BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - It's never a good thing when a team misses 34 shots. And that's exactly what Drexel did in a 69-58 nonconference loss to Fairfield Sunday. The Dragons went 21-for-55 from the field (38.2 percent), their second worst outing of the season, to fall to 3-7. Damion Less led Drexel with 15 points, but had to take 15 shots to do it, finishing 4-for-15 from the field. Franz Massenat added 11 points and was held without an assist for the first time this season.

Mitch Buonaguro never got a chance to experience the full flavor of Villanova's first NCAA championship last spring. Buonaguro, a longtime assistant of coach Rollie Massimino, missed the Wildcats' trip to the White House because he was being introduced as the new head coach of Fairfield. Buonaguro doesn't expect the White House to come calling again this year, but he won't miss out on the NCAA Tournament. That was decided last night, when his Fairfield club defeated Holy Cross, 67-64, to win the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament championship at the Brendan Byrne Arena.

There were about nine minutes left, and La Salle was leading Fairfield, 63-39. Garbage time, right? "Dougie," Explorers coach Speedy Morris yelled to point guard Doug Overton, "this better be a great one. " About 10 seconds later, Overton hit a cutting Lionel Simmons with a crisp pass and Simmons converted a layup. Eight minutes later, top-seeded La Salle (24-5) owned a 91-62 win over No. 8 seed Fairfield (7-21) in the first round of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament played last night at the Palestra.

Ed Golden hit two free throws with 1:14 left in overtime to give Fairfield the lead as the Stags rallied from an 18-point second-half deficit to defeat Iona, 73-70, last night in East Rutherford, N.J., and capture their second straight Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title and NCAA tournament berth. It was a miraculous comeback for the Stags, who only got to overtime because A. J. Wynder hit an off-balance 17-foot jumper at the buzzer to tie the game at 65-65. In the overtime, Fairfield, the seventh seed in the tournament, had to come back once more, after Alvin Lott hit a 15-foot jumper to give fourth-seeded Iona a 70-67 lead.

La Salle University has struggled against some teams this season, but Fairfield isn't one of them. The last time the schools met - just two weeks ago at the Civic Center - La Salle rolled to an 84-66 victory behind Doug Overton's 40-point effort. Since then, the Explorers have sandwiched a loss between two wins. They beat Manhattan, 76-65, lost to Notre Dame, 84-68, and defeated Canisius by an identical 84-68 Saturday. The loss to the Irish broke a seven-game overall winning streak.

For the second straight month, a decision on the Fairfield at Thornbury subdivision was blocked when a new Thornbury Township supervisor declined to vote on the plans. Supervisor Theodore Pauley made a motion that he and Supervisor Carol Galantino vote on the subdivision. A Chester County Common Pleas Court order bars the third supervisor, Chairman Jack Copeland Jr., from voting, because he testified at a zoning hearing on the subdivision in a private capacity. Galantino, who joined the Board of Supervisors on Aug. 11, declined to vote at Monday night's meeting for the same reason she gave last month.

La Salle and Fairfield did their best last night to set college basketball back 40 years, which was fitting because the Explorers honored their 1952 National Invitation Tournament championship team at halftime. But after a gruesome first half, the Explorers got it together at both ends of the floor and rolled to a 69-50 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference victory over the Stags before a crowd of 2,195 at the Civic Center. Randy Woods and Jack Hurd, who combined for 12 points on 5-for-17 shooting in the opening 20 minutes, each had a strong second half.

There is a lot that ails the St. Joseph's basketball team, but after another frustrating defeat, the Hawks said a major factor is their intensity, or lack of it. Outhustled by a scrappy Fairfield team, St. Joseph's lost, 60-57, Saturday at Hagan Arena. The Hawks are 5-4 and have lost three of their last four games. "It's really frustrating, and we're definitely not playing to our potential, and I think it has to do with our energy," said Ronald Roberts, who had 19 points and 11 rebounds, but only two points after intermission.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - As Fairfield swarmed on defense on Sunday, using its guards to aggressively pressure the ball, Drexel had no answer. Possession after possession, Fairfield imposed its will, forcing Drexel into tough and contested jump shots all game long in the Dragons' 69-58 defeat at Webster Bank Arena. "Guys in there, we didn't play with any toughness," Drexel coach Bruiser Flint said. "Don't play with any toughness, you're not going to win any games. People feed off of that.

* It had been so long ago that perhaps many forgot just how well Temple's Scootie Randall was playing before he hurt his right foot near the end of the 2010-11 season. Over eight games, he averaged 17.8 points. It was like he missed no time when he got 31 in the Owls' opener Tuesday against Kent State after missing all of last season. Temple gets Rice (1-1) at Liacouras Center Saturday. Temple will be Rice's first Division I opponent. * Drexel's start is a bit a like last season's, a start that cost them an NCAA bid. Two games, two overtime losses as they get ready to play Penn ON Saturday at the Palestra.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Another second-half run by the opposition resulted in a Penn loss on Tuesday as the Quakers fell to Fairfield, 62-53, in a consolation game of the NIT Season Tip-Off at John Paul Jones Arena. After Penn (1-2) cut Fairfield's lead to one point early in the second half, the Stags (2-1) used a 16-4 run to regain control.

After experiencing some homesickness in his first year at Academy of the New Church, Ontario native Dinjiyl Walker is flourishing. "It was a little bit hard at first, coming over here and not knowing anyone," Walker said. "But the team really embraced me, made me feel like part of the family. I'm thankful for that. " Walker, who arrived in Bryn Athyn in 2010, is equally comfortable on the hardwood, as he showed in Friday night's Friends Schools League showdown vs. Westtown.

Fairfield had a plan to stop Samme Givens, but Givens had an answer. Givens scored a career-high 31 points to lead Drexel to its fifth straight victory, 77-69, over Fairfield on Wednesday night at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. "He played harder than us and said, 'Your scouting report be damned. I'm going to do what I want to,' " Fairfield coach Sydney Johnson said. "He just plays harder than whoever is playing against him. " The Stags (7-6) couldn't stop Givens, who made 13 of 16 shots - including four old-fashioned, three-point plays - while continuing his hot streak.
