Postgame audio - Coach Sydney Johnson, Kareem Maddox & Douglas Davis:

Make it seven straight heading into a brief Christmas break for the Princeton Tigers.

A balanced scoring attack, led by Kareem Maddox and Patrick Saunders in the first 20 minutes - then Dan Mavraides, Ian Hummer and Douglas Davis in the vesper, allowed the visiting Tigers to slowly pull away from the homestanding Towson Tigers midway through the second frame.

"It feels good to go into the holidays with a win," said Davis after his team's ninth success of the campaign and the 50th victory of Sydney Johnson's head coaching career. "It feels good anytime you get a win on the road."

Leading 46-44, Princeton scored 12 of the game's next 16 points, capped off by two Mavraides free throws.

Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach Bill Carmody, Michael Thompson & Drew Crawford:

Northwestern's 1-3-1 defense befuddled St. Francis into 21 turnovers and after a slow start the Terriers could not contain the Wildcat's explosive troika of Drew Crawford, John Shurna and Michael "Juice" Thompson.

Trailing 15-13, ailing from what head coach Bill Carmody called "Garden jitters," the Wildcats settled into their funky zone, with JerShon Cobb at the top of the D and Shurna's long arms cutting off the passing lane to the right corner as he straddled the arc.
