Postgame audio - Coach Sydney Johnson:

Postgame audio - Kareem Maddox & Douglas Davis:

Princeton coach Sydney Johnson couldn’t wait for a question about if winning at Columbia for the first time in five years was important for his seniors to finish. He knew the answer and did not hesitate to speak.

“Absolutely,” Johnson interjected. “We talked about that before the game. There’s no question,” he emphasized.

“[The seniors] got their first win at Columbia. It was absolutely very, very important for us to try to get a win here coming off of the disappointment of last night [at Cornell] for our seniors and for our program. We feel pretty good.”

To win for the seniors and bounce right back from a bitter loss in Ithaca, three Tiger underclassmen had to turn in big performances.

Junior forward Kareem Maddox scored a career high 17 and matched his career best with 10 rebounds.

Maddox was joined in double figures by fellow junior Dan Mavraides, who had a game high 22 on 7-9 shooting. Sophomore Douglas Davis hit four times behind the arc on his way to 14.

Davis was first onto the court after Princeton’s arrived at Levien Gym over an hour before tipoff, spending extra time working with a Tiger assistant who made a few jump shots in his day, Brian Earl.

“I got off the bus and I was sluggish,” Davis admitted. “I just wanted to get in the gym, get up some shots as soon as I could. It helped me tonight.”

The Tigers trailed 14-7 after a sloppy start, but a 12-0 run midway through the first half turned a five point deficit into a seven point lead.

Princeton opened the second half on a 16-4 spurt and held off a late Lion push.

The Tigers shot 23-44 from the floor (52.3%), 7-16 from behind the arc (43.8%) and 14-18 at the free throw line (77.8%).

Niko Scott scored 12 for Columbia in his final home game. Sophomore sharpshooter Noruwa Agho was bothered into 3-15 shooting by Maddox and Mavraides, finishing with nine.

Maddox and Mavraides did a fine job leaping above screens and chasing this pair on curl patterns to the perimeter.

“They’re going to score sometimes, and we just have to stick to our scouting report,” said Maddox of his team’s attentiveness to Scott and Agho. “Do what the coaches tell us and make adjustments throughout the game.”

Postgame audio - Coach Sydney Johnson:

Postgame audio - Pawel Buczak & Dan Mavraides:

In a game where both Cornell and Princeton had to work exceptionally hard to find open looks and uncontested shots, the Big Red fended off the Tigers all night and most importantly when it mattered most - at the final buzzer.

"Cornell's a good team," said Tiger head coach Sydney Johnson. "I think we showed what we're made of, especially on the heels of Saturday, where we disappointed ourselves [versus Brown]. Tremendous effort, I think that was pretty evident."

"Our guys responded pretty well in terms of how much harder they needed to play," Johnson added. "I was encouraged by that."

But for the second time in as many meetings, the Big Red grinded out a three point victory over Princeton, a win earned at the free throw line, where the home team shot 22-25 and 15-17 in the second half.

Cornell, who never trailed, made a season low 35.1% of their attempts from the field.

Even 7'0" Big Red center Jeff Foote, a 59.4% free throw shooter entering Friday, was a confident 7-8 from the stripe and finished with a game-high 19 points on 6-7 shooting.

"He's a 50% foul shooter and he made his free throws," Johnson said of Foote's performance. "All credit to him. That's his Achilles' heel and he made them. Jeff Foote made his free throws. God bless him."

Stout perimeter defense hounded potential 2009-10 Ivy League Player of the Year Ryan Wittman into 3-11 shooting and a 0-5 game behind the arc, but a pair of Wittman free throws with two seconds left after Dan Mavraides’ scooping drive cut the Cornell lead to a single point with just over four ticks on the clock provided the night’s final margin.

Mavraides, who was unable to get a tying three attempt from just inside midcourt up to the rim, had 13 points and a game best seven rebounds for Princeton. The Tigers outrebounded Cornell 31-25 and snatched 12 offensive boards.

Kareem Maddox added an acrobatic 11 off the bench for Princeton and Pawel Buczak had 10, including two large second half three point shots.

The Daily Princetonian, the Trentonian, WPRB Sports, the Cornell Daily Sun and the Ithaca Journal preview tonight's action.

The Princeton team bus beat the worst of the storm to Ithaca and arrived yesterday afternoon. Despite ~18" of snow on the ground (and some more falling outside my hotel window), tonight's game will most likely take place as scheduled.

The Columbia Spectator looks at the Lions' games versus the Quakers and the Tigers.

Northwestern (18-10) set a school record for wins in a regular season, defeating Iowa 74-57.

Denver (16-12) let a 42-21 second half lead get away in a flurry of turnovers, falling at South Florida 54-52. Tim Williams' wild runner with six seconds left won the game for the Jaguars.

A depleted UCLA squad had enough to beat Oregon State (12-15) by a 65-56 final. The Beavers were never able to deliver a knockout punch.

Georgetown's Greg Monroe was named to the Naismith Trophy midseason team.

Several clips of Tiger recruit Tom Noonan can be found in this highlight package from Penn Charter's loss to Haverford.

San Diego will go as far as Chris Young goes, says a Bleacher Report writer. The web site has a short video forecast about Young's return from injury.

Princeton remains in fifth place in the latest Schuylkill 16.
