Friday News:

Kareem Maddox is the Daily Princetonian's Male Athlete of the Year.

The Mets' Chris Young opted for shoulder surgery and his season is almost certainly done. ESPN New York writes about how Young's four starts and 24 innings pitched were actually statistically amazing.

Princeton coach Mitch Henderson was part of a group that rang the closing bell at the NASDAQ on Thursday. Here is video of the ceremony.

Armani Jeans Milano coach Dan Peterson checked in with his perspective on a 92-74 home victory over Vanoli Cremona. Peterson writes:

"The MVP was Mason Rocca, from my home town of Evanston, Illinois, with 14 points (7-10 shooting) and 9 rebounds. He played 29 minutes at the '4' position and we were +34 in those minutes on the plus-minus."

Milan's Jonas Maciulis suffered a serious knee injury during the game.

Marcus Jenkins joins Princeton coaching staff.

Marcus Jenkins, who served as a Director of Basketball Operations the last four seasons at Richmond, will join the Princeton coaching staff as one of Mitch Henderson's new assistants.

A 2004 graduate of the Air Force Academy, Jenkins played in 22 games his junior and senior years under Joe Scott and then-assistant coach Chris Mooney before working as a Logistics Readiness Officer at Malmstrom Air Force Base for three years.

"Marcus is an outstanding young coach who will be an asset to Coach Mitch Henderson and the tremendous tradition of Princeton Basketball," said Mooney. "He is extremely organized, hard working and loves basketball. He will relate very well to the players and will represent Princeton admirably."

Here is a hometown profile on the Lompoc, CA native from March.

This hire leaves one position on Henderson's staff still to be filled.

Video of Mitch Henderson at Yankee Stadium.

The above YNN piece about Jim Boeheim's trip to Yankee Stadium on Wednesday shows an adjacent Mitch Henderson several times.

Henderson, fourth from the right wearing a white turtleneck, was standing between Hofstra coach Mo Cassara and Rutgers' Mike Rice during the pregame ceremony recognizing the work accomplished by Coaches vs. Cancer.

All 10 coaches present were introduced by the PA announcer and received a handshake from Yankees manager Joe Girardi before a group photo was taken.

Higher resolution video of the entire ceremony can be streamed here.

Denton Koon officially "signs" with Princeton.

Sure, those headed to the Ivy League don't actually write their names on a National Letter of Intent, but that shouldn't stop each player's school from any pomp and circumstance they planned.

In a ceremony at Liberty High School on Monday, with admissions letters long since mailed out, Denton Koon made his selection of Princeton official.

Koon never wavered from his intention to play for the Tigers when Sydney Johnson left last month and a conversation with new coach Mitch Henderson the day Henderson was hired evaporated any anxiousness on Koon's part.

This is as good a time as any to run an email sent to me in late March from Liberty head coach Roger Stirtz updating everyone on his senior forward's progress since we first talked about Koon last August.

Read what Stirtz had to say after the jump.

A 29th round selection in the 1994 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft, Mitch Henderson will be on the field of the team that selected him this evening.

Former Sacramento King Doug Christie credits Pete Carril for improving his game.

Efficiency the past 15 years.

There was an article I read last week about the top coaches of the past five years.

The piece was an interesting one that compared the Points Per Possession of 30 major conference coaches minus the Points Per Possession of their opponents.

Inspired by what I was looking at, I've set up a similar table including every Princeton team from 1996-97 through 2010-11. Instead of using Points Per Possession, I'm working with Offensive Efficiency, which is Points Per Possession multiplied by 100. It was easier to get accurate data this way. For those more comfortable with Points Per Possession, just slide each decimal point two spaces to the left while you're reading!

Breaks between years should make it easier to visualize these numbers by head coach.
