Penn 48, Princeton 35

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Mark Zoller scored 17 points and Penn overcame Princeton's ball-control offense and defeated the Tigers 48-35 Tuesday night.

Steve Danley and Ibrahim Jaaber each had eight points for the Quakers (15-8, 5-1 Ivy), while Jaaber, the career steals leader among all active Division I players, added six to raise his total to 285.

Lincoln Gunn scored eight points for the Tigers (10-11, 1-6), who made only 14 of 45 shots in losing for the seventh time in eight games.

Princeton, which started three freshmen and never led in the game, worked the shot clock on just about every possession. The Tigers, who trailed by as many as 11 points in the first half, went on a 10-2 run at the start of the second half to tie the score at 29-all.

But Penn scored 12 straight points, capped by a steal by Jaaber, whose slam dunk gave the Quakers a 41-29 lead with 5:10 to play. Princeton closed within 41-33 at the 3:09 mark, but seven straight points by the Quakers sealed the victory.
