This coming Saturday is one of the most anticipated dates on the Philadelphia college basketball calendar, as the Palestra finally gets to host ESPN's College GameDay.
The show will precede a twinbill on 33rd Street, as La Salle faces Temple and Penn faces Saint Joseph's.
Both games have some tickets left, but not many. For the first, call Temple's sales office at 215-204-8499. If you can't get through, I was told that there might be a few tickets left on gameday at the Palestra box office. For the second, go through Penn's website.
Unfortunately, if you don't have a ticket to La Salle-Temple, you won't be able to get in the building to watch GameDay. Because of the the noon tipoff, there won't be any time between the show and the game.
