PRINCETON, N.J. HARVARD 75, CORNELL 69 — PRINCETON, N.J. -- Princeton ran off a 26-2 spurt during a 15-minute, 33-second span when it held Yale without a field goal last night and the Tigers defeated the Bulldogs, 55-27, in the Ivy League opener for both schools.
The 27 points were the fewest by Yale since it dropped a 56-38 decision to Princeton in the 1956-57 season. The team's media guide does not carry its game-by-game results prior to that season. No school officials were available to say when the Bulldogs had fewer points in a game.
Princeton (9-2) held Yale (5-6) without a field goal from 7:02 left in the first half until David Brown hit a 3-pointer with 11:29 to play. That made the score 44-19.
