Spieth, Brown Sweeps Penn

Saturday, March 01, 2014

 

Freshman Steven Spieth scored 19 points and grabbed a career high 12 rebounds to lead Brown to a 76-67 Ivy League win over Penn to complete their first sweep over the Quakers since 2008.

Freshman Stephen Spieth, brother of PGA Tour star Jordan Spieth, led Brown to a win over Penn Friday.



Brown assures itself of a winning season and improves to 15-10 overall and 7-4 in the Ivy League, maintaining third place in the Ivy standings. Penn falls to 7-17 overall and 4-6 in Ivy play.

Spieth connected on 6-of-12 field goals and 6-of-7 free throws in posting his first career double-double.

Sophomore Cedric Kuakumensah also registered a double-double for the Bears with 16 points and 10 rebounds. The Ivy League’s Defensive Player of the Year a year ago, Kuakumensah also blocked four shots. Senior Sean McGonagill, the Ivy League’s second leading scorer, chipped in with 13 points and seven assists.

The Bears welcomed back junior forward Rafael Maia, the Ivy League’s top rebounder, who missed the last two games due to injury. He responded with 10 rebounds and six points.

The Quakers were led by Tony Hicks, who scored a game high 25 points on 10-of-24 shooting from the field. Fran Dougherty posted a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Leading 37-33 at the half, Brown opened up a 13 points lead, 58-45, with 11:00 remaining on a McGonagill trey. Freshman Steven Spieth gave the Bears their biggest lead, 67-51, on a back-door layup with 4:20 left in the game.

The Quakers made a late run at the Bears, pulling as close as five points, 72-67, with 24 seconds remaining on a Dougherty field goal..

Spieth iced the game by hitting six-of six free down the stretch.

The Bears lead by as many as 10 points in the opening half, 24-14, on layup by junior Dockery Walker with 9:36 left. Penn cut the Brown lead to just two points, 28-28, with five minutes remaining on a trey by Tony Hicks.

Brown concludes its four-game road trip tomorrow evening (Saturday), traveling to Princeton, New Jersey to battle Princeton. Tip-off is 6 pm at Jadwin Gumnasium.
