Game 17: Princeton at Dartmouth

(12-5, 0-3)

Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014
Leede Arena • Hanover, N.H.

(9-9, 2-2)

Box Score

Coming off a win over Penn Friday night, Dartmouth kept the momentum going and defeated Princeton 78-69 in overtime Saturday night in New Hampshire.

The Tigers, who entered the weekend ranked No. 1 in the nation in fewest total turnovers, had two of their three highest turnover games on the season over the weekend, matching their season high tonight with 17 giveaways against the Big Green. Princeton couldn't make up for it from beyond the arc, going just 10 of 30.

The defeat came despite Will Barrett's career-high 28 points, bettering his previous best by four. Barrett had an old-fashioned 3-point play to tie it at 68-68 and force overtime, but the Big Green pulled away in the extra period.

Neither team shot well from the field in the extra period, but Dartmouth made the difference at the line. Princeton was 2-7 in the OT to Dartmouth's 2-6, but the Big Green were 11-12 from the stripe while Princeton only got there twice, making both attempts.

17: Princeton matched a season high with 17 turnovers against the Big Green a night after turning it over 16 times at Harvard.


Will Barrett cut to the basket with 18 seconds to go in regulation and forced overtime with the hoop and the foul, making it 63-63. Dartmouth then missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer, and the contest went five more minutes.


• Princeton lost in Hanover for the first time since 2008, ending a five-game winning streak at Leede Arena. It was also the last time Princeton was swept on the Harvard-Dartmouth trip. Dartmouth's last win over Princeton was in 2009 in Jadwin Gym.

• Freshman Steven Cook earned his first career start and fellow freshman Spencer Weisz started for the first time since Dec. 7 against FDU.

• Princeton used the overtime to keep its streak of scoring at least 66 points in every game this season, the first time in program history Princeton has scored at least 66 points in every game this late into the season.

• Will Barrett became the third Tiger in two nights to have a career-high scoring output of greater than 20 points, scoring 28 against the Big Green. He went 6-9 from distance and 9-12 from the field overall. T.J. Bray (26) and Hans Brase (20) had career highs last night at Harvard.

• Tyler Melville, whose father Randy Melville is in the Princeton basketball class of 1981, led Dartmouth with 21 points.

• A night after having their lowest free-throw percentage of the season (.500) at Harvard, the Tigers had their best percentage on the campaign at Dartmouth, going 13 of 15 for an .867 clip.

Princeton will host Columbia Friday night in Jadwin Gym. The Lions are 2-2 in the Ivy and 13-8 overall after a 64-56 loss at Brown tonight.
