Nov. 14 TigerCast: Courtney Banghart, Jeff Kampersal & Caraun Reid
Heading into a packed Alumni Weekend on campus, Courtney Banghart, Jeff Kampersal and Caraun Reid join the latest edition of TigerCast.
Banghart, head coach of the four-time Ivy League champion women's basketball team, embarks on a season with a new feel following the graduation of the ultra-successful Class of 2013. This squad, which Banghart believes could develop a stronger offensive identity as the season progresses, will raise its 2013 championship banner Sunday during its home debut against Marist, and Banghart talks about the team and its potential, as well her enjoyment working with it, as well as her thoughts about another Princeton team that has captivated her this fall.
Kampersal has guided the Princeton women's ice hockey team to a three-game win streak and a strong start in ECAC play, including a road sweep at Yale and Brown last weekend. The Tigers host a pair of New England powers at Baker Rink this weekend, and Kampersal talks about the year-round growth within the program, as well as the contributions he has gotten from all classes on his roster.
Reid is Princeton's All-America defensive lineman and co-captain, and he will look to guide Princeton to at least a share of the 2013 Ivy League championship this weekend. Princeton has won seven straight games, including all five in the league, and hosts its most historic rival, Yale, Saturday on ESPN3. Reid discusses a talented Yale squad, the development of the program and his appreciation of playing in games of this magnitude after starting his career with two 1-9 seasons.
