Opening Tip:

Today's game is the 65th all-time meeting, with Princeton leading the series 46-18

Lafayette dropped to 1-4 after an 83-74 loss at Maryland on Tuesday night

Seth Hinrichs (20), Joey Ptasinski (14), Tony Johnson (13) and Levi Giese (12) each scored in double-figures against Maryland

The Leopards had turned the ball over more times than their opponent in each of their first four games, before only turning it over seven times against Maryland

Sophomore forward Dan Trist (23.5 ppg) has missed Lafayette's last three games after scoring a career-high 30 points against LIU-Brooklyn (11/12)

Tony Johnson is shooting 63 percent from the field in Lafayette's first five games (24-of-38)

Lafayette continues to shoot the ball well from the line, knocking down 50-of-64 attempts (78.1 percent)

The all-time winningest coach in Lafayette and Patriot League history and longest-tenured coach in the conference, Fran O'Hanlon (Villanova, '70) is in his 18th season as the Leopards' head coach. O'Hanlon coached his 500th career game against St. Francis (N.Y.) to open the season

Lafayette was picked to finish fourth in the Patriot League's Preseason Poll behind Lehigh, Bucknell and American. Holy Cross was also chosen to finish fourth, while Army, Colgate and Navy rounded out the list

Lafayette's two seniors, Tony Johnson and Levi Giese, are team captains in 2012-13
