What Jack Said, What Jack Meant

A warning from Penn forward Jack Eggleston comes true.

What Jack Said, What Jack Meant

(With apologies to Eagletarian for stealing the title of one of its regular features.)

"They got a first-hand glimpse of what it's like to play in the Ivy League. And the next lesson is what it's like to play in a back-to-back. We don't have much time to celebrate the victory. We've got to worry about it tonight, and then it's on to Dartmouth tomorrow."

Those were Penn forward Jack Eggleston's words to me last night after the Quakers beat Harvard.

I think we call Dartmouth's 63-60 win tonight a lesson.

At the other end of the floor, Dartmouth forward Alex Barnett - who might just be the best player in the Ivy League right now - scored 24 points, while frontcourt partner Dan Biber added 17.

Barnett did not turn in the best performance of the day by a player opposing a Big 5 team, though. That honor goes to Richmond's David Gonzalvez, who scored 36 points on 11-for-16 shooting against Temple. But that wasn't nearly enough to beat the Owls, who had a 40-25 advantage in rebounds and got double figures in scoring from all five starters in a 74-65 win.
