What's Next, the Best Hockey Players from Ecuador?
The Princeton Basketball Blog linked to this post from yahoo.com, which names the 7 best NBA players from Ivy League schools.
Four are from Princeton; none are from Penn. (And one Princetonian, Bud Palmer, was a pretty well-known sportscaster years ago for one of the major networks; another was a U.S. Senator from New Jersey).
None from Penn? Really? Not Dave Wohl, Corky Calhoun, Bob Bigelow, (current Penn coach) Jerome Allen. Yale's Chris Dudley, who lost a bid to become Oregon's governor last year, also failed to make the list. And neither did Harvard's Jeremy Lin. I don't know why Yahoo focused only on 7, but that's what they did.
