– Penn has won back-to-back games for the first time this year, and for the first time in the career of interim coach Jerome Allen.
– The game pitted two interim coaches against each other: Allen and Dartmouth’s Mark Graupe.
– Dartmouth shot 46.4 percent from the field in the first half (13-for-28) but slipped to 27.6 percent in the second (8-for-29). The Big Green finished at 36.8 percent in the game, the 14th time in 18 Division I games it has failed to hit 40 percent.
– Penn missed just one free throw in 13 attempts – it’s last one.
– The Quakers had been swept by Dartmouth last year for the first time since 1959, the Big Green’s last Ivy League-championship season.
– Ronnie Dixon had 17 points for Dartmouth, a season high and one point off his career high. David Rufful also had 17 for the Big Green.
– Penn came into the game having turned the ball over just 12 times in its last three halves, dating back to halftime at Yale. The Quakers made 17 turnovers against Dartmouth.
– The Big Green had 11 assists and 10 turnovers, just the second time it has had a plus-ratio against Division I competition this winter.
– Dartmouth did not have much of an offensive presence in the post as center Clive Weeden did not score and freshman Matt LaBove sat out the game while dealing with the after-effects of food poisoning.
– While Penn’s Jack Eggleston was just 1-for-7 from the field, he led both teams with nine rebounds and tied for the game high with three assists.
– Penn visits Harvard Saturday night while Dartmouth plays host to Princeton.
