PRINCETON, N.J. (AP)—Andre Logan scored 15 points and Princeton shot a season-best 70.3 percent from the field in a 66-44 win over Harvard Friday night.

Will Venable and Scott Greenman added 13 apiece for Princeton (14-12, 5-7 Ivy League). Matt Stehle had 14 points and nine rebounds for Harvard (12-14, 7-6).

Princeton clinched an overall .500 record and kept alive its hopes for a 52nd consecutive season with at least a .500 record in conference play.

The Tigers pulled away with a 16-0 run late in the first half. With the score 13-12, Logan hit the first of two straight 3-pointers to provide the half’s seventh lead change. Greenman then assisted on two baskets and hit two 3-pointers to give Princeton a 28-13 lead that would only be trimmed to 28-14 by halftime.

Harvard’s 14 points was the lowest output by a Division I team in one half against Princeton this year.

The Tigers built on their advantage in the second half as a 3-pointer by Noah Savage, a jumper from Greenman and a three-point play by Judson Wallace (10 points) opened a 36-16 lead. Harvard got no closer than 15 the rest of the way.
