Assorted programs.

Simple math: Exam break x snow = a morning spent scanning old Princeton programs.

Assorted programs.

This afternoon's flash thunderstorm means less time spent weeding the front walk and more time spent scanning Princeton basketball programs from the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Anyone know when Sean Jackson wore #31 during a game at Jadwin Gym? My guess was a JV game his "freshman" year, but the cheerleaders in the background poke holes in this theory.

Seven additional images after the jump.

Mike Brennan hired as Georgetown assistant.

This just in: Former Princeton guard Mike Brennan has been lured away from American University by John Thompson III and hired as the Hoyas' new assistant coach, replacing the departing Robert Burke.

Brennan was an assistant at Princeton for seven seasons before joining the Eagles' staff the last two campaigns.

1993-94 schedule card.

Been lax with the scans of Princeton basketball finds from my parents' place, but here's Mike Brennan on the front of a 15+ year old pocket schedule card.

1990 Recruiting Wrap-Up.

Well before there was, there was The 14 Club, one of this site's biggest influences. The 14 Club was a couple from Princeton who traveled to Princeton games from coast to coast (I remember seeing holding a banner on TV when the Tigers played at #1 UNLV), printed the original Seniors on a Stick, hoarded NCAA Tournament tickets for fellow fans and worked tirelessly to support the orange and black.

As if the above wasn't enough, starting in 1990 they self-published an annual bound "Recruiting Wrap-Up" full of photocopied articles about the incoming freshman class with additional pieces they had culled regarding the next season's Princeton schedule and other news of interest. Pre-Internet, this was the best/only way to know about the incoming freshman class.

I recently uncovered their first book, and wanted to share some bullet points based on stories that are almost two decades old.

An interview with Mike Brennan.

I had a chance to speak with American University assistant coach Mike Brennan earlier today, as the Eagles prepared for their first round NCAA Tournament game against Villanova. A transcript of our conversation follows. - JS

First things first, congratulations.

I appreciate it. Thank you.

Is the team already in Philadelphia?

Yeah. We are. We got up here last night.

Is there an open practice at the Wachovia Center later today?

Exactly. We're practicing at noon at another facility and then we have to go over there later on this afternoon for about an hour. Basically, it is just like a shootaround.
