Penn Vs. Yale: Quakers Overwhelm Bulldogs, Keep Pace With Harvard

The Penn Quakers took care of business on Saturday night vs. Yale, dominating the second half and routing the Bulldogs by a final score of 68-47.

Zac Rosen, a candidate for the player of the year in the Ivy League, led the way with 20 points to go along with 6 rebounds and two assists, and Penn remains a half game back of Harvard, who defeated Cornell 67-63 on Saturday.

The Quakers will go to Princeton on Tuesday night for the final game of the regular season, and a win would knot them back up in the standings with Harvard atop of the Ivy League, and force a one-game playoff to determine the league champion and NCAA tournament entrant.

Penn has earned 23 NCAA tournament births, but none since 2007. Saturday night's win pushed them one step closer, and the stakes have risen for Tuesday night's showdown at Princeton, whom Penn has already defeated once this season.
