NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Princeton's Douglas Davis hit a leaning jump shot at the buzzer to give the Tigers a trip to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2004 with a wild 63-62 win over Harvard.
The Crimson, who split the regular season title with Princeton, were seeking their first NCAA bid since 1946.
Davis had 15 points to lead the Tigers (25-6), who will represent the Ivy League for the 24th time in the tournament after overcoming an eight-point second half deficit.
Keith Wright scored 16 points for Harvard (23-6), which still has a chance for an at-large bid.
Ian Hummer's basket in the lane gave Princeton a 61-60 lead with 37 seconds left. Harvard chose not to call a timeout and Brandyn Curry found himself open for a layup that gave Harvard the lead with 11 seconds left.
