Filling the Palestra
I was there for the Temple-Penn men's basketball game last season, and the venue was definitely not filled to capacity, which is sad, because it's such a great place to watch a basketball game. A ranked Philly team couldn't draw a crowd, and routine appearances by Denzel Washington couldn't either. I know Penn wasn't doing well last season (though they did beat Cornell), so that's going to affect attendance, but I still can't understand why students wouldn't want to go to games in such a fantastic place. Does Penn need to do better marketing or promotions or something?
