Game 24: Yale 61, Penn 48

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Remember how I said I was going to get what I deserved?


Zack Rosen didn't start because of a team rules violation, and when he came off the bench two minutes into the game Yale was already up 6-0. That lead grew to 11-0 at 6:52, and the Bulldogs never looked back.

Penn cut the Bulldogs' lead to six points with 10:44 left and eight with 3:48 left. But the Quakers went 4:40 without scoring after the first push, and made only two field goals for the rest of the game after the second.

The box score is here, and the enhanced box is here. Audio of the postgame press conferences is below, and game recaps will be available on our Penn page in the morning.

(You'll note that Yale's press conference had a special guest who did his best to lighten the mood.)

Meanwhile, earlier this afternoon at the Palestra, John Chaney took the crowd on a 35-minute ride through everything you could want to hear from him at the Big 5 Hall of Fame induction luncheon.

Dick Jerardi has the details on Philly Hoops Insider. There's also a photo gallery and this great video put together by my colleagues Ryan Wixted and Litty samuel, along with Mike Kern of the Daily News.

Enjoy La Salle-Temple. I'll probably be back on here tomorrow night after all the games are over.
