DePaul women's coach Doug Bruno sees his program as a worthy successor to the former league powerhouses Connecticut and Notre Dame.

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.

The phone call came at dinnertime, and I could tell instantly that the daughter on the other end was uncomfortable. So we talked of the usual stuff - her life, ours, how things were going in graduate school. And then we got to the point. Our daughter wanted us to know that she would be moving in with her then-boyfriend. Soon. She methodically gave me the new address. I methodically wrote it down. But as it was happening, I knew, standing at the kitchen counter more than 25 years ago, that we'd crossed another generational border.

This time, it's Penn-Princeton women, and the Quakers and Tigers will be playing for unprecedented stakes when the ball goes up Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at Jadwin Gym.
