Hello from eastern Pennsylvania where the Princeton women's basketball is warming up for its first game of the new year against Lafayette College. The campus is pretty empty, being as though the students are on break, but there was a men's game here earlier this afternoon. There was a good crowd for that game so hopefully that will repeat itself tonight. The Tigers will be wearing orange uniforms for tonight's game. This is just the second time the team has sported the orange jerseys. The last time they wore them was against George Washington, where they had an impressive showing against a team that went to the Sweet 16 last year. Senior Whitney Downs will be a scratch player again tonight. The coaching staff is hoping to have her healthy and back on the court by the time Ivy League play begins.

Thanks for maintaining the blog. It's nice also for fans here in Eastern Pennsylvania, of which I'm sure there are many, to be able to keep up with team events.
