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.

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."
