Not only were Penn’s classes pushed online, students required to leave campus, and in-person graduation canceled, but our frisbee season was cut short — an abrupt and far-too-early end to the seniors’ tenure as college ultimate players.

Senior forward AJ Brodeur has been a consistent presence on the court from the moment he stepped into the Palestra almost four years ago.

It’s never smart to make these kinds of predictions too early, but Penn men’s basketball has shown enough.

The last 48 hours have shown a lot about this Penn team. The Quakers have proved that they have grit.

Even after a close win over Big 5 rival Temple, the Quakers knew that they had to show up for conference play, and they did Friday night against Harvard.
