PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) -- Kyle Koncz scored 15 points and hit two
clutch free throws in overtime as Princeton defeated Columbia 68-64
in the Ivy League opener for both teams Friday night.
The Tigers (3-10, 1-0) snapped a six-game losing streak, their
longest since 1979-80. They defeated Columbia (7-7, 0-1) for the
ninth straight time.
Columbia had a chance to tie the score with 10.8 seconds left in
overtime, inbounding from the Princeton baseline after a missed
foul shot. Dalen Cuff was unable to inbound and called timeout, but
the Lions had none left. Scott Greenman made the two technical
fouls to make it 66-62. After John Baumann's bucket cut the deficit
to two, Koncz made two more foul shots to give Princeton a
four-point edge with 8.2 left, and the Lions could not score again.
Princeton won despite not making a field goal in the final 10:52
of regulation, and making just one in overtime. The Tigers' final
points of regulation came on 14-of-16 foul shooting, and they made
10-of-13 in OT.
