The mythical Hoop Time-Basketball U. Challenge virtual trophy will be e-mailed to the Ivies following tonight's Penn-Lafayette game.
It was the seventh time this season that has happened, leading coach Billy Lange to tell the Baltimore Sun:
"It's a familiar-looking box score. Instead of Billy Lange, I feel like Bill Murray in the movie Groundhog Day."
The Navy loss means the Ivies take the coveted Hoop Time-Basketball U. Challenge virtual trophy, which we will e-mail to the folks at that Ivy hoops site. The Ivies lead the series 12-10 with tonights game between Penn and Lafayette now just another non-conference game. It is the first time the Ivies have won the series since the 2001-02 season, when they won 14 of 22 against a league with very limited scholarship players.

The past two seasons, as scholarship talent began to fill the Patriot rosters, the Patriot's seemed to be gaining an advantage, holding a 12-10 edge in 2002-03 and winning the series last season 14-6. Not this year, though.
