Box Score | Highlights

Columbia was the first Princeton opponent in more than a year to overcome a Princeton halftime lead, outscoring the Tigers by nine in the second half and holding on for a 53-52 win at Jadwin Gym Friday night.

Princeton led by as many as 13 points in the first half and by eight at halftime. The Tigers were up 10 two minutes into the second half when Columbia went on a 10-0 run to tie it at 37-37 just more than five minutes into the second half. From there, it was never more than a three-point game until Princeton pulled ahead 52-47 on a T.J. Bray bucket with 2:04 to go.

Columbia scored the game's last six points, including a go-ahead 3-pointer by Isaac Cohen that ended up being the game winner.

57.1, 33.3: Princeton's shooting percentage dipped more than 20 points from the first half to the second, while Columbia's went in the opposite direction, going from .333 to .500. It was just the seventh time this season in 18 games that Princeton scored fewer points in the second half (19) than the first (33), and the largest difference in points scored between the two halves this season.

 


Columbia's Isaac Cohen's 3-pointer with less than 30 seconds to go turned out to be the final points of the game and one of just two instances on the night in which Columbia led. The Lions were ahead 42-40 before the midway point of the half.


  

   

• The second half saw five ties and three lead changes after Princeton led the entire first half.

• The first half saw Princeton commit just two turnovers a weekend after having two of their three highest turnover games at Harvard (16) and Dartmouth (17). Princeton turned it over seven times in the second half but finished with nine on the game, one of six single-digit turnover games for the Tigers this season.

• Princeton's struggles from distance continued, as the team shot .286 (6-21) from beyond the arc. During the Tigers' 9-1 start, Princeton was .353 from 3-point range. In the eight games since, Princeton has gone .338.

• The 52 points were a season low for Princeton, which had scored at least 66 points in each of the first 17 games of a season for the first time in program history. Columbia's 53 points were the lowest for a Princeton opponent since Bucknell lost to the Tigers 66-53 on Nov. 30.

• Columbia's 53 points were the lowest total to beat Princeton since Cornell won 50-47 on Feb. 26, 2010 in Ithaca. It was the lowest total to win a game in Jadwin since earlier that season, when Cornell beat Princeton 48-45 on Feb. 13, 2010.

• Columbia's .404 shooting clip from the field was the lowest to beat Princeton since Fordham shot .400 in a win on Dec. 15, 2012, which was also the last game that Princeton lost when it led at halftime.

• Rookie Steven Cook earned his second career start in as many games, playing 28 minutes.

• Senior T.J. Bray moved past the 800-point mark for his career, now at 804.


Princeton will host Cornell Saturday at 6 p.m. in Jadwin Gym. The Big Red came up short in pursuit of their first Ivy League victory tonight at Penn, 90-83.
