Harvard vs Princeton Basketball Game Preview

The Crimson have played 10 games without Ledlum and seem to have found how to run their offense without him, scoring 74 points or more in two out of their last three games after being held to 65 points or fewer in five of their previous six games.

The Princeton Tigers have won nine of their first 11 Ivy League games and trail Yale by a half-game for first place. On Saturday, Princeton outscored Yale by six points during the second half of an 81-75 home victory versus Yale. The Tigers (19-5) outrebounded the Bulldogs by a 40-34 margin and shot 48 percent from the field.

Princeton look to continue a four-game winning streak against Harvard on Friday to stay in the race for first place in the Ivy League. Yale currently holds the top spot in the standings in a tie with Princeton.

“I’ve been here four years and missed out on a year, so I think it makes everything mean that much more,” Princeton Tigers senior guard Ethan Wright said per Kyle Franko of the Trentonian. “I’ve played in one Ivy League Tournament and didn’t get to play the last time. Winning the Ivy League regular season, it will still mean the world to us.”

The Tigers boast the high-scoring offense in the Ivy League. Tosan Evbuomwan leads the Tigers in scoring with 15.4 points per game. Three other Tigers average double figures — Ethan Wright with 15.3 points, Jaelin Llewellyn with 14.4 points, and Ryan Langborg with 11.1 points.

Evboumwan also crashes the boards well and sets up the offense with his 6.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per contest. He also averages 1.5 steals per night.
