ESPN College GameDay Coming to The Palestra for Temple-La Salle

The last time College GameDay was in town

This is cool. Because I’m a snob, I think that every College GameDay in Philadelphia should include Villanova… but still, this is cool: ESPN College GameDay is coming to The Palestra for Temple-La Salle on January 18.

From La Salle:

Tickets for the game will be split evenly between the two schools and the student section behind the ESPN GameDay set will also be divided equally.

The game at the Palestra will conclude ESPN’s “My Home Court” initiative – a week-long celebration of college basketball’s greatest venues.

Oddly, the game won’t be ESPN’s featured matchup that day. The show will air at 10 a.m. and the game will be at 12 p.m., rather than the usual prime time start at College GameDay sites.

The night game that night is Louisville-UCONN.

    When it comes to the shrines of college hoops, the Palestra is right up there with the likes of Cameron, Pauley Pavillion, Rupp Arena, Assembly Hall and Allen Fieldhouse. I’m glad College GameDay is coming to town.

    Villanova tried to destroy to Big 5, one of the greatest college basketball series ever. Villanova sucks. Jay Wright sucks. The Main Line sucks.

    Go Owls.

    I wonder if coach Wright is looking at the in coming soccer freshman girls roster for a new girl to fuck

    Temple vs. LaSalle aka North Philly vs the Northeast, all they need is St. Joe’s / Delco to play winner and you’ve got the three trashiest areas covered.
