With the non-conference schedule drawing to a close, the most important part of the season is set to begin as the men’s basketball teams in the Ivy League begin their quest for a league title and an NCAA Tournament berth. With the start of conference play less than a week away, we take a look at how the teams have fared so far this season:
The Princeton men’s basketball team travels to 6th-ranked Maryland (9-1) this weekend in what will be by far its toughest test of this young season. Rebounding from two straight losses, the Tigers’ leading scorers, juniors Henry Caruso and Spencer Weisz, combined for 45 points as Lipscomb’s struggles continued. However, Princeton will likely face a much more dangerous opponent in the Terrapins.
After an encouraging victory against Lipscomb University down in Nashville, Tenn., the men’s basketball team looks to continue its newfound momentum as it takes on Liberty University back at Jadwin Gymnasium on Thursday night.
With just under a month left until league play begins, the Ivy League women’s basketball teams have been testing their mettle against non-conference foes. A year after Princeton ran away with the title, the league looks much more competitive this season, with both last year’s closest challengers in Penn and bottom dwellers in Brown and Columbia enjoying successful starts to the year. Here’s how the Tigers and the rest have fared so far:
At the end of back-to-back-to-back weekends on the road, the men’s basketball team found success in their second-to-last road trip before winter break. Traveling to the Music City of Nashville, Tenn., they took down Lipscomb University 78-64.
The men’s basketball team looks to rebound from its first two losses of the season as it faces a struggling Lipscomb team (3-8 overall) on the road this weekend.
After getting off to as strong of a start as they had seen in a long time, the men’s basketball team was dealt its first loss of the season this past Saturday, falling on the road 77-91 to the Stony Brook Seawolves and star forward Jameel Warney, the reigning back-to-back American East Player of the Year.
The Princeton men’s basketball team has stormed out of the gate in its first month, rattling off victories over Rider, St. Peter’s, Lafayette and Fairleigh Dickinson to start its season 4-0 (0-0 Ivy League). In fact, the team’s current record indicates its best start since the 1997-98 season.
Princeton men’s basketball (4-0 overall) got out to its best start to a season since 1997-98 with two strong wins in the last week.
Another exciting year of Ivy League basketball has begun. Although it is too early to make any calls or predictions, many teams have already settled into the season, creating the tone for future games. With conference play still over a month away, teams have many opportunities to improve their skills and chemistry as a squad. But, here is how they are doing so far.
The men’s basketball team (2-0) returned to their old stomping ground in Dillon Gymnasium as the team played its first game there since Jan. 11, 1969. The team hosted Saint Peter’s (1-3) as part of this fixture in front of a sell-out crowd of 1,306.
It’s an event unseen in multiple decades — the men’s basketball team will play its home opener not within the usual confines of Jadwin Gymnasium, but rather in the more centrally located Dillon Gymnasium. The last time the Tigers competed in the space was in January of 1969.
This past Friday, the men’s basketball team opened the season with a game against neighboring Rider University. In a gripping match, the Tigers sealed an away win, defeating the Broncs 64-56. Princeton has now won four straight season openers, starting another year on an auspicious note.

Following the graduation of star player T.J. Bray and shooter Will Barrett, the Tigers (16-14 overall, 9-5 Ivy League) headed into this season combating inexperience and a leadership vacuum. With only one upperclassman in the starting lineup, many doubted whether such a young team would be able to compete in a conference featuring veteran Crimson and Bulldog squads. Fortunately, the Tigers met these challenges and questions in stride to grow as a team over the course of the season and finish with a winning 16-14 overall record.
In a thrilling weekend, the Princeton men’s basketball team swept opponents Cornell and Columbia in its final homestand of the season. Previously, they had split their games in the four-game road trip.
