Tyreek Duren scored from under the basket on an inbounds play that started with 0.7 seconds remaining to give La Salle a 64-62 victory at Fordham on Saturday. La Salle (14-14, 6-8 Atlantic Ten) never trailed and led by as many as 15 in the first half. But Fordham (9-18, 2-12) pulled even and appeared to have forced overtime. The clock expired after Branden Frazier blocked the shot of La Salle's Tyrone Garland out of bounds. The officials reviewed the video and gave the ball back to the Explorers with just enough time for Duren's game-winner.

St. Joseph's senior guard Langston Galloway has an even demeanor and doesn't get too high or low based on his varying performances. After struggling in Wednesday's 57-54 win at Rhode Island, Galloway was simply unconscious with a school-record 10 three-point field goals during an 87-72 victory over Fordham in an Atlantic Ten game Saturday at Hagan Arena. A game after shooting 2 for 12 overall and 1 for 6 from beyond the arc, Galloway hit 10 of 15 three-pointers in scoring a career-high 33 points.

When Temple secured P.J. Walker's signature on a letter of intent, most Owls fans thought that they would have to wait about a year to get a look at the highly touted quarterback. But Temple's slow start, coupled with injuries and inconsistent quarterback play, forced new coach Matt Rhule to speed up the process. Walker will make his first career start Friday when the Owls (0-5, 0-2 American Athletic Conference) play at Cincinnati (3-2, 0-1). "I think Marcus [Satterfield] has done a really good job of bringing him around slowly and not playing him until he was ready to play," Rhule said Tuesday of Temple's offensive coordinator.

The thing about bye weeks during the football season is that they can do one of two things. After a win, especially when it's desperately needed, a week off can provide a physical and mental salve that makes the aches and pains a little easier to take. And then there is the ugliness and grief that come after a bad loss, which is what Temple suffered Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field. Hosting feisty Fordham of the Football Championship Subdivision, the Owls fell behind early, rallied, and then gave up the game-winning touchdown in the final seconds for a 30-29 loss.

At some point Saturday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field, former Rancocas Valley High School running back Carlton Koonce will exchange pleasantries with Temple players such as offensive lineman Eric Lofton and Raymond Korang, who, like Koonce, played at the Lumberton school. But that will be only after Koonce and his Fordham (2-0) teammates have done everything in their power to upend the Owls (0-2). Last week against Villanova, the Football Championship Subdivision Rams forced the then-No.

When: Saturday at 6 p.m. Where: Jack Coffey Field, New York Records: Villanova, 0-1; Fordham, 1-0. Radio: WIP-AM (610) Coaches: Villanova, Andy Talley (29th season, 198-121-1; overall 34th season, 226-139-2); Fordham, Joe Moorhead (2d season, 7-5). Series: Villanova leads, 20-4-3. Last time: Villanova won, 28-13, last season at home. Three Things to Watch Villanova committed four turnovers in last week's opening 24-14 loss to Boston College. Quarterback John Robertson, who threw two interceptions, seemed to be forcing the action instead of letting things develop, and he will need to make better decisions instead of always looking to run the ball.

Even though this isn't a Colonial Athletic Association game, Villanova football coach Andy Talley left no doubt about the importance of the nonconference matchup at Fordham at 6 p.m. Saturday. "This is a must-win game," Talley said. That wasn't just coach-speak. The Wildcats are coming off an impressive performance in Saturday's 24-14 loss at Boston College. That won't hurt Villanova in the minds of the Football Championship Subdivision playoff committee members. Yet losing to an FCS team such as Fordham would be a major setback for a Villanova team that is ranked No. 8 by the Sports Network and has national title aspirations.
