Penn basketball ugly stats: Part III

Another week, another pair of losses for Penn basketball. While these games were undeniably improvements from the double-digit defeats to Yale and Brown two weeks ago, they still provided a few ugly statistics that aren't for those with weak constitutions. Without further ado, here's the summary from yesterday.

  • For just the 2nd time in program history, Penn basketball has been swept in three Ivy doubleheaders in one season. The 1st time was last year.
  • Penn basketball has lost seven straight Ivy games, the worst streak in program history. Penn lost six straight to end 1956-57.
  • This is Penn basketball's worst ever start to Ivy play. The Quakers have never won fewer than three Ivy games in a season.
  • Penn basketball has lost four straight games to Brown. Before this year, Penn had never lost more than two straight to Brown.
  • Prior to 2010, Penn basketball had never finished under .500 in Ivy play in consecutive seasons. It has now happened twice.
  • Penn has been swept by Yale and Brown in consecutive seasons. Penn hadn't been swept by travel partners in two consecutive seasons ever.
