STARTING POINT: Mitch Henderson makes a point last Thursday at the press conference where he was introduced as the new head coach of the Princeton University men’s basketball program. Henderson, a 1998 Princeton alum and standout point guard for the Tigers, is replacing former teammate Sydney Johnson, who recently left his alma mater to take over the Fairfield men’s hoops program. Henderson has spent the last 11 years as an assistant coach for the Northwestern University men’s hoops team under former Princeton mentor Bill Carmody.
