BOSTON -- Jeremy Lin scored 19 points to pace Harvard in an 80-66 win over Penn on Saturday night.

Lin also added six assists, five steals and three blocks for the Crimson (15-5, 4-2 Ivy League), who snapped a two-game losing streak. Oliver McNally added 14 points for Harvard.

The Crimson led 41-32 at halftime, and a 7-0 run in the second half gave Harvard a 48-35 advantage with 15:22 remaining. Kyle Casey's layup with 9:08 remaining capped a separate 7-1 run and gave the Crimson their largest lead of the game at 62-45.

The Quakers responded with an 11-0 run to cut the lead to 62-56 with 4:58 left, but would get no closer the rest of the way.

Dan Monckton scored a career-high 19 points off the bench and grabbed eight rebounds to pace Penn (3-15, 2-2), which had its two-game winning streak snapped.
