67.6: Princeton made 25 of its 37 two-point field goal tries against the Bears. T.J. Bray was 8 of 11 from inside the arc while going 2 of 3 from distance.

 


T.J. Bray's 3-pointer with 6:22 to go gave Princeton a nine-point lead at 59-50, capping the Tigers' 10-0 run to take the lead for good.

  

   

• Princeton outrebounded Brown 20-11 in the second half after being tied in that stat at the break.

• Freshman Steven Cook (above left) scored 10 points one game after scoring 13 against Cornell for the first double-figure game of his career.

• T.J. Bray now has 847 career points as he makes a late push to join the Princeton 1,000-point club. Over the final eight regular-season games, Bray would need to average 19.1 points per game to reach the number, slightly higher than his current season average of 18.2 ppg.

• The top two scorers in the Ivy League matched up Friday night, and T.J. Bray surpassed Brown's Sean McGonagill. The Bear senior entered the game with an average of 18.1 ppg this season and ended with 18.0, but Bray jumped from 17.7 to 18.2 to take the league lead.

• Freshman Pete Miller (above right) had a good night for the Tigers, recording a season/career-high four blocks and leading Princeton with seven rebounds, also a career best. It was the second time this season, and the second time in as many games, that Miller led or co-led Princeton on the glass.

• Princeton shot just 3 of 17 from distance, its lowest percentage of the season (.176). Princeton also won the last time it shot as low a percentage from beyond the arc, going 1 of 10 in last season's home victory over Harvard.

• Princeton's nine-rebound advantage was its largest against a Division I opponent since outboarding Fairleigh Dickinson by 15 on Dec. 7.

• Princeton's .519 shooting clip overall on the night was its best since hitting 54.3 percent of its tries against Portland on Dec. 21.


Princeton will visit Yale Saturday in New Haven. The Bulldogs kept pace with co-leader Harvard Friday night with a win over Penn.
