CBB, here's a fun project for you during the summer slow period. Can you assemble a master list of Ivy players who have participated in the Maccabiah Games? I'll bet that would be a pretty impressive list, probably heavy on Princeton and Yale alumni.

CBB: Excellent story about Izzy Jaabar. We can only hope to bring in a guard with his talent level someday.
