Penn was selected fourth in the preseason Ivy League poll in a vote of 17 selected Ivy League representatives.

Princeton was chosen to win the league for the first time since 2004-05. The Tigers received 12 first-place votes.

They were followed by Harvard (120 points, 4 first place) and Cornell (96, 1 first place).

Penn (6-22, 5-90 Ivy last season) received 89 votes. The Quakers have only returning first-team All-Ivy player in junior guard Zack Rosen, who is the league's leading returning scorer at  17.7 points per game,

Jerome Allen, who had the interim tag removed after leading Penn to its six wins over the second half of the 2009-10 season, begins his first full season as coach.
