– Huffman airballed his first two attempts on the night, but recovered in a big way, hitting his next four three-pointers and a layup in a personal 14-4 run that put the Bears in front at halftime, 32-30. However, Huffman missed all five of his second-half attempts, finishing with 16 points, all in the first half.
– Zoller played only 18 minutes due to foul trouble, fouling out at the 5:30 mark with 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting.

– Brown finished alone in fifth place a 6-8 in Ivy play, while Penn finishes up its regular season at Princeton (11-15, 2-11 Ivy) on Tuesday, March 5 at 7:30 pm.
