Check out the performance of the Orange and Black this past weekend!
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.

This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Dec. 1 through 3, Princeton will be hosting the Big Al Invitational for men’s and women’s swim and dive at DeNunzio Pool. This invitational is one of the biggest early-season collegiate swimming and diving meets.
The Princeton women’s hockey team (2-7-3) was quite busy this Thanksgiving break, traveling all the way to North Andover, Mass. to play in a two-game set against Merrimack College (6-10-3). While the Tigers put forth their best efforts over the holiday break, a win against Merrimack is one fewer thing the Tigers have to be thankful for.
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 facing tough opponents in a rocky start to their season, the men’s basketball team has managed to string together a pair of wins after an 83-76 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson University. The Tigers started the game strong, fending off a surge from the Knights in the second half to grab their second win of the season.
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.
The Princeton men’s and women’s hockey teams faced tough losses this past weekend in games that both ended in complete shutouts. The women matched up against Clarkson University and the men’s team faced off against the Brown Bears at home.
The 2017 Princeton women’s soccer season has had its fair share of exciting, big time games. But none compare to the Tigers’ stunning 2–1 victory over North Carolina, advancing them to the NCAA quarterfinals in the most exciting, high-stakes game of the season.
With a bid to the NCAA on the line, the Tigers put together a strong performance to sweep Yale in the Ivy League playoffs. Princeton and Yale led the Ancient Eight this season, sharing a piece of the Ivy League title. The tie meant a playoff match in New Haven would determine which side would enter the NCAA. The Tigers clinched their return to the tournament with an emphatic 3-0 victory over the bulldogs.
Eight months after winning the inaugural Ivy League championship in Philadelphia, the Princeton men’s basketball team returned to the City of Brotherly Love to face St. Joseph in its third non-conference game of the season. On Nov. 18, however, the Tigers, failed to come away with a win, falling 71–58.
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.
“When we show up at races everyone has coordinated outfits and everything,” said senior Zartosht Ahlers. “We don’t look good. We really look bad. But I love that. I love people being like that’s Princeton, they look horrible but they are fast. We like our reputation of being weird.”
