Now in its fourth year, the annual Wharton Health Care Management Department Student-Faculty Basketball Tournament has become a cherished tradition for both professors and PhD students at Wharton.

It’s not all business in Wharton’s Health Care Management Department. PhD students and faculty took a break from the classroom and took to the floor in Penn’s Rockwell Gym for their fourth annual student-faculty basketball tournament.

The 2018 tournament played out a little differently than the game has in years past. Traditionally, an all-faculty team faced off against an all-student team — but, after three consecutive years of overwhelming victories for the faculty, they decided to go with a more balanced approach.

Professors and PhDs played alongside each other as teammates on the blue and green teams. With an ending score of 29-23, they played a fiercely competitive game right down to buzzer.
