HANOVER, N.H. - A long season got a little longer for the Penn men's basketball team Friday with a 67-58 loss to longtime Ivy League doormat Dartmouth.
The Big Green, which has won a total of nine league wins over the last five seasons, played without all-Ivy center Gabas Maldunas, his backup, and a starting forward, but nonetheless rallied from a seven-point halftime deficit for its first victory over the Quakers at Leede Arena since Jan. 31, 2009.
"I didn't like anything about it," said Penn coach Jerome Allen, whose team visits league leader Harvard on Saturday. "They just played harder and wanted it more. We had 18 turnovers, and the majority were unforced. We're not patient, and we don't have the best vision."
