DALLAS -- It was a glorious media day today at the American Airlines Center. I've got to give Mark Cuban and the rest of the guys behind this arena all the credit in the world. It is by far the nicest stadium I have ever been in.

The Penn-Princeton rivalry belongs to the Quakers ... in February and March, that is. The Penn men's basketball team is 8-1 in its last nine against the Tigers, and the gap is widening.
This is the last new opponent Penn will be playing this regular season.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- As those of you in Philadelphia know full well, the Northeast corridor is getting whacked by a big snowstorm this evening. While it hasn't hit Massachusetts yet, by tomorrow morning it'll be a different story. The forecast is for a foot or so of snow, which is why the Penn men's basketball team is already on its way back south.
Back in the 1960s, there was a popular genre of Soul music called the Philly Sound. These days, though, the Philly Sound is the roar that can only be found at a Big 5 game like the one that took place this evening between Villanova and Saint Joseph's. Both student sections were full an hour before tipoff, and ESPN2 said that the Hawks fans got in as early as 4 p.m. Throughout the night, the two sides of the arena had at each other with as much ferocity as the game that was taking place in front of them. For every St. Joe's cheer that "The Hawk will never die," there was a reply from Villanova of "N-I-T," and on some occasions I swear the "Let's go 'Nova" and "Let's go St. Joe's" chants were exactly in sync.
The Good: Princeton pounded Yale in the closing 11 minutes to win 66-49. That's a barn burner at Jadwin if I've ever seen one. Yep, that's 4-12 Princeton beating one of the handful of teams who could potentially win a game against Penn this year.
For the first time this year, Penn will be playing a team that has two away uniforms. The Hawks have their standard black, and the alternate red.
