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.
Following a heartbreaking end to its 2012-13 season, the men’s basketball team will soon begin a new quest for the Ivy League title that eluded it by one game last spring. Nursing the loss of Ian Hummer '13, the second-most prolific scorer in school history, the squad has reloaded by adding six freshmen and three veterans returning from time off.
Men’s Basketball1. Princeton vs. Harvard Saturday, Feb. 22: The Tigers will have faced Harvard once already at this point in the season, and a win over the Crimson in this game would be great for their hopes of dethroning the defending Ivy League champs. Harvard was the unanimous pick to win the league in the preseason poll, but the Crimson has not beaten the Tigers in Jadwin Gymnasium in their past 24 encounters there. The game will also air on ESPN3.2. Princeton vs. Penn Tuesday, March 11:Besides being a huge rivalry game for the Tigers, the final home game of the season could have very important implications for the Ivy League. Princeton will take on a Penn team projected to finish second in the league despite going only 6-8 in league play last season. Last year’s senior class became only the fourth class in the Jadwin Gym era to win all four of its home games against Penn, and now this year’s senior class will try to become the fifth.3. Princeton vs. Yale Friday, Feb. 28:The Tigers will be looking for revenge when they take on Yale at home this year, as last year’s meeting in Jadwin between the two teams ended with the Bulldogs breaking the Tiger’s 21-game Ivy League home winning streak. The loss was Princeton's only home loss against an Ivy opponent. The Bulldogs were projected to finish third in the preseason poll, so this game will likely have important implications for the two teams.4. Princeton vs. Columbia Friday, Feb. 7:Princeton'sfirst Ivy home game of the season will come against a Columbia team that they have beaten eight straight times. The Tigers will have already played three Ivy road games by this point, and they will be glad to be return to Jadwin, as eight of their previous 10 games will have taken place on the road. The Lions were picked to finish last in the Ivy League by a very slim margin, obtaining 37 points while Cornell and Dartmouth received 38.5. Princeton vs. George Mason Tuesday, Nov. 26:The matchup against the Patriots will be the Tigers' fifth game of the season and their third at home. Princeton should be in good form by this point and will have a good test against a George Mason team that is arguably the best non-Ivy team the Tigers will play in Jadwin this season.Women’s Basketball1. Princeton vs. Harvard Friday, Jan. 31:The Tigers have gone a very impressive 54-2 in Ivy League play over the past four seasons. Both those losses, however, have come against the Crimson, including a 58-55 loss last year in Cambridge that snapped Princeton’s 33-game conference winning streak. The Tigers were picked to finish first in the Ivy preseason poll, but Harvard is not far behind, and this game will likely be a must-win.2. Princeton vs. Penn Tuesday, March 11:Before the men’s team takes on Penn in its last game of the seasonTuesdaynight at8 p.m., the women’s team will do the same at5:30 p.m.The doubleheader should be very exciting for Princeton fans, but the Tigers hope that they will have clinched the Ivy League by this point. Regardless, the Quakers, predicted to finish third, will be eager either to play spoiler or to defeat Princeton for the Ivy title.3. Princeton vs. Marist Sunday, Nov. 17:While the Tigers were almost perfect in Ivy League play last season, five non-conference losses in the first half of the season prevented them from being seeded higher in the NCAA tournament, something that would have been very helpful for a squad that has lost in the first round of the tournament each of the past four years. Marist was among those losses, and a win this year would be huge for the Tigers. Additionally, the game will be Princeton's home opener.4. Princeton vs. Yale Saturday, Feb. 15:Yale rounds out the top half of the league, the weakest of the four teams that received at least 90 points in the preseason poll. The game will be approximately halfway through conference play and should give us a good indicator of how good a squad the Tigers are by this point.5. Princeton vs. Delaware Sunday, Dec. 15:Avenging last year's loss to Delaware, like beating Marist, could really benefit Princeton's postseason chances. Last year’s game was the closest game the Tigers played all season, as they lost by a single point. Although Delaware lost a great player in Elena Delle Donne, it is still a strong team, and a Princeton win would be helpful in proving that the Tigers deserve a higher seed in the NCAA tournament.
Feb. 11, 1983: Pete Carril secures his 273victory as Princeton’s head basketball coach, becoming the Tigers’ all-time leader in wins. Carril, whose name is now synonymous with Princeton basketball, currently holds the highest winning percentage of any Ivy League head coach ever (.658). Much of his success was due to his capacity to develop less-than-stellar players within his system, as well as his stalwart defensive scheme, which, at one point, allowed the fewest points of any team in the nation for eight years in a row.
Recent alumnus Ian Hummer ’13, second only to Bill Bradley ’65 on Princeton’s all-time scoring list, may still be playing basketball next year. Hummer had his first workout with an NBA team on Friday with the Phoenix Suns and will work out with the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings later this month.
