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.

The Quakers cap their season with their perennial foe, Princeton, who eliminated them from Ivy Madness in the semifinals last season. Here are five of the biggest games to watch out for as the Quakers chase the Ivy League Championship.
