Donahue has his team in exactly the right mindset. Penn fans learned last year how quickly a season can turn around. The first six games are important, but not as much as the next eight, or the two after that.
The rematch everyone had their eyes on lived up to the excitement for Quaker fans, as Penn eased its way to a 82-65 win over the Tigers.
A win against the Tigers would not only give Penn a sweep over its rival, but would also solidify the Red and Blue's standing atop the Ivy League. Ahead of the big game, three DP sportswriters made their cases for the biggest keys to a Quaker victory.

Wait...seriously? Princeton’s biggest game to date is a home matchup with the Quakers? Talk about a bit of a buzzkill.
Dear Princetonian children, little brothers, and the editors of what apparently passes for a paper: Well, well, well, how the turn tables.

The upcoming game at Princeton on Tuesday will answer the questions as to whether or not Penn has solidified its unique identity and can take the next step from good to great, but what people can’t put into question as of right now is the Quakers’ surprising dominance across the board.
For the second straight night, Penn took care of business at the Palestra, marching to a 59-50 win over Yale.

The Quakers (12-6, 0-3 Big 5) have gone winless in the famed Philadelphia circuit, dropping their first three contests to Villanova, La Salle, and Temple. On Saturday, the Red and Blue will get one final chance to avoid a Big 5 shutout when they host crosstown rival St. Joseph’s (9-9, 0-2).
A major part of the Big 5's special nature is the unparalleled relationships that the different coaches in the conference have with one another. These relationships, based on mutual respect, competitiveness, and shared experiences, create one of the most remarkable coaching fellowships in the country.
