PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s the Ivy League opener for the Penn Quakers on Saturday night as they welcome rival Princeton to the Palestra.
The Quakers are coming off a 76-57 loss to La Salle last time out on Saturday. Penn played that game without sophomore starting center Darien Nelson-Henry, he’s actually missed the last four games because of concussion. Head coach Jerome Allen talks about whether he’ll be available against the Tigers.
“We hope,” Allen tells KYW Newsradio. “We’re definitely not sure. I’m confident that if he’s ready, we’re going to be ready to roll. And if he’s not, someone else will have an opportunity to contribute.”
The first two months of the season were not kind to the Quakers. Penn is just 2-10 as they get ready for league play.
“You have to learn how to win,” Allen says. “It’s always a process and I think we’re moving forward.”
