Joe D's NCAAB Ivy League Game of the Month
Princeton vs. Harvard,
02/24/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 64 - 67
Point Spread: +10½/-101 Princeton
Today's winner is Princeton over Harvard. This is my Ivy League game of the Month.
Princeton comes in to this matchup with confidence, as the Tigers have taken the L2 over the Crimson (both SU and ATS), including February 11th's, 70-62 victory. Harvard has played some solid basketball this season but laying DD's is giving them way too much credit here. They are just 3-4 ATS their L7 games while Princeton has won their L4 contests (covering the L3) beating Dartmouth, Harvard, Columbia, and Cornell by an average of 12.2 PPG. Ian Hummer and Doug Davis are combining for 29.8 PPG and 9.5 RPG. The duo is a very strong 1-2 punch that will get their scoring on big tonight. The Crimson big men are use to outrebounding their opposition but fell flat in the first meeting. There is no indication that they won't have problems again here. The Tigers are 5-1 ATS their L6 games played vs. the Crimson, 38-18 ATS their L56 games played on the road, and 37-16 their L53 against teams with a winning percentage of over .600. Take Princeton. Thank you.
