With both basketball teams preparing for key Ivy League weekends, starters Kristen Helmstetter and Denton Koon join the latest edition of TigerCast.
Helmstetter, a junior forward from Bridgewater, N.J., has helped the women's basketball team to a 5-0 start in the Ivy League. She is averaging 9.0 points and 4.8 rebounds per game for a Princeton squad that hosts both Dartmouth and Harvard this weekend. A Tiger sweep would give Princeton a two-game lead in the league, and Helmstetter talks about the program's development and the keys for the upcoming weekend.
Koon is a sophomore on the men's basketball team, which can take over first place in the Ivy League this weekend with a sweep at Dartmouth and Harvard. Koon was Princeton's leading scorer in both games last weekend, and recently had a career effort in a home win over Cornell. Koon talks about getting back on the road and the challenges of moving through a deep and talented Ivy League schedule.
