For the third time in program history, the men's basketball team will compete in the NIT Season Tip-Off.
Penn will play at the John Paul Jones Arena at the University of Virginia, one of four regional sites for the tournament. The Quakers play Delaware on Monday, Nov. 12 at 9:30 p.m., following the opening game between Virginia and Fairfield. Fairfield is, of course, coached by former Princeton player and head coach Sydney Johnson.
The losers from Monday's games will play in a consolation game Tuesday at 4:30 p.m., followed by the championship game.
The winner of the South Regional will go on to play in the semifinal game at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, Nov. 21. The championship and consolation games will be held Friday, Nov. 23.
Teams that fail to advance out of regional play will participate in third- and fourth-round doubleheaders on Monday, Nov. 19 and Tuesday, Nov. 20 at the three remaining schools with the highest seeds.
The tournament is NCAA-exempt, meaning the Red and Blue will again play 31 games this season rather than 28.
Penn fans who won't be able to make it to see the Quakers in Charlottesville, Va., are in luck, as all the games will be carried on WatchESPN.
