Penn was weirdly efficient in scoring at the rim against Harvard this year. Some regression will come but hard to stay home on defense while dealing with the motion.

Towns took almost exclusively pull-up jumpers in the rematch but was still efficient with them. Those are the shots Donahue will give him, his success there will probably decide the game.

Amazing game and congrats to Harvard on a great season and hope you do well in NIT. Most importantly, I hope that Towns injury isn’t what I fear it could be - never want to see a knee buckle, and what a great player he is. Hope whatever it is heals quickly.

Great effort from a gutsy team. Will be happy to see them play one more time this week...and well, next year too.

Gritty effort by a young team in a hostile environment. Didn't see that last comeback coming to make it so close at the end, especially with the unfortunate injury to Towns. Assuming everyone comes back, the Crimson will be scary next year with another off-season of development.

Harvard similarly made it very close at the end of the first Palestra matchup a few weeks ago after it seemed like penn had it in the bag.
