PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Mark Zoller scored a career-high 29 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and Brian Grandieri added 19 points to lead Penn to an 80-66 victory over Monmouth on Tuesday night.

Zoller shot 12-for-16, including 3-for-5 from 3-point range as the Quakers (4-2) won their fourth straight after an 0-2 start. Ibby Jaaber added a career-best 10 assists and had six steals.

Marques Alston had a season-high 23 points for the Hawks (3-4).

Monmouth trailed 43-40 two minutes into the second half before Zoller scored 10 points in a 15-3 outburst that gave Penn a 60-45 advantage.

Alston scored on a layup that got Monmouth within 60-50 with 10:13 left. But the Quakers pulled ahead 69-50 on a Grandieri jumper, and Monmouth never got closer than 12 points.

Penn used a 13-3 run midway through the first half to take a 27-17 lead before the Hawks closed to 31-26 on consecutive baskets by Mike Shipman.

The Quakers took a 40-28 lead on a 3-pointer by Jaaber and, led by Zoller's 15 first-half points, built a 43-35 lead at the half.
