PHILADELPHIA - The Quakers had no answer for the duo of Katie Rollins and Lindsay Hallion on Saturday night, as the Harvard duo combimed for 39 of the Crimson's 76 points in a 76-54 win.
What was a six-point deficit for Penn at halftime quickly got out of hand as Harvard shot 64-percent on 16-of-25 shooting from the field in the final20 minutes. For the game, the Crimson shot 58-percent.
It was a tale of two halves for the Red and Blue. In the first half, the Quakers shot 55-percent, including 6-of-13 from beyond the three-point line. In the second half, the Quakers only took 19 shots, converting on only seven of them, for a total of 37-percent. A renewed defesnive effort from Harvard on the perimeter limited Penn to only five three-point attempts, and Penn only hit on one of them.
Carrie Biemer and Kim Adams again paced the Quakers. Biemer scored 13 points for the second consecutive game and Adams added 12 off the bench for Penn. Nine of Beimer's points came from long distance, as she was 3-of-4 from three-point range. Adams added five rebounds while Sarah Bucar led Penn in assists with five. Amy Donovan contributed solidly off the bench with seven points and four assists.
Up next for the Quakers, home games against Yale (Feb. 29) and Brown (March 1). Tip-off for both games is 7 p.m. at The Palestra.
