It was a strange moment. As I walked into the press room at the University of Maryland, I came across a fellow reporter quickly putting on his tie and grabbing his belongings to head down to press row. “The tip was moved up to 3:43.” Now, a full day removed from the game and that moment it’s strange to look back.

Penn women’s basketball clinched its second Ivy title in three years with its win over Princeton Tuesday night. And the ride isn’t over yet.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. This was supposed to be the year in which Penn women’s basketball broke what has become the standard in the Ivy League.

Over the weekend, students from across the Ivy League gathered on Penn’s campus to participate in panel discussions and workshops as part of the Unmasking the Ivy League Conference.

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.

When I, a freshman associate sports editor, was asked to pack my bags and travel to New Hampshire to cover the presidential primary, I was taken aback.

Penn basketball was handed 23- and 6-point losses by Yale and Brown this weekend. And I was still excited by what I saw.

Vince Lombardi once said, “Winning isn’t everything. It’s the only thing.” But I have to disagree with the football legend on this one — at least in the context of Penn basketball. On Tuesday night, Penn women’s basketball lost to Villanova, 66-46, in what undoubtedly was its worst performance of an otherwise stellar season.

"Don't mistake activity for achievement." There are quite a few John Wooden-isms that I have come across throughout my life, but few have spoken to me quite as loudly as that one.

For me, it’s a no-brainer. The Ivy League needs a conference tournament for basketball. When you look at Ivy Athletics as a whole, there’s something left to be desired for those students who are fans of NCAA athletics as a whole.

On Wednesday night, Penn men’s basketball was beaten by a much better team. The Red and Blue were routed by Saint Joseph’s, a well-oiled juggernaut of a squad that sits as the nation’s 30th-best team by RPI.

Their names might not be in the paper or in the record books, but their contributions to this school are no less mighty.

A dialogue about football’s future is brewing as we speak. Why shouldn’t the Ivy League take a part in leading that discussion?

Not only am I from the Lone Star State, but I may have a slight obsession with the place I call home.

Philadelphia is known for a lot of things.

For all of their accomplishments this year, and they were many – earning a share of the Ivy title, finishing the season on a six-game winning streak, garnering 11 All-Ivy award winners – Penn football was not the most successful team on campus this year. Not even close.

When it comes to men's basketball, the Ivy League is unique, but it looks like that's about to change. And it's about time.

When I went home for Thanksgiving break a few weeks ago, I engaged in all of the holiday-season small-talk with family that one might expect. Yes, I was enjoying life at school.

When Penn football marched on to the field in Bethlehem Pennsylvania on Sept. 19th, it did not resemble Ray Priore’s team that was crowned Ivy League champions on Saturday.
