The Penn women’s basketball team is home for a second weekend in a row, hosting games against Yale and Brown at The Palestra. Tip-off for both games is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Saturday’s game against Brown marks senior night. The Quakers’ lone senior Kim Franklin will be honored at halftime for her four-year commitment to Penn basketball.
But first, the Quakers will face off with the only Ivy League team Penn has notched a win over this season, when Yale (7-16, 5-5 Ivy) comes to town for a re-match on Friday.
Sophomore Sarah Bucar earned the team’s sole double-double of the season in the win over the Bulldogs earlier this year, but the Quakers (4-20, 1-8 Ivy) have had trouble duplicating that success in the two games since then.
On Saturday, the Quakers will look for the win over a last-place Brown squad for senior night.
In their meeting earlier this season, Penn fell to the Bears (2-22, 1-9 Ivy) after the Quakers’ shooting went ice-cold in Providence, R.I.
Freshman Kim Adams scored a career-high 17 points in that game, and Penn will be looking to the guard to provide a spark again this week.
Adams’ pair of double-digit performances last weekend earned her co-Ivy League Rookie of the Week honors.
Adams is the Quakers’ third leading scorer despite never having started a game, but junior Carrie Biemer maintains the top spot in Penn scoring, netting 12.9 points per contest.
The Quakers will have to look out for the Brown scoring duo of Shae Fitzpatrick and Sadiea Williams that burned Penn for 25 points in the last meeting.
