PRINCETON - Princeton's two leading scorers are now 2012 All-Ivy League honorees, the league office announced Wednesday afternoon.

Princeton, a candidate for an NIT berth, finished the season Tuesday night with a 62-52 win over archrival Penn to close the campaign at 19-11 overall and 10-4 in the Ivy. Princeton is 18-6 since a 1-5 start under first-year head coach Mitch Henderson '98 and has won eight of its last nine games.

For the first time in his career, Hummer, a junior, is a member of the All-Ivy League first team, and a unanimous selection to boot. Penn's Zack Rosen, a senior, was the only other unanimous first-team pick, and Rosen was also the consensus choice for Ivy League Player of the Year.

Hummer is one of only three juniors in a first-team group that included six members due to a tie in the voting. A year ago, Hummer was a second-team All-Ivy pick.

At the close of the regular season, Hummer is the only player in the Ivy League to rank in the league's top 10 in scoring, rebounding, field goal percentage, assists, steals and blocks.

Hummer finished the regular season leading the team in scoring at 16.1 points per game, good for third in the Ivy League, and rebounding at 7.3 boards per game. He also led the team in blocks, was second in steals and assists, and hit 46.8 percent of his shots. Hummer added 3-point shooting to his repertoire this year and hit 32.8 percent of those tries (19-58).

Davis finished second on the team in scoring at 13.0 points per game and now stands third on Princeton's all-time scoring list at 1,499 points. He hit 40.6 percent of his shots and was among the top 3-point shooters in the Ivy League, making 72 of his 181 tries (39.8 percent).

Davis, who has played more games than any other player in program history with 120, was an honorable mention in 2009 and a second-team All-Ivy pick in 2010. Though he wasn't selected to an All-Ivy team as a junior, he made an indelible mark in program and league history by hitting the buzzer-beating shot that sent Princeton to the 2011 NCAA Tournament.

Davis and assistant coach Brian Earl '99 are the only two players in the quarter-century era of the 3-point line that have hit at least 50 3-pointers in each of their four seasons, and the two are among the top three in Ivy League history in 3-pointers made.

Princeton will await its postseason fate Sunday night to find out if it has the opportunity to pursue its 20th win, adding to what is already the winningest three-year stretch for the program since 2000.
