Princeton let an 18-point second-half lead slip away and Northeastern rallied to defeat the Tiger men's basketball team 67-66 Tuesday night at Jadwin Gym.

Ian Hummer tied a career high with 25 points, including 21 before the game was 13 minutes old while scoring all but nine of the team's first 30 points.

The second half, however, was not so kind. Princeton led Northeastern 56-38 with 13 minutes to go, and the Huskies quietly chipped away. A 12-2 Northeastern run over less than four minutes made it an eight-point Princeton lead.

Princeton's advantage was seven points with three minutes to go, but the Huskies shut out the Tigers from there. Northeastern closed the game on an 8-0 run, capping the game with a layup from Reggie Spencer off a dish in the paint from Zach Stahl to take its only lead of the game at 67-66 with 2.5 seconds left to work with for Princeton.

The Tigers had to go the length of the court in that time, but all T.J. Bray could attempt was a half-court desperation try.

Princeton, which opened its season Saturday with a 57-53 win at Buffalo, fell to 1-1 while Northeastern used last-second heroics once again to move to 2-0 after winning its opener 65-64 over Boston University.

Northeastern's Quincy Ford led all scorers with 27 points, 18 of which came in the second half.

The Tigers will have only a couple days to regroup, as Rutgers (1-1) will invade Jadwin Gym for a 7 p.m. tip Friday night.

Postgame notes:

• Hummer's 25 points lifted him into a 12th-place tie on the all-time scoring list with 1,207 career points, even with Steve Goodrich '98.

• It was the third time in his career that Hummer scored 25 points, matching his career best set at Columbia on Feb. 11, 2011, and at Florida State in triple OT on Dec. 30, 2011.

• Northeastern shot 57 percent in each half and finished at 57.5 percent for the game.

• Princeton was much hotter from the field in the first half, going from 58.6 percent before the break to 34.6 percent after.

• Princeton lost despite winning the battle of the boards 26-23. Even with 15 offensive rebounds for Northeastern, the Huskies had only two second-chance points.

• Princeton had defeated Northeastern in each of the last two seasons. Two years ago, Princeton won in a Central Florida-hosted event in Orlando. Last season, Princeton won in Boston.

• Clay Wilson, who had five points all last season on 1-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc, has already put in seven 3-pointers in two games off the bench this season. He was 4 of 10 from the field tonight.
