Princeton 90 Hamilton 48 - Hamilton College

Princeton 90 Hamilton 48

Gabe Lewullis and Brian Earl each scored 15 points as Princeton cruised to a victory over Division III Hamilton College.

Princeton (12-3) capitalized on a 28-9 run to open up a 37-13 lead with two minutes lift in the opening half. The Tigers had not played for two weeks.

"It was weird not playing for two or three weeks," Lewullis said. "We sort of forgot what it's like playing out there."

Unfortunately for the Continentals (8-4), the Tigers' shooking skills were not rusty. By the time Princeton headed for the locker room with a 40-14 halftime lead, it had shot a blazing 51.7 percent from the field.

Princeton also forced 12 turnovers in the first half.

"It's hard to look good in a game like that, and we looked pretty good," said Princeton coach Bill Carmody.

Added Hamilton coach Tom Murphy, "We didn't have a lot of preparation defensively. I think the coaches knew who we had to guard, but I'm not sure the players did."

Forward Michael Schantz led Hamilton both in field goals and on the boards with 15 points and seven rebounds.
