Rosen Leads Penn in Rout of Yale

The Penn Quakers (19-11,11-2 Ivy) pulverized Yale in a conference matchup, 68-47. Penn was led by senior guard Zach Rosen, who put up 20 points in last nights matchup while logging 30 minutes.

At the end of the first half, Penn led by only eight, but the Quakers came out of the half and went on a scorching 20-0 run in which Rosen scored 8 of his 20 points. The Bulldogs never came back.

Senior Zack Rosen shone again, scoring 20, and made an even stronger case for Ivy League POY.

The star performers in this game were Penn guard Zach Rosen, Yale guard Jeremiah Kreisberg, and Penn guard Rob Belcore. Rosen and Belcore, seniors, both played their last game at the Palestra last night, and they were not going to go with out a fight. Rosen scored 20 points in the game, and Belcore played shut down defense on Yale’s center, Greg Mangano, while scoring 11, dishing out 5 assists, and grabbing 5 rebounds. For Yale, Kreisberg scored ten points along with Mangano’s ten.

Penn’s NCAA tournament hopes are still alive with pounding of Yale. With a win over arch-rival Princeton on Tuesday, they will get the opportunity to play a one-game playoff against top ranked Harvard, which currently sits a half-game ahead of Penn, for the Ivy League’s automatic tourney berth.

If the Quakers lose, then Harvard will get that berth automatically and Penn will have to wait until Selection Sunday, where their at-large hopes would be slim to none.
