6. Penn (0-5; 6)
To say Penn is struggling to start the season would be an understatement. The Quakers are off to an 0-5 start and have done little to impress.
Penn fell Saturday afternoon to Wagner by a score of 64-61 after losing to Big 5 rival Temple earlier in the week. The Quakers have seen Tony Hicks and Darien Nelson-Henry put up solid numbers so far, but have also seen their lineup take a big hit with freshman Mike Auger out for an unspecified period of time following an injury suffered in last week's loss to Lafayette.
5. Drexel (2-4; 5)
Drexel won their only game of the week in blowout fashion this afternoon, as the Dragons topped Southern Miss 59-36 to pick up their second win of the season.
The Dragons have suffered two of their four losses this season by less than three points, which leaves many questioning where this team would be without injuries to Kazembe Abif and Major Canady.
One of the few positives for the Dragons so far this year has been the play of Damion Lee. After missing all but five games last season with an injury, Lee appears to be back and better than ever, as the junior is averaging 21 PPG through six games so far this season.
4. Saint Joseph's (3-3; 4)
The Hawks went 1-1 this week with an overtime win over LIU Brooklyn and a three-point loss to Western Kentucky.
Saint Joseph's has shown their youth through the first six games of the season, as the Hawks have gone just 3-3. If you take away the 52-point loss to #13 Gonzaga, the Hawks' only other two losses have come by a combined four points. Unfortunately for Phil Martelli and his squad, they haven't been winning by much either.
3. Temple (4-2; 3)
Temple went 2-0 on the week, topping Big 5 rival Penn earlier in the week before putting together a strong second half in a win over LIU Brooklyn today.
The Owls have a long way to go offensively, but the defense has improved immensely from a year ago. Temple will face three Big 5 opponents in three of their next four games, after which we should have a better idea as to where the Owls stand in the City 6.
2. La Salle (4-2; 2)
La Salle put together a 1-2 week, but there were plenty of positive takeaways.
The Explorers suffered their first defeat of the season Friday night against #8 Virginia. After looking totally outmatched in the first 30 minutes of play, La Salle turned it on, cutting the Cavaliers' lead to as little as four with less than two minutes remaining. The Explorers would fall 64-56 to the Cavaliers in the end, but showed toughness in their ability to battle back against a top-flight squad.
La Salle would follow up that loss with a 68-55 loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday, but the Explorers came out of the week having proved they can compete with anyone on their schedule.
1. Villanova (6-0; 1)
Villanova finally started to live up to some of their potential this week, as the Wildcats went 3-0, with two wins over Top 20 opponents. The Wildcats dominated #14 VCU by a score of 77-53 and followed that up the next day with a 60-55 win over Michigan.
Villanova put together a 31-point win over Delaware earlier today as well, but it was their wins earlier in the week that proved they are the top City 6 team and can compete with anyone on a national level.
