PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It is the start of Ivy League play for the Penn Quakers on Saturday night as they visit longtime rival Princeton.
It has been a struggle, to say the least, for Penn so far this season. They are just 2-12. But the start of Ancient 8 action allows them, in a way, to hit the reset button on the season.
“We try to tell the guys that you still have an opportunity to play for the same thing (Ivy League title) you set out for on September 15th when we first got together,” Penn head coach Jerome Allen tells KYW Newsradio. “Although I think we all would’ve loved to have been a little bit more successful, in terms of wins and losses, you’re still playing for the ultimate prize, starting with tomorrow night.”
