BOSTON (AP) -- Kyle Casey scored 20 points as Harvard rallied from a 10-point deficit and then outlasted Princeton 67-64 Friday night, avenging its only Ivy League loss of the season and setting a program record for wins in a season.

The Crimson (24-3, 10-1), who fell to the Tigers 70-62 on Feb. 11, led by six in the first half before Princeton surged to a 33-23 lead at the 3:59 mark. Harvard held the Tigers scoreless the rest of the half to close to 33-32.

With Princeton up 50-43 and 11:05 remaining, the Crimson went on a 9-0 run.

After the Tigers got to 59-58 with 53 seconds left, Harvard went 8 of 8 from the free throw line in the last 34 seconds.

Brandyn Curry added 15 points, Oliver McNally 13 and Keith Wright 12 for the Crimson.

Ian Hummer and Douglas Davis scored 14 apiece to lead Princeton (15-11, 6-4).
