The Penn Quakers visit Jadwin Gymnasium for a Tuesday college basketball  bout with the Princeton Tigers.

The Penn Quakers are at the top of the Ivy League standings for now with wins in six of seven after downing the Yale Bulldogs 59-50 as a 5.5 point favorite. Penn did not light up the scoreboard on 37.7% shooting but that was a winning effort with the Bulldogs held to only 33.9% accuracy.

Caleb Wood paced the Quakers offense with 14 points and seven boards on 5-12 from the floor  followed by Antonio Woods with 13 points and four yanks on 5-13 shooting. Penn received 12 points and six boards from Ryan Betley on 4-8 from the field while Max Rothschild added ten points and eight rebounds on 5-11.

The Princeton Tigers four straight before the good times ended in a 102-100, overtime loss to the visiting Brown Bears. Both teams shot the basketball well with Brown holding a 57.9?%-55.1% shooting advantage.

Devin Cannady topped the Tigers offense with 27 points and six pulls on 10-17 shooting and 4-5 at the stripe followed by Myles Stephens with 23 points and five yanks on 8-11 accuracy. Sebastian Much and Amir Bell gave Princeton 12 points apiece and a combined 17 rebounds while Aaron Young chipped in with ten points.

Over is 7-1 in Penn last 8 road games. Over is 7-2-1 in Princeton last 10 vs. Ivy League and under is 8-3 in Princeton last 11 Tuesday games and under is 5-2-1 in Princeton last 8 home games. Under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Princeton and road team is 14-6-1 ATS in the last 21 meetings.

Penn might be the best team in the Ivy League but beating the Tigers on their home floor won’t be easy…

Pick:
Princeton +5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
