At 5–2 and 2–6 respectively, the women’s and men’s basketball teams have started the year very differently. Yet this isn’t very surprising, nor should it be reason for panic, when looking back on last year.
The women’s basketball team (5-2) came into last night at Lafayette (3-5) looking to pick up back-to-back wins after a win on Saturday at home over Delaware. The two teams had met early last season and Princeton came away with the win (65-27,) a goal the Tigers were looking to repeat. On Wednesday night, the Tigers were victorious 53-45.
After a close loss to No. 24 Villanova, the women’s basketball team came into their match against Delaware hungry for a win. A career-high performance from senior guard Tia Weledji would give them just that as the Tigers cruised to a 78-60 victory over the Blue Hens.
Princeton men’s basketball will face University of Miami this Saturday at 8 p.m. The team will compete at a neutral location in Miami, where the Tigers will have the opportunity to test an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent before entering Ivy League play in the New Year.
The women’s and men’s basketball teams play games back-to-back at home in Jadwin Gymnasium on Wednesday, Nov. 27. The women’s game against No. 25 Villanova will tip first at 5:30 p.m. and will be immediately followed by the men’s game at approximately 8 p.m. against Lehigh.
After finishing in second place in both the Ivy League regular season and falling in the championship round of the Ivy League tournament, the Tigers were given a home game in the first round of the WNIT, where they would face fellow tri-state area college Villanova. Last season, the Tigers were upset in Jadwin 59-54, putting a sour end to an otherwise great season. In the defeat, the Tigers were unable to stop the Villanova starting five, who accounted for all but 6 points in the Wildcats win. Villanova was also able to contain then-freshman Bella Alarie last season as she was held to only 9 points, one of the lowest marks in her Tiger career.
While the Princeton women’s basketball team did not get the win on Sunday, Nov. 19 — they lost to undefeated Georgia Tech 67-56 at Jadwin Gymnasium — many positive things stood out that show long term signs of success for the team. One of the biggest signs is the play of sophomore power forward Bella Alarie, who continued her hot start with her second straight double double.
Last Friday night the Princeton women’s basketball team opened its season with a 72–52 win against the George Washington Colonials at home. Four Tigers scored in double figures, including senior guard Tia Weledji, who paced the team with 18 points.
A closer look at attendance rates to women’s games — over the span of a decade — shows attendance is a function of the team’s record while the men’s team, on the other hand, draws a consistent showing regardless of performance.
The Princeton Women’s Basketball Team’s season came to an end this afternoon after a defeat in the Ivy League Tournament Final against top-seeded Penn.

An estimated 200 students waited in line to buy tickets at Frist Campus Center for the Ivy League Basketball Tournament to be held March 11-12 at the Palestra in Philadelphia.
Coming into this weekend, the Tigers knew that they would be invited to the inaugural Ivy League tournament. What they didn’t know, however, was if they would be there defending a regular season title or just looking to turn a second or third place finish into a spot in the Big Dance this March.
For four years, women's basketball seniors Taylor Brown, Vanessa Smith, and Jackie Reyneke have made Jadwin Gymnasium their home. On Saturday, they walked off the court for their final time at Jadwin, capping a wild and record-setting four years for the Class of 2017.
