Though Harvard's program NCAA drought is much longer than Princeton's, whichever team wins will send its current players to the NCAA Tournament for the first time. Harvard has not been to the tournament since 1946 in its only appearance, while Princeton made its 23rd NCAA appearance in 2004. The recent rise of both programs has been similar, as Princeton went 6-23 and Harvard went 8-22 in 2007-08. Both programs made the postseason in 2010, Harvard to the CollegeInsider.com tournament and Princeton to the College Basketball Invitational.

 

Tigers in the Ivy Playoff

What would an Ivy League men's basketball playoff be without the Princeton Tigers? The 2011 playoff is the eighth in Ivy history, and Princeton has been involved in all eight. The Tigers' record in those games is 3-4, but the only people at court level Saturday who were present at any of those games have a 1-0 record in Ivy playoffs.

Sydney Johnson and Brian Earl were a junior and freshman, respectively, on the 1996 Princeton team that had losses only to Penn during the Ivy season, finishing 12-2 like this year's Princeton team. Like this year's Harvard team, Penn's only losses were two close ones on the road, by one point at Dartmouth and two points at Yale. And like this year's Princeton team, those Tigers had the chance to knock out their potential playoff opponent on that foe's home floor before coming up short. Those Tigers lost 63-49 at The Palestra just four days before ending an eight-game losing streak to Penn with a 63-56 OT win at Lehigh against the Quakers. The 1996 playoff win was an emotional one for the Tigers, who had just learned that Pete Carril would retire at season's end. Princeton, of course, went on to knock off defending champion UCLA in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Indianapolis.

The previous Ivy League playoffs were:
Mar. 7, 1959: Dartmouth 69, Princeton 68 (at Yale)
Mar. 8, 1963: Princeton 65, Yale 54 (at Fordham)
Mar. 5, 1968: Columbia 92, Princeton 74 (at St. John's)
Mar. 4, 1980: Penn 50, Princeton 49 (at Lafayette)
Mar. 10, 1981: Princeton 54, Penn 50 (at Lafayette)
Mar. 9, 1996: Princeton 63, Penn 56, OT (at Lehigh)
Mar. 7, 2002: Yale 76, Princeton 60 (at Penn)
Mar. 9, 2002: Penn 77, Yale 58 (at Lafayette)

In six of the previous seven Ivy League playoff games involving Princeton, the team that lost the second meeting of the year won the playoff game. The only year that wasn't true was 1963, when Princeton won the second meeting and followed it up with a playoff victory over Yale.

Last Time Out

Princeton won its third straight game at The Palestra Tuesday night, 70-58. The win gave Princeton its 26th Ivy League title, the most of any Ivy League school and the fourth-most conference championships of any men's basketball program in the country. Kentucky has 44, UCLA has 30 and North Carolina has 28.

Princeton put up some big points in the second half at Penn Tuesday. The Tigers scored 51 points after the break, all in a span of 17:48, while making 14 of 17 field goals during that span. The 51 points represented the largest Princeton total in a half against a Division I team since at least the 1996-97 season. The Princeton record for points in a half is 68, set in 1967 against Dartmouth.

The outburst of offense came after the Tigers were stagnant on that end in the opening half, hitting just 28% of their attempts (7 of 25) as Penn took a 23-19 lead into the break. Penn shot 42.1% (8 of 19) in the first 20 minutes.

Kareem Maddox was a big contributor to the 51-point second half, scoring 21 of his 23 points after the break while also notching all five of his assists in the second half. Ian Hummer also had 12 of his 14 points in the second half.

24-6, 12-2 Ivy

This year's Tigers are tied with Sydney Johnson's senior-year team in 1997 as well as the 1991 team with 24 wins, the third-highest total in program history. Next up would be the 25-win team from 1967, followed by the record-holding 27-2 team from 1998 that earned a No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament and advanced to the second round. That 1998 Tiger team was the last Ivy squad to win an NCAA Tournament game until last season.

These Tigers are the 19th Princeton team to finish the Ivy League season 12-2 or better. Of the previous 18, 14, including the last 10, advanced to the NCAA Tournament (1964, '65, '67, '69, '76, '77, '81, '83, '91, '92, '96, '97, '98, '04). Two others (1972, 1975) advanced to the NIT, while two others (1959, 1968) lost in Ivy League playoffs to cap their seasons. 

If Princeton is able to win the Ivy playoff, the NCAA bid would be Princeton's 24th, all since 1952. That would untie Princeton with Penn, which has made it to the Big Dance 23 times.

The playoff, Princeton's 31st game, will tie it with last season (22-9) for the most games played in a single campaign. If Princeton gets a postseason bid of any type, it would set the Princeton single-season record for games for a second straight year.

Princeton's back-to-back 20-win seasons (22-9 in 2009-10) are its first since the 1998 and 1999 seasons.

Following a 2-4 start to the 2009-10 season, Princeton has won 44 of its last 55 games. Following a 2-3 start to this season, Princeton has won 22 of its last 25 games. Two of Princeton's three early losses this season, to James Madison (one) and Presbyterian (two) came by a combined three points.

Against Harvard

The results from Princeton's regular-season meetings with Harvard support the Crimson's season-long trend of shooting much better at home than away from Lavietes Pavilion. Harvard shot 51.8% at Lavietes on its way to a 14-0 season there, while the Crimson shot 43.7% in its 14 games on the road, where it went 9-5. Harvard did not have any neutral-site games this season.

Princeton's home-road/neutral split is much less of a difference than Harvard's. The Tigers were 47.4% shooters on the way to a 12-0 season in Jadwin Gym while shooting 46.1% in a 12-6 season away from Jadwin Gym including three neutral-site (2-1) games.

Harvard's six best shooting percentages, including the Princeton game from March 5 (60.0%), have come at home. Harvard's six lowest shooting percentages, including the game at Princeton on Feb. 4 (43.8%) have all come on the road. The Crimson are an impressive 22-0 this season when shooting greater than 44.0%. Otherwise, Harvard is 1-5, including the game at Princeton.

Kareem Maddox (14, 14), Dan Mavraides (15, 25) and Ian Hummer (17, 12) reached double digits in points in both games against the Crimson this season. No other player reached double digits once. Eight points each from Douglas Davis and Mack Darrow in the game at Jadwin was the closest anyone else came to 10 points.

Skewed by the Crimson's 60% night at Lavietes last Saturday, Harvard is outshooting Princeton 51.1% to 42.0% in the two meetings combined this season. Princeton has held Harvard to 29.2% (7 of 24) from beyond the arc while making 35.5% (11 of 31) for itself. The teams are tied in rebounding at 29.5 per game, while Princeton has forced more turnovers, 26-20, and blocked more shots 14-7. The Crimson have the higher average in points, 70-66.

Princeton was down at halftime by a point in each of the two games. In the first game at Jadwin, but Douglas Davis nailed a 3-pointer just 18 seconds into the second half and Princeton never trailed again. The Tigers opened the half with a 14-2 run to build an 11-point lead. At Lavietes, a 14-8 run over the first four minutes of the second half was enough to give the Crimson a seven-point lead, and the Tigers were never again closer than four points.

Princeton committed 23 fouls at Harvard, tying with three other games for a season-high total. The Tigers committed 18 fouls in the home game against Harvard, much closer to the team's average of 17.4 fouls per game.

Jadwin Gym Success

Princeton wrapped up a 12-0 home schedule, tying these Tigers with the 1990 and 1998 teams for the most games won in Jadwin without a loss in a single season. The 2010-11 Tigers are the sixth team in the 42 full seasons of Jadwin Gym to complete the slate without a loss, following the 1975 (10-0), 1977 (11-0), 1990 (12-0), 1991 (9-0) and 1998 (12-0) teams.

It has been more than a full calendar year without a home loss for Princeton, which last lost in Jadwin on Feb. 20, 2010 to Brown. Through Wednesday's games, Princeton's 16-game Jadwin winning streak is tied for the 13th-longest active home winning streak in Division I. Duke holds the longest streak at 36 games, followed by Kentucky at 34 and Utah State at 31.

The 16-game home winning streak is Princeton's longest since the Tigers won 22 in a row from Jan. 6, 1997 to Dec. 9, 1998. It is tied for the fourth-longest winning streak in Jadwin Gym history, alongside a 16-gamer from 1973-75, and behind an 18-gamer from 1976-78, the 22-gamer from 1997-98 and a 28-gamer from 1989-91.

Historical Notes

After getting his fifth double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds at Brown on Feb. 19, Ian Hummer is the first Princeton player since Bob Roma '79 in 1979 to have five double-doubles in one season. Andy Rimol '74, with seven in 1974, was the last Princeton player with more than five.

As far as fellow sophomores getting five double-doubles, Ian Hummer has the most since Andy Rimol had five in 1972, while Chris Thomforde '69 is next on the list chronologically with 11 in 1967.

Ian Hummer still has a way to go to reach his family record for double-doubles in a season, as uncle John Hummer '70 had nine as a senior, while father Ed Hummer '67 had a high of six in 1966 as a junior.

Sydney Johnson '97 is now the fifth Princeton coach in history to have at least two 20-win seasons. Albert Wittmer (1923-32) also had two, while Bill Carmody (1996-00) and Butch van Breda Kolff '45 (1962-67) had three apiece and Pete Carril (1967-96) had 10.

Individual Milestones

While Douglas Davis reached 1,000 points in the first meeting against Penn, Dan Mavraides crossed the mark with his 25-point game at Harvard Saturday. Mavraides is the 28th member of the Princeton 1,000-point club and is now in 27th place at 1,029, while Davis is in 18th place at 1,082. Next up for Mavraides is Ian Hummer's uncle John Hummer '70 at 1,031, while Davis has Carl Belz '59 (1,088) and Judson Wallace '05 (1,090) ahead of him.

Who is the next likeliest member of Princeton's 1,000-point club? Though senior Kareem Maddox is closest by the numbers at 800, sophomore Ian Hummer is the next on pace, now with 631.

Kareem Maddox's block numbers have increased each season, from nine as a freshman to 16 as a sophomore, then 27 as a junior and already 52 this season for a career total of 104. Maddox is the third Tiger since the block stat began being recorded regularly in 1975-76 to record 100 career blocks, alongside Chris Young '02 (145) and Rick Hielscher '95 (159).

Maddox's 52 blocks this season have him behind only Chris Young '02, who had 55 blocks as a rookie in 1998-99 and 90 as a sophomore in 1999-00 before signing a baseball contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates, ending his eligibility. Young is now a New York Met.

Douglas Davis stands fourth on the career 3-point list at 191 with still a way to go to pass Gabe Lewullis '99 (212). Sean Jackson '92 (235) and current assistant coach Brian Earl '99 (281) are the only two beyond 212. Dan Mavraides is fifth on the list at 163 with no one between him and Davis.

Douglas Davis is one of five Princeton players in the 25 years the rule has been in place to hit 50 3-pointers in each of three seasons, along with Sean Jackson '92, Gabe Lewullis '99, Brian Earl '99 and Kyle Koncz '08. Next year, he could join Earl as the only Tiger to hit 50 in all four seasons. Dan Mavraides, with two such seasons, is the seventh Tiger with multiple 50 3-pointer seasons.

Davis and Mavraides are fourth and seventh respectively on the school's career list of 3-pointers attempted. Davis (479) is behind Sean Jackson '92 (501), while next up for Mavraides (421) is former teammate Kyle Koncz '08 (438). Current assistant coach Brian Earl '99 is the leader at 675.

Princeton in the Ivy and NCAA Rankings

Princeton has no individual leaders in any Ivy all-season rankings but leads the league as a team in scoring defense (63.2 ppg), in field goal percentage defense (.419), in 3-point field goal percentage defense (.324) and in rebounding margin (+3.9).

Among conference-only games, Princeton had the best scoring defense in the Ivy League at 60.1 ppg, the lowest field goal percentage allowed both overall (.412) and from 3-point range (.297), the biggest per-game rebounding margin (+5.9) and the highest offensive (.327) and defensive rebound percentages (.754).

In the NCAA rankings released prior to Monday's games, Princeton's top national ranking other than winning percentage (23rd, .793) was in field goal percentage (41st, .466). Ian Hummer held Princeton's top individual ranking, in field goal percentage (29th, .557).

Tiger Trends

Princeton is 15-0 when it shoots better than 46.0% from the field this season.

Princeton is 8-0 when it shoots 42% or better from beyond the arc.

Princeton is 13-0 this season when opponents shoot 40% or lower from the field.

Princeton is 19-0 when opponents shoot 36% or lower from distance.

Princeton is 11-0 this season when holding opponents to fewer than 10 assists.

The magic number on the scoreboard for Princeton this season has been 68. The Tigers are 15-0 this season when they score 68 points. Princeton is also 18-0 when opponents score 64 or fewer points.

Princeton is 14-0 this season when an opponent has not reached 28 points by halftime.

The Tigers are 18-2 when leading at the half, 5-4 when trailing and 1-0 when tied. The comebacks include: Siena (down four, won by nine in OT), Tulsa (down one, won by four in double OT), home vs. Harvard (down one, won by four), home vs. Columbia (down one, won by five), and at Penn (down four, won by 12). The givebacks include James Madison (up by 13, lost by one) and UCF (up by eight, lost by six).

Rebounding has not had a perfect correlation to victory for the Tigers this season, who are 8-2 when they get outrebounded and 17-3 when they win the battle of the boards.

Princeton has four players averaging double-figure points, with Kareem Maddox at 14.0, Ian Hummer at 13.9, Dan Mavraides at 12.7, and Douglas Davis at 11.8. Princeton has not had four players finish a season in double figures since 2003, when four starters, including current San Diego Padres outfielder Will Venable '05, did so.

Excluding senior night, Princeton has used three starting lineups this season. Dan Mavraides has started all 30 games, while Ian Hummer and Douglas Davis started all 29 except for senior night, Brendan Connolly started the first 29 before Will Barrett started last time out at Penn, and Patrick Saunders has started the last 27 after Kareem Maddox held that spot for the first three contests. The senior night lineup included Mavraides, Maddox, Connolly, Saunders and Bobby Foley.

If It Happens...

The Tigers set a program record with four OT victories in one season when they beat Penn 62-59 on Feb. 8. This team is the fifth Tiger program to play in at least four OT games, alongside 1978-79, 1994-95 and 1998-99. The record for OT games in one season belongs to the 1980-81 Tigers, who played in five.

If Kareem Maddox scores 30 points again this season, he would join Bill Bradley '65, Geoff Petrie '70 and Brian Taylor '84 as the only Tigers in program history with three 30-point games in a season. He is the only Ivy Leaguer with two 30-point games this season (31 at Tulsa, 30 vs. Siena), and he is the first Tiger with two 30-point games in a season since Kevin Mullin '84.

Princeton has had five players scoring in double-figures in four games this season, against Marist, Towson, Monmouth and Saint Joseph's. It is the first time Princeton has had five players reach double figures in as many as four games since the 1973-74 season. The 1971-72 season was the last time Princeton had five such games. The 1967-68 team holds the record with nine such games.

Princeton has had as many as six players reach double figures in a game three times, in 1956, 1967 and 2000. The 2000 game, coming Mar. 4 against Brown, is the only time in program history Princeton had seven players in double figures.

Princeton's last game in which two players each had a double-double came on March 2, 1974 at Columbia. Barnes Hauptfuhrer (14 pts., 12 reb.) and Andy Rimol (21 pts., 11 reb.) performed the feat that day, and Ian Hummer and Kareem Maddox have come close this season.

Coach Sydney Johnson

Sydney Johnson (2007-) will pass Bill Carmody (1996-00) at the playoff, coaching his 118th game at Princeton, good for fifth-place on the school's list of games coached and the highest number since Pete Carril (1967-96) at 775. Carmody coached Johnson in his final season as a Tiger player after Carril coached his first three. The rest of the list includes Franklin "Cappy" Cappon (1938-43, 46-61) at 431, Albert Wittmer (1923-32) at 201, Frederick Leuhring (1912-20) at 143, Butch van Breda Kolff '45 (1962-67) at 134 and Carmody at 117.

Johnson has 65 victories as Princeton's head coach, good for eighth on the program's list. Up next is John Thompson III '88 at 68.

Johnson is the third-longest tenured coach in the Ivy League, one week short of Harvard's Tommy Amaker, with both men in their fourth seasons at their current schools. Yale's James Jones is the Ivy dean, in his 12th season.

Since the beginning of calendar year 2009, Johnson's record is 57-21.

Johnson is one of five Princeton alumni who are currently Division I head coaches, all disciples of Pete Carril. The other four are Chris Mooney '94 (Richmond), John Thompson III '88 (Georgetown), Joe Scott '87 (Denver) and Craig Robinson '83 (Oregon State). Princeton is tied with Indiana, and behind North Carolina (seven), for the second-most active Division I head coaches produced.

"MARV" and "CRUNCH"

Princeton's "MARV" patches are in honor of Marvin Bressler, the late professor who came to Princeton in 1963 and began serving in an informal advisor role with the team. He was an inspiration to create the Academic-Athletic Fellows program that serves all Princeton teams. Bressler was an Academic-Athletic Fellow for men's basketball through the 2009-10 season before he passed away on July 7, 2010 at age 87.

The "CRUNCH" patches on Princeton's warmups are in honor of Christian "Crunch" Regulski, an 11-year-old boy who passed away on Feb. 10, 2011. "Crunch" was connected with the Tigers through the Friends of Jaclyn organization that links children living with brain tumors to supportive local sports teams.
