Let’s remember who recruited Henderson. We repeat a story for relative newbies here.

In early 1975, Princeton was on the road at UVA, a veteran team featuring juniors Armond Hill and Barnes Hauptfuehrer. One assistant was at home coaching the frosh, the other recruiting, so Pete Carril was the only coach on the trip. With the Tigers up two, a couple minutes into the second half the touchy refs gave Pete his second T, and he was sent to the locker room. On his way, he turned to junior Pete Malloy and told him the team was his. (Intriguingly, he was NOT a captain, they were Hill and Mickey Steurer.) The Tigers won 55-50.

On Carril’s retirement in 1996, SI’s Alex Wolff retold the story and called it Carril’s all-time favorite.

There is another story from Tiger hoops lore that reinforces the “let them play” narrative.

At a Holiday Festival Tournament game in Madison Square Garden during their epic 26-1 season in 1997-98, Bill Carmody called timeout after the team was struggling against Niagara’s zone: ''The kids were asking me what to do,'' Carmody said. ''I told them: 'You are juniors and seniors. Figure it out.’''

The team’s PG? Mitch Henderson

That article also recalled one of the barely believable stats from that team — they had assists on 70% of their made baskets for the SEASON. Including, and focused around Goodrich as one of the great point centers, of course.

I do believe Niagara was the only complete game they hit 100% though.
