NEW YORK -- Carlie Littlefield scored 24 points, Bella Alarie became Princeton's all-time leading scorer, and the No. 21 Tigers beat Columbia 77-52 on Friday, extending their win streak to 21 games.
Alarie, who has 1,686 career points, scored a season-low six but added 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks. The two-time defending Ivy League player of the year hit a free throw early in the fourth quarter to break Sandi Bittler's record of 1,683 set from 1986-90.
Princeton (25-1, 13-0) never trailed and went 5 of 5 from the field -- including two 3-pointers -- during a 15-0 run that made it 63-39 with 8:28 to play.
Abby Hsu scored 12 points and Janiya Clemmons added 10 for Columbia (17-9, 8-5).
Princeton is tied with No. 2 Baylor for the second-longest active win streak in the nation. Top-ranked South Carolina has won 23 in a row.
Littlefield, the only Tigers player to score in double figures, has 1,010 career points and became the 26th player in school history to score at least 1,000.
