That's all well and good, but without the TO differential, that game is basically a toss up. If you believe that's replicable (which last year's Princeton team did, indeed, replicate for the entire season and especially in Ivy play), then it's a good sign. If you believe it's not (like I do), then it's noise, and doesn't make last night's result look as good as it does on the surface in terms of what to expect moving forward.

Although unusual, I actually agree with your comments. Monmouth made a number of unforced errors last night that definitely contributed to the Tigers victory. It would be foolish to think that Tiger's opponents would turn over the ball over like Monmouth did last night for the balance of the season. If Princeton does not consistently improve their defense, there will be plenty of additional losses, possibly or probably including last night.

As to their offense, their assists went up last evening which is a good sign for at least one night and they had more open shots as reflected by the number of uncontested 3 point shots. Lack of effective ball movement by Princeton and the unwillingness to take open shots have been contributing factors to a 44% shooting percentage but they have plenty of company, i.e. Harvard (40%) and others.

Who knows what will be the outcome of the IL season -- maybe your crystal ball knows.
