The Penn men's basketball team will open its 2001-02 campaign in Atlanta Monday night, looking for its first season-opening win since 1997.

Quakers coach Fran Dunphy likes to schedule elite non-conference opponents for the Red and Blue, and this season is no different. Penn will face Georgia Tech (1-0) at the Alexander Memorial Coliseum, kicking off a difficult week that includes a Thanksgiving Day contest in Las Vegas with No. 2 Illinois.

Because of an injury to Adam Chubb - Penn's top returning big man who is expected to be out until mid-to-late December - Penn coach Fran Dunphy may go with a three-guard lineup tonight. The probable starters are Toole, freshman Tim Begley and sophomore Jeff Schiffner in the backcourt with Onyekwe and Archibong up front.
