St. Joe's Carr to sit out

Thursday, February 26, 2009, 6:03 PM
Saint Joseph’s senior guard Tasheed Carr won’t play in tonight's game against Atlantic 10 leader Xavier at the Palestra. Carr, averaging 13.0 points and shooting a team-best 40.2 percent from the arc, suffered what the school is terming a ``mild concussion’’ at practice on Tuesday... Read more

What a staff at Temple

Thursday, February 26, 2009, 12:48 PM
I thought I would take this opportunity to bring to light all the hard work and dedication that our staff puts into the success of the Temple basketball program. The head coach is the one who gets most of the attention as we go about our seasons and our careers. The reality is that, like most things... Read more

The City Story

Thursday, February 26, 2009, 8:28 AM
...I am probably in the minority on this, but I really liked Villanova’s win at DePaul last night. Look, they have the Internet on campus. The Wildcat players knew DePaul had lost 14 straight. Did not seem to be much atmosphere in the arena. After all the games in front of giant crowds with big... Read more

Drexel in the homestretch

Wednesday, February 25, 2009, 12:24 PM
We’re in the homestretch with only two games remaining on our schedule. On Wednesday, Northeastern comes to the DAC in a real pivotal game for both teams. Northeastern has had a real good year and are a game in front of us, tied for second in the CAA. It should be a tough battle, just like it... Read more

La Salle's rough stretch

Monday, February 23, 2009, 12:05 PM
We just finished what I feel was our poorest week of the season. Explanations are very difficult and theories are too numerous to go in to. It is especially disappointing because our fan support was great Sunday. I know we can and will play better. For some strange reason we play better away from... Read more

Bobble head for Christmas

Friday, February 20, 2009, 2:05 PM
This Sunday Temple will celebrate one of the finest young men to wear the Cherry and White Dionte Christmas in a very unique way – his very own bobblehead. This is the first time that Temple has honored a student-athlete with a bobblehead and Dionte is very deserving of this day. Dionte truly... Read more

St. Joe's Bench Situation

Thursday, February 19, 2009, 3:31 PM
...It was about this time last year when a much more offensively talented Saint Joseph’s team, apparently on its way to an easy at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament after winning six straight, culminating with a rout of Villanova, hit the wall and promptly lost five of seven. Those Hawks recovered... Read more

'Nova working for NCAA seeding

Tuesday, February 17, 2009, 4:22 PM
So, what are we to make of Villanova’s 19-point loss at West Virginia last Friday? It happens. Just ask Louisville, which got clubbed at Notre Dame by 33. If you looked at Villanova’s schedule way back when, you would’ve circled the trip to Morgantown as a likely loss anyway. Just... Read more

Temple's NCAA chances

Monday, February 16, 2009, 6:21 PM
Not that long ago it looked like Temple’s only chance of getting back into the NCAA Tournament was to win the Atlantic 10 once again. Upon further review ... The Owls are 15-9, having won three straight since a loss at Xavier. They have six games left before the A-10 tourney, starting Wednesday... Read more

Challenging week on road for Owls

Thursday, February 12, 2009, 3:44 PM
This week is a very challenging week for our basketball program as we leave the Liacouras Center to take on two of the top teams in the Atlantic 10 Conference, Saint Joseph’s and Duquesne. Overall, winning on the road in the Atlantic 10 is a difficult proposition. Those teams that are able to... Read more
