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.
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.
I'm delighted to share with you 11 additional photographs from the collection of David Zeft, the majority of which are from mid-1990s games at The Palestra. Some in this set do also date from the early 1980s.
Click any and all to enlarge. Above, a driving Jamie Mastaglio with Pete Carril, Bill Carmody, Armond Hill and Joe Scott watching from behind the referee on the bench.
As I mentioned previously, a subscriber recently handed me a stack of late 1970s and early 1980s Princeton basketball programs, which I'll be scanning portions of as time allows - hopefully one a week.
I already posted images from the 1981-82 media guide I was gifted but here's the first in this series to share.
This pair of games were significant for completely unrelated reasons, which I discuss after the jump. It is also neat to see images of players in action I've only heard tale of and some of the archival designs are a treat.

A subscriber recently handed me a stack of late 1970s and early 1980s Princeton basketball programs, which I'll hopefully be scanning portions of in the weeks to come.
In addition he included a copy of the Tigers' media guide from exactly 30 seasons ago. See some archival photographs (and other items that caught my attention flipping through) after the jump. Click any and all to enlarge.
Several of the guide's graphics I did not include here are already shown in this piece on a Jadwin Gym program from the same time.
I completely forgot that I shot and edited this montage for the Friends of Princeton Basketball from Reunions 2003 of the alumni basketball games at Jadwin Gym.
Pictured at different junctures: John Thompson III, Kyle Wente, Ray Robins, Pete Hegseth, Steve Goodrich (with platinum blonde hair!), Jerry Price, Ahmed El-Nokali, Chris Doyal, Jim Lane, Frank Sowinski, Nate Walton, Stu Orefice, Jason Osier, Stan Adleston, Sean Gregory, Gabe Lewullis, Rich Simkus, John Trubee, Christopher Kilburn-Peterson, Jamie Mastaglio, Brian Earl and many others I can't as easily ID.
I model myself an amateur archivist and take pride in being a thorough researcher, so a discovery like the above photo was all I needed to start digging up details on what happened prior to the final buzzer of Princeton's 56-53 victory over 19th-ranked Oklahoma State in the 1983 NCAA Tournament.
Princeton had already shut down North Carolina A&T 53-41 for their 10th straight win behind 18 from Gordon Enderle and 15 for Ivy League Player of the Year Craig Robinson in a preliminary round of the tournament to set up their meeting with OSU.
There's much to love if you click to enlarge this image shot off the endline of Gill Colliseum in Corvalis, Oregon - from the agape hug on the far right to the joy of the unknown player rushing alone to half court still wearing his warm-up pants to Pete Carril's blase' gesture with his right hand as he shuffles towards the Cowboys' bench.
Noah Savage was a guest speaker at Montgomery High School's basketball camp.
Princeton Summer League Hall of Fame inductee Rick Simkus reflects on 18 seasons of games at Community Park.
In NBA Summer League action, Judson Wallace started at forward for the Phoenix Suns, scoring two points. Wallace made his only field goal attempt in 18 minutes of play, a lefty jump hook in traffic. The Suns blew a late lead and fell 100-97 to Houston.
Will Venable is hitting .393 with runners in scoring position for the Portland Beavers.
Tonight, Chris Young faces the Phillies for the first time as a Padre. Philadelphia visits San Diego for a four game series. First pitch is scheduled for 10:05 pm ET.
Will Venable was 0-5 in San Antonio's 4-1 victory over Frisco.
The Princeton Summer League completed its regular season schedule last night. Where2Ball.com defeated George's Roasters & Ribs. Rich Simkus tallied nine points for George's, who finished play with a 4-4 record. The playoffs start Sunday evening at Community Park.
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.
