BOX SCORE

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. -- Ryan Betley scored 26 points and Antonio Woods scored 23 and Pennsylvania outlasted Monmouth in a four-overtime thriller Saturday night beating the Hawks 101-96.

It was the second four-overtime affair in Penn's history. The first one occurred on March 13, 1920 when Penn beat Princeton 26-23.

The Quakers used a 10-0 run in the final stanza to end the game. Eddie Scott added 21 points and 13 boards for Penn.

Monmouth's Austin Tilghman buried a deep 3 at the horn to force the fourth overtime tied at 89. Tilghman forced the initial overtime when he banked in a runner at the buzzer to knot it at 64. Tilghman finished with 19 points and 12 boards.

Scott threw down a dunk to tie at 78 with eight seconds to go after he gathered Ryan Betley's missed 3-pointer at the end of the second overtime.

Near the end of the first overtime, Woods made a pair of free throws with 36 seconds left to tie it 71. Each team missed a shot for a chance to win.

Monmouth opened an 11-3 lead before the Quakers got hot. With the score tied at 24, Penn went on a 21-7 run over the final 6:28 of the first half and led 45-31 at the break. Pennsylvania (5-3) shot 51.9 percent (14 of 27) in the first half including 7 of 14 from 3-point range.

But Penn went cold, and after Max Rothschild made a pair of free throws with 9:53 left, the Quakers went scoreless over the next four minutes. Monmouth (2-4) used a 9-0 run and cut the deficit to 56-53.

Caleb Wood added three 3s and 13 points for the Quakers (19-7, 9-1), who shot 52 percent and made 11 of 25 from the arc.

Terrance McBride scored 14 points, Jack Gordon and Matt Morgan 12 each and Stone Gettings 11 for the Big Red (10-13, 4-6), who shot 50 percent but just 6 of 21 on 3-pointers. Morgan, the nation's eighth-leading scorer coming in at 23.1 points per game, was 0 for 8 from the arc.
