Pennsylvania Quakers Rundown

Penn dropped to 9-15 after losing to Brown in Philly, 71-64. The Quakers were outplayed by the Bears in both halves, and they’ll attempt to complete the season sweep of the Big Green this Friday. Penn is scoring 73.3 points per game, on 44.4% shooting, while allowing 71.9 ppg, and they’re currently 7th in the Ivy League with a 1-8 record in conference play.

Penn’s X-Factors

  • Senior guard Clark Slajchert (17.4 ppg, 3.0 apg) returned in the Yale matchup, and his presence will be huge for this weekend spot against Brown. 
  • 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. 

Dartmouth Big Green Rundown

Dartmouth fell to 5-17 after losing to Cornell in Ithaca, 89-80. The Big Green were unable to keep up with the Big Red down the stretch, and they’ll attempt to dodge a fifth straight defeat here versus the Quakers. Dartmouth is scoring 61.2 points per game, on 40.1% shooting, while allowing 72.8 ppg, and they’re currently last in the Ivy League with a 1-8 record in conference play.

Dartmouth’s X-Factors

  • Senior forward Dusan Neskovic hit the 20-point mark in the win over Brown, and he  leads Dartmouth in scoring (14.&).
  • St. Louis native Brandon Mitchell-Day led the way with 22 points in the Brown victory, and he leads the Big Green in rebounding (6.1), while scoring 10.5 ppg.

Pennsylvania vs Dartmouth Trends

  • PENN is 8-14 against the spread, with a 10-12 over/under record
  • The Quakers are 1-9 over their last ten games, and they’re 1-9 on the road this season. 
  • DART is 7-12-1 against the spread, with a 5-14-1 O/U record
  • The Big Green are 1-9 over their previous ten games, and they’re 5-5 in Philadelphia this season. 

Penn vs Dartmouth Prediction

Last place in the Ivy League will be up for grabs when Penn makes the trip to Dartmouth, and something has to give for the visitors. The Quakers have fallen all the way off this season, as they’re lone win in conference play came over a struggling Big Green squad, but after beating them by nearly 30 last month, I do believe they’ll stop the bleeding and capitalize on the matchup. Penn has been very shaky, so I’d tilt their margin, and back them for this Ivy League matchup.
