Throwback Thursday: 1979-80 color photos.

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.

Hello and welcome to this week's "Throwback Thursday." After the jump you'll find 14 separate scans spanning 1979-1982, culled from seven different programs including player profiles and some vintage ads. Click on any image to enlarge, and feel free to share related memories in the comments or on our forum.

Monday News:

Michelle Obama spoke at a fundraiser in Princeton yesterday and attendees included her brother Craig, Mitch Henderson and Steve Mills along with current players Chris Clement and Mack Darrow.

The previous day Craig Robinson visited an Obama campaign office in Philadelphia.

As each mentioned via Twitter, Tiger recruits Spencer Weisz and Pete Miller were both on campus this past weekend for their respective official visits.

It looks like paying for parking at Jadwin Gym for basketball games, which was cast off early into last season, is back for the entirety of the 2012-13 slate. The information published by Princeton's Transportation & Parking Services was in error. There's no charge for basketball parking this season, I'm happy to report.

Chris Young made perhaps his final home start at Citi Field yesterday and while Young will likely end his campaign winless in Queens, he again turned in a performance worthy of victory. Young threw six innings of five hit baseball, allowing one earned run while walking two and striking out five. With a walk off single in the bottom of the ninth, the Mets would sweep Miami 3-2.

Northwestern guard JerShon Cobb was suspended from the Wildcats for a year "due to violations of team policy." He will remain enrolled in school.

Bill Carmody joined WGN Radio alongside Athletic Director Jim Phillips.

A forward from Nevada has trimmed his list of potential schools to six, including Princeton.

Princeton Day School product Davon Reed has committed to Miami.

As you've likely heard by now, Shirley Tilghman will step down as president of Princeton in June.

Before she concludes her term, Tilghman will meet with the Princeton Football Association about issues that could also impact basketball such as transfers, "likely" letters and academic standards for athletes.

Throwback Thursday: 1980s programs.

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.

Alumni Game group photo.

I was urged to stop by Jadwin Gym this afternoon for the annual Reunions Alumni Game and it was great to catch up with some familiar faces, many of a rather recent vintage. Before I split, I was requested to snap a group photo and I've shared it above.

Here's who I recognize/has been ID'd for me from left to right:

Patrick Saunders, Coach Marcus Jenkins, Frank Sowinski, Steve Mills, Edwin Buffmire, Kareem Maddox, John Comfort, Justin Conway, Luke Friedman, Bobby Foley, Coach Dan Geriot, Coach Brian Earl, Noah Savage, Jason Osier, Doug Davis, Kyle Koncz, Aaron Belz, Teddy Gobillot, Howie Levy, Bernie Stiroh, Jesse Rosenfeld, Jay Howson, Jared Katz and Coach Mitch Henderson.

Other former players present while I was around but not pictured: Dan Mavraides, Luke Owings, Jimmy Lane, Conor Neu, Matt Eastwick, Chris Marquardt, Patrick Ekeruo, former assistant Craig Moore and more.

Another stack of vintage Princeton photos.

Finally back home with a touch of free time after covering three games the previous three days, I'm chuffed to share with you nine additional photographs ranging between 1980 and 1993 from the collection of David Zeft. Click on any scan to enlarge.

Above, Kit Mueller cuts down the nets at Jadwin Gym after the 1989-90 season finale (you can see part of a Matt Lapin "Senior On A Stick" in the background).

Scans from a 1980 program.

No, it isn't your monitor.

As I mentioned last month, a subscriber handed me a stack of late 1970s and early 1980s Princeton basketball programs, which I'll be scanning portions of as time allows. The plan was to do one program every seven days, but I missed last week's scheduled scan in lieu of this incredible archive of David Zeft's photographs.

Seeing how we're on the brink of this year's Dartmouth/Harvard weekend, the latest review is of a program from the same visit by these northern travel partners in 1980. That's Randy Melville on the reverse halftone cover. A curious design decision to say the least...
