In Saturday’s battle of the Joneses, it was Yale coach, James Jones who came out on top as the Bulldogs beat Columbia, a team coached by his brother Joe Jones, by a score of 79-64 at Levien Gymnasium.
Joe Jones had a hard time putting his team’s loss into words. Ten seconds, that’s how long it took him to answer the first question at the post-game press conference.

East Rutherford, N.J. – The New Jersey Nets came very close to winning, again, on Sunday against the Philadelphia 76ers. Instead, they lost for the 42nd time this season — they have only four wins– and are on pace to break the record for the worst season ever in the NBA held by the 1972-73 Sixers who had only nine wins.
“We held them to 83 points but we weren’t able to score enough,” said forward Kris Humphries. “I know it’s pretty simple but when you look at it you know, we’ve got to score more then 79 points.” The Sixers were the third team in a row to be held under 90 points by the Nets.
If New Jersey’s defense was in good form, the offense crumbled, especially in the second half. “We had plenty of shots and we worked hard to get them but we just missed them,” said interim head coach Kiki Vandeweghe.
