Princeton beats Dartmouth 68-63, gains Ivy lead
PRINCETON 68, DARTMOUTH 63
PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) -- Will Barrett scored a career-high 24
points, including five 3-pointers in the second half, as
Princeton defeated Dartmouth 68-63 Saturday night to take over
the Ivy League lead.
The Tigers (16-9, 9-2) had tightened the race for the league's
NCAA tournament berth Friday night with a 58-53 victory over
Harvard, whose 75-72 loss to Penn on Saturday night dropped the
Crimson to 9-3 in the league.
The Tigers, however, will go on the road for their final three
Ivy contests, while Harvard will play its last two at home. If
they finish tied, they would meet in a playoff for the second
time in three seasons.
Barrett hit two 3-pointers during an 11-2 second-half run that
gave the Tigers a 45-33 lead with 9:16 left.
T.J. Bray added 21 points for Princeton.
Tyler Melville had 23 points for Dartmouth (7-19, 3-9), and
Gabas Maldunas had 17 points and 12 rebounds.
