500 CLUB: Princeton University men’s basketball senior guard Marcus Schroeder looks to make a pass in recent action. Last Saturday, Schroeder chipped in nine points and three steals as Princeton topped Dartmouth 54-38. In the process, Schroeder reached the 500-point mark in his Tiger career.

Bill Alden

There has been a buzz around the Harvard University men’s basketball team this winter.

The program was recently chronicled in Sports Illustrated and many have designated the Crimson as the main challengers to two-time defending Ivy League champion Cornell.

But as the Princeton University men’s basketball team headed up to the Boston area last Friday to take on Harvard — which had fallen to Cornell the week before — the Tigers weren’t fazed by the hoopla surrounding the Crimson.

Daniel Kolodzik was a wrestler without a team during his high school days.

“I went to a school with 43 kids in my graduating class, so I competed as an individual,” said Kolodzik, who grew up in Pellbrook, Ohio and went to the Miami Valley School.

“My dad was my coach and I was fortunate enough to train about 30 minutes away.”

Bill Alden

Things looked pretty bleak for the Hun School girls’ basketball team as it headed into its exam break in mid-January.

After falling 44-37 to the Hill School on January 16, the Raiders stood at 4-8, having lost four of their last five games.

In its first action after the break, Hun hit the road for an overnight trip to Mercersburg Academy (Pa.) and came back with a more positive outlook.

With Freshman Reed Developing Into a Star, PDS Boys’ Hoops Primed for Post-Season Play

Bill Alden

Davon Reed felt overmatched as he made his debut for the Princeton Day School boys’ basketball team this past December.

Playing against powerful Pennington and its backcourt of veteran stars Chandler Fraser-Pauls and Harold Spears was a challenging indoctrination for freshman guard Reed.

“It was rough for me playing against Pennington in the opener,” recalled Reed. “Over time, things have gotten better.”
