PRINCETON, N.J. -- Sebastian Much sank two free throws to put Princeton up 68-65 with 6.5 seconds left in overtime and, when Penn missed twice as the time ran out, the Tigers captured the Ivy League opener on Saturday.
Thanks to the quirks of scheduling, the teams meet again at the Palestra next Saturday.
Penn trailed by eight in the final five minutes of regulation before a Devon Goodman 3-pointer capped an 11-2 run and they lead at 62-61 inside the final minute. Much made the second of a two-shot foul to tie with 39 seconds left and Princeton missed a last-second jumper, leading to overtime.
It was injury-depleted Penn's second-straight overtime loss, having fallen 76-74 to Monmouth on Monday.
