Princeton has its sights set on a 17th Ivy League championship this weekend, though there is still some work to be done. The biggest test in the league season will come Friday night, when a dangerous Cornell team will host the Tigers at the Belkin Squash Courts.

The top-ranked Princeton Tigers need just one more Ivy win to clinch at least a share of the league crown, and a sweep of both Cornell and Columbia will earn Princeton an outright title. Besides going for their 17th titles overall, the Tigers are competing for their ninth title over the last 14 seasons.

Princeton is 8-0 on the season, 4-0 in the Ivy League, and has won 15 straight matches dating back to last season. The Tigers have taken on some of the nation's best teams, including a 5-4 home victory over No. 3 Harvard and a 6-3 road win at No. 4 Yale last weekend.

Cornell is 13-3 overall, 3-2 in the Ivy League, and has produced some impressive results over the last few weeks. The Big Red jumped a spot in the rankings with a 6-3 home win over Rochester, and it took three matches on the road against No. 3 Harvard in a 6-3 Crimson win.

The Big Red is led by senior Nick Sachvie, who met Princeton's Todd Harrity in the 2011 national individual final. Harrity won that title, but Sachvie has looked strong this season with victories over Trinity, Yale and Rochester.

On Sunday, Princeton will take on Columbia in the Ivy League finale at the Jadwin Squash Courts. The Lions are in their second year as an Ivy League program, but they are close to breaking into the national Top 10. The highlight of Sunday's match will come at the No. 1 spot, as Harrity will take on Coulmbia's Ramit Tandon, a 2012 national finalist. Tandon knocked Harrity out of the CSA semifinal last season.

Princeton will take on Western Ontario Saturday at the Belkin Squash Courts.
