Providence, RI (SportsNetwork.com) - Cedric Kuakumensah registered a double- double with 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Brown Bears to a 62-55 win over the Penn Quakers in an Ivy League showdown at the Pizzitola Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the Bears (12-9, 4-3 Ivy) were Sean McGonagill and Steven Spieth with 15 and 12 points, respectively, as the team won for the second time in the last three outings.

The Quakers (6-14, 3-3) were paced by Darien Nelson-Henry who dropped in 20 points, cleared seven rebounds and blocked five shots in their second straight setback.
