Princeton vs. Concordia Men's Basketball

Final: Princeton 64, Concordia 44
TigerBlog apologizes for the technical difficulties we encountered with the TigerBlog laptop, but here are a few final notes: Seven Tigers, the most since Dec. 16, 2007 against Manhattan, hit three-pointers, a fact that was accomplished by the first seven threes Princeton took. Thanks to Jon Solomon of for noticing the last part of that note. Also, for the first time this season, Princeton took more free throws than its opponent, six to three. The Tigers also matched a season-high with nine three pointers, a feat accomplished in each of the last two games.

18:00 2nd: Princeton 35, Concordia 21
The Tigers are shooting 44.8% to Concordia's 25.8%, obviously a huge reason for the difference in the game. So are Concordia's nine turnovers to Princeton's two, which is on the way to the lowest total of the season for the Tigers. It has more than offset Concordia's significant rebounding edge of 25-15.

2:30 1st: Princeton 29, Concordia 17
Pawel Buczak? More like Pawel BOOM-czak, at least for one play. The junior from down I-295 in Moorestown slams it home for the first time this season.

3:30 1st: Princeton 25, Concordia 17
TigerBlog can personally verify that the huge cake being served in honor of Jadwin Gym's 40th birthday is both yummy and pretty. What's also pretty is the up-and-under layup by Douglas Davis, which gave Princeton a 25-17 lead.

5:00 1st: Princeton 23, Concordia 12
Judging early on, it looked like Concordia's lack of rust (the Clippers played yesterday on Long Island against Adelphi) out-did Princeton's having not played since Jan. 7 due to finals. But Douglas Davis just gave Princeton its largest lead with a three-pointer.

8:30 1st: Princeton 16, Concordia 9
The Clippers started the game on a 5-0 run, but Princeton scored the next 10 points. Threes by Nick Lake and John Comfort, who made his earliest appearance of the season today, gave the Tigers a 16-7 lead before Concordia had the last bucket.

Hello from Jadwin Gym, where Princeton basketball is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its home arena.
