Pennsylvania Quakers Preview

Penn fell to 9-12 after losing to Yale in New Haven, 74-58. The Quakers were outscored in both periods by the Bulldogs, and they’re in danger of taking a six straight loss here in Princeton. Penn is scoring 76.0 points per game, on 45.6% shooting, while allowing 71.9 ppg, and they’re currently 8th in the Ivy League with a 1-5 record in conference play.

Penn's Impact Players

  • Senior guard Clark Slajchert (17.4 ppg, 3.0 apg) has been out since the Houston matchup, and the Quakers are 1-6 during the span.  
  • Freshman guard Tyler Perkins has scored 18 points or more in three of the last six games, and he’s averaging 14.6 ppg and 5.7 rpg.  
  • Junior big Nick Spinoso has reached double figures in four of his previous five outings, and he leads the Quakers in rebounding (7.4) and assists (3.3), while scoring 10.2 ppg. 

 

Princeton Tigers Preview

Princeton improved to 16-3 after defeating Brown in Providence, 70-60. The Tigers pulled away from the Bears down the stretch, and they’ll look to build on that effort here against the Quakers. Princeton is scoring 76.5 points per game, on 46.3% shooting, while allowing 64.9 ppg, and they’re currently third in the Ivy League with a 4-2 record in conference play.

Princeton’s Impact Players

  • Sophomore guard Xaivian Lee came thru with a game-high 20 points in the win over Brown,  and he leads Princeton in scoring (17.8).
  • Second-year forward Caden Pierce has broken through here in conference play, and after grabbing double digit boards in five of the last six games, he leads the Tigers in rebounding (9.4), while chipping in 14.8 ppg. 
  • Veteran guard Matt Allocco led the way with 25 points in the road win over Dartmouth l, and he’s third on the team at 12.8 ppg.  

Pennsylvania vs Princeton Trends

  • PENN is 7-12 against the spread, with a 9-10 over/under record
  • The Quakers are 3-7 over their last ten games, and they’re 1-8 on the road this season. 
  • PRIN is 10-7 against the spread, with a 6-9-2 O/U record
  • The Tigers are 7-3 over their previous ten games, and they’re 7-0 in Princeton this season. 

Penn vs Princeton Prediction

Clark Slajchert’s absence has dramatically shifted the outlook of Penn’s season, and that trend may continue here against a Princeton team returning home for the first time in over 20 days. The Tigers took a pair of road defeats before beating Brown, and I’m confident in them bouncing back against a slumping Quakers squad, who will be wrapping up a four-game road trip here in Jersey. I’d shift the number with it being a conference bout, and back Princeton for this Ivy League battle.
