Losing power for three days (happy to report both light and hot water have returned as of this evening), I only just now realized it was Thursday. What better time to share an amazing batch of 18 color photos from the 1979 and 1980 that David Zeft recently unearthed?
Zeft shot these images - which were previously a stack of slides - from the sidelines and stands at Jadwin Gym while attending games with his family.
I have ID'd players to the best of my ability but any further details in the comments would be greatly appreciated.
That's John Rogers (#32) shooting from the top of the key above with Randy Melville (#21) boxing out and Bob Roma (#40) on the wing. You can click on any image to enlarge.
Last week's first ever "Throwback Thursday" focusing on a collection of Bill Bradley-related artifacts has inspired me to give it another go today. If anything it means that some items I've been long-overdue to file will finally get put away out of sight!
This time out we're looking at assorted early 1980s programs. A cross-section of covers, interesting photos and player profiles can be all found after the jump.
Click on any image to enlarge, and feel free to share memories from any of these games in the comments.

Congratulations are in order for Mitch Henderson and his wife on the birth of their son Theodore Robert (not pictured above).
Pete Carril was profiled in El Pais. I ran the article through Google Translate which should make it somewhat easier to parse the content if you don't speak Spanish.
Carril and Coach Henderson met soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimović when French football club Paris Saint-Germain practiced at Princeton recently.
The Dave Blatt-coached Russian team opened group play at the 2012 Olympics with a 95-75 victory over host nation Great Britain.

It was poor fastball location that plagued Chris Young (2-5) on Saturday night in Arizona. Young allowed seven hits and six earned runs in four innings of work as the Mets fell 6-3 to the Diamondbacks.
One sentence of praise for Ian Hummer from someone who has watched a good number of Kenner League games over the years.
princetonbasketball.com was founded on April 28th, 1998 in an attempt to provide fans of the Princeton Tigers and Ivy League basketball with the best on-line source for up-to-date news and information. We have since expanded to launch a companion site, Georgetown Basketball News.
As these sites have continued to grow we have increased our coverage to include additional teams with Princeton connections - the Richmond Spiders, Denver Pioneers, Oregon State Beavers, Fairfield Stags and Mercer County Community College Vikings - plus former Tigers playing professional baseball and basketball all over the world. This site is not directly affiliated with the Friends of Princeton Basketball, Princeton University or the Princeton athletic department.
