LIVE VIDEO l THE 2012 NATIONAL FINAL

The last point played between Princeton and Trinity at the Jadwin Squash Courts was also the last one in Trinity's 13-year reign as national champions. The two rivals will meet in the regular season finale Saturday afternoon in the final matchup before the 2013 CSA national championships.

The match will be streamed live on GoPrincetonTigers.TV, with all three courts being shown. Audio coverage will be included on the main court, which will provide updates on the entire match.

Top-ranked Trinity will bring an impressive 15-0 record into the Jadwin Squash Courts for the 2 pm showdown against the fourth-ranked Tigers, who claimed their 18th Ivy League championship last Sunday with a 9-0 victory over Columbia.

Trinity leads the all-time series over Princeton 25-20, though it's a series that has clearly been dominated by the Bantams of late. Princeton won 19 of the first 21 meetings against Trinity, while the Bantams followed with a run of 23 straight wins that ended Feb. 19, 2012, when Princeton won its 11th nine-man national championship in a 5-4 comeback win.

Trinity is coming off an impressive 5-4 road win at No. 2 Harvard, where Zeyed ElShorafy scored the winning point for the Bantams at the No. 7 spot to clinch the victory. Trinity has also been pushed in a pair of other road matches, winning 5-4 at No. 6 Rochester and 7-2 at No. 5 Cornell.

For Princeton, it is an opportunity to potentially reclaim the top ranking before the CSA championships, held Feb. 22-24 at the Brady Squash Center at Yale. The Tigers are led by senior co-captain Todd Harrity, who had his biggest win of the season last weekend with a 3-0 sweep of 2012 CSA finalist Ramit Tandon of Columbia. Harrity earned a 3-0 victory in the national team final last season; that match evened the team score at 4-4 and set up Kelly Shannon's championship-clinching victory.

It will also be Senior Day for the Tigers, who will honor the trio of Harrity, fellow co-captain Steve Harrington, and Chris Greco during their final match at the Jadwin Courts.
