    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Brian Grandieri had 22 points and Cameron Lewis had 15 and nine rebounds, both career highs, as Penn struggled to a 79-68 victory over winless N.J. Tech on Saturday night.

    Tyler Bernardini also had 15 points for the Quakers (5-9), who committed 16 turnovers and missed 17 of 40 free throws in the game.

    Jheryl Wilson and Kraig Peters each had 12 points for the Highlanders (0-17), playing in only their second Division I season.

    N.J. Tech led 34-33 two minutes into the second half and trailed only 50-47 after a layup by Brendon Lyn with 12:30 left in the game.

    The Quakers then scored 11 straight points, six of them by Lewis, and the Highlanders never got closer than eight points after that.
