New Dartmouth coach Dave McLaughlin will not have to worry about the hardest part of building a college basketball team — finding a star. Evan Boudreaux can be penned into that role for the next three seasons, having earned Rookie of the Year honors by averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds in Ivy play this […]
After a month-long search, Cornell hired former Princeton assistant Brian Earl this week to be its next head coach. Earl takes over a difficult situation; the Big Red has a spotty basketball history and spent the last six seasons below .500. But as one of the Ivy League’s most respected and longest-tenured assistants, he should […]
Unless you’re at one of about 20 top schools in the country hiring a head coach is similar to recruiting. You go find the best one you can and hope they’re a good fit.

Recapping the news from a historic week in Ivy League basketball:

Smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Like many other seniors in March after a loss that ended their collegiate careers, Brandon Sherrod fought back tears on the postgame NCAA Tournament podium as he was peppered with questions that ranged from inane to sentimental. However, in Sherrod’s […]
