It's the final day of the women's basketball trip to California. After a terrific performance last night versus No. 3 Cal, the team stuck around to watch some of the St. Louis/TCU game. Dinner followed at Pyramid, where coincidentally, members of the Cal team were seated right next to the Princeton tables. The athletes settled into bed early to rest up for Sunday's game. The team met for film and shoot-around this morning and are now warming up for its game with St. Louis. TigerBlog has been getting a hard time from the team for wearing a blue shirt to today's game. Not only is it blue, but the exact blue of the St. Louis Bilikens. An error in judgement on TigerBlog's part when packing on Wednesday night. After the game the team will head to an alumni reception, where at least 20 Princeton alums will get to meet the players and coaching staff. The Tigers will take the red eye out of San Francisco tonight, leaving at 10:30 p.m., and will arrive in Newark at 6:30 a.m., with an arrival back at Jadwin at 8:30 a.m.
