PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Sean McGonagill posted 24 points, eight rebounds, and five assists as Brown defeated Princeton 80-67 Saturday in the Bears' season finale, ending the Tigers' hopes of an Ivy League title.
Ian Hummer scored 21 points for Princeton (16-11, 9-4), which entered the weekend half a game ahead of Harvard but lost two straight and, with that, its grasp of first place in the conference.
Brown led for all but 1 minute of the first half and by as many as 12 points, 62-50, in the second half before Princeton cut it to 66-61 on a Hummer free throw with 1:28 showing. But the Tigers would get no closer as Brown nailed 12 free throws in the final 1:21 to seal it.
