Rutgers 58 Princeton 52.

Box Score : HD Box Score

Despite being out-worked on the glass and frequently out-efforted for 50/50 balls, Princeton still stood within a four point shadow of Rutgers in the final six minutes of a true grind-it-out basketball game at Jadwin Gym.

On three straight possessions the Tiger defense rose to the occasion and recorded stops but the offense was unable to capitalize on the corresponding trio of trips down the floor.

“Our defense down the stretch, I was very proud of the guys and I thought we were playing hard but we just couldn’t buy a hoop,” said head coach Mitch Henderson. “We missed a couple easy shots that would have really helped.”

Just over two minutes of scoreless activity came to the close on a pair of free throws by the Scarlet Knights' Austin Johnson and in a fitting verdict-sealer Johnson won away an offensive rebound inside of a wild three point miss by Jerome Seagears and started a three point play with a layup follow.

It was shocking how dominant Rutgers stood on the glass, out-rebounding Princeton by a palindromic 42-24 margin while grabbing 11 second chances.

“It is concerning, because that’s what we want to hang our hat on this year,” Henderson acknowledged. “It is disappointing.”

Eli Carter led the way with 22 points and was the catalyst off the bench for the victors, canning four straight first half three pointers once he entered to see his squad down 10-2 early. Myles Mack added 16, also on 6-9 shooting.

For Princeton Will Barrett had 13 and Ian Hummer 10 along with six assists, four rebounds and zero turnovers. Hummer scored one point in the second half against the Rutgers zone but the Tigers had no outside support to aid Hummer's cause.

While T.J. Bray finally hit from behind the arc he remains 1-19 from deep on the season. Princeton guards combined to shoot 4-20 from the floor as a unit.

Northeastern 67 Princeton 66.

Box Score : HD Box Score

From a designed play for an Ian Hummer dunk off the opening tip onwards, Princeton was in comprehensive control of Tuesday night's home opener against Northeastern, building a lead that would extend to as large as 18 points with 13 minutes remaining in the second half.

What followed was a baffling unraveling. Unable to consistently solve the Huskies' zone defense and standing still when they would have found better opportunities via cutting, the Tigers saw their opponent slowly and surely cut tiny pieces out of their advantage as time ticked down.

Still, the margin stood a bearable three possessions with three minutes left on a free throw by Princeton's Chris Clement.

It would be the Tigers' final point of the night.

A missed bunny layup, a turnover with the shot clock about to expire, a bad foul by Will Barrett leaving his feet and the advantage was but one.

Mack Darrow missed the front end of a one-and-one with 11 seconds to go and on a drive to his left by Zach Stahl that seemed to draw the entire Princeton backline of defense, Reggie Spencer was all alone on the other side of the basket for the game-winner.

A half court fling from T.J. Bray landed well short of its destination and Northeastern had improbably won the game after trailing for the previous 39:58.

"[Northeastern] did everything that they needed to do to come back and win that game and we didn't,” said Princeton head coach Mitch Henderson succinctly.

Hummer was un-defendable in the first half, scoring 21 points on 8-10 shooting. Hummer equaled his career high of 25 on the night but his touches were absent late against the Huskies' 3-2 zone.

Clay Wilson tossed in four three pointers, then went scoreless after intermission.

Quincy Ford had a career best 27 to lead the comeback including 5-6 from three point range and Spencer's 16 included the deciding bucket.

As a team Northeastern shot 57.5% on the night, 23-40 from the field.
