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.
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.
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.
