A second-half rally from Penn proved too late as Yale celebrated a 58-51 win over the Quakers in women's basketball at the Palestra last night. Penn (1-15 overall, 0-2 Ivy League), led by Kim Adams (16 points) and Sarah Bucar (14), closed a 14-point deficit to four, but Yale (7-10, 2-1), paced by a 16-point effort from Megan Vasquez and 14 points from Yoyo Greenfield, got its first victory at the Palestra in 2 years. Penn will look to rebound tonight when Brown visits the Palestra for a 7 p.m. tipoff.

GEORGE W. BUSH didn't idly sit by when the University of Michigan's policy of racial preferences in admissions was being argued before the U.S. Supreme Court last year. He sent out the U.S. Justice Department to oppose Michigan's "anti-merit" admissions policy. So imagine our surprise last week after he was cornered by a columnist who got him to say he also opposes "legacy" preferences like the one he got as the son of a Yale alumnus when he was accepted at the Ivy League school.

Senior guard Edwin Draughan scored 20 points and added five assists to lead Yale to a 56-43 win over Princeton last night in New Haven, Conn. Draughan was 8 for 12 from the field for the Bulldogs, who improved to 8-12, 4-3 in the Ivy League. Princeton fell to 11-11 and 2-6, the first time the program has started 2-6 in the Ivy, which was established in 1956. Yale freshman forward Caleb Holmes scored 10 points and freshman guard Eric Flato contributed seven. Flato hit back-to-back shots that built Yale's lead back to 12 after being cut to 36-29 with 12 minutes, 24 seconds left.

Penn's trip to Yale's John J. Lee Amphitheater had become an annual nightmare for the Quakers, and it nearly turned into another lurid tale last night. But after winnowing an 18-point deficit to two, Yale failed to get a shot off with under 2 minutes to go, and then missed an open layup after that, opening the door for Penn to break the building's well-known hex and escape with a 70-63 victory. Penn had lost three of its last four games and four of the last six at Yale. The win bucked the norm in more ways than that.

With a two-season, 18-game winning streak, Penn coach Al Bagnoli should have few worries. Bagnoli has worries. Yesterday, following Penn's 14-6 victory over Yale Saturday at Franklin Field, Bagnoli was concerned about his frustrating offense. Leading, 7-0, the Quakers (6-0 overall, 4-0 in the Ivy League) were unable to convert a first-and-goal at Yale's 1-yard line. Later, quarterback Mark DeRosa was intercepted and a 39-yard field goal attempt by Andy Glockner was blocked.

High school dropout Frank Sinatra will go to Yale Law School April 15 as a distinguished lecturer, and - no different from his Atlantic City casino appearances - he's a tough ticket. Yale alumnus and Ol' Blue Eyes pal Sidney Zion, who began a lecture series there three years ago, said the school has been swamped with requests for tickets to the talk. "The place only holds 550, so I can't imagine how we will be able to handle all the students that want to attend," he said. The lecture might be wired via closed-circuit TV to the Yale gym. No outside TV news cameras will be permitted and, although some reporters will be invited, Sinatra won't answer their questions.

PRINCETON, N.J. - The final moment of Steve Donahue's first season at Penn will be one final possession when his team had a chance to finish an incredible comeback at Princeton. Penn had the ball on the baseline with 3.2 seconds left, trailing by a single point after being behind by 18 almost 15 minutes before. Jackson Donahue got the ball and headed for the hoop. He tried to drop the ball off to Darien Nelson-Henry right in front of the rim, but it came loose and the buzzer went off, Princeton winning Tuesday night, 72-71, after leading 49-31.

Makai Mason scored 22 points and Brandon Sherrod added 13 to lead Yale to a 71-55 victory over Columbia on Saturday night in New York, clinching the Bulldogs' first NCAA tournament bid since 1962. The Bulldogs (22-6, 13-1 Ivy) shared the league championship last year with Harvard, but lost the playoff game with the Crimson. Saturday's win ended the second longest NCAA drought of any team that has made the tournament previously, according to Stats. Only Dartmouth (1959) has gone longer without making it. Columbia is now third on that list, having not made the NCAAs since 1968.

The last time Penn faced Yale, this year's Ivy League front-runner, the Quakers were dropped by 23 points and fell to 0-3 in the league. Since then, the young Quakers had improved to 4-4. So Saturday night at the Palestra was a measuring stick of sorts, a gut check to see how far they've come since that Jan. 29 stinging defeat. For 20 minutes, there was progress. Then the second half began and the Bulldogs went into another gear, and powered past Penn, 79-58. "I was really pleased in a lot of ways with our effort for 25, 30 minutes," said Penn coach Steve Donahue.

Sunday's 50th Super Bowl is expected to attract more than 120 million American TV viewers. To satisfy such an enormous and demanding audience, CBS will employ 70 cameras and 250 microphones to capture, scrutinize and, if necessary, replay virtually everything that happens at Levi's Stadium. The year's most anticipated football telecast, Super Bowl 50 will be the most sophisticated ever, the 2016 version of a constantly evolving species that emerged from the primordial ooze 77 years ago. The first televised NFL game happened on Oct. 22, 1939, a meaningless matchup of two bad teams, the Eagles and Dodgers, at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Although Penn has shown signs of progress in Steve Donahue's first season, the amount of work the Quakers still have to do to return to Ivy League title contention was made clear Friday night. Yale, meanwhile, showed once again why it was anointed the preseason favorite to win this year's crown, and reach the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1962. Led by arguably the conference's best frontcourt tandem in Brandon Sherrod and Justin Sears, the Bulldogs' athleticism and experience proved too much for Penn's young squad in an 81-58 rout at John J. Lee Amphitheater.

Penn's Jackson Donahue had to patiently wait his turn, but the 6-foot, 175-pound freshman is making the most of his recent increased playing time. And he appears to be among the up-and-coming three-point shooters in the Ivy League. Donahue, who is no relation to Penn coach Steve Donahue, is 10th in the Ivy League in three-point field goals, averaging 1.9 per game. He didn't play in two of the first seven games, and while he is averaging 6.8 points in 15.6 minutes, his numbers are drastically different in the last four games, all as a starter.

Playing under the bright lights, in front of a national television audience and on a rare Friday night, Penn played its most complete game of the season from start to finish to earn a 34-20 victory over Ivy League rival Yale on Friday night at Franklin Field. The Quakers (3-3, 2-1 Ivy), playing in front of 5,849, got another good game from quarterback Alek Torgersen. After passing for 296 yards and three touchdowns in last week's rout of Columbia, Torgersen was 25 for 35 for 350 yards and four touchdowns.
