Bringing in coach Glen Miller from Brown, Penn was able to deal with the transition quite easily behind four returning starters including Jaaber, the reigning Ivy League Player of the Year. The senior guard can do just about everything, creating a shot from anywhere while also being a lock-down defender on the other side. However, he has struggled with his shot, shooting 31 percent (33-of-108) on 3-pointers. Zoller helped pick up his teammate, raising his scoring average more than five points from the previous season. A first-round loser in the NCAAs each of the previous two seasons, the Quakers are not expected to end that slump anytime soon, losing by a combined 56 points in their two meetings against ranked teams during the regular season - Syracuse and North Carolina. NEXT GAME: Thursday vs. (3) Texas A&M at Lexington, Kentucky
