Princeton 67 Yale 63.

Box Score : HD Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach Sydney Johnson, Douglas Davis & Ian Hummer:

Princeton did not record a field goal in the final 6:39 of Saturday night's game against Yale, but made two defensive stops in the final 30 seconds to hold off the Bulldogs 67-63.

Austin Morgan, guarded closely by Dan Mavraides with Yale behind one, lost the ball off his foot - kicked forward 10 feet and over the baseline.

Following two ice-in-vein free throws by Mack Darrow, Kareem Maddox swatted a runner in the lane by Porter Braswell into the hands of Mavraides.

Mavraides was fouled with :08.6 showing and his team up three. The senior guard, who struggled through an eight turnover evening, missed his first try and then converted his second after Yale used their final time out.

Princeton sent four defenders back with Mavraides waiting patiently at the line.

Morgan's jumper from behind the arc right before time expired was rebounded by Ian Hummer and Princeton had done just enough to get to 2-0 after their first league weekend.

"We need a little more awareness as to how you get from the 10 minute mark with an 11 point lead to the one minute mark with an 11 point lead," said Princeton head coach Sydney Johnson.

Hummer finished with 12 points - all in the first half. His final rebound was his 11th, giving him three double-doubles on the season.

Douglas Davis led the way with 18 on 7-11 shooting. Maddox tallied 17, all but four coming after intermission.

Reggie Willhite's 13 topped four Elis in double figures.

Georgetown 69 Villanova 66.

Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach John Thompson III, Austin Freeman, Chris Wright & Julian Vaughn:

Trailing 61-53 and time running low, it took 51 seconds for Villanova to cut an eight point Georgetown lead down to one.

Running, jumping, trapping, tripling and tackling - the Wildcats swarmed the entirety of the floor for 94 feet as they attempted to salvage victory in a game they were almost out of with 2:59 left.

A pair of unforgivable long passes by the Hoyas' Jason Clark and Chris Wright into Antonio Pena's hands led swiftly to a Corey Stokes three point jumper from the left arc and two Maalik Wayns free throws as the Hoyas struggled to break the Wildcats' full court pressure.

Through it all, senior Austin Freeman remained unflappable.

Princeton 78 Brown 60.

Box Score : HD Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach Sydney Johnson, Kareem Maddox & Dan Mavraides:

Trailing 21-13 after 10 unfocused minutes in the first game of their final Ivy League campaign, Princeton's seniors did what you hope your veterans will do.

A driven, determined Kareem Maddox took over Jadwin Gym on Friday night - scoring 11 points, grabbing seven rebounds, dishing three assists and grabbing three steals in 15 minutes of first half action as the Tigers exploded on a 24-2 run fueled by their defense.

Fellow senior Dan Mavraides was one of four Princeton players in double figures, hitting three times from deep for 13. Ian Hummer equaled Mavraides and Douglas Davis did one better. Maddox finished with 15 points and a career high 14 boards.

No one on the Tigers played more than 26 minutes as the orange and black opened the second half on an 8-0 run and never lead by less than 14 before expanded recycling time to close the effort.

"They looked like they'd been there. It is hard to fake that," said Princeton head coach Sydney Johnson about Maddox and Mavraides. "They've been in those moments."

Matt Sullivan led Brown with a career best 22.
