Penn Vs. Brown Preview: Quakers Look For Sixth Straight Win

The Penn Quakers will look for their sixth consecutive win on Friday.

Coming off a mammoth victory over the first place Harvard Crimson last weekend, the Penn Quakers will look to continue their hot play on Friday night, when they host the Brown Bears. Including their recent win over the Crimson, the Quakers have won five consecutive games and 10 of their last 12. Despite an overall record of 17-11, Penn is 9-2 in conference play and trails Harvard by only a half game in the Ivy League standings.

The Brown Bears are also coming off an impressive victory, a 16-point win over Columbia, which snapped an eight-game losing streak. The Bears are 8-21 overall and 2-10 in conference play, which is good for second-to-last in the Ivy League.

These two teams met once earlier this season and Penn rolled, winning by 17. The Quakers were led by a balanced scoring attack in the victory, with all five starters scoring at least eight points. Brown's Andrew McCarthy scored a game-high 20.
