• Princeton is off to its best start since the 1997-98 team, a fact that will remain regardless of Saturday's outcome, whether 8-1 or 7-2 through nine contests. The '97-'98 team had Mitch Henderson as a senior and was ranked No. 19 in the nation by the AP after its ninth game, which was a 69-64 win over No. 23 Wake Forest at the Meadowlands. That game remains Princeton's last win away from Jadwin Gym over an AP-ranked team.

• Princeton is scoring at a rate unseen in more than 40 years so far, as the Tigers' average of 72.1 ppg is its highest through eight games since the 1971-72 season (83.5 ppg). That doesn't figure to decrease much if at all Saturday night, given Penn State's averages of allowing 71.7 ppg while scoring 80.5. That season is also the last time Princeton scored at least 66 points in each of its first eight games, as it has done this season.

• Princeton has matched its longest win streak in two-plus seasons under Mitch Henderson, now at six games. Another win would make this the longest streak since the 2010-11 Tigers reeled off 10 straight.

• The Tigers have upped their point total from first halves to second halves in three straight games and five of eight this season.

• Penn State will be Princeton's third top-100 Pomeroy-ranked opponent of the season to date, as of Thursday's rankings. Butler checked in at No. 56, with Penn State at No. 64 and Bucknell at No. 82. Princeton was ranked No. 70 and defeated Bucknell in Lewisburg by 13 points two weekends ago. The Tigers didn't have T.J. Bray and were abnormally struggling from the free throw line (23-37) when they had their three-point loss at Butler on Nov. 16.

• Princeton and Penn State have one common opponent that each has played so far, with the Lions losing to Bucknell 90-80 on Nov. 13 and Princeton defeating the Bison 66-53 on Nov. 30. Penn State played one other Ivy opponent, Penn, in an 83-71 Quaker defeat. Princeton will be the second New Jersey team Penn State has faced, as the Lions routed Monmouth 84-52 on Nov. 26.

Princeton and Penn State will meet for just the fourth time in nearly 40 years, and just the second time in that span in a regularly scheduled game on one of their home courts. The teams hadn't met since 1974 when they were paired together in the 1999-2000 season's Holiday Classic at Madison Square Garden, and then they met later that season in the 2000 NIT at Penn State. The teams had their first regularly scheduled on-campus game since 1974 in 2007. Penn State won all three of the recent meetings.

• Penn State is a perfect 6-0 against Princeton in its home venues, including 3-0 at Rec Hall with two meetings in 1971 (separate seasons) and the last in 1974. Penn State is 2-0 against Princeton at the Bryce Jordan Center, in 2000 and 2007.

• Princeton's three wins in the series have come in three venues: in 1922 at Princeton's University Gym, at The Palestra to open the 1965 NCAA Tournament in which the Tigers went to the Final Four, and in 1970 in Jadwin Gym. Princeton will play in two of those venues this season, in Jadwin Gym for their home games and at The Palestra on Jan. 11 at Penn.

• Like Penn State's Rec Hall, Princeton's venue previous to its current one is still standing and in use. Dillon Gym, where Princeton played from 1947-69 and which hosted Bill Bradley's career, is the home to Princeton's wrestling and men's and women's volleyball teams. Princeton's venue previous to that, Baker Rink, which the men's basketball team used from 1944-47, is the home of Princeton's men's and women's hockey team and, in use since 1923, is the second-oldest NCAA hockey rink still in use, after Northeastern's Matthews Arena where the Princeton men's hoops team played last season. The Princeton men's basketball t
eam's first venue was University Gym, which burned in 1944.

• Given that Penn State hasn't played a game in Rec Hall in nearly 18 years, Princeton could be the more familiar team with a gym of Rec Hall's make-up. The capacity of Rec Hall for Saturday's game is 6,300, smaller than Princeton's Jadwin Gym (6,854) and less than half the size of Penn State's usual home, the Bryce Jordan Center (15,621). The average gym capacity in the Ivy League is 4,206, ranging from Dartmouth (2,100) to Penn (8,722). In the Big Ten, the average is 13,599, ranging from Northwestern (8,117) to Ohio State (18,809).

• Princeton head coach Mitch Henderson has plenty of experience with the Big Ten, having served as an assistant coach at Northwestern from 2000-11 before coming to Princeton. This will be Henderson's first game against the B1G as a head coach.

• Princeton will try to end an 11-game skid against Big Ten schools. The program's last win over a Big Ten school was on Dec. 28, 1985 against Wisconsin, which came in Arizona. The Tigers have an 18-game skid on Big Ten opponents' home floors, last defeating Northwestern in Evanston on Dec. 27, 1955.

• Princeton did not play Penn State while Mitch Henderson was a player at Princeton. While Henderson was at Northwestern, Penn State won 13 of the 20 meetings, with Northwestern's last win during Henderson's tenure coming on Feb. 10, 2007 in Evanston. Penn State won the final seven meetings with Northwestern that came in State College, with Northwestern's last win there during Henderson's tenure coming on Feb. 16, 2002.

• In 2010-11, Henderson's final season with Northwestern, Penn State's Tim Frazier had 17 assists between the two meetings with the Wildcats, both double-digit Penn State wins. The Nittany Lions made the NCAA Tournament that year, losing in the Round of 64 to Temple.

• Penn State's Pat Chambers has never coached against Princeton, whether as a head or assistant coach. Chambers and Henderson were hired within two months of each other, with Henderson announced at Princeton on April 20, 2011 and Chambers named at Penn State on June 3, 2011. Current Princeton assistant coach Brian Earl's brother Dan, a Penn State alum, was an assistant at Penn State under previous coach Ed DeChellis from 2005-11.

• This will be Princeton's first appearance on the Big Ten Network. Princeton's only other game against a Big Ten school during the channel's existence was the most recent meeting with Penn State, but that game was on ESPNU.

• This will be the Ivy League's ninth appearance in a men's basketball game on Big Ten Network television since the channel launched in 2007. Brown (1-1), Cornell (0-3), Harvard (0-1), Columbia (0-1) and Penn (0-1) have made the eight appearances to date. Brown has the only win, over Northwestern on Nov. 24, 2007 by a 73-67 final. Penn State is 1-0 against the Ivy on BTN TV, defeating Cornell 74-67 on Dec. 21, 2011. The average margin of victory, including the lone Ivy win, is 9.9 points for the Big Ten team, and four of the last five Ivy-Big Ten games on BTN TV have been decided by single digits.

• Penn State is shooting .469 this season overall. Princeton has allowed a team to shoot .469 or better in a game three times this season, against Lafayette, George Mason and Rutgers. Although all three were Princeton wins, the margin was five points or fewer at the finish, and Princeton had to shoot a combined .506 between those three games.

• Penn State is allowing teams to shoot just .338 from 3-point range this season. The Tigers have had just one game shooting .338 or lower from distance, a 14-point Princeton win at Rice on Nov. 23.

• Penn State is averaging 80.5 points per game this season, and Princeton hasn't allowed a team to score more than 73 in regulation this season. That came Wednesday night at Rutgers, a 78-73 Tiger win in Princeton's largest regulation scoring output of the season.

• Princeton's 212 3-pointers attempted are the second-most through eight games for the program since the rule came into effect for the 1986-87 season. The 1995-96 team had 218 tries through eight games. The top two 3-point shooters on that team? Freshman Brian Earl had 56 3-point tries through eight games, and sophomore Mitch Henderson had 45. Princeton has tied the '95-'96 team for most 3s made through eight games, at 85.

• Princeton has more than doubled its opponents in the number of 3-pointers made this season, canning 85 to 36 for its foes. The Tigers have also tried significantly more than their opponents, though not quite twice as many, 212-119.

• Of Princeton's 412 field goal attempts this season, 212, or 51.5 percent, have been from beyond the arc. Six players have more tries from beyond the arc than from inside, including Will Barrett (38 of 53), Ben Hazel (40-58), Spencer Weisz (24-39), T.J. Bray (23-37), Chris Clement (14-18) and Clay Wilson (5-5).

• Princeton has tried more 3-pointers than its opponents in seven of eight games this season. The only game that the opponent tried more was at Butler, when the Bulldogs dialed long distance 24 times (making nine) to Princeton's 20 (eight made).

• Princeton has held its opponent below .400 from beyond the arc in seven of eight games this season, with the Lafayette game as the exception. The Leopards made 6 of 11 (.545) from distance, pushing the game to overtime before losing 81-80.


• In Princeton's only loss this season, at Butler on Nov. 16, the Tigers had a season-low nine assists and shot a season-low .622 from the stripe on 37 attempts, by far a season-high. It was the only game this season in which Princeton didn't have at least 56 percent of its baskets assisted. The Tigers had nine of 18 (.500) buckets with helpers in their trip to Hinkle Fieldhouse. The Tigers also didn't have T.J. Bray for that game (injured) and all Bray has done in his four games played this season is average 16.0 ppg and lead the team in assists per game at 5.8, including games of 10 (George Mason) and eight assists (Rutgers).

• When Princeton heads to Las Vegas a few days after the Penn State game, it'll be just Princeton's second visit to the Silver State. The other time, Princeton was handled 69-35 by the No. 1 Runnin' Rebels, led by 19 points from Anderson Hunt on Dec. 19, 1990. Future No. 1 pick Larry Johnson, not long before his "Grandmama" days, was one rebound away from a double-double with 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting and a game-high nine boards.


• Princeton ranks first in the Ivy in assist-to-turnover ratio with 1.4 helpers per giveaway and in 3-pointers per game at 10.6 (Cornell second, 8.2). The Tigers are first in defensive rebound percentage (.778) but eighth in offensive rebound percentage (.266). Ben Hazel was the top free throw shooter in the Ivy at .955, with 21 of 22 made.

• Princeton returns nearly 75 percent of its scoring from a year ago despite graduating reigning Ivy Player of the Year Ian Hummer ’13. The team also returns 71 percent of its starts and 67 percent of its minutes, with Denton Koon, T.J. Bray, Will Barrett and Hans Brase all having started at least 18 games last season.

• 39.5 percent of Princeton's points this season have been scored by players who weren't on the 2012-13 roster, including rookies Spencer Weisz (8.4 ppg), Peter Miller (2.7 ppg) and Steven Cook (1.3 ppg), junior Ben Hazel (10.8 ppg) and senior Jimmy Sherburne (7.2 ppg). Hazel and Sherburne took the 2012-13 season off from Princeton.

• Seven players (Bray, Brase, Koon, Hazel, Barrett, Weisz, Sherburne) have played 88.6 percent of the minutes this season and have scored 91.9 percent of the points.

• Princeton is 6-0 when leading at the half this season. It rallied when down five at the half against Lafayette but came up one possession short in a three-point loss at Butler when down two at the half.

• In a Princeton-offense staple, the Tigers have assists on 63.3 percent of their field goals compared to 41.6 percent of opponents' baskets. However, no player is averaging more than 5.8 assists per game (Bray) though three (Bray, Brase, Sherburne) are averaging at least 3.0 apg. Princeton's percentage of assisted baskets is higher than that of Penn State, at 55.3 percent.

• The Tigers have a six-member freshman class and, as of the FDU game, all six of them have seen game action, including Henry Caruso, Khyan Rayner, Hashim Moore, Steven Cook, Peter Miller and Spencer Weisz. Miller has played in six games, and Weisz has started six contests while playing in all seven.

• Penn State has started the same five in all 11 games: 6-4 junior D.J. Newbill, 6-1 grad student Tim Frazier, 6-6 junior Ross Travis, 6-7 sophomore Brandon Taylor and 6-9 sophomore Donovon Jack. 

• The Nittany Lions will be bringing a Mercer County connection to Saturday's game, with sophomore Brandon Taylor as a Trenton Catholic Academy alumnus.


Penn State has shot better than 40 percent from the field in 10 straight games. The Lions have shot below 40 percent from beyond the arc in three straight games. For the season, Penn State is shooting 53 percent on its two-point tries.

• In the six games in which Penn State has been held to 15 or fewer assists, the scoring margin is just +1.2 for the Lions. Penn State is 3-3 in those games (Wagner, Bucknell, Penn, St. John's, Mississippi, Pitt).

• Opponents have shot better than 40 percent seven times against Penn State this season, but in neither of the last two games (Marshall, Duquesne). All three of Penn State's losses have come with the opponent shooting better than 40 percent, including Bucknell pouring in 60.9 percent of its shots. PSU is 4-0 when holding opponents below 40 percent (Wagner, Monmouth, Marshall, Duquesne).

• Penn State's 3FG% defense has been up and down this season. The Lions opened by holding Wagner to a mere 2 of 23 (.087), but then allowed Bucknell to make 10 of 15 (.667) before holding opponents below 40 percent for the next four games. Over the last five, St. John's, Mississippi and Marshall have averaged .484 collectively against PSU, while Pitt and Duquesne averaged just .176.


• Over the last five games, Penn State has been outrebounded four times and has a rebounding deficit over that stretch of -2.8 rpg.

• D.J. Newbill has scored in double figures in every game this season. However, Penn State is 4-2 when he scores 18 or more and 4-0 when he doesn't.

• Brandon Taylor was hot from 3-point range earlier in the season, going 13 of 27 (.481) over the first five games. Over the last six, however, Taylor is just 7 for 30 (.233).

• Penn State has averaged nearly a foul-out a game this season, and no one player is a main culprit in the nine DQs over 11 games. Five players have fouled out, with Brandon Taylor taking five whistles on three occasions. Two of those for Taylor were early in the season, against Bucknell and Penn, but Taylor drew four fouls each against Pitt and Marshall before taking five last time out against Duquesne. On the whole, Penn State hasn't fouled much more than its opponents, however, 231-226 on the season.


• D.J. Newbill and Donovon Jack are averaging better than half made from the field this season, with Newbill at .504 (70-139) and Jack at .554 (31-56). Take out Newbill's .444 3-point clip (20-45), and he's hitting .532 from two-point range (50-94). Jack is also strong from distance, making 9 of 18 (.500), but even stronger from two, making 22 of 38 (.579).

• Six Lions (Newbill, Frazier, Travis, Taylor, Roberts, Jack) have played 85.1 percent of the minutes and scored 92.4 percent of the points.


Mitch Henderson '98 is in his third season as Princeton's head coach. His overall record at Princeton is 44-24.

Under Henderson, Princeton is 23-6 at home, 20-8 in the Ivy League, and 13-1 in the Ivy League at home. Princeton is 34-8 when leading at the half under Henderson and has won 17 straight such games.

Henderson is aiming to become the first Princeton coach since John Thompson III ’88 to have winning seasons in each of his first three campaigns. He would be the sixth Princeton coach to accomplish that, following Frederick Luehring (1912-20), Butch van Breda Kolff ’44 (1962-67), Pete Carril (1967-96), Bill Carmody (1996-2000) and Thompson III ’88 (2000-04).



Henderson is in ninth place on the Princeton all-time wins list, with predecessor Sydney Johnson '97 in eighth with 66 wins over four seasons. With 37 wins through his first two seasons, Henderson was fourth on the list of wins for Princeton coaches through their first two campaigns, behind Carmody (51), van Breda Kolff (39), and Carril (39).

Henderson was a second-team All-Ivy Leaguer in 1998, an honorable mention All-Ivy Leaguer in 1997, and was a two-time Ivy Rookie of the Week in 1994-95.

Henderson graduated as the fourth-leading assist man in program history (kept since 1974-75) and is now fifth, having been surpassed by one of his players, Ian Hummer '13. Henderson graduated fifth in career assists (kept since 1974-75) and is now eighth, having been passed by former teammate Gabe Lewullis '99, current San Diego Padre Will Venable '05 and Marcus Schroeder '10.

 Henderson is one of seven Princeton alumni who are current Division I head coaches, including John Thompson III '88 (Georgetown), Joe Scott '87 (Denver), Mike Brennan '94 (American), Chris Mooney '94 (Richmond), Sydney Johnson '97 (Fairfield) and Craig Robinson '83 (Oregon State). The Tigers are second only to North Carolina (eight) in alumni as current D-I head coaches.

Prior to Princeton, Henderson coached at Northwestern for 11 seasons under his final head coach at Princeton, Bill Carmody, from 2000-11.
