Penn Visits Princeton; Share of Ivy Title on Line

By Matt Leon

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Penn Quakers have what every team that plays college basketball games in March wants.  Control of their own destiny.

With a win tonight, the Quakers would earn a share of the Ivy League championship with Harvard.   They would also get the chance to play a one-game showdown with the Crimson, with the winner there earning the Ancient 8’s automatic NCAA Tournament berth.

Penn is 19-11 and 11-2 in the Ivy League.  They rolled the Tigers in the first meeting between the two teams, 82-67, back on January 30th at the Palestra.  But the Tigers are also playing good basketball, they have won 7 of 8 and sit at 18-11 heading into tonight.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with the radio voice of Penn basketball, Brian Seltzer, to break down this match-up and talk about what a special season that has become for Penn.
