And so it’s come to this.
Big 5-rivals, Temple and Saint Joseph’s, will vie for the Atlantic Ten Conference Championship at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. tonight at 6 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN.
During the regular season, visiting St. Joe’s won the first round, beating the Owls by a point at the Liacouras Center.
Temple countered by defeating the Hawks by a point at the Palestra in the second meeting.
This time, the winner will receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
It’s all on the line.
Also check out Broad & Cecil for audio and a photo slideshow that – hopefully – will be up and ready for consumption by tomorrow morning.
