    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jerry Johnson scored 23 points, including eight in overtime, to lead Rider to a 74-68 victory over Penn on Wednesday night.

    Steve Castleberry had 15 points and Edwin Muniz and Terrance Mouton had 10 each for the Broncos (8-5), who defeated the Quakers for the second straight year to win their fourth in a row.

    Jan Fikiel had a career-high 21 points and Tim Begley added 18 points and 10 rebounds for Penn (4-7), which lost its fifth straight game.

    Neither team had more than a five-point lead in regulation, which ended 62-62 when Rider's Paul Johnson hit two free throws with 1:30 to play.

    Penn took a 68-67 lead on a 3-pointer by Ibby Jaaber with 2:42 left in overtime, but a put-back by Paul Johnson gave the Broncos a 69-68 edge. Jerry Johnson then scored five straight points, with his two free throws with 29 seconds left sealing the victory.

    Both teams struggled with their shooting in the first half, which ended with Rider holding a 29-26 advantage. Rider connected on only 10-of-27 shots in the half, while Penn was 10-of-31 and committed 10 turnovers.
