• Princeton will try to continue its best start since the 1997-98 season, when it was 7-0 through seven games. A win would join these Tigers with the '97-'98 team at 7-1 through eight games, but a loss would make Princeton's 6-2 record its best mark through eight games since the 2006-07 season. The '97-'98 team had Mitch Henderson as a senior and was ranked No. 22 in the nation by the AP after its eighth game, which was a 50-42 loss to No. 2 North Carolina.

• Princeton and Rutgers will be meeting for the 120th time. The teams first met in 1917, have played every year since the 1996-97 season and have only missed playing one season (1995-96) since 1945. For much of the 1930s, 40s and 50s, the teams played twice a season, which is how the series is at 120 meetings without quite being a century old.


• Princeton will be aiming for its first back-to-back wins at the RAC since 1997 and 1999.

• In the teams' last meeting, which came on Nov. 16, 2000, Princeton shot a cool 31.9 percent from the field and saw two Rutgers players - Eli Carter (22) and Myles Mack (16) - score more points than any Tiger in a 58-52 Rutgers win. Will Barrett led Princeton with 13 points while Ian Hummer was limited to 10 points. Princeton was 8 of 26 (.308) from distance and didn't help itself from the line, going 14 of 22 (.636). Princeton also couldn't take advantage of 16 Rutgers turnovers to just eight for the Tigers, a stat nullified by Princeton getting routed on the glass, 42-24. T.J. Bray had a game-high eight boards for Princeton.

• The last time these teams got together in Piscataway was on Dec. 7, 2011. Princeton didn't win the battle of the boards then either, losing 37-28, but won the game 59-57. Three Princeton players, including Ian Hummer (21), Douglas Davis (16) and then-rookie Denton Koon (10) had double-figure points, with Hummer and Eli Carter (17) leading their teams for what would turn out to be the first of back-to-back meetings. That won't happen again, obviously, as Hummer and Carter are among the 41.8 percent of points from the 2012-13 meeting not a part of the current teams (Princeton returns 73 percent, Rutgers 44.8 percent).

* Princeton last won the rebounding battle against Rutgers in the 2010 meeting at Jadwin, a 78-72 overtime win (36-28 on the boards). It could happen again, as Rutgers has a +1.5 rebounding edge this season compared to Princeton's +3.9 advantage.

• The RAC has not been a friendly place for Princeton. Since the team's first visit there in 1978, the Tigers are 6-11 against the Scarlet Knights in Piscataway. Princeton's 59-57 win there in Dec. 2011 was the team's first since 1999 and broke a five-game losing streak at the RAC.

• Princeton freshman Spencer Weisz (Florham Park, N.J./Seton Hall Prep) could become the first Tiger from New Jersey to play in a win at Rutgers since current assistant coach Brian Earl '99 (Medford Lakes, N.J./Shawnee) in 1997. Current radio color man Noah Savage '08 (Princeton, N.J./Princeton HS/Hun School) was the last Princetonian from New Jersey to play in a win over Rutgers anywhere, doing so in the Tigers' win over Rutgers in 2004 in Jadwin.

• The last three meetings between Princeton and Rutgers, and six of the last seven meetings, have been decided by six or fewer points.

• The visiting team has won the last two in the series. The home team last prevailed in Princeton's 2010-11 season opener in the Tigers' 58-53 OT win over the Scarlet Knights. Rutgers last defeated Princeton at the RAC on Dec. 3, 2009 by a 58-44 final.

• Rutgers coach Eddie Jordan and Princeton's Hall of Fame former coach Pete Carril overlapped two seasons with the Sacramento Kings from 1996-98, with Jordan as head coach for part of the 1996-97 season and all of 1997-98. Jordan, who went on to serve as head coach of the Washington Wizards for five-plus seasons and the Philadelphia 76ers for one after spending five season as an assistant coach with the New Jersey Nets, became a practicioner of the "Princeton Offense" while working with Carril in Sacramento.

• Jordan was 5-0 against Princeton as a player from 1973-76. During his junior year, Jordan and the No. 3 Scarlet Knights defeated Princeton 54-53 in the NCAA Round of 32 in 1976 on their way to the Final Four. Jordan continued his overall winning record against Princeton during two stints as a Rutgers assistant coach, in 1984 (1-0) and 1988-91 (2-2).

• This will be a meeting of coaches who are leading their alma mater, with Mitch Henderson a Princeton alum and Eddie Jordan a Rutgers alum. It's the third of seven such games for Princeton, after Florida A&M and Butler, with the last four coming in Ivy play against Penn and Brown twice each.

• Princeton assistant coach Brett MacConnell is a 2008 Rutgers alum who was a manager for the Scarlet Knights while a student.


• Rutgers is averaging 8 of 20 from beyond the arc this season, while Princeton is averaging 10 of 25. Just 34.3 percent of Rutgers' field goal tries this season have come from distance, while 49.3 percent of Princeton's have. The teams' success rates both making and defending the 3 stand out, as Princeton makes at a 39 percent clip, better than Rutgers allows at 36 percent, and Princeton allows its opponents 29 percent, lower than Rutgers' connecting on 37 percent of its tries from deep.

• Princeton and Rutgers may be just 23 miles on the road from one's home floor to the other's, but Princeton's and Rutgers' travel arrangements come conference time could hardly be more different. Princeton's furthest trip in conference play is to Dartmouth, at 315 miles on the road. Rutgers furthest trip in AAC play is to Houston, 1400 miles from airport to airport. The spread will be similar next year when the Scarlet Knights move on to the Big Ten, with the most distant Big Ten team, Nebraska, sitting 1180 miles from Newark Airport. Just two of Rutgers' future Big Ten foes, Penn State and Maryland, are closer to Piscataway than Princeton is to Dartmouth. Princeton goes ground to all of its conference games, while Rutgers figures to take to the air for six trips during league play this season.

• When they take the floor next at Penn State Saturday, the Tigers will be looking to defeat a Big Ten foe for the first time since 1985 against Wisconsin. Since then Princeton has come up short in 11 straight against the B1G, including Illinois (0-3), Indiana (0-2), Michigan State (0-2), Minnesota (0-1) and Penn State (0-3). The Tigers don't play Big Ten teams that often, tipping it up for only two such games in the last decade. Those came at Minnesota in 2004 and at Penn State in 2007. The Tigers' last win over the Nittany Lions came in 1970, well before Penn State linked up with the Big Ten. PSU has won the last seven in the series with Princeton after the Tigers won the first three of the first four.

• When Princeton heads to Las Vegas a few days after the Penn State game, it'll be just Princeton's second visit to the Silver State. The other time, Princeton was handled 69-35 by the No. 1 Runnin' Rebels, led by 19 points from Anderson Hunt on Dec. 19, 1990. Future No. 1 pick Larry Johnson, not long before his "Grandmama" days, was one rebound away from a double-double with 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting and a game-high nine boards.


• Princeton is scoring at a rate unseen in more than 40 years so far, as the Tigers' average of 71.3 ppg is its highest through seven games since the 1971-72 season (82.9 ppg). That doesn't figure to decrease Wednesday night, given Rutgers' averages of allowing 75.9 ppg while scoring 77.3. That season is also the last time Princeton scored at least 66 points in each of its first seven games, as it has done this season.

• Princeton has more than doubled its opponents in the number of 3-pointers made this season, canning 69 to 29 for its foes. The Tigers have also tried significantly more than their opponents, though not quite twice as many, 178-100.

• Of Princeton's 361 field goal attempts this season, 178, or 49.3 percent, have been from beyond the arc. Six players have more tries from beyond the arc than from inside, including Will Barrett (33 of 48), Ben Hazel (33-49), Spencer Weisz (20-34), T.J. Bray (16-26), Chris Clement (14-18) and Clay Wilson (5-5).

• Princeton has tried more 3-pointers than its opponents in six of seven games this season. The only game that the opponent tried more was at Butler, when the Bulldogs dialed long distance 24 times (making nine) to Princeton's 20 (eight made).

• Princeton has held its opponent below .400 from beyond the arc in six of seven games this season, with the Lafayette game as the exception. The Leopards made 6 of 11 (.545) from distance, pushing the game to overtime before losing 81-80.

• Entering Monday, Princeton ranked first in the Ivy in assist-to-turnover ratio with 1.4 helpers per giveaway and in 3-pointers per game at 9.9. Ben Hazel was the top free throw shooter in the Ivy at .950, with 19 of 20 made.

• Princeton returns nearly 75 percent of its scoring from a year ago despite graduating reigning Ivy Player of the Year Ian Hummer ’13. The team also returns 71 percent of its starts and 67 percent of its minutes, with Denton Koon, T.J. Bray, Will Barrett and Hans Brase all having started at least 18 games last season.

• 40 percent of Princeton's points this season have been scored by players who weren't on the 2012-13 roster, including rookies Spencer Weisz (8.9 ppg), Peter Miller (2.8 ppg) and Steven Cook (1.3 ppg), junior Ben Hazel (10.3 ppg) and senior Jimmy Sherburne (7.2 ppg). Hazel and Sherburne took the 2012-13 season off from Princeton.

• Seven players (Bray, Brase, Koon, Hazel, Barrett, Weisz, Sherburne) have played 87.4 percent of the minutes this season and have scored 90.1 percent of the points.

• Princeton is 5-0 when leading at the half this season. It rallied when down five at the half against Lafayette but came up one possession short in a three-point loss at Butler when down two at the half.

• In a Princeton-offense staple, the Tigers have assists on 62 percent of their field goals compared to 38.9 percent of opponents' baskets. However, no player is averaging more than five assists per game (Bray) though three (Bray, Brase, Sherburne) are averaging at least 3.0 apg. Princeton's percentage of assisted baskets is higher than that of Rutgers, at 49.6 percent.

• The Tigers have a six-member freshman class and, as of the FDU game, all six of them have seen game action, including Henry Caruso, Khyan Rayner, Hashim Moore, Steven Cook, Peter Miller and Spencer Weisz. Miller has played in six games, and Weisz has started six contests while playing in all seven.

• Rutgers will take a five-game skid against Division I teams into Wednesday's game. The Scarlet Knights have lost five of their last six overall, with a 116-89 win over Division II Stillman College during that stretch. The Knights are 1-0 so far against the Ivy, having defeated Yale 72-71 at the RAC on Nov. 14.

• Rutgers has been outrebounded by four out of its last five Division I opponents, with the exception of FDU.

• Six players have accounted for 90 percent of Rutgers' points this season: Myles Mack (15.5 ppg), Kadeem Jack (14.6), J.J. Moore (13.4), Jerome Seagears (11.1), D'Von Campbell (8.8), and Wally Judge (7.8). The team has a longer bench, however, as no player averages more than 32 mpg (Mack) and nine average at least 10 minutes a game.

• Just more than a third - 34.3 percent - of Rutgers' field goal tries come from behind the arc (204 of 595).

• Rutgers big man Wally Judge has fouled out of four of the 10 games so far, including two of the last three and three of the last five. He averages 22.9 minutes per game.

• Without Myles Mack (39-48, .813), J.J. Moore (42-50, .840) and Jerome Seagears (19-24, .792), Rutgers is averaging .583 (70-120) from the free throw line this season.

• Just two Rutgers players - Jerome Seagears (50-87) and D'Von Campbell (35-59) have taken more than half of their FG tries from distance.

• After scoring in double figures in four of the previous five games, D'Von Campbell was limited to eight points between the last two (six at GW, two vs. Seton Hall.)

• Kadeem Jack has scored in double figures in all nine games in which he has played. He missed the FDU game due to an ankle injury.



Mitch Henderson '98 is in his third season as Princeton's head coach. His overall record at Princeton is 43-24.

Under Henderson, Princeton is 23-6 at home, 20-8 in the Ivy League, and 13-1 in the Ivy League at home. Princeton is 33-8 when leading at the half under Henderson and has won 16 straight such games.

Henderson is aiming to become the first Princeton coach since John Thompson III ’88 to have winning seasons in each of his first three campaigns. He would be the sixth Princeton coach to accomplish that, following Frederick Luehring (1912-20), Butch van Breda Kolff ’44 (1962-67), Pete Carril (1967-96), Bill Carmody (1996-2000) and Thompson III ’88 (2000-04).



Henderson is in ninth place on the Princeton all-time wins list, with predecessor Sydney Johnson '97 in eighth with 66 wins over four seasons. With 37 wins through his first two seasons, Henderson was fourth on the list of wins for Princeton coaches through their first two campaigns, behind Carmody (51), van Breda Kolff (39), and Carril (39).

Henderson was a second-team All-Ivy Leaguer in 1998, an honorable mention All-Ivy Leaguer in 1997, and was a two-time Ivy Rookie of the Week in 1994-95.

Henderson graduated as the fourth-leading assist man in program history (kept since 1974-75) and is now fifth, having been surpassed by one of his players, Ian Hummer '13. Henderson graduated fifth in career assists (kept since 1974-75) and is now eighth, having been passed by former teammate Gabe Lewullis '99, current San Diego Padre Will Venable '05 and Marcus Schroeder '10.

Henderson is one of seven Princeton alumni who are current Division I head coaches, including John Thompson III '88 (Georgetown), Joe Scott '87 (Denver), Mike Brennan '94 (American), Chris Mooney '94 (Richmond), Sydney Johnson '97 (Fairfield) and Craig Robinson '83 (Oregon State). The Tigers are second only to North Carolina (eight) in alumni as current D-I head coaches.

Prior to Princeton, Henderson coached at Northwestern for 11 seasons under his final head coach at Princeton, Bill Carmody, from 2000-11.
