The Penn Quakers will open their defense of the Ivy League basketball title with a pair of games this weekend at the Palestra. The Quakers will meet Harvard tonight and Dartmouth on Saturday, both at 7 p.m. The Quakers registered a 22-7 season last year, were undefeated in the Ivy League, and won a bid to the NCAA tournament. They are off to a great start this season with a 7-1 record, including victories over Southern California, Washington and Georgia. They are led by forward Shawn Trice and guards Matt Maloney and Jerome Allen.

The Penn football team stepped out of the Ivy League Saturday night and made the most of the occasion. Facing Fordham of the Patriot League, the Quakers took an early lead and then withstood a rally by the Rams before completing a 35-20 victory at Franklin Field. In winning its 16th straight October game, Penn improved to 2-2 while defeating Fordham (1-4) for the fifth time in as many meetings. Up by four points at the break, Penn reached the end zone twice in the third period to take a commanding, 28-10 advantage.

Over cold beers in warm taverns on Saturday evenings, flush from yet another Quakers victory, the argument might arise among old grads about just when it was that this football renaissance began at the University of Pennsylvania. There are those who will insist that the Quakers shed the snake's skin of a loser that September day against Dartmouth in 1982, when they shut out the Big Green, 21-0. It was the first time the Quakers had defeated Dartmouth since 1977. It was the first time they had won a game on the road since 1976.

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.

Drexel coach Bruiser Flint had for years been lobbying his counterparts in the City Six to come play the Dragons on their home court. Yesterday, Flint got his wish when their neighborhood rival, Penn, visited the Daskalakis Athletic Center for a nationally televised contest at 10 a.m. that was included in ESPN's College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon. "My boss told me, 'Look, we have the game here; now we've got to win,' " said Flint, whose team played its opener before a crowd of 2,434.

Of all the questions floating over the Penn Quakers at the start of the season, perhaps the one weighing heaviest on Al Bagnoli's mind tipped the scales at two-thirds of a ton. The Quakers' offensive line was a mystery. Only two starters returned from the previous year. The three other starters were seniors who hadn't played much. Then there was the new system - the new plays, the new terminology - being introduced by Bagnoli, the new coach. "It's really difficult to say whether we had any realistic goals," Bagnoli said yesterday, "besides trying to get those kids to play hard and try to execute what we wanted done.

On the night after they clinched their second consecutive Ivy League championship, the Penn Quakers needed overtime to beat Brown, 74-68, last night at the Pizzitola Sports Center. The Quakers (20-7, 12-1 league) trailed almost the entire way, but they got a big performance out of Eric Osmundson in the second half. Osmundson hit five three-pointers - all in the second half and overtime - and delivered five assists. Mark Zoller scored 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, while Brian Grandieri added 13 points, 8 rebounds and 4 steals.

A first-half lapse proved costly for the Penn Quakers in a 76-62 loss to Marist on Sunday in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. The Quakers (2-7) held a 15-13 lead, but the Red Foxes scored 10 in a row and 16 of the next 17 after that. Marist (3-9) led by 47-24 at the half. Khallid Hart paced the hosts with 21 points. Chavaughn Lewis added 14 points, and Adam Kemp and Manny Thomas had 12 each. Penn's fortunes improved little in the second half. The Quakers got no closer than 14 points as Marist won the rebounding battle, 45-32.

Lafayette's basketball program, whose team finished 2-25 this season, hopes to steal a little magic from the NCAA-tournament-bound Penn Quakers. The Leopards yesterday named Penn assistant Fran O'Hanlon as their new head coach. O'Hanlon was in demand. He interviewed last week for the coaching job at Florida International, and was a finalist there. He said yesterday that Lafayette, which is in Easton, Pa., and is a member of the Patriot League, seemed like the better choice. O'Hanlon was Penn coach Fran Dunphy's top assistant during Dunphy's six- year run with the Quakers.

Al Bagnoli knows there will be a lot of emotion flowing today at Columbia when his Penn Quakers take the field five days after the suicide of a teammate, running back Kyle Ambrogi. The Penn coach is not going to be demanding extra brainpower from his players, who were not available to reporters this week. "We've had to be smart," Bagnoli said earlier this week. "We're not going to be anywhere near as complex as we have been. That goes back to the limited practice time, the focus factor, the retention factor.

Ray Priore's Penn Quakers captured a share of the Ivy League football title in his first season at the helm. On Tuesday, Priore was named coach of the year in voting by the league's eight head coaches. In his 29th season on the Quakers' staff, Priore became the seventh first-year head coach to win an Ancient Eight title. He was the seventh Ivy League head coach to do so. Penn shared the crown with Dartmouth and Harvard. Priore guided the Quakers to a 7-3 record and a 6-1 mark in the league to claim the program's 17th Ivy championship.

After a 9-19 season and a coaching change, the Penn Quakers under Steve Donahue will play a different style but use most of the same personnel. So expect a work in progress. Donahue is pleased with how Penn's veterans have adapted to his offensive system, which is all layups and three-pointers or trips to the foul line. Given this emphasis, Donahue will go a little smaller, with 6-foot-4 junior Matt Howard expected to start at the power forward position. So starting out, look for a couple of true guards and a couple of wing players and then a center, 6-11 senior Darien Nelson-Henry, who will be asked to use different skills, including setting up shop farther from the basket.

Penn Quakers players came out before Jerome Allen's last game as their coach wearing plain black warm-ups. Then they changed into plain blue tops, no Penn insignia, just Allen's old number, 53, in white. There was no missing the message. Allen had been informed last week he wouldn't be back next season. Allen himself wore his varsity sweater, with the "P" emblazoned on the front. His wife had decided years ago it was too small for him and took possession of it, he said. He borrowed it back for this night.

When it comes to judging coaches and players, we all have our biases - professional biases, not talking personal. My first college hoops beat at The Inquirer consisted of covering an Ivy League team that never lost an Ivy League game for three seasons. A team that featured a star player named Jerome Allen, who was Penn's head coach for the last time Tuesday against Princeton. My bias stems from covering that era of Penn Quakers, 1992-95. The guards went on to the pros. The assistant coaches went on to be head coaches.

Mercifully, it's over. Winless since Feb. 6, the Penn Quakers, starting four freshman and junior Tony Hicks, halted their seven-game losing streak Friday with a 54-46 victory over Columbia at the Palestra. Penn never trailed in the game, mostly because they limited the Lions to one of the worst shooting halves seen on a collegiate basketball court in some time. The Lions scored just nine points in the first half, at one point going more than 13 minutes without a field goal. "I thought tonight that the guys competed at a high level," Allen, looking relieved, said following the team's first win in a month.

NEW HAVEN, CONN. - For an approximately 15-minute stretch in last night's game against Yale, scoring a basket became a seemingly impossible task for the Penn Quakers. They couldn't hit shots - both open and contested - and consistently turned the ball over to a stingy Yale defense. That offensive drought, spanning the end of the first half and to beginning of the second, made a late rally too difficult for the Quakers as they fell, 69-54, in front of 1,128 people at the John J. Lee Amphitheater.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Ivy League-leading Harvard was too much for the Penn Quakers to handle Saturday night, as the Crimson rolled to an 80-50 win at Lavietes Pavilion. Harvard (17-3, 4-0) remained undefeated in conference play, while the loss dropped Penn to 1-2 in the Ivy League standings and 4-13 overall. The game was tight through the first 10-plus minutes, with Penn holding a slim lead before a two-handed dunk by Harvard's Kyle Casey put the Crimson ahead, 19-18. That slam opened the floodgates, as Harvard went on to score 25 of the next 30 points to take a 44-23 lead into halftime.

For college basketball fans, this is a great time of year. As the season winds down and the conference tournaments near, it's great fun to speculate about "who's in and who's out" of the NCAA Tournament. Many schools have no realistic chance of winning it all. Just making the tournament and stealing a game or two is the whole goal of their season. Here in Philadelphia, we have a rich tradition regarding the NCAA Tournament. Every team in the Big 5 has not only been in the tournament many times, but each has advanced to the hallowed "Final Four.

They may be young and for the most part inexperienced, but the new-look Penn Quakers provided the Palestra crowd with a thrilling show in their opener Friday night. It was a tale of two halves for the Quakers, who erased a bleak start with a great final 20 minutes en route to an 80-75 over Maryland-Baltimore County. "We shouldn't have been in that situation," guard Miles Cartwright said. "But when the time came, we just kind of buckled down and played as hard as we could. " Cartwright, the top returning scorer from last season, answered the call as to who would step up in place of the graduated Zack Rosen, last season's Ivy League and Big Five player of the year, leading the Quakers with 21 points.
