So far this season:

The Tigers have won eight of their last 10 games after enduring a 1-5 start. The two losses during the recent successful stretch each came by four points on the road to a team that has been successful of late after its own rough start. Siena (7-8) has won four of its last five entering Thursday, and Drexel (10-5) has won eight of its last nine entering Thursday.

Because of how the academic and everyday calendars fall this year, Princeton is playing Ivy League games before the finals break for the first time since the 2005-06 season. This was a regularity through the 1998-99 season but has happened only five times since.

For the first time since the 1983-84 season, the Tigers will begin Ivy League play with five road games. That year, the Tigers went 3-2 over the first five and won the Ivy title at 10-4.

Every current Tiger has started at least 4-0 annually in Ivy League play. Two of the first Ivy weekends in those years were on the road, but neither at Cornell-Columbia. Princeton has not begun the league slate with the New York trip since 2007, and not with Cornell first on the road since 2000.

Princeton is on a stretch in which it will play 12 straight Division I opponents on their home floors, something the program has never done. In all, Princeton will travel more than 3,900 miles to complete the 12-game road stretch.

The last five games of Princeton's 12-game road stretch against D-I foes are Ivy games determined by the Ivy League. That means Princeton will have 7 of 9 games at home to close the regular season.

In the 14 Princeton games this season in which at least one team has reached 60 points, the first team to reach 60 is 12-2, with the two exceptions both being OT games. Rider reached 60 first in its 72-71 OT loss to the Tigers on Dec. 14, and FSU reached 60 first in its 75-73 3OT loss to Princeton on Dec. 30.

Princeton has increased its field goal percentage in each of the last three games, shooting 53.7 percent from the floor last time out against TCNJ.

Princeton has hit at least 40 percent from beyond the arc in five of the last six games after doing so in only two of the first 10 games.

Princeton has been scoring more points of late as well. Over the first 10 games, Princeton never reached 70 points. Over the last six games, the Tigers have failed to reach 70 points only once.

Getting production on offense from players in addition to Ian Hummer and Douglas Davis has been key to the Tigers' recent success. Over the 1-5 start, Princeton had only three occasions of players other than Davis and Hummer reaching 10 points, an average of 0.6 times per game. In the 10 games since, other players have reached 10 points on 13 occasions, an average of 1.3 times per game.

Princeton is in the process of turning around a slow start in hopes of a strong finish. That pattern has happened more often than not in the last decade-plus:
2011-12: 1-5 start, has won 8 of last 10
2010-11: 2-3 start, won 23 of last 27, 12-2 Ivy champions
2009-10: 2-4 start, won 20 of last 25, 11-3 2nd Ivy
2008-09: 2-8 start, won 11 of last 17, 8-6 T-2nd Ivy (team was 6-23 overall/3-11 Ivy in '07-'08)
2005-06: 3-12 start, won 9 of last 12, 10-4 2nd Ivy
2003-04: 6-6 start, won 14 of last 16, 13-1 Ivy champions
2002-03: 4-7 start, won 12 of last 16, 10-4 3rd Ivy
2001-02: 3-7 start, won 13 of last 18, 11-3 Ivy champions
2000-01: 4-7 start, won 12 of last 16, 11-3 Ivy champions
1999-00: 1-4 start, won 18 of last 25, 11-3 2nd Ivy
1998-99: 5-4 start, won 17 of last 21, 11-3 2nd Ivy


Princeton has out-assisted its opponents 14.3 apg to 8.9 apg this season.


The Tigers have tried almost twice as many 3-pointers as their foes this season, 337-180. That has translated to an average of 10 more 3-pointers tried per game for Princeton than its opponents.

Since Mack Darrow joined the starting lineup, Princeton has gone on its 8-of-10 winning run and the current starting five has remained intact. It is the third starting lineup Princeton has used this season, as Darrow replaced Brendan Connolly soon after Patrick Saunders replaced Will Barrett.

Entering Wednesday's games, Princeton's highest ranking in the Ivy League was third in scoring defense (61.7 ppg), rebounding offense (34.8 rpg), blocks (3.5 bpg), assist-to-turnover ratio (1:1), offensive rebounds (9.9 orpg), and defensive rebounds (24.9 drpg). The Tigers are eighth in free throw percentage at 62.9 percent.

Three of the Ivy's top six scorers will be on the court Saturday, with Ian Hummer (3rd, 17.9 ppg), Douglas Davis (6th, 13.8 ppg) and Columbia's Brian Barbour (5th, 14.3 ppg). Three of the top seven will be on the court Friday, with Hummer, Davis and Cornell's Drew Ferry (7th, 13.8 ppg).

The two top 3-point scorers in the Ivy will go head-to-head Friday, with Cornell's Drew Ferry leading the league at 3.8 3s per game (53 overall) and Douglas Davis second at 3.0 3s per game (48 overall).

Mack Darrow is the league leader in assist-to-turnover ratio at 2.9 helpers per giveaway (40 a/14 t). He has only had a negative assist-to-turnover ratio in two of the 16 games this season.

No Tiger has led the Ivy League in scoring since Brian Taylor '84 in 1972 (26.2 ppg, Taylor entered with the Class of '73) and no Tiger has led the Ivy in rebounding since Bill Bradley '65 in 1964 (13.0 rpg).

On the dunk tote board this season, Denton Koon and Ian Hummer co-lead the team with seven slams. Brendan Connolly has three and Will Barrett has one.

Princeton is 6-2 when leading at the half this season and 3-5 when trailing. The Tigers are 2-0 in overtime this season.

Princeton has a seven-game winning streak going in overtime games, the program's longest since winning 10 straight OT games from 1951-61. The youngest three classes on this Tiger team have not lost an OT game. The two streaks are the two longest in program history.

Princeton is 23-5 in the Ivy League over the last two seasons. Three of those losses (Cornell twice in 2010, Harvard once in 2011) came to eventual Ivy champions, while the other two were against Brown.

During its 8-of-10 winning run, Princeton has outshot its opponents from the field 46.3 percent to 40.5 percent.


Against Cornell & Columbia:

Last season, Princeton swept Cornell for the first time since 2004. The win at Newman Arena, 57-55 on Feb. 12, 2011, broke a four-game road losing streak for the Tigers against the Big Red.

Princeton has swept each of the last two seasons against Columbia. Prior to last season, the Tigers hadn't swept the four-game series against the New York schools since 2004, which had also been the last of three straight times Princeton swept the road swing to Columbia and Cornell.

Princeton will be facing the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the Ivy League in field goal percentage defense in Columbia (.389) and Cornell (.412), heading into Wednesday's games.

Princeton, Cornell and Columbia have fired up the most 3-point attempts in the Ivy League this season, with Cornell at 346, Princeton at 337 and Columbia at 335. The Lions lead the Ivy in 3FG percentage at .376, while Princeton is sixth at .350 and Cornell eighth at .344.

Cornell and Columbia also bury the most 3s per game of any team in the conference, Cornell at an Ivy-best 8.5 3s per game and Columbia next at 7.9. Princeton is fifth at 7.4.

Cornell leads the Ivy League in 3FG percentage defense, allowing their opponents to make only 26.8 percent of their 3s, bettering second-place Harvard's 32.1 percentage yield by a considerable margin. Princeton is sixth in that category at .350 and Columbia third at .322.

Princeton appears to have a significant rebounding advantage on the Big Red, who are being outrebounded by an average of 8.3 boards per game, but not on the Lions. Princeton is winning the rebounding battle by an average of 0.9 bpg against its foes, while Columbia betters that to 1.7 bpg.

Both Cornell and Columbia are in the top half of the Ivy in steals and turnover margin. Cornell leads the Ivy in both at 8.3 spg and a +1.71 turnover margin, while Columbia is tied with Penn for second in both, at 7.2 spg and +0.69. Princeton is fifth in both, at 6.5 spg and -0.56.

Both Princeton and Cornell lost significant contributors from last year's meeting in Newman Arena. The Tigers graduated 23 of their 57 points, all from Kareem Maddox, who had the game's final points and a block of Mark Coury's shot on Cornell's last possession. Drew Ferry recovered the block and missed a 3-pointer as time ran out. Cornell lost Coury (10 points) and Errick Peck (13 points) has not played this season due to injury. The Big Red return Chris Wroblewski, the senior point guard who had 14 points and a game-high four assists in that game.

Princeton outshot Cornell in last year's game at Newman 47.6 percent to 39.2 percent and outrebounded the Big Red 31-24, helping make up for 18 turnovers to nine for Cornell.

In the meeting with Cornell two weeks later in Jadwin Gym, Princeton rode its "big four" from a year ago to victory, as Ian Hummer (20), Dan Mavraides (17), Douglas Davis (15) and Kareem Maddox (13) all scored in double digits in the 84-66 win. Princeton outshot Cornell 62.3 percent to 37.0 percent from teh field and outrebounded the Red 34-27, again giving up more turnovers, 14-11. For Cornell, Coury was again in double figures with 13 points while Wroblewski matched his 14 points from the first meeting and Drew Ferry added 10.

Last year's game at Levien Gym saw Ian Hummer set his career high with 25 points, making it a double-double with 12 boards as Princeton outshot the Lions 56.9 percent to 27.6 percent in a 76-46 win. Mavraides (17), Davis and Maddox (10 each) joined Hummer in double-figure points, while Noruwa Agho, who was injured early this season and has not played since, had 16 points for the Lions. Princeton outrebounded Columbia 42-32 in the win.

The return meeting in Jadwin Gym was much closer, as double-figure scoring from Maddox (20), Mavraides (14, all in the second half), Hummer (11) and Mack Darrow (10) helped the Tigers to a 66-61 win two weeks later. Agho again had double figures for the Lions, with 21 points, while Brian Barbour, who leads the Lions in scoring this season, had 18. The teams were also close from the floor, with Columbia outshooting the Tigers 40.4 to 40.0 percent, and outrebounding Princeton 35-33. Princeton helped neutralize that with eight turnovers to Columbia's 12 and taking advantage from the free-throw line, hitting 23 of 29 to Columbia's 17 of 24.

Milestones:

Ian Hummer stands at 942 career points in his quest for 1,000. He would become the third Princeton player since freshman eligibility began in the '78-'79 season to reach the 1,000 mark as a junior, after Kit Mueller '91 in 1990 and Douglas Davis last year. Having already passed his father, Ed '67 (786) in career scoring this season, Hummer is also on pace to catch his uncle John '70 (1,031).

Hummer could also catch his father for 10th place in career rebounds this season. Ian has 438 boards so far, while his father Ed finished with 550.

Hummer had his fourth double-double of the season against FSU, ahead of his double-double pace from last season. Hummer recorded his fourth of five double-doubles in 2010-11 in the 22nd game of the season.

Douglas Davis is in seventh place on the Princeton career scoring list at 1,331 points. Next up is Bob Scrabis '89 at 1,365, followed by current assistant coach Brian Earl '99 at 1,428, the last Princeton player to score as many as Davis.

Davis is aiming to become only the second Tiger, after assistant coach Brian Earl '99, since the 3-point line came to be 25 years ago to have four seasons of at least 50 3-pointers made. Davis has 48 this season.

Davis is in second place in Princeton history in 3-pointers made with 241. Only Brian Earl '99 (281) is ahead of him on that list. Davis is sixth on the Ivy League list for career 3-pointers. Next up are Dartmouth's Jim Barton (242, 1986-89), Penn's Matt Maloney (244, 1992-95), and Penn's Tim Begley (253, 2001-05).

Davis played his 106th career game last weekend against TCNJ. If he plays every game the rest of the regular season, he will finish at 120 career games, surpassing Brian Earl's program record of 116 games played.

Davis is ninth in program history in field goals made at 468 with Steve Goodrich '98 (470) and Bob Scrabis '89 (475) next up. He is already in fifth place all-time in field goals attempted at 1,118. Geoff Petrie '70 is in fourth place at 1,172.

Entering the season:

Princeton is coming off its 26th Ivy League championship (55 seasons) and 24th NCAA Tournament appearance (all since 1952), both Ivy League record totals.

Height dominates the Tiger roster this season, as the average height is 6-foot-7. Nine of the 17 players are 6-foot-8 or taller. No other Ivy League team has more than six players at 6-foot-8 (Columbia).

Princeton's 25 wins last season tied for the second-most in program history and the most since the 1997-98 team, which included current coaches Mitch Henderson '98 and Brian Earl '99, went 27-2.

Mitch Henderson '98, the team's Franklin C. Cappon-Edward G. Green '40 head coach, is the 29th man to hold the job and the fourth consecutive alumnus to do so (John Thompson III '88, Joe Scott '87, Sydney Johnson '97).

Henderson, who played in three NCAA Tournaments for Princeton, spent 11 years at Northwestern under one of his former coaches at Princeton, Bill Carmody, as an assistant coach.

Princeton is second to North Carolina in alumni as active Division I head coaches. Eight Tar Heels are roaming the sidelines, while six Tigers are doing so: Thompson III '88 (Georgetown), Scott '87 (Denver), Johnson '97 (Fairfield), Henderson '98 (Princeton), Chris Mooney '94 (Richmond) and Craig Robinson '83 (Oregon State).

There are 11 Ivy League alumni as current Division I head coaches, and Princeton has six. Four of the others are from Penn (Fran McCaffery, Iowa; Matt Langel, Colgate; Andrew Toole, Robert Morris; Jerome Allen, Penn) along with Jeff Jackson from Cornell (Furman).

Princeton is looking to make up for its largest offensive loss to graduation since the 2007-08 to 2008-09 seasons, when the Tigers did not return 57 percent of their offense. From 2008-09 to 2009-10, the loss was just six percent. From 2009-10 to 2010-11, the loss was 25 percent. Now from 2010-11 to 2011-12, the loss is 39 percent. Princeton will be looking to replace the 2011 Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year forward Kareem Maddox and second-team All-Ivy honoree forward Dan Mavraides.

Princeton has increased its win total over three consecutive offseasons, in 2008 (six to 13), 2009 (13 to 22) and 2010 (22 to 25). The last time Princeton had three such offseasons was 1995-97. The last time Princeton had a longer streak was six offseasons, from 1985-90.

Princeton's 59-57 NCAA Tournament loss to Kentucky, which went on to the national semifinal, was the closest the Tigers have come to winning an NCAA Tournament game since its last victory, a 69-57 triumph over UNLV in 1998. It was the closest Princeton NCAA Tournament game, win or lose, since the 1996 win over UCLA (43-41).

Princeton has made the postseason in each of the last two years, advancing to the College Basketball Invitational semifinal in 2010 before the NCAA Tournament last season. Princeton made the postseason annually from 1996-2002 and then only once from 2003-09, in the 2004 NCAAs.

Princeton led the Ivy League last season in scoring defense (63.0 ppg), field goal percentage defense (.330), rebounding margin (+4.1 rpg) and defensive rebounding percentage (.732).

Princeton was picked second in the Ivy League in the preseason media poll, tied with Yale and with Harvard in first place.


On Cornell: Friday's game will feature the last two Ivy League teams to play in the NCAA Tournament, and each played Kentucky in their most recent NCAA Tournament game ... the Big Red are 2-0 this season when they win the rebounding battle, defeating Lehigh and Albany ... Cornell has been called for more fouls than its opponent in six straight games ... nine Red players have started a game this season, and 6-2 senior guard Drew Ferry and 6-0 senior guard Chris Wroblewski are hte only ones to have started all 14 games ... Ferry is the team's leading scorer at 13.8 ppg, while 6-7 freshman forward Shonn Miller leads the team at 6.3 rebounds per game and Wroblewski is the top assist man at 78 on the season and 5.6/game ... 6-8 junior forward Eitan Chemerinski leads the league in field goal percentage at .656 but has few attempts (64) compared to the rest of the Ivy top 10, which averages 154 attempts on the season ... Ferry leads the Ivy in 3FG percentage, hitting 44.2 percent of his tries, while also leading the league in 3-pointers mafe at 3.8 per game ... Chemerinski had four double-figure scoring games over the first five contests but just one over the last nine games ... 6-9 junior forward Josh Figini had four double-figure scoring games over mid-December but none over the last five contests ... the Red are 5-0 when they reach 70 points and 0-9 when they do not.

On Columbia: The fivesome of 6-1 junior Brian Barbour, 6-3 sophomore guard Meiko Lyles, 6-9 junior center Mark Cisco, 6-7 freshman forward Alex Rosenberg and 6-8 junior forward John Daniels combined to account for 71 of the 80 starts over the team's first 16 games ... the Lions are bettering their opponents in field goal percentage (41.9 percent to 38.9 percent), 3FG percentage (37.6 percent to 32.2 percent), free throw percentage (70.9 percent to 68.2 percent), rebounding (36.4 to 34.7 rpg), steals (115 to 88) and points per game (65.7 to 58.6) ... the Lions have won 11 of their last 12 games after starting the season 0-4 ... Columbia has shot 43 percent or better from the field in each of the last four games ... Lyles has had two 20+-point games this season, both coming in January against Fairleigh Dickinson (25) and Colgate (21) ... the Lions are the only school in the Ivy with two players in the league's top eight in rebounding this season, with Cisco at 6.6 rpg and Daniels at 6.1 ... Barbour ranks in the top five in the Ivy in scoring (5th, 14.3 ppg), free throw percentage (3rd, .890) and minutes (3rd, 33.9 mpg) ... Lyles is also averaging double-figure points (10.6).
