PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) - Spencer Weisz and Amir Bell scored 16 points apiece as Princeton defeated Cornell 74-60 on Saturday, securing a 20-win season for the third time in five years.

The Tigers have won eight straight games (including a rematch win over Yale) since losing to Yale by four points on Jan. 30, and are still neck-and-neck with the Bulldogs for the Ivy championship with three games to play.

Holding a slim 37-34 halftime lead, Princeton (20-5, 10-1) shot 58 percent from the floor (15-26) to pull away from Cornell in the second half.

Matt Morgan scored 20 points and Robert Hatter 18 to lead Big Red (9-17, 2-10). Morgan became the Ivy League’s all-time freshman scoring leader with 473 points after Saturday.

Devin Cannady scored 15 points in 18 minutes for Princeton on 6-for-7 shooting from the field, including 3-for-3 from distance, and Steven Cook added 11.
