Comments:

Syracuse traveled to Philadelphia to play the Penn Quakers at the Palestra. Penn had won nine straight games, and was considered the top team in Eastern basketball. Syracuse would score first on a Ken Beagle basket, and Ev Katz would make five free throws in the first eight minutes. The Orangemen would lead 9-0 before the Quakers would score, and would lead 16-9 at the half.

Late in the game, Katz and Penn captain Ed Lobley would both dive and struggle for a loose ball. Katz would injure his ankle on the play, and it was thought he would have to leave the game. However, they were able to tightly wrap his ankle, and he returned promptly to the game.[1]

Penn would fight back, but never catch up to the Orangemen. Syracuse led 25-21 with five minutes left in the game. Katz would drive past Sander, make the lay up and got a double foul. Katz would make both free throws, in addition to the field goal, for a four point possession, giving Syracuse a 29-21 lead. Penn would make three fields goals down the stretch, but it was not enough as the Orangemen won 30-27.
