Box score | Enhanced box | Dick Jerardi | Keith Pompey | Steve Falk's photos | Jon Solomon Penn had some chances, but more than anything else this game was won by Princeton's suffocating defense. Penn's 16-for-50 night wasn't just due to bad shot selection and a few untimely misses. Credit the Tigers... Read more

A quadrupleheader of hoops

Saturday, February 13, 2010, 12:13 PM
I still can't quite believe what happened last night. But there's no time to linger on it, because we've got no fewer than four college basketball games in the city today. Here's the lineup, with links to their respective live scoreboards: Delaware at Drexel, 12:00 p.m. (Comcast Network) Providence... Read more

Game 27: Penn 79, Cornell 64

Friday, February 12, 2010, 4:40 PM
Yes, this really just happened. And no, I can't believe it either. Behind 24 points from Jack Eggleston and 22 from Zack Rosen, Penn upset two-time defending Ivy League champion Cornell at the Palestra, 79-64. The Quakers shot 56.5 percent from the field and won at home for the first time since February... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 Week 14: 'Nova unanimous

Wednesday, February 10, 2010, 8:37 PM
For the first time since December 9, Villanova is the unanimous No. 1 team in the Schuylkill 16 rankings. Temple is the unanimous No. 2, and Drexel is up to No. 3. I wonder what would have happened had Temple not lost at Richmond, but even if they had, Villanova's win at West Virginia was really impressive... Read more

Live blog transcript: Villanova 82, West Virginia 75

Monday, February 8, 2010, 6:35 PM
I'm not really one for muskets or coonskin caps, to be honest. But the atmosphere at WVU Coliseum is pretty neat, with a sea of gold shirts in the stands and that red carpet they roll out when the Mountaineers take the floor. Morgantown should be electric tonight, with both Villanova and West Virginia... Read more

Corrected after nayr83 pointed out in the comments that La Salle at Temple wasn't an official Big 5 game. The official schedule is here, if you're wondering. PROVIDENCE, R.I. - For as much as I enjoy train travel, five hours is a long time to sit and look out the window. So as my train to Boston makes... Read more

Ivy League takes no action on Penn buzzer-beater

Thursday, February 4, 2010, 4:27 AM
I have a short piece in this morning's Inquirer about the Ivy League's announcement that it basically can't do anything about Dan Monckton's game-winning buzzer-beater in this past Saturday's Penn-Brown game. After I got back from Providence, I asked the league office for a statement on whether the... Read more
