Drexel 54 Princeton 41

Original post: 9:19 p.m. on November 14, right after the game.

Not much else to report except a score from Yahoo!. The Tigers were playing at home. Now the Tigers know how much work they have to do.


A friend who attended the game said it was just plain ugly. The Tigers couldn't do anything inside, and at one point in the first half the team's best three players -- G Scott Greenman and Fs Luke Owings and Noah Savage -- were on the bench with three fouls. Princeton's key reserves averaged about 2 points a game last year, and before the game Princeton coach Joe Scott told the Princeton faithful that the Tigers had a young team.

The box score was ugly. Tigers were outrebounded 46-17, shot a hair under 33% for the game (although they had 8 turnovers to Drexel's 13). They had no inside game. All in all, just a bad night for Princeton.

Thanks to Ivy Basketball for some links that provided good information on the game, and thanks to Princeton Basketball News for posting the box score.
