One benefit of Ivy League basketball’s weekend-only game schedule is that it provides ample opportunity for reflecting between games. I do that here, providing five thoughts I had following the men’s basketball team’s losses last weekend at Yale and Brown.
A few months ago, one of my friends became visibly upset. When I asked her why, she said that her parents hadn’t responded to her in four hours, and she was beginning to worry. At first, I wanted to laugh because it seemed like something so minuscule, something I would never think to worry about. But then it made me realize how I barely contact my parents and how they always contact me. The other day, my mom simply sent me a heart emoji, without me prompting her to do so. Sometimes she will just say “what’s up?” at a random time. She wants me to know she is thinking about me.
This past week, many students returned to campus after exciting travels over Intersession. When planning a trip, most people consider budget, location, and the people joining them. One thing, however, is often left off of the list: tourism’s impact on the environment and local communities. Though they may not find it glamorous or exciting to think about, students should attempt to travel sustainably in the various breaks that allow for that opportunity. The effects of not doing so are critically detrimental.

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey alleged that the Sackler family aimed to profit as much as it could from opioids.
On Feb. 9, women’s basketball (11—9, 3—2 Ivy) defeated Brown (9—13, 1—5), in its fifth Ivy League game of the season. The night before, during its alumnae weekend, the Tigers suffered an overtime loss to the Bulldogs. When asked about the significance of beating Brown after a tough defeat, head coach Courtney Banghart explained that the loss against Yale contributed to the team’s learning curve.
If you google “advice for college students,” many of the resulting articles will suggest that you “try new things.” For example, a Huffington Post article titled “The Only College Advice You’ll Ever Need” advises, “Don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone.” Many writers expound on the benefits of being adventurous during college. Most people scoff at this overplayed cliché. While the recommendation may lack originality, I find it valuable.
Men’s ice hockey (7—14—2, 5—10—1 ECAC) snapped a four-game losing streak Saturday with a 4–1 win over Yale (11—9—3, 9—6—1 ECAC). The victory saw eleven different Tigers scoring points, with junior forwards Joey Fallon and Liam Grande scoring their first goals of the season. Senior forward Ryan Kuffner, Princeton’s all-time leading scorer, added two goals, bringing his career total to 70.
Princeton students are arguably obsessed with planning. There are a myriad of advisers assigned to students from the moment they step on campus, with additional optional advisers as their career paths emerge. There are academic advisers, advisers within majors, and advisors for junior papers and senior theses, advisers for the pre-med and pre-law tracks, as well as advisers for Career Services. It seems that every possible life plan has a corresponding point of guidance available on campus. Security and advice abound for future-obsessed Princeton students.

Men’s basketball (12–7, 4–2 Ivy) lost both games on their road trip this weekend, defeated by Yale University (15–4, 5–1 Ivy) on Friday night 74–60 and by Brown University (14–8, 2–4 Ivy) on Saturday 78–70. The Tigers entered the weekend in first place and undefeated in the Ivy League, but emerged tied for second with three other teams and their first losses of conference play.
Sometimes the only reason I can finish an assignment is by knowing I get to read a book when I’m done. The realization that I can spend time with friends after completing an essay or problem set is motivation enough to finish the job. After a long day (or perhaps just several long hours) of doing homework or paid work, it’s critically important for me to relax — be it by watching a movie or going for a walk — so much so that I’ve proactively built this time into my schedule.
This weekend, the No. 5 ranked women’s hockey team (16–3–5, 14–1–3 ECAC) clinched this year’s Ivy League title with a win over Brown (5–18–2, 2–14–2) on Friday night. This is the team’s eighth Ivy League championship, its first since the 2015–2016 season, and Head Coach Cara Morey’s first in her tenure as Princeton’s head coach. Princeton still leads the ECAC by three points thanks to its sweep, Clarkson’s loss on Saturday, and Cornell’s tie on Saturday.

Junior forward Bella Alarie walked away from Friday night’s game against Yale (14–6 overall, 4–1 Ivy) with her fourth consecutive double-double, 38 points, six steals, three blocks, and the honor of becoming the 25th woman in Princeton’s history to score 1,000 points. But her outstanding performance was still not enough to deliver a win for her team; the game ended in a 96–86 overtime loss for Princeton (10–9, 2–2).
