In a thriller, senior guard Anna Ross dictated exactly how the script would end: with the ball in her hands. It was her last-second bucket that proved the difference as Penn eked past Villanova 79-77.

Just a week after freshman Andrew Douglas’ comeback win to beat No. 6 Rochester, Penn needed another ninth game win to beat Yale 5-4. Meanwhile, Penn’s women fell to the Elis by the same score. Against Brown on Sunday, both teams eliminated any chance for a dramatic ending by sweeping the Bears 9-0.

The Quakers started off a little slow, but outplayed Columbia for the final 35 minutes of the game en route to a largely comfortable 70-51 win. The night before, The Red and Blue took down Cornell by a score of 68-48 to sweep the New York Ivies. Against the Lions, Penn (8-5, 2-1 Ivy) was led once again by another dominant performance from freshman Eleah Parker who set a new career high with 22 points.

From the opening tip — which Penn won and led to senior Lauren Whitlatch’s first three — the Quakers dominated Cornell physically all over the court on the way to a 68-48 win.

Penn men’s basketball has me convinced. They are legitimate, serious contenders for an Ivy title this year. If last year’s team could make the tournament at 6-8, this year’s edition should have no problem getting in with two or three losses.

The much anticipated – and once delayed – Ivy League season opener stalled out the gate as neither team seemed able to land a punch: the first points came almost three minutes into the game. Once that was out of the way, the two archrivals treated those in attendance with one of the most exciting regular season games in recent memory: a 76-70 Penn win over defending conference champion Princeton.

Just a few days after former teammate Alek Torgersen signed with the Detroit Lions practice squad, tight end Ryan O’Malley has been added to an active roster. The 2016 graduate was a captain and two-time All-Ivy honoree with the Quakers, and scored a total of nine touchdowns in his 40 career games.

The win captured the NJIT Highlanders Christmas Tournament for the Quakers (6-4), who outscored opponents 159-90 across the two-game competition. Both games set new season records for margin of victory, and Parker earned tournament MVP honors.

After earning his first Ivy League Player of the Week award of the season two weeks ago by putting in a 55-minute effort at Monmouth, the sophomore guard won his second this week after totaling 41 points across three games.

After playing the most minutes of any men’s basketball team in the country in November, the schedule quiets down considerably in December. After dispatching Dayton at their home court on Saturday, the Quakers won’t return to action until December 27. That is a gap of 17 days without a game.

In the last game before a two-week break, Penn men’s basketball overpowered Dayton on the road in an emphatic 78-70 win. The Quakers (8-4) outshot the Flyers (4-5) from every area of the court, most notably from beyond the arc.

Most major basketball programs play somewhere between 28 and 31 games. Historically, Penn and the rest of the Ivy League play fewer to allow the players time off for winter break and finals. This year, Penn will play 30 games, which means they have to fit the same amount of games as major programs in a smaller amount of time. The result: a packed first month before the break.

Betley's 71 points over four games were more than any other Quaker and enough to earn him DP Sports' Player of the Week. The guard has been a go-to scorer for Penn in tough situations, especially when opponents focus on classmate AJ Brodeur.

Seniors Anna Ross, Michelle Nwokedi and Lauren Whitlatch all hit double figures, but the Quakers fell to Binghamton, 77-72, in their season opener.

Sometimes the bunnies just don’t bounce your way. In a game as tight as Penn men’s basketball’s 75-71 double-overtime loss to La Salle, one bounce the Quakers’ way would have won them the game.

On Saturday, Penn men’s basketball team will open the season on the road at Fairfield University before returning to the Palestra for Monday's meeting with Big 5 foe La Salle.

It turns out that the insanely tall guy you stared at the other day saw you looking, and for the record, he wants you to know that he’s 7-foot-3.

Wancowicz has been a rock for Penn men’s soccer since patriarch and coach Rudy Fuller welcomed him to the team. The senior captain has started nearly every game for which he has been healthy in his four years, providing much needed stability and consistency to the back four.

Priore has shied away from calling Penn's situation a quarterback controversy. He insisted instead that it was merely a quarterback competition. Now there is no doubt.

Penn football struggled for all but 10 glorious minutes against Central Connecticut State (CCSU) in a 42-21 loss. Injuries and sloppy play made it hard for the Quakers (2-2, 0-1 Ivy) to get anything going.
