• Princeton is off to its best start since the 1997-98 season, a fact that will remain regardless of Tuesday's outcome, whether 10-2 or 9-3 through 12 contests. The '97-'98 team had Mitch Henderson as a senior and was ranked No. 17 in the nation by the AP by the time it had played 12 games (11-1). 

• Princeton will be playing at home for the first time since Dec. 7 after playing four straight away from Jadwin Gym. Princeton has won six in a row at home and 13 of its last 14 after opening the 2012-13 campaign 0-3 in Jadwin.

• Princeton is 21-6 in the 2013 calendar year, including 12-4 in the 2013 portion of last season and 9-2 so far this season.

• Princeton has celebrated New Year's Eve in Jadwin Gym just twice. The first was in a 51-41 win over Holy Cross on Dec. 31, 1999, and the second was a 75-62 win over Loyola (Md.) on Dec. 31, 2004. It'll be the first time Princeton has played on Dec. 31 since 2005, a 54-44 loss at Rutgers.

• The final game of the calendar year in Mitch Henderson's first two seasons didn't lack for excitement. In 2011, it was the 75-73 triple-OT win at Florida State on Dec. 30. In 2012, it was a 62-58 loss at Akron, Kent State's chief rival, again on the 30th of December.

• Princeton will try to continue a trend of bouncing back from defeats. Princeton's last two defeats, and six of the team's last seven dating back to Dec. 2012, have been followed by wins.

• While the Tigers have one more game after this before Ivy play begins, next Saturday at Liberty, this is it for the Flashes. Ohio U. beckons on Jan. 8 back in Kent to start an unbroken 18-game conference slate.

• Kent State is one of four Mid-American Conference teams that Princeton has faced since the 2008-09 season. The Tigers split a home-and-home with Central Michigan in 2008-09 and 2009-10, lost at Akron last year, swept a home-and-home with Buffalo in 2011-12 and 2012-13, and will aim to sweep the home-and-home with Kent State.

• All three of Kent State's losses came when the opposing team shot better than .333 from beyond the arc. The Flashes are 1-3 in such games, losing to Seton Hall (Pirates 8-20 from 3), Bucknell (Bison 9-20 from 3) and Cleveland State (Vikings 7-14 from 3) while squeaking past South Carolina Upstate (Spartans 11-20 from 3) in a 79-78 contest. Princeton, at .395 on the season, has shot better than .333 from distance eight times this season and is 7-1 in those games (Butler).

• Princeton's opponents have scored 33 or more points by halftime four times. Two of the games were the losses to Butler and Portland, and the other two against Lafayette and Penn State became wins only after second-half comebacks. Princeton is 6-0 when opponents score below 70 points and 2-3 when opponents reach 70.

• Princeton is scoring at a rate unseen in more than 40 years so far, as the team's average of 74.5 ppg is its highest through 11 games since the 1971-72 season (83.4 ppg). That season is also the last time Princeton scored at least 66 points in each of its first 11 games, as it has done this season.

• The Tigers have upped their point total from first halves to second halves in eight of the 11 games this season. Princeton is 7-0 when leading at the half this season and has won 19 straight such games. In the other four games, the Tigers rallied at Penn State and against Lafayette but came up short against Portland and by one possession at Butler.


• Princeton and Kent State have one common opponent this season, Bucknell. Princeton beat the Bison 66-53 on Nov. 30, and four days later, the Bison went to Kent and won 66-59.


• Princeton outshot Kent State 55 percent to 34 percent in last season's 62-50 Tiger win in Ohio. Two of the three players who had the best success from the field in that game are back this year, with T.J. Bray (4-5, 15 pts vs. Kent) and Denton Koon (5-5, 10 pts). Brendan Connolly '13 was 4-5 with 11 points against the Flashes, who limited future Ivy POY Ian Hummer '13 to 2-6 FG and five points, though Hummer grabbed nine boards.

• Kent State returns only two of its five starters from last year's meeting with Princeton, including Mark Henniger and Kellon Thomas. The Flashes return just 16 of their 50 points from that game, including nine with Kris Brewer, five with Kellon Thomas and two with Melvin Tabb.


• Princeton and Kent State both have their last few head coaches as active head coaches in Division I. The previous four Kent skippers are still active: Geno Ford (Bradley), Jim Christian (Ohio U.), Stan Heath (South Florida) and Gary Waters (Cleveland St.). Princeton's last three coaches are still active: Sydney Johnson '97 (Fairfield), Joe Scott '87 (Denver) and John Thompson III '88 (Georgetown).

• Through Saturday's games, Princeton led the Ivy League in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.4), defensive rebound percentage (.770) and 3-pointers per game (10.7). Princeton was second in 3-point FG percentage (.395, Columbia .419).

• Princeton doesn't have a player in the Ivy League's official top 12 in points per game, but that figures to change by the end of January. If T.J. Bray plays in Princeton's next four games, he'll make the 75 percent cutoff by the Harvard game on Jan. 31. Bray's present per-game average of 17.1 would be good for third in the Ivy behind Sean McGonagill of Brown (18.6) and Justin Sears of Yale (17.3). Bray would lead the league in assists at 7.0 apg if he met the minimum, as Harvard's Siyani Chambers (5.1 apg) is credited as the league's current leader in assists per game.

• Spencer Weisz is second in the Ivy in field goal percentage through Saturday's games at .596, behind only Dartmouth's Connor Boehm (.617). All of the top seven players in that category are non-seniors.

• Ben Hazel stood second in the Ivy in free throw percentage at .885 behind Columbia's Grant Mullins (.894).

• Princeton is on pace to obliterate the program record for 3-pointers made in a season. The 1997-98 team made 265, and at Princeton's present clip of 10.7 threes per game, with 17 more regular-season games to play, the projected final regular-season number stands at 300.

• Princeton has more than doubled its opponents in the number of 3-pointers made this season, canning 118 to 51 for its foes. The Tigers have also tried significantly more than their opponents, though not quite twice as many, at 299-160.

• Of Princeton's 573 field goal attempts this season, 299, or 52.2 percent, have been from beyond the arc. Of the 10 players who have appeared in at least seven games this season, six have more tries from beyond the arc than from inside, including T.J. Bray, Will Barrett, Ben Hazel, Spencer Weisz, Chris Clement and Clay Wilson.

• Princeton's only two defeats this season were when the opponent made more 3-pointers than Princeton, against Butler (eight for Princeton, nine for Butler) and Portland (five for Princeton, eight for Portland). Those two games are also the only two this season in which Princeton didn't have at least 10 assists, getting nine in each game.

• Princeton is 8-0 this season when holding opponents below 37 percent from beyond the arc and 1-2 when foes hit at least 37 percent of their treys.

• Rebounding has not been much of a predictor of victory for Princeton this season. Princeton has won the rebounding battle in 6 of 11 games this season and is 4-2 in those contests. Princeton is 5-0 when losing the rebounding stat.


• 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.

• 37.1 percent of Princeton's points this season have been scored by players who weren't on the 2012-13 roster, including rookies Spencer Weisz (9.2 ppg), Peter Miller (2.5 ppg) and Steven Cook (1.3 ppg), junior Ben Hazel (9.6 ppg) and senior Jimmy Sherburne (8.0 ppg). Hazel and Sherburne took the 2012-13 season off from Princeton.

• Seven players (Bray, Brase, Koon, Hazel, Barrett, Weisz, Sherburne) have played 88.4 percent of the minutes this season and have scored 92 percent of the points.

• Princeton has trailed in the second half in six games this season: Butler, Lafayette, Bucknell, Rutgers, Penn State and Portland, including by double figures at Butler (13), Penn State (20) and Portland (18). The Tigers came within a final possession at Butler and came all the way back to win at Penn State, though Princeton never mounted a sustained rally against Portland.

• 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 10 of 11 games, and Weisz has started six contests while playing in all 11.

 

• One name that wasn't on the roster last season is making a big impact for Kent State. Derek Jackson, who played in 2010-11 and 2011-12 at Central Michigan before transferring to Cuyahoga Community College, is averaging 11.4 ppg in his first season with the Flashes, good for second on the team.

• Kent State has made five NCAA Tournament appearances in its history, all between 1999 and 2008. Two of those resulted in wins, including a Round of 64 win over Indiana in 2001 and a run to the Elite Eight in 2002 before the Hoosiers got their revenge in the regional final. Stan Heath, now the coach at South Florida, was the coach of the 2002 Kent team before moving on to lead Arkansas after the Elite Eight run.

• The Flashes have had four of their five coldest games from the field this season over the last four contests, averaging .374 against Kennesaw State, Bucknell, the College of Charleston and Cleveland State. The Flashes have lost two out of three after starting the season 8-1.

• The Flashes have used the same starting five in all but one of their 12 games, including Kris Brewer, Derek Jackson, Mark Henniger, Darren Goodson and Devareaux Manley.

• Through Saturday's games, Kent State didn't rank first in the MAC in any category, but the Flashes did rank second in several: points per game (75.6), scoring margin (+7.0), 3-point field goal percentage (.353) and 3-pointers per game (7.4).

• Through Saturday's games, Kent State had the best record in the MAC East at 9-3 and the second-best record overall in the MAC behind West leader Toledo, who took a 12-0 record into a Monday night game at Kansas.

• Through Saturday's games, Kent State was one of two MAC teams (N. Illinois) that didn't have a player in the conference's top 20 in scoring. The Flashes did have three in the league's top 20, with Kris Brewer (23rd, 11.7 ppg), Derek Jackson (25th, 11.4 ppg), and Darren Goodson (27th, 10.8 ppg). Kent also had its rebounding leader (Mark Henniger, 17th, 5.3 rpg) with a lower rebounding clip than the other 11 MAC teams' top rebounders.

• Mark Henniger ranked second in the MAC through Saturday's games with a .939 free throw shooting average.

• Third-year Kent State head coach Rob Senderoff has been at Kent State for 11 of the last 14 seasons including this one, the first eight over two spans as an assistant coach under Jim Christian and then under Geno Ford around a stint at Indiana. Prior to coming to Kent State, Senderoff spent the 2001-02 season at Towson and was an assistant coach under Yale's James Jones for his first two seasons in New Haven in 1999-00 and 2000-01. Princeton won three of the four games against Yale while Senderoff was in New Haven.

 


Mitch Henderson '98 is in his third season as Princeton's head coach. His overall record at Princeton is 46-25.

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 35-8 when leading at the half under Henderson and has won 19 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.
