PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Ibrahim Jaaber scored 18 points and Steve
Danley added 14 as Penn defeated Brown 68-51 Friday for its eighth
win in 10 games.

Brian Grandieri had 11 points and Mark Zoller 10 rebounds for
the Quakers (11-6, 3-0 Ivy League), the defending league champions.

Mark MacDonald had 13 points and Keenan Jeppesen had 11 for
Brown (6-12, 2-3), who made only 17 of 48 shots (35 percent) and

Brown got no closer than 17 points in the second half, and a
layup by Danley gave the Quakers their biggest lead, 60-13, midway
through the second half. Brown never got closer than 17 points over
the final 20 minutes.

the Bears to just 6-for-22 shooting and forcing eight turnovers.
