Princeton will play at Drexel.

One more for the schedule: Princeton plays at Drexel on December 10, 2011.

This will be the Tigers' first meeting with the Dragons since the 2005-06 season opener, which was part of the preseason NIT.

The only other time Princeton has played at Drexel was in 1929.

With Mavraides now under contract, joining Pawel Buczak (Poland) and Kareem Maddox (The Netherlands), a question crossed my mind: When was the last time three Princeton teammates were simultaneously playing professionally overseas?
