Penn 74, Cornell 56

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) -- Brian Grandieri had 18 points and Mark
Zoller had 16 points and seven rebounds to lead Penn to a 74-56 win
over Cornell Friday night.

The game was the Ivy League opener for both teams.

Penn (8-6, 1-0 Ivy League) committed just five turnovers, while
forcing 16 Cornell miscues that resulted in eight steals. Cornell
(7-8, 0-1) were held to 39.6 percent from the field, while the
Quakers shot 48.4 percent.

Ryan Wittman led Cornell with 16 points and was the only player
to score in the double digits for the Big Red.

Penn was up 54-49 with 11 minutes to play before Grandieri hit a
pair of jumpers. Kevin Egee, who had 10 points, followed up with
back-to-back 3-pointers to make it 64-49.

Cornells Graham Dow then sunk a pair of free throws, but
Grandieri sandwiched a pair of buckets around another Egee basket,
and the score was 70-51.

Egee completed the run with a pair of foul shots, pushing Penns
lead over 20 points.
