Penn women’s basketball easily handled Dartmouth in a 65-47 win at the Palestra. The Quakers lead comfortably for the majority of the game, leading to an expanded bench, particularly in the second half.

Rather than resting on their laurels, Penn came into this game with a fire, shutting the Big Green down early and holding onto the lead throughout in a game that stopped being close sometime in the second quarter.

 Now, the Quakers are set to host Dartmouth (12-7, 4-2 Ivy) on Friday and Harvard (13-6, 5-1 Ivy) on Saturday. Despite the team’s recent success, these matches should not be taken lightly.

Still, this is a monumental occasion, and many teams have already reconfigured their schedules to accommodate the ticker-tape parade on Thursday morning.

Stop me if you've heard this one before: for the seventh week this season, the Ivy League has recognized Penn women's basketball freshman center Eleah Parker as Rookie of the Week.

In this week's edition of Is Stat So?, Penn gymnastics flirts with perfection on beam, wrestling manages a come-from-behind win, and basketball continues to dominate.

The Quakers won twice this weekend by sticking to the gameplan that has worked so well for them in recent years: stingy defense and balanced offense. Penn dominated Brown, 88-55, on Friday, and dispatched Yale the next day, 69-54.
02/02/18 7:39pm
The Quakers (12-5, 3-1 Ivy) used a rapid start to coast the rest of the way, while the Bears (13-5, 1-4) couldn't break through Penn's press and 2-3 zone defense.
01/31/18 10:24pm
Now, the Quakers must extend those winning ways to New England, where they play Brown in Providence on Friday and then Yale in New Haven on Saturday.

The junior guard is the textbook definition of a hustle and grit player. She gives 100 percent effort on every single play and isn't afraid to sacrifice her body to get a teammate an extra look. In fact, she does it without hesitation several times each game.
01/29/18 8:54pm
Penn women’s basketball freshman center Eleah Parker’s newest addition to an already long list of weekly awards puts her in record breaking territory. Her latest Ivy League Rookie of the Week award – her sixth – marks the most since her frontcourt companion and senior Michelle Nwokedi earned six in 2014-2015.

In this week's edition of Is Stat So?, track and field continues to break school records, women's basketball dominated a completely overmatched Gwynedd Mercy, and gymnastics excelled on floor.

Behind the strong play of the junior guard, Penn women's basketball defeated Big 5 foe Temple on Wednesday before blowing out Gwynedd Mercy on Sunday. 
01/28/18 7:24pm
But the highlight of the game wasn’t the score differential, but rather Ross, the Quakers’ senior point guard, who broke the Penn women’s basketball assist record with a career total of 429 and counting.
01/24/18 8:48pm
In the final Big 5 matchup of the season, Penn women's basketball took down Temple, 74-59, to earn a share of the Big 5 title for the first time since 2014-2015.
01/23/18 11:20pm
Alongside her second straight co-Ivy League Player of the Week, Parker also won her fifth Ivy League Rookie of the Week and became just the second player ever to win more than one National Freshman of the Week awards.
01/23/18 9:34pm
Fresh off their last-second victory over Villanova last Wednesday, the Red and Blue (9-5, 2-1 Big 5) now turn their attention to Temple (9-9, 2-1). 
01/21/18 10:32pm
In this week's edition of Is Stat So?, more school and pool records fall, and Penn men's squash runs up against an opponent it cannot handle.
01/17/18 8:55pm
In a thriller, senior guard Anna Ross dictated exactly how the script would end: with the ball in her hands. It was her last-second bucket that proved the difference as Penn eked past Villanova 79-77.

It's not that Nwokedi's impact on each game has diminished. Rather, coach Mike McLaughlin and the team have needed her to play a new role this season. And, according to McLaughin, the changes in the past few weeks have been due to her growth in that new role.
