PRINCETON, N.J. -- Princeton University will open its 2011 men's season on national television as ESPNU will broadcast live the Tigers' game versus Santa Clara University on Friday, September 9 from DeNunzio Pool.
It will mark the second straight season opener between the schools nationally televised on the network and the third straight Princeton men's season opener to appear on live television.
Prior to game, Princeton will warm up for the event with an exhibition game against the National Team from Trinidad & Tobago on the afternoon of September 9 before meeting Santa Clara at 6:00 p.m.
Princeton is coming off another standout season as the 2010 Tigers won their first Southern Championship since the 2004 season, but fell short in the Eastern Championship tournament at Bucknell University despite a 19-8 overall record. Princeton will enter the 2011 season with hopes of repeating as Southern champions and regaining the Eastern Championship and the CWPA's spot in the 2011 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Championship field.
