Plus/Minus numbers through 10 games.

Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach Sydney Johnson, Kareem Maddox & Dan Mavraides:

Playing for the first time in 14 days, Princeton came close to suffering what could have been an embarrassing loss to the woeful Wagner Seahawks, rallying from a twelve point second half hole to win their sixth of the season.

Douglas Davis found Kareem Maddox alone by the basket for a two-handed dunk with just under six seconds left to bail out the Tigers, fouled by Tyler Murray on the stuff.

Maddox’s three point play capped a six point Tiger run in the game’s final minute. It was Maddox's only basket on the night.

"I think they were going for a steal to try and get the win," Maddox said modestly after Princeton's fourth straight victory. "There was one person open and it happened to be me."

Princeton junior Dan Mavraides was 5-11 from three point range, on his way to a season high 21 points. Mavraides tied the score at 42 with a deep triple off the left wing with :47 to go. The rest of the Tiger squad went 0-16 behind the line.

Michael Orock scored 19 inside to pace Wagner.

Tom Noonan impressions.

I had a chance to see Princeton recruit Tom Noonan play for the first time this afternoon, as Penn Charter faced Notre Dame in the Eastern States Classic Invitational Tournament's third place game at Trenton Catholic Academy in Hamilton.

On first sight, Noonan - the fifth member of the Tigers' 2010 recruiting class, looks more like a prototypical college basketball player than I expected a 6'7" high school jumpshooter would. He's not the gangly wisp I thought I would be watching.
