Silpe saved the day. 3 for 5 from 3.

Thank you for providing data that backs up my sense that Columbia is most likely to be the last team in the Ivy 4. At least at the moment. Keeping an eye on Brown though.


What in the world happened to Brown?? Aside from losing a little scratch in a 3-team parlay, I will take that loss all day. Knock them down further please.

Yes, this was a night where, for Ivy tournament purposes, every game went optimally for Penn. We now have a 4 game lead with 7 to play. We probably need one more win to more or less clinch a berth.

As for Brown, consistency is an issue for now. They have games where they play like they did at Penn and Princeton, and then there are games where they . . . don’t. They seem to have high offensive upside, but they often aren’t there. Which is why their pomeroy rating seems at odds with what we all thought we saw at the Palestra. Also, 24 shots for Cambridge is just too many, almost regardless of how good he is.

I’m sure the refs did another homer job. Oh wait, it was at Brown.

Well played. I just wish you guys could have seen how fired up Mike's dad was last week after the game. And he was was wrong...Just like he was wrong with his football team of choice. It's still very contenting.

Pomeroy, unimpressed with our single-digit road win, drops us from 134 to 142.

So if Dartmouth doesn't hit that corner 3 fading away and Penn wins by 6-7, they don't drop or drop just by a few instead...Lol. It's not like this was a double-digit spread and there weren't so many games that winning teams jumped them either. They just didn't beat Dartmouth by enough. Their ranking, which I'm sure is why we fell, sure doesn't seem like that of a team with a ton of close losses.

This. We lose if not for Silpe. Though it felt like he made more than 3 of them.

Welcome to the rotation, Jake. Just be more diligent staying with your man on D.

Unlike last weekend the team with the huge FT disparity ( Dartmouth 22 Penn 9 before end of game fouls) still found a way to win while their fans never mentioned it. Just saying

Absolutely. I said we would cover if we hit our FTs down the stretch and we would have if not for that crazy 3 which Penn to foul (love that move, BTW.)

As for Silpe, he gave up a 3 when he fell and would have gotten credit for another 3 of his own had it not been waved off with an offensive foul off the ball.

I think this game went down about the way we thought it would. I guess we were lucky again. NOT. Experience, depth (read: Silpe), AJ, and some shrewd coaching moves won this thing and it should not have been that close. I was surprised at how much size Dartmouth put out there, and how effective it was with Max and Caleb out of sorts. The only 'luck' was that Dartmouth shot the ball both inside and out as badly as we did when they got looks.

Unaccustomed as I am to typing the words "when Colin was right" he called that Steve would address the defensive boards problem in the first half, someone would find the range from 3 and Penn
would win in the end.

Here is what I do not get: Why, with 3 of out top 6 having bad nights, and Betley in foul trouble, did we not see SD go to his bench aside from Jake and Jarrod. I was sure we would see Jones at some point, and this was a good opportunity to get Devon out there - he would have created a real matchup problem for Dartmouth just as he did in the 2nd game last year. Can anyone help me understand this? To win on road Saturdays, your bench needs to come through.
