"Sometimes you talk about '50/50' balls. It was like '90/10' [Harvard] tonight." - Princeton coach Mitch Henderson

The Crimson did all the little things better than the Tigers at Lavietes Pavilion, translated all the small plays into huge ones and on the heels of consecutive three point shots by Laurent Rivard that were both set up via controlling loose balls before the Tigers could snare them, took a lead late in the first half they would sustain throughout the final 20 minutes.

Rivard's second jumper was an absurd corkscrew blind turn-around three as time expired, but it would not have occurred if Princeton had been able to grab an Ian Hummer block that hung in the air pleading for two hands to snatch it. Rivard's unbelievable shot made it 32-28 Crimson at intermission.

The Harvard lead would extend to as many as 11 before five straight by the Tigers midway through the back stanza put them in position to make a run. However Princeton had three tries at the rim roll off and missed the front end of a one-and-one before the unexpectedly poised Crimson responded with four straight points from Kenyatta Smith and the Tigers were slowly submerged.

Smith, making his second straight start after 15 consecutive games coming off the bench, was 5-5 from the field with seven rebounds and six blocks, all in just 20 minutes. In addition to 14 points Saturday he swatted an unreal 16 shots on the weekend.

Steve Moundou-Missi added 14 off the pine, the only player on either side to score who wasn't a starter. Rivard's four threes gave him 12 and freshman Siyani Chambers added 11.

For Princeton, Ian Hummer fought his way to 18 somewhat quietly with T.J. Bray and Will Barrett adding 11. Hans Brase also had 10 before fouling out.

The rest of this recap plus postgame audio from Coach Mitch Henderson & Ian Hummer can be found after the jump.

Princeton recruit Spencer Weisz had 14 points and seven steals in Seton Hall Prep's victory over the Fighting Schulers of Columbia High.

Future Tiger Steven Cook and New Trier fell in a battle for the CSL South conference title versus Maine South.

Princeton 73 Dartmouth 55.

Box Score : HD Box Score

It was all about the execution.

Princeton scored on 10 of their opening 11 first half possessions, shot 56.3% as a team on the night and were never legitimately challenged by Dartmouth after an even 10 minutes in Hanover.

Tied at 19 following a three point shot by Malik Gill, the Tigers went on a swift 15-3 run and made it to halftime up by 14.

To start the second half the Tigers again were exceptionally potent across the board with the ball, converting on five of their initial six times up the floor concluding with a Hans Brase two-hand slam that provided the visitors a 53-33 margin.

There was no subsequent drama. The lead from this point would not drop under 15 and extended as high as 25.

“I think it started off just with us taking care of the ball offensively. In the second half I think we showed the picture a little bit better defensively,” said Princeton head coach Mitch Henderson.

Four Tiger starters hit double figures, led by Denton Koon with 18 points. Ian Hummer had 14 plus a 6:1 assist-to-turnover ratio, Brase totaled 12 and Will Barrett 11.

T.J. Bray missed out on joining his fellow starters by a digit but did add six assists.

The one Big Green player the Tigers could not stop was Gabas Maldunas who scored 16 inside.

The Trentonian, the Daily Princetonian and the Crimson all have previews of this weekend's games to share.

Depleted Northwestern (13-12) played valiantly at Ohio State but a late 17-5 Buckeyes run with the Wildcats up two entering the game's final five minutes was the difference.

Derek Needham knocked down eight three pointers as Fairfield (16-11) topped Siena, 74-52.

Mercer (18-9) fell 74-59 to undefeated Brookdale.

A wild overtime affair went 63-60 to Denver (16-8) over Utah State on Brett Olson's three point shot at the buzzer. The final play is available as an animated .gif below.

Georgetown visits Cincinnati this evening.

Know! Your! Foe! - Harvard.

Michael James of the @ivybball Twitter account joins us this afternoon to discuss the Harvard Crimson for the seventh of this site's Know! Your! Foe! conference previews.

My questions and his answers follow after the jump. I have a great deal of respect for the time and detail James puts in to his Ivy League analysis and I think you'll feel similarly after reading his in-depth responses.

I should also mention that James is a Rush The Court contributor.

Know! Your! Foe! - Dartmouth.

Princeton heads all the way up to Hanover on Friday as they begin an Ivy League stretch run that includes seven of their final nine contests played away from home.

To learn more about a youthful Dartmouth squad for today's Know! Your! Foe!, the only person to talk with was writer Bruce Wood, founder of Big Green Alert, who has been covering Dartmouth athletics for as long as I can remember.

Our conversation follows after the jump. Look for a Harvard edition of K!Y!F! on Thursday.
