Penn 70, Princeton 62, OT
PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Tim Begley scored 20 points and Penn pulled off an amazing rally from an 18-point deficit with 7:35 left in regulation and defeated Princeton 70-62 in overtime Tuesday night.
Eric Osmundson had 13 points for Penn (12-7, 5-0 Ivy), which won its eighth straight and remained the only unbeaten team in the Ivy League.
Judson Wallace, who fouled out with 1:03 left in regulation, had 21 points and Will Venable 12 for the Tigers (10-9, 1-4), off to their worst start in league play since the 1978-79 season.
Trailing 53-35, the Quakers used an all-court press to cause numerous turnovers in outscoring Prineceton 21-3. The rally was sparked by Osmundson, who at one point scored seven points in 37 seconds, and his two free throws with 31 seconds to go sent the game into overtime.
A steal and layup by Ibby Jaaber gave Penn a 63-60 edge with 2:06 to go, and after Venable hit a driving layup, Begley banked in a 3-pointer and Osmundson hit two free throws to seal the comeback victory.
This is the 103rd consecutive year the teams have met, with Penn holding a 115-96 edge in the series.
