PRINCETON, N.J. -- Senior Robyn Parks scored 25 points in her final collegiate game as VCU fell to Princeton 94-76 in the first round of the Women's NIT. Parks scored 21 of her points in the first half alone as the Rams remained even at 36-all with the Tigers at intermission.

The game remained close throughout, and VCU trailed 80-73 with 2:08 remaining before free throws exacerbated the final margin.

Sophomore Jessica Pellechio knocked down 4-of-8 three-pointers and scored 17 points to help bolster the VCU attack. Freshmen Monnazjea Finney-Smith and Keira Robinson added 13 and 11 points, respectively.

Alex Wheatley led Princeton with 22 points and 10 rebounds, while three other Tigers scored 18 points apiece.

Princeton shot 50 percent (30-of-60) in the game and outrebounded VCU 48-30. The Tigers also knocked down 10-of-23 from beyond the 3-point arc.

Princeton opened the second half with a 14-4 run, fueled by five points from Michelle Miller, to take a 50-40 lead it would not relinquish.

The Rams kept nipping at the Tigers' heels and eventually pulled within 78-71 on a conventional three-point play by Robinson with 2:32 left. But Princeton converted on 14-of-16 from the free throw line in the final 2:20.

The first half was a back-and-forth affair. VCU trailed 31-24 with 4:01 left before a 3-pointer by Pellechio and a three-point play by Parks fueled a 10-0 VCU run that gave the Rams a 34-31 lead. A layup by Finney-Smith with 19 seconds remaining in the period tied the game at 36-36.
