Princeton 71 Northeastern 62.

Postgame audio - Coach Mitch Henderson, T.J. Bray & Patrick Saunders:

Box Score : HD Box Score

Princeton opened their first trip to Matthews Arena listless and out of sorts. The final 20 minutes however, were anything but.

Trailing Northeastern 34-30 midway through after falling behind by as many as nine in the early-going, the Tigers opened the back frame on a 15-2 run and made their free throws down the stretch to earn their fifth win in six tries and even their overall record.

Ian Hummer had his nearly-taken-for granted-at-this-point 20 point performance but it was the complementary support of Patrick Saunders, T.J. Bray and Mack Darrow that led to this victory.

Fellow future Tiger Mike Washington, Jr. went for 21 in Oak Harbor's loss to Shorewood.

If you spent any time around the Princeton program in the mid-2000s, one constant was Scott Greenman's kid brother Mikey dribbling a basketball everywhere he went. Now a sophomore in high school, the younger Greenman is the centerpiece of a story on the psychological pressure young athletes face.

Georgetown looks to continue an early season roll today versus American.

Going the Verizon Center? Stick around after the game to watch Howie Levy's Mercer County Community College Vikings against Frederick (Md.) on the same floor.

Central Connecticut State visits Northwestern.

Denver hosts Boise State.

It will be interesting to see how Richmond performs at Bucknell.

Princeton/Rider highlights.

WZBN provides alternate angles to The Comcast Network's broadcast but inexplicably doesn't include the game's final play?

Was asked earlier today: When was the last time Princeton came from 16 down to win? Some casual research finds plenty of -10 to -12 comebacks in recent seasons but nothing of that margin.

T.J. Bray is the focus of the Princeton Packet's piece on the Rider win. I'm agreeing more and more with Bob Nuse's Kyle Wente comparison after every game.

There's a great shot of Mack Darrow's game winner mid-flight here.

Richmond (6-4) fell short versus Iona, 88-79.

Shaking off a slow start, Denver (7-2) won by five at Northern Colorado.

Oregon State hosts Howard.

Playing three games in four days after 11 days off, Northwestern hosts Texas Southern. Wildcats head coach Bill Carmody (.mp3) recently visited with WGN.

Thinking a bit about Princeton and buzzer beaters as I dozed off last night, I could come up with four in the past decade: Darrow's shot, of course Doug Davis in the Ivy playoff less than a year ago, Ed Persia's 80' hurl at Monmouth and Kyle Wente's off-balance trey at Harvard. What are some other times the Tigers won or lost a game on a basket with no time on the clock?

Did one occur between Wente and Tim Legler's three at the horn for La Salle in 1987? If it did I'm drawing a blank.

Filming a TV does not equal the most ideal quality, but you get the picture.

Princeton 72 Rider 71 (OT).

Postgame audio - Coach Mitch Henderson, Mack Darrow, Ian Hummer & T.J. Bray:

Box Score : HD Box Score

It was nine years between meetings for Princeton and Rider. It was even longer between buzzer beaters for the Tigers’ Mack Darrow.

Darrow fired in a wide open three point shot from the right wing off a Douglas Davis hesitation drive as the horn sounded in overtime to give Princeton a one point win in Lawrenceville. It was Darrow’s only field goal of the game.

“I hit [a shot like that] in second grade Boys and Girls Club from the corner,” the coy Darrow said. “Since then? No.”

After trailing by as many as 16 in the first half, the Tigers closed the opening frame on a 13-2 run but were unable to overtake the Broncs until a T.J. Bray layup with 2:24 left in regulation.

Princeton built a four point lead in the final :30 before Brandon Penn hit a three point shot off a curl and added a single free throw after Davis’ backcourt turnover and foul with the shot clock off.

Daniel Stewart missed a pair of free throws with just over eight seconds left that could have in turn iced the game for Rider.

“Mack bailed us out,” said Tiger head coach Mitch Henderson. “I thought we were in pretty good shape at the end of regulation.”

“It was a crazy game,” he added. “We were very fortunate tonight.”
