HANOVER, N.H. (AP) Zack Rosen scored 16 of his 27 points in the final 6:50 to lead Pennsylvania over Dartmouth 57-54 Friday night.

The Quakers (16-11, 8-2) remained 1 1/2 games behind league leader Harvard - just one in the loss column - and will face the Crimson on Saturday in Boston.

Dartmouth (5-22, 1-10) closed within a point three times in the final 1:13, on baskets by John Golden, David Rufful and Jvonte Brooks, but Rosen responded each time. He sank a jumper with 40 seconds left, two free throws at the 0:24 mark and two more for the game's final points with 10 seconds remaining.

Penn, which has won its last four, beat Dartmouth 58-55 on Feb. 11 on a 3-pointer by Rosen with 3 seconds left.

Rob Belcore added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Quakers.

Golden scored 13 points, Rufful 12 and Tyler Melville 11 for the Big Green.
