    PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) -- Ted Detmer came off the bench to score 15 points -- including the go-ahead score in overtime -- as Lafayette beat Princeton 76-71 on Wednesday night.

    Bilal Abdullah added 14 points and Andrew Brown had 11 for the Leopards (9-6). Kyle Koncz scored 15 points for the Tigers (2-12), while Zach Finley added 12 points and eight rebounds and Lincoln Gunn finished with 10 points and five boards.

    After Koncz hit a 3-pointer with two seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 64-64, the teams traded baskets early on in overtime before Detmer made a layup with 2:58 left to put the Leopards up 69-68.

    They then sealed the win by going 7-for-9 from the free throw line.

    Princeton appeared to be in command early on, jumping out to a 43-26 lead at the break. Lafayette, though, opened the second half with an 11-0 run and eventually took a 60-59 lead on Abdullah's two free throws with 2:32 left.

    The teams then traded baskets before Michael Gruner's two free throws gave Lafayette a 64-61 lead with 24 seconds left. Koncz then missed a 3-point try with eight seconds left, but got a second chance when Gunn got the rebound.
