• Princeton holds a 3-0 all-time record against Fresno State, including two wins over the Bulldogs in Fresno. The Tigers beat Fresno State in Indianapolis in 1986, in Fresno's old home, Selland Arena, in 1995, and when the Save Mart Center was less than two weeks past its official opening in 2003.

• According to the KenPom rankings through Friday, Princeton is the second-highest ranking team remaining in the CBI field, at 98. Only Penn State, at 86, is higher. Princeton, however, is tasked with playing the fourth-highest ranked team left in the field at No. 119 Fresno State. Princeton is the second-winningest team left in the field, behind 22-12 Radford, though the Tigers have the fewest losses of any team left in the tournament.

• This will be Princeton's eighth 30-game season when the Tigers tip it up Monday night. Seven of the eight have included a postseason. The possibility remains of Princeton enjoying its longest season, as Princeton played 32 games both in 2011 (25-7) and 2012 (20-12).

• Princeton could also have its latest season by the calendar. Just by playing Monday night, Princeton will have matched its third-latest season, as Princeton played its 2010 CBI semifinal on March 24. In the early days of the program, Princeton had two late-March games against Penn, on March 28, 1922 and March 29, 1916 as the only games later than March 24. For comparison's sake, Princeton played its 1965 NCAA national semifinal on March 20 and its 1975 NIT final on March 23. The season is also longer overall, as Princeton tied its earliest-ever season opener this season with 2006-07 and 2012-13 by tipping it up on Nov. 10, 2013. Princeton didn't play its first November game until 1943.

• By the NCAA's latest RPI, which was prior to the CBI first round, Princeton (122) is the third-highest rated team in the field behind Penn State (114) and Fresno State (117).

• The Save Mart Center is by far the largest arena in which Princeton has played this season, seating 15,000 for basketball. The last time Princeton played in an arena that size was on Dec. 15, 2012 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn against Fordham. The last time Princeton won a game in an arena that size was Dec. 2, 2006 against Northwestern State at Ohio State's Value City Arena. The last time Princeton won a true road game in an arena of that size was the last time Princeton faced Fresno State, in 2003.

• Princeton and Fresno State's seasons have followed similar paths. Princeton started 9-1, then lost five of eight before winning nine of its last 11 games as the Tigers roll into California. Fresno State started 6-3, lost 10 of 12 and has won 10 of its last 13 as it welcomes Princeton.

• Princeton and Fresno State share a connection between well-known coaches. Princeton's Pete Carril, along with Bill Walton, father of Tiger alum Nate Walton '01, were Fresno State alum and former coach Jerry Tarkanian's presenters at his induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame last September. Carril and Tarkanian, who are less than a month apart in age at 83, faced each other three times as head coaches, with Tarkanian, a Fresno State alum, winning the first two in 1984 and 1990 at UNLV and Carril winning the last one in his final year in 1995 when Tarkanian was at Fresno State. Carril, a Lafayette alum, coached at Princeton for 29 seasons and received an honorary doctorate from Princeton in 2012.

• This is Princeton's third visit to Fresno, after participating in Bulldogs-hosted tournaments in 1995 and 2003, and first visit to California since 2009 when Princeton went to Berkeley. This is Princeton's 14th trip to California all-time, with the first coming in 1967 to Stanford. The Tigers' last win in California was its last win over Fresno State, before losses in 2005 at Stanford and 2009 at Cal. The Tigers have a 9-12 record in the Golden State.

• Entering the weekend, the Ivy League had a 4-1 record in the postseason. Columbia (CIT), Yale (CIT) and Harvard (NCAA) had games Saturday night to try and add to that mark. The Ivy League set a league record this season with five postseason bids, including Brown's bid to the CIT.

• Princeton is now 3-0 in CBI first-round games and 1-1 in quarterfinal games. The Tigers defeated IUPUI in 2010 before losing to Pittsburgh in 2012, both on the road.

• Two men who will be on the Princeton bench Monday night played a big role in Princeton's first win over Fresno State back in 1995. Head coach Mitch Henderson '98 and assistant coach Brian Earl '99 were both starters in that game, with Earl playing all 40 minutes and scoring 11 points and Henderson going 6 of 15 from distance on the way to a team-high 18 points. The Tigers won that game 59-54.

• Fresno State head coach Rodney Terry has coached against Princeton three times, all as an assistant coach. Princeton beat UNC Wilmington 61-54 on the road in 1998 before losing to Texas 57-54 in 2002 when Texas was ranked 10th by the AP and in the first round of the 2004 NCAA Tournament when No. 11 Texas beat Princeton 66-49. Fresno State assistant coach Kenton Paulino played for Texas in both games.

• Princeton's Mitch Henderson and Fresno State's Rodney Terry were both longtime assistants at major-conference schools before taking their first head coaching jobs. Terry was an assistant at Texas for nine seasons before coming to Fresno in 2011, and Henderson was an assistant at Northwestern for 11 seasons before coming back to Princeton, also in 2011.

• Fresno State was established in 1911, when Princeton alum Woodrow Wilson 1879 was the governor of New Jersey. Two years later, Wilson became the President of the United States.

• Princeton has played just three games against schools in the Mountain West at the time of the game. The Tigers lost to UNLV in December 1999 in Charlotte and had a home-and-home with Wyoming in Nov. 2004 (away) and Dec. 2005 (home) with each team winning on its home court.

• Similarly, Fresno State has a short history with the Ivy League. Aside from the three games against Princeton, the last of which in 2003 represents the last time Fresno State faced an Ivy team, the Bulldogs have faced only Cornell, winning two at home in 1986 and 1999.

• By winning its last five regular-season games, Princeton outperformed its forecast in the Ivy League's official preseason media poll, finishing tied for third insted of the fourth-place finish the league's media predicted.

• Princeton's 21st win, coming Wednesday at Tulane, has given the program more wins this season than in either of the previous two. Princeton went 25-7 during its last NCAA Tournament run in 2010-11.

• The 21 wins have also made coach Mitch Henderson the third-winningest coach in Princeton history through his first three seasons. Henderson has 58 wins so far in three campaigns, while Pete Carril predecessor Butch van Breda Kolff '44 had 62 and Carril successor Bill Carmody had 73. Carmody was Henderson's head coach for his final two seasons at Princeton and gave Henderson his first coaching job when he served under Carmody for 11 seasons at Northwestern.

• This is Princeton's third venture into the CBI, all in the last five years. In 2010, Princeton made the semifinals, beating Duquesne at home and IUPUI on the road before losing at Saint Louis. In 2012, Princeton defeated Evansville on the road before losing to Pittsburgh in the quarterfinals.

• Princeton leads Fresno State all-time in postseason appearances 32-15. The Tigers have 24 NCAA appearances (last in 2011), five NIT berths (last in 2002) and now three CBI bids. The Bulldogs have been to the NCAAs five times (1981, 1982, 1984, 2000 [vacated] and 2001), winning a game in 1982 and 2001, while earning nine NIT berths (last in 2007) and now one CBI bid.

• Fresno State and Princeton have just one common opponent this season, Pacific. The Bulldogs lost in Stockton 86-77 on Nov. 23 and the Tigers buried Pacific 83-58 under 18 3-pointers on Dec. 20 in Las Vegas. Fresno State has played just two teams located east of the Mississippi, losing at Pitt in November and against Florida in a neutral-site game in the Sunshine State in December. Princeton has faced only three west-of-the-Mississippi opponents this season, defeating Pacific and losing to Portland, both in Las Vegas in December, and winning at Rice in November.

• With six 3-pointers at Tulane, Princeton broke the program record for 3s in a season at 270. The previous mark of 265 was set by Mitch Henderson's senior-year team in 1997-98.

• Also in the Tulane game, Princeton senior T.J. Bray reached the 1,000-point mark for his career, making him the 30th player in Princeton history to do so. Now at 1,007 points, Bray can climb up the list by passing Will Venable '05 for 29th place at 1,010. John Hummer '70, uncle of Bray's former teammate Ian Hummer '13, is 28th at 1,031.

• With Bray having reached the 1,000-point mark, Princeton has had a 1,000-point scorer in three straight classes, with Douglas Davis '12 and Ian Hummer '13. The last time that happened was from 1997-99, when assistant coach Brian Earl '99 was among four Tigers to reach the number in those classes.

• Though taking over the No. 1 spot is unlikely, T.J. Bray could move up on several Princeton career lists. He's presently third in career assists (kept since 1974-75) at 370, 11 behind runner-up Kit Mueller '91. He has 129 assists this season, fourth since records have been kept and two back of his coach, third-place Mitch Henderson. Bray is also the only player in Princeton annals to have three 100-assist seasons. He is fifth on Princeton's career steals list (also kept since '74-'75), now at 150 and six back of co-third-place holders Will Venable '05 and Marcus Schroeder '10. At 117 career games played, Bray is behind only former teammates Ian Hummer '13 (123), Douglas Davis '12 (122) and Patrick Saunders '12 (118). Bray is also 12th on Princeton's career 3-pointers list with 133, nine back of current Richmond coach Chris Mooney '94.

• When T.J. Bray was named to the first-team All-Ivy League earlier this month, it extended Princeton's streak of having a first-teamer to four years, the longest since Princeton had one in 14 straight seasons from 1988-2001.

• Spencer Weisz's Ivy League Rookie of the Year award was Princeton's first since Konrad Wysocki '04 in 2001.

• Among prior Princeton freshmen, Spencer Weisz has scored the eighth-most points since freshmen became eligible in the 1978-79 season. His 260 points are the most for a Princeton freshman since Douglas Davis '12 scored 333 in 2008-09. Just above Weisz on the list are assistant coach Brian Earl '99, who had 268 points as a freshman in 1995-96, and Sydney Johnson '97, who had 273 points in 1993-94.

• Weisz has joined an impressive list in other statistical categories as well. His 65 assists are the most for a Princeton freshman since Marcus Schroeder '10 had 87 in 2006-07. His 141 rebounds are the most for a Princeton freshman since Chris Young '02 had 160 in 1998-99.

• In 58 Ivy League seasons including 2013-14, Princeton has posted 52 winning Ivy seasons, four 7-7 finishes and just two losing records.

• Princeton finished the Ivy season 9-5 or lower 15 times in the first 57 seasons of Ivy League basketball (last in 2008-09, 8-6). In the season following all 15 of those campaigns, Princeton's record was either the same (three times) or better (12 times), never worse. Five of those 15 times, Princeton went on to win the Ivy title the year after going 9-5 or lower. Eight of those 15 times, Princeton finished 11-3 or better a year after going 9-5 or lower.

• Freshmen Spencer Weisz (19) and Steven Cook (12) have each started at least 12 games, the first time since 2006-07 (Marcus Schroeder '10, Lincoln Gunn '10) that two Princeton freshmen have each started that many games. Both Schroeder and Gunn started all 28 games that season.

• The importance of 3-point shooting to the Tigers is also clear when looking at stats in wins versus losses. In wins, Princeton shoots .376 from distance. In losses, .322. Defense has also been important in determing the Tigers' outcome this season. In wins, Princeton allows a .409 overall FG clip and .298 from beyond the arc. In losses, it's .478 overall and .389 from 3-point range.

• During the 0-4 start to the Ivy season, Princeton allowed opponents to shoot .493 from the field overall and .380 from beyond the arc on the way to an average of 72.5 ppg. In the 11 games since (9-2), Princeton has allowed opponents to shoot .388 from the field overall and .276 from beyond the arc on the way to 58.2 ppg. The Tigers were .459/.327 overall/3pt during the winless streak (67.8 ppg) and .433/.335 since (66.7 ppg). Rebounding has also helped the Tigers turn it around, as Princeton was getting outrebounded by 6.5 rpg while going 0-4 and is outrebounding opponents by 1.9 rpg since.

• Through March 20, Princeton had two national top-10 statistical rankings. The Tigers were fourth both in fewest fouls (494) and 3-pointers per game (9.3).

• Through March 20, T.J. Bray had played his way into the national top 250 in nine statistical categories with a high of 17th in assist-to-turnover ratio at 3.0

• Princeton is 17-3 this season when opponents score below 70 points and 4-5 when opponents reach 70. The Columbia home game was the first game that Princeton's opponent won despite not scoring at least 70 points, followed by the game at Yale and the home game against Harvard.

• Princeton is 17-3 this season when leading at the half this season and had won 22 straight such games before the home Columbia, road Yale and home Harvard contests.


• Of Princeton's 1,529 field goal attempts this season, 744, or 48.7 percent, have been from beyond the arc. Princeton's opponents' 3FG attempts account for only 29.4 percent of their total.

• Princeton is 18-3 this season when holding opponents below 37 percent from beyond the arc and 3-5 when foes hit at least 37 percent of their treys.


Fresno State's most famous contemporary alumnus might be Paul George of the Indiana Pacers. George played two seasons at Fresno State from 2008-10 before declaring for the NBA Draft. George was picked 10th by the Pacers and made his second NBA All-Star team this season.


• Fresno State is one of four Mountain West teams to receive postseason bids this season. The Bulldogs and Wyoming went to the CBI, where Wyoming lost in the first round to Texas A&M, and New Mexico won the conference tournament while San Diego State got an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

• When the Bulldogs shoot below 40 percent in a game, they're 1-10 this season. When reaching 40 percent from the field, they're 17-6.

• Keeping the turnovers low seems to have helped the Bulldogs turn around their season in the later stages. In 19 of their first 24 games (11-13 record), the Bulldogs had 10 or more turnovers. They've had 10+ giveaways in just one of their last 10 games (7-3 record). As of March 20, Fresno State is 10th in the nation in fewest turnovers per game at 9.7.

• Fresno State opponents are 8-1 when reaching 34 points by halftime.

• Fresno State is 11-0 when holding opponents below 66 points. When opponents reach 68 points, teams are 14-3 against Fresno State this season.

• Princeton makes an average of 9.3 3s per game and tries an average of 25.7. Eight times in 34 games, Fresno State has allowed an opponent to make nine 3s but just twice has an opponent tried 26 3s in a game against Fresno State this season. Cal State Bakersfield went 10 of 26 from distance and San Jose State went 8 of 28. Fresno State is fourth in the Mountain West in 3-point FG percentage defense at .314 and Princeton averages .363 from distance.

• Fresno State is 10th of 11 teams in the Mountain West in rebounding margin at -2.9/gm.

• Fresno State's 6-4 senior Tyler Johnson, 6-4 sophomore Marvelle Harris, 6-1 sophomore Cezar Guerrero, 6-7 freshman Paul Watson and 6-9 junior Alex Davis account for 157 of the team's 170 starts. Princeton's average height of the recent usual starting five is 6-foot-6, and Fresno State average of that starting five is 6-foot-5.

• All but one player on Fresno State's roster, Toronto native Emmanuel Owootoah, is from west of the Mississippi River. Princeton has seven players from the country's western half, including three West Coasters in Washingtonian Mike Washington Jr., Oregonian Khyan Rayner and Bay Area native Henry Caruso.

• Fresno State has five players who have taken at least 117 3-point attempts this season. Princeton, despite setting the program record for most 3-pointers made and attempted, has just two players with that many, T.J. Bray (120) and Will Barrett (160). That said, the Tigers do have three more players with at least 93 attempts.

• Princeton averages 14.4 assists per game. Fresno State is 4-11 this season when allowing opponents at least 14 assists this season.

• Cezar Guerrero, a transfer from Oklahoma State who sat out the 2012-13 season, had his first double-double as a Bulldog the last time out at UTEP with 19 points and 10 boards.

• Marvelle Harris, a 6-4 guard, has posted four double-doubles this season, twice against Nevada, once against San Jose State and once against Cal State Bakersfield, each time with 10 rebounds.

• Allen Huddleston, who has played in every game this season for Fresno State except against Florida, had a season-low nine minutes last time out against UTEP and was held scoreless for just the second time this season.

• Against New Mexico and UTEP in Fresno State's last two games, Tyler Johnson was held below 10 points in back-to-back games for the first time since Dec. 2012. The team is 4-6 this season when Johnson either doesn't play or scores less than 10 points.

• Emmanuel Owootoah, who played in all of Fresno State's first 15 games, has only played in nine of the team's last 19.


Mitch Henderson '98 is in his third season as Princeton's head coach. His overall record at Princeton is 58-31.

Under Henderson, Princeton is 30-8 at home, 28-14 in the Ivy League, and 18-3 in the Ivy League at home. Princeton is 45-11 when leading at the half under Henderson.

Henderson is the first Princeton coach since John Thompson III ’88 (2000-04) to have winning seasons in each of his first three campaigns. He is 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. Now with 58 wins through his first three seasons, Henderson has won more games over his first three campaigns than any Princeton coach outside of van Breda Kolff (62 wins) and Carmody (73 wins).

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). Including coaching changes made after the regular season, Princeton leads Division I in alumni as active 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.
