Llewellyn’s 2-17 was the worst Princeton shooting performance in at least a decade:

Very curious to see how he bounces back.

I expect him to put up even bigger numbers - maybe 2-27 instead.

I fully expect him to shoot better and see him as the wildcard, but hopefully Penn can continue to defend him well.

Princeton has won 16 of the last 20 meetings.

Betting line has drifted down to Pennsylvania -6.

Get real. In the history of D1 college basketball no one has gone 2-27.

Ha, finally someone took the bait. Well, he’s got on 0-for going so far. Maybe a cumulative 2-27?

Started 3-20 and somehow we're tied! I'll take it. Penn obviously needs this more, having lost the first one, but I'm glad we're still battling after that Joe Scott-esque start.

Hope Morales is alright...he's already wearing a shoulder brace and he hit it on the way down from a great layup.

Extremely slow start but at least the Tigers counter punched when down by 10 points similar to last game. Let's see if they can another shot or two in the second half.

Typical rival game -- wrestling match/slug fest. Some people were expecting something different. Why?

Can someone explain to the Penn announcer what "probative" means?

Great win! Really proud of the guys' effort. Just like the first game, it was a gritty, ugly defensive affair where both teams were gassed. In the end, AririGODzoh and Cannady's 90% FT shooting made the difference.

How good is this team gonna be when Jaelin starts shooting 40%? To his credit, just 1 TO against the aggressive Penn defense. Anyone who saw our early non-conf knows how awful our ballhandling was before him.

Yeah, that guy was awful, makes me appreciate how good Noah Savage is!

Always good to win at the Palestra, great game defensively by the Tigers. They rarely let Penn have open looks and rebounded aggressively. Offense was ugly, very few shots in rhythm and mostly isolations with few assists. Aririguzoh and Stephens were warriors. After the last game it seemed like it would be difficult to win with Cannady and Llewellyn not shooting well. But that happened again and Much and Desrosiers did not pick up the slack. But FTs made the difference again.

Myles looked like the Stephens of old down the stretch -- our tough shot maker. His defense and rebounding has remained top-notch, but hopefully he gets his offense going now too.

Mitch has always contended that the IL regular season is primarily decided by seniors. Fortunately, the Tigers have Cannady and Stephens plus they have a junior C who has played better than Penn's best player over the past two games plus he is improving over time. It will be interesting to see him square off against Lewis and Bruner = brutal upcoming challenges.

As to the Quakerites guaranteeing victory in a rivalry game -- Simply Brilliant.

Finally, normalcy has returned to Mother Earth with the sweep of the Mighty Quakerites.

Certainly didn’t expect this outcome. Has Penn collapsed or did we bring them down? Although JL is in an offensive funk he still doesn’t throw the ball away. DC will come around with his threes. I’m guessing when one does they both will. Until then MS,RA and JD/SM along with a burst of Morales energy will get us through. Make the best of a long rest!

Great win, running against the usual formula. Who would have expected that kind of rebounding advantage, including on the offensive end? It was like a Sydney Johnson game.

Penn missed some shots they could have made (goes double for the Tigers), but there was excellent defense played against the Quakers' limited scoring options. I've now watched Wang a few times, and he's seemed pretty easy to guard and a bit of a defensive liability. Aririguzoh was tremendous guarding Brodeur and then taking it to him on the offensive end. Stephens was a man. And DC3 overcame his poor shooting with a good overall game and the return of his deadly FT accuracy.

Once again, Morales was clearly better than Llewelyn on both ends. Llewelyn again got himself into situations where he had nowhere to go and forced shots up into prepared shot blockers. But the guy is a really, really good dribbler and he did make a couple of good defensive plays. Very glad that Morales was able to tough out that painful shoulder re-injury and come back into the game.

The word that comes to mind in these last two games is "toughness." Not letting blown layups and missed open treys affect the defensive intensity, staying in front of guys, winning the rebounds and loose balls, and not getting pushed off one's spot very easily.
