CINCINNATI - Last Sunday, Temple basketball players talked about showing toughness down the stretch during a close loss to sixth-ranked Kansas at vaunted Allen Fieldhouse. Thursday night was a different story. There was no consolation in losing another close one in a tough venue. The Owls were left questioning their decision-making and fortitude after a 57-52 loss to Xavier in their Atlantic 10 opener at Cintas Center. Seniors Khalif Wyatt and Scootie Randall were critical of themselves as Temple's leading scorers combined for just five points in the second half.

If things don't turn around quickly for Saint Joseph's, one road trip the Hawks won't be concerned about making is to Atlantic City in March. This season's road woes continued for St. Joe's last night in an 88-52 loss to Xavier before a crowd of 10,015 at Cintas Center. The Hawks (9-17, 3-9 A-10) were outrebounded, 53-17, including 18-5 on the offensive end. Only three St. Joe's players had more than two rebounds, led by Carl Baptiste's four. "Those just aren't real numbers," Hawks coach Phil Martelli said.

CINCINNATI - St. Joseph's had one thing going for it entering Wednesday night's game here. Still, having history on its side didn't exactly give the Hawks much of a reason to look on the bright side. St. Joseph's was the last Atlantic Ten Conference team to defeat Xavier at Cintas Center, and that was almost six years ago. On this night, however, the game couldn't have gone much worse for the visitors, who learned just before tipoff that they would be without Carl Jones, their injured leading scorer.

CINCINNATI - Saint Joseph's had about one thing going in its favor entering last night's game against Xavier. And having history on its side didn't exactly give St. Joe's much of a reason to look on the bright side. The Hawks were the last Atlantic 10 team to defeat Xavier at the the Cintas Center - almost 6 years ago. But they were without leading scorer Carl Jones as they entered this meeting with what coach Phil Martelli called the Atlantic 10's best team. St. Joe's ultimately couldn't overcome Jones' injury absence, committing a season-high 19 turnovers in a 68-55 loss to Xavier in front of 9,919.

Last season, La Salle was the only team to defeat Xavier on the Musketeers' home court, the Cincinnati Gardens. Yesterday, the Explorers got an opportunity to pull off a similar surprise at Xavier's new, on-campus Cintas Center, but came up short. La Salle made it difficult for the Musketeers, especially in the first half, before dropping an 81-66, Atlantic 10 decision. The Explorers' top scorers, Victor Thomas and Rasual Butler, combined for 26 first-half points, keeping La Salle (6-7, 0-2)

La Salle coach John Giannini is preaching patience. "I've never seen a team play with that kind of effort and pride and it not pay off," Giannini said of the Explorers. "The wins will come in time. " While La Salle kept the game close last night, the win would go to Xavier as the Musketeers topped the visitors, 62-50, before 9,939 at the Cintas Center. The loss was the sixth in a row for the Explorers, who fell to 5-14 overall and 1-7 in the Atlantic Ten Conference. Xavier improved to 10-8 and 4-4. La Salle's Steven Smith finished with game high of 19 points and a team high of 11 rebounds.

The blue and white balloons were ready to drop from the ceiling of Cincinnati Gardens. This was Xavier's party. St. Joseph's was a necessary, yet unwelcome guest. For 51 years, the Musketeers have been playing games at this venerable brick barn. Oscar Robertson also called the Gardens home when he played for the Cincinnati Royals. The 1967 NBA champion 76ers clinched a playoff series here. The AHL Phantoms still show up to face the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks. But Xavier - barring an NIT home game - will play here no longer.

There's some good news for the Temple basketball team following its 76-68 loss to Xavier at the Cintas Center last night. It won't get any harder. Finishing a three-game road trip that started with double-digit losses at Villanova and Duke, the Owls took the Musketeers to the final minute before missing their chance at an upset. No, the rest of the Atlantic Ten Conference schedule won't be easy for Coach Fran Dunphy's squad. But nobody else in the league is expected to make the NCAA tournament.

St. Joseph's ran out of rallies last night, losing the Atlantic Ten women's basketball championship, 65-59, to host Xavier in the final minutes at the Cintas Center. The victory gives the third-seeded Musketeers (26-7) the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, whose 64-team field will be announced on Monday night. The fifth-seeded Hawks (19-13) trailed, 37-27, with 13 minutes, 2 seconds left, making it the third straight contest here in which they fell behind by double-digits.

The sign in the Xavier student section accusing Dionte Christmas of wearing a Snuggie might have been referring to the Musketeers' defense - specifically, senior B.J. Raymond and sophomore Dante Jackson. The pair took turns blanketing the Temple senior, limiting him to 12 points in 35 minutes as No. 9 Xavier cruised to an 83-74 Atlantic 10 win at the Cintas Center. Christmas, who entered the game leading the A-10 in scoring (20.5 points per game), missed all three of his three-point shots, leaving him 0-for-9 over his last two games.

Temple is running out of chances to gain the kind of signature victory that can carry a team a long way toward getting into the NCAA tournament. At this point, the more immediate concern for the Owls is securing a first-round bye in next month's Atlantic Ten Conference tournament. Given the chance for that big win last night against ninth-ranked Xavier, the Owls had no chance by the midway point of the second half. B.J. Raymond and Brad Redford combined to hit 9 of 14 three-point attempts as the Musketeers established a 17-point second-half lead and held on for an 83-74 victory over the Owls at a raucous, sold-out Cintas Center.

Ahmad Nivins recovered in time to help the St. Joseph's Hawks yesterday, but he could not save them. The center suffered a sprained ankle a week ago and was questionable for the game at Xavier. But he was in the starting lineup. St. Joe's trailed by as many as 14 points but rallied to take the lead. The Hawks were up by four with 2 minutes, 15 seconds left. Nivins, though, was hampered by foul woes and played only 15 minutes. And the Hawks let a close one slip away again as No. 13 Xavier scored the game's final eight points to win an Atlantic Ten thriller, 76-72, at a sold-out Cintas Center.

Rarely has one player crammed higher highs and lower lows into one 4-day span than Saint Joseph's senior Ayahna Cornish at the Atlantic 10 Tournament. She saved the lowest of her lows for yesterday's championship game against Xavier. On the Musketeers' home court at Cintas Center, Cornish went just 1-for-12 from the field, including 0-for-4 on three-pointers, and managed a season-low four points as the Hawks succumbed, 65-59. "Sometimes, the shots fall," said Cornish, a second-team all-conference pick and a member with teammate Brittany Ford of the all-tournament team.
