#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.
