It was uneventful, but it was a win. Friday night at the Palestra, Penn women’s basketball moved one game closer to a potential Ivy League championship with a 65-50 win over Dartmouth.

It was the three that carried the Red and Blue on the night — they went 8-for-16 from beyond the arc as Whitlatch sank four of six and guards Anna Ross and Kasey Chambers each added a pair. “I thought Kasey’s three up top was big,” Penn coach Mike McLaughlin said.
