Ten Princeton Men's Basketball Facts

• The leading scorer in Princeton history is Bill Bradley '65, who scored 2,503 points in three seasons before the era of freshman eligibility. He went on to win two NBA titles with the New York Knicks and serve three terms in the U.S. Senate from New Jersey. He was also an Olympic gold medalist in with Team USA in 1964.

• Princeton's 26 Ivy League titles are more than any other team in the league, as are its 24 NCAA Tournament appearances.

• Two members of the Princeton head coaching staff, Mitch Henderson '98 and Brian Earl '99 were part of two NCAA Tournament victories in 1996 and 1998.

• Every Ivy League playoff, which serves to award the league's NCAA bid, has involved Princeton, including the thrilling finish in 2011 won with a buzzer-beating shot by Douglas Davis '12.

• The second-leading scorer in program history has changed twice in less than two years, with Douglas Davis '12 scoring 1,550 points and teammate Ian Hummer '13 surpassing him with 1,625 points.

• Princeton's all-time winningest coach is Pete Carril, who is also the Ivy League's winningest coach. Carril won 514 games at Princeton, leading the team to the NCAA Tournament 13 times.

• Princeton co-leads the nation in alumni as current Division I head coaches, with seven (Craig Robinson '83, Oregon State; Joe Scott '87, Denver; John Thompson III '88, Georgetown; Mike Brennan '94, American; Chris Mooney '94, Richmond; Sydney Johnson '97, Fairfield; Mitch Henderson '98, Princeton).

• For five years, a Princetonian had the record for most points scored in an NCAA Tournament game. Bill Bradley's 58 points in the 1965 NCAA third-place game are still the second-most behind the 61 from Austin Carr of Notre Dame in 1970.
