Penn Dials Up Long Distance

The Penn Quakers (7-4) went down I-95 to Washington, DC to take on the lowly, Howard Bison (2-12).

Howard came in averaging only 67.9 points per game and stood firmly in 268th place in the NCAA rankings.

True to form, Howard had an anemic defense in dropping the affair, 81-62.

Penn went long distance much of the game and fired 40 shots from three-point land.

Freshman, Max Martz came off the bench and led the Quakers by draining 6 long-range bombs and picking up 22 points.

As a team, Penn landed 14 of the 40 they attempted. Martz went 6 for 8, with help from Devon Goodman who chipped in 15 points and Ryan Betley added 13 points with 3 for 10 from long range.

For the beleaguered Bison, Charles Williams was their stand out and recorded a double-double on 16 points and 10 boards.

Wayne Bristol Jr. contributed 13 points to complement Williams.
