NEW YORK - Two Rams down, one to go. Temple's final three regular-season games, all against teams nicknamed the Rams, could determine the Owls' NCAA tournament fate. Like Saturday's game against the Rhode Island Rams, Wednesday night's meeting with Fordham ended in a Temple victory. Sparked by seldom-used freshman Daniel Dingle, the Owls defeated Fordham, 74-55, at Rose Hill Gym. "Actually if it wasn't for him in the first half, we wouldn't have been in as good shape as we were," guard Khalif Wyatt said of Dingle, who scored six of the first eight points in a decisive 22-4 run. "I think we were up by 11 at halftime," Wyatt added.

When Fordham University receiver Tom Garlick was a senior at Father Judge High School, he hoped to win a football scholarship to Villanova. The Wildcats were recruiting him, but Garlick broke an ankle and had to sit out part of the season. When he recovered and looked back into Villanova, the coaches them told him, "Thanks, but no thanks. " "When I broke the ankle, the only school that stuck with me was Fordham," said Garlick, a finance and management major. "I was definitely disappointed when Villanova cooled on me, but things have worked better than I expected them to. " So guess where Garlick will be Saturday?

Even on a squad that goes maybe six deep in efficiency, his status is less than that of unlikely hero. Unlikely factor would be more like it, or maybe even unlikely participant. Ken Palczewski has been around the La Salle basketball program for four seasons, serving mainly on the scout squad and as a practice foil to regulars such as Lionel Simmons, Tim Legler, Richie Tarr and Craig Conlin. He had been a cameo performer in 34 games before this season. And in 20 appearances as an afterthought this season, he was averaging five minutes and less than a point (0.7)

IF YOU WANT to be the best team in your conference, you obviously have to get past enough of the other contenders. But you also have to get it done against the not-as-good clubs, especially at home, because they all count. Temple, which is looking more and more like the Atlantic 10's team to beat, did exactly that last night at the Liacouras Center, where the Owls rarely lose even to the haves. Temple won its fifth straight, to remain tied for first in the loss column, 78-60 over Fordham, which has now lost six of eight.

Playing in his hometown on Saturday at Fordham, Newkirk scored a career-high 17 points on 6-for-9 shooting, propelling the Hawks to an 82-60 victory. After falling behind Fordham, 7-0, early in the first half and struggling to find their rhythm on offense for the first four minutes, DeAndre' Bembry found Newkirk all alone on a crosscourt pass in the left corner and his three-point shot put the Hawks on the board.

NEW YORK - After a brief hot start from three-point range, St. Joseph's couldn't maintain that efficiency Sunday and saw a long-standing streak fall against Fordham.
