Play game one on Friday evening and the championship on Sunday afternoon. I just don’t see how it makes sense for the rest of the league to allow Penn this sort of advantage, both in recruiting and in having the home court advantage.

The Palestra will still be the cathedral and part of the recruiting pitch whether the tournament is there or not. The extra publicity can’t hurt, of course, but the fact the tournament is there doesn’t make the place. The Big Five and the history of the venue have always been part of the pitch.
