Another dominant defensive 1Q (10 points game 3,. 5 points game 2 , 7 points game 1) allows the Quakers to take control from the opening minutes, grab and maintain a comfortable lead, allowing starters to have to play less than 30 min per game, and win going away. Penn was the clear favorite in all three games and showed it by playing well above the level of the competition.

A few observations after three games:

• The offensive pace is quicker, with very good passing and spacing on the offensive end leading to 72 assists on 98 made baskets

• The defensive pressure, especially on a made baskets, had led to 30 steals and forcing 58 TO - Penn is averaging 22 points off of TO

Junior Eleah Parker has player like someone deserving to be up for the Lisa Leslie Award: - shooting at a 66% clip - 18 ppg - 7 rebounds per game) . If you have a moment, please vote for Eleah : http://www.hoophallawards.com/index.php

Freshman Kayla Padilla has made an immediate impact at the two. While the 17.7 ppg does jump off the stat sheet - what should impress more is the great court vision and body control driving to the basket

Senior Kendal Grasela has 19 assists over the past two games … attacking on offense and creating easy baskets.

Primary rotation is nine deap - all averaging 10+ min per game

Clearly still in early days, defensive rotation can be crisper, especially to the open perimeter shooter … free throws looked great after game 1 … not as much in games 2 & 3

At St. Joes on Wed will be a better measuring stick …16 point loss to Seaton Hall (who just lot to Princeton by 1) - 14 point win over Columbia
