Princeton 88 Goucher 35.

Box Score : HD Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach Sydney Johnson, Will Barrett & Ian Hummer:

Almost every year after Princeton has returned from their annual exam break to face a Division III foe, I've tried to ask the same question of the Tigers' head coach - "did you get what you wanted out of this game?"

While the result was barely in question on Sunday afternoon as Princeton flattened Goucher by 53 and the query went unspoken, I'd harken the answer for Sydney Johnson this time out leaned toward yes.

"We're not quite ready [for Ivy League play], but in terms of effort - if we can bottle up tonight we'll at least be in games. I thought we played hard," Johnson said after the Tigers won with their largest margin of victory since a 78-24 win over Western Maryland in 2002.

After the Gophers took a 4-3 lead 90 seconds in on Micah Perry's jumper, a 16-0 Princeton run put the game away by the second media time out and a 22-0 stretch spanning halftime allowed everyone in uniform ample experience on the court.

Douglas Davis hit six times behind the arc and had 22 points in 20 minutes. Davis left the game with 9:44 to go in the second half equaling the entire Goucher team’s point total.

Class of '92.

It was almost a year ago that I wrote about Shabbat dinners at my parents' house and brought a stack of 1998 Seniors on a Stick home from their place.

Well, tonight was the final Friday night without a basketball game on my calendar until the end of March, so I had to dig up a couple treats to share after we ate.

Above is a program from the class of 1992's final game at Jadwin Gym. Pictured from left to right are Jimmy Lane, Sean Jackson (Ivy Player of the Year), Chris Marquardt (Academic All-Ivy), George Leftwich (Second Team All-Ivy) and Matt Eastwick (Second Team All-Ivy).

This fivesome graduated as the only class in Ivy League history to make four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances.

The Tigers would win this game over Brown 58-49 to clinch the team's fourth straight Ivy crown. Sophomore Chris Mooney matched his career high with 19 points.

I recently came into possession of a Princeton Media Guide for the 1976-77 season (thanks, eBay!). Flipping through the 5"x8" booklet, there were a number of things that caught my attention, and without a logical way to organize them, I'm presenting a list of bullet points after the jump.
