Penn basketball has lost four of its last five games, most recently to Big 5 rival Villanova. The Quakers have a chance to turn their fortune around with a home game against Delaware on the schedule for Wednesday night.
Senior guard Zach Rosen has carried the Quakers so far this season, averaging 21.3 points per game (or almost a third of Penn's underwhelming attack, which averages 65.7 points per game, good for 231st in the nation.)
Against the Wildcats, Penn had no answer for the size of Villanova's Mouphtaou Yarou, who tallied 21 points and 11 rebounds. That advantage inside helped the Wildcats overcome a 7-for-23 shooting night from behind the arc. The Blue Hens of Delaware should not pose such a problem.
