The painful lesson that Penn point guard Zack Rosen took away from the Palestra on Tuesday night was not particularly new, or one that gets any easier to accept with time and repetition. "Losing stinks," Rosen said. "It stinks against anybody, but especially against a city rival, against guys you played pickup against all summer. " Penn lost to a very good La Salle team, 68-57, in a Big Five City Series game. The outcome wasn't set in concrete from the start, but the Explorers had superior talent, and that is usually a pretty good indicator.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The big question for Penn heading into the season was who would fill the shoes of graduated star Zack Rosen. The Quakers found a pair of answers Monday night in the NIT Season Tip-Off, but they were not enough in an 84-69 loss to Delaware at John Paul Jones Arena. Playing with foul trouble for most of the second half, junior Miles Cartwright continued to establish himself as the go-to guard for coach Jerome Allen, scoring 20 points. Junior forward Fran Dougherty finished with 21 points and six rebounds.

Before he would become the head men's basketball coach at Penn, Jerome Allen received key insight into what makes the Quakers' senior point guard, Zack Rosen, tick. In the summer of 2009, Allen wasn't affiliated with the program but was asked by Rosen to help him improve his game. Rosen had just finished a successful freshman season but was looking to refine his game. Allen told him he would work with him in the summer but with one caveat. The former Penn guard wanted to see how truly committed Rosen was, so he told him to report to the Palestra for summer workouts by 6 a.m. "My gauge to see how serious somebody is if they are willing to come that early to work out," Allen said.

HANOVER, N.H. - After 20 minutes of play, the Penn men's basketball team looked as if it was still feeling the effects of a 15-point loss to Harvard on Friday night. Down by 34-21 at the half, the Quakers had committed 11 turnovers while Dartmouth had shot 51.9 percent from the floor. The second half played out like many in this season for the Quakers, with Penn roaring back for a 70-58 victory. "One of the recurring themes this season is that we waited until we got down by double digits to really start competing," coach Jerome Allen said.

Penn has one of the most inexperienced men's basketball teams in the Ivy League, so the assumption is that the Quakers will struggle after going 20-13 last season and finishing second with an 11-3 league record. Gone are Ivy League player-of-the-year Zack Rosen; Tyler Bernardini, who averaged 12.2 points; and defensive stopper Rob Belcore. The lone returning player who was a double-figure scorer is 6-foot-3 junior guard Miles Cartwright, who averaged 10.8 points. Why, with such an inexperienced unit - predicted to finish fifth in the league - is coach Jerome Allen so upbeat?

HANOVER, N.H. - After twenty minutes of play, it seemed as if the Penn men's basketball team were still suffering the effects of Friday night's 15-point loss to Harvard. Down 34-21 at the half, the Quakers had committed 11 turnovers and were falling victim to 51.9 percent Dartmouth field goal shooting. But in a fashion that is now typical of coach Jerome Allen's season, Penn came back to win, 70-58. The Quakers' season finale is Tuesday at the Palestra against Princeton. If Penn wins, Harvard will win its first-ever Ivy League title.

It is no secret that Penn will have a terrific backcourt next season - with seniors Zack Rosen and Tyler Bernardini along with sophomore Miles Cartwright. That group is good enough to win an Ivy League championship. It is also no secret that Penn had to get bigger and more athletic in the frontcourt to have a chance to challenge Harvard and Princeton for the title. Nobody will really know until the games begin in November and the Ivy games start in 2012, but there is a real confidence around the program that Penn's seven-player recruiting class is terrific, with several frontcourt players ready to start and make a difference.

THE PENN players arrived on the Palestra court for warmups in plain back jerseys. They repaired to their locker room for final instructions and, 7 minutes prior to introductions, every last one of them emerged wearing blue jerseys with a the number 53 on them. Just before tipoff, head coach Jerome Allen came to the Penn bench wearing his maroon varsity sweater with a big blue P over his chest. It was nearly 20 years ago to the day when Allen played the last game of his Penn career, a classic 91-85 overtime loss to Alabama, a first-round NCAA game at the Baltimore Arena.

I WILL NEVER forget the day in 2010 at the Palestra when Jerome Allen went from interim head coach at Penn to permanent head coach. He spoke from the heart about his love for his school, how much it had meant to the kid who left 4601 Germantown Ave. for Penn to become a student and one of the best players in school history during one of its greatest eras and his absolute belief that he and his staff would get it done. I believed him. Two years later, Penn was playing at Princeton with a share of the Ivy League title on the line.

WITH A STATISTICAL transformation as large as this, you might expect a bit more surprise surrounding Fran Dougherty's emergence as Penn's top scorer and rebounder. But given the effort the 6-8 forward put forth in the offseason leading to his junior season, that's not exactly the case. "I'm not really surprised with how he's started," teammate Miles Cartwright says. "He worked really hard. He's still just working hard every day. He's just trying to improve and make sure what he's shown so far is consistent.

This season, they both landed jobs a five-minute drive apart, for different teams in the top professional league in Israel. Moore in the outskirts of Tel Aviv, Rosen in Holon, just south.

A SEASON after coming within a game of an Ivy League championship, Penn, after losing all-everything Zack Rosen, two other starters and its entire coaching staff except head coach Jerome Allen, will be very young and mostly untested as it faces another daunting schedule. The Quakers will play in the NIT Season Tipoff, with the first two games at Virginia. Penn will play Delaware in the first round. If it wins, it will play the Virginia-Fairfield winner for the right to go to Madison Square Garden for the NIT Final Four Thanksgiving week.

ORLANDO - Former Penn star Zack Rosen is adapting to his postcollege basketball career. The undrafted rookie point guard, player of the year in the Ivy League and Big Five, has struggled to gain consistent minutes for the 76ers in the Orlando NBA Summer League. "I'm just trying to do the most I can with whatever minutes I get," Rosen said. "It's a different situation; it's a new thing. You don't know what kind of opportunities you're going to get, but [I] try to make the most of them.
