Re end of game situations, I've long wondered about the following. All of the teams in the Ivies play man D and only occasionally play some zone, but I presume that each team has practiced playing zone. If at the end of a game the team without the ball has been playing man for the entire game and now faces its opponent that will get the ball with, say 4 or 5 seconds on the clock, why not throw up a zone? It always takes an offense time to adjust to a zone and in a zone the entire defense is facing and can see exactly what the offense may try to do in those last 4 or 5 seconds.

During JTIII's tenure, Yale was up by one with 10 or 15 seconds left in New Haven, and missed a shot. Princeton came down with the ball and won the game without having called time out. JTIII or one of the players later called it a scramble play, letting the team play it out without interrupting the flow with an interruption. That was the coach's decision. I think it was Venable who put in the final points. I think it was also the game where the incipient Mrs. Bengal vowed never to attend another P sporting event with me due to the embarrassment over my audience participation which can occasionally attract attention from rows around. At least at Yale.

Your use of the adjective "incipient" to describe the woman who eventually Mrs. Bengal became intrigues me.

Presumably, she found your audience participation behavior mortifying, but not so much that she would discontinue the dating dance, nor decline the opportunity to become Mrs. Bengal.

It sounds like she found you embarrassing to squire her at Payne-Whitney, but the rest of your game was top notch.

Mrs. B would probably say persistent rather than top-notch, LOL. Cheers.

It sounds to me that it was Mrs Bengal who was persistent. And can you blame her?

Congratulations to her for closing the deal.

In my experience, an orange and black rugby jersey is well nigh unto irresistible to the preferred sex, especially if one proposes on Halloween.

Go Tiger.

Dr. V, I am a bit surprised by your strategy with the game on the line. "Throw up a zone"?, something you don't ever use in late game situations (remember everyone sees every game)? Don't you want to use your best defense? A zone allows you to get an open look for your opponents' best shooters with no pressure to get it in bounds.
