Paint, stand and cheer for the Ivy Champs

by Frank Wojciechowski

Princeton's normally sedate student body did its best impression of Duke's fabled Cameron Crazies during the Princeton-Penn men's basketball game on Tuesday, March 6, in Jadwin Gym. Princeton won convincingly, 6852, clinching a most unlikely Ivy League championship and a trip to the NCAA tournament, and inspiring the delirious student crowd to begin chanting, "We want Stanford! We want Stanford!" While the Tigers didn't draw the top-ranked Cardinal, they came close; they faced former number one University of North Carolina on March 16 in New Orleans.
