    PHILADELPHIA -- Jason Miller scored a career-high 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in leading Columbia to a 74-63 victory over Penn on Friday.

    K.J. Matsui had 11 points and Niko Scott and Patrick Foley 10 each for Columbia (8-11, 3-2 Ivy League), which won its third straight.

    It was Columbia's first win at Penn since 2002 and its first double-digit margin of victory at the Palestra since 1989.

    Tyler Bernardini had 15 points and Brennan Votel 13 for the Quakers (5-12, 1-2). All 12 Penn losses have come after trailing at the half.

    The Lions never trailed in the second half. Miller's three-point play gave Columbia a 60-52 advantage with 4:10 remaining. Penn closed to 63-56 with less than three minutes left, but Columbia hit 10 of 11 free throws down the stretch to seal the win.

    Neither team had more than a six-point lead in the first half, which included five ties and five lead changes. The Lions led 33-30 at the break on the strength of 13-for-26 shooting from the field.

    Penn shot 12-for-27 in the first half and was slowed by nine turnovers.
