Pete Miller commits to Princeton.

12 alumni of prep powerhouse Northfield Mount Hermon will suit up for Ivy League teams in 2012-13, but Princeton does not currently have a NMH grad on their roster.

This will change next season as 6'10" Pete Miller has committed to join Steven Cook in Mitch Henderson's 2013 recruiting class.

Miller hails from Winchester, MA and plays his AAU ball for Middlesex Magic.

NERR, Hoop Dreams, New England Hoop News and the Boston Herald have more on Miller's decision.

Since this original post went live I've talked to both Miller's AAU coach and his head coach for a full profile of the latest Tiger that should (hopefully) be finished tomorrow.

Five additional videos follow after the jump.

Monday News:

Congratulations are in order for Mitch Henderson and his wife on the birth of their son Theodore Robert (not pictured above).

Pete Carril was profiled in El Pais. I ran the article through Google Translate which should make it somewhat easier to parse the content if you don't speak Spanish.

Carril and Coach Henderson met soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimović when French football club Paris Saint-Germain practiced at Princeton recently.

The Dave Blatt-coached Russian team opened group play at the 2012 Olympics with a 95-75 victory over host nation Great Britain.

A pair of scheduling updates: Georgetown has been matched with UCLA in the second Legends Classic semifinal and Oregon State will play Alabama at MSG in one of the 2K Sports Classic's semis.

It was poor fastball location that plagued Chris Young (2-5) on Saturday night in Arizona. Young allowed seven hits and six earned runs in four innings of work as the Mets fell 6-3 to the Diamondbacks.

One sentence of praise for Ian Hummer from someone who has watched a good number of Kenner League games over the years.

Men's basketball is one of the sports to potentially benefit by the creation of the Ralph DeNunzio ’53 and Nike Endowment Fund at Princeton.

Rider heads back to Jadwin this December.

If you've listened to part one of this week's exclusive interview with Princeton head coach Mitch Henderson, you already knew that Rider will visit Princeton for the first time in over a decade this season.

That matchup now has a date, which has been added to the tentative 2012-13 schedule on your right.

Thursday News:

Scott Greenman is one of those scheduled to suit up at the 24th Annual Chuck’s 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament.

The Cornell schedule for 2012-13 has been released, allowing the insertion of games versus the Big Red and Columbia in the tentative schedule to your right.

I think it is fair to also expect the Dartmouth/Harvard road trip to be the weekend of February 16th and those two teams to return to Jadwin in reverse order the weekend of March 1st. If Penn concludes the conference slate (as tradition has dictated), the only remaining question is where the first game versus the Quakers slots and whether that would come prior to the exam break or not.

Will Venable (video) dropped in a two run double to give San Diego a lead they would not relinquish versus San Francisco yesterday.

Mitch Henderson - Summer interview (part two).

Here's part two of yesterday's conversation with Princeton men's basketball coach Mitch Henderson. If you missed part one, it can be found here.

In this segment (which runs a more manageable 6:00+) topics of conversation include:

The Tigers' upcoming trip to Spain, what cities the team will be visiting, who is eligible to go overseas, how much practice time is allowed before departure, what Coach Henderson took away from previous European visits as both a player and a coach, Summer leagues and Henderson's feelings on the Ivy League turning down a postseason tournament proposal.

Wednesday News:

Georgetown has announced their 2012-13 non-conference home schedule.

Two batters in to his most recent start, Chris Young had already allowed a single and a home run. Young would then find his rhythm and retire 18 of the next 20 he faced without giving up another hit, striking out seven and lowering his ERA to 3.91. The end result was a no decision as Young departed after seven innings and the Mets fell to Washington in extra frames.

Craig Robinson was at the Oregon Air National Guard base to greet his brother-in-law yesterday.

The signing of Mason Rocca by Virtus Bologna is discussed.

Mitch Henderson - Summer interview (part one).

I had a chance to tape a wide-ranging interview with Princeton basketball head coach Mitch Henderson at Jadwin Gym today.

This Q&A has been divided into two segments, the longer of which can be streamed after the jump and the second of which will go live tomorrow.

In part one (which runs 21:00+) topics of conversation include:

Preparing for year two versus prepping for Henderson's first season at the helm, the incoming three man freshman class, changes to recruiting and the Evaluation Periods that went into effect this off-season, the program's new Director of Basketball Operations, Princeton's various basketball camps and the 2012-13 schedule.

Also off the transaction wire, former Tiger Konrad Wysocki has signed with EWE Baskets Oldenburg of Germany's Bundesliga.

T.J. Bray suited up over the weekend at the Milwaukee Summer Pro-Am. Jimmy Sherburne did not.

This is intriguing: A very tall Australian mentions in passing he has been contacted by Princeton.

Not only did Will Venable come off the bench to drive in what would be the game-winning run (video) for San Diego yesterday, he also made a spectacular extra innings catch two days prior you really must see.

Chris Young, who will take the mound for the Mets tonight, had a personal interest in the team's Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Night.

A different year but the same question: Will an NCAA Tournament bid ever come for Northwestern?

Thursday News:

Sophomore guard Clay Wilson is preparing for a breakout second season at Princeton.

T.J. Bray and Jimmy Sherburne played their first game as teammates in the Milwaukee Summer Pro-Am. While both put up nice stat lines, it is concerning to read Sherburne had to leave the contest due to a shoulder injury.

Mason Rocca has an offer on the table from Virtus Bologna and is expected to give them an answer today.

Matching shutout innings with Jordan Zimmermann into the sixth, Chris Young (2-4) allowed a two run home run by Adam LaRoche and that was enough to send the Mets to defeat. Young gave up six hits and was aided by a pair of double plays.

The NCAA's new summer practice rule is benefitting everyone but the Ivy League.

Monday News:

T.J. Bray and Jimmy Sherburne are teammates back home this summer in the Milwaukee Summer Pro-Am. While Sherburne has yet to suit up, box scores for Schell Dentistry's first and second games are available.

The details on Young's incentive-laden deal with New York are interesting.

His team down to its last strike, Will Venable (video) was right in the middle of a bizarre sequence that allowed San Diego to rally past Los Angeles.

A specific email cemented the relationship between Chris Mooney and his Athletic Director at Richmond.
