In the 1980s, winning Ivy League titles and making NCAA Tournament runs were pretty normal at Penn. The Quakers finished either first or second in the Ivy League seven out of Tony Seaman’s eight-year stint.

But that level of consistency seemed to leave Penn with Tony Seaman when he departed for the Johns Hopkins job following the 1990 season.

Since Lars Tiffanys departure following the 2016 season, where the Bears made a trip to Championship Weekend, Brown hasn’t done too, too much. 

Sure, Mike Daly led them to a 10-win season in his first year in 2017. But they haven’t had a winning record in a full season since. The Bears went 6-9 and missed the Ivy League tournament in 2018 and went 7-9 in 2019, losing to Penn in the Ivy League semifinals.  Continue reading “Is Brown The Ivy Everyone Should Be Talking About?”
