A night after taking down #2 Kansas, the Villanova Wildcats were right back at it, as they faced #23 Iowa in the Battle 4 Atlantis Championship game. After overcoming early struggles, the Wildcats made a charge in the second half to force the game to overtime, where they would win by a final score of 88-83.
The Flyers got off to a great start to their 6 game road trip, and in very exciting fashion I must add. The Flyers were able to get a big win over the Nashville Predators 3-2 in a shootout. Goalie Steve Mason allowed just 2 goals on 36 shots and did not allow a single point in the shootout.
Temple was the final Philadelphia college football team to be in action this season, and were able to end a miserable season on a high note. The Owls took a 3-0 lead on a first quarter field goal (yes, they actually made a field goal), and never relinquished the lead, topping Memphis 41-21.
Penn and Lafayette played each other hard today. Neither team ever really had a sizable lead, but ultimately Lafayette prevailed and stole a 79-76 victory from the Quakers.
Villanova faced off against #2 Kansas in the Battle for Atlantis Friday night and handed the Jayhawks their first loss of the season. Ryan Arcidiacono hit a 3-pointer with just 10.1 seconds remaining to regain the lead for the Wildcats, as they would hold on to stun Kansas 63-59.
After a hearty pep talk from Mickey Mouse and Co, the Hawks went out there looking to rebound from their tough loss to LSU yesterday. The pep talk seemed to have worked as St Joe's got off to a terrific start in defeating the Saints 78-66.
After a narrow loss to #4 Arizona on Wednesday, the Dragons were back in action tonight, as they faced Alabama in the NIT Season Tip-Off. Drexel was in control in the first half, but struggled down the stretch, needing three overtimes to finally emerge with an 85-83 win.
This is the earliest the Flyers have started a home game that I can ever remember. It's almost like they were trying to make us miss the opening face-off. Close but no cigar. I stumbled out of bed at roughly 11:14 in time to see the Flyers jump on the Jets early and gain a win.
The Eagles welcome the 7-4 Arizona Cardinals to Lincoln Financial Field at 1 p.m. on Sunday in a game with massive playoff implications. Following a Cowboys win on Thanksgiving, the Eagles will need to be victorious in order to remain tied atop the NFC East.
The Hawks were back in action for the first time since a close loss to Creighton on November 19, as they faced LSU in the opening round of the Old Spice Classic. Hot shooting, especially from beyond the arc, guided the Tigers, as they cruised past the Hawks by a score of 82 to 65.
Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!
