Friday, February 25, 2011, 1:12 AM
Last weekend, we saw one of the great performances by any student section in the country this season at the St. Joe's-Temple game. The Cherry Crusade's "funeral" for the Hawk rightly got national attention for its creativity, humor and depth. If you didn't see the details of it yet, watch the video... Read more

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

Boeheim courts controversy again in postgame remarks

Tuesday, February 22, 2011, 2:53 AM
Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim's postgame press conference last night was going along quite nicely for the first five minutes or so. There were questions about the importance of the Orange's win over Villanova, how the 2-3 zone defense did, and how important Dion Waiters was down the stretch. Boeheim... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 14

Wednesday, February 16, 2011, 4:44 PM
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.
