1979 Penn/Princeton program.

My latest $0.99 eBay steal is another late-1970s Princeton program, this from the Tigers' first meeting of the 1978-79 season with eventual Final Four participant Penn. On the cover you'll find 6'11" senior center Tom "Too Tall" Young (#45).

Assorted programs.

While I'm waiting for another $0.99 eBay gem to arrive in the mail, enjoy covers of 10 programs from games at Jadwin Gym during the late 1980s and early 1990s, including images of several Princeton players I didn't have on file.

Norbert Valis, Chris Pavlic and Troy Hottenstein, anyone?

Above, then-sophomore forward Matt Eastwick. Nine additional images after the jump. Click any program to enlarge.

1976 Penn/Princeton program.

For just $0.74 more than it would have set me back walking in to Jadwin Gym 34 years ago, I picked up a copy of the above Penn/Princeton program on eBay this week.

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.

When I wrote last week about my first Ivy road trip, I had difficulty recalling details about this game.

Thankfully, a copy of the Daily Princetonian from the Monday after the Tigers clinched the 1988-89 Ivy League title turned up.

Reading faded newsprint about tidbits long since forgotten (who knew a freshman Matt Eastwick scored 10 first half points?), an unexpected answer to a series of iconic images was buried towards the end of this article.

Sunday News:

Education Secretary Arne Duncan is part of a three-on-three team ("Ariel Slow & Steady") that includes Kit Mueller (above right), Sean Jackson and John Rogers.

Will Venable (video) golfed a shot deep to right as San Diego beat the Reds 5-0 for the team's eighth straight win.

Venable earned praise from his manager for mastering the lost art of the delayed steal.

AOL News' Weekend Questionnaire asks Craig Robinson an assortment of questions he hasn't faced during his book tour.

1982 Princeton program.

I pride myself on many things, one of which is my status as "king of the $0.99 eBay purchase." Here's the latest find, a program from Princeton's game against Penn at Jadwin Gym in the 1981-82 season.

Highlights from this 46 page booklet are scanned after the jump. Click on any image to enlarge.

Class of '92.

It was almost a year ago that I wrote about Shabbat dinners at my parents' house and brought a stack of 1998 Seniors on a Stick home from their place.

Well, tonight was the final Friday night without a basketball game on my calendar until the end of March, so I had to dig up a couple treats to share after we ate.

Above is a program from the class of 1992's final game at Jadwin Gym. Pictured from left to right are Jimmy Lane, Sean Jackson (Ivy Player of the Year), Chris Marquardt (Academic All-Ivy), George Leftwich (Second Team All-Ivy) and Matt Eastwick (Second Team All-Ivy).

This fivesome graduated as the only class in Ivy League history to make four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances.

The Tigers would win this game over Brown 58-49 to clinch the team's fourth straight Ivy crown. Sophomore Chris Mooney matched his career high with 19 points.
