Assistant coach Brian Earl summed up Princeton’s cuckoo three overtime win at Florida State with unexpected neatness on WPRB’s postgame show:

“A lot of mistakes, a lot of stupid plays but in the end this is why you play.”

The Tigers’ first three OT game since 1994 had absolutely everything, but in the 55th minute Princeton had Ian Hummer, Douglas Davis and finally a signature victory.

Davis may have struggled on his lean-in attempts to win the game at the end of regulation as well as the second extra frame but his three point shot from the top of the arc off a Hummer feed caught the front rim, hit the glass square and went down to make it 68-65 Tigers.

Playing all 55 minutes (minus one possession), Davis had 25 points including five three point shots.

Hummer also scored 25 on 10-19 shooting, going 5-5 at the free throw line while grabbing 15 rebounds. It was Hummer’s dunk follow of a Davis drive that gave his team a five point lead with less than a minute to go.

While the Seminoles tallied eight points in the final 30 seconds, Princeton went 5-6 at the line and had a superb victory in their final game of 2011, the first team to beat Florida State at home this season.

Eons previous the Tigers built a 27-10 halftime advantage which finally evaporated in the final minute of regulation. Florida State took their first lead of the game at 51-49 during the first of the three bonus frames.

Denton Koon added seven points and 10 boards off the bench.

UNC Greensboro vs. Richmond - 4:00 pm ET

Lafayette vs. Columbia - 7:00 pm ET

Florida State is ready to get back to action. The Tallahassee Democrat previews tonight's game. These two articles may open in front of a paywall. I had mixed results.

Princeton recruit Mike Washington, Jr. scored 13 in a loss for Oak Harbor at the Bellevue Holiday Tournament.

Denver (11-2) matched its best ever Division I start as they opened conference play with a 79-62 win over Troy.

Unable to completely dig out of a 20 point hole, Oregon State (10-3) fell 95-80 at Washington.

Richmond hosts UNC Greensboro today. The Spiders will raise a banner honoring Kevin Anderson before the game.

Around the Ivy League: Harvard (11-1) defeated Boston College for the fourth straight time, 67-46. Brown (5-9) lost 66-49 at St. Francis (NY). Down 19 midway through the second half, Yale (8-3) got as close as two with a minute to go but could not finish the comeback at Wake Forest. Penn (6-7) suffered a similar fate in the same state, dropping at 75-70 decision at Davidson.

With five players in double figures, Richmond (8-6) defeated Liberty, 77-61.

Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach Sydney Johnson:

Stuck on the baseline between Bruiser Flint’s sideline acrobatics (does he kick a foot in the air on every jump shot by the opposition?) and a diminutive man with a bullhorn repeating “defensedefensedefensedefensedefense” for the entirety of each possession by the visiting team, I took in Fairfield’s trip to Drexel tonight.

Princeton surprises Cornell in 2009.

A handful of near-complete Princeton games have been posted on YouTube. The first of which I'm spotlighting is a victory from three seasons ago over Cornell.

The Tigers surprised the Big Red 61-41, ending Cornell's 19 game conference winning streak in the process. The rest of the action can be found after the jump.

My first two reactions upon watching some of this:

-There goes my evening.
-Doug Davis and Jason Briggs were on the same roster? How did I forget that?

Why not vote for Douglas Davis' shot against Harvard as college basketball play of the year?

Princeton's shot selection.

I think this is a really neat holiday present, created by Brian from Hoya Prospectus.

After the jump you can view a shot selection chart through the Siena game for 13 different Princeton players broken down into five separate columns: Dunks, Layups, Two Point Jumpers, Three Point Jumpers and Free Throws.

Some interesting numbers. Can't thank Brian enough for doing this.

Tuesday News:

Lineup changes are likely when Florida State hosts Princeton next week.

This New York Times article on financial aid changes in the Ivy League should be the jumping off point for an interesting discussion.

Richmond (7-6) fell 71-63 at UCLA.
