Princeton’s 33-game Ivy win streak ends at Harvard

Princeton saw its 33-game Ivy League winning streak end with a

58-55 loss at Harvard on Friday night.

The Tigers (18-6, 9-1 Ivy) last loss in the conference was in

2011 to the Crimson as well. It was the fourth longest active

conference winning streak, trailing Baylor, Delaware and Florida

Gulf Coast.

Niveen Rasheed led Princeton with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

The Tigers, who lead Penn by one game in the Ivy standings, play

Dartmouth on Saturday night. Princeton, which has won the last

three conference titles, also had its 11-game overall winning

streak end. The Ivy League has no postseason tournament so the

regular season champion gets the automatic bid to the NCAA

tournament.

Kristen Helmstetter scored 18 points to lead Harvard (16-8,

7-3).
