PRINCETON, N.J. -- Ivy League men's basketball jumps into the New Year with the first games of the "14-Game Tournament" highlighting the Week 10 action.

The first conference contests take place Saturday as Dartmouth welcomes Harvard to Leede Arena and Princeton hosts its arch-nemesis Penn in a game to be televised by the NBC Sports Network. Earlier that day, Brown, Cornell and Yale take on Division III opponents as their final tune-ups before opening Ivy play.

A quartet of games on Tuesday are the only other games of the week with Brown, Dartmouth and Penn taking to the hardwoods at home, while Columbia looks to make it four-straight wins in its trip to Holy Cross.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Princeton senior forward Ian Hummer (Vienna, Va.) had a monster game in the Tigers' 74-64 road win at Elon, tying a career high with 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting. Hummer led the team in scoring for the seventh time in 13 games. He had 16 points at halftime as Princeton extended its lead to as many as 16 points in the first 20 minutes. Hummer even hit his second three-pointer of the season in the game and added six rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block.
