THE CALENDAR said it was mid-November at Hagan Arena. It felt more like mid-February. When Creighton and Saint Joseph's were done scoring the last of the game's 162 points Saturday night, Blue Jays coach Greg McDermott said: "That was a terrific basketball game, one of the best I've been involved in. " A great game needed a great finish and McDermott's son Doug supplied it in the final seconds as Creighton won, 83-79. It was the first game-winner for one of America's best players.

Before taking the court for the first time this season Friday night at Hagan Arena, St. Joseph's unfurled a banner in salute to last year's Atlantic 10 Conference championship. Then the Hawks, who lost three starters from that 24-10 team, showed there is much work to be done if they are going to raise another banner any time soon. St. Joe's paid dearly for a ragged, opening-game performance as Mustafaa Jones, a senior from Neumann-Goretti who used to attend a summer camp run by St. Joe's coach Phil Martelli, nailed a three-point shot with 3.3 seconds remaining to give underdog Fairleigh Dickinson a shocking, 58-57 win.

St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli suggests that ear plugs could be necessary when the Hawks host Temple in Sunday's crucial Big Five and Atlantic Ten basketball matchup Saturday at Hagan Arena. A little chicken soup for some ailing Hawks may not be a bad idea, either. If last year's 82-72 win at Hagan Arena that snapped a 10-game losing streak to the Owls is an example, the crowd will be treating this like a postseason affair. "What better way to be playing a Philadelphia Big Five game, an Atlantic Ten game on Saturday night in a place you won't be able to hear yourself think," Martelli said.

SAINT JOSEPH'S didn't need C.J. Aiken in order to dispose of lowly Fordham last weekend. But they're going to need him if they have hopes of securing a ticket to the NCAA Tournament - a feat bracketologists say will require an Atlantic 10 Tournament title. On Wednesday night, Aiken showed why. Behind their junior center, the Hawks (17-11, 8-7 A-10) dismantled Rhode Island on Senior Night at Hagan Arena, 81-44. Aiken, who sat out the Fordham game, scored 10 points in only 10 first-half minutes off the bench to propel St. Joe's to a 19-point halftime lead.

St. Joseph's, which has lost once since Jan. 5, is trying to get into the NCAA tournament. La Salle, which has won once since Thanksgiving, is just trying salvage anything out of a forgettable season while it awaits the arrival of three promising transfers who had to sit out a year. But when Big Five teams get together, well, history tells us that sometimes you never know what might be possible. Or not. The two teams met three weeks ago at 20th and Olney, with St. Joe's winning by 21. Saturday night at Hagan Arena it turned out to be more of the same.

AFTER THE first 250 games, scoring across college basketball is up from 69 points per game last year to 74, due to some combination of the 30-second shot clock and increased emphasis on allowing offensive freedom of movement. Scoring is way, way up Hawk Hill. Last season, the Hawks averaged just 61.7 points per game. After blasting Buffalo, 89-67 Wednesday night at Hagan Arena, the Hawks (3-0) are averaging 81.3 points. Now, it is very early and the competition is about to get much more serious when Phil Martelli's team travels to Mohegan Sun in Connecticut to play Florida Saturday and either Purdue or Old Dominion Sunday, but, as signs go, the increased scoring is positive.

Though he never got the opportunity, Charles Brown Sr. always wanted to play basketball at St. Joseph's University. Brown Sr., who played at Overbrook and later at North Carolina A&T, will now get the chance to watch his son, Charles Jr., soar as a Hawk. The George Washington senior forward committed Friday to St. Joseph's. "My dad, he always wanted to go to St. Joe's, but he couldn't get in," Brown Jr. said. "So this is a big thing for me. It feels great, it's something he never accomplished, but I accomplished it. So I still think I'm better than him, but he doesn't believe it, though.

AT THIS point 2 years ago, La Salle was getting ready to embark on an unexpected run to the Sweet 16.

This year they're two teams in the bottom half of the standings, both having lost four of their previous five games, trying to get themselves ready for next week's conference tourney in Brooklyn.

St. Joseph's point guard Chris Wilson was honored before the game during senior night at Hagan Arena. Then, fittingly, Wilson went out and had one of the best performances of his career in his final home appearance. Wilson scored 22 points, one shy of his career high, while adding six rebounds, three steals and one assist Wednesday as St. Joseph's defeated La Salle, 55-50, in an Atlantic Ten matchup. "It was very special and most importantly to win it with this group of guys," said Wilson, who shot 7 for 13 for the field and 5 of 9 from behind the arc. (The rest of the team was 1 for 10 from three-point range.)

Pretty much the only statistical category in which DeAndre' Bembry does not lead St. Joseph's was the one the Hawks needed him to excel in Saturday night. Bembry missed the front end of a potential game-tying one-and-one twice in the final 10 seconds of regulation and the Hawks went on to fall in overtime, 70-60, to St. Bonaventure at Hagan Arena. St. Bonaventure (14-11, 7-7 Atlantic Ten) outscored the Hawks, 18-8, in the extra session, a margin made closer by a couple of late three-pointers from the Hawks.

ST. LOUIS - Shooting struggles surfaced again for Saint Joseph's last night and the Hawks paid for the misses with a 68-61 overtime loss at Saint Louis University. "It was a game of layups. They made theirs, we missed ours," Hawks coach Phil Martelli said. "There's really no excuse for it. We drove the ball to the basket but didn't make our layups. " St. Joseph's didn't start out missing. The Hawk made 10 of their first 15 shots to grab a 24-14 lead 9 minutes into the game.
