Or, would you prefer Quakers over Oats?
Penn traveled down to Tuscaloosa on Tuesday night, upsetting Alabama and ruining the debut of new Crimson Tide head coach Nate Oats.
The Penn men opened up the ’18-’19 season on the road against George Mason on Tuesday night. In a gutsy second half performance, the Quakers came from behind to beat the Patriots, 72-71, for big win against a team that entered the contest ranked #116 by KenPom and #120 by Bart Torvik. Unfortunately, Ryan Betley, the Red & Blue’s leading scorer and a second team All-Ivy player in ’17-’18, was injured early in the game and appears to be lost for the season.
Around the five minute mark, Betley took an inbounds from Devon Goodman. As he was driving the baseline, his right leg went out from under him and he collapsed to the ground. After the Penn trainers spent several minutes with Betley, he was helped into the locker room without being able to put any pressure on his right leg. He later returned to the bench with a brace on his right leg.
