Princeton 61 Buffalo 53.

Postgame audio - Coach Mitch Henderson, Ian Hummer & T.J. Bray:

Box Score : HD Box Score

20 minutes of basketball at home on a Saturday afternoon in front of a sparse crowd versus visiting Buffalo may not have completely revealed who Princeton is quite yet, but it certainly was an eye-opening look at what the Tigers are capable of.

The orange and black built a daunting 18-4 lead after 11 minutes of play on a pair of Brendan Connolly free throws. Playing their best half of the young season, Princeton was able to open up as wide as a 25 point advantage.

In front 37-16 at the break, the Tigers fought their way through long stretches of aggressive, extended pressure 1-3-1 and 2-3 trapping defense from the Bulls and found enough offensive support for Ian Hummer and Douglas Davis to record Mitch Henderson’s first win as a collegiate head coach.

“What we wanted to do right away was go at them and I think we did that nicely,” Henderson said of his team’s assertive performance.

For The 800 Games Project: The Chase

When I returned home from Raleigh this evening I wrote an essay entitled "The Chase" for the Mid Majority and their ambitious 800 Games Project.

Unfortunately, I didn't read their fine print which specifies that all games must be reserved in advance for publication. My attempts to plead a "Bill Murray exception" were unsuccessful so please enjoy the following which was intended for a different site but I felt still had to run somewhere. - JS

I travel chasing a moment.

Up and down I-95 since I was old enough to drive across state lines - headed to Durham, headed to Columbia, headed to Raleigh, headed to Washington, headed to Winston Salem, headed to Syracuse, headed to Louisville. I’ve witnessed that moment before and I chase after the notion it will happen again.

"The Field."

There was a lot of discussion in yesterday's recap of the NC State game as well as in the subsequent member comments about Princeton's need for a third consistent scoring option.

This got me thinking during the portions of the long drive back from Raleigh where I was conscious - How do the Tigers' offensive statistics look when divided into two distinct categories:

A) Ian Hummer & Douglas Davis
B) "The Field" consisting of the other 15 players on the roster.

NC State 60 Princeton 58.

Postgame audio - Coach Mitch Henderson:

Postgame audio - Douglas Davis & Ian Hummer:

Box Score : HD Box Score

The difference in effort and execution between Saturday’s dismal start to the 2011-12 season versus Wagner and yesterday evening’s game at North Carolina State was significant.

Princeton played the game they wanted to play at a more manageable speed, cutting down on many of their defensive lapses and turnovers.

Unfortunately, the end result was the same when time expired.

DeShawn Painter’s long jumper from just inside the three point line broke a 58-58 tie with four seconds left and ruined this much-improved performance by the Tigers in Raleigh.

Less than half a minute earlier Douglas Davis knotted the score with a three point shot drifting to his right, Davis’ fifth three and the seventh deadlock of the evening.

Princeton was unable to get off a better look than a half court try by Ian Hummer as time ran out.

Davis (21 points) and Hummer (15 points) found offensive support from the rest of their lineup in stretches but Mitch Henderson is still looking for both a third offensive option as well as his first win as a collegiate head coach.
