In another measure of progress, St. Joseph's basketball team has exceeded its win total of last year. And the year before that. After earning 11 wins in each of the last two seasons, the Hawks improved to 12-5 with Wednesday's 80-62 win over Fordham in an Atlantic Ten matchup at Hagan Arena. The Hawks are now 2-1 in the A-10, while Fordham fell to 7-9 overall and 0-3 in the conference. Despite the win, this was far from an artistic success. St. Joe's went through sustained periods of inconsistency, but Fordham simply struggled to score.

Drexel added a reputable team - though not a winning one - to its list of conquests at the Physical Education Center last night. The opponent was tradition-rich Fordham, which wound up a 70-65 loser in the first game ever played between the two schools. For struggling Fordham (3-9), the two-time defending Patriot League champion, it was the eighth loss in its last nine games. Drexel won its second game in a row and improved to 7-4. "What this game means is that we beat a team with an excellent reputation," said Drexel coach Bill Herrion.

The rough road continued for La Salle last night at Fordham, where the Explorers lost, 83-75, at Rose Hill Gym in an Atlantic Ten Conference game for their fifth straight defeat. Not that Billy Hahn's team went quietly or failed to make a gutsy fight of it in the late going. Trailing by 21 points with 15 minutes left in the game, the Explorers (10-18, 5-10 A-10) finally found their range, hit some shots, played better defense, and closed the deficit to five points with 3 minutes, 40 seconds left to play.

NEW YORK - Temple's win over Fordham won't be a victory the selection committee holds in high regard when it evaluates the Owls' resume next weekend. And that's not a bad thing. Wednesday night's game really only stood to potentially hurt the Owls, as a loss to the Rams would've been devastating to their at-large chances. A win really just kept the status quo. But that surely beats the alternative. Temple avoided a devastating loss as it easily took care of Fordham, 74-55, in front of a sparse crowd at Rose Hill Gym in the Bronx.

By halftime of last night's Atlantic Ten Conference game at Rose Hill Gym, sad-sack Fordham could select from a number of telling statistics that St. Joseph's had compiled to damage the Rams' faded hopes for an upset. Was it the 20 points scored by Delonte West, the Hawks' sizzling sophomore guard, on 8-for-10 shooting from the field? Was it the nine three-point baskets St. Joe's had made? Was it the 14 turnovers the aggressive Hawks had squeezed out of Fordham's jittery ballhandlers?

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - We missed you last night at the Izod Center. The same Meadowlands facility that witnessed the unbridled insanity of the New Jersey Devils' winning two of their three Stanley Cups was a sea of empty seats for visiting Temple's win over Fordham. At times, it was so quiet, you could almost hear Jimmy Hoffa stirring. Temple matched the apathy in the stands to start the game, but eventually the Owls got their legs under them and rolled to a 70-51 victory in the Atlantic 10 opener for both teams.

Temple matched its best 20-game start in 16 years with a 62-45 victory at Fordham yesterday. But Owls coach Fran Dunphy is not ready to make a comparison between his squad and the likes of Eddie Jones and Aaron McKie, who starred for the 1993-94 team. "I would prefer to evaluate who we are and where we are at the end of the season," Dunphy said after the 16th-ranked Owls improved to 17-3, 5-0 in the Atlantic Ten, thanks to a strong second half against the weakest outfit in the league.

St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli had this feeling before yesterday's game, a feeling that drove the worrisome nature of his coaching side to a higher-than-usual pitch. And that's high. "I just had a feeling, I don't know, that we might be a little bit flat," he said after his team's 88-78 victory over Fordham. When Martelli's Hawks were locked in a 72-72 tie in the Atlantic Ten Conference game, and when Marvin O'Connor's three-point attempt rimmed out of the hoop with the game narrowed down to crunch time, many of the 3,200 spectators inside Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse must have had a feeling approaching nausea.

Steve Lappas completed his Villanova coaching staff yesterday by hiring Paul Hewitt, an assistant coach for the last two seasons at Fordham. Fordham's head coach, Nick Macarchuk, had been one of four finalists for the head-coaching job at Villanova that went to Lappas last month. Earlier, Lappas hired John Leonard, who was one of Lappas' top assistants last season at Manhattan. Leonard and Hewitt will be Villanova's two full-time assistant coaches. Former Wildcat player Steve Pinone will be Lappas' part- time assistant, as he was last season at Manhattan.

Willie Haynes scored 18 points, including three crucial free throws in the final two minutes, to lead St. Peter's to a 62-61 victory over Manhattan last night in a first-round Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament game in Jersey City, N.J. Forward Chuck Veterano, a product of Philadelphia's Roman Catholic High, led the Peacocks with 22 points. St. Peter's (21-7), the No. 2 seed in the tournament, will play third- seeded Iona (15-15) in a semifinal game at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, N.J. The Gaels, who beat St. Peter's twice during the regular season, advanced with a 76-63 victory over Holy Cross (13-15)
