21 – Consecutive wins. Nationwide, only two teams enter the postseason with longer streaks: No. 1 Connecticut (72 games) and No. 2 Stanford (22).

80 – Assists by versatile forward Niveen Rasheed ’13, a team high. Rasheed also leads Princeton in scoring, rebounds, and steals.

22.4 – Princeton’s average margin of victory in 14 Ivy League games. Its closest contest was a 69-57 win over Columbia at Jadwin Gym.

8 – Ivy championships for the Princeton women. The 2010 title is Princeton’s first outright championship since the league ended its postseason tournament in 1982.

5 – NCAA Tournament trips for coach Courtney Banghart, including two as a player at Dartmouth (1999, 2000) and two as a Dartmouth assistant coach (2004, 2006).

68.2 – Points per game by Princeton freshmen, sophomores, juniors. Ninety-five percent of the Tigers’ offensive output came from players who will return next season. “We’re certainly not going to be a one-hit wonder,” Banghart said.
