Princeton uses strong second half to pull away from Penn women's basketball

It wasn’t supposed to go this way.

Coming off of two Ivy League victories, Penn women’s basketball hoped to secure another victory at the Palestra, this time against a Princeton team that the Red and Blue defeated . The Orange and Black, however, had other plans. Junior Bella Alarie, who put up 21 points in the last meeting between the schools, exploded for 33 points and 10 rebounds to help the visiting Tigers roll to a 68-53 win.

Despite a disappointing first quarter performance on the offensive end of the floor, Penn (18-5, 8-2 Ivy) was able to rely on characteristically solid defense to go into the first break trailing Princeton by just three points, 15-12.

When they were able to get shots off — the Quakers turned the ball over three times in the first period and struggled with shot clock awareness — they managed to hit at a 43 percent clip while holding their opponents to just 33 percent on 5-for-15 shooting.

Nevertheless, Princeton (16-9, 8-2) forced the Red and Blue into multiple tough, low-percentage shots. Senior forward Princess Aghayere’s early foul trouble made it difficult for Penn to establish an inside presence, and Alarie used all of her 6-foot-4 frame to cause problems in the paint for Penn’s Eleah Parker.

“[Alarie]’s too good,” coach Mike McLaughlin said. “You have to try to make her work and play in a crowd a little bit more. We didn’t do that enough and in the second half we gave up way too many breakdown lobs to her.”

After Alarie blocked Parker under the basket, the sophomore center responded minutes later on the other end of the court to start a back-and-forth battle that would continue for the rest of the half.

The second quarter saw the Tigers quickly extend their lead to eight, forcing Penn to take a timeout with 6:18 remaining in the half. Ever-determined, the Quakers clawed back, forcing four turnovers in the process, to cut the lead to 24-23 after junior guard Phoebe Sterba hit her first three-pointer of the game

For the rest of the quarter, both teams found ways to make shots; as the buzzer expired to end the first half, Parker missed a short floater and Penn went into the half trailing 33-31.

The second half did not start according to plan for the Red and Blue. Alarie score says te full-back’s proposed £11million move from Albion to Palace on January deadline day was called off after medical examinations revealed a torn meniscus.Ferguson had an operation to repair the knee this week and will be further assessed at thed the Tigers’ first eight points of the third quarter before Penn could get on the board. Another Princeton run extended the lead to 43-31 and McLaughlin called a timeout to allow his team to reset.

“They came at us in the second half, and I don’t know if we responded as well as we’re going to need to down the road,” McLaughlin said.

The Quakers went cold — they went just 6-for-21 from the field in the third quarter — but eight offensive rebounds in the quarter alone led to 10 second-chance points. Seniors Ashley Russell and Princess Aghayere contributed seven points apiece to trim the deficit 50-46 as the teams went into the last period of play.

For the fourth time on the evening, the Red and Blue started a quarter slowly. They opened with two consecutive shot clock violations while giving up two straight buckets to the visiting Tigers.

The Princeton lead grew to 10 points when Alarie again converted inside, forcing Penn into a timeout with 6:05 remaining on the clock.

The Quakers tried everything to stop Alarie in the second half; they rotated Parker and Aghayere in addition to giving minutes to sophomore forward Tori Crawford and junior center Emily Anderson against Princeton’s star. When other Tigers stepped up — sophomore guard Carlie Littlefield converted a four-point play to take an 11-point lead with 5:32 left to play — the game’s result was all but determined.

“To beat a quality opponent, you have to be reallDembele.Manchester United and PSG have been linked with Dembele this week.But Cardoner told Catalunya Ràdio: “Dembélé is a different player, surprising, when we face him, you never know where he will go. He brings a very important element to the ty good in all areas,” McLaughlin said. “I don’t think that was the case tonight.”

Next up for the Red and Blue is a Friday evening home matchup with Harvard (14-9, 7-3), where Penn will look to rebound against a team to whom it on Feb. 16.

Parker had a double-double last time out against the Crimson, but she knows that there’s much to improve before the Red and Blue return to the Palestra.

“We played a tough one against Harvard last time, to get carried with his superb season so far.The Uruguayan midfielder has risen to prominence with Los Blancos of late, but he’s a quiet personality off the pitch.”I’m shy, I always try to respect people’s space, but I try to enjoy myself to the fulso we’re going to focus on our shooting and ways to score on offense,” Parker said. “We struggled from the perimeter, so we should pick that up, and definitely defense. That’s what we’re going to take away from this game for sure.”

The Quakers also play Saturday against Dartmouth (12-11, 5-5). They already hold a over the Big Green this season and will look to revisit that success.

The Ivy League Tournament will stay at Penn this year. But then what?

Last year, the Ivy League tried something new.

For the first time ever, the conference held a four-team postseason men’s and women’s tournament to determine which teams would receive the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. And by all measures, .

The event, which was hosted at Penn’s Palestra, looks like it will become a staple, thanks in part to the riveulas insists Moussa Dembele will not leave this month.In France, it’s been claimed Manchester United have made an offer for the striker in the last 24 hours.But Aulas told RMC: “Moussa himself is not to my knowledge trying (for a departure). “Whateveting games that were played. The tournament featured , one game decided by a single basket, and several of the Ancient Eight’s . But what exactly is the future of the Ivy League Tournament?

For 2018, it’s quite clear. at the end of this season, and even some of its former critics have become strong advocates for having the tournament in general.

“I was never a strong proponent of the tournament,” Penn men’s coach Steve Donahue said. “But after going through what we did last year personally, and then seeing what the tournament looked like at the end, I thought it was an incredible experience for three more teams that would not have experienced any postseason.”

But what about the long-term prospects of the tournament? There is no commitment to a venue beyond this season, and the Ivy League has several options to choose from.

First, they can keep the tournament as is and continue to have it at the Palestra. Many coaches around the league have showcased their support for having the event at one of the most historic buildings in college basketball despite it being Penn’s home court.

“I’ve been very clear and very adamant in my opinion. If we’re going to have a conference tournament, in my opinion — and no one cares what I think — but I’ve felt that we should have it here at the Palestra,” Harvard men’s coach Tommy Amaker said at the end of the tournament last year. “This is a historic venue. It’s an amazing basketball facility and arena, amazing history and tradition, as we know. So for me, personally, if we’re going to do it, having this venue in our conference to me, we should rally around that and showcase that.”

Being the “Cathedral of College Basketball,” the Palestra was a natural choice for the first tournament. But moving forward, the question of home-court advantage comes in to play for the Red and Blue. Penn’s coaches feel that there was in fact no advantage at all.

“We’re not even in our locker room, everything is shifted, people are in the area that we’re in,” Penn women’s coach Mike McLaughlin said. “We had to adapt. It was a home court for us because we played there, but nothing else was a home court — we weren’t in our locker room.”

Donahue concurred.

“The whole environment was so even… I just felt it was a great atmosphere for a tournament game.”

But others feel strongly that having Penn play on its home court every postseason gives the Quakers an unfair advantage.

“Well yeah [it’s an advantage], when you get to play on your home court after you finish in the top four, that’s going to be an advantage for you,” Yale men’s coach James Jones said.

For those who agree with Jones, there are two options. The Ivy League could adopt a rotating system where each Ivy school gets a chance to host, or they could go to a neutral site altogether. Each method has its own strengths and weaknesses.

If the Ivy League chooses to go with a rotating system, it would give each school the chance to showcase their own arenas. However, the league would then run into the problem of smaller venues. The Palestra is by far the largest basketball arena in the Ancient Eight, and it was filled to capacity during the tournament last year. Moving the tournament around would decrease the number of fans able to see the event live from 8,722 (the Palestra’s capacity) to as low as 2,100 (Dartmouth’s capacity, with most other Ivy arenas not far ahead).

However, hosting the tournament at a neutral site is certainly a viable option, and it would help to elimilva has revisited their Champions League collapse against Manchester United last season.While winning Ligue 1, PSG were knocked out of the Champions League at the round 16 stage and also lost to Rennes in the Coupe de France final.Thiago Silva refleinate any sort of home court bias.

“I think a neutral site somewhere in New York would be the best place. Geographically it’s in the middle; there’s a ton of alumni in that area.

Neutral venues for postseason tournaments are extremely popular for larger conferences such as the ACC or the Big Ten, but can be difficult for smaller conferences that cannot afford to pay for larger arenas.

Regardless of the path the Ivy League chooses to take, the tournament should continue to provide thrilling competition. But after this year, it’s anyone’s guess where it will be.

Penn women's basketball bonds over trip to Italy

content_img

One of the beautiful things about sports is their universality — you don’t have to speak the same language as your opponents to recognize a fantastic play or a well-fought game. This past August, Penn women’s basketball got to experience this element of sports firsthand during a ten-day whirlwind tour of Italy.

For the first time in program history, the Quakers embarked overseas for what they called the “2014 Italy Tour,” which included stops in Rome, Florence, Lake Como and Venice. The goal? Soak up a little bit of Italian culture while getting international basketball experience.

“[The team] saw some of the most historic venues in the world — the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Roman Colosseum, the Vatican, the statue of David by Michelangelo,” coach Mike McLaughlin said of the Quaker’s leisure activities. “Things in history that they’ll never forget.”

Beyond just visiting the ‘touristy’ sites, though, the Quakers learned valuable lessons about chemistry and the universality of sports during their brief stint abroad.

“My favorite memory about Italy, more than the sightseeing and traveling, was probably the three games,” senior guard Kathleen Roche said.

During its 2014 Italy Tour, the Quakers played three games against Italian and German semi-professional teams. Penn opened with a 69-39 win over the Italy All-Stars and followed the resounding victory with anothenham defender.The 32 year-old Belgium international comes off contract in June and is yet to seriously discuss new terms with Spurs.Agent Tim de Mul revealed: “We don’t have an agreement at the moment, but I don’t exclude anything. “We consider ever win over AS Vertis La Spezia, 78-49.

Junior guard Brooklyn Juday described playing against these teams as a bonding experience for the Quakers .

“When you’re playing teams that don’t speak your language that’s something that is a little bit difficult to overcome,” she said.

Following their win over La Spezia, the Red and Blue were treated to a five course meal with the members of the Italian team.

“Only two of the girls spoke English, but we were seated every other person with their team members,” Juday recalls. “We had some funny moments with them — and some awkward moments.”

Despite some things lost in translation, McLaughlin regarded the dinner as “the pinnacle” of the trip.

“Their English is limited, our Italian is limited, but you can tell they can communicate over one common bond, which was the game,” he said. “You couldn’t ask for a better environment.”

The language barrier, however, was not the only obstacle the Quakers would face while abroad. With foreign opponents comes an entirely foreign style of play, at times. Penn got a dose of this first hand during its third and final game of the trip, a 62-56 loss to Chemcats Chemnitz of Germany.

“The German team was very brute force, really rough and going right at us,” Roche said.

The Germans’ style of physical play took the Quakers — especially the younger, untested members of the squad — by surprise. Although Penn was not able to pull out a win, it gained valuable experience playing aggressively from buzzer to buzzer.

“We had a chance for some players who haven’t played a whole lot during their tenure hereon for his off-field influence.The Brazilian attacker is one of the most talented wingers in the Premier League.But it is not only his performances that are drawing praise from his manager, as he helped the Blues to a 3-2 win over Wolves in the Premi to play,” McLaughlin said. “I felt that experience in terms of on the court was what really helped move things forward.”

Roche agrees.

“A huge reason for going to Italy was being able to play together, to know how each other plays and to get that groove going before we start our season,” she said.

The Quakers are just days away from their season opener on November 14 against Tennessee in Knoxville, and McLaughlin will be looking to those nine players on his roster with international experience to set the tone for the game.

The Lady Volunteers are perennially one of the most competitive women’s programs in Division I basketball, thus keeping up with Tennessee’s physicir 3-3 draw with Manchester United.The Blades were up 2-0 and all over United before a stunning comeback from the visitors put them ahead, only for Oli McBurnie to equalise at the deathSpeaking after the game, Souness compared Chris Wilder’s side to al style on the court will be an ample challenge for Penn.

But Roche is confident in what her team learned from its loss to Chemcats Chemnitz.

“We’re going to play teams that are really aggressive, so we had to make sure that we don’t let [the Lady Volunteers] beat us up. Especially going into Tennessee,” she said.

“I think that experience in Italy is going to be really beneficial to that.”

Penn baseball look to get ball rolling in Lone Star state

New coach. New schedule. New attitude.

After a disappointing 22-21, 7-13 Ivy season, Penn baseball stripped the old hardware and brought a new vigor to its squad. And this weekend, the Quakers will have a chance to put a positive stamp on the new regime when they travel to play four games against Dallas Baptist.

The Quakers have been hard at work rebuilding their strategy under the tutelage of new coach John Yurkow who has spent the last few seasons as the top assistant coachcott from Yeovil Town.The 19-year-old has penned a one-year contract at St Mary’s.During his time as a scholar at The Glovers, Scott gained valuable experience around the first team squad and appeared on the bench on six separate occasions, most rece under former coach John Cole .

In Yurkow’s first few months with the team, it is evident that team chemistry and friendship are the crux of this new style. The Red and Blue have been active in philanthropy by donating a few thousand dollars and a lot of hair to the Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania, an event junior pitcher Ronnie Glenn said “brought the team closer than ever.”

“It’s been really great because a lot of players have really bought into it,” Glenn added of the fundraiser. “I think the competition aspect of our fundraiser has been positive for the team.”

Dallas Baptist (6-2) has had an impressive start to its season, looking to improve on a 30-30 campaign from a year ago. In the Patriots’ first few games, they dominated Mississippi Valley State, scoring 52 runs in three games while splitting with Sam Houston State.

They have looked strong, but Penn’s revitalized squad will not back down from the challenge.

While offseason preparation is hard for baseball teams up north due to its lack of hospitable playing conditions, the Red and Blue have been hard at work, improving their conditioning and doing everything possible in the air structure aeing Valencia striker Rodrigo Moreno.Having just named former Spain coach Robert Moreno as new trainer, ASM have plans to shop in the LaLiga in January.Le 10 Sport says top of their shopping list is Rodrigo, who has played for Moreno this season in St Penn Park.

As for returning players, Penn will look to staples in its roster like junior pitcher Connor Cuff and sophomore infielder Mike Vilardo to help make a statement in the early goings of this season. They were consistent producers at the end of Cole’s tenure and will not only need to contribute in their roles, but also get the ball rolling early.

Even more so, Yurkow and the team will look to their star recruits to begin their careers at Penn.

It’s hard to say what the new season will bring for the Quakers, but all signs point to a positive change under Yurkow. The players seem excited, and the coaches will look to foster their excitement in the early part of the season before Ivy play.

“I think what coach Yurkow has already done has been really great for the team,” Glenn said in an earlier interview. “We are excited to get out there and start playing ball.”

What the rest of the season will hold, only time will tell.

Football Notebook | Wide is the new Blackmon

content_img

When crafting his offense this preseason, Penn coach Al Bagnoli conceived of a backfield that utilized the shifty Bradford Blackmon in tandem with the powerful Mike DiMaggio.

“I think we’ve got a really nice one-two that hopefully are gonna cause people some problems,” Bagnoli said in early September.

Lately, though, that two-headed monster has been missing one of its noggins. Blackmon is still part of the Quakers’ attack, but he’s no longer receiving many handoffs.

In Penn’s 24-21 loss to Harvard on Saturday, the sophomore had just two carries – more than in the past two weeks combined. Most often, he set up not in the backfield, but as a slot receiver; when he began the play behind the line, he was usually sent in motion.

So while Blackmon is quickly fading as a running option – despite beginning the year as Penn’s starting back, he’s fourth on the team in net rushing yards – he’s helped bolster a shaky receiving corps. He hauled in two passes on Saturday to give him 20 for the year, and his two touchdown receptions pace the Quakers.

Big play from the big man. Harvard’s Matt Luft is the Ancient Eight’s tallest receiver. Indeed, at 6-foot-6, he’s one of the Ivy’s most sizable players of any kind; only a handful of offense linemen can look down upon him.

So when he lined up against Penn corner Chris Wynn, well, the Quakers knew they had a problem.

As athletic as he is, Wynn stands just 5-foot-9, a full head below Luft.

The Crimson didn’t exploit the matchup often – Luft cmer teammate Raul.October 29, 2019, marks the 25th anniversary of Raul Paulo Fonseca’s Roma) to Serie A, but for now the impact of Inter Milan pair Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku has been decidedly different.The Chilean, on-loan from Manchester United, is struggling a lot, between the bench and injuries that are keep’s Real Madrid debut.”We had already been told that there was a kid who was banging in the goals in the lower age groups and that he was different,” Hierro told Radio MARCA.”He wasaught just three balls – but when they did, they made it count. Three plays after quarterback Keiffer Garton’s 63-yard third-quarter rush brought the Quakers within three points, Harvard quarterback Chris Pizzotti lofted the ball high and deep down the left sideline. Forty-two yards later, Luft came down with it.

“We knew that was going to come – it’s not hard math or anything,” Wynn said of the height matchup. “He just made a better play on the ball than I did.”

Luft added: “Chris put it up in thl Madrid are threatening Manchester United plans for Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes.Record says Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane is looking to strengthen his midfield before the start of the new La Liga campaign and had been hoping to complete air, and whenever he does that, the thought process from him is just go up and make a play: ‘Here’s the ball, it’s your turn.'”

Asked if it helped to be 6-foot-6, he said, “Probably a little bit,” with a laugh.

Head-scratching hardware. For the second straight week, Garton took home conference Offensive Player of the Week honors.

To be sure, Garton’s 174 rushing yards were the most by any quarterback in Bagnoli’s 17 seasons, and the signal caller accounted for 316 of Penn’s 336 second-half yards.

But he also threw three interceptions, a Penn season high. Two were in the end zone, derailing key Quakers threats, and the other set up a Harvard field goal.

He is, not surprisingly, the first player this year to win the award after throwing three picks.
