SAINT LOUIS interim coach Jim Crews won't say the Billikens won the Atlantic 10 championship for the late Rick Majerus. Some things are bigger than basketball, and Crews' respect for Majerus is one of them. Still, he sees his predecessor's imprints on all the little things his veteran players did right in beating VCU in the A-10 title game. Their hard-nosed style that left the Rams in foul trouble. Their disciplined defense. Their poise when momentum and a hostile crowd went against them.

ST. LOUIS - The St. Joseph's Hawks made a run at the end of the first half but couldn't keep up with the St. Louis Billikens in the second. The 18th-ranked Billikens blew open a two-point game at halftime en route to a 70-53 victory Wednesday night at Chaifetz Arena. "They made layups, and we didn't," said St. Joe's coach Phil Martelli, who added that his team simply didn't play well. "That's really what it was. To me, it came down to them doing a really good job. " Forward Ronald Roberts finished with a season-high 25 points for the Hawks.

St. Joseph's basketball team was looking to make a statement, the kind that can leave a favorable impression on the NCAA tournament committee. Looking to accomplish something for the first time in nearly 48 years, the Hawks instead ran into a defensive buzz saw. No. 13 St. Louis held St. Joseph's to six first-half field goals in building a 13-point halftime lead on the way to a 65-49 victory Wednesday night at Hagan Arena. That was a season-low in scoring for the Hawks, whose previous low came in a 53-52 win over Denver.

ST. LOUIS - Usually, a   down-to-the-wire   win over St. Louis that's not decided until the final minutes would feel almost like a loss to Temple. But not this one. This feels like one very enjoyable and sustaining victory. When a team desperately needs a win against a much-improved opponent, that's definitely cause for celebration. And that's what the Owls did Wednesday night after an exciting, 72-67 Atlantic Ten victory over the Billikens at the Chaifetz Center.

When Temple hosts St. Louis on Saturday, someone will be missing on the Billikens bench. Rick Majerus is no longer patrolling the sideline. The St. Louis coach died Dec. 1 of heart failure at the age of 64. "A good man," Temple coach Fran Dunphy recalled. "Just a really good guy, a great basketball guy. " Dunphy said he would likely think of Majerus when he glances at the St. Louis bench. "He was such a fixture there," Dunphy said of Majerus, who compiled a 517-215 record in 25 seasons at St. Louis, Ball State, Utah, and Marquette.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - With Michigan State's season in peril, Draymond Green turned to teammate Keith Appling during a timeout and told him to be ready. And when his chance arrived, Appling delivered. His shot, the one Green urged him to take, helped save the Spartans.l Appling's critical three-pointer with 1:34 left, a 20-foot jumper set up by Green's drive and pass, gave Michigan State a 65-61 win over Saint Louis yesterday, and thrust the top-seeded Spartans into the Round of 16 after they survived a 90-foot tug-of-war and wills with the scrappy Billikens.

La Salle coach John Giannini didn't need a box score to tell him how poorly his Explorers executed their offense Saturday against St. Louis. The Explorers committed 20 turnovers and "a lot of them were really ugly," Giannini said. The miscues gave the Billikens the upper hand in their 59-51 Atlantic Ten Conference victory that broke La Salle's 14-game winning streak at Tom Gola Arena. The Explorers (17-9, 6-5 A-10), who lost their third consecutive game and are 12-1 at home this season, showed little patience on offense against a St. Louis defense that ranks No. 1 in the conference in forcing turnovers (16.4 entering the game)

ST. LOUIS - In the last four seasons, whenever the La Salle Explorers had a late lead, you could pull out the Sharpie and mark a "W" in the books. But not Sunday afternoon at St. Louis University. Although they led for virtually all of the first 39 minutes, the Explorers were unable to close the deal and ended up losing, 68-64, in overtime to the Atlantic Ten's last-place team. It marked only the fifth time in the last 74 games since 2011-12 that the Explorers were defeated when they led with five minutes to go. The loss dropped La Salle (15-12, 7-7)

FOR THE second consecutive Saturday, Saint Joseph's had an Atlantic 10 opponent in its gym that possessed a better record. Just like the week before against Massachusetts, SJU got control of the game in the second half, almost let it get away and then won in the final moments. This time, it was St. Joe's 69, VCU 62, a win that could resonate on Selection Sunday if the Hawks keep winning from here to the finish line. SJU (16-7, 6-3 A-10) led the last 32 minutes of the game and seemed home when it led 63-50 with 6 minutes left.

SAINT LOUIS arrived on Hawk Hill with one of the country's very best defenses, three 1,000-point scorers, a school-record-tying 14-game winning streak, a 7-0 road record and a coach who was 48-9 in his two seasons. Saint Joseph's had won 11 of 13, had its own trio of 1,000-point scorers, the best field-goal percentage and three-point percentage in Atlantic 10 games and an opportunity to beat ranked opponents consecutively for the first time since 1966. The crowd at Hagan Arena was kept down by the brutal ice storm, but the students were there early, and they were loud.
