ATLANTIC CITY - On days such as this one, Dionte Christmas says, he actually does have a conversation with himself. His teammates say that he has a conversation with them, too, but this is different. It is internal and it is honest. It has to be, especially at this time of the year. You know: Self, they're not falling today. That doesn't mean he stops shooting completely, because Christmas is the scorer who shoots more than any basketball player in the city. But there has to be an adjustment - physical, mental, all-around; subtle but still noticeable.

An upset loss at Massachusetts three weeks ago took Temple off the radar of the NCAA women's basketball tournament committee. But the Owls have bolted back as a topic of NCAA talk in a big way after yesterday's 59-49 win against George Washington at the Smith Center. The win earned Temple the second seed and a bye in the Atlantic Ten Conference tournament, which begins Friday in Charlotte, N.C. The Colonials (17-12, 9-5 A-10) will be seeded fifth. Kristen McCarthy and Shenita Landry each scored 15 points for the Owls (20-8, 11-3)

Temple is playing its best at the right moment with the stretch drive of the regular season just ahead. "The stretch that we have is really, really tough," Temple coach Tonya Cardoza said yesterday after the Owls dominated St. Louis, 76-56, in an Atlantic Ten game at the Liacouras Center. "But the type of basketball we're playing, we're prepared for it. " The Owls are one of a slew of women's basketball teams under consideration for a possible at-large bid to the NCAA tournament.

Now that Penn State has won its Big Ten title and a berth to the Rose Bowl, and coach Joe Paterno has expressed his desire to return next season, it is time to gaze ahead and also look back at what might have been. With their 49-18 drubbing of Michigan State in Saturday's regular-season finale, the Nittany Lions have at least clinched a trip to Pasadena, Calif. However, after staying at No. 8 in the Bowl Championship Series standings released last night, 11-1 Penn State still has a remote shot of sneaking into the national-championship game.

THERE WAS an athlete at the Wachovia Center who probably could have reached the criteria to earn an automatic bid to the United States men's gymnastics Olympic team. But reigning Olympic all-around champion Paul Hamm is still recovering from a wrist injury he suffered at the Visa Championships and isn't competing. No other gymnast has the all-around and specialized skill to meet the automatic bid requirement of finishing first or second overall based on the combined score of the Visa Championships (40 percent)

Watching an opponent celebrate a championship on your home turf is bad enough. It's even worse when you believe you let the game slip away. That was the reality for the Drexel men's lacrosse team last night after Hofstra scored two goals in the final two minutes of regulation to tie the game, then scored 11 seconds into overtime to win, 10-9. The Pride rushed onto Vidas Field after Thomas Dooley fired the ball past Dragons senior goalkeeper Bruce Bickford to win the Colonial Athletic Association championship and claim their reward, an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

Wings forward Athan Iannucci has become the latest Philadelphia star sporting the initials A.I. He might not be as popular as Allen Iverson or Andre Iguodala, but his nickname is gaining steam. The Wings even referred to their leading goal scorer as "the Amazing A.I. " in a recent commercial. "It's really starting to pick up momentum, the whole initial thing," Iannucci said. Iannucci's pursuit of the National Lacrosse League single-season goal record is also gaining momentum.
