If you had claimed before Friday night’s game that Princeton (14–8, 6–3 Ivy) would beat Cornell (13–12, 5–4) despite senior guard Myles Stephens scoring four points, junior center Richmond Aririguzoh scoring seven, and senior guard Devin Cannady not playing, nobody would have believed you.

In this year’s Ivy League, there are no easy wins. Top through bottom, every team is capable of putting up a good fight.
Apparently, Harvard guard Bryce Aiken is close with Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving — the two attended the same high school and have worked out together.
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.
Less than a month after he was suspended for violating team rules, men’s basketball standout Devin Cannady ’19 resumed play this weekend as the Tigers took on Yale and Brown.
Men’s basketball vs Wesley, @ Columbia and @ Cornell: W 91–62, W 55–43, W 70–61 OT
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.
Men’s basketball standout Devin Cannady ’19 has been arrested after he allegedly swung at a Department of Public Safety officer in Wawa early morning on Friday, Jan. 18, according to The Trentonian.
The last time Princeton men’s hockey (currently 6–11–2, 4–7–1 ECAC) beat Harvard (7–5–3, 4–4–2), its senior leaders, including forwards Max Véronneau, Ryan Kuffner, and Alex Riche, weren’t on the team. Friday night, those seniors played a critical role in the team’s 4–2 home win, the first over the Crimson since 2013.
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 response to concerns that the University’s bonfire tradition prioritized the success of the football team over other athletic teams, the University has enacted a new policy. In order to celebrate a bonfire, all varsity athletic teams will need to beat Harvard and Yale in the same year.
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 vs. St John’s at Madison Square Garden, 74–89
Men’s basketball vs. George Washington: W 73–52
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.
