When Princeton takes the field Saturday night against Cornell in a key Ivy League game, it will do so with two of the 25 nominees for the Tewaaraton Trophy. A third nominee will be wearing red.
Tom Schreiber, the first Princeton player in eight years to reach 50 points, and Tyler Fiorito, second in Division I in save percentage, were both named to the list of Tewaaraton Trophy nominees.
The list of 25 men and 25 women will be cut to 10 finalists, five men and five women. The winners will be announced on May 31.
Cornell's Roy Lang is the only other Ivy League nominee.
Schreiber leads Princeton in both goals (29) and assists (21), and he is the first Princeton player with 50 points in a season since Ryan Boyle in 2004. With one more goal, the sophomore would become the fifth player in school history - and second in the last 30 years - with at least 30 goals and at least 20 assists in the same season.
Fiorito is second in Division I with a .622 save percentage and third in goals-against with a 6.44. His numbers in Ivy League games are even more impressive at .711 save percentage and 4.83 goals-against.
Princeton hosts Cornell Saturday night at 7, and the winner will host the Ivy League tournament next weekend. Princeton is already assured of at least a share of the Ivy title, and a win would give the Tigers the outright championship. A Cornell win would mean co-champions.
