Sophomore guard Jordan Dingle played a crucial role in the Quakers' 76-68 win over the weekend against the Yale Bulldogs. Over the course of this entire season, Dingle has continued to grow into his crucial role for the Red and Blue on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.

Penn men’s basketball entered the game with high stakes, as they looked to assert themselves at the top of the Ivy League. Dingle came up big — especially in the second half — dropping 31 points in his 33 minutes of game action to help propel the Quakers to the win. The Valley Stream, N.Y. native came up with 18 points in the last 20 minutes of play. 

Penn men’s basketball will next be in action on Friday, January 28 at Harvard at 5:00 p.m. 

Honorable Mention: Freshman Ryan Miller of wrestling had a huge upset of Columbia wrestler Joe Manchio by a score of 4-2. The Quakers won their dual meet by a 32-3 margin over the weekend.
