Penn women’s basketball has not reached March Madness since 2017. If the Quakers wish to end the drought, they will have to overcome a number of difficult teams that stand in their way this season.

In the regular season, he posted a team-high 55 wins, for a .611 winning percentage, while fencing in 30 of 33 matches.
