IF THE regular season had ended on the first weekend of March, Saint Joseph's would have been a lock NCAA Tournament team. The Hawks had won 17 of 20 games. They had seven true road wins. They had quality wins over VCU and Massachusetts. But it did not end until last weekend after the Hawks had lost consecutive games, first at George Washington in a game that featured some bizarre fouls calls on Halil Kanacevic and poor play down the stretch, and then at home against La Salle where the Hawks simply did not play very well while catching the very good version of the Explorers.

La Salle looked like the Explorers of last March during Sunday's 71-63 win at St. Joseph's. "I think it was our best game," La Salle coach John Giannini said. The Explorers hope that momentum carries into the Atlantic Ten tournament. Unlike last year, when La Salle lost its lone Atlantic Ten tournament game to Butler but still received a bid to the NCAA tournament, this season's team has no margin for error. La Salle (15-15) likely has to run the table, winning four games in four days to return to the NCAAs after last year's Sweet 16 run. The A-10 tournament will begin Thursday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and No. 8-seeded La Salle will plays a familiar foe in the noon opener, No. 9 St. Bonaventure.

A William Tennent diver and the La Salle 200-yard medley relay team took down boys' meet records Wednesday, the first day of the PIAA swimming and diving championships at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa. Forlini, a four-time district champion headed to Georgia, scored 596.15 points, more than 90 better than his nearest competitor. He topped the mark of 581.45 set by Dominic Giordano of Pine Richland last year. Kyle Shurmur, Michael McBryan, Greg Brocato, and Nick Stachel completed the medley relay in 1 minute, 30.26 seconds, topping the mark of 1:31.28 set last year by Upper Dublin.

Lower Merion's JaQuan Johnson and Roman Catholic's Shep Garner, longtime buddies and Chester natives, texted back and forth in the days leading to Wednesday night's high-stakes basketball matchup. "Shep asked me if I was ready for the game," Johnson said. "And he said that Roman was hungry to bring home a state title. I told him, 'You're going to have to get past the defending champs first.' " Thanks to Johnson's terrific second-half performance, a deliberate offensive attack, and stellar defense, the Aces ousted the Cahillites, 64-52, in a PIAA Class AAAA second-round game at Archbishop Ryan.

IN THE days and weeks leading to what could be his last collegiate game, La Salle's Tyreek Duren has been prodded with queries he is not yet ready to answer. Family members, friends and local newspaper reporters have been among those to pose questions with words such as "legacy" and other verbiage that indicate a conclusion is near. "Hopefully, I'll be remembered for something good," Duren said this week, smiling. "But right now, [my focus is] just trying to get my team back to the [NCAA]

LA SALLE will arrive in Brooklyn for this year's Atlantic 10 Tournament in much different standing than it found itself a year ago. The consensus last year was that the Explorers, coming off a 24-point loss at Saint Louis in their regular-season finale, needed at least one win to secure their place in the NCAA Tournament. After an 11-point loss to Butler in their first game at the Barclays Center, they sweated out Selection Sunday before learning they were indeed included in the field of 68. The rest, as they say, is history.

A 22-YEAR-OLD man was shot dead just off La Salle University's campus in Logan yesterday. The victim, the city's 50th homicide of the year, was shot once in the left side in an alley near Olney Avenue and 19th Street, police said. The shooting was sparked by an argument, which later escalated into a fistfight among a group of men, Chief Inspector Scott Small said. One of the men pulled a gun and shot the victim, who then staggered across Olney Avenue and collapsed in front of La Salle University.

IT IS LAST-CHANCE time for Temple and La Salle, another chance for Saint Joseph's and an opportunity for Villanova to lock up a No. 1 seed. Temple (9-21) goes first in tomorrow's American Athletic Conference opening round in Memphis, Tenn. The Owls can certainly beat Central Florida, but can they beat Cincinnati in Thursday's quarterfinals, followed by wins against two from a list that likely will include Memphis, SMU, Connecticut and Louisville? Not likely, unless Sam Hinkie decides to trade them Memphis native Thaddeus Young who only used that one year of eligibility at Georgia Tech.

A few minutes after a 71-63 loss to La Salle on Sunday, St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli stood in the center of his red-carpeted locker room and apologized to his players as they sat at their stalls. The Hawks coach told his team he was not ready for La Salle. He did not see it coming, Martelli said. Langston Galloway, the team's star senior, said the players offered nothing in return. The loss was not the coach's fault, Galloway said. "We just have to get ready for Friday," said Galloway, who led the Hawks with 27 points in the regular-season finale at Hagan Arena.

SAINT JOSEPH'S picked a bad time to have its first two-game losing streak in just over 3 months. La Salle, meanwhile, picked the best time to come up with maybe its top effort of the season. A win would have gone a long way toward securing the Hawks' (21-9, 11-5 Atlantic 10) first NCAA bid since 2008. Now they're back on the bubble, after closing out the regular season by losing to the Explorers (15-15, 7-9) at Hagan Arena, 71-63. That means they might have to win another game or two at the conference tournament, which begins Wednesday in Brooklyn.
