Recap: Penn vs. Harvard

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Tony Hicks scored 24 points to lead the way as the Penn Quakers defeated the Harvard Crimson, 75-72, in Ivy League action at The Palestra.

Darien Nelson-Henry registered a double-double of 18 points and 11 rebounds for Penn (8-20, 5-6 Ivy), which had lost its previous two games. Henry Brooks and Miles Cartwright scored 12 points apiece for the Quakers in the win.

Wesley Saunders, who leads the Ivy League in scoring, paced Harvard (17-9, 9-3) with 20 points on 5-of-10 shooting from the floor while Christian Webster tallied 16 points and four steals. Laurent Rivard chimed in with 14 points and Steve Moundou-Missi netted 10 points. The Crimson were riding a four-game winning streak into the weekend before suffering back-to-back setbacks to Princeton and the Quakers.

Harvard got off to a slow start and hit on just 26.1 percent of its field goal attempts in the first half. The Quakers shot 53.3 percent from the floor in the opening 20 minutes en route to a 38-26 halftime lead.

The Crimson battled back in the second stanza and Webster sank a 3-pointer to cut the lead to two at 74-72 with under 10 seconds remaining. After Hicks was fouled, he missed his first free-throw attempt, but drained the back end of his trip to make it a three point game with 2.6 seconds showing on the clock. Webster could not connect on his last second 3-point try as the Quakers hung on for the wire-to-wire victory.

Penn outscored the visitors, 34-14, in the paint to overcome its 2-of-8 performance from beyond the arc. Harvard lost despite hitting on 10-of-21 from 3-point range.

The victory for the Quakers comes just hours after the program recorded their 20th loss of the campaign against Dartmouth, only the second time in school history that Penn has suffered as many defeats in a single campaign.
