Awards Banquet.

Princeton held its annual awards banquet in the lobby of Jadwin Gym tonight.

The worthy recipients of honors at the 2011-2012 banquet included:

Class of 1959 Bob Rock Sixth Man Award - Mack Darrow.
B.F. Bunn Trophy - Doug Davis.
Friedman Memorial Award Trophy - John Comfort.

Davis and Ian Hummer were also recognized for their All-Ivy status.

It was easily the shortest banquet on record. Not having Marvin Bressler as the MC anymore and all three seniors being fairly quiet in public will speed a night crisply along.

The fact this event was held on what would have been Bressler's birthday was a nice, purely accidental touch.

Pete Carril was asked to introduce the Friedman award and recalled the story behind the man this plaque is named after.

John Comfort (who said his thesis was due tomorrow), Patrick Saunders (who was recently admitted to the University of Vermont pre-Med program) and Doug Davis each gave brief remarks after the full team was called up to receive their varsity letters.

It was personally heartwarming to hear head coach Mitch Henderson single out my father's photo of Ian Hummer's dunk versus Cornell from the dais.

All the food looked great. Wish it hadn't been Passover!

A few photos follow after the jump.

Framed action shots for each of the three seniors. Varsity "P" letters to the far right.

An image of Davis accompanies one of the entrees at the buffet.

Team photo once someone remembered to invite manager Matthew Blackburn up!

I'm gonna have to review the photos of that Hummer dunk. I remember it being epic, but I don't remember him dunking from the dais. #iansanity

I hope all felt honored. Thanks to a great senior class.

One honor I neglected to mention: Henderson asked the seniors' parents to stand for recognition. Princeton isn't just graduating a quality class on the floor...
