Crunchy Numbers: Surveying the City Six

Tuesday, November 30, 2010, 5:00 PM
I had a bit of extra time to put together this week's stats roundup. So in addition to the usual table, I decided to put together some of the team statistics that stand out so far this season. I can't promise that I'm going to do this every week, but I'll try to do it a few times this season. For... Read more

Wednesday, November 24, 2010, 9:05 PM
I was in soccer mode for most of the day, so I wasn't able to get to this until early in the evening. Wednesday's games were not a factor in the voting, but all of Tuesday's games were. 1.

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 1

Wednesday, November 17, 2010, 9:00 AM
It did not take long for the voting to become a head-to-head contest for the top spot between Villanova and Temple. All of the No. 1 votes cast this week went to the Wildcats or the Owls, and they were spread out pretty evenly. One quick note before we get to the rankings: I'll be at the Pavilion... Read more
