Princeton will return five of their top six leading scorers from 2012-13 including four starters and a pair of All-Ivy selections in T.J. Bray (second team) and Denton Koon (honorable mention). They also retain the services of Division I's top three point shooter, Will Barrett.
Gone is the Ivy League's Player of the Year, Ian Hummer. With the additional losses of Mack Darrow and Brendan Connolly the Tigers go from a front court-focused squad to one with a greater back court balance.

Princeton recruit Henry Caruso was named the Daily News' Boys Basketball Player of the Year.
Yesterday I posted about Luke Owings and his involvement with the Fullbridge Program. Owings adds that "Anyone who wants to learn more about the company or about the coaching role, please reach out to me. I'm always looking to contract out coaches and I can't imagine a richer network for that than the Princeton basketball one."
The Chicago Tribune writes that a Deerfield High School guard's senior season was "a precursor to his involvement in college basketball, which will begin at either Harvard, Princeton or La Salle." I'm not sure what that wording means.
While it doesn't directly tie to basketball, I still wanted to acknowledge the death of Rabbi Jim Diamond, who was killed yesterday in a bizarre accident.
I knew Rabbi Diamond as a fellow WPRB DJ, through his friendship with my parents and from interviewing him about the late Marvin Bressler two years ago.
(He described Marvin perfectly with the line "He was a profound and responsible skeptic.")
Diamond was also Professor Bressler's choice to lead his funeral ceremony and it was Diamond who permitted the beautiful gesture of Bressler being buried with a basketball to occur.
Rabbi Diamond was a friend to many at Princeton and a kind, funny man. My condolences.
A funeral is scheduled for Sunday at 1:00 pm ET at the Jewish Center in Princeton.
