Advertiser Staff

Ibrahim Jaaber scored a game-high 17 points as the University of Pennsylvania rallied past host Brigham Young-Hawai'i, 72-62, yesterday in a non-conference basketball game at Cannon Activities Center.

The Quakers (5-4), who beat the University of Hawai'i on Thursday, overcame a 45-39 deficit in the second half with an 18-5 run to beat the Division II Seasiders (3-5).

Austin Smylie scored on a layup with 5:56 to play as BYUH closed to 59-56, but Penn responded with baskets by Friedrich Ebede and Jaaber to regain control.

Smylie had 15 points and eight rebounds, Wu Tai-hao added 15 points and Eric Boyce 12 for BYUH.



Zack Whiting had 22 points, 10 assists and six rebounds as Chaminade defeated Cheyney (Pa.) University, 86-70, yesterday in a non-conference game at McCabe Gym.

Playing their fourth game in 74 hours, the Silverswords (9-4) shot 51.9 percent (28 of 54) from the field to win their eighth in a row.

"We knew we would have to set the tone and control the tempo the first five minutes of the second half," said Chaminade coach Matt Mahar.

They did, expanding a 41-31 halftime lead to 15 points, then 20 with eight minutes to play.

Asaad Brown led Cheyney (1-8) with 13 points.



Waiakea High freshman Kimberly Kim shot a 6-under-par 66 Friday the best score of the final round - to finish in a tie for ninth at the Joanne Winter Arizona Silver Belle Championship in Phoenix, Ariz.

Kim, 14, stumbled to a 7-over 79 in the second round, but finished at even-par 216 in the 110-player tournament that was open to female amateur golfers ages 13 to 23.

Ya-Ni Tseng, a 16-year-old from Laguna Hills, Calif. won with 69208.

Other Hawai'i golfers: Stephanie Kono (76217, 11th), Christine Kim (71218, tie for 12th) and Kelly Nakashima (74220, 16th).
