Penn completed a weekend sweep of on the road last night with an 81-68 win over Harvard at Lavietes Pavilion to stay unbeaten atop the Ivy League, a game ahead of Princeton. The Tigers (7-12, 5-1) edged Dartmouth, 52-49, in Hanover, N.H., to stay in contention with the Quakers (14-6, 6-0). Princeton's Scott Greenman scored 13 of his 16 points in the second half, including four free throws in the final 11.1 seconds. Penn and Princeton will meet for the first time this season on Tuesday night at the Palestra.

For the second straight season, Penn guard Ibby Jaaber has been chosen by conference basketball coaches as the Ivy League player of the year. The announcement was made yesterday, a day after the Quakers completed their third straight championship season in the Ancient Eight with a 64-48 victory at Princeton. The win left Penn at 22-8 overall and 13-1 in the Ivy League. "It's a great honor for him, and it's well-deserved," said first-year Penn coach Glen Miller, who will call his players together tomorrow to begin preparing for the NCAA tournament.

Paul Vitelli hit two free throws with seven seconds left to lead Yale past Penn, 54-52, last night and end the Quakers' 23-game Ivy League winning streak. Penn had a chance to win with time running out, but freshman Ibrahim Jaaber's three-point attempt missed at the buzzer. It was the first league loss for Penn in nearly two years, since the Quakers were defeated in Yale's John J. Lee Amphitheater on Feb. 8, 2002. Penn fell to 7-7 in its Ivy League opener. Yale improved to 6-10, 1-2 in the league.

The misery continues for Penn, as the Quakers dropped their 10th straight game to open the season, 77-62, at Lafayette yesterday. Sophomore Zack Rosen notched a career-high 30 points, and junior Jack Eggleston tied a career high with 19 points and had 11 rebounds for his second double-double of the season. But the rest of the Quakers shot just 5-for-22 from the field and scored a combined 13 points. Penn also had a season-high 24 turnovers. Penn trailed by 18 with less than 13 minutes to play, but outscored Lafayette 15-4 over a 3-minute, 45-second span punctuated by Rosen knocking down his sixth three-pointer of the game, a career high.

As expected, Penn sophomore point guard Zack Rosen was named to the all-Ivy League first team yesterday. Teammate Jack Eggleston, a junior forward, garnered second-team honors. Rosen and three seniors, Harvard's Jeremy Lin and Cornell's Ryan Wittman and Jeff Foote, were unanimous selections by the league's eight coaches. Cornell's Louis Dale, another senior, joined them on the first team. Rosen is the Quakers' first first-team pick since Mark Zoller and Ibrahim Jaaber in the 2006-07 season.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Most nights, when Penn's basketball team takes the proverbial stage, Zack Rosen and Tyler Bernardini play the leading roles. On Saturday night, one of the team's best supporting actors commanded the spotlight. Fellow senior Rob Belcore tied a career high with 17 points, including 12 in the first half, pacing the Quakers in a 65-48 win over Brown at the Pizzitola Center. "We just had to put yesterday behind us," Belcore said, referring to Friday's loss at Yale.

Jerome Allen thoroughly enjoys being Penn's interim men's basketball coach. Never mind that the Quakers have gone 1-4 since he replaced Glen Miller, who was fired Dec. 14, or that the former Ivy League power's overall record is 1-11. The former Quakers standout believes he has the best job in Philly. "To have this opportunity to be the head coach at the University of Pennsylvania is something that's just so awesome," said Allen, whose squad entertains La Salle in Wednesday's Big Five game at the Palestra.

Augmented by a season-high performance from three-point range, Penn eased whatever apprehension coach Glen Miller expected in his return to Brown's Pizzitola Center last night. The Quakers connected on 60 percent (12 of 20) of their shots from beyond the arc in a convincing, 77-61 victory over the struggling Bears. Penn received double-digit points from Mark Zoller with 18, Brian Grandieri (17), Tommy McMahon (15) and Ibrahim Jaaber (12). The Quakers' uncharacteristic perimeter game was complemented with an equally impressive showing in the offensive-rebound department, as the visitors finished with 16 offensive boards to the Bears' four.

Villanova and Penn have proven they are teams that can cope with adjustments. The Wildcats (5-1) are dealing with - not reeling from - the loss of three key starters. The Quakers (4-2) are adapting to - rather than collapsing under - a new coach and a new system. Villanova and Penn will meet tonight at the Palestra for a Big Five opener for both teams. "It will give us a lot of answers to how we'll be able to compete on this level," said Penn's new coach, Glen Miller. Big Five games at the Palestra are always a main event, and this one should be no different.

Penn has won the last three Ivy basketball titles, five of the last six and seven of the last nine. The Quakers have finished lower than second once since 1991. That was a decade ago. But they aren't favored to four-peat. Or even finish runner-up. That's what happens when you have to replace the two-time Ivy Player of the Year (Ibrahim Jaaber), another first-team All-Big 5 guy (Mark Zoller) and another 3-year starter (Steve Danley). During the offseason they lost Tommy McMahon, who likely would have started, due to hip surgery.

Cornell coach Steve Donahue spent 10 years at the University of Pennsylvania as an assistant to former Quakers coach Fran Dunphy. He's in his 7th year coaching against Penn at Ivy League rival Cornell. Safe to say Donahue knows the Quakers well. So it carried weight when Donahue said the Quakers under first-year coach Glen Miller looked much like Dunphy's Quakers after Penn pushed past Cornell, 74-56, at Newman Arena last night. "They're very similar in terms of mental approach to the game," Donahue said.

Only about a half-dozen members of the creatively wild and vocal student section were at the Palestra during Penn's winter break last night. But the loyalists watched the Quakers pull out a comeback victory, 90-78, against Illinois-Chicago. Penn (6-4) regrouped during halftime and used the fuel of one of its injured stars to take down the feisty Flames (6-7). Brian Grandieri, Penn's starting guard, cannot explain why his left Achilles tendon was not screaming at him as it has been the last two weeks, when he was forced to wear a boot.
