ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) - Henry Caruso and Amir Bell had 13 points each and Princeton beat Cornell 85-56 for its third straight win on Friday night.

The Tigers (15-5, 5-1 Ivy League) broke out to a 33-8 lead just past the midpoint of the first half and kept their lead between 16 and 33 the rest of the way.

Devin Cannady added 11 points and Myles Stephens 10 for Princeton, which shot 50 percent from the field, 44 percent from 3-point range and 90 percent from the foul line.

Cannady was 3 of 4 from 3-point range while Caruso, Bell and Spencer Weisz added two 3-pointers each.

Cornell (9-12, 2-5) led on the opening basket but trailed immediately after as Princeton’s Weisz hit a 3. The Big Red made three of their next 20 from the field.

Matt Morgan was the Cornell’s lone double-digit scorer with 15 points.
