WOMEN’S BASKETBALL is off to a 4-2 start that includes impressive wins over Southern California, Delaware, and Lehigh, and a pair of close losses at Rutgers and No. 22 Vanderbilt. Senior captain Addie Micir was the hero in the Southern Cal game Nov. 26, sinking two free-throws with five seconds remaining to put the Tigers on top, 60-59. She followed that performance with a 20-point game against Vanderbilt and an 18-point effort at Delaware in which she hit six of seven 3-point attempts. Through six games, Micir leads Princeton in 3-pointers (3.8 per game) and ranks second on the team in scoring (13.8 points per game).
In MEN’S BASKETBALL, Princeton has won its last two contests, scoring more than 80 points in back-to-back games for the first time since 1975. Against Siena Nov. 28, Dan Mavraides ’11 hit a clutch 3-pointer to send the game into overtime, and Kareem Maddox ’11 led Princeton with a remarkable all-around performance that included 30 points, 10 rebounds, and three blocks. At Lafayette Nov. 30, Ian Hummer ’13 made 10 of 12 field-goal attempts to lead the Tigers with 22 points in a convincing win over the Leopards.
MEN’S HOCKEY hosts Clarkson and St. Lawrence Dec. 3 and 4 in Princeton’s last two ECAC Hockey games before the league takes a hiatus for fall-term exams at most of the member schools. The Tigers have rebounded from a sluggish start, winning five of their last six games, including shutout victories over Harvard and Quinnipiac.
