NBC Universal, Inc.

The schedule has officially arrived for Big 5 men's basketball for the 2024-25 season.

For the second year in a row, all six NCAA Division I men's basketball programs in Philadelphia have been split into two pods of three teams. In each pod, teams will face the others at on-campus sites in a round-robin format.

The outcome of the round-robin will determine the schedule for a tripleheader, set to be held at Wells Fargo Center December 7. The first seed in each pod will compete for the Big 5 Championship, second-place teams will compete for third place and the third seeds for fifth.

The first pod features Drexel, La Salle and Temple, while the second features Penn, Saint Joseph's and Villanova.
