Box Score

Blake Dietrick scored a career-high 19 points to lead the Princeton women's basketball team past Harvard, 67-51, Saturday night at Jadwin Gym. The win marked the Tigers' 31st consecutive league victory and 22nd straight by double figures.

For the second time in as many games, Princeton saw itself trailing. Harvard opened with a 5-0 run and held a seven-point lead, 15-8 at 14:58, before the Tigers' offensive attack picked up.

A Niveen Rasheed fast break ignited an 11-2 run to lift Princeton to its first lead of the evening, 20-19 at 10:41. During that span Dietrick dropped a pair of treys and freshman Michelle Miller added one of her own to decisively swing the momentum to the Tigers' side for the remainder of the contest.

By halftime Dietrick had three triples and scored 11 points to help put Princeton up 39-31.

She finished going 7-for-12 from the field and recording a career-best five three-pointers over 30 minutes off the bench.

Harvard managed a 7-2 run to come as close as seven, 47-40 with 12:13 left in regulation, but Princeton countered with 11 uncontested points to reestablish its double figure differential for good.

Rasheed had her third consecutive double-double and ninth overall, tallying 17 points and a team-best 10 boards. Nearly reaching the double figure scoring mark was Kristen Helmstetter, who had nine points and grabbed eight rebounds.

Princeton (16-5, 7-0 Ivy) has now faced all conference opponents once, averaging a +32.6 margin of victory. The Tigers remain at home next weekend, hosting Columbia on Friday, Feb. 22 and Cornell the next evening.
