    PRINCETON, N.J. -- Spencer Weisz sank a pair of free throws that finally put Princeton in the clear as the Tigers went 8-for-10 from the line in the final 43 seconds to fend off Kent State 73-68 in a down-to-the-wire thriller on Tuesday.

    The Tigers (10-2 for the first time since 1997-98) were 29 of 40 from the line as Kent State was whistled for 27 fouls. The Golden Flashes (9-4) fell behind by as many as 15 in the second half before clawing back with a rain of 3-pointers (10-22).

    Devareaux Manley scored 11 of his 17 points in the final 5:48, including a pair of 3-pointers and five free throws to forge two ties and two one-point leads for the Flashes, who had trailed since early in the game.

    Princeton's T.J. Bray reclaimed the lead, 67-66, with two free throws. Will Barrett's 19 points led the Tigers, Hans Brase added 15.
