Know! Your! Foe! - Bucknell.

Princeton visits host school Bucknell on the first leg of the Legends Classic subregional the day after Thanksgiving. Curious about how this year's model of the Bison differs from the team the Tigers defeated in 2010-11, I traded emails with the well-cloaked Bison137, who spends much of his time on Bucknell's Basketball-U board. The result is an unprecedented fifth Know! Your! Foe! preview in as many games this season.

If you cover a team the Tigers will face down the line, let us know. It would be great to talk with you.

Elon 56 Princeton 55.

Postgame audio - Coach Mitch Henderson, Ian Hummer & Douglas Davis:

Box Score : HD Box Score

Leaving plenty of points short of the rim, either at point blank range or from the free throw line, Princeton found itself chasing Elon for the entire second half.

On four separate occasions the Tigers teased within one but were unable to reclaim a lead they only held briefly early.

After the Phoenix threw a cross court pass away with :13.6 to go, Princeton received one final opportunity.

However, Douglas Davis’ three point attempt at the buzzer hit only the iron as time ran out and the Tigers were on the wrong side of a 56-55 final.

Princeton made a woeful 15 of 29 free throws (51.7%), which was barely better than Elon’s 12-23 (52.2%).

“Anytime you get 19 offensive rebounds and you shoot 29 free throws, you like your chances,” said head coach Mitch Henderson after the orange and black’s third loss in four games. “A pretty disappointing result tonight.”

Ian Hummer had 18 for the Tigers on 5-21 shooting, 2-14 in the opening frame. He was joined in double figures by Davis with 12.

Drew Spradlin’s 13 paced three Phoenix in double digits.
