Trailing 33-28 at halftime, Brown tied Penn 46-all on Sean McGonagill’s four-point play with 12:21 left. The Bears held a 64-58 advantage on Matt Sullivan’s 3-pointer with 1:57 remaining but did not score again.
Cartwright converted a 3-pointer and 5 of 6 free throws down the stretch to secure the victory.
McGonagill had 15 points, Sullivan and Stephen Albrecht scored 13 each, and Rafael Maia had 12 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Bears (12-15, 6-7), whose four-game winning streak came to an end. Brown faces Princeton on Saturday.
