Temple certainly has Rhode Island's number. The Owls shot better than 45 percent from the floor for the first time this season in a 69-53 Atlantic Ten Conference win over the Rams last night at the Ryan Center. Temple improved to 10-10 overall and 5-5 in the A-10. Rhode Island fell to 14-10 and 3-7. Beating the Rams wasn't a big surprise. Temple has won nine straight in the series since losing to Rhode Island on Lamar Odom's buzzer-beating three-pointer in the 1999 A-10 championship game.

Temple's season and John Chaney's career could not have ended on a more somber note. Never mind that Chaney wasn't in the Liacouras Center for last night's opening-round NIT game with Akron. Owls star point guard Mardy Collins ended his own college career by being taken off the court on a stretcher, his neck in a brace, after he landed hard on the floor in the final 30 seconds. It's impossible to imagine that the Owls cared much at all about finishing the game, but they did finish it out, and Akron, ahead by three points when Collins went down, polished off an 80-73 overtime victory.

Before this basketball season began, Mardy Collins sounded excited about not having to be Temple's point guard all the time. After struggling early at shooting guard, shooting himself right into a confidence crisis, he's back at the point and embracing its possibilities. "I'd rather play the point, because once a guy's not open, I get to create my own shot rather than come off screens," Collins said last night. If February is traditionally the month when Temple gets its act together, Collins must be the perfect Owls player.

A jumper by Steve Moore with 25.8 seconds remaining propelled Arizona State (4-1) to a comeback win over Temple, 70-66, last night at the America West Arena in Phoenix. Temple (1-4) got 19 points from sophomore guard Mardy Collins and 16 from Dustin Salisbery and led most of the way. But ASU got clutch free-throw shooting from Ike Diogu, who scored 23 points in the game, to pull out the win in the last minute.

Holding J.J. Redick, the NCAA's second leading scorer, to a meager 11 points was great. It just wasn't enough for Temple last night. All eyes were on Redick, cameras flashing every time the star touched the ball, and so was a scathing Temple defense, swarming him with pressure. Not only was Redick not connecting from the field (3 for 10 overall), but the looks simply were not there. What had John Chaney concocted to stop the Atlantic Coast Conference's leading scorer? "We showed them different looks with Redick," the Owls' coach said after the game.

Throughout this up-and-down season, coach John Chaney has regularly questioned his Temple team's toughness and its intelligence. Last night, Chaney's anger turned in a different direction, as he lashed out at the Owls' lack of effort in a 68-62 victory over Duquesne at the Palumbo Center. Temple never trailed after the first minute of play, and the final score wasn't indicative of the way the Owls controlled the game. But that provided little solace for their head coach. "I would trade my [team]

Temple point guard Mardy Collins was released from Temple University Hospital yesterday afternoon, a day after suffering a sprained neck on the last play of his college career. All tests for more serious injuries were negative. Collins suffered the injury with 30 seconds left in overtime of Temple's NIT first-round loss Tuesday night when Collins, driving to the basket, crashed to the ground, and an Akron player fell on his neck. That caused his chin to jam into his chest. "He'll be pretty sore for the next week or two weeks," Temple trainer Steve Spiro said.

Cuttino Mobley, a Philadelphian who has played 11 seasons in the NBA, is expected to formally announce his retirement at a New York news conference today. Speculation about Mobley's future has been swirling since he was traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to New York last month. Tests performed by the Knicks uncovered signs of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a source said. That's the heart disorder that killed fellow Philadelphian Hank Gathers in 1990, the Celtics' Reggie Lewis three years later, and Atlanta's Jason Collier in 2005.

In the visitors' locker room at the Wachovia Center, while his teammates pulled on their uniforms, Stephon Marbury, in black Converse and jeans, typed on his BlackBerry. From 2004-07, Marbury, the face of a failing New York Knicks franchise, started every game he played. Last night, coach Mike D'Antoni, who is in his first season with the Knicks, placed the 31-year-old Marbury on the inactive list for their game against the 76ers. In New York's first game, a 120-115 win over the Heat on Wednesday, Marbury was active but did not play.

With 4 1/2 minutes left, Temple star Mardy Collins took a three-pointer in an attempt to tie UCLA on Thursday night in the second round of the Preseason NIT at Pauley Pavilion. It didn't go down. The Owls realize that against the better teams on their schedule, the outside shots have to fall. Temple has no inside game to speak of, and already rebounding has been a huge weakness. Owls coach John Chaney showed that he is willing to go smaller - to put his better players on the floor and cause matchup problems for opponents - since his inside problems aren't going away with any lineup he uses.

Mark Tyndale is anxiously awaiting the chance to join his pals again. Every summer, the former Temple and Simon Gratz High basketball star heads to Villanova to test his mettle against players from the city who play professionally. The group includes best friend and Clippers guard Mardy Collins, a fellow Temple and Gratz product, and the Rockets' Kyle Lowry, from Villanova and Cardinal Dougherty. "They think I'm good enough to play in the NBA," Tyndale said. "They just tell me I have to do all the little things to get there.

The fortunes of the 76ers and the New York Knicks have clearly changed since 2008 arrived. While the Knicks are far from world beaters, right now they appear miles ahead of a Sixers team that blew their doors off twice in two nights last month. Both reversals continued last night with the Knicks' 89-81 win over the Sixers before 19,248 at Madison Square Garden. The Sixers (16-28) have dropped three in a row and are 2-11 in 2008. The Knicks are just 14-28 overall, but they have won six of their last 10 and are 6-7 in the new year.

Isiah Thomas put his credibility on the line when he brought Stephon Marbury back to New York three years ago. At the time, Thomas said that Marbury - the self-described "Coney Island's Finest" - was misunderstood and would be able to handle the pressure of playing in his hometown. Thomas said Marbury was ready to be a team player and leader. He was wrong. Way wrong. Dewey Beats Truman wrong. Thomas backed Marbury against Larry Brown when those two feuded in 2005. He let Marbury's odd behaviors and statements pass without much public comment or reprimand, and allowed Marbury to bring a family member into the organization whose chief job qualification appeared to be his willingness to be available at Marbury's beck and call.

NBA scoring leader Carmelo Anthony was suspended for 15 games yesterday and six other players were penalized as commissioner David Stern came down hard on both teams after the Nuggets and Knicks brawled at Madison Square Garden. New York's Nate Robinson and Denver's J.R. Smith each got 10-game suspensions, and four other players also were suspended. Stern fined each organization $500,000. But there was no separate penalty for Knicks coach Isiah Thomas, who had warned Denver's Anthony not to go into the lane before the mayhem started Saturday night.

Another 2006 non-playoff team - which like the 76ers is seeking to establish an identity - visited Philadelphia last night for an NBA preseason game at the Wachovia Center. The Sixers' opponents were Isiah Thomas' New York Knicks, and the Hall of Famer promises they will be much different from last year's methodical squad that was guided by Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown in a 23-win season even more dismal than the Sixers' 38-43. The Sixers played without two starters - forward Chris Webber had the flu and center Samuel Dalembert had a strained hamstring - so they were missing key components to their defense.

Back before he was one of the hottest agents in the NBA - before he represented Allen Iverson and LeBron James and some of the top college players entering tomorrow's NBA draft - Cherry Hill's Leon Rose did whatever it took just to become a real-life NBA player representative. "Early in my career, he would wake up at 6:45 a.m. and meet me at Cherry Hill East every morning and rebound for me while I shot," said Rick Brunson, the Temple University star who became Rose's first full-time client in 1995.
