Charge midfielder Liu Ailing, the cornerstone of the team when it was formed last year, will retire at the end of the Women's United Soccer Association season. Liu, 35, is from Shanghai, China. She led the Charge in scoring last season with 10 goals and two assists for 22 points and was a second-team all-WUSA selection. But her production this year has fallen considerably. In 11 games, including 10 starts, Liu has not scored a goal and has two assists. She had one of her better games in Saturday's 3-1 win over Atlanta.

The LIU Blackbirds, who play their home games at Brooklyn's Paramount Theater, are the underdogs from central casting. They just don't happen to think so.

Inside her townhouse in Blue Bell, Liu Ailing laughed as she grabbed the plastic ShopRite bag out of the refrigerator. The bag held some carrots, a head of spinach, a cucumber, a grapefruit. Food that Liu knew she could eat raw. "I bought a lot of food. I didn't know how to cook it," Liu had said of her first expedition to an American supermarket. "I never cooked before. I don't know how to cook. " She pulled some wrapped roast beef from the fridge. She knew she could make a sandwich.

As streamers and confetti descended from the balcony of the old Brooklyn Paramount Theater, Richie Parker started to dance. This was a rare and delicious moment for one of the more controversial recruits in college basketball history. Parker was about to hit two free throws to clinch the Northeast Conference title, returning Long Island University to the NCAA tournament for the first time in more than a decade - LIU will play Villanova on Thursday afternoon at Winston-Salem, N.C. - and giving the 20-year-old guard a reason to celebrate for the first time in years.

This is the player that Temple coach Fran Dunphy has been waiting to see. Now the only question is when Owls fans will see more of Texas transfer Jaylen Bond. Bond, a 6-foot-8 junior forward, played his best game so far Sunday in Temple's 70-56 victory over LIU Brooklyn at the Liacouras Center, finishing with 11 points and a career-high 13 rebounds as Temple rallied from a sluggish start to keep the Blackbirds winless. Bond, widely regarded as the team's starting power forward as soon as he decided to transfer here, sprained his right ankle one week before the season opener.

The shot sent the game into overtime and St. Joseph's prevailed, 74-70, over LIU Brooklyn on Tuesday in an NIT Season Tip-Off game at Hagan Arena. Demery's three-pointer a few feet from the left corner with 3.7 seconds remaining tied the score at 67. LIU Brooklyn missed a desperation three-pointer, sending the game to OT.

JAMES DEMERY sure picked a good time to hit his first collegiate three-pointer. Trailing by three with the clock winding down, Demery hit a shot from just in front of the Saint Joseph's bench to tie the score with less than 4 seconds left in regulation. The freshman from Williamston, N.C., says he hit three game-winners in high school. "I don't know about that," laughed teammate DeAndre Bembry, from Charlotte. "He didn't hit any against me. " The one last night didn't win it, but it did force overtime and helped Saint Joseph's eventually slip past gritty LIU Brooklyn, 74-70.

VILLANOVA has played 11 games. Villanova has won 11 games. The last time that happened was the 1961-62 season. The team, coached by Jack Kraft, finished 21-7, but also finished one win shy of the Final Four. Life is about to get more complicated for Jay Wright's team, but so far the Wildcats have been sensational. After beating a pretty solid Rider team 88-67, at the Pavilion on Saturday, the Wildcats have six wins by 20 or more points, including their last four. It does not really seem to matter what players are on the floor for the 'Cats.

NEW YORK - In need of a feel-good experience, the Temple Owls had themselves a nice little shootaround Saturday night, nailing open three-pointers from all over the Barclays Center, from practically every spot around that line. "We rode the wave," said Owls point guard Will Cummings, who finished with a career-high 23 points as Temple walked away with a 101-65 victory over LIU Brooklyn. Getting over 100 points for the first time since 2007, the Owls did it by hitting 15 of 27 three-pointers and shooting 61 percent overall.

WHEN ROY RUBIN died on Aug. 5 at the age of 87, it was unfortunate that he was remembered mostly as the guy who coached the 1972-73 76ers to a 4-47 record before being fired at the All-Star break. That team would go on to lose an NBA-record 73 games. His reputation as a highly successful high school and college basketball coach in New York was an afterthought. After all, who in Philly would know Roy Rubin if it wasn't for 4-47? The 4-47 was a career death sentence. He retreated to Florida and never coached another game.
