Keith Pompey's City Six ballot

Temple remains my top Division I men’s basketball program in Philly even after Saturday’s embarrassing home loss to St. Bonaventure. I moved St. Joe’s up two spots to No. 2. Expect the Hawks to play close to their preseason expectations now that junior forward Halil Kanacevic is expected back after missing three games to attend a funeral. La Salle rounds out my top three.
