The fall season was certainly a disappointing one for Penn Athletics, but the women's basketball team's Ivy League championship banner-raising ceremony on Wednesday night reminded Quakers fans of better times while stirring optimism for the future of the Red and Blue.
In a game that started with the raising of the Quakers’ 2013-14 championship banner, Penn took control from the get-go, stifling La Salle in a 57-29 victory.
Raising a championship banner. The first home game of the season. The first matchup of Big Five basketball at the Palestra this year.
There are plenty of reasons for Penn women’s basketball to be excited about their matchup against La Salle on Wednesday.
“You’ve got three big, important things in one night, and it should be really special for [the team],” coach Mike McLaughlin said.
Penn (0-1) enters the game following a trip down to Knoxville to face off against No.
