I was standing in the bathroom of my house on campus, brushing my teeth after a late night of working on the sports section of the Daily Pennsylvanian.

DURHAM, N.C. — Throwing them right into the fire. It’s an interesting strategy. It’s also been a hallmark of Penn women’s basketball coach Mike McLaughlin’s tenure.

Coming off of a late-inning loss to Villanova on Wednesday, Penn baseball will look to rebound in their first Ivy action of the year. Penn (7-11) will open up Ivy play by hosting Brown and Yale for a pair of weekend doubleheaders at Meiklejohn Stadium.

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 is having deja vu all over again. Two years ago, the Quakers beat Princeton on the road to clinch the Ivy League title and then traveled to College Park, Md., to face Texas.

With 21:16 to play in the second half, senior attacker Iris Williamson fired in a free position shot — her fourth goal of the game — to bring Penn’s deficit down to just one, 7-6. However, that would be the closest No. 13 Penn women’s lacrosse would get down the stretch against No. 10 Duke as the Blue Devils closed the game on a 5-0 run to cap off a 12-6 win.

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.
02/13/16 10:01pm
In the first-year Penn coach’s return to Cornell, where he coached for a decade, Penn defeated Cornell, 92-84, to give Donahue his first win against his former program.
01/31/16 11:30pm
Dominant. There aren’t too many better words to describe Penn women’s basketball’s weekend.
01/26/16 1:42am
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.
01/19/16 1:06am
It isn’t always pretty. Coming off of a big win over Princeton last weekend, the Quakers came out flat against La Salle before fighting off a late comeback en route to a 78-68 win on Martin Luther King Day.
12/28/15 9:03pm
Against No. 17 Villanova, Penn was overwhelmed in the first half of a 77-57 loss and never fully recovered.
12/08/15 12:26am
Philadelphia is known for a lot of things.
12/01/15 9:45pm
Awards season isn’t quite over for Penn football. A week after coach Ray Priore was named Ivy League Coach of the Year, two Penn players — senior linebacker Tyler Drake and sophomore wide receiver Justin Watson — have been announced as two of the four finalists for the Asa S.
11/29/15 11:43pm
With Colorado State down 49-48 and eight seconds remaining, Ellen Nystrom drove for a pull-up jumper over Penn’s Sydney Stipanovich. But the ball hit front iron and landed safely in the hands of sophomore Beth Brzozowski, securing a fourth straight win for Penn women’s basketball.
11/21/15 4:00pm
After being picked to finish sixth in the Ivy preseason media poll, Penn football finished its season with a 34-21 win over Cornell to claim a share of its 17th Ivy League title.
11/15/15 11:30pm
As the third quarter opened, Lauren Whitlatch caught fire.
11/13/15 10:02pm
Three and D was the name of the game for Penn. But on a night where the shots didn’t fall for the Quakers, a healthy diet of three-pointers wasn’t enough to knock off No. 14 Duke at the Palestra, as the Quakers fell, 57 – 50.
11/10/15 10:21pm
In college athletics, change is inevitable. After graduating the team’s two best shooters, Penn women’s basketball’s offense now runs through the post.

Statistics have always been an integral part of sports.

Midway through Penn Athletics’ spring season, an intriguing combination of players have left an indelible mark on their respective teams’ successes in 2015. In recent weeks, Penn baseball has surged ahead, winning seven of eight Ivy games in dominating fashion, yet with no single person responsible for the hot streak.
