in an 82-58 rout over Yale on Friday night.

Patrick Saunders finished with 14 points, Douglas Davis had 12

Princeton, which shot 50.8 percent from the floor (31-for-61),

had its lead cut to 28-24 with 5:27 left in the first half on a

dunk by Paul Nelson. But the Tigers answered with a 14-0 run over

the next 5 minutes, capped by Pawel Buczak’s 3-pointer to take a

42-24 lead.

Mavraides, who went 8-for-14 from the floor and made four

3-pointers, knocked down a jumper with 14:30 to play to give

Princeton a 58-33 advantage – its largest of the game.

Greg Mangano was the only Yale (10-16, 4-5) player to score in

double figures with 11 points.
