Philly Hoopla: Five for Five

Five Philly college hoop teams won Wednesday night, including the big win by La Salle over Xavier and the huuuuuge victory by Temple over Duke. (Saint Joseph's, Penn and Drexel were also victorious.)

So far — and we'll keep looking — we found only one day where five teams went undefeated. On Saturday, Jan 16, 1999, all Big 5 teams played at home and won. (Drexel did not play, but had won on Jan. 15 and would win again on Jan. 17.)

(If anyone has an idea for another day that might have happened, drop me an email.)

Here are those scores:

School Opponent Result
La Salle Dayton W 81-70  
Penn Colgate W 68-50
Saint Joseph's    Fordham W 82-80
Temple Rhode Island    W 76-63
Villanova Notre Dame W 86-65
