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.

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.
