    Princeton 76, Pennsylvania 70 (OT)

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Judson Wallace scored 24 points and Andre Logan hit two key free throws in overtime as Princeton defeated Penn 76-70 Tuesday in the final regular-season game for both teams.

    Logan added 19 points and Will Venable had 12 points and five steals for the Ivy League champions (20-7, 13-1), who had already earned a berth in the NCAA tournament.

    Adam Chubb had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Quakers (17-10, 10-4), who are still hoping for an NIT bid.

    Penn had a 54-47 lead with 7:17 left in regulation, but then went cold as Princeton went on a 14-3 run and moved ahead 61-57 on two free throws by Wallace.

    Tim Begley's two foul shots with 52 seconds remaining brought Penn to within 61-59, and Begley then tapped in a missed shot with six-tenths of a second left to send the game into overtime.

    The Tigers built a 72-67 edge before Penn's Jeff Schiffner hit a 3-pointer with 26 seconds left. Logan then made his two free throws five seconds later, then added two more with 1.7 seconds left for the final score.

    It was the ninth straight win for Princeton, while Penn, which had 18 turnovers in the game, had its five-game winning streak snapped.
