To the Editor,

Please be advised that I have been a Yale basketball fan for over 50 years. I have seen the likes of Rick Kaminsky, Butch Graves, Jim Morgan and many more. I currently cover Yale for Ivy Hoops Online and am the color commentator for some Yale games on WYBC. Yale has an excellent team this year. A team that outplayed Kansas for 30 minutes in December. So does Princeton, a Sweet 16 team last season after defeating Arizona and Missouri and also losing to Yale twice during the season. The two Ivy powers play at JLA on Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. and this could be the first men’s two-bid Ivy in history. It would be a shame if Yale fans in the community and more importantly Yale students don’t turn out and cheer on the Bulldogs and make the building loud and Cameron North, in what is the most significant college basketball game of the night and perhaps of the entire Ivy season. 

Thanks. Richard Kent
