Princeton staged a rally in each half to defeat Liberty and win its final game before Ivy League play begins. The Tigers went on a 15-0 run in the first half to build a lead that grew as large as 10 points, and Ben Hazel scored 10 straight points in the second half to dig Princeton out of a 57-50 hole. The Tigers held off the Flames from the free-throw line to win the teams' first meeting.

• Princeton will be making its first appearance of the season and fourth overall over the last two seasons on the NBC Sports Network. Steve Schlanger and former Orlando Magic and Miami Heat coach Stan Van Gundy will be on the call. The Tigers have also appeared on Fox Sports and the Big Ten Network this season.

• As Ivy basketball followers know, the importance of all 14 Ivy games is huge. In 58 seasons of Ivy League basketball, a 12-2 record wasn't good enough to win the outright title 31 times. In those 31 seasons, a team either finished 14-0 (13 times), 13-1 (15 times) or had to win a playoff at 12-2 to get the NCAA bid (three times).

• Of those 13 Ivy champions that finished 14-0, 12 of them were Princeton (five times) or Penn (seven times) teams. The other one, and the most recent one, was Cornell in 2008.

• Historically the best men's basketball rivalry in the Ivy League, Princeton or Penn have won the Ivy League title 47 times out of 58 chances. Between 1959-2007, neither Princeton nor Penn won the Ivy title only three times in 49 seasons, in 1962 (Yale), 1986 (Brown) and 1988 (Cornell). The teams have shared the title four times, in 1980, 1981, 1996 and 2002, adding up to an Ivy-best 26 league titles for Princeton and 25 for Penn.

• Princeton has started 1-0 in the Ivy League in five of the last six seasons, with the exception being 2012 (lost at Cornell).

• Princeton's Mitch Henderson and Penn's Jerome Allen are two of the three current Ivy coaches who are the head coach at their alma mater, along with Brown's Mike Martin.

• As players, Allen and Henderson won a combined six Ivy titles, each doing so in his last three seasons (Allen in 1993, 1994 and 1995, Henderson in 1996, 1997 and 1998). Their teams had a combined Ivy League record of 101-11 (Allen 51-5, Henderson 50-6). Their teams also had success in the postseason, winning a combined three NCAA Tournament games (Penn over Nebraska in 1994, Princeton over UCLA in 1996 and UNLV in 1998).

• This is the 229th meeting between the Tigers and Quakers in men's basketball. Penn is one of three teams Princeton has played at least 228 times, along with Yale (228) and Columbia (229).

• In the teams' first meeting last year, in Jadwin Gym, Princeton outshot Penn 49 percent to 40.4 percent, were nearly even on rebounds with 33 for Penn and 32 for Princeton, and nailed 11 3-pointers (22 tries) to five (of 15) for the Quakers. Tony Hicks (16 points) and Darien Nelson-Henry (11 points) led Penn in scoring, while T.J. Bray hit six 3-pointers to pace Princeton with 23 points. Will Barrett was a point away from a double-double with nine points and 10 boards, while Denton Koon added 10 points and the graduated Ian Hummer '13 scored 13. Princeton led 31-22 at the half and stayed the course after the break in a 65-53 win. Penn hit a 3-pointer for the game's first points, but Princeton answered with nine straight points and never trailed again.

• In the teams' second meeting last year, at The Palestra, Princeton again outshot the Quakers, though this time by a smaller margin, 47.3 percent to 44.7 percent. Princeton didn't take or make as many threes in the rematch, going 6 of 14 to 3 of 14 for Penn. The rebounding was close again, this time with Princeton outboarding the Quakers by one, 30-29. After a two-turnover spread in the first meeting (16 for Penn, 14 for Princeton), giveaways played a bigger role in the rematch, with 17 for Penn and eight for the Tigers. Princeton had four players in double figures, led by Ian Hummer '13 and his 18 points, along with 13 from T.J. Bray, 11 from Will Barrett and 11 from the now-graduated Mack Darrow '13. Tony Hicks again led Penn, this time as the Quakers' only double-figure scorer, with 22 points. The game was tied at the half, 32-32, before Princeton outscored Penn 39-26 after the break to win 71-58.

• Princeton has won four of the last five meetings at The Palestra and eight of the last nine overall with Penn. The last time Princeton won 5 of 6 from the Quakers in Philly was from 1983-88, and the last time Princeton won 9 of 10 overall from Penn was from 1965-69.

• Princeton is off to its best start since the 1997-98 season, a fact that will remain regardless of Saturday's outcome, whether 12-2 or 11-3 through 14 contests. The '97-'98 team had Mitch Henderson as a senior and was ranked No. 15 in the nation by the AP by the time it had played 14 games (13-1). 

• The 1997-98 season was also the last time Princeton entered The Palestra with a winning percentage as high as its current .846. The '97-'98 Tigers, with two of their current coaches in the starting lineup that day (Henderson, Earl), were 25-1 (.962) and ranked No. 8 in the nation before finishing off a 14-0 Ivy League slate with a 78-72 OT win at The Palestra. Steve Goodrich '98 poured in a game-high 33 points en route to the win.

• Princeton is as good as 11-2 through 13 games for the 12th time in 114 seasons of varsity basketball. Princeton has been as good as 12-2 through 14 games 10 previous times, and just two of those 10 times came in the last 46 seasons (after 1967), in 1990-91 and 1997-98.

• Princeton is in the top 100 in Division I in 13 of the 28 statistical categories that the NCAA compiles. Collectively, the rankings point out that the Tigers take good care of the ball (33rd in assist-to-turnover ratio, 22nd in fewest turnovers, 35th in turnovers per game, 36th in fewest fouls, 45th in personal fouls per game) and shoot the three (14th in 3-point attempts, fourth in 3-pointers per game, 47th in 3-point FG percentage, 11th in 3s made). Princeton is also ranked in the top 100 in free throw percentage (78th), scoring margin (95th), assists per game (74th) and won-lost percentage (31st).

• Not only do Princeton and Penn do battle twice a year on the basketball court, but the institutions wrestle over which is the fourth-oldest college in the nation, behind Harvard, William & Mary and Yale. Penn claims that its founding came in 1740, though according to Princeton's Mudd Library, the first classes were not held at Penn until 1751 and Penn did not gain a charter until 1753. Princeton was chartered in 1746 and instruction began in 1747.

• Penn and Princeton are only 39 miles apart as the crow flies, but their rosters represent thousands of miles. The 35 players between the two rosters come from 19 states and England.

• Princeton is averaging 74.8 points per game this season. If the Tigers hit their (rounded up) average and score 75 points, it'd be the most points for Princeton at The Palestra since 2004 (76). If the team surpasses 76, it'd be the most since scoring 78 points in 1998, and if the Tigers surpass that, it'd be the most since a record 83 in 1965. Princeton has hit the 75-point mark at Penn only four other times: 79 in 1952, 75 in 1955, 80 in 1957 and 76 in 1964.

• Princeton just closed a calendar year in which it went 22-6 and won their first game of a new calendar year for the fifth straight time. Princeton has started a new year 2-0 each of the last three years.

• Princeton's opponents have scored 33 or more points by halftime just four times in 13 games. 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 7-0 when opponents score below 70 points and 4-2 when opponents reach 70.

• Princeton and Penn will match the teams with the highest and lowest turnover averages in the Ivy League, with Princeton at 10.5 per game and Penn at 17.1.

• Princeton is scoring at a rate unseen in more than 40 years so far, as the team's average of 74.8 ppg is its highest through 13 games since the 1971-72 season (81.6 ppg). That season is also the last time Princeton scored at least 66 points in each of its first 13 games, as it has done this season, and it was also the last time Princeton reached 80 points at least four times in the first 13 games, which it has done this season.

• Though Princeton's scoring rate is its best since 1971-72, that year's team also serves as an example of how important every Ivy game is. The '71-'72 Tigers finished 12-2 after following a 3-0 Ivy start with two straight road losses to No. 9 Penn and by two points to Dartmouth in the team's first two Ivy games after the finals break. Penn finished the league at 13-1, its only loss to Princeton in Jadwin to start the league slate.

• The Tigers have upped their point total from first halves to second halves in nine of the 13 games this season. Princeton is 9-0 when leading at the half this season and has won 21 straight such games. In the other four games, the Tigers rallied to win at Penn State and against Lafayette but came up 14 points short against Portland and by one possession at Butler.


• Princeton and Penn played three common non-league opponents this season and had different results each time. The Tigers swept the common set of Penn State, Lafayette and George Mason while Penn lost to all three.

• Princeton has scored anywhere from 66 to 83 points this season, a variance of 17 points, while Penn's range is almost twice as large, scoring between 55 and 88 points. Penn is 2-1 when it reaches 78 points but 0-9 when it doesn't. There's no clear-cut number for Princeton, which has scored 67 and 79 in losses and anywhere from 66 to 83 in wins.


• Princeton has two of the top three free-throw shooters in the Ivy League, with Ben Hazel at .906 (29-32) and Jimmy Sherburne at .870 (10-20).

• Penn has three of the top 12 scorers in the Ivy League (Tony Hicks, 14.8 ppg; Fran Dougherty, 12.0 ppg; Miles Jackson-Cartwright, 11.8 ppg), and Princeton's top scorer on the Ivy list is Will Barett at 11.3 ppg. T.J. Bray is not included because he hasn't yet appeared in 3/4 of the team's games, though he can qualify beginning after the Jan. 31 game at Harvard. If he were included in the Ivy rankings, he'd be second at 17.2 ppg, behind only Brown's Sean McGonagill (19.1 ppg). Bray would also lead the league in assists per game (6.4, Harvard's Siyani Chambers 5.1) and assist-to-turnover ratio (4.5, Chambers 2.0).

• Princeton averaged 70.3 ppg over the first six games and is averaging 78.7 ppg over the last seven.

• Princeton is averaging .319 from 3-point range over the last three games, below its season-long average of .384 from distance. Four times this season, Princeton's opponents have had more 3-pointers than the Tigers, and three of those four occasions have come in the last three contests. On a per-game basis, the Tigers average 10 makes on 27 tries this season.

• 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 10.4 threes per game, with 15 more regular-season games to play, the projected final regular-season number stands at 291.

• Entering the week, Princeton led the Ivy League in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.4) and 3-pointers per game (10.4). The Tigers were first in defensive rebounding percentage, grabbing 75.9 percent of opponents' misses, but eighth in offensive rebounding percentage, getting 25.9 percent of their own misses.

• 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. Through Tuesday's games, Bray's present per-game average of 16.4 would be good for fourth in the Ivy behind Sean McGonagill of Brown (18.6), Justin Sears of Yale (17.3) and Nolan Cressler of Cornell (16.7). Bray would lead the league in assists at 6.8 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.

• Princeton has nearly doubled its opponents in the number of 3-pointers made this season, canning 135 to 71 for its foes. The Tigers have also tried significantly more than their opponents, though not quite twice as many, at 352-202.

• Of Princeton's 678 field goal attempts this season, 352, or 51.9 percent, have been from beyond the arc. Of the nine players who have appeared in at least eight nine this season, five have more tries from beyond the arc than from inside, including T.J. Bray, Will Barrett, Ben Hazel, Spencer Weisz and Chris Clement.

• Princeton's only two defeats this season were the only two this season in which Princeton didn't have at least 10 assists, getting nine in each game against Butler and Portland.

• Princeton is 8-0 this season when holding opponents below 37 percent from beyond the arc and 3-2 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 7 of 13 games this season and is 5-2 in those contests. Princeton is 6-0 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 (9.0 ppg), Peter Miller (2.3 ppg) and Steven Cook (1.3 ppg), junior Ben Hazel (10.5 ppg) and senior Jimmy Sherburne (7.1 ppg). Hazel and Sherburne took the 2012-13 season off from Princeton.

• Seven players (Bray, Brase, Koon, Hazel, Barrett, Weisz, Sherburne) have played 88.7 percent of the minutes this season and have scored 92.3 percent of the points.

• Princeton has trailed in the second half in eight games this season: Butler, Lafayette, Bucknell, Rutgers, Penn State, Portland, Kent State and Liberty, 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 12 of 13 games, and Weisz has started six contests while playing in all 13.

• Looking ahead, the Tigers will enter the uniquely Princeton portion of their schedule and have 13 January days away from competition for first-semester finals. The Tigers will emerge for their mostly-annual tradition of facing a Division III team for a post-finals rust buster when they host Kean at Jadwin Gym on Sunday, Jan. 26. Because Kean will be in its Wednesday-Saturday conference schedule, it'll be one of two times during the regular season that Kean will play on back-to-back nights (other time was Dec. 27-28 at a Wittenberg-hosted tournament). Princeton plays seven back-to-backs this season, with the Las Vegas tournament last month and six upcoming Friday-Saturday Ivy weekends.

• Penn will enter the season's first meeting with Princeton on a seven-game skid for the second straight season. Last year was the first time Penn entered the first Princeton game on a losing streak as long as seven games, and the Tigers were able to extend it to eight.

• The Quakers have made 70 percent of their free throws in a game only twice in 12 chances this season.

• Entering the week, Penn was in the top 100 in Division I in two categories: assists per game, where Penn was 32nd at 15.8 apg, and field goal percentage defense, where Penn was 88th at .409.

• Penn is 2-1 when it scores 40 points by halftime and 0-9 when it doesn't. The Quakers are 2-1 when opponents don't get to 34 points by the half and 0-9 when they do. Penn is 2-0 when opponents score fewer than 74 points and 0-10 when opponents reach 74, which also happens to be near Princeton's per-game average (74.8).

• Penn is 2-2 when holding opponents below 38 percent from the field and 0-8 when opponents hit at least 38 percent.

• Penn's opponents have won the last four rebounding battles, all games without 6-11 sophomore Darien Nelson-Henry, who has been out injured. In the eight games Nelson-Henry played, Penn was 4-4 in the rebounding stat, winning the glass in each of the four games before Nelson-Henry went out. The Daily Penn has reported that Nelson-Henry could return against Princeton.

• The Quakers had no seniors last season and return 100 percent of their points from the 2012-13 campaign that saw Penn finish 9-22 overall and 6-8 in the Ivy. After a league-opening loss at Jadwin Gym last year, Penn won seven of its final 16 games following a 2-13 start.

• The four players who are averaging double-figure points this season have combined for two-thirds of Penn's points: Tony Hicks (14.8 ppg), Fran Dougherty (12.0 ppg), Darien Nelson-Henry (12.8 ppg) and Miles Jackson-Cartwright (11.8 ppg).

• Nine Quakers have started a game this season, and only Fran Dougherty has started all 12. Tony Hicks and Miles Jackson-Cartwright have started 11.

• Tony Bagtas, a 5-11 freshman, played just 19 minutes over four of the team's first six games and did not score. In the last six games, Bagtas is averaging 26.3 mpg and 4.2 ppg.

• Fran Dougherty, a 6-8 senior, has had six double-figure scoring games this season, including in each of the last three games. He's averaging 16.3 ppg over the last three contests. Dougherty is also averaging 8.5 rpg over the last eight games after averaging 3.5 rpg over the first four. Dougherty was the team's leading scorer last season at 13.8 ppg.

• Tony Hicks, a 6-2 sophomore, has had nine games in which he played no fewer than 25 minutes and scored in double figures all nine times with a high of 33 in the win over Niagara. In the other three games, against Villanova, Marist and Rider, all losses, Hicks played no more than 17 minutes and scored a total of 10 points.

• Julian Harrell, a 6-5 sophomore, scored 23 points against Rider (has 54 points this season) in his last game but missed the last two contests due to injury.

• Miles Jackson-Cartwright, Penn's second-leading scorer last season at 13.5 ppg, has six double-figure scoring games this season but didn't crack double figures in the other six, including scoring one point in 26 minutes last time out against La Salle before fouling out. Jackson-Cartwright and Henry Brooks have three foul-outs apiece and six of the team's eight this season.


Mitch Henderson '98 is in his third season as Princeton's head coach. His overall record at Princeton is 48-25.

Under Henderson, Princeton is 24-6 at home, 20-8 in the Ivy League, and 13-1 in the Ivy League at home. Princeton is 37-8 when leading at the half under Henderson and has won 21 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.
