PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Antonio Woods had 15 points and a career-high 11 assists, and Sam Jones sparked a big second-half run which propelled Pennsylvania to a 79-72 win over Cornell on Saturday night.
Jones finished with 13 points, Darien Nelson-Henry scored 12 and Matt Howard 11 for Penn (9-18, 4-9 Ivy League). Tony Hicks and Darnell Foreman added 11 apiece.
Jones hit two 3-pointers, scoring eight, during a 20-2 run that gave the Quakers a 53-33 lead with 12 minutes to play.
Cornell (13-17, 5-9) went more than six minutes without a field goal during that stretch and trailed by double digits until the final seconds.
Penn, which came into the game averaging 60.1 points and had scored 50 and 54 points in its last two outings, scored 50 after halftime — its highest scoring half this season.
Shonn Miller led Cornell with 23 points. Wil Bathurst added a career-high 20.
