In today's college basketball landscape, there truly is no offseason. Coaches at all levels flock to AAU tournaments across the country throughout the summer to catch a glimpse of the premiere high school talent.

Now, a new set of freshmen are up to bat. While the class only has five players, it is replacing an even smaller group of seniors that boasted only one major contributor in Matt Howard.

As the 2016-17 school year nears its close, there have been some incredible Penn Athletics feats to reflect upon. But with so many Penn teams having such thorough success this year, there’s one natural question to ask — which one was best? DP Sports set out to find out.

It's been 60 years since Penn last hosted the East Regionals in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, when the Palestra saw March Madness played out under its roof for four straight years in 1954-57.

We started out the season trying to find our identity. While we had many of the same players, it was not the same team. We battled through some tough losses, but only to come out stronger. We were able to do that by focusing on one possession at a time. We took that mentality through to the end of the season.

Penn women's basketball may have ended its season almost a month ago, but the awards haven't stopped coming in, recognizing the team's standout season. Junior forward Michelle Nwokedi was just named a member of the All-Big 5 First-Team of the season, while senior center Sydney Stipanovich picked up a Second-Team honor herself.

There are 35 international student-athletes at Penn with 19 different countries represented, ranging from Hong Kong to Egypt to French Guiana. We wanted to highlight some of the athletes that best exemplify the character international students give to the university. These are their stories.

We go to Penn, where people don't remember, and probably never knew, the name of the player who screwed up in the game a few days ago. They probably don't know there was one big mistake that had a huge impact on the game at all. Most of them don't know the game was lost, or even played.

It doesn’t get worse than this. There’s no sugarcoating what we just saw; Penn women’s basketball choked. And as much as it pains me to say it both as a journalist and a fan, that’s the evidence that coach Mike McLaughlin’s program isn’t quite at the next level yet.

They’ve been here before. In fact, this is their third trip to the NCAA Tournament in four years. But a first NCAA Tournament win in program history still eludes the women of Penn basketball. The Quakers will be hoping that the third time is the charm when they tip off against Texas A&M in the first round of March Madness on Saturday night in Los Angeles.

By all accounts, the first-ever Ivy League basketball tournament was a grand success, thanks in large part to the event's host, the Palestra.

Without a doubt, the inaugural Ivy League tournament was a success by any definition of the word. But was it the best move for the league to make? Ultimately, I’m still skeptical.

Penn's victories this weekend showcased some of the best this team has to offer: great ball movement on offense and stingy defense that forces teams to make tough shots and Michelle Nwokedi dominating on both sides of the ball. But even still, there are plenty of questions left for this team as they approach the NCAA Tournament.

Ivy League regular season championship? Check. Ivy League Tournament championship? Check that, too.
