Stokes, Pena save Villanova

Thursday, December 9, 2010, 12:10 AM
Raise your hand if you thought last night's Villanova-Penn game would be close. Yeah, that's what I thought. It might not have been an especially well-played game, but the 5,561 fans who came to the Palestra got their money's worth in the Wildcats' 65-53 win. (Aside: I know it was a weeknight,... Read more

Time: 7:00 p.m. EST Venue: The Palestra, Philadelphia, Pa. TV/Radio: Comcast Network/WPEN 950-AM/WXPN 88.5-FM Maybe it's just the romantic in me, but even though this game is probably going to be lopsided I still think it's a big deal. It's Villanova's only game this season at the Palestra, and to... Read more

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

Villanova, 26 points (12 first-place votes) - "I am dropping Villanova because of where they placed Tannenwald... Read more

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...
