When Princeton men’s basketball needed big shots in pivotal games against Columbia and Yale, Devin Cannady ’19 delivered. The reserve guard scored a combined 43 points in the games against the other two Ivy League title contenders, and the Tigers won both, improving to 8–1 in league play.
Cannady was particularly impressive in the wild closing minutes of Princeton’s win at Columbia Feb. 13. The Tigers trailed throughout the game and had to close a four-point gap with just 17 seconds remaining. Cannady made two three-pointers in the last 11 seconds to force overtime, and he added another five points in an overtime comeback that finally put Princeton on top.
Against Yale at Jadwin Gym Feb. 19, Cannady made three of his four three-point attempts as the Tigers ended the Bulldogs’ 12-game winning streak. Through 23 games, Cannady was averaging 11.7 points per game.
