ROUGH KNIGHT: Princeton University men’s basketball sophomore star Lincoln Gunn finds the going tough last Saturday as he looks for room in Princeton’s 54-50 loss at Rutgers. Gunn starred in the defeat to the Scarlet Knights, producing the first double-double of his career with a team-high 13 points and a career-high 10 rebounds.

Lincoln Gunn had just produced one of the best all-around games in his career with the Princeton University men’s basketball team but he wasn’t happy.

The 6’3, 180-pound sophomore guard scored 13 points, snared a career-high 10 rebounds, and had three assists but his effort went for naught as the Tigers fell 54-50 to Rutgers last Saturday before a crowd of 4,527 at the Louis Brown Athletic Center.

Showing attention to detail at both ends of the ice, the Princeton University men’s hockey team roared out of the gate this season with a 3-0 start.

In winning the games at Yale, Cornell, and Colgate, the Tigers outscored their foes by a combined 11-4 and seemed poised to have a big November.

But Princeton’s focus wavered and the team went on to drop five of its next six contests, including four straight home contests.

Bill Alden

Tony Bowman admits that his Stuart Country Day School basketball team lacks height.

But Bowman doesn’t believe that means it will be a tall order for his team to improve on the 11-12 record it posted last winter.
