Martelli: 'It's the right thing to do'

Wednesday, December 1, 2010, 10:58 PM
For me, the main storyline in last night's Saint Joseph's-Drexel game wasn't about any of the players. It was about Drexel getting a Big 5 team to come to the DAC. Yes, it happened two years ago with Penn, but it's not something we see very often. Dragons coach Bruiser Flint's plight when it comes... Read more

Time: 7:00 p.m. EST Venue: Daskalakis Athletic Center, Philadelphia, Pa.

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 3

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

Crunchy Numbers: Surveying the City Six

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. I can't promise that I'm going to do this every week, but I'll try to do it a few times this season. For... Read more

The Schuylkill 16 2010-11: Week 2

Wednesday, November 24, 2010, 9:05 PM
I was in soccer mode for most of the day, so I wasn't able to get to this until early in the evening. Wednesday's games were not a factor in the voting, but all of Tuesday's games were. 1. Villanova, 26 points (12 first-place votes) - "I am dropping Villanova because of where they placed Tannenwald... Read more

Game 6: Penn 74, Lafayette 65

Wednesday, November 24, 2010, 1:49 AM
It's news enough these days that Penn won a basketball game, in this case beating Lafayette 74-65 at the Palestra. And while the Leopards did not present much of a test to Penn's offense, especially in the paint, there were still two things worth noting last night. The first is that the Quakers summoned...

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
