After a dominant Ivy League campaign, nobody should be surprised that Penn women's basketball scored big when Ivy League year-end awards were announced. Junior forward Michelle Nwokedi (Ivy League Player of the Year and First Team All-Ivy), senior center Sydney Stipanovich and junior guard Anna Ross (Second Team All-Ivy) and coach Mike McLaughlin (Ivy League Coach of the Year) were big winners when the awards were handed out on Thursday, just as they have been all season with the 13-1 Quakers, who enter the Ivy League Tournament as the top seed.

The Quakers will open their 2017 season with an action-packed trip down to the Sunshine State. This will be the team’s first chance to generate some positive momentum after a disappointing 2016. More importantly, it will be a major measuring stick for the team and a precious opportunity to gauge the makeup of the team before the games start to count in the Ivy League standings.

After a tough loss, all you can do is get back on your horse. Or Heelys. Or whatever the Quakers are using these days for their latest transportation shenanigans. Penn women's basketball will play host to Cornell and Columbia this weekend at the Palestra, looking to get back in rhythm after suffering its first Ivy League loss against Yale last week.

This weekend, a number of winter sports teams wrap up their seasons with Ivy League championships. While women's swimming and men's squash finished up last week, their opposite-gender counterparts along with gymnastics and indoor track and field all compete this weekend for postseason glory.

Around Penn Athletics, there will be no shortage of high-octane matchups across the board this weekend. All in all, seven Penn teams will be in regular season action over the next three days, with the majority of them getting deep into the crucial stretch of conference play. With such an action-packed weekend ahead, our sports editors head to the roundtable to debate: which Penn team is under the most pressure to perform this weekend?

The calendar has turned to February, and it's conference play the rest of the way for Penn women's basketball. But that might not go quite as smoothly as the defending champs would hope.

Penn women's basketball, playing far better of late, will look for far better results in its second Big 5 contest. The Quakers (3-3) will be at home on Wednesday night to take on La Salle (4-4) for some midweek action at the Palestra.

PHILADELPHIA — Penn basketball fought hard after falling behind big early, but fell short in a 70-62 loss against a superior Temple team on Saturday at the Liacouras Center. After falling behind 21-4 early in the game, the Red and Blue (2-4) rallied and had it within two points in the game's final minute, but were unable to complete the comeback against the Owls (6-2).

Penn volleyball's season came to an end on Saturday, but it really seemed like the Quakers were just getting set to head on vacation. It's hard to view a 3-2 loss to Cornell (12-12, 6-8 Ivy) in the season finale as the end for this 2016 Penn team (10-16, 5-9), because the entire 2016 Penn team will be back for 2017.

It's easy to feel like Penn football is an obvious favorite to beat Princeton this Saturday and (eventually) win another Ivy League title. It's hard to argue with ten straight Ivy wins (which I'm about to do).

Penn volleyball may be a young team, but they've seen all they need to see.

On Friday night, Penn (8-11, 3-4 Ivy) will head to New Jersey to take on rival Princeton in their lone game this weekend.
