STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Will Barrett scored 15 of his team-high 24 points in the final 6:34 of regulation and overtime Saturday to lead Princeton to an improbable 81-79 overtime comeback win over Penn State.
The game was coined as ''Return to Rec'' because the Nittany Lions (8-4) returned to their venerable old arena, Rec Hall, instead of the newer Bryce Jordan Center, which they moved to in 1996.
The Tigers (8-1) placed four other players in double figures. Hans Brase contributed 14, Spencer Weisz added 13 and T.J. Bray and Ben Hazel scored 11 each.
For Penn State, guards Tim Frazier and D.J. Newbill carried the scoring load with 24 points each. Ross Travis added 15 points and a game-high 12 rebounds.
Princeton, after struggling from the field all game, caught fire down the stretch and outscored the Nittany Lions 24-6 in the final 6:34 to send the game into overtime.
