Harvard (11-6, 3-1 Ivy) has perennially been one of the toughest outs in the Ivy League, and with point guard Syani Chambers back after missing last season with an injury, they are firing on all cylinders again.

Around Penn Athletics, there will be no shortage of high-octane matchups across the board this weekend. All in all, seven Penn teams will be in regular season action over the next three days, with the majority of them getting deep into the crucial stretch of conference play. With such an action-packed weekend ahead, our sports editors head to the roundtable to debate: which Penn team is under the most pressure to perform this weekend?

February 7 is far and away the most important day of the Penn men’s basketball season. For the first time since 2012, Penn's students will be on campus to witness one of the most historic rivalries in college basketball when the Quakers take on the Princeton Tigers at home.

The freshman's game against La Salle wasn't just one of the best performances in the Ivy League last week. Brodeur scored more points in one game — 35, to be exact — than any other men's basketball player for Penn in the past 20 years. Despite his rookie label, the forward was quick to play down his inexperience.

As we get deeper into the second semester, we’ve started to get a firm grasp on the true makeup of Penn’s winter sports teams. Though there unquestionably is still time for certain teams to flip the script, we’ve already seen enough from most squads to judge whether they’re contenders or pretenders at this point. With that said, our sports editors take to the roundtable to debate: which Penn winter team has exceeded expectations the most so far:

This was a special performance. Brodeur started off the game hot with 14 first half points, but it only got better from there. Simply put, Brodeur dominated down the stretch. He finished the game with a career-high 35 points, including 13 in a row for the Quakers at one point, and also scored the biggest points of the game with two big free throws to put Penn up three with just two seconds left. Brodeur’s 35 are the most in a game for Penn since 1995.

Wednesday evening, Penn men’s basketball made the most of its last matchup against a Big 5 foe, outpacing La Salle, 77-74, on the road.

Losers of four straight, Penn men's basketball knows that as the losses pile up, so does its chances of earning a spot in this year’s inaugural Ivy League Tournament. But not to worry — the Red and Blue travel across town to La Salle Wednesday night with one last chance to iron out the wrinkles before resuming conference play in February.

Needless to say, the local lack of success for Penn basketball has been disappointing, particularly so for a women's team that won the Big 5 as recently as 2015. With these struggles in mind, our sports editors take to the roundtable to debate: Does the Big 5 still matter to Penn basketball?

“There’s no such thing as freshmen anymore.” Regardless of their distinction, his point is clear: Fifteen games into the season, it's high time for this skilled Penn men's basketball class to lose the softening nomenclature.

Penn men’s basketball was never out of the fight against St. Joseph’s. The players lasted the full twelve rounds.
01/21/17 11:02pm
The Red and Blue couldn’t escape an early 15-point deficit Friday, staging a furious comeback before coming up short to St. Joseph’s in a 78-71 loss at the Palestra. With the defeat, the Quakers’ remain winless in the season’s most important games, as they are a combined 0-6 in Big 5 and Ivy League play.
01/18/17 11:09pm
One item of note is that Saturday night’s game at the Palestra actually counts as an away game for the Red and Blue, while the Hawks play the role of hosts. It’s unclear yet whether that will have any real impact, but because of the cross-city rivalry, both sides will surely have crowds there to neutralize any home court advantage for either side.

A tumultuous January for Penn men’s basketball continues with your classic “good news-bad news” situation. The good news: star guard Antonio Woods has been reinstated to the school and will be able to help the Penn basketball program once again. The bad news: he won’t be taking the floor until next season.

Penn men's basketball coach Steve Donahue is not one to overreact. But after losing both legs of a weekend doubleheader, things are going from bad to worse for the Quakers in conference play.

Penn men's basketball coach Steve Donahue is not one to overreact. But after losing both legs of a weekend doubleheader, things are going from bad to worse for the Quakers (6-8, 0-3 Ivy) in conference play.

Penn men’s basketball had their moments, but never looked truly capable of taking down Ivy foes Yale in their 68-60 loss on Friday night.
01/13/17 10:47pm
The Red and Blue never led in the game, and it was defense that kept them in the contest early. However, as the game wore on, the lack of offense and second-chance points doomed any hopes of a Penn comeback.
01/11/17 9:11pm
In a heartbreaking loss at Ivy League favorite Princeton on Saturday, Penn men’s basketball proved that it could compete with the league’s finest. The next step for coach Steve Donahue’s squad? Showing it can beat the best.

While most of us were off relaxing over winter break, Penn sports teams were busy at work. Our editors debate: Which team had the best winter break?
