NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Jack Montague hit two late 3-pointers and finished with 11 points to cap Yale’s come-from-behind, 55-50 victory over Pennsylvania on Saturday night.
Yale (21-8, 10-2 Ivy League) keeps pace with Harvard (20-6, 10-2), which beat Columbia on Saturday, for the top spot in the league standings. Yale travels to Harvard on Friday night.

Montague added another trey and Justin Sears converted a three-point play to make it 54-47 with :33 left. Penn’s Tony Hicks answered with a 3-pointer, but the Quakers missed their last five shots to end it.
