43: Princeton tied a program record for 3-point tries in a game with 43, making 17. The total is a program record for a regulation game, as the only other time Princeton tried 43 was in an OT loss against Western Illinois on Dec. 4, 1998. Will Barrett led the team in both makes and tries, going 5 for 8.


T.J. Bray hit a 3-pointer with 16:50 to go to make it 47-29 Princeton after Kean had pulled within 11 points. It was part of an 18-2 run that put the game away for Princeton.


 

• T.J. Bray had three assists to move past head coach Mitch Henderson into fifth place on the school's career assist list, a stat kept since the 1974-75 season. Bray now has 306 career assists, three behind former teammate Ian Hummer '13 at 308.

• Princeton's 43 3-point attempts tied a program record and were the most in regulation for Princeton since the rule came into effect for the 1986-87 season.

• Princeton's 17 3-pointers were one short of its season high of 18 against Pacific on Dec. 20.

• Princeton's .395 clip from beyond the arc was its highest since the Pacific game on Dec. 20 (.462), breaking a four-game string in which Princeton shot no better than .321 from distance.

• Princeton's 21 assists were one off the season high of 22 set against Pacific on Dec. 20.

• Princeton's 84 points were a season high and the most since scoring 95 on Dec. 13, 2012 at Evansville.

• Princeton blocked seven shots, its most since swatting 12 TCNJ attempts in last year's post-finals game.

• Princeton's nine-rebound advantage was its best since outrebounding Fairleigh Dickinson by 15 on Dec. 7.

• Freshmen Henry Caruso, Hashim Moore and Khyan Rayner scored their first career points, Caruso on three free throws, Moore on one free throw and Rayner on a 3-pointer and two free throws.

• Freshman Spencer Weisz's 15 points were two off his season/career best of 17. He tied bests with four assists and three 3-pointers.
