Tonight's top notes:

For the second time in program history and the second time in as many seasons, Princeton will play a 32nd game. A win would give Princeton a program-record 33rd game to play Wednesday.

At 80 victories, Princeton's 2012 seniors are the program's winningest class since 2001 (84). Next year's seniors, already with 67 wins, can chase the winningest classes ever in program history: 1992 (85), 1998 (89), 2000 (92) and 1999 (95). The Class of 1982 was the program's first class with four-year players.

Princeton has never played two teams in the Big East at the time of the game on their home courts in the same season, until tonight. Princeton made its bi-annual trip to Rutgers in December. The last time Princeton played two teams currently in the Big East on their home floors was 1994-95, with Syracuse and Rutgers, but Rutgers had yet to join the conference. As such, a win would mark the first time Princeton has ever beaten two Big East teams in the same season.

Princeton will try and beat three teams currently in a major conference on their home floors, after getting wins at Rutgers and Florida State and coming up two points short at N.C. State. Though they weren't in their current conferences at the time, the last comparable year was 1966-67 when Princeton won at Villanova, North Carolina and Rutgers, also a combination of two current Big East teams and an ACC team.

From the 1996 NCAA Tournament win over UCLA onward, Princeton has seven postseason victories: 1996 NCAA over UCLA, 1998 NCAA over UNLV, 1999 NIT over Georgetown and N.C. State, 2010 CBI over Duquesne and IUPUI, and 2012 CBI over Evansville.

Princeton is 2-2 all-time in Pittsburgh, beating Yale in 1922, losing to Pitt in 1952, beating Pitt in 1954 and losing to Pitt in 1962.

Against teams in the Big East at the time of the game, Princeton's record is 9-32, with 17 of those games coming against Rutgers (6-11). Princeton's record in true road games against Big East teams at the time of the game is 4-16, with wins at Rutgers in 1998, 1999 and 2011 (this season) and at St. John's in 1980.

Princeton is in the postseason for the third straight season after the 2010 CBI and 2011 NCAA Tournaments. Princeton has not been in three straight postseasons since 2000-02, when it was in the NIT (2000, 2002) and NCAA (2001).

Princeton has won nine of its last 10 games and 19 of its last 25 since a 1-5 start.

Princeton went 2-2 against teams in the NCAA Tournament field, beating Florida State and Harvard while losing to Harvard by three points and N.C. State by two.

Princeton also beat a ranked team this season (No. 21 coaches/25 AP Harvard) for the first time since November 1997.

Playing on the road is nothing new to the Tigers, who have already played 19 of their 31 games this season away from Jadwin Gym.

Princeton was the Ivy League's top-scoring team in conference play at 68.3 points per game.

Princeton leads the Ivy League in assists, at 14.5 per game, and assist-to-turnover ratio at 1.2:1 per game. Princeton also has two of the Ivy's top five scorers in junior F Ian Hummer (16.2, 3rd) and senior G Douglas Davis (13.5, 5th), and three of the top 10 in minutes played with sophomore G T.J. Bray (33.1, 5th), Davis (32.9, 8th) and Hummer (32.1, 10th).

Forty-seven percent of Princeton's points this season have been scored by juniors, led by Ian Hummer, Brendan Connolly and Mack Darrow.

Princeton has had three straight 20-win seasons for the first time since 1997-99.

In its three games against major-conference opponents this season (N.C. State, Rutgers, Florida State), Princeton has been outrebounded by eight boards per game and outshot 42.6 percent to 40.7 percent. The Tigers have outdone those foes from beyond the arc, making 24 of 65 (.369) tries to the opponents' 9 of 42 (.214).

The second half proved to be Princeton's shortcoming in each of the three games against major-conference opponents this season. In the first half, Princeton outshot N.C. State, Rutgers and FSU 41.3 percent to 33.8 percent and routed them from 3-point land, 42.4 percent (14-33) to 8.0 percent (2-25), leading to an average halftime score of 29-21. In the second half, the opponents outshot Princeton 49.4 percent to 37.7 percent overall, 28.6 percent (4-14) to 25.9 percent (7-27) and from beyond the arc, outscoring Princeton by an average of 34-25 in the final 20 minutes. In two of those games, Princeton was able to build up a strong enough first half to withstand the comeback.

Princeton will look to get other players involved in the scoring against Pitt, as against Princeton's three previous major-conference foes this season, Ian Hummer and Douglas Davis accounted for 64 percent of the team's points. On the season, the pair account for 44 percent of the points.

In its previous CBI appearance, Princeton played its latest game on the calendar in program history when it faced Saint Louis on March 24. Princeton would need to advance to the CBI final to make this the longest season on the calendar.

Princeton went 2-1 in its previous CBI appearance in 2010, defeating Duquesne in Jadwin Gym before winning at IUPUI and losing at Saint Louis.

At 20 victories, Mitch Henderson '98 is Princeton's winningest first-year head coach since Bill Carmody went 24-4 in 1996-97. Henderson was a junior on that team.

Seven Tigers have hit their first career 3-pointers this season, and only three of them (Denton Koon, Clay Wilson, Brian Fabrizius) are freshmen. The others are juniors Ian Hummer and Jimmy Sherburne and sophomores Chris Clement and Daniel Edwards.

Princeton's 449 assists this season are the most since the 1999-2000 Tigers set the program record at 505. The stat began being kept in the mid-1970s.

T.J. Bray's 115 assists this season are the most for any Tiger since Nate Walton '01 had 115 in 2001. Bray's next assist will give him the program's highest total since Kit Mueller '91 had 128 in 1991.

Princeton's 67 wins over the past three seasons are its most over three seasons since 1997-98 through 1999-2000, when Princeton won 68 games.

Princeton's largest deficit overcome for a win this season was 16 at Rider on Dec. 14. The Broncs led by 16 with less than four minutes to go in the first half, and Princeton won in OT. It was one of only two times this season that Princeton overcame a 10-point deficit to win, as Dartmouth led by 10 more than seven minutes into the first half on Feb. 10 at Jadwin Gym before the Tigers ended up winning by 12.

Princeton has shot .542 from the field over the past nine games and is averaging 74.8 ppg over that span, raising Princeton's season-long ppg average from 64.0 to 67.1.

Princeton has only been outrebounded once in the last nine games.

Princeton has shot 50 percent or better from the field this season 12 times, all in the last 23 games. Over that span, the Tigers have shot below 40 percent only five times.

Princeton is 10-1 this season when it gets to the free throw line more than its opponent, with the lone loss coming by one point to Elon on Nov. 22.

Princeton is 2-8 when it doesn't reach 60 points this season and 18-3 when it scores 60 points. On the defensive end, Princeton is 10-2 when it allows fewer than 60 points and 10-9 when it allows 60 or more.

Princeton is 17-4 this season when it shoots 40 percent or better from the field and 3-7 when it doesn't shoot at least 40 percent.

Princeton is 17-5 this season when it shoots 30 percent or better from 3-point range and 3-6 when it shoots below 30 percent from distance.

Princeton is 3-7 this season when allowing 45 percent or higher from the field and 17-4 when holding foes below 45 percent.

The Tigers are 10-5 this season when they hoist 20 or more 3s and 10-5 when they put up fewer than 20. 

In the 27 Princeton games this season in which at least one team has reached 60 points, the first team to reach 60 is 24-3. The first two exceptions were both OT games, at Rider and Florida State, both Princeton wins, but Evansville reached 60 first in the opening round of the CBI but did not win.

Princeton has out-assisted its opponents 14.5 apg to 9.5 apg this season.

Princeton has improved its free throw shooting from the pre-Ivy schedule, shooting 62.9 percent in the 16 pre-Ivy games and 73.2 percent in the conference season and postseason.

Through games of March 16, Princeton's highest national statistical ranking was 41st in 3-point FG percentage defense, at .376, and in assist-to-turnover ratio, at 1.17:1. Douglas Davis was the only individual to rank in the top 100 in a category, standing 67th in 3-pointers per game at 2.48.

On the dunk tote board this season, Ian Hummer leads the team with 13 while Brendan Connolly and Denton Koon have nine apiece and Mack Darrow and John Comfort have one each.

Princeton is 13-4 when leading at the half this season, 6-7 when trailing and 1-0 when tied. The Tigers are 2-0 in overtime this season.

Princeton has a seven-game winning streak going in overtime games, the program's longest since winning 10 straight OT games from 1951-61. The youngest three classes on this Tiger team have not lost an OT game. The two streaks are the two longest in program history.

Against Pittsburgh:

Princeton and Pitt have four common opponents this season. Both teams lost to Wagner and both teams beat Rider. Princeton beat Rutgers while Pitt lost to the Scarlet Knights. Princeton split with Penn while Pitt beat the Quakers in their only meeting.

Both teams outrebound their opponents, but Pitt does so by a much larger margin. Princeton holds a +0.4 rebounding margin, while the Panthers stand at +6.7.

Pitt only has one member of its starting five taller than 6-foot-5 (6-9 junior forward Dante Taylor), while Princeton has three in senior forward Patrick Saunders (6-8), junior forward Ian Hummer (6-7) and junior center Brendan Connolly (6-11). Two more rotation players are taller than 6-6 for Princeton, with junior forward Mack Darrow at 6-9 and freshman forward Denton Koon at 6-8. Pitt has one such regular rotation player in 6-9 sophomore forward Talib Zanna.

Pitt's Talib Zanna and Princeton's Ian Hummer are both 2009 alumni of Washington Catholic Athletic Conference teams, Hummer out of D.C.'s Gonzaga College HS and Zanna out of Maryland's Bishop McNamara.

Princeton ant Pitt play at a similar pace, with the Tigers averaging 64.3 possessions per game to Pitt's 63.3.

Second-chance points figure to be a key, with Pitt standing third in the nation in offensive rebound percentage, grabbing 41.7 percent of their own misses. Princeton ranks 68th in defensive rebound percentage, grabbing 70.7 percent of their opponents' misses.

Princeton out-steals Pitt 6.4 to 4.8 steals per game. The Tigers also out-block the Panthers 3.9 to 2.8 blocks per game.

Princeton is a slightly stronger shooting team than Pitt, as the Tigers make 46.3 percent of their field goal attempts to 45.3 percent for the Panthers. Princeton also hits 37.6 percent of its 3-pointers to 34.7 percent for Pitt.

Pitt is the first Big East team outside of Rutgers any of the current Tigers will face. Princeton last faced a non-Rutgers Big East team in 2007 with Seton Hall.

The Big East is 8-1 against the Ivy this season with the only exception as Princeton's 59-57 win at Rutgers on Dec. 7, 2011.

Milestones:

Douglas Davis (1,530) stands 17 points away from passing Kit Mueller '91 (1,546) to stand runner-up to Bill Bradley '65 and his 2,503 points achieved in three years and without the 3-point line.

Ian Hummer is chipping away at the big gap between where he stands on the Princeton scoring list (13th, 1,156) and 12th place, held by Steve Goodrich '98 (1,207).

Ian Hummer is on pace to stand second in career scoring and career field goals in program history, behind only Bill Bradley '65, when his college career is complete next season. Bradley was a teammate of Ian Hummer's father Ed Hummer '67 for one varsity season, the run to the NCAA national semifinal in 1965. Hummer is on pace to end this season 13th on the Princeton career scoring list.

Ian Hummer's 501 points are seventh most in program history for a single season. Ahead of Hummer are all three of Bill Bradley's seasons (936 in '64, 885 in '65, 682 in '63), both of Brian Taylor's seasons (676 in '72, 573 in '71) and Geoff Petrie in 1969 (541).

Douglas Davis stands in third place on the Ivy League list and second on the Princeton list of career 3-pointers made at 270. Ahead of him are Princeton's Brian Earl '99 (281) and Cornell's Ryan Wittman (377, 2006-10).

During the Evansville game, Davis passed Earl for hoisting the most 3-point tries in program history, now with 676 to Earl's 675.

Davis broke Princeton's games-played record Feb. 25 at Dartmouth and enters the Pitt game at 121 games played. Brian Earl '99 had the previous record at 116.

Davis is third in program history in field goals made at 538. Next up is Kit Mueller '91 at 556, followed by Bill Bradley at 856. He is third all-time in field goals attempted at 1,279, likely where he'll finish his career as Bud Haabestad '55 is next at 1,339.

Ian Hummer is seventh in program history in blocked shots at 84 (the stat began being kept in the 1970s). Next up is Steve Goodrich '98 at 88.

At 115 assists, T.J. Bray's season total is tied for fifth most in program history (the stat began being kept in the 1970s) with Nate Walton '01 at 115 in 2001. Ahead of Bray are Kit Mueller '91 (128 in '91, 140 in '90), head coach Mitch Henderson (131 in '98) and William Ryan '84 (161 in '84).

On the program:

Princeton leads the Ivy League with 26 Ivy championships (56 seasons) and 24 NCAA Tournament appearances (all since 1952).


Mitch Henderson '98, the team's Franklin C. Cappon-Edward G. Green '40 head coach, is the 29th man to hold the job and the fourth consecutive alumnus to do so (John Thompson III '88, Joe Scott '87, Sydney Johnson '97).

Henderson, who played in three NCAA Tournaments for Princeton, spent 11 years at Northwestern under one of his former coaches at Princeton, Bill Carmody, as an assistant coach.

Princeton is second to North Carolina in alumni as active Division I head coaches. Eight Tar Heels are roaming the sidelines, while six Tigers are doing so: Thompson III '88 (Georgetown), Scott '87 (Denver), Johnson '97 (Fairfield), Henderson '98 (Princeton), Chris Mooney '94 (Richmond) and Craig Robinson '83 (Oregon State).
