The Penn Quakers and Princeton Tigers meet Saturday in the college basketball Ivy League Tournament Semifinal at the Jadwin Gymnasium. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The Penn Quakers are averaging 75.1 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 71.8 points on 41.7 percent shooting. Jordan Dingle is averaging 23.6 points and 2.1 assists, while Clark Slajchert is averaging 13.5 points and 3.1 rebounds.

The Penn Quakers are allowing 32.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.5 rebounds per game.
The Princeton Tigers are averaging 76 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 68.6 points on 42 percent shooting. Tosan Evbuomwan is averaging 14.5 points and 6.2 rebounds, while Ryan Langborg is averaging 12 points and 3.1 rebounds.

The Princeton Tigers are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 71.2 percent from the free throw line. The Princeton Tigers are allowing 32 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.9 rebounds per game.
The Quakers are 4-1-2 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Quakers last 6 Saturday games. The over is 7-2 in Tigers last 9 overall. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Princeton Tigers not only beat Penn in both meetings this season, but they’ve won the last 8 meetings overall. I’d obviously need more to take the Quakers seriously here. Princeton has owned Penn over the years and wins in the favorite role by an average of 8 points. I’ll lay the small chalk.
