A quadrupleheader of hoops

I still can't quite believe what happened last night. But there's no time to linger on it, because we've got no fewer than four college basketball games in the city today.

I still can't quite believe what happened last night. But there's no time to linger on it, because we've got no fewer than four college basketball games in the city today.

Here's the lineup, with links to their respective live scoreboards:

Delaware at Drexel, 12:00 p.m. (Comcast Network)
Providence at Villanova, 2:00 p.m. (ESPNU)
Rhode Island at Temple, 4:00 p.m. (Comcast SportsNet)
Columbia at Penn, 7:00 p.m. (Comcast Network)

It's worth noting that Drexel will be without star sharpshooter Chris Fouch, who injured his left shoulder in the Dragons' loss at Hofstra on Wednesday. The team doesn't know yet how long Fouch will be out for.

I'll be at the DAC, the Liacouras Center and the Palestra today, and I'll be liveblogging Rhode Island-Temple. That game has huge NCAA Tournament at-large bid implications, especially for the Rams.

It would be neat to try to get to all four games, but I'd rather see three games in full than parts of four. So hopefully you'll be able to fill me in about what happened at the Wachovia Center when I get to North Broad Street.

I'm also missing what could be Philadelphia University coach Herb Magee's 900th career win. The Rams host Bloomfield at 4:00 p.m.

So there's quite a bit to take in today. Enjoy all the action.
