Penn Vs. Manhattan Final Score: Quakers Defeat Jaspers 75-72 At The Palestra

The Pennsylvania Quakers snapped a three-game losing streak on Tuesday night with a 75-72 win over the Manhattan Jaspers in MAAC action at the Palestra in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Not surprisingly, Penn's senior point guard Zack Rosen was the top scorer of the night, bucketing 20 points and one rebound with five assists and one steal. The Jaspers' George Beamon led Manhattan with 16 points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in a losing effort.

The Jaspers actually led 39-34 at the half; however, a couple of missed three-pointers cost Manhattan in the end and Penn was able to capitalize on the mistake.

Tuesday night's win pushes the Quakers, who move on to face the Villanova Wildcats on Saturday at the Pavilion, to an even 4-4 (2-4 at home). The Jaspers fall to 3-4 in defeat (0-3 on the road) and will next face the Rider Broncs on Friday night at Alumni Gymnasium.
