Coach Sydney Johnson - 11/19/09.

Tigers head coach Sydney Johnson and editor Jon Solomon met at Jadwin Gym this afternoon to record their weekly interview. Audio from this Q&A runs 14:00+ in length.

Following a successful 2-0 start to open 2009-10 with wins over Central Michigan and Manhattan, Johnson and Solomon reviewed both games in detail, discussed the success Princeton has had inside by playing both Zach Finley and Pawel Buczak at the same time, talked about the team's ability to get to the free throw line often so far this season and previewed this weekend's home game versus Army.

Syn Tai e Epi Tai.

When reviewing photos from the Central Michigan game, I noticed something new on the inside of Dan Mavraides' left biceps. It was impossible to make out clearly, but I was pretty confident that it was a tattoo.

After last night's Manhattan game, I had a chance to ask Mavraides about what I saw.

The answer? It is a tattoo (enlarged in the above photo) in Greek of a Spartan quote, paying tribute to Mavraides' Spartan heritage.

It reads Syn Tai e Epi Tai, loosely translated to English as "with it or on it."

If you want to read more about this phrase, its meaning and its origins, see this 2002 column from "The Straight Dope."

Postgame audio - Coach Sydney Johnson:

Postgame audio - Dan Mavraides, Ian Hummer & Zach Finley:

Three quarters of the way through Princeton’s home opener against Manhattan, it looked like the story was going to be the potential points the Tigers left just short of the rim or a fraction off the glass. Stuck searching for a foothold after falling into an early 18-6 hole, Princeton repeatedly teased taking control of the game, yet point blank misfires left them down with time rolling off the clock.

The Jaspers were holding a 50-43 lead when the plot changed. With less than seven minutes to go, Darryl Crawford, who led Manhattan with 14 points and 10 rebounds, sped down the baseline unobstructed and reversed the ball in off the glass.

It was the type of deficit and the sort of situation that Princeton will face when the calendar flips to February but this early season test of the Tigers’ mettle saw Princeton go on a narrative-altering 16-2 run that helped the Tigers improve to 2-0 for the second time in three seasons.

Zach Finley, continuing to put last year’s frustrating junior campaign behind him as he now plays confidently alongside instead of behind fellow senior center Pawel Buczak, had 16 points, going 8-10 at the free throw line. Dan Mavraides and Buczak added 13 and 11 points respectively to aid the comeback.

Mavraides’ catch-and-shoot right angle three off a pass from Marcus Schroeder with 3:26 to go gave the Tigers their final lead and Princeton would close the book on Manhattan from the free throw line, a perfect 8-8 from the stripe. “Schroeder lined up the laces nicely for me,” said Mavraides of the shot.
