NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP)—Harrison Gaines scored 19 points to lead Penn to a 68-63 victory over Yale on Saturday.
Tyler Bernardini added 13 points and two assists, while Zack Rosen added 12 points and two assists for the Quakers (7-13, 3-3 Ivy League), who completed a weekend sweep in league play.
Alex Zampier led Yale (9-13, 4-4) with 18 points and four assists, 14 points which came in the second half.
But Zampier couldn’t convert as Yale trailed 66-63 with 20 seconds to play. He couldn’t get off a contested three-point attempt and instead drove to basket before missing a layup with 8 seconds to play.
The rebound was batted to halfcourt and recovered by Bernardini, who was fouled and hit both free throws, to close out the scoring.
Travis Pinick added 15 points and eight rebounds for the Bulldogs, while Michael Sands had 10 points.
Penn led 33-25 at the half.
