Princeton 78, Rutgers 73

This report filed by The Trentonian's Steve Miller:

PRINCETON — For as much as the first half at Jadwin Gymnasium was all about Princeton on Saturday, the second half was all Rutgers.

But the deciding period was overtime, when the Tigers earned a 78-73 win.

Princeton sophomore Ian Hummer got the Tigers going, driving to the basket and laying it in as the shot clock expired to give the Tigers a 69-66 advantage.

It was the second key basket for the 6-foot-7 forward, who tied the game at 65, forcing the extra period. A 3-pointer by senior guard Dan Mavraides extended Princeton’s advantage, sealing the decision in the intrastate rivals’ season openers.

“It feels great, it definitely feels great,” said Mavraides, who led all scorers with a career high 26 points. “I personally never beat Rutgers, coach [Sydney Johnson] has never beat Rutgers, so it definitely means a lot. We play them every year and it’s kind of a backyard battle, so it means a lot.
