While preparing Princeton to take on reigning NCAA champion Virginia in the first round of the NCAA tournament, Tiger head coach Chris Bates joined TigerCast to relive the Ivy League tournament and look forward to the national championships.
Princeton earned an at-large bid to the tournament after claiming the 2012 Ivy title with a perfect 7-0 run through its league rivals. Yale tripped the Tigers up in the Ivy tournament final to claim the automatic big, but the committee was still impressed enough by the Tigers' season to send the team to Virginia for the first round. Bates, in his third season, talks about a new feeling throughout the team that could make Princeton one of the most dangerous opponents during the NCAAs.
