Chen, Nweke lead No. 25 Princeton down the stretch in 67-54 win over Penn

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Kaitlyn Chen scored 20 points, Chet Nweke added 17 and No. 25 Princeton held off a second-half charge to defeat Pennsylvania 67-54 for its 13 consecutive victory. The teams combined to make one of 11 shots in the first four minutes of the third quarter before a couple of 3-pointers by Ese Ogbevire and a layup by Mataya Gayle helped Penn get to within 46-42 after trailing by 11 at halftime. Ogbevire’s layup to open the fourth quarter got the Quakers within two points. Nweke and Chen made a series of free throws and Chen followed with a jumper to put Princeton up 54-46 with 6:40 remaining. Another six-point run had the Tigers ahead 60-48 with 3 minutes left and they led by double digits the rest of the game.
