It was Princeton's most points in regulation in a season opener since winning 71-68 at Central Michigan in 2009, and it was Princeton's largest margin of victory in a season opener since defeating Lehigh also by 17, 62-45 in 1995 (sophomore Mitch Henderson had 12 points). It was Princeton's first win in a home opener since defeating Rutgers in 2010. On the way to the win, Princeton held Florida A&M to 32.7 percent shooting while shooting a modest 38.9 percent itself and outrebounding the Rattlers 42-33.

• Princeton played two Big East teams last season that are no longer in the Big East, losing against Rutgers 58-52 in Jadwin Gym and Syracuse 73-53 in the Carrier Dome. The team's last win over a team in the Big East at the time of the game was at Rutgers, 59-57 in Dec. 2011, and if the Tigers can defeat Butler, it would snap a three-game skid against schools in the Big East at the time of the game, as the Tigers also lost at Pittsburgh in the 2012 CBI.

• Princeton's last win over a team currently in the Big East was against Xavier on Dec. 9, 2000, 58-52. The last time Princeton had a road win against a team currently in the Big East was Dec. 7, 1996 at Marquette, 66-62.

• Princeton is aiming for its first 2-0 start since the 2009-10 season.

• The Tigers have won their last two games in Indiana, against Evansville in the 2012 CBI, a 95-86 win, and at IUPUI in the 2010 CBI, a 74-68 double-OT win. The last loss in Indiana was in Dec. 2007, a 53-32 defeat at Evansville.

• This will be Princeton's fifth trip to Indianapolis. The first was in Dec. 1986 at the Hoosier Classic at Market Square Arena for an 83-54 loss to No. 8 Indiana and a 71-57 win over Fresno State. The second was in Dec. 1993, a return to the Hoosier Classic for a loss to No. 25 Western Kentucky, 59-45, and a win over TCU, 48-43. The third visit was the most famous, with the 43-41 upset of UCLA in the 1996 NCAA Tournament at the RCA Dome. The fourth visit was the 2010 CBI win over IUPUI.

• Mitch Henderson, a native of Vincennes, Ind., who went to high school at Culver Military Academy in north-central Indiana, coached in Hinkle Fieldhouse when Northwestern visited Butler on Nov. 26, 2008, a 57-53 Butler win.

• 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.

• Of Princeton's 67 points in the opener, 31 were scored by players not on the 2012-13 roster, including Jimmy Sherburne (13), Ben Hazel (nine), Spencer Weisz (five) and Pete Miller (four).

• Butler is 10-1 all-time against the Ivy League, including Cornell (0-1), Dartmouth (2-0), Penn (2-0), Princeton (2-0) and Yale (4-0). Two meetings against Penn, in the 2012 CBI and again last season, were the only meetings between Butler and the Ivy League since a win over Yale in the 1970-71 season. Cornell's defeat of Butler in the 1966-67 season, by a 69-64 final in Hinkle Fieldhouse, is the only Ivy win over the Bulldogs.

• The last Princeton-connected team to defeat Butler was Georgetown in the 2009-10 season when the Hoyas were ranked 15th in the nation by the AP. Georgetown won that game 72-65 at Madison Square Garden. Hoyas coach John Thompson III is a 1988 Princeton alumnus.

• Butler just missed having to go against Bill Bradley '65 the last time the teams played. The game was in the 1961-62 season, Bradley's freshman year in the era before freshman eligibility.

• This will be the second straight game for the Tigers that will match head coaches who are alumni of the schools they coach. Clemon Johnson of Florida A&M is a Rattler alum, Brandon Miller is a Butler alum, and of course Mitch Henderson is a Princeton alum. For the Tigers, that will happen again when Princeton faces Rutgers (Eddie Jordan), Penn (Jerome Allen) and Brown (Mike Martin).

• Mitch Henderson, age 38, will coach against a head coach who is younger than he is for the first of three times this season, including both contests against Brown's Mike Martin (age 31). Butler's Brandon Miller is age 34.

• The Tigers are coming off taking their most 3-point attempts against a Division I opponent in four years. The team's 31 3-point tries against Florida A&M were their most against a D-I foe since also trying 31 treys against Army on Nov. 21, 2009. Princeton's 12 3-pointers made were its most since making 12 at Dartmouth on Feb. 25, 2012.

• Princeton led the Ivy League last season in scoring defense at 58.4 ppg, scoring margin at +6.0 ppg, 3-point FG percentage defense at .325, rebounding defense at 28.7 rpg, assists at 14.5 apg, and assist:turnover ratio at 1.2.

• Ian Hummer '13 led the Ivy in scoring last season at 16.3 ppg, but the Tigers return two other players in the top 20 in Denton Koon (10.5 ppg) and T.J. Bray (9.9 ppg).

• Butler beat Lamar 89-58 last Saturday in a game that Lamar led 30-29 with less than four minutes to play in the first half. The Bulldogs outshot the Cardinals from the floor 58.3 percent to 37.5 percent in the second half while taking 12 more shots than Lamar, thanks in part of a 22-10 rebounding edge in the period. Khyle Marshall led the Bulldogs with a double-double on 19 points and 13 boards. 

• Butler is in its first season in the new Big East, joining fellow newcomers Xavier and Creighton along with conference veterans Seton Hall, DePaul, Providence, Villanova, St. John's, Georgetown and Marquette.

• Butler had a 35-year absence from the NCAA Tournament after 1962, the last year the Bulldogs and Tigers played, until its return in 1997. From 1997 on, the Bulldogs have played in 11 of the 17 NCAA tournaments, winning a game in seven of the last 13 NCAAs since 2001. Included in those are Sweet 16 appearances in 2003 and 2007 and, of course, the national final berths in 2010 and 2011.

• The last four Butler head coaches have gone on to major-conference or NBA head coaching positions, including Barry Collier (Nebraska), Thad Matta (Ohio State, via Xavier), Todd Lickliter (Iowa) and Brad Stevens (Boston Celtics).

• The Bulldogs graduated their top two scorers from last season in Rotnei Clarke (16.9 ppg) and Andrew Smith (11.3 ppg) and lost their third-leading scorer this season when it was announced in August that Roosevelt Jones (10.1 ppg) would miss the season due to a wrist injury. Khyle Marshall, a 6-6 senior forward, is the leading active returning scorer, having averaged 9.6 ppg last season.


Mitch Henderson '98 is in his third season as Princeton's head coach. His overall record at Princeton is 38-22.

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 presently tied for ninth on the Princeton all-time wins list (38) with Joe Scott '87, 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.
