Three Way Dance - Hummer vs. Davis vs. Mueller.

With the 2012-13 season in the books, last year's Tale Of The Tape comparing the careers of Doug Davis '12 and Kit Mueller '91 has been updated to include the complete body of work turned in by Ian Hummer '13.

You'll find comprehensive stat-by-stat-by-stat comparisons for Princeton's all-time second, third and fourth-leading scorers after the jump.

If there's a number you would like to see added above let me know and I'll do my best to generate.

*Princeton did not list starts in their 1989-90 media guide, but I believe this to be correct.

**Offensive rebounds are not included because that information is only in one of the four media guides from Mueller's playing days. Hummer had 211 ORs, Davis had 40 for his career and Mueller grabbed 40 second chances as a freshmen.

Great idea Jon. Always fun to look back on the careers of some of the Tigers' all-time standouts. Mueller's stats helped to bring out the genius in Pete Carril! 36.8 min/g and a FG% over 59 in 107 games...80 wins and post-seasons galore...Among Hummer's numbers the rebounds demonstrate his value as much as his scoring. To me Davis will be remembered for his knack for making the big shot at the end of the clock, to keep a rally going or to stop the other team's momentum. And, of course, for The Shot.

For Jon and the group - For each of Kit, Doug and Ian, what was their "signature" win against a non-Ivy team? I fondly recall the Loyola Marymount game and Kit's gamesmanship in that game, but LM was not a great team that year.

For Ian it has to be his 25 pt 15 rb effort at FSU (which I believe went on to win the ACC tournament) last year in 3OT. It's less clear for Doug...maybe the game against Evansville where he couldn't miss anything and moved into 2nd place all-time in scoring? A bit anti-climatic in that it came in the CBI, but I couldn't think of anything better.

Fun question, Jon.

I'd second Daniel by choosing the FSU game for Hummer. The baseline dunk at the end was memorable.

For Doug, how about his first college game? 25 points versus Central Michigan. Quite the introduction at Jadwin Gym.

The way DDD finished off Evansville was pretty spectacular.

While Loyola Marymount was down that year, Kit Mueller did go 8-8 from the floor for a 21 point and six rebound line with nine assists versus one turnover. Fairly awesome.

I'd have to look at some of Kit's other non-conference stat lines.

I still have the Evansville game on my DVR. Maybe I should watch it again in lieu of new games this post-season.
