They say there’s no “I” in team; all players are created equal. But Penn men’s basketball will be soon be reminded that some players are more equal than others, as the Quakers will take on four of the conference’s top players when Cornell and Columbia visit the Palestra this weekend. The Red and Blue will first square off with the Cornell (9-15, 2-8) on Friday night.

Penn isn’t going to win the Ivy title. It was fairly apparent from before the season even started, and halfway through the Ivy slate it’s even more apparent.

ITHACA, N.Y. — Steve Donahue went back to Newman Arena on Saturday and walked away with another win — this time for a different team.

There’s nothing quite like catching up with old friends. This weekend, Penn basketball coach Steve Donahue will face off against Cornell — a team he coached for a decade — part of a back-to-back road set also featuring a trip to Columbia, which will be the Quakers’ third Ivy weekend of the season.

The mystique of Philadelphia college basketball has been well-documented – with the Palestra being named the nation’s most “Hallowed Hall” in a December 2014 NCAA.com feature – and that allure makes it quite difficult for local figures to stay away. For Penn men’s basketball, consider Joe Mihalich Jr. the latest victim.

Penn basketball, playing with newfound confidence, continued to move in the right direction by recording its second straight Ivy League win in a 67-57 thrashing of Harvard.
