Poison Ivy: FSU Falls in 3 OTs

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- History was made at the Donald L. Tucker Center Friday night but the Florida State men's basketball team surely won't have any interest in commemorating Dec. 30, 2011 in the future.

Playing to a third overtime for the first time in program history, the Seminoles were upset by Princeton, 75-73, marking the second time this season that FSU (8-5) has lost to an Ivy League school. The 'Noles fell to a talented Harvard team earlier this season in the Bahamas.

Despite scoring just 10 points in the first half, Florida State outscored the Tigers (7-7) 37-20 in the second to force the first of the three extra periods.
