Princeton turned the ball over 14 times in the first half, but in the second half, it took advantage of Austin turnovers by making four quick buckets in under a minute to extend its lead.

“When you come out and you turn the ball over on three, four straight possessions that lead to runouts and layups and easy baskets for Princeton, that was the difference,” Austin coach Kris Fadness said.
