    HANOVER, N.H. -- Pawel Buczak scored 14 points and Dan Mavraides 13 to lead Princeton as the Tigers beat Dartmouth 59-54 Friday night.

    Douglas Davis and Patrick Saunders added 11 points each for Princeton (6-8, 1-0 Ivy League). Alex Barnett scored 24 points for Dartmouth (3-14, 1-2), and also had nine rebounds.

    After Jaban Trotter drilled a pair of jumpers early in the second half to put Dartmouth ahead 31-29, Princeton rattled off nine straight points, highlighted by Mavraides' 3-pointer, and the Tigers led the rest of the way.

    Dartmouth got within two points, and it was 51-48 with 4:04 to play. But three Dartmouth turnovers and a missed free throw allowed Princeton to score eight straight points. Dartmouth scored the last six points in the final 30 seconds.

    The Big Green held a 19-12 lead at one point, but Princeton erased it with a 9-1 run, and led 27-25 at halftime.
