Temple 60, Princeton 47

PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) -- Princeton did a decent job keeping All-America candidate Mardy Collins in check, holding him to 11 points, but the Temple star's supporting cast proved more than the Tigers could handle Tuesday night in a 60-47 Temple win.

Antywane Robinson (14), Dustin Salisbery (13) and Mark Tyndale (12) all scored in double figures for the Owls, helping them improve to 4-2.

Princeton (1-4) never recovered once Scott Greenman was sidelined by a back injury just seven minutes into the contest. The senior point guard had hurt himself earlier in the day while getting out of his car, then felt pain while attempting to play.

Three-pointers by Princeton's Noah Savage and Geoff Kestler within the first three minutes gave the Tigers an early 6-0 lead, but Temple then went on a 25-6 run to take a commanding lead.

Savage led all scorers with a career-high 21 points, including 11 during a 15-4 second-half run that got the hosts within 54-47 at the 2:32 mark.

The loss was Princeton's fourth straight at Jadwin Gym, where the Tigers had never dropped more than three in a row. They are 0-3 there this season and dropped their finale last season to Ivy League rival Penn.
