Morgan scores 31, Cornell beats Princeton 107-101 in 3OT
ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) — Matt Morgan scored nine of his 31 points in triple-overtime and Cornell snapped a six-game losing skid against Princeton with a 107-101 victory on Friday night.
It was the first time in the 118-year history of the series where both teams scored more than 100 points each.
Morgan converted a 3-point play, made all six of his free throws and had two defensive rebounds as the Big Red outscored Princeton 19-13 in the third overtime. Morgan was 8-of-17 shooting with four 3-pointers, and had 10 rebounds and seven assists. Stone Gettings added 26 points for Cornell (10-12, 4-5), which made 29 of 32 from the free-throw line.
Devin Cannady scored a career-high 32 points and Myles Stephens added 25 to lead Princeton (11-13, 3-6 Ivy League), which has lost five straight.
Cornell was down 20 points with 12 minutes left, but Morgan’s jumper with 10 seconds to go gave the Big Red a one-point lead. Princeton’s Amir Bell made the second of two free-throw attempts with a second left in regulation to send it to overtime tied at 76.
