It will be interesting to see if Princeton can not get confused by the MTSU "morphing" zone, which plays an aggressive 1-3-1 look until a pass gets to the baseline, when they switch to a 2-3 for the remainder of the possession. It's funky and can lead to turnovers and shot-clock violations if you're not prepared. They sometimes switch to man-to-man in the middle of a possession, too.

Tigers take early 6-0 lead. Defense looks scrappy tonight.

Couple of defensive breakdowns and lead is gone. Tied at 10. MTSU is a tough test.

Tigers are rebounding very well, especially Stephens. Good defense not great but MT plays very good defense. Really challenging game. Great coach - seniors and juniors.

Cannady's shot is off. He needs to start making some 3s -- really important.

Tigers look good for 25 seconds playing 1-3-1 on D then give up a drive through the defense and uncontested layup. Ugghh

Game has gotten ratty on both ends. Good time out by MH. Up 2 with ball and 50 seconds.

Up 5 at half despite poor shooting from 3. Defense looks pretty good, although MTSU missing a lot of shots.

The good sign is that the Tigers intensity on defense and especially rebounding turned around starting with the Monmouth game. MT's King a 22.9 pt scorer was taken out of the game in the 1st half but he may come out with a very different energy level. King may be the best 6'7" player that the Tigers will face. Stephens switched from King to Potts to slow him down after he hit 3 pointers.

Arirguzoh, Young and LeBlanc have surprisingly made contributions. Bell picked up 2 fouls and Young kept him off the floor.

MT coach will come out with adjustments in the 2nd half offensively. Tigers are going to have to hit 3 pointers far greater than 25%.

Going to be a crazy though second half.

Multiple mental breakdowns for the Tigers and the Raiders rip off the first 8 points of the 2nd half. Gotta focus and stay disciplined. This team is too good to mess around with.

Agree/ Tigers must make open 3 pt shots when they get them. Need to keep moving the ball quickly to get open 3s'. Ball movement will give them open looks but does not guarantee that they will make them but it will help.

MT is picking up defensive intensity and going out further from basket to contest. Stephens, Bell and Cannady should try to go to basket. 4 fouls on Bell -- killler.
