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.
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.

With a bid to the NCAA on the line, the Tigers put together a strong performance to sweep Yale in the Ivy League playoffs.

The Tigers clinched their return to the tournament with an emphatic 3-0 victory over the bulldogs.
“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.”

The Princeton team will head to New Haven this weekend to play for an NCAA bid.
This past weekend, the women’s volleyball team travelled to Cornell and Columbia to complete the first half of its Ivy League competition.

They are now tied with Harvard for second.
