PHILADELPHIA (AP) Zack Rosen scored 11 of his 19 points in the second half to lead Pennsylvania in a 54-43 comeback win over Brown on Friday night.

The win keeps the Quakers (18-11, 10-2 Ivy league) a half-game behind Harvard for first place the conference with a game in-hand. Penn hosts Yale on Saturday and travels to Princeton on Tuesday in its regular-season finale, while Harvard finishes Saturday at Cornell.

Brown's Matt Sullivan tied the game at 36-all on a 3 with 8:12 left in the game. Tyler Bernardini gave Penn the lead for good, though, at 39-36 with a trey from the right corner with 8:02 remaining.

Dockery Walker pulled the Bears to within two points, 42-40, with 5:12 left in the game. That was as close as the Bears would get as Penn outscored Brown 12-3 down the stretch.

Sean Harris had 16 points to pace Brown (8-22, 2-11).
