Five 1980s Princeton films.

An unexpected find this morning - five short clips from the late 1980s documenting five different successful Princeton basketball plays. I've tried to add details where I could figure them out, but if you can contribute additional notes, please share in the comments!

Given the existence of the three point line and Joe Scott (#4) on the floor for the Tigers, I believe the above Alan Williams (#24) to Dave Orlandini (#21) layup comes from a 93-77 win over defending Ivy champion Brown on January 30th, 1987.

That is John Thompson III wearing #22. Also on the floor - Mike Harnum (#30).

Scott scored 23 and Williams added 21 for Princeton, who shot 8-11 from three.

This second play is listed as an Alan Williams three pointer from the top of the key, but I don't see an arc painted on the floor. However, the only time Princeton visited Seton Hall when Alan Williams, Joe Scott and John Thompson III were all in school together was an 89-70 loss in 1986.

#34 is sophomore Bob Scrabis.

Back to Jadwin, with Alan Williams faking a three and stepping in to the midrange deuce.

Princeton breaks the Brown press, with Williams scoring while being fouled. Harnum on the assist.

Also pictured, senior Aaron Belz (#43).
