Princeton 73 Fordham 61.

Box Score

Postgame audio - Zach Finley & Kareem Maddox:

Postgame audio - Coach Sydney Johnson:

Nick Lake's 14 points led a balanced, surgical Princeton attack as the Tigers defeated Fordham 73-61 on Thanksgiving Eve.

Lake was one of three Tigers in double figures, joined by center Pawel Buczak's career-high 13 and a 11 for freshman Doug Davis. Kareem Maddox added eight points and seven rebounds.

While Davis reached double figures for the fourth straight time, Wednesday's game was more than just The Doug Davis Show.

"We had great contributions," said Tiger head coach Sydney Johnson. "Doug is a nice player, but it is definitely going to be more than him and it has to be if we expect to do anything this year."

Princeton anatomized Fordham's man-to-man defense, shooting a season-best 54.3% from the field.

New Recruit - Will Barrett.

It has been known for a few weeks now that Central Bucks South forward Will Barrett had decided on Princeton as his collegiate destination, but it wasn't until tonight that I was able to finally get his extremely busy high school coach, Jason Campbell, on the phone.

Campbell shared his first-hand knowledge of Barrett's game with me and his quotes from our conversation, plus many links about this well-regarded prospect can be found after the jump.

This piece is one of six on about the members of the 2009 Princeton recruiting class.

We're on Facebook.

In my endless quest to skew this site younger (see last week's implementation of a Twitter feed for part one of this plan), I've set up a page for on Facebook.

You can become a fan of what we do, watch videos, add your own photos and click around on many things that will probably just take you right back to the original site. Head here to check it out.

Don't worry, there won't ever be content on the Facebook page that isn't on this site first.

Also, if anyone knows of a decent schedule importer for Facebook that doesn't involve creating a new event for each game, I am interested.

Brendan Connolly, a 6'9" 240 lb center (#52, right) from Father Ryan High School in Nashville has decided to play basketball at Princeton.

Connolly is the sixth publicly-announced member of Princeton's 2009 recruiting class, a group full of talented, versatile big men.

I had a chance to speak with Connolly's high school coach, Doug Bontrager, this afternoon. His quotes about Connolly, plus links to evaluations and accolades can all be found after the jump.
