Amir Bell finished with 17 points and Steven Cook added 11 for the Tigers (10-6, 3-0 Ivy League), who have won 12 straight league games at home, their longest since winning 21 consecutive from 2010-2013.

Yale’s Alex Copeland hit a jumper to give the Bulldogs the lead, 53-52, with 3:04 left. But from there Princeton seized control, outscoring the Bulldogs 14-5 to seal the win.
