playing hard and getting better every week.

The remaining schedule has six home games and two road games. The wins are coming. The tournament is within reach.

I agree Dartmouth is capable but you need to ask why we aren’t winning. I guess we can claim a moral victory by coming back and making it close. Hmm that only works in horseshoes. We start poorly most games and then chargeback. We make critical errors down the stretch and mostly those are our seniors so you can’t even say it’s our freshman. They may be playing hard but they are not playing smart and we don’t look prepared when we start the game. Who is that on? The coaches? The players? The senior leaders? Well coached teams find a way to win some of the close games and don’t give up 5 point leads with a minute to go. Barry is wearing down in conference play. It’s obvious that he can’t run point the entire game and still be a productive scorer as defenders key on him. We relay on the three which was ok to begin the season but ihas let us down. We have food inside players with Wmwry, Knight and Jackson why not mix it up and pins the ball inside on smaller teams. I would do that to Princeton that struggles Witt interior defense
The Ivies aren’t dominating this year which makes our start even worse than last year. We have odd substitution patterns and don’t have our best guys on the court always when it counts. Wright plays a lot of minutes and is unreliable but McLaughlin keeps him on the floor. Our defense is our biggest issue and a reason we can’t make stops to close out games. I

Brown beat Dartmouth on a last second cast-off at the buzzer.

These Ivy teams are not the "Monsters of the Midway". Dartmouth is capable of beating any of them. Just do it!!

Penn and Princeton are a combined 8-2 in league play.

Watch them tonight and let us know what scouting report you'd give to McLaughlin.
