Ten games into the 2010-11 season, the Princeton men's basketball team has gained the attention of the Wall Street Journal, which had writer Ben Cohen stop by practice last week to check in on a fast-moving Tiger offense.

The full article can be found here.

Princeton has won seven of its first 10 games this season including five straight, extending that winning streak with an 82-78 double-overtime victory at Tulsa Sunday afternoon. Two of Princeton's three losses this season were by two points or fewer.

On the way to that 7-3 mark, Princeton has scored 723 points, the most for a Tiger team through 10 games since the 1971-72 team that featured future ABA and NBA star Brian Taylor. Princeton has scored at least 60 points in 10 straight games, the program's longest such streak the same 1971-72 campaign.

Individually, four Tigers are averaging double-figure points, led by sophomore Ian Hummer at 15.5 ppg with junior Douglas Davis (14.2) and seniors Dan Mavraides (14.2) and Kareem Maddox (11.9) also surpassing 10 points per game. If four Tigers remain in double figures through the end of the season, it would be the first time since 2003 that Princeton has finished a season with four players averaging 10 or more points per game.

Princeton will head a little closer to Wall Street in pursuit of its sixth straight win when the Tigers and the Wagner Seahawks (4-5) get together on Wagner's Staten Island campus Friday for a 7 p.m. tip.
