Every few years, a proposal to start a postseason tournament for Ivy League basketball is pushed forward. The coaches recently proposed a four-team tournament, but the key word is "proposed. " If adopted, and there are three layers that the proposal would have to pass, it would be modeled on the lacrosse tournament that was proposed about 2006 and began in 2010. In other words, don't get in line for tickets. The Ivy League athletic directors will meet May 8 to 10. They may talk about the proposal.

For Penn to clinch the Ivy League title this weekend, it needed a few pieces to fall in place to complete the puzzle. The Quakers needed to sweep Cornell and Columbia, while Princeton had to beat Columbia last night and lose to Cornell tonight. Penn was able to add one piece last night by defeating Cornell, 75-59, at Alberding Field House. Piece No. 2 was provided by Princeton, as the Tigers lost to Columbia, 65-57. Penn's victory was its ninth straight, as the Quakers improved their record to 10-0 in the Ivy League, 18-4 overall.

In this Eminem-saturated climate, the white emcee is hardly the scorned figure he once was. As hip-hop becomes an increasingly portable culture, racial baggage has never been less of an issue; where you are is becoming more important than how you got there. That only makes more quizzical the shamelessly geeky, Ivy League-educated stylings of MC Paul Barman. Discovered by visionary producer Prince Paul in 1999, the Brown graduate has let his background shape his music, rather than let an affinity for hip-hop dictate his identity.

Princeton (25-2, 13-0) clinched the Ivy League title and a first-ever spot in the NCAA women's basketball tournament last night with a 78-66 victory over Harvard (19-8, 10-3) in Cambridge, Mass. "Winning the Ivy League is a very difficult thing to do," Tigers coach Courtney Banghart said. "To do it by sweeping Dartmouth and Harvard on their courts is a testament to how far this team has come. " Freshman Niveen Rasheed had 23 points and 10 rebounds for the Tigers, who can finish with a perfect league record when they host Penn in Jadwin Gym at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Things may be a little different at Princeton this season, now that coach Steve Tosches doesn't have a single Garrett to carry the offense. The Tigers were co-champions of the Ivy League last season, thanks in large part to Judd Garrett, their all-time leading rusher and scorer. Garrett, the league's Player of the Year, rushed for a school record 1,347 yards and caught 34 passes before becoming an Eagles draft choice.

In the Ivy League, it is the year of the Tiger. With 16 starters back from a team that barely missed out on a league title last season, Princeton comes into this season as a prohibitive favorite. The Tigers of coach Steve Tosches are fueled by the Ivy's most potent rushing attack in junior Keith Elias and senior Erick Hamilton. Elias rushed for 902 yards and 12 touchdowns last year, and Hamilton added 572 yards and six scores. That duo will run behind an offensive line that returns four of five starters, including 6-foot-3, 240-pound tackle Chris Theiss, a second team all-Ivy pick last year.

They swept into the governor's mansions of Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi in the the late 1970s and the 1980s, promising that with their Ivy League educations they could reform the South and help their states catch up to the rest of the country. Suddenly, only Bill Clinton remains of the trio of young Turks. Louisiana's Buddy Roemer was ousted last month in a primary, and last week, Mississippi Gov. Ray Mabus was turned out as well - both victims of recession-wary voters and racial politics.

He probably will be the only baseball league president ever to have called the humanities "those activities of the mind that engage the fundamental ligatures that we share, aside from acts of love; that is, language.

PRESEASON MEDIA polls are nothing more than hopefully educated projections and a place to start. A year ago, coming off a 2-8 season and with a new coach in longtime assistant Ray Priore, Penn's football team was picked to finish sixth in the Ivy League, the lowest it had been voted in more than two decades. So the Quakers proceeded to win their last six games - which meant going on the road in November and handing defending champion Harvard its lone loss - to get their first title since 2012.

Many people contributed to the ninth regular-season Ivy League women's lacrosse title in the last 10 years for Penn, but a big assist goes to senior attack Nina Corcoran. Make that several assists. Corcoran, who on Wednesday was named the Ivy League attacker of the year, leads the nation with 48 assists and 3.2 assists per game for the 12-3 Quakers, who are ranked No. 12 in the most recent Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association poll. As with anybody who dishes to teammates with such stunning regularity, Corcoran is often thinking a play or two ahead of the opposition.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The problem with taking lessons from an NCAA Tournament loss is that the course is so difficult, you never can be sure when the next opportunity to take the exam will be. Theoretically, the Penn women's basketball team can take a lot of things from Saturday's 65-53 loss to Washington in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Quakers, who were outlasted but not overwhelmed by the Huskies, return almost all of the key players from an Ivy League champion that finished 24-5, and the best player - center Sydney Stipanovich - will be a senior who played in the postseason in her three previous years.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Penn's bid to win a women's NCAA tournament game for the first time came up short Saturday, as a cold-shooting fourth quarter doomed the No. 10-seeded Quakers in a 65-53 loss to No. 7-seeded Washington. Penn led 13-7 at the end of the first quarter, but Washington opened the second with a 10-0 run. Once the Quakers got back on their feet, they kept the game close, and took a 25-24 lead into intermission thanks to Kasey Chambers' buzzer-beating three-pointer. A tight third quarter culminated in a corner three-pointer by Talia Walton that gave the Huskies a 42-40 lead.

Say goodbye to Ivy League basketball as it's been known since the conference was founded in 1954. Beginning next March, the Ancient Eight hoops season will conclude with conference tournaments for the first time. The announcement was made official by the league office Thursday morning. No longer will the 14-game full round-robin determine the league's champion and NCAA tournament participant. Instead, the top four teams in the standings will travel to the Palestra for a knockout competition.

THE IVY LEAGUE was the last basketball postseason tournament holdout, calling its regular-season a "14-game tournament. " Now, after approving a four-team tournament for men and women starting next March at the Palestra with the automatic NCAA Tournament berth on the line, the league has joined the rest of college hoops. "I was calling former players both at Cornell and at Penn," said Penn men's coach Steve Donahue. "Something that stuck with me was what David Klatsky said, 'That the most exciting game of my life was the Yale playoff game' . . . At Cornell, we won championships and one time we won it at Brown.

PRINCETON, N.J. - The Princeton women's basketball team has lost seven Ivy League games in the last seven seasons. Penn won its second Ivy title in three seasons Wednesday night at Jadwin Gym, beating the Tigers, 62-60, in a game the Quakers led from late in the first quarter until the final two minutes. Penn gave up the lead for exactly 15 seconds, got it back on a three-point play from Anna Ross, the most skilled player on the court, and held it to the wire. "As I just told my players, you don't get these opportunities too many times in sports to celebrate something like this," Penn coach Mike McLaughlin said.

THE QUESTION is answered before it's fully asked. "Grande iced coffee, with two pumps of white mocha. " Michelle Nwokedi can order Sydney Stipanovich's favorite Starbucks drink as easily as she can hit her for a layup from the high post. "Nailed it!" Stipanovich said. Sometimes, you wonder whether Nerlens Noel could order Jahlil Okafor iced tea. The story is enticingly parallel: Local team acquires two elite, teenaged post players. There, the plot diverges. One pair quickly expand their skills and develop a selfless chemistry that their experienced coach exploits into an attack unprecedented in league history.

Makai Mason scored 22 points and Brandon Sherrod added 13 to lead Yale to a 71-55 victory over Columbia on Saturday night in New York, clinching the Bulldogs' first NCAA tournament bid since 1962. The Bulldogs (22-6, 13-1 Ivy) shared the league championship last year with Harvard, but lost the playoff game with the Crimson. Saturday's win ended the second longest NCAA drought of any team that has made the tournament previously, according to Stats. Only Dartmouth (1959) has gone longer without making it. Columbia is now third on that list, having not made the NCAAs since 1968.
