Get ready for a classic college basketball showdown tonight at the Palestra on the University of Pennsylvania campus. If you’re looking for a solid Monday night activity, do yourself a favor and head over to one of the most historic sporting venues in America.

Since its opening in 1927, The “Cathedral of Basketball,” as the Palestra is known, has hosted more games, more visiting teams and more NCAA tournaments than any other facility. And the most historic rivalry in the Ivy League is Penn-Princeton. The Quakers and Tigers are meeting for the 225th time on Monday night with Penn holding a 122-102 advantage. Princeton, however, has won the last five.

On the year, Penn is 2-0 in the Ivy League; Princeton enters at 1-1. The winner of the Ancient Eight gets an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Meanwhile, Harvard looms as the #23-ranked team in the country.

Penn-Princeton
When: Monday, January 30, 7 p.m.
Where: The Palestra, University of Pennsylvania
Cost: Tickets $14-20
