Rosen Lifts Penn Over Yale
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Zack Rosen’s jump shot with 2 seconds left gave Pennsylvania a 60-58 win over Yale on Saturday night.
Tied at 58 after Yale’s Greg Mangano made a layup with 3:10 remaining, Rosen had a turnover with 1:25 to play.
The Bulldogs, however, then missed three shots in a span of 28 seconds. The last one was a jumper by Austin Morgan, which was blocked by Mike Howlett with 27 seconds left and recovered by the Quakers (11-12, 5-4).
Tyler Bernardini scored 16 points, Howlett added 11 and Mike Cartwright 10 for Penn, which snapped a four-game losing skid. Howlett also had three of the Quakers’ five blocks.
Penn shot 50.9 percent from the field (27 of 53), including 15 for 27 in the first half to lead 32-24 at the break.
Greg Mangano scored 26 points on 11-of-17 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds for Yale (12-12, 5-5). Porter Braswell chipped in 13 points for Yale.
