Penn Vs. Harvard: Quakers And Crimson Face Off In Ivy League Showdown

Penn and Harvard meet in a showdown between the Ivy League's two best teams.

The 16-11 Penn Quakers will travel to the Lavietes Pavilion on Saturday night for their second match-up with the first place Harvard Crimson this season. With only a few games remaining in the regular season and the two teams separated by only one loss in the conference standings, this showdown has serious Ivy League implications.

These teams met two weeks ago at the Palestra, where Harvard topped Penn by a final score of 56-50 in a sloppy contest where both teams shot under 35 percent from the field. The biggest difference in the game was the free throw discrepancy, where Harvard was able to attempt 13 more than Penn.

Both teams bring winning streaks into tonight's contest – three for Harvard and four for Penn – and both teams will be playing the second game of a back-to-back. Harvard narrowly beat Princeton on Friday and Penn beat Dartmouth by three points, on the road.

Tip is scheduled for 7:00 EST.
