– Eggleston led Penn with 18 points, while Tyler Bernardini also scored 16 points — but unusually for the freshman, all seven of his made field goals came from inside the three-point arc.
– Ross Morin and Caleb Holmes led Yale with 16 points each, while Flato was the key man behind Yale’s second-half rally, scoring all 13 of his points in the second half.
– The win in New Haven was only Penn’s third in the last seven years.
– The Quakers’ 39-21 halftime lead was the result of some poor shooting by the Bulldogs and some very efficient offense and rebounding by the visitors, who recorded assists on 16 of 18 made field goals, committed only two turnovers, and grabbed all 16 rebounds at the defensive end.
– After a first half that saw just 13 combined fouls assessed, the officials called a very tight game after halftime, whistling 14 personals on Penn and 17 on Yale — though the later figure was inflated somewhat by four fouls intentionally committed in the final minute.
– The Quakers will look for their first Ivy road sweep this season when it visits Brown on March 1 for an early 6:00 pm ET start, while the Bulldogs will try to avoid their second home sweep when Princeton visits Lee Amphitheater for a late 8:00 pm ET tipoff.
