What Penn men's basketball needs for success in Saturday's matchup with Harvard

By Brevin Fleischer 8 hours agoJunior guard AJ Brodeur will likely be a thorn in Harvard's side when the two teams meet in Saturday's Ivy League Tournament semifinal.

4 seed in this year's Ivy League Tournament, but any opponent would be wary of the Quakers the way they've been playing lately.

Although the Quakers have lost to the Crimson twice this year, by scores of 75-68 on Feb. 16 and 59-53 just two weeks ago, none of the blame can be placed on Penn’s First-Team All-Ivy performer.

The junior forward has been especially dominant against Harvard this year, amassing 47 points, 14 rebounds, and six assists in the two previous matchups.

Harvard is one of the best three-point shooting teams in the conference, knocking down triples at an impressive 37.3 percent clip.

If Saturday's game becomes as close down the stretch as the first two Penn-Harvard contests, every point will make a difference, especially from the line.
