    One of college basketball's greatest venues. Located on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, it hosts the Philadelphia Big 5 teams: Penn, Villanova, Temple, LaSalle, and St. Joseph's.

    Even if it's winter outside, it's summer in the Palestra. Dress accordingly.

    Most pathetic excuse for a college gymnasium ever. $0 of UPENN's 8 billion dollar endowment was spent here.

    Get here a little bit before tip-off; there's plenty of history and exhibits to take in by walking the hallways.
