LATE NOTICE: Princeton University men’s basketball senior star Dan Mavraides looks for an opening last Saturday against Columbia. After going scoreless for the first 33:45 of the contest, Mavraides poured in 14 points down the stretch to help Princeton rally to a 66-61 victory. The victory improved Princeton to 22-5 overall and 10-1 in the Ivy League and combined with Harvard’s 70-69 loss to Yale, the Tigers moved into first place a half-game ahead of the Crimson (21-5 overall, 10-2 Ivy). Princeton plays at Dartmouth on March 4, at Harvard on March 5 and at Penn on March 8.
