The Schuylkill 16 Week 18: Complex inferiority

Tuesday, March 9, 2010, 12:50 AM
Over the last few days, there's been a rather amusing spat going on between Temple and Villanova fans in the comments here and on Philly Hoops Insider. The question, of course, is which team is better; the answers have been just as predictable. From what I can tell, the Villanova fans' argument generally... Read more

Monday, March 8, 2010, 4:13 PM
A report from SportsNet New York's Adam Zagoria this morning that interim Penn coach Jerome Allen "will officially be named the program’s full-time coach before the Final Four" generated a no comment response from Penn athletic director Steve Bilsky this afternoon.

More from Ed Rendell and Bob Weinhauer

Despite what I wrote in the Inquirer this morning, there definitely were not 2,335 people in the Palestra last night.

The Schuylkill 16 Week 17: Is Penn State actually good?

Thursday, March 4, 2010, 2:15 AM
A disclaimer, first of all. The deadline for voting was before last night's games. So what you see below doesn't reflect the wins that Temple, La Salle and St. Joe's picked up, nor does it include Bucknell's loss at home to Holy Cross in the Patriot League Tournament. I've been keeping an eye on Penn... Read more

Live updates: Villanova at Cincinnati

Tuesday, March 2, 2010, 6:35 PM
I'm not yet ready to say that Villanova is in trouble, because they still have plenty of opportunities for good wins before Selection Sunday.
