Bad Shooting Night KOs Penn Quakers

The University of San Francisco (and not your dad's or big brother's or grandfather's USF, for that matter, as there are no Bill Russells, K.C. Joneses or Bill Cartwrights on this Dons team) beat Penn last night in The City, 65-61. The Quakers, who turned the ball over less and had more assists, normally an indicator of a good performance, rebounded badly and shot poorly, both from the line (10-18, with reserve F Mark Zoller shooting 4-9) and from behind the arc (5-20, with ace swingman Tim Begley shooting 3-9 and promising soph 2G Ibby Jaaber shooting 0-4). Click here to see the box score and here for the wire story. The Quakers are 4-5 and play 5 winnable games in the next 20 days against Illinois-Chicago, Rider, Siena, Lafayette and St. Joseph's. How well the Quakers fare in those games will give Quaker fans and rivals and indication as to how formidable this Penn squad will be in the Ivy race.
