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.
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.
Men’s basketball (12—5 overall, 4—0 Ivy), currently in first place and undefeated in the Ivy League, will play Yale (13—4, 3—1) and Brown (13—7, 1—3) this weekend in what will be a crucial test to its Ivy League domination.
Friday’s win over Columbia (6–11, 1–2 Ivy) wasn’t the prettiest game ever played, but Princeton (11–5, 3–0) will certainly take it.
One week after beating Penn (10–6, 0–2 Ivy) in overtime to open Ivy League play, Princeton (9–5, 2–0) defeated the Quakers again, this time at the Palestra in a 62–53 defensive struggle.
In the final stretch of its Ivy League opener at home against Penn (10–5 overall, 0–1 Ivy), Princeton men’s basketball (8–5, 1–0) couldn’t seem to get out of its own way. First, the Tigers stalled offensively and blew a 59–51 lead in the game’s final minutes as Penn forced overtime. In the overtime period, Princeton missed the front end of a one-and-one twice, allowing Penn to grab a crucial rebound off its own missed free throw and throw the ball out of bounds on an inbounds play.
Depending on how you feel about the transitive property, Princeton (7–5 overall, 0–0 Ivy) may have a claim to be the best team in the country. Saturday, the Tigers pulled off a stunning 67–66 upset against No. 17 Arizona State (9–3), who defeated No. 1 Kansas (11–1) in its previous game.
With a game last week against undefeated St. John’s (9–0) and games over winter break against national powerhouse Duke (9–1) and No. 20 Arizona State (7–1), men’s basketball (4–4, 0–0 Ivy) has lined up a tough non-conference schedule. The team should consider itself lucky. Given the caliber of this year’s Ivy League, it will need all the experience it can get against really strong teams.
Men’s basketball (4–4 overall, 0–0 Ivy) was defeated 89–74 by St. John’s University (9–0) on Sunday, Dec. 9 afternoon. The match took place at Madison Square Garden (MSG), in New York City, as part of the MSG Holiday Festival.
Men’s basketball (4–3 overall, 0–0 Ivy) was defeated by St. Joseph’s University (5–4) on Wednesday night, with a final score of 92–82. The Tigers, despite staying competitive for most of the first half and tying the score twice, never took the lead during the entire game.
Senior Devin Cannady had a team leading 23 points in the Tigers’ loss to St. Joes.
Men’s basketball (4–2, 0–0 Ivy) defeated George Washington University (1–7) on Saturday evening 73–52. The Tigers led for most of the game, including the entire second half.
Three-and-a-half games into the Princeton men’s basketball season, things were already looking grim. Trailing 27–20 at halftime against Monmouth (0–7 overall), Princeton (2–2, 0–0 Ivy League) was continuing an abysmal shooting stretch, going 4 of 17 behind the arc, and was at risk of giving the 0–6 Hawks their first win. Then, senior guard Devin Cannady demonstrated why everything might turn out alright. The senior guard knocked down four three-pointers in the last five minutes of the game to lead the Tigers to a 60–57 win.
The NCAA’s most equally matched league is set for another tightly contested year as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and even Penn get set to compete for the top spot in the Ivy League.
With the season on the line, the men’s basketball team fell just short of qualifying for the Ivy League Tournament in a heartbreaking overtime loss to Yale. To qualify, the Tigers needed to win both games this weekend and for Harvard to defeat Columbia. While Princeton handily defeated Brown 78–63, the Orange and Black were narrowly outscored in OT with Yale, falling to the Bulldogs 90–94. Penn is the top seed followed by Harvard, Yale, and Cornell.
Heading into the final weekend of Ivy League hoops, four teams are still in the running for the all-important fourth and final spot in the Ivy League Tournament. This weekend proves to be one of the most exciting finishes in recent Ivy memory, and Princeton is caught in the middle of it. Having trouble wrapping your head around all the possible playoff scenarios in play for the Tigers? The Daily Prince’s very own Owen Tedford ’20 breaks it down case by case and shows us how the Tigers can earn that fourth spot and have a chance to repeat as Ivy League Tournament Champs.
Getting to know the University’s next basketball star
