Princeton was led by junior Kelsey Mitchell with a game high 35 points and 6 assists. Mitchell is now 20 points shy of reaching the 1,000 career point club.
Coach Phillips received a strong performance from junior Carlie Pogue off the bench. Pogue recorded her first double-double of the season with 14 points and 13 rebounds. Princeton's bench outscored the Lady Aves 15-4.
Princeton shot 23-62 (37.1%) from the floor, and 23-31 from the free throw line. The defense forced 18 turnovers, registered 7 blocks and 5 steals.
