I'm in the office tonight, but I'm watching the game on TV. We can also talk about Villanova, Temple or whatever else is on your mind. Read more

Here are links to tonight's scores: Temple 77, Xavier 72 La Salle 76, at Penn 57 at Drexel 78, James Madison 57 Villanova at Rutgers (8 p.m.) And here are some game preview stories: Temple...

The Schuylkill 16 Week 11: St. Joe's plateaus

Wednesday, January 20, 2010, 3:47 PM
There's a ton of stuff in the papers today. I would recommend reading Dick Jerardi's column about Lionel Simmons first, especially if you weren't in town during La Salle's glory days. There's also some breaking news this afternoon from Philly Hoops Insider: Penn's basketball team has landed 6-8, 225-pound... Read more

Crunchy Numbers: Temple, 'Nova far ahead of the pack

Tuesday, January 19, 2010, 3:41 PM
I've been working on a project over the last few days, so I haven't had time to dig too deep. But it's definitely worth noting that the only teams in the Schuylkill 16 with wins over Top 50 RPI teams are Temple and Villanova. The Patriot League could produce a local champion, but other than that,... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 Week 10: Countdown to Temple-Penn

Wednesday, January 13, 2010, 4:53 AM
Not much stuff to say this morning. Read the stories in the papers, including Dick Jerardi's column. There's also this piece with more Jerome Allen quotes in the Daily Pennsylvanian. I'll be back this evening from courtside at the Palestra for a live coverage of of Temple-Penn. It should be quite... Read more

Crunchy Numbers: 'Nova, Temple suited just fine

Monday, January 11, 2010, 2:39 PM
As Villanova gets ready to visit Louisville tonight, the Wildcats are looking pretty good in the computer rankings. For the first time this season, 'Nova is ranked 10th in both the RPI and Sagarin index. Temple is flying high too, at No. 15 in Sagarin and a gaudy No. 3 in the RPI. There are people... Read more

That's more like it

Thursday, January 7, 2010, 4:50 AM
After a weekend full of losses, last night was much more fun. All the local teams but St. Joe's won, and someone had to be on the wrong end at the Liacouras Center. Even Penn finally got its first win of the season. Here's a quick wrapup of the action. There's also postgame audio from St. Joe's-Temple... Read more

Game 19: Temple 73, St. Joseph's 46

Wednesday, January 6, 2010, 6:58 PM
Not much time for a preamble, but let's make clear from the start that this isn't the game that counts in the Big 5 standings. Still, the Liacouras Center is pretty empty as we get ready for tipoff. If you're watching at home (or if not), come on in as we get started here at courtside. And be sure... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 Week 9: Temple toppled

Wednesday, January 6, 2010, 2:16 AM
As we all know, this past weekend was a rough one for our local teams. Temple was blown out by Kansas, La Salle lost brutally at Binghamton and Penn State fell at home to Wisconsin. All three city teams in intra-Schuylkill 16 games lost them: Drexel at Delaware, Penn at Lafayette and St. Joe's at... Read more

Crunchy Numbers: New Orleans in March sounds nice

Monday, January 4, 2010, 11:12 PM
Though we heard from Joe Lunardi on Saturday, it's been a while since we last checked out Bracketology. Now seems as good a time as ever to do something about that, especially with the Boise State-TCU national championship game on TV in the background. (Oh well.) Let's start with Villanova, which...
