LOCKED AND LOADED: Princeton University mens basketball senior star Kyle koncz prepares to fire a jumper in recent action. Last Saturday, Koncz poured in a career-high 24 points to help Princeton top Harvard 68-54. The 67, 200-pound forward scored 21 points in the first half and ended the night with six 3-pointers as the Tigers improved to 5-12 overall and 2-0 in Ivy League play.
Kyle Koncz had a devil of a time getting a shot last Friday night as the Princeton University mens basketball team hosted Dartmouth.
The senior forward and co-captain generated only one shot and was held scoreless on the night but contributed in other ways, grabbing seven rebounds and making three steals as Princeton prevailed 57-53.
A night later against visiting Harvard, Koncz couldnt stop shooting, pouring in 21 points in the first half, essentially operating as a one-man offensive show as Princeton took a 33-31 lead into intermission.
It didnt take long for Kathleen Morrison to realize that she and the Princeton High girls swimming team were in for a big day last Saturday at the Mercer County Swimming Championship finals.
Swimming in the 200-meter freestyle, the meets third event, Morrison cruised to a surprising second place finish, some two seconds behind WW/P-S Paola Simon.
The Princeton High boys basketball team started last week by pulling out one of the most dramatic and significant overtime wins the program has enjoyed in years.
Hosting powerful Hamilton on January 29, PHS went 36 minutes to edge the Hornets 67-63 to clinch the programs first berth in the state tournament since 2001.
Three days later, the Little Tigers ended the week by engaging a thrilling triple overtime contest with visiting Ewing.
She happily lugged four chairs over her shoulder to clear up the bench area and picked up a stray water bottle off the court for good measure.
For Hun School girls basketball senior star Emily Gratch, carrying the load for the Raiders comes naturally.
A starter from the day she walked in the door as a freshman, Gratch has gone on to produce one of the greatest careers in Hun hoops history.
Anna Lutz gained some valuable lessons during her years playing in the Dillon Youth Basketball League.
I have great memories of the Dillon League; I played all the way through middle school, said Lutz, who debuted in the 1988-99 season as a fourth grader in the league where the coaches are all Princeton University students.
