As crazy as it sounds, the Owls (23-8) can't focus too much on stopping Chaz Williams in Friday night's Atlantic Ten quarterfinal against the Minutemen (20-10). Temple tried that in the first half of an 83-82 victory over UMass on Feb. 16 in Amherst, Mass. It backfired. The Minutemen scored 26 points in the paint before intermission. Fourteen of them came from Cady Lalanne, a sophomore center. Now, Owls guards Will Cummings and T.J. DiLeo will have their hands full against the speedy Williams, an all-Atlantic Ten selection.

AMHERST, Mass. - Sitting at the postgame news conference after his team's 80-62, Atlantic Ten loss to Massachusetts at the Mullins Center, St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli was puzzled. He watched his team turn over the ball 14 times and UMass turn those giveaways into 14 points, many of which were highlight-film dunks. "We had unusual turnovers for guys of our age group," Martelli said, shaking his head. "They got [fastbreak points] off our turnovers. That's an Achilles' heel for our team.

Each week is different in the deep Atlantic Ten Conference, where few free rides are offered. La Salle's basketball team discovered that firsthand. After wins over A-10 heavyweights Butler and Virginia Commonwealth, La Salle saw its modest but impressive two-game streak snapped Wednesday night in a 61-60 loss to the University of Massachusetts at Tom Gola Arena. The Explorers fell to 14-6 overall and 4-3 in the A-10. UMass improved to 14-5, 4-2. "This league is a monster," La Salle coach John Giannini said.

Williamstown's Jullian Taylor said he still liked Massachusetts. He just liked Temple a little more. "It was just a better fit for both football and education," Taylor said of his decision to back out of his oral commitment to Massachusetts and commit to attend Temple on a football scholarship. Taylor, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound defensive end, made the switch over the weekend. He said he will sign with Temple on national signing day on Feb. 6. Taylor made 44 tackles and a team-high 12 sacks last season as Williamstown went 12-0 and won the South Jersey Group 5 title.

Virginia Cleary never gave up. In the 43 years since her older brother Marine Cpl. Robert Daniel Corriveau went missing from the Philadelphia Naval Hospital and was declared a deserter, she never stopped searching for him. She wrote countless letters, called senators and congressmen, traveled to Philadelphia to search news archives, scoured faces in crowds, battled with military and state officials for records and enlisted police and private detectives....

WASHINGTON - Democrats won a narrow majority in the Senate on Tuesday, snatching Republican-held seats in Massachusetts and Indiana and turning back fierce, expensive challenges in Virginia and Ohio to maintain the control they have held since 2007. With a third of the Senate up for election, Republicans were undone by candidate stumbles. GOP candidates in Missouri and Indiana made clumsy statements about rape and abortion that did severe damage to the party's hopes of taking over.

Maine residents on Tuesday approved same-sex marriage, giving the gay-rights movement a breakthrough victory. Gay marriage is legal in six states and Washington D.C., but those laws were either enacted by lawmakers or through court rulings. In popular votes, more than 30 states had previously held elections on same-sex marriage, with all losing. Maine, Maryland and Washington state held up-or-down votes Tuesday on legalizing gay marriage. Minnesota voted on a proposal to ban gay marriage in the state constitution.

The State of Massachusetts closed another compounding pharmacy over the weekend after finding unspecified problems at the facility in the Boston suburb of Waltham that is part of Infusion Resource, a Rhode Island-based company. Madeleine Biondolillo of the state Department of Public Health said in a statement that inspectors found problems during an unannounced visit. She said the facility passed inspection in 2009, but not last week. "Upon arrival," she said in a statement, "inspectors noted significant issues with the environment in which medications were being compounded, which has called into question the company's compliance with nationally accepted pharmacy standards and Massachusetts regulations.

These days, it's tough to remember that sports are just supposed to be fun - taken seriously by the athletes paid to perform, yes, but a only diverting entertainment for the fans, who, after all, are simply watching other people play. On July 5, Boston outfielder Carl Crawford said a fan yelled a racial slur at him at the stadium of the double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats, where the erstwhile Red Sox slugger was playing in a rehab stint with the Portland Sea Dogs. Crawford has not been a favorite of Boston fans since signing a seven-year, $142 million deal last season.
