Tonight's game will be the 54th meeting between Brown and Penn with the all-time series standing at 27-26 in the Bears favor. The Quakers took the first meeting of the season 73-63 in Philadelphia on 1/31. Four players scored in double-figures for the Bears but it wasn't enough as senior Jewel Clark poured in a game-high 25 points for Penn. The Bears rallied back from a 15 point second half deficit, coming to within five with just under a minute to play but the Quakers iced the victory with several free throws in the final stretch.
The Bears enter tonight's match with an 11-10 overall and 4-4 Ivy League mark, putting them in a tie for third place with Columbia. Penn has not lost an Ivy game all season, posting a perfect 7-0 record, two games ahead of second place Dartmouth.

Senior Nyema Mitchell led Brown with 19 points and eight rebounds in the loss. Princeton jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead in the opening minute of play and never looked back as Brown failed to get into a rhythm. Freshman Casey Lockwood had her fifth double-double of the season with 16 points and 11 rebounds and sophomore Katy O'Brien hit four threes for 21 points to lead the Tigers in the victory.
