PHILADELPHIA – The schedule is set as a new era continues in Big 5 men’s basketball for the 2024-25 season.
 
For the second straight year, all six of the city’s NCAA Division I men’s basketball programs have been split into two pods of three teams. Each team will play the others in their pod at on-campus sites in a round-robin format. From those games, the schedule will be set for a tripleheader at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, Dec. 7 with the first seed in each pod competing for the Big 5 championship, the second-place teams in each pod competing for third place, and the third seeds competing for fifth place.
 
For the 2024-25 season, Pod 1 once again features Drexel, La Salle and Temple while Pod 2 features Penn, Saint Joseph’s and Villanova. Last season, the Owls went 2-0 in their pod games and played Saint Joseph’s in the inaugural Big 5 Classic Championship Game. Temple will host Drexel on November 12 and travel to La Salle on November 30. The full schedule is below.
