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.
The Wildcats traveled to the Battle for Atlantis today, as they conquered the USC Trojans. Building a big lead early, Villanova utilized a balanced attack throughout to overwhelm USC on their way to a 93-79 win.
For the second time on this young season Drexel faced a ranked opponent, and for the second time, the Dragons came up just short.

Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!
