PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) - Devin Cannady scored 20 points to lead Princeton to a 75-63 win over Yale in an Ivy League showdown Friday night, ending the Bulldogs’ 12-game winning streak.

Spencer Weisz added 15 points and Henry Caruso 14 for the Tigers (17-5, 7-1), who are now a half-game behind the Bulldogs (17-6, 8-1).

Brandon Sherrod and Makai Mason had 18 apiece for Yale, whose winning streak matched Stephen F. Austin for the longest in the nation and was the best at the school since the 1948-49 season. The Bulldogs fell two short of the school record established in 1906-07. Justin Sears added 15 points and 10 rebounds.

Yale was up 27-21 when Cannady hit back-to-back 3-pointers to tie the game and start a 13-0 run. After Mason ended the Yale drought, Amir Bell, who finished with 11 points, scored the last five points of the half to put the Tigers up 39-29.

The Bulldogs shot 39 percent, including 1 of 12 from 3-point range.
