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

South Florida 70, Villanova 69: Joe Juliano | Super 'Nova | Ashley Fox | Mike Kern | Sam Donnellon NEW YORK - It probably wasn't the best choice of words, all things considered.

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

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

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim's postgame press conference last night was going along quite nicely for the first five minutes or so.
