VIDEO: Princeton beats Rider in OT on 3-point buzzer-beater

Finals Week provides students with unnecessary stress. It also provides college basketball fans with very little to salivate over.

Which is exactly why I bring you news of last night's Garden State Showdown between Princeton (4-6) and Rider (1-9).

The one-win Broncs led by as many as 16, but the Tigers clawed back for much of the second half, thanks in large part to Ian Hummer's 21 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists and four steals.

But in overtime down by two, Mack Darrow, who had yet to make a field goal all game, came up large for Princeton.

The shot may have not been on par with the most recent Princeton buzzer-beater, the Ivy League-winning, NCAA Tournament bid-sealing shot hit by Doug Davis over Harvard last season.

But a buzzer-beater is still a buzzer-beater. And for the Tigers, now 5-6, it is definitely something to rejoice about.

(Apologize for the poor video quality. But again, it's Finals Week. The college students aren't the only ones taking the week off from hoops.)
