The Princeton Starting Five

#20 – Douglas Davis, Guard 5’11, Junior
(11.9 ppg, 1.7 apg, 1.7 rpg, 3.4 GPA)

Davis needs three points to move to 15th on the school’s all-time scoring list with 1,100 points. He hit the game-winning buzzer beater to win the Ivy League’s automatic bid against Harvard. The buzzer beater was Davis’ second this season – the first being his “atlantoaxial” answer on the final question of the Quiz Bowl.

#33 – Dan Mavraides, Guard 6’4′, Senior
(12.7 ppg, 2.8 apg, 4.6 rpg, 3.85 GPA)

Senior guard Dan Mavraides is 26th on Princeton’s all-time scoring list. He is the only player to start all 31 games for Princeton this season. Mavraides was named second-team All-Ivy in 2010 and 2011, and was a student design contest winner at International Symposium on Low-Power Electronics and Design.

#22 – Patrick Saunders, Forward 6’8, Junior
(5.6 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 3.8 GPA)

Saunders shocked the Ivy League basketball world when he evaluated L1-, L2-, and hybrid-regularized (Elastic Net) regression for prediction of brain function from fMRI data with regard to prediction accuracy, interpretation, and robustness. He missed two games last season with a broken wrist after his Beamer collided with a Range Rover and a Mercedes Benz in the driveway of his family’s home.

#34 – Ian Hummer, Forward 6’7, Sophomore
(13.9 ppg, 2 apg, 6.7 rpg, 3.778 GPA)

Ian Hummer has scored in double figures in 25 of Princeton’s 31 games this season.  His father and uncle are both Princeton basketball alumni, disproving the theory that Princeton graduates lack the social skills to reproduce.

#24 – Will Barrett, Forward 6’10, Sophomore
(2 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 4.0 GPA)

Will Barrett only averages two points per game for Princeton but he is a prolific scorer on standardized tests. Barrett scored a 1600 on his SAT, a 36 on the ACT, and a 100% on his PSAFRT (Princeton Students Are Filthy Rich Test). When he’s not playing basketball, Barrett pursues independent and collaborative research into machine learning and computer vision techniques for scientific discovery from Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) data.

Prediction

Kentucky 76, Princeton 61

Go Cats.

    Lets hope ole Will Barrett isn’t hired by UK after the game. Take the starters out with 1:30 to play if we are up 15.

    Holy crap, was there any chance that Patrick Saunders was not going to go to Princeton. Looks like they made him in some sort of Princeton mold factory. Think he will wear his sweater around his shoulders during the game?

    Patrick Saunders plagiarized Melissa K. Carroll’s resume….or Drew got lazy with his google searches.

    I love Charles Barkley sometimes. He’s repeatedly spouting the Big East is overrated AND they showed his bracket briefly and it shows UK in the final four!

    9. He has the Cats in the final 4 but Kansas winning it all… I have the Cats winning it all against those filthy Cards.

    Seems there is only (1) black player on Princeton?

    Barkley is killing it already.

    IF there were no Doug Davis we’d have Texas Western -vs-Kentucky II “the reversal”…

    Anyone know where you can watch the games online?

    I saw in the team picture that they have 4 black players, but apparently 3 of them are worse than the white players. Consider me even less scared of Princeton than I already wasn’t.

    Is Davis Miller’s long lost twin?

    It also appears that the Princeton players don’t really expect to win. This was sent to me by a friend, it appears to be Ian Hummer’s actual facebook page. His statuses are: “game vs. kentucky…what?” and “I challenge Kentucky to a dance-off”

    “54.) Everyone should download the March Madness On Demand iPhone app. It’s free. And it’s awesome.”

    This thing works like a charm!!!

    Does anyone think that Clemson might match up a little better with Kentucky than this year’s WV team?
