Wednesday, December 1, 2010, 3:48 PM
With St. Joe's at Drexel tonight and the Holy War coming up Friday, there is plenty of smack talk to go around in this week's poll. So let's get right to it. 1. Villanova, 25 points (18 first-place votes) - "Villanova is still waiting to run their first half-court set of the season." (Andrew... Read more

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.

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
