The men’s basketball team is doing better now that Ian Hummer ’13 is gone.
The men’s basketball team stormed past Fairleigh Dickinson Saturday, continuing its best start since the 1997-98 season. The Tigers (6-1) have not lost since they fell to Butler by three on Nov. 16.
Men’s basketball hosts Fairleigh Dickinson Saturday at 7 p.m. in Jadwin Gymnasium. The Tigers (5-1) are off to their best start in 16 years and look to continue a four game win streak against the Knights (3-7). Princeton is ranked 70th in the country in Jeff Sagarin’s college basketball computer rankings, which are based on which teams have beaten which teams and by how much. These rankings go back to the 1999-2000 season and have never seen the Tigers ranked this high at the end of the season.
The Ivies are off to a great start this basketball season, and most of the teams look like they will be boasting excellent records when they start Ivy play. Here's how the Ancient Eight breaks down after the first few weeks of competition against non-league opponents:
Watching Blake Dietrick shoot the ball is fun. In the women’s basketball game against Oregon on Sunday, the junior guard hit every single shot she took in the first half — eight buckets on eight shots, accounting for 21 of the Tigers’ 55 points going into halftime. Did I mention she sunk every one of the five three-pointers that she attempted in those 20 minutes?
With 71-66 and 66-53 wins over George Mason and Bucknell, respectively, overThanksgiving break, the men’s basketball team has opened their season with a 5-1 mark for the first time since current head coach Mitch Henderson ’98's team did so duringHenderson’s senior season.
The men’s basketball team defeated George Mason 71-66 Tuesday night at Jadwin Gym in a rollercoaster ride of a game.
Men’s basketball: Princeton looking to extend winning streak
The men’s basketball team went on several long runs and showed off its three-point shooting ability to defeat Rice 70-56 in Houston on Saturday afternoon.
The men’s basketball team heads to Houston on Saturday to take on Rice in its fourth game of the season. The Tigers (2-1), fresh off Wednesday night’s thrilling overtime win against Lafayette, are off to their best start since 2009, when they also went 2-1.Should they win Saturday, it would be the team’s first 3-1 start in seven years.
For the second-straight week, the men’s basketball team (1-1) took the court without its emotional leader and captain, senior guard T.J. Bray. Following last weekend’s 67-50 shellacking of Florida A&M, Princeton headed to Indianapolis to face a tougher squad in Butler (2-0), which has reached two NCAA Finals games in the past four years. Stellar offensive performances by sophomore forward Hans Brase and junior forward Denton Koon helped Princeton net exactly 67 points again, but a last-second chance to force overtime rimmed out and gave Butler a three-point victory.
After opening the 2013-14 season with a convincing 67-50 win over Florida A&M last weekend, the men’s basketball team will look to start 2-0 for the first time in four years when it tips off against Butler on Saturday night in Indianapolis. The Tigers (1-0) will also look to beat the Bulldogs (1-0) for the first time, as both of the previous meetings have resulted in Butler victories.
Since Jadwin Gymnasium opened in 1969, the men’s basketball team has won 17 of its 26 Ivy League Championships. The Tigers boast a 408-114 record on Carril Court, going 260-53 over league opponents.
The long-awaited Ivy League basketball season finally got underway last weekend, with most teams winning their opening-day matchups. Here’s how the Ancient Eight stacks up as the action begins again:
The men's basketball team opens their season against Florida A&M in Jadwin Gym. The game is indicative in seeing how Princeton will play without star Ian Hummer '13, who led the team last here in scoring, rebounding, assists, blocks and offensive rebounds. Hummer also led last year's Ivy League in points per game.
The men’s basketball team opened its season Sunday at Jadwin Gym with a comfortable 67-50 win against Florida A&M. Despite a lackluster second half, Princeton largely dominated the Rattlers (0-2 overall), holding them to 32.7 percent shooting and just 1-11 from beyond the arc.
“The nature of collegiate athletics, not to be cliche, is that you have turnover,” women’s basketball head coach Courtney Banghart said at her team’s preseason press conference.
