David Zeft, whose photographs were first shared on the site at the start of the month, came up to me on Saturday night at Jadwin Gym carrying a yellow plastic bag filled with a stack of historic shots from the past 30 years of Princeton basketball.
I've scanned an initial octet of images this afternoon, the majority of which follow after the jump. Some serious treats here with more of equal quality to come down the line. I can't thank him enough.
Above, the overflow Selection Sunday crowd for the 1990-91 made-for-CBS regular season finale against Loyola Marymount. Shot taken by climbing a camera stanchion!
Is Pete Carril angry, elated or both? Moments later he was on top of a dogpile when Princeton beat Brown to clinch the 1983-84 Ivy title, but I'm still not sure!
Bob Scrabis '89 at the free throw line.
An untucked Kit Mueller from his freshman year, the only season where he wore #55. I think David told me that this picture was taken by one of his pre-teen children!
Sydney Johnson as a player and Joe Scott (nice tie!) as an assistant coach.
Matt Henshon '91.
Honoring the 1965 Final Four team in 1990. Click to enlarge. You might be in the background. If you're the Princeton Tiger or Chip Unruh, you're particularly easy to find...
Chris Mooney '94.
