    Princeton 68, Columbia 64 (OT)

    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.

    Baumann led all scorers with 18 points, while K.J. Matsui had 16 for the Lions. Greenman and Edwin Buffmire had 12 apiece for Princeton, and Luke Owings added nine, including some clutch free throws.
