PHILADELPHIA -- Reserve guard Harrison Gaines scored all 14 of his points in the second half as Penn overcame a sluggish start to defeat Brown 64-54 on Saturday.

Kevin Egee had 13 points and Rob Belcore had 11 for Penn (9-16, 5-6 Ivy League), which won its first league home game of the season.

Matt Mullery had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Bears (7-19, 1-11), who made only three of 24 3-point shots.

Brown jumped out to an 18-5 lead, scoring on a 3-point shot and seven layups, while Penn was committing seven turnovers. Egee then hit a 3-point shot to ignite a 16-5 run, and his steal and layup brought the Quakers to within 23-21 at halftime.

The lead went back and forth in the second half and a trey by Garrett Leffelman gave Brown a 52-50 edge with four minutes remaining. Gaines then hit a 3-pointer but a Mullery layup gave the Bears a 54-53 lead. Zach Rosen then hit a jumper and Belcore made a 3-pointer at the 2:23 mark, and Brown failed to score again.
