Penn 64, Princeton 48
PRINCETON, N.J. (AP)—Mark Zoller scored 23 points and Ivy champion Penn shot better than 60 percent for most of the game in a 64-48 win over Princeton Tuesday night.
Penn (22-8, 13-1), which clinched its third consecutive Ivy title last Friday with a win over Yale, won its 10th straight game and is 16-2 since losing 102-64 to North Carolina on Jan. 3.
Ibrahim Jaaber and Brian Grandieri scored 10 points each for Penn, which finished the game shooting 23-of-43 (54 percent). Zach Finley led Princeton with 12 points.
While the Quakers will spend the next nine days preparing for a first-round NCAA Tournament game, last-place Princeton (11-17, 2-12) completed the program’s worst Ivy League season since it began conference play 51 years ago.
Under coach Joe Scott, Princeton finished under .500 overall for the second straight year, the first time that has happened since the 1946-47 season. Scott, a 1987 Princeton grad who was hired in 2004 after four seasons at Air Force, is 18-24 in the Ivy League in three seasons.
