ESPN had the following team stats on the game page.

TEAM PPG PA FG% RPG APG BPG SPG STRK
Penn 69.0 67.9 44.5 34.5 14.5 3.6 6.6 W1
Pton 72.1 61.5 45.4 33.2 14.4 3.3 6.9 W17

Doesn't look too good. I think we need to rebound and shoot really well!

Tell your statistics to shut up.

We have no chance.

Do you believe in miracles?

Of course we have a "chance." We just have to play the entire game as we did during the big comeback at Princeton. And they have to play as they did during the big comeback at Princeton.

As I keep saying, House Money.

The Princeton board is already making excuses for a loss. So maybe you're right.

Maybe it'll be something like this.

Still get a chill from that.

Just like I always did when the Palestra was full for a Penn game.

According to the Princeton board it sounds like that '79 Quaker team would have had a cakewalk against Magic if they only held the Final Four in the Palestra.

Wow. Goosebumps all these years later. Still remember where I was. I think this is the only hockey game I ever watched in full.

While the court is ours, if you saw the pictures from yesterday, it doesn't look like our gym. The IL, in the spirit of fairness (idiocy?) made them take all the banners down. Looks like a house with no furniture. Just another reason to beat Princeton's and Brown's brains in!

SD's pre-game speech should go something like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdmyoMe4iHM

"Great moments are born from great opportunity... And that's what you have here today boys. That's what you've earned here today. One game. If we played them ten times, they might win nine. But not this game. Not today."

This is just one idiotic Robin Harris idea to make this a "neutral" court. I also heard that she is:

1) Not allowing it to be called the Palestra. This weekend it must be referred to as "The Ivy League Arena".

2) The Penn players must switch dorm rooms with other students so that the players can't sleep in their own beds.

3) Penn players are not allowed to walk to the game. They have to get on a bus and drive around Philadelphia for an hour before the game.

4) Noise amplifiers will be put in the other schools cheering sections to help equalize it with all the Penn fans.

Penn's pre-game meal should be in Princeton.

Princeton gets the home locker room.

Which means they ought to see plenty of "Beat Princeton" signs in there.

The locker rooms are assigned based on seed from what I hear. The Women and men will share the locker rooms. #1 seed (Princeton) gets the womens home locker room, #2 seed (Harvard) gets Penn mens home locker room, Penn ends up in the worst locker room in the Palestra.

Naw, the old rowing tanks in the 2nd sub-basement!

Actually, all of the old Hutch is gone, which is sad, in a way.
