Penn Holds On to Beat Columbia - Feb 3, 2019

AJ Brodeur
New York, NY - Last year's Ivy League Champion Penn Quakers (13-7, 1-3) held off the Columbia Lions (6-12, 1-3), winning 72-70 in a tightly contested Ivy League match-up that featured 14 lead changes and 11 ties.

Penn held a two-point lead early in the contest as a solid defense and drive-and-kick offense served the Quakers well to start the game. Timely shooting by Columbia's Gabe Stefanini, who finished the first half with 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting from the field, staked the Lions to an eleven point lead midway through the first half.

With their offense stalling due to poor 3-point shooting (3-17, 17.6% in the first half), Penn looked to drive and post-up more aggressively. The Quakers cut into Columbia's lead over the balance of the first half going 11-12 at the free throw line, including a combined 6-of-6 by guards Devon Goodman and Bryce Washington and 3-of-4 by forward Max Rothschild. Despite being outscored from the field, Penn used an 11 to 0 free throw advantage to lead at halftime, 32-31.

The second half started much more physical as both teams looked to go inside to post players Patrick Tape (Columbia) and AJ Brodeur (6'8''-F) (Penn). Brodeur was particularly effective for Penn, scoring 20 of his 24 points in the second half.

Penn clung to a slim lead as the referees called the game tight early in the second half as both teams were called for a number of off-ball fouls.

As the game progressed, Columbia's guard duo of Gabe Stefanini and Quinton Adlesh caught fire and put Columbia ahead, 49-47, midway through the second half. Columbia would end up shooting 70.8 percent from the field in the second half and 58.5 percent for the game as Penn struggled to find an answer to multiple high screens for the Columbia guards.

Penn continued to attack the basket and, with 6:01 left in the second half put themselves in double bonus territory. Around the same time, Penn changed their matchups to put guard Devon Goodman on Columbia's Stefanini who was torching the Quakers and would finish as the game's high scorer with 27 points on 12-of-20 shooting.

Columbia cut the Penn lead to 66-67 with 3:42 left in the game and the game became a battle of drives and defensive stops for the remainder of the game. With 58 seconds left, and leading 72-70, Penn's AJ Brodeur drove hard down the right side of the lane but missed a contested lay-up that would have given Penn a four-point lead. Colombia couldn't score on the ensuing fast break. Still holding a two-point lead, the Quakers milked the clock and once again attacked the rim.

With the shot clock running down, Bryce Washington went hard to the basket but a tough layup high off the glass bounced off the rim and gave Columbia the last possession.

The Lions put the ball in the hands of Stefanini to tie or win the game and sent their center up for another high pick and roll. Stefanini kept the ball and attempted to drive to the basket as Penn switched on the screen but AJ Brodeur was able to force Stefanini to take a contested fall-away jumper that missed the mark and gave Penn a hard-earned 72-70 road victory.

Both teams will continue league play next weekend with Columbia facing Harvard and Dartmouth on the road and Penn traveling to play Brown and league-leading Yale.
