Duquesne postgame interviews.

Here's another request - Tigers head coach Sydney Johnson, sophomore guard Douglas Davis and junior forward Kareem Maddox talking with HDNet's Craig Ehlo after Princeton's first round CBI victory over Duquesne.

My first Ivy road trip.

I don't remember how I talked them into it, but on the first Saturday of March in 1989, I somehow convinced my parents (and extremely skeptical younger sister) that we should load up the car and go to the Princeton/Harvard game outside Boston as a family.

We didn't head all the way up to Dartmouth the previous night, where the Big Green had been victorious 53-43 over the Tigers. Now the losers of two straight, Princeton needed to win their final conference game to claim the program's first Ivy League championship in five years.

A loss to the Crimson (who beat the Tigers by six at Jadwin Gym a month previous) combined with a Dartmouth win over Penn and the two teams would end the season tied at 10-4 for the 1988-89 Ivy crown.

Perhaps it was impending history that sold my folks on making this trip? Perhaps I just begged to the proper degree? Whatever it was, this is a game that cemented my teenage love affair with Princeton basketball.

While my memories of the contest two decades later consist solely of the gym at Harvard being extraordinarily dimly lit and the dogpile of orange and black at center court after the final buzzer, I've always been glad the 15 year-old me captured three blurry pictures after the game on my tiny camera and kept these grainy documents tucked away in my old bedroom.

The first, of Princeton senior captain Bob Scrabis (#34) talking to WHWH broadcaster David Brody, is scanned above.

Two more pictures and some notes about the game can be found after the jump.

As always, click to enlarge.

By request, here's Nick Lake's dunk in the closing moments of Princeton's 65-51 CBI victory over Duquesne - Lake's lone career slam and the final home basket of the season for the Tigers.

Happy Birthday, Coach Johnson.

Today is Princeton head man Sydney Johnson's birthday.

Let that serve as an excuse to scan the above image from a February 1996 program and transcribe a short feature about Johnson written during the conference portion of his junior year.

The piece by Jerry Price takes on a different light than it did when originally published knowing what was to come both the next month and a decade down the line.
