The Ivy League said yesterday that it had reviewed the controversial ending to Saturday's Penn-Brown basketball game in Providence and will not take any action.
The game ended on a put-back by Penn's Dan Monckton that appeared to have been released after time expired, but the basket was ruled good by referee Kevin Quirk.
Because there was no television broadcast of the game, there was no replay monitor courtside at the Pizzitola Center. Penn won, 55-54.
"The final determination of the outcome of the game rests with the game officials and their approval of the final score," the league office said in a statement. Without a monitor to check a replay, "it is the direct knowledge and judgment of the officials that prevails."
The league also cited the NCAA rule that once game officials leave the floor after the final buzzer, the game score is official.
