Penn to play Duke and UCLA

Penn released its basketball schedule today and the Quakers will play national powers Duke and UCLA.

Penn will play UCLA on Dec. 10 in Anaheim, Calif., and will visit Duke on Jan. 1 in a nationallly televised game on ESPNU. Penn opens its season Nov. 11 at UMBC. Penn’s home opener is Nov. 14 against Temple.

For the second time in 5 years, Penn will participate in the Philly Hoop Group Classic. The exempt event will allow the Quakers to play four games that only count as one toward the NCAA limit. Thus, Penn will play 31 regular-season games this year instead of the usual 28.

Penn opens Ivy League play on Jan. 13-14 at Columbia and Cornell.
