Princeton never trailed in winning its school-record tying 11th straight game against Division I teams. The 1997-98 team was the last to do so.
Princeton held Marist (3-12) to just 8-of-30 shooting in the first half (26.7 percent), including 0 for 10 from 3-point range to build a 37-20 lead at halftime.
The Red Foxes shot better in the second half, making 40.6 percent from the field (13 of 32) and outscored the Tigers 37-31. It wasn’t enough, however, as Princeton went 14 of 17 from the free-throw line in the second half (82.4 percent).
Marist was led by Sam Prescott with 12 points off the bench.
