A Report From Penn's Rockwell Gym
image
As Villanova was clawing its way through the NCAA March Madness brackets to eventually capture the national title, Penn's annual Wharton Health Care Management Department Student-Faculty Basketball Tournament took to the floor in Penn's Rockwell Gym to demonstrate its own kind of grit and courtsmanship. In action out on the court (above) PhD student Stuart Craig rockets the ball through the upstretched hands of PhD student Evan Saltzman to fellow green team member Law School Assistant Professor David Abrams.

In an effort to address the fact that every past game has been won by the faculty team, this year's competition was organized differently. Each team was made up of a mix of faculty, PhD students and LDI staffers. Displaying this year's team shirts (above, left) are Gaëlle Beltran-Gremaud, LDI Managing Director, and Puja Upadhyay, LDI Policy Coordinator. Above, right, members of the Green team shoot some practice shots before the tipoff: [l to r] Wharton PhD students Jong Lim, Benjamin Ukert, and Amy Bond.

Levitating in an almost balletic move (above), Wharton Assistant professor Matthew Grennan (green) and PhD Student Sarah Dykstra (blue) strain for the ball. Above, right, chasing the rebound down the court are Ashley Swanson, Amy Bond, David Abrams, Guy David, Vicki Chen, Sarah Dykstra, and Jong Lim.
