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. The team and individual performance statistics, however, remain just based on results through Tuesday. Also, a reminder that... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 13

Late Wednesday night update: I guess I should have waited another day for this, eh? Anyone want to make the case that Villanova shouldn't be No. 1 after losing at Rutgers? I have a hunch someone does. This week's poll is dedicated to Phil Martelli, because I know how much he loves you all and wants... Read more

Before we get to this week's stats roundup, ESPN just announced that Dick Vitale will not be part of the broadcast team for Saturday night's big Villanova-Pittsburgh game at the Pavilion. Vitale will instead be at the Ohio State-Wisconsin game. Jay Bilas, who is part of ESPN's 'College GameDay' crew... Read more

Penn loses a game for the history books

Sunday, February 6, 2011, 1:58 AM
It was a maple syrup kind of night at the Palestra. Outside the arena, the air was cold and the sky was gray. A light rain spat upon fans as they made their way along 33rd Street, and a thick fog rendered Center City invisible from west of the Schuylkill. Inside, there was light, and warmth. Not...

If you haven't quite gotten into college basketball yet this season, today is the day for you to dive into the pool. There are five games going on across the city, and you can get updates on all of them right here. I'll be at three of the five games, dashing across the city to see as much basketball... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 12

Wednesday, February 2, 2011, 4:10 PM
I like to think that the Schuylkill 16 is reasonably democratic. Yes, I pick out what comments to feature, but I don't tell people how to vote or what to say about the teams. So I'm going to just keep my mouth shut and let you all judge this week's ranking for yourselves. 1. Villanova, 16 points... Read more

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... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 11

Wednesday, January 26, 2011, 4:15 PM
Call it a hunch, but I don't see the top line changing much for the rest of the season... 1. Villanova, 12 points (12 first-place votes) - "If there is any doubt who is the most dominant team in this fair City, Saturday's game answered the call." (Ralph Manoppello) - "Congratulations Kroger, you've... Read more

Drexel - The Dragons' defense gives up the second fewest offensive rebounds per 100 possessions in the nation, but that same unit is ranked 337th nationally in turnovers forced per 100 possessions. - Two players are ranked in the top 30 of individual defensive rebounding percentage: Daryl McCoy at...
