GLAD TO HELP: Princeton University men’s basketball player Will Gladson puts up a shot in a game this season. Sophomore forward Gladson ended an injury-plagued season on a personal high note as he scored a career-high 16 points in a 94-90 overtime loss at Yale in the season finale on March 3. Gladson figures to be a key performer in the future as the Tigers will look to bounce back from a tough 2017-18 campaign that saw them go 13-16 overall and 5-9 Ivy League.
