|19: Princeton's largest lead came just inside of two minutes to go on a Ben Hazel bucket. The Big Green outscored Princeton 10-1 the rest of the way with mostly reserves on the floor.
|Hans Brase had a bucket with a little more than a minute gone in the second half that capped a 14-0 Princeton run and put Princeton ahead 36-19. The run was key to Princeton pulling away from the Big Green and cementing the win.
