NEW HAVEN, C.T. — It has been a cold night for the Quakers so far.

Penn men’s basketball trails Yale, 34-29, after 20 minutes of play. For Penn, it has been guards Antonio Woods and Devon Goodman leading the way with 11 and eight points, respectively. Just as in Friday night’s victory over Brown, the Quakers (14-7, 2-3 Ivy) have taken their fair share of threes, but only 4 of 20 have fallen thus far.

It has been a back-and-forth affair. Penn jumped out to a 14-10 lead after eight minutes of action, but Yale (14-4, 4-1) was able to get out and run and took an 18-16 lead after senior guard Alex Copeland’s fadeaway jumper.

After trailing by two with 6:56 remaining, the Bulldogs went on an 11-2 run to take a 33-26 lead. To end the run, Antonio Woods quieted the home crowd with an and-one layup at the 1:10 mark. 

While not shooting well, the Red and Blue have crashed the offensive glass, with 12 of their points coming from second chance opportunities. In total, the team has nabbed 10 offensive boards thus far.

On the other side, junior guard Miye Oni has put on a show for the Elis, dropping 13 points, several of which have come in transition. As a team, Yale has been successful on fast break, as 15 of its points have resulted from there.
