"I don't hit it very far, and when I swing harder, I start playing bad. So he just told me to play my own game."
Maziar, who said his best finish in college prior to the weekend was "probably in the top half of the field," shot a 2-over-par 72 Sunday. His 142 total for 36 holes put him in fourth place.
"Joey was the difference this week," Parker said. "He's usually our five guy. I told the kids [Saturday] morning, 'We need a four or five guy. Don't leave anybody out there hanging.' It's amazing what he did . . . 142, that's great."
"It kind of came out of nowhere," Maziar said.
The Big Green needed the play of Maziar and their No. 1 competitor, senior Peter Williamson, who fired a 70 to take second in the individual standings at 139, to eke out a 6-stroke victory over Campbell. Furman, the defending team champion, took third.
By tying St. John's for fourth place, Penn captured the Big Five championship with the help of sophomore Max Marsico, who holed out a 7-iron from 170 yards out for a double-eagle 2 at the 503-yard 18th to finish with a 69.
"I could only see the cloth part of the flag," said Marsico, the Quakers' low man at 145. "I just saw the ball come down there. I didn't know what happened, and then I saw my coach [Scott Allen] jumping up and down in the background.
"It was pure joy, but I didn't believe it at first. I'm thinking Coach is just pulling my leg. The ball mark was only about a foot from the hole."
Allen was a happy spectator.
"When the ball was in the air, I thought for a second, 'That's right at it. It would be cool if it went in,' " the coach said. "And it dropped right in, a terrific shot."
Sebastian Backlund, a junior at Francis Marion by way of Sweden, eagled the 18th and finished with the best round of the tournament - a 66 - to take individual honors at 138, 1 stroke ahead of Williamson. Freshman Andrew Gai of Campbell shot a 70 for third place at 141, followed by Maziar and Pat Wilson of St. John's (68-143).
Villanova's Michael Kania fired back-to-back 72s for a 144 to finish as the low Big Five contestant.
The team victory was special for Dartmouth because it marked the first time the Big Green have won a tournament away from their home course since 1999.
"It's great to do that," Parker said. "We've got a good group of kids."
It also bodes well for Dartmouth that seven of the eight Ivy League schools were in the 22-team field.
Penn was second-best among the Ivies, but Allen went home with what he wanted - the Big Five trophy.
"It means a lot," he said. "That's what this tournament is all about. I told the guys, 'After the Ivy League, this is the most important thing for us.' "
