With that said, let's jump into the City 6 Rankings for Week 10.
6. Drexel (4-13; 6)
Sorry Drexel fans, but the Dragons remain in the City 6 Rankings' cellar for yet another week. The Dragons snapped a seven-game losing streak 11 days ago, but followed that up with two straight losses.
Overall this week, Drexel went 1-1, losing by 19 to a decent James Madison squad before getting back in the win column with a triumph over fellow CAA cellar dweller Delaware.
The Dragons are what they are at this point, and for the moment find themselves still being fended off by UPenn for that coveted fifth spot...
5. Penn (4-9; 5)
UPenn started their week with a win over a subpar Niagara squad on the road. The Quakers followed that up by giving Villanova more of a game than I think any sane person would've predicted.
The Quakers went to the locker room at the Palestra down just two to the #5 team in the country, but in the end, Villanova proved to be too much for Penn, topping them by 15.
Give props to Penn on that Villanova game. The Quakers had the second closest game against the Wildcats of any Big 5 school this year, narrowly being edged out by La Salle's 14-point loss to Villanova earlier in the season.
4. Saint Joseph's (7-9; 4)
You take the good. You take the bad. You take them both and then you have the 2014-15 Saint Joseph's Men's Basketball team. Unfortunately for Phil Martelli, the Hawks have been more bad than good this year.
The Hawks topped a bad Fordham squad at home midweek before falling to a solid St. Bonaventure team on the road Sunday.
DeAndre' Bembry would notch a career-high 27 points in the loss to the Bonnies, but the sophomore standout continues to receive little help from his teammates. As a result, the Hawks find themselves below .500 midway through the season and in the bottom half of the City 6 Rankings.
3. La Salle (10-8; 3)
The Explorers continue to be a bit of an up-and-down team as well, but luckily for La Salle, they have a much more balanced lineup than Saint Joseph's, and as a result have compiled a 10-8 record so far this season.
La Salle dropped a game on the road to 14-2 Dayton midweek, but rebounded with a win over Fordham at home.
A test awaits the Explorers this week, as they face an 11-5 Rhode Island squad on the road, in a game that should be a good measuring stick to see where La Salle stands at the moment.
2. Temple (12-7; 2)
With Will Cummings less than 100 percent, the Owls are struggling mightily, picking up two losses this week to extend their losing streak to three, their longest of the season.
Temple took a lead as large as 13 in the second half of their midweek matchup with SMU before collapsing down the stretch, as Cummings played sparing minutes.
Cummings would then sit out the Owls' contest against Cincinnati on Saturday, as Temple was throttled by 31 points on the road.
A six-game win streak seems to be in the distant past at this point for Temple, and it is evident that Cummings is quite possibly their biggest key to success. If Cummings cannot return to his prior level of play soon, Temple could find themselves dropping in the AAC standings as well as the City 6 Rankings.
1. Villanova (17-1; 1)
Jay Wright and crew continue to roll so far this season, notching victories over Xavier and Penn this past week to improve to 17-1 on the season.
The Wildcats face a tough Georgetown squad on the road in just more than an hour, and will need to bring their A-game to come away with a win. That being said, Villanova is on a completely different level than the other Philadelphia college teams and much of the teams across the nation.
