ESPN College GameDay To Visit Palestra For La Salle-Temple Game

Release: 08/14/2013
Send this article to a friend Print RSS

PHILADELPHIA – ESPN College GameDay Covered  By State Farm, the eight-week national studio show that airs Saturdays, will visit The Palestra on  January 18 before La Salle takes on Temple at noon. College GameDay will begin at 10 AM on ESPNU and continues at 11 AM on ESPN. The La Salle versus Temple game will also appear on ESPN or ESPN2.

In addition to this year’s La Salle-Temple game being played at the Palestra, both schools agreed that the 2014-15 edition will also be played at The Palestra.  La Salle will be the home team this season with Temple hosting in 2014-15. The schools agreed to bring the game to The Palestra for two straight seasons for the opportunity to bring ESPN GameDay to Philadelphia.

Tickets for the game will be split evenly between the two schools and the student section behind the ESPN GameDay set will also be divided equally.

The game at the Palestra will conclude ESPN’s “My Home Court” initiative – a week-long celebration of college basketball’s greatest venues.

 “All college basketball fans watch College GameDay,” La Salle coach Dr. John Giannini said. “It’s a great honor and opportunity to be chosen from all the nation’s games to have ESPN’s coverage.

“The nation will see a great game in the most historic building in all of college basketball between two strong and tradition-rich rivals. It will also show fans everywhere the unmatched uniqueness of Philadelphia Big 5 basketball.”

The two teams shared last year’s Big 5 title with 3-1 records and are located just under five miles apart in Philadelphia. The last 31 regular season meetings have been played on campus with the last Palestra meeting being played on January 4, 1989. Thirty-three of the 113 meetings all-time have been played on Penn’s campus.

For the 10th year, Rece Davis will serve as host for College GameDay. He will be joined by analysts Jay Bilas, Digger Phelps and Jalen Rose to preview all the day’s action and discuss the biggest storylines in college basketball.

“Over the past ten years, College GameDay and the Saturday Primetime series have become a weekly showcase of the best the sport has to offer and this year’s schedule promises to deliver a collection of the biggest and best games from across the country,” said Nick Dawson, Senior Director, ESPN Programming & Acquisitions. “There is no sport with more passionate fans than college basketball and there is no more passionate setting than a Saturday on-campus with GameDay and Saturday Primetime on-site.”

La Salle returns four starters from last year’s Sweet 16 team that finished #24 in the final USA Today/Coaches’ Poll.
