Princeton – South Point Holiday Classic
Friday, December 20th. Las Vegas, Nevada.
Last Season: 17-11 (10-4 Ivy).
Pacific will spend the latter end of its non-conference schedule in Sin City for the South Point Holiday Classic. The Princeton Tigers are Pacific’s first matchup, and should provide a decent challenge. However, Princeton is trying to shake off a disappointing end to last season. With three games left in the 2012-2013 regular season, Princeton was tied with Harvard for the conference lead. The Tigers then dropped two of their last three games to Brown and Yale, and Harvard captured the Ivy League title. As a result, the Crimson received an NCAA tournament berth and the Tigers were left with nothing. Princeton will rely on Denton Koon this season as a primary scorer; he averaged 10.5 points per game as a sophomore.
