Quakers Make it a Win Win Weekend

Coming off a tight overtime Ivy League victory over Harvard on Friday, the Penn Quakers (10-7, 2-2 Ivy) invited the Dartmouth Big Green (7-12, 0-4 Ivy) to the Palestra for a Saturday match up.

Penn dominated for the whole contest and turned in a 54-46 victory.

The Big Green were woeful from the floor in the first half shooting just 19.2% and falling behind by double digits.

Despite the Quaker domination, Dartmouth was able to cut the lead to a nearly manageable nine points with 5:15 to play.  

With just over a minute to play, the Big Green has an uphill battle, trailing 53-46 but Penn held their ground.

Chris Knight led Dartmouth with a 12 point contest with Trevon Ary-Turner complimenting with 10.

Devon Goodman led the visitors with a well played 16 points.

Goodman went 7 of 9 from the floor and nailed a sweet three pointer to put Penn up, 10-2.

Jordan Dingle added 13 points.

AJ Brodeur had a less than stellar outing with a 4 for 16 shooting day.

Brodeur finished with 9 points which snapped his 40 game double digit DI streak.
