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.
Despite a late comeback attempt from the Liberty Eagles, the Tigers never gave up the lead in Saturday’s 67-64 victory. With the help of strong bench play thanks to sophomore guard Myles Stephens and junior guard Aaron Young, the Tigers improved to a 4-4 record, winning four of their last six games.
Fresh off of splitting their two game homestand, the Princeton men's basketball team is set to hit the road once more this weekend. They will travel down past the Mason-Dixie line, taking on Liberty University this Saturday afternoon.
Despite high confidence and hopes, Princeton men’s basketball (22-7 overall) fell to Virginia Tech (20-14) in overtime by a score of 81-86. The loss eliminates the Tigers from the annual National Invitation Tournament, officially commencing the off-season.
It’s been a year full of amazing highs for the Tigers, but they were dealt a critical blow this weekend.
This Friday and Saturday the men’s basketball team hosted Ivy rivals, Columbia and Cornell, for a conference double-header. The Tigers managed to grab two crucial wins from the meetings, beating Columbia 88-83 and Cornell 74-60. This improved Princeton to an eight-game winning streak and a 10-1 record in the Ancient Eight.
With the conclusion of this weekend, the Tigers have now earned five straight wins. These last two, however, might just be the sweetest of them all.
With the Ivy league season at its halfway point, the Princeton men’s basketball team (16-5 overall, 6-1 Ivy) faces a crucial weekend as they push forward in their bid for the league title and an NCAA tournament berth. Currently finding themselves with sole possession of second place in the league standings after a huge win over Columbia, the Tigers will face first-place Yale (17-5, 8-0) at Jadwin Gymnasium on Friday in what will be their most important game of the year so far. After facing the Bulldogs, who handed Princeton their only league loss earlier in the season, the Tigers host a struggling Brown squad (7-15, 2-6), which they beat soundly in their first meeting this year.
