The 6-7 Princeton Tigers take down the Seminoles.

It took three overtimes, but Princeton finally dealt Florida State its first home loss of the season on Friday night, defeating the Seminoles 75-73 at the David L. Tucker Center.

The Tigers, 6-7 entering the game, held leads throughout the game and appeared close to victory several times at the end of regulation and the first two overtime periods, but were finally able to salt the win away 55 minutes of game time after the opening tip.

Douglas Davis and Ian Hummer posted 25 points each to lead the scoring for Princeton. Hummer pulled down 15 rebounds as well, which helped his team stay in the game on the glass. No other Tiger finished in double figures.

For Florida State, Michael Snaer was the big scorer, posting a 20-point, 4-rebound line on the evening, while Ian Miller scored 17 points and had five steals. Luke Loucks joined them in double figure scoring with 10 points and six rebounds.

Florida State shot 42 percent from the field for the evening but was a lackluster 4-18 from 3-point territory and a dreadful 11-22 from the foul line.

The loss drops the 'noles to 8-5 on the season. They will close out non-conference play on Jan. 4 at home before traveling to face Clemson in their Atlantic Coast Conference opener on Jan. 7.
