When I took a look at Princeton through seven games the Tigers sported a 3-4 record.

In the next seven contests - getting us to the season's halfway point - Princeton went 4-3.

On paper you'll see little more than one additional victory and one less loss but the second quarter of the 2012-13 has been far more intriguing than that.

After the jump you can find lengthy analysis and projections as conversation starters, plus updates on some numbers to track throughout the season.

Princeton 65 Penn 53.

Box Score : HD Box Score




Those are the only three senior classes in Princeton basketball history to sweep four games from Penn at Jadwin Gym. Ian Hummer, Brendan Connolly and Mack Darrow added their names to an exclusive list this evening after the Tigers' 65-53 victory over the Quakers.

It was a game Princeton led the final 36:20 of, answering Greg Louis' three point shot with nine straight out the gate and turning a 31-22 halftime advantage into a comfortable margin behind 11 in a row after intermission.

In both runs junior guard T.J. Bray knocked down a three pointer. Bray hit six times from behind the arc in 11 tries, recording a career high 23 points plus three rebounds and no turnovers.

“It was just one of those days where shots are falling down,” said Bray. “They were coming in the flow of the offense, which was big. Ian had a couple nice passes to me and I was able to just step in and shoot.”

Hummer scored 13 and fellow senior Darrow added eight off the bench plus five assists and no miscues in a point-center role.

Tony Hicks slashed his way to 16 for Penn on 18 shots, 13 of the freshman's tallies coming in the second half. The Quakers scored the game's final seven points after the result was no longer in question.

Postgame audio from Coach Mitch Henderson, Ian Hummer & T.J. Bray plus the rest of this recap can all be found after the jump.
