PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) — Ray Salnave scored 21 points and hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to rally Monmouth to a 67-66 victory over Princeton on Tuesday night.
Jaelin Llewellyn made 1 of 2 free throws with 19 seconds left in the game to give Princeton a 64-62 lead. Salnave answered with a layup for the Hawks (5-5) to knot the score at 64 with 12 seconds to go. Melik Martin fouled the Tigers’ Ryan Schwieger, who sank both foul shots to put Princeton up 66-64 with 4 seconds remaining. That was plenty of time for Salnave to deliver the game-winner.
Salnave added seven rebounds and four steals. Deion Hammond had 14 points, while Martin came off the bench to score 10 on 4-of-5 shooting.
