To top a historic season, the men's basketball team (23-6, 16-0 Ivy League) just concluded a victorious weekend at the Palestra in Philadelphia at the first annual Ivy League tournament. The team is now advancing to the NCAA's 2017 Division I Men's Basketball Tournament. The Tigers are the No. 12 seed on the official bracket of the West region in the national tournament, scheduled to face off against No. 5 seed Notre Dame (25-9) for the first round of March Madness. The game will be played on March 16 at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York.
Princeton’s overtime victory over Penn this afternoon in the semifinal of the inaugural Ivy League Men’s Basketball Tournament serves as an excellent example of why so many argued for an Ivy League tournament in the first place. Despite never holding a lead in regulation, the Tigers mounted an incredible comeback in a thrilling game to secure a 72-64 win. Coach Mitch Henderson ’98 agrees. “I thought it was a terrific basketball game,” he said.
On Wednesday, hundreds of Princeton students mobbed the Frist ticket office to get their seats at the Palestra this weekend. With music, endless T-shirts, and an overall mood that can only be described as “hype,” it became clear that Ivy Madness had officially begun.
With time winding down and the game tied at 69, Princeton needed someone to step up and score the decisive basket. Enter junior guard Amir Bell. Bell’s drive to the basket and floater with 1.1 seconds left put everyone in Jadwin Gymnasium on the edge of their seats. When the ball came through the hoop, the arena erupted.
The 2016-17 Princeton men’s basketball team has joined an elite group with their perfect 14-0 Ivy League record. After an 85-48 blowout win against Dartmouth (7-20 overall, 4-10 Ivy), the Tigers have completed their sweep of the Ivy League and extended their winning streak to 17 games.
With two games remaining in the regular season, there is little more the Princeton men’s basketball team can be doing to ensure its success. Not a single team in the Ivy League has managed to dethrone the Tigers this season, and Princeton (19-6 overall, 12-0 Ivy League) is currently riding an unstoppable 15-game win streak. On the flip side, Princeton is garnering little national attention for this feat, while the media focuses on the likes of Kansas, Villanova, and Kentucky — the usual suspects of men’s college basketball. In fact, only after winning 15 straight games did Princeton earn a single measly vote in the weekly national rankings.
This men’s basketball team is on a mission.
Women's basketball knew that if they were going to have a shot at winning the regular season title, they would have to steal some wins on the road. This weekend proved that they had the talent and mindset to go into enemy territory and walk out with a win.
With two close wins last weekend against Dartmouth (4-15 overall, 1-5 Ivy) and Harvard (12-7, 4-2), as well as a mid-week win over Penn (7-12, 0-6), the men’s basketball team (13-6, 6-0) comes home leading the Ivy League; these wins extended Princeton’s win streak to nine games. Now, at 6-0, the Tigers remain one of only a small handful of undefeated teams in conference play in the country, no small feat on their part. The last time Princeton hit the 6-0 mark, the team won the Ancient Eight.
What’s the exact opposite of the remarkable 5-0 start the Tigers are enjoying this season? And the opposite of an eight-game winning streak, with victories against the likes of Harvard, Dartmouth, Yale, and Brown? Well, if we are looking in the Ivy League, Penn comes about as close as it gets.
Dear Princetonian children, I hope this letter finds you well from the sacred and noble University of Pennsylvania. Our president, Ms. Amy Gutmann, left your school back in 2004 to pursue a career at what she decisively determined to be the nation's superior institution, so I hope you will forgive my condescending nature towards you folks — perfectly intelligent tenants of a top-50 university yourselves.
In a game of ups and downs, the men’s basketball team escaped with a win in the Ivy season-opener against Penn on Saturday night. Though the Tigers amassed a 34-17 lead to conclude the first half, a slow start in the second brought the Quakers back into the ballgame. However, the veteran Princeton team led by head coach Mitch Henderson outlasted Penn down the stretch to grab the win.
