Fifteen years ago, lots of snow.

The decision to not play Princeton's basketball game at Maine today is the first postponement I can remember in the past fifteen years.

When word broke Saturday evening that the Tigers had been unable to fly up north and that switching to road travel was inadvisable, I started to recall when Princeton last had their schedule rearranged by extreme weather.

If you can think of a more current example, let me know, but I believe this most recently occurred previously in February of 1994.

The Tigers were supposed to play a traditional Friday/Saturday pair of Ivy League games over Valentine's Day weekend at Yale and at Brown, but the forecast had other plans.

According to a Daily Pennsylvanian article that ran the following Monday, Princeton's bus tried to get up to New Haven on Friday, but a snowstorm blocked their path.

The game versus the Elis was rescheduled for Sunday.

On their second try to reach New England from New Jersey, the Tigers made a pit stop at Yale to practice, hit a lengthy traffic delay on I-95 and were late arriving in Providence.

On Sunday, getting back down 95 proved far easier than getting up it. Chris Doyal led the Tigers with 19 as Princeton split their unorthodox weekend with a 68-57 victory over Yale.
