PHILADELPHIA -- Jarrod Simmons scored 12 points to lead five Pennsylvania players in double figures and the Quakers made 14 3-pointers in their 105-52 rout of Delaware State on Wednesday night.
It's the first time Penn has topped 100 points since the 2005-06 season.
Ten different Penn players hit at least one 3-pointer and all 15 who suited up scored at least 3 points. Penn outscored Delaware State 40-22 in the paint and 22-2 on fast breaks and got 22 points off of 14 Hornets turnovers.
Ryan Betley's 3 put Penn up for good, 3-2, and sparked a 23-4 run en route to a 55-24 halftime lead after shooting 65.5 percent from the field. Ray Jerome's 3 with 3:01 left gave Penn its largest lead at 56 points.
Jonathan Walker scored 10 points for Delaware State (2-13), which has lost nine straight.
The rebuilding Wildcats are set to raise the 2018 national championship banner next week -- and also lower expectations for the season to come after multiple NBA departures.
