PRINCETON - To become an Ivy League champion, the Penn women's basketball team brought down the four-year rule of Princeton Tuesday night with a stunning 80-64 upset of the Tigers at Jadwin Gym.
The victory by the Quakers (22-6, 12-2 Ivy) sends them to the NCAA tournament for the third time in the program's history and the first time since 2004.
Princeton (20-8, 11-3) had easily handled Penn in 11 straight meetings, including a 84-53 league opener at the Palestra on Jan. 11.
The Ivy League is the only conference that does not have a postseason tournament to determine an NCAA automatic bid. Penn and Princeton came into Tuesday night's final regular-season game tied for first.
