Wesley is no stranger to playing up to Division I competition. It is the fifth time in the four-year tenure of head coach Dean Burrows and the second time in the 2018-19 season that Wesley will play a Division I opponent. Wesley opened the 2018-19 slate against the Towson Tigers. Last season, Wesley made the trip north to take on the University of Delaware Blue Hens. In the 2015-16 season, the Wolverines went to North Carolina to take on the Elon Phoenix and played an early season scrimmage against the Monmouth Hawks.
The top scoring offense in the Atlantic East, Wesley has been paced by the guard duo of junior Brian Cameron and senior Evan Anderson. Cameron leads the Atlantic East and sits eighth in Division III in scoring with 25.1 points per game and fifth in the conference in rebounding with a 6.8 rebounds per game average. Anderson leads the conference in three-point field goal percentage, hitting 43 percent of his three-point attempts, and ranks third in the league in scoring, tallying 19.0 points per contest.
Princeton is 9-5 overall and a perfect 2-0 in the Ivy League, recently notching a season sweep in a home-and-home series over Penn on Jan. 5 and Jan. 12. Princeton played two ranked opponents so far in 2018-19, falling to the then second-ranked Duke, 101-50 on Dec. 18 and securing a 67-66 upset win on the road over 17th-ranked Arizona State on Dec. 29.
Princeton won't have their leading scorer Devin Cannady, who has been suspended from the team due to a violation of team rules. The Tigers will lean on senior guard Myles Stephens, junior center Richmond Aririguzoh and freshman guard Jaelin Llewellyn who all average double figures to spark the offense.
