The agony of defeat

(04/30/06 10:35pm)

The big game on campus today -- the only game, in fact -- was the Penn tennis team's playoff match against Brown to determine which of the Ivy League's co-champions would get an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament. Though it took place in the relatively out-of-the-way Levy Tennis Pavilion (which is actually quite a nice venue, if you've never been), there was plenty of buzz in the building.

I admit that I'm not the RPI guru that David is, but I will be paying close attention to the Atlantic 10 Tournament when it gets underway Wednesday at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. Four of Penn's opponents from this season are participating, including three of the Quakers' Big 5 rivals. If they advance, that could have a slight effect on Penn's RPI, or at least how the selection committee sees Penn's non-conference strength of schedule. There's also a chance that another A-10 team, George Washington, could line up against the Red and Blue in the NCAA Tournament.

That was the statement on the question of streamers from the Big 5 this evening at the truly extraordinary Big 5 50th Anniversary banquet. More to come on the night's festvities later from myself and Zachary Levine, but in the short term, the big news is that there will more than likely be streamers for throwing after each team's first basket at the Penn-St. Joe's game.
