The Big 5 is Back (!)

What a difference two weeks makes!

Back at the end of February, the Big 5's streak of consecutive NCAA appearances appeared to be in serious jeopardy, as LaSalle and UPenn had been declared dead, and Villanova, Temple, and St. Joe's were in serious trouble.

Instead, Temple won its way in by winning the A-10 tourney (and beating St. Joes in the final), and Villanova knocked off Syracuse in an 'elimination' game at the Big East tourney.

All were seeded in the bottom half of the bracket however, with two #12-seeds (Nova and Temple) and one #11 (St. Joe)
