The Princeton men's squash team swept Brown 9-0 Saturday to remain unbeaten at home and gain some momentum prior to Super Sunday's crucial Jadwin showdown with the third-ranked Yale Bulldogs.

Princeton won 27 of 29 individual games to improve to 4-5, 2-2 in the Ivy League. The Tigers got wins from every class, including freshmen Ben Leizman (No. 8) and Michael East (No. 9). The duo both earned 3-0 victories for the Tigers, who played in their first home match since a late November win over Williams College.

Princeton also got wins from its top three players, all of whom were coming off impressive Wednesday victories over the top-ranked Trinity Bantams. The junior duo of Samuel Kang (No. 1) and Tyler Osborne (No. 2) both won in three games, while senior co-captain Dylan Ward fought back from a close loss in the third set to dominate an 11-2 win in the fourth game.

Fellow senior co-captain Ash Egan dropped only seven points in his win at the No. 7 spot, while both Taylor Tutrone (No. 5) and Michael LeBlanc (No. 6) also won in three.

The toughest match of the day came at the No. 4 spot, but junior David Hoffman was able to overcome an 11-9 loss in the first game to win three close games. The victory closed out a 4-0 first shift en route to a comfortable win.

Princeton knows Sunday will be anything but comfortable, but it is looking forward to the challenge of taking on the third-ranked team in the nation. The match will be played in a three-shift format, with matches taking place on Courts 1-3. All matches will be streamed live on the Ivy League Digital Network.

Princeton defeated Yale 6-3 last season on its way to a second straight Ivy League championship.
