St. Joseph's (13-8 overall, 3-3 A-10) entered the game having lost three in a row and five of seven. Dayton had won two in a row and six of seven, and the Flyers (14-6, 4-2)

Dan Thomas, Neshaminy High's all-American soccer player, said yesterday that he would attend the University of Dayton on a soccer scholarship. Thomas, a 5-foot-8, 160-pound sweeper, was The Inquirer's soccer player of the year for Bucks and Montgomery Counties last fall. He was one of only four defenders in the country named in December to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America/adidas all-American team. "I based my decision on Dayton's total package," said Thomas, who chose the school over Temple and New Hampshire.

Trying to remain among the leaders in the Atlantic Ten, Temple hosted a Dayton squad that wanted to make it an ugly game last night at the Liacouras Center. The Flyers succeeded on that count, but they lost the battle. With guard Ramone Moore scoring a game-high 13 points, and forward Lavoy Allen topping all rebounders with 18, Temple took a 49-41 victory. The 20th-ranked Owls limited Dayton to 26.3 percent shooting while making only 32.1 percent of their own shots. "We don't really mind winning this way," Moore said.

DAYTON, Ohio - The last time La Salle played in UD Arena, the Exploers pulled out an NCAA First Four win, 81-70 over Boise State, to start last year's unprecedented Sweet 16 run. This year, the UD Arena magic only lasted for about 12 minutes. La Salle coach John Giannini used last year's success as a key part of his pregame talk, but a 10-point first-half lead was shortlived as La Salle fell, 65-53, to Dayton last night. The Explorers (12-13, 4-7 Atlantic 10) have lost four straight and seven of their last eight.

NEW YORK - After being picked to finish seventh, St. Joseph's had a chance to win the Atlantic Ten regular-season title. Instead, the Hawks lost their last two games, including at home to a Duquesne team that hadn't won in a month. Now, they are one win away from earning a second conference tournament championship in three years. "Well, I'll trade you 100 times out of 100 for the feeling now as opposed to last Saturday at 6:30," coach Phil Martelli said after his team's 82-79 victory over top-seeded Dayton in the first half of a semifinal doubheader Saturday at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

ON HIS WAY into Hagan Arena Wednesday evening, Phil Martelli said a Saint Joseph's student yelled to him. "We're in the tourney!" the student shouted, according to the coach, who is in his 21st season on City Avenue. "You're right, we're in the Atlantic 10 Tourney. I know that for a fact," Martelli said back. The student, of course, was talking about the 68-team NCAA Tournament. The one the Hawks missed out on last season, after getting in by winning the A-10 Tournament in 2014.

For much of Saturday's contest between La Salle and No. 25 Dayton, there was no action. Players were standing still for chunks of time - by design. The undermanned Explorers were forced into a slow, methodical game plan, but it worked. La Salle snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 61-57 win over the Flyers at Tom Gola Arena. La Salle (5-8, 1-2 Atlantic Ten) had just seven scholarship players available for the game, so it went back to the plan it used to start the season 4-0. At the start of almost every possession, an Explorers guard dribbled until the shot clock reached around 10 seconds, with no intention of making a play.

The national controversy that clouded the run-up to a Final Four that concluded Monday night in Indianapolis wasn't the first collision between basketball and civil-rights politics. In Louisiana in 1956, as in Indiana 59 years later, a four-team basketball tournament involving a favored Kentucky team was engulfed in a political storm, though the divisive issue then was race and not sexual preference. And as in Indiana, where a recent religious-freedom law was widely seen as discriminatory against homosexuals, the Louisiana dispute involved changing cultural mores, a conservative legislature, worried civic and business leaders and, ultimately, government intervention that saved the event.

IN THE final game of the regular season, in March of 1985, Villanova got pounded at Pittsburgh. It was so bad that coach Rollie Massimino benched his starters for almost the entire second half. Even after winning a game at the Big East Tournament, that Pitt game still lingered. The Wildcats were a No. 8 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and expectations were low. Then when they saw their first game in the bracket - against Dayton, at Dayton - the expectations were non-existent. But then it began - a last-minute win over Dayton followed by the felling of mighty Michigan, No. 2 in the nation.

ONE GAME can do a lot to the psyche of a college athlete. At least that's what La Salle is hoping proves true as it begins play in the Atlantic 10 Tournament today at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. The ninth-seeded Explorers tip off with No. 8 Massachusetts at noon. And they're hoping the game that preceded it has a lot of affect on today's outcome and beyond. That game, of course, is La Salle's 55-53 victory Saturday over second-seeded Dayton - a team that was just outside the Top 25 last week - on Senior Night at Tom Gola Arena.
