Great win for a great team. The fact that they won in the premier IVY venue the Palestra is even nicer. Congrats to Steve Donahue and the Quakers. Good luck in the NCAAs!

I was too nervous to watch much. I will watch the replay and enjoy later. Nervewarcking as I followed on gamecast and occasionally peaked in.

There isn't much that makes me feel better than seeing the Quakers beat Harvard and Amaker at the Palestra for the right to go to the NCAA Tournament. Now I have to sign off and get my heart rate back under 300!

Amy comes to games often enough. One of my highlights as an undergrad was getting her to participate in a rollout at a Big 5 game.

Congratulations to the Quakers on a tremendous win. With all the hype about the Ivy underclassmen, it was great that two seniors stepped up and made the difference.

Now let’s never have the Tournament at the Palestra again.

Yeah, I guess that's it for the Palestra. Welcome to that shittty little arena in Bridgeport.

I said recently that I'd be willing to have Ryan Betley's baby. Can I switch to Darnell? We'd have beautiful children.

Why should the Ivy League settle for Bridgeport, when all of the glamour of the Providence Dunkin' Donuts Center might be available.

How #%$@ awesome was that? IVY CHAMPS and NCAA bound! I think I lost 5 pounds sweating bullets on my couch the last few mins but totally worth it. My wife and baby were both sleeping so I had to use ninja like abilities to contain my reaction and jump up and down on the inside. Special shout out to the seniors Foreman and Wood stepping up!

Side note, really hope Towns injury isn’t as bad as it could be - never want to see a knee buckle and what a great player. Hope he is OK.

Amy shows up for big games--and she was here both in the season home finale and the tournament both days.

It's truly a quandry--we'll never get close to the Show we put on the last 2 years at any other arena. But it is a strong homecourt advantage for Penn.

Donahue postgame: “Honestly, when I came in here, I thought, ‘I’ve got to get someone better than Darnell Foreman if I’m going to win a championship.’ And sure enough, every stinking day he proved me wrong."

Well-deserved -- this was Penn's season, and they outplayed Harvard by more today than the scoreboard showed.

What does this even mean, Charlie? Stop being a punk. I nailed everything about this season for Penn (Foreman better than Woods, Woods' ORAT, a 130ish KenPom rating, Brodeur's All Ivy).

I just dramatically overestimated the power of the league. Hell if anything, I understated it because at the time, I didn't realize Princeton was a 200 KenPom team. It's wonderful to have been wrong about that.

That was a game for the ages. I can't say enough about this team.

I'm feeling real bad about Seth Towns. Hoping it's not the news I expect it's going to be.

And I love you Jeff, but when you miss the most important thing about the season then you can't say you nailed it.

PS - I'm trying to figure out anything Charlie said that was offensive. Or maybe has ever said.

PPS - Nice article, Kevin. And for all your articles all year - you're a must read.
