After defeating Illinois State last weekend, Marquette advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament. Due to regional 1 seed BYU also advancing, Marquette heads out to Provo for their next match. They will face off with the Princeton Tigers today at 4pm Central time. There's no streaming video or television for this match, but you can keep track of live stats here or listen to WMUR's David Tukesbrey call the action on their streaming audio here.
Princeton is no stranger to winning away from home. The Tigers have won 12 matches in a row, including seven straight on the road. That 12 match streak includes Princeton's undefeated run through the Ivy League and their first round victory over West Virginia in Morgantown in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
With Princeton going undefeated in the Ivy League, it's unsurprising to find out that the Ivy Player of the Year is a Tiger. Jen Hoy won that award this year after leading the Ivy League in goals (18) and points (40). Hoy was joined on the All-Ivy First Team by four teammates: defender Alison Nabatoff, midfielders Gabriella Guzman and Rachel Sheehy, and forward Lauren Lazo. Goalkeeper Claire Pinciaro was named to the All-Ivy League Second Team after posting a goals-against average of 1.10 with a save percentage of .791.
The winner of the Marquette-Princeton match will advance to face the winner of Auburn-BYU on Saturday.
