Kevin "Moon" Mullin interview.

In the history of the Ivy League, the player to score the most points in an NCAA Tournament game not named Bill Bradley is Princeton's Kevin Mullin '84.

As a senior Mullin was able to crack Pete Carril's starting lineup and alongside classmate Billy Ryan helped rally the Tigers from a 0-2 conference start to win a second straight Ivy League title. The man called "Moon" shot 61.8% from the floor for the year, averaging 17 points per game.

Princeton would defeat San Diego in a preliminary round of the tournament where Mullin scored a remarkable 38 points, 12-15 from the floor and 14-16 at the free throw line.

The lessons Mullin learned as a student-athlete at Princeton as well as his experiences both prior to college and subsequently in the professional world have inspired him to write "Student-Athletes - A Guide For The Future."

The book, available in both physical and electronic versions at Amazon, is Mullin's attempt to provide guidance for young people and their mentors facing situations similar to those he went through decades previous.

I had a wide-ranging 30+ minute conversation with Moon on the phone yesterday and you can read a transcript of our discussion about his playing days, a number of fantastic Coach Carril stories, challenges for today's student-athletes and more on his book after the jump.
