NEW HAVEN, Conn. — As senior guard Kayla Padilla warmed up for Penn women’s basketball’s Friday night clash with Yale, the expectations were clear. The expectation to win the team's third straight game. The expectation to follow up her Ivy League Player of the Week award with another remarkable game. A team to lead, a standard to uphold.

Penn men's basketball will arrive at the Palestra on Saturday with what may prove to be the turning point of their season ahead of them. The Quakers currently stand at 2-4, and have not won a game in conference play since Jan. 7. Even though they currently stand seventh in the Ivy League table, there is a four-way logjam ahead of them at 3-3. A win would put Penn in striking distance of the all-important top four, while a loss would drop the Quakers to 2-5 in-conference and make the second half of the Ivy season that much more difficult.
When Penn women’s basketball made the trip to Princeton, N.J. on Monday, the team had the chance to make a statement. To prove its mettle. To extend its historic win streak, and to show that the Ivy League had a new top dog.
The tale of David vs. Goliath tells of an outmatched, outgunned challenger taking on a far superior opponent and earning a miraculous victory. For the Hartford Hawks, there was no such miracle.

Coming off two Big 5 losses, Penn men's basketball will have a shot at winning not only its first Big 5 game of the season, but its first since January 2020. The catch: Penn will be matching up against a Villanova team that, coming into the season, was ranked No. 16 in the NCAA. So far, though, Villanova's started the season out 3-5 and have already lost to a Big 5 team, Temple.
When the La Salle Explorers made their voyage to the Palestra on Saturday afternoon, they discovered an unstoppable force by the name of Jordan Dingle. But in a back-and-forth thriller, Penn’s men’s basketball could not muster enough support for its superstar to send the Explorers home with a defeat.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times — it was a tale of two weeks for Penn’s basketball programs, with the men’s team finishing with a spotless 4-0 record and a victory in the Cathedral Classic, and the women’s team losing two tough matchups on its West Coast road trip. But even in a time of darkness, there are always highlights. Let’s take a look at the top three most exciting plays from the last week.
The city of Philadelphia operates on Eastern Standard Time, three hours earlier than San Francisco’s Pacific Standard Time. But as the team traveled to the Golden City, it was Penn’s women’s basketball who fell behind.
With two games left on the season, Penn football controls its own destiny for at least a share of the Ivy League title. After a 3-7 record last year, a conference championship would be the ultimate turnaround for the Red and Blue, but first, they'll have to make it through Harvard, a 5-2 squad that poses a dangerous threat.
NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — A season ago, the Iona Gaels were a perfect 13-0 at their home arena, the crackling Hynes Athletic Center. On Monday night, Penn became the latest victim of their tenacious home court environment.
Penn football is seeing red this weekend – in more ways than one. The Quakers face off against the Big Red, a team with a 1-3 Ivy League record this season, and they'll likely be fired up after last week's upset loss at Brown.
