College Hoops Picks ATS, March 10: Princeton Tigers at Penn Quakers

Ryan BrennanSenior Analyst IMarch 10, 2009

Princeton Tigers (7-6, 12-14) at Penn Quakers (6-7, 10-17)

Tuesday, March 10—8:00 PM EST


Preview

The Ivy's have been decided—Cornell is heading to the Big Dance for the second year in a row. Cornell secured their bid on Saturday when they went defeated the Quakers, and rubbed it in everyone's faces on Sunday when they took down the Tigers.

So while both of these teams were taken down by Cornell last weekend, Princeton also has the chance to redeem themselves. Earlier this season, they lost in overtime to Penn.

Both teams have been impressive at times this season, but both have also had their fair share of mishaps. After starting Ivy play 4-0, the Tigers have gone 3-6 and have been upset by teams like Brown and Dartmouth.

The Quakers started the season out very slowly (1-7), and didn't start conference play out much better (1-3), but it looked like they were going to be able to salvage their season when they took down Yale and Princeton.

Unfortunately that wasn't the case, and they now sit in sixth in the Ivy's.

A Quaker win would put them in a four-way tie for third place (one of those teams being Princeton). A Tiger win would tie them with Yale for second in the Ivy's.
