Meet the Penn men’s basketball team of 1920. Believe it or not, this motley crew managed to win the Eastern Intercollegiate League title, which was the league Penn played in before the Ivy League was created. Good looks, team. Those knee pads are really intimidating.
Jerome Allen has officially been named Men’s Basketball coach. Allen, a Penn alum, has served as the interim coach since Glen Miller was fired in December. Under Allen’s leadership, the team fared slightly better after their winless stint with Miller, finishing 6-22 for the season. During recent weeks, Penn Athletics Director Steve Bilsky said they had narrowed the search down to nine coaches, from hundreds.
