PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Ross Morin scored 20 points and Alex Zampier had 16 of his 19 points in the second half as Yale defeated Penn 87-79 on Friday.
Travis Pinick added 15 points for Yale (12-13, 7-4 Ivy League) as the Bulldogs made 32 of 68 shots and used their height advantage to make 14 of 18 second-half field goals from the foul line or closer.
Harrison Gaines scored 24 points and Tyler Bernardini had 15 for the Quakers (8-16, 4-6), who made only 17 of 32 foul shots.
Yale trailed 48-45 five minutes into the second half, but Zampier sparked an 18-5 run capped by a layup by Paul Nelson that gave the Bulldogs a 63-53 lead with 8:48 left.
Penn closed to 63-57 at the 6:55 mark, but Jordan Gibson scored five straight points and the Quakers never got closer than seven points after that.
The Quakers have now lost eight of 10 home games this year, including all five Ivy League contests at home.
