For Penn to remain competitive this season in the Ivy League, someone is going to have to step up as an effective defensive presence on the perimeter.
11/30/13 7:40pm
We run through what was good, bad and ugly about the Quakers’ loss at Lafayette Saturday.
11/30/13 4:25pm
The Quakers ultimately ran out of gas Saturday, relinquishing a second-half nine-point lead and falling to the Leopards, 79-76.
11/29/13 7:09pm
We caught up with the Leopards’ head coach, who in 1995 inherited a program coming off a 2-25 season and led Lafayette to back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances in 1999 and 2000.
11/29/13 6:39pm
With Penn basketball set to square off with Lafayette on the road Saturday, we look back at the top five Penn-Lafayette showdowns of all time.
11/26/13 10:57pm
The Quakers posted one of their most convincing victories in Allen’s four-plus seasons here thanks to a defense that suddenly wouldn’t quit.
11/26/13 9:09pm
Sophomore Tony Hicks went for 33 points on 12-for-20 shooting, allowing the Quakers to cruise to victory. Penn defeated Niagara, 85-66.
11/26/13 12:56am
We analyze what’s up and what’s down for Penn basketball as prepares for Niagara.

Yes, Antoine Mason is the son of Anthony Mason. That’s THE Anthony Mason, the NBA All-Star who relished doing the dirty work and never ran away from a fight. But now, as the leading scorer in the NCAA, Antoine’s doing things his father never did.
11/25/13 9:51pm
Tuesday night, Niagara (1-4) will come to the Palestra to face the Red and Blue (1-3), boasting explosive guard Antoine Mason and his impressive 31.2 points per game clip.
11/24/13 8:44pm
My first taste of covering Penn basketball came in the 2011-12 home opener against Temple. The Palestra was packed and rocking, and Zack Rosen’s 27 points and seven (!) three-pointers almost led Penn to the monumental upset.
11/23/13 1:27am
Unfortunately, just four games into the 2013-14 campaign, it’s becoming painfully clear that Penn has no player worthy of being called adaptable.
11/22/13 8:03pm
Similar to the team’s previous two losses to Temple and Penn State, Penn (1-3) created a first-half deficit that was too difficult to overcome, and the Quakers fell to No. 25 Iowa, 86-55.
11/21/13 7:12pm
While Friday’s matchup with Iowa (4-0) marks the Quakers’ (1-2) second consecutive contest with a Big Ten opponent, very few nonconference matchups are this unique.
11/21/13 2:48am
With a soft stretch of schedule coming up soon, it is time for the frustration from Penn’s press conferences to turn into energy and results on the floor.
11/21/13 1:03am
With the exception of Harvard, Ivy men’s hoops squads faced limited success, as many units faced vastly superior opponents.
11/19/13 12:20am
We analyze what’s up and what’s down for Penn basketball as it heads into Iowa.
11/18/13 12:35am
We caught up with Rich Hofmann, a 1980 Penn grad who joined the Daily News out of college and – as you’ll read – never left.
11/17/13 11:58pm
We look at the numbers that factored most in Penn’s 83-71 loss to Penn State Saturday.
11/16/13 7:39pm
Why did Penn look so flat-footed and ill-prepared at the defensive end in the first half? Did it come down to strategy or motivation, head or heart? If you ask Fran Dougherty, it’s the latter.
