For 20 minutes last Sunday, the Princeton University men’s basketball team seemed to have picked up where it left off in last season when the Tigers plummeted to the Ivy League cellar.

Hosting Central Connecticut State in the season opener and the debut of new head coach Sydney Johnson, Princeton hit on just 5-of-19 shots in the first half and trailed 24-16 at the break.

It’s not often that a team gets a second chance to have a happy ending but that’s what happened for the Princeton Day School football squad this fall.
