Just two days ago, the thought of St. Bonaventure winning at Temple would have been ridiculous. You would get more people to believe Philly would have 60-degree weather in January one week and snow the next. But strange things have been happening lately, basketballwise and weatherwise. Take Saturday, for example. Host Rhode Island beat Temple, 72-58, in front of a national cable television audience. It was the first time the Owls had lost to the Rams in 24 games, dating back to the 1940-41 season.

Temple was well-rested and playing at home last time. St. Bonaventure was well-rested and playing at home this time. St. Bonaventure was coming off an emotional game last time. Temple was coming off an emotional game this time. Temple hammered St. Bonaventure last time. Guess what happened this time? The Bonnies upset Temple, 73-55, last night before 5,902 in Reilly Center. When Temple breezed past St. Bonaventure by 15 points in Philadelphia last month, the Owls had three days off between home games, while the Bonnies were coming off a two-point, double-overtime heartbreaker at St. Joseph's barely 40 hours earlier.

Chad Hetrick, one of the anchors of Shawnee's defense, has signed a letter of intent and will attend St. Bonaventure University on a partial soccer scholarship. Hetrick said yesterday that he signed with the Atlantic Ten school last week. A two-year varsity performer, he first was seen by St. Bonaventure at a November showcase in Middletown, N.J., while playing with his club team, the Medford Strikers. "I really liked the school, and the coach [Bill Brady] showed a lot of interest in me," said Hetrick, who has a 3.3 grade point average and has scored 1,210 on the Scholastic Assessment Test.

Jim Boyle's intensive midseason camp might be beginning to pay dividends, but it still isn't producing victories on a consistent basis. Last night at the Reilly Center, the Hawks took an early lead against St. Bonaventure, but they couldn't hold on as the more experienced Bonnies prevailed, 70-65. Still, Boyle saw encouraging signs in his Hawks, who had won their first game against Penn after Camp Boyle. "On a scale of 1 to 10, we were an 8 tonight," Boyle said. "Compared to the way we've been playing, this wasn't a bad effort.

SAINT JOSEPH'S forward James Demery came up with a steal had a breakaway layup with 7:25 remaining in the game. His team was down seven, and could not seem to get any closer. The bucket would have put momentum squarely on the side of St. Joe's, but instead, he slipped and turned it over. It immediately led to a corner deep ball from St. Bonaventure's Jaylen Adams on the other end that pushed the Bonnies' lead to double digits for the first time. It was just one of the daggers provided by Adams in the final minutes of the Hawks' 83-73 loss to St. Bonaventure at Hagan Arena on Wednesday night.

More than 5,200 frenzied St. Bonaventure fans stood and roared their approval last night as the final buzzer sounded at the Reilly Center. And their team had lost. It was that kind of game. That it took a marvelous baseline drive by Nate Blackwell with 5 seconds left to squash the Bonnies' upset hopes was fitting. The play that proved decisive in the Owls' 68-66 Atlantic 10 victory was symbolic of the game. The Bonnies' defense was hardly to blame. "Tremendous player," said Ron DeCarli, St. Bonaventure's first-year head coach, whose team dropped to 2-4 overall and 1-2 in the conference.

Freshman Bernard Blunt scored 21 points as St. Joseph's cruised to an 89-69 victory over St. Bonaventure last night in a battle of previously winless Atlantic Ten Conference teams.

The victory was just the Hawks' third in 12 games this season, and their first in six league contests. St. Bonaventure, which has lost to St. Joseph's in eight of its last nine meetings at home, fell to 3-10.

St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli said he won't care about revenge or any personal milestones Wednesday night when his team faces St. Bonaventure in a crucial Atlantic Ten basketball game in Rochester, N.Y. All Martelli is worried about is winning, which would keep his team in the running for the top seed in the A-10 tournament. With two games left, one game separates the top four teams. St. Joseph's is 24-5 and 13-3 in the A-10. Virginia Commonwealth (21-8, 13-3) is tied with the Hawks while St. Bonaventure (20-7, 12-4)

VILLANOVA The Wildcats finish the season Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center against a Georgetown team that took a 14-15, 7-9 record into Tuesday's game at Marquette. Even though the Hoyas are struggling, Villanova coach Jay Wright said it is still a special game between these two original Big East teams. "The game takes on a life of its own regardless where anybody is in the standings," Wright said. That certainly was the case earlier this season, when Villanova won a hard-fought 55-50 decision at Georgetown on Jan. 16. "This is almost like an Army-Navy game for us," Wright said.

ON PAPER, La Salle was due for another blowout loss Wednesday night. Losers of 10 straight games - all by double digits - and 17 of 18 overall, the Explorers faced a St. Bonaventure squad that had won five straight, was 17-6 overall and on the NCAA Tournament bubble. Good thing for the Explorers that the game was played on wood inside Tom Gola Arena. Somehow, the Explorers overcame their 17 turnovers (to just 11 for the Bonnies), a 4-minute, 59-second stretch midway through the second half in which they didn't score a basket, and still came away with an impressive, 71-64 Atlantic 10 win. "Obviously we beat a very good team who's been playing very well and we gave a great effort," La Salle coach John Giannini said.

St. Joseph's at Fordham Saturday, 2 p.m., Rose Hill Gymnasium, New York TV/Radio: 990 AM WNPT. Records: St. Joseph's 18-4 overall, 7-2 Atlantic 10; Fordham, 12-8, 3-6. On St. Joseph's: The Hawks, who saw their seven-game win streak snapped with Wednesday's 83-73 loss to visiting St. Bonaventure, own the nation's best road record (7-0) and are the only unbeaten team. On Fordham: This is the most wins by Fordham since the 2007-2008 team won 12 games. Insights Fordham hasn't played since Saturday's 78-72 overtime win on Saturday at Massachusetts, so the Rams should try to force the issue early and provide some pressure, especially since they will go at least eight deep.
