PHILADELPHIA - After returning to the win column last weekend at Yale, Penn returned home to The Palestra on Friday night to play host to the visiting Big Green of Dartmouth. A win streak was not in the cards for the Red and Blue as Dartmouth jumped out to a 14-point lead at the half and never looked back, taking their sixth Ivy League win of the season, 62-47. With the loss, Penn is now 4-19 overall and 1-7 in Ancient Eight play.
The Quakers got as close as10 points when Caitlin Slover converted a jumper in the paint and added the free throw for the three-point play. The Big Green countered with five-straight points to extend the lead to 15, the ultimate final margin of victory.
Kim Adams and Carrie Biemer led the way for Penn with 13 points apiece. Adams was 5-of-6 from the field, including a perfect 3-of-3 from beyond the arc. Biemer added a trio of three-pointers herself to go with her team-high six rebounds. Sarah Bucar had only three points on the night, but added six boards and ran the offense well with seven assists - equaling her season-high set in November against Rider.
The Quakers return to the court Saturday night as they host Harvard at The Palestra at 7 p.m. Tomorrow is Family Night - Families can purchase four game tickets, four hotdogs, four small sodas and four small popcorns for $24.
