Pete Carril 1930-2022

In his 29 years as head coach at Princeton, Carril and his teams authored numerous near-upsets in NCAA tournament play -- until the Tigers finally broke through and picked off defending national champion UCLA, 43-41, in the first round of the 1996 NCAA tournament. That was Carril's next-to-last game before retirement.

The previous season, the only time he ever faced UMass, Carril got himself ejected late in the second half after picking up two technical fouls. The Minutemen won the game, 88-67, at Mullins.
