Princeton women are back after 3-week exam break

DOUG FEINBERG AP Basketball Writer Published:

While most coaches across the country have been spending the past three weeks prepping for conference games, Princeton women's basketball coach Courtney Banghart has had to find other ways to occupy her time.

That's because her Tigers have been on a hiatus since Jan. 15 for exams. They are one of the few schools to have their tests after Christmas break and the Ivy League has a policy that no one can play athletic contests during the exam period.

So for the past five years in the middle of January, Banghart has had to figure out ways to keep her team sharp during the extended break.

The Tigers have been using the time off to work on the little things to improve.
