Crunchy Numbers

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, but I don't think they'll be the only City Six squads playing in postseason tournaments.

Drexel

Pomeroy Top 50 wins: 1 (No. 17 Louisville away)
Pomeroy 300+ losses: None

La Salle

Pomeroy Top 50 wins: None
Pomeroy 300+ losses: None

Penn

Pomeroy Top 50 wins: None
Pomeroy 300+ losses: 2 (No. 316 Manhattan road, No. 323 Marist road)

Saint Joseph's

Pomeroy Top 50 wins: None
Pomeroy 300+ losses: None

Temple 

Pomeroy Top 50 wins: 2 (No. 14 Maryland neutral*, No. 15 Georgetown home)
Pomeroy 300+ losses: None

* - Pomeroy classifies the Maryland game as "semi-neutral" because it was played in Washington instead of College Park. I wonder how he'll classify the return game at the Palestra next season.

Villanova

Pomeroy Top 50 wins: 5 (No. 38 Temple home, No. 27 Cincinnati home, No. 17 Louisville home, No. 14 Maryland home, No. 19 Syracuse road)
Pomeroy 300+ losses: None
