The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 15

Wednesday, February 23, 2011, 7:03 AM
If Temple had everyone healthy, I would honestly give the Owls a shot to win at Duke tonight. I think their defense is that good. But with Micheal Eric out and Scootie Randall also likely to not play, I can't see Fran Dunphy's squad having enough depth to pull off the upset at Cameron Indoor Stadium... Read more

Time for our weekly look at statistical highs and lows across the City Six. Drexel - The Dragons' defense allows the sixth-lowest effective field goal percentage in the country, but their offense's effective field goal percentage produced is ranked No. 312. - Daryl McCoy is ranked No. 18 nationally...

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 14

I had a feeling this might happen, but I'm still surprised that it happened this way. Because one voter ranked Villanova 16th on his ballot, the Wildcats fell out of the top spot in this week's ranking. Temple, which got only two first-place votes, is the new No. 1. Here's how it all played out: 1... Read more

First of all, a disclaimer: I wrote the bulk of this post during last night's games. I have updated the records and the rankings in the two tables to reflect those results. The team and individual performance statistics, however, remain just based on results through Tuesday. Also, a reminder that... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 13

Late Wednesday night update: I guess I should have waited another day for this, eh? Anyone want to make the case that Villanova shouldn't be No. 1 after losing at Rutgers? I have a hunch someone does. This week's poll is dedicated to Phil Martelli, because I know how much he loves you all and wants... Read more

Before we get to this week's stats roundup, ESPN just announced that Dick Vitale will not be part of the broadcast team for Saturday night's big Villanova-Pittsburgh game at the Pavilion. Vitale will instead be at the Ohio State-Wisconsin game. Jay Bilas, who is part of ESPN's 'College GameDay' crew... Read more

Live updates on today's college basketball action

Saturday, February 5, 2011, 10:23 AM
If you haven't quite gotten into college basketball yet this season, today is the day for you to dive into the pool. There are five games going on across the city, and you can get updates on all of them right here. I'll be at three of the five games, dashing across the city to see as much basketball... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 12

I like to think that the Schuylkill 16 is reasonably democratic. Yes, I pick out what comments to feature, but I don't tell people how to vote or what to say about the teams. So I'm going to just keep my mouth shut and let you all judge this week's ranking for yourselves. 1. Villanova, 16 points... Read more

Now that we're in February, I though it would be a good idea to switch our focus from individual accomplishments to postseason résumés. So I've put together a list of each local team's major wins and losses so far this season. Obviously the wins are weighted towards Temple and Villanova... Read more

John Giannini gets to say he told us so

Friday, January 28, 2011, 1:51 AM
When La Salle coach Dr. John Giannini benched Aaric Murray against Richmond a few weeks back, it was clear that Giannini was trying to send a message. It was not as clear, though, whether the message would get through. Perhaps now it finally has. After scoring 20 points at Rhode Island last Saturday... Read more
