March 8th - Basketball vs Yale

Join us Friday at 7pm to cheer on our Princeton Tigers as they take on the Bulldogs!

Highlights and post-game from Harvard game last weekend

Princeton currently leads the Ivy League with a 9-3 record; one of those three losses, though, was to Yale on an earlier meeting at Princeton. This weekend, our Tigers hope to return the favor of an at-home loss to Yale, and also add another win to our path toward the league championship. Details and statistics can be found at GoPrincetonTigers.com.

Tickets can be purchased online or in person at Payne Whitney Gym (map), and range from $8 to $12.
