"This agreement keeps alive one of college basketball's richest traditions," Bradshaw said in a statement.
"The spirit of camaraderie in the city of Philadelphia among the five schools is unique, and one to be celebrated and cherished."
At least four of the 10 games on the 2006-07 Big Five men's schedule will be played at one of the nation's most historic arenas, the Palestra. The first Big Five game of the men's season will be Dec. 2, when Penn hosts Villanova.
The annual men's basketball tripleheaders held at the Palestra for the last five years have been discontinued.
