Both the men's and women's basketball teams open the 13-game sprint towards the Ivy League championship this weekend with key showdowns against Harvard, and both are the focus of this week's edition of TigerCast. Senior Nicole Hung and men's basketball coach Mitch Henderson discuss, among other things, the first half of the season and Friday's crucial matchups against Harvard.

Hung is a senior guard who fought her way back to the court after suffering a season-ending knee injury last season. She compared her injury to the one suffered multiple times by Greg Oden, but she has made her way back to play in 10 of Princeton's 15 games this season. Hung discusses the process of returning to the court, the development of this new-look squad and the importance of maintaining their high level of play at Jadwin Gym.

Henderson has guided the men's team to a 12-3 start to the season, and his squad faces Ivy League preseason favorite Harvard Friday night at 7 pm. While there were several highlights from the first half of the season, Henderson talks about the resilience that his team has shown following the Ivy-opening loss at Penn. He discusses the overall high level of play from this team so far this season, and how it will be needed this weekend on the team's first full Ivy weekend road trip.
