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

Princeton did just about everything well but shoot and it was enough.

The Tigers led the entire way, fending off a pair of Yale second half rallies, holding the Bulldogs to 37.8% from the floor.

With their advantage cut to 52-49 in the final two minutes on Reggie Willhite's explosive left baseline dunk, Kareem Maddox posted up inside, spun into the lane and hung in the air as Greg Mangano fouled him on the elbow while the ball floated through the netting. Maddox's three point play doubled the Tiger lead - which stayed at two possessions through the final buzzer.

"This game was an absolute dogfight," said head coach Sydney Johnson. "I'm not saying we were going to win [after Yale drew within three], but we had been in those moments before."

"We weren't afraid of the moment."

Maddox finished with 16 points and nine rebounds on 5-12 shooting. Fellow senior Dan Mavraides put up 15 and a career best 10 boards despite going 4-14 on the evening.

Mangano ended Friday with his traditional double-double (15 and 12) but was bothered by an assortment of Princeton defenders (Maddox, Patrick Saunders, Brendan Connolly and Mack Darrow) so that when the ball went inside to the likely All Ivy center it could not come back to the perimeter. Mangano had six turnovers and no assists. The Tiger guards sagged but were still able to cover the arc - both of Yale's three pointers (2-9) belonged to Mangano - one a wild bank with the shot clock expiring.

The Tigers hit a season low 31.6% of their attempts (18-57) but stellar defensive possessions and a 19-25 clip at the line (76.0%) aided the cause.

Updated Plus/Minus numbers.

With Princeton at the mid-point of Ivy play, the Tiger athletic department was nice enough to update this season's plus/minus numbers. I've generated my own Ivy-only and DI-only plus/minus numbers in Excel out of that document.

The first chart shows the number of minutes played across the first 23 games this season and the difference in points scored by Princeton while each player was on the floor versus points allowed by the Tigers during the same span.

The second chart shows the same information for non-conference games only, followed by non-conference versus DI opponents and Ivy-only data.

I've also broken down +/- per 40 minutes for all players who have seen at least 100 minutes of action and added Net/40 numbers ("Roland Rate") with inspiration from Hoya Prospectus. This data has been split into non-conference and Ivy-only as well.
