Drexel coach Bill Herrion is one of two finalists - and the leading candidate - for the head basketball coaching job at Duquesne, sources in Pittsburgh said yesterday. The other candidate is Indiana of Pennsylvania coach Kurt Kanaskie, a former player at La Salle, who interviewed late for the Dukes job. Indiana lost in the semifinals of the NCAA Division II tournament last week. Officials at Duquesne had planned to name their coach this weekend, with Herrion said to still be the top choice to succeed John Carroll.

The student critics were out in force. "We Deserve Better" was one of the milder signs wielded by a group sitting about halfway up the bleachers at center court at the A.J. Palumbo Center. And they were protesting a lack of overall success by the winning team - Duquesne, which held off a La Salle rally for a 60-55 victory last night. La Salle (10-14, 4-9 Atlantic 10) essentially lost because of two stretches, one in each half, when its offense was cold enough to freeze all three of Pittsburgh's rivers.

Many college basketball coaches like to limit talk about a possible NCAA invitation because they fear their players will lose sight of the opponent right in front of them. Not La Salle's John Giannini. "The way to get to the NCAA tournament is to win games, and [our players] understand that," Giannini said Saturday after the Explorers took care of business with a 97-64 drubbing of Duquesne at Tom Gola Arena. "Frankly I'm surprised no one wouldn't understand it. It's just plain as day. You've got to win. " La Salle (20-7, 10-4 Atlantic Ten)

Duquesne, the Atlantic Ten team that threatened, but never beat, Temple this season, gets a shot at another Big Five school tonight.

It's spring break this week on Hawk Hill. Emphasis on the break. The talk after a St. Joseph's practice was all about staying calm, chilling out away from the court, in preparation for the Atlantic Ten tournament, which starts for the Hawks on Friday afternoon in Brooklyn, after a double-bye puts them in the quarterfinals. The Hawks are trying to put behind them the worst stretch of their regular season, at the very end. After often playing like the best team in the A-10, the Hawks finished with two straight losses for the only time this season.

NEW YORK - La Salle played 13 road games this season. The Explorers won one. And that was in late November, against Division III Rowan, where coach John Giannini had won a national championship 20 years earlier. But they'd won two of their last three coming into the 40th Atlantic 10 Tournament, which for whatever reason isn't being played at Gola Arena. It's been a forgettable season for a program that made a captivating three-win run to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tourney as a 13 seed in 2013, while it awaits the addition of three promising transfers who were forced to sit this journey out. The last time the Explorers lost more times was 1995-96, when they went 6-24 in their inaugural season in the A-10 after leaving the Midwest Collegiate Conference following a demoralizing three-year stay.

NEW YORK - La Salle has been playing in the Atlantic 10 since 1995-96. During that time, the Explorers have won more than one game in the conference tournament exactly once. That was in 2002, the first of coach Billy Hahn's three seasons, when they beat Fordham and Temple at the Spectrum before getting sent home by Richmond in the semifinals. Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, in the last of the four second-round matchups, the Explorers had an opportunity to do it again, three years after they'd won three NCAA games in five days.

St. Joseph's had better hope its finish to the regular season is not a harbinger of the postseason. After a 78-70 loss to Duquesne on Saturday at Hagan Arena, the Hawks will enter the Atlantic Ten tournament having lost back-to-back games for the first time this season. A positive showing at Brooklyn's Barclays Center would alleviate any Selection Sunday nerves on Hawk Hill created by a two-loss week. St. Joe's (24-7, 13-5) will open conference tournament play in the quarterfinals Friday as the fourth seed.

The multipurpose standout and third-year contributor ignites the Explorers with his quickness and savvy on both sides of the ball. Lined up in the backfield or slot, Rinella has made 12 catches for 212 yards and three touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 190-pound senior, who doubles at cornerback and returns kicks, has carried 15 times for 104 yards. In last Saturday's 27-24 nonleague loss to Archbishop Wood, Rinella helped spark a third-quarter rally with a 25-yard scoring grab. His 18-yard run set up quarterback Chris Ferguson's TD keeper.

The defensive-minded Mountaineers, coming off a 60-39 rout of Duquesne, are led by two-time all-Big 12 first-team junior guard Bria Holmes (18.9 ppg.)
