    PRINCETON, N.J. -- Zach Finley scored 16 points and Princeton rallied to defeat Manhattan 61-54 on Wednesday night.

    The Tigers (2-0) fell behind 12-2 and made only one field goal in the first 6:14. Princeton tied the game at 20 on a Dan Mavraides 3-pointer, then took the lead on another 3 by Pawel Buczak.

    The Jaspers (1-1) took a 34-31 lead into halftime and led 50-43 with 8:18 left on a layup by Darryl Crawford. The Tigers regained the lead at 53-52 on another Mavraides 3-pointer with 3:26 left and made all eight of their free throws down the stretch to hold on for the win.

    Princeton outscored Mahnattan 30-20 in the second half despite shooting only 28.6 percent from the field (6-for-21). The Tigers made up for it by making 16 of 20 free throws.
