Games 37, 38 and 39: The ascent to Madness begins

Saturday, March 6, 2010, 10:15 AM
Welcome to the best week-and-change of the year for college basketball fans. Betwen now and Friday, I expect to be covering no fewer than 17 games here on the blog. This coming Tuesday, I'll head to New York for three days at the Big East Tournament, with a slight detour Tuesday night to check out... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 Week 17: Is Penn State actually good?

Thursday, March 4, 2010, 2:15 AM
A disclaimer, first of all. The deadline for voting was before last night's games. So what you see below doesn't reflect the wins that Temple, La Salle and St. Joe's picked up, nor does it include Bucknell's loss at home to Holy Cross in the Patriot League Tournament. I've been keeping an eye on Penn... Read more

Three of the City Six teams play tonight. As none of the games are televised, why not get updates via our live scoreboards? Saint Joseph's at George Washington, 7 p.m. Massachusetts at La Salle, 7 p.m. Temple at Saint Louis, 8 p.m. Read more

Saturday scores and stats

Saturday, February 27, 2010, 11:44 AM
ITHACA, N.Y. - Greetings from courtside at Newman Arena, where Cornell can clinch at least a share of its third consecutive Ivy League championship by beating Penn. I'm tweeting from courtside, so follow along below. You'll also see updates from the Carrier Dome, where Villanova is facing Syracuse... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 Week 16: Democracy in action

Thursday, February 25, 2010, 11:00 PM
Lurking in the background of any ranking-based poll is one fluky possibility: that the team with the most votes at a certain rank won't in fact be ranked there. That's what happened this week. The last-place votes were so spread out that Delaware got more of them than any other team, but was ranked... Read more

How much was 'Nova hurt by UConn loss?

Friday, February 19, 2010, 4:21 PM
I've been wondering for a few days how badly Villanova was hurt in the rankings by Monday's loss to Connecticut, and today I finally had time to look it up. Obviously there have been games since then, but not so many that the numbers aren't still fair. The answer seems to be that the Wildcats didn't... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 Week 15: A dent in Villanova's armor?

Wednesday, February 17, 2010, 10:09 PM
Boy, this week's rankings are all over the place. Villanova and Temple are still 1-2, but the Owls snatched a first-place vote on the basis of the Wildcats' loss. Princeton is up to fifth, St. Joe's is ninth and Penn State just barely edged out Bucknell for 11th. All the way at the bottom, Penn's... 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
