The Penn Quakers look to extend their winning streak to four games with a big match-up with Harvard on the horizon.
The Penn Quakers basketball team will look to extend their winning streak to four games on Friday, when they travel to the Edward Leede Arena to face the Dartmouth Big Green. The Quakers are 15-11 on the season, 7-2 in conference play and trail the Ivy League-leading Harvard Crimson by 1.5 games in the standings. With five regular season games remaining Penn still has a chance to catch the Crimson because the two teams are scheduled to meet once more on Saturday night. Harvard beat the the Quakers by six in their last meeting.
In order for Saturday night's match-up against Harvard to have legitimate Ivy League implications the Quakers will have to defeat the Big Green on Friday. Dartmouth is 5-21 on the season, 1-9 in conference play and the worst team in the Ivy League. However; they played the Quakers tough two weeks ago, losing by only three. Led by 12 from Jvonte Brooks, the Big Green were able to out-shoot the Quakers at the free throw line, 19 to two.
