Friday, March 11, 2011, 2:17 AM
NEW YORK - Welcome to another crazy day on the college basketball landscape. During the afternoon and early evening, many eyes in the Northeast will be trained on Atlantic City, as the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 Tournament are played at Boardwalk Hall. Then, once the sun goes down, attention... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 17

Thursday, March 10, 2011, 4:03 PM
NEW YORK - Sorry this is a day late. I was going to post it yesterday, but then the refereeing mess happened in the Rutgers-St. John's game so I decided to write about that. I should note that ballots were cast before that game, so they don't reflect Rutgers' loss. But if you read all the way to the... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 16

Wednesday, March 2, 2011, 7:51 PM
There are some very upset Villanova fans out there, in case you haven't heard... 1. Temple, 25 points (11 first-place votes) - "They deserve it and got shafted in the national rankings. A clear dis of Philadelphia basketball, not to be taken lying down." (Patrick Flannery) 2. Villanova, 70 points... Read more

Crunchy Numbers: Why Villanova fans should back away from the ledge

Tuesday, March 1, 2011, 10:17 PM
Now that it's March, I'd like to take a bit of a different approach towards our weekly stats roundup. Specifically, I'd like to tell Villanova fans to back away from the ledge and breathe. Despite the mass outbreak of paranoid hysteria on Lancaster Ave., I find it very hard to believe that the Wildcats... Read more

A different kind of Big Dance

Friday, February 25, 2011, 1:12 AM
Last weekend, we saw one of the great performances by any student section in the country this season at the St. Joe's-Temple game. The Cherry Crusade's "funeral" for the Hawk rightly got national attention for its creativity, humor and depth. If you didn't see the details of it yet, watch the video... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 15

Wednesday, February 23, 2011, 7:03 AM
If Temple had everyone healthy, I would honestly give the Owls a shot to win at Duke tonight. I think their defense is that good. But with Micheal Eric out and Scootie Randall also likely to not play, I can't see Fran Dunphy's squad having enough depth to pull off the upset at Cameron Indoor Stadium... Read more

Time for our weekly look at statistical highs and lows across the City Six. Drexel - The Dragons' defense allows the sixth-lowest effective field goal percentage in the country, but their offense's effective field goal percentage produced is ranked No. 312. - Daryl McCoy is ranked No. 18 nationally...

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
