La Salle knows what it wants to do in a game, but the Explorers found out yesterday that teams such as Xavier can make opponents look as if they have no idea. The Musketeers, who are ranked 15th by the Associated Press and 16th in USA Today/ESPN coaches' poll, gave La Salle almost no chance to execute its game plan. The Explorers never led - the score, in fact, was never tied - and set a season low for points while trailing by as many as 22 in a 73-53 Atlantic 10 loss at Xavier's Cintas Center.

That defensive intensity La Salle supposedly had rediscovered? It's been misplaced again. The Explorers spent a frustrating evening in search of anyone or anything that might slow down 21st-ranked Xavier in last night's 91-59 loss in the CoreStates Spectrum. For the Musketeers' offense, meanwhile, "X" marked the spot all over the floor. Xavier sank 18 of its first 20 shots to open the game, scoring inside and outside with almost ridiculous ease. It was 52-35 at halftime and La Salle coach Speedy Morris was plumb out of ideas.

What is it about The Three Musketeers that still captures our imagination? Quintessence Theatre Group's new adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' sprawling adventure novel makes some excellent arguments for its continued longevity. The rallying cry, "All for one and one for all!" surely resonates at a time when our nation is nearly as fragmented as Dumas' prerevolutionary France. It also helps that the way Dumas depicts serious conflicts among church, monarchy, and citizens enables much swashbuckling and romance.

Emerging from the Wilma Theater Wednesday, my companion quipped that the season opener, The 3 Musketeers, reminded him of Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author. Except that there were twelve instead. I noted that in this case the players themselves were the authors - which was the problem. There's not much wrong with this very free adaptation of Alexander Dumas' classic novel except for the script. But that's too big a failing to ignore. Instead of producing its own show for once, the Wilma invited as its guests the Theatre de la Jeune Lune, an avant-garde Franco-American theater company from Minneapolis.

You're up five points. You have the ball. You're at home. Your opponent is 32 points below its season average. You watch the clock tick below three minutes. The game should be yours. Your four-game losing streak should be history. You should be celebrating in less than 180 seconds. There is a celebration, but it's not yours. St. Joseph's won a lot of little battles against Xavier last night at the Fieldhouse. Freshman center Damian Reid (career-high 23 points, 13 rebounds, nine offensive, four blocks)

The hard-charging Xavier basketball team came into the Liacouras Center last night to challenge 16th-ranked Temple in an Atlantic Ten contest that would leave the winner in first place in the conference. And a challenge is exactly what the Owls got from the unranked Musketeers, who are the three-time regular-season A-10 champions. Xavier was persistent until the end, but the Owls showed their mettle by holding on for a 77-72 victory before a crowd of 6,813. Temple guard Ryan Brooks, who finished with a game-high 22 points, drained six foul shots during the last 22 seconds to put Xavier away.

There are few Philadelphia-area holiday traditions quite as inclusive as People's Light annual musical panto. It provides, without any grinchy implications, an alternative to seasonal religious celebrations. It's fun for all and all for fun, an entirely appropriate position, particularly considering the subject of this year's effort: The Three Musketeers (The Later Years) . Newcomers to the panto, primarily a British yuletide entertainment, will see some standard practice in this year's model.

For one half yesterday, La Salle coach Speedy Morris thought he had something going. His two ace scorers, Rasual Butler and Victor Thomas, were drilling baskets at nearly a 50 percent clip against Xavier and keeping the Explorers with the preseason favorite to win the Atlantic Ten Conference title. But the Musketeers controlled Butler and shut down Thomas in the second half, and got their inside game cooking behind a 6-foot-8 sophomore center, David West, to run away to an 81-66 victory in the first A-10 contest at Xavier's new Cintas Center.

Preoccupied by thoughts of all-American David West and 11th-ranked Xavier, St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli began game planning for the Hawks' most anticipated game so far this season by attending Mass on Sunday morning. Twice. "After watching them on tape two times, I didn't think once would be enough," Martelli said. If divine intervention isn't enough to get it done when the Musketeers and St. Joe's go at it tonight at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse, the raucous crowd that will be shoehorned into the cozy little gym plans to give a full-throated boost to the Hawks.

James Posey came off the bench looking to help out any way he could. He ended up with a career night. Posey had a career-high 22 points, and he and Gary Lumpkin combined for the final 20 points as Xavier held off Vanderbilt, 80-68, last night in the first round of the Midwest Regional. Lumpkin finished with 16 points. Posey downplayed his effort for the Musketeers. "Our team is very unselfish. There was no real chemistry with me and Gary," he said. "We just found the open guy. " Coach Skip Prosser didn't want to take anything away from Posey and Lumpkin, but he couldn't disagree.

CINCINNATI - If it's a Saturday afternoon in the Big East, it must be sixth-ranked Villanova on the road in a hostile environment, the target of a packed arena full of loud fans and an opponent that can salvage a bad season or enhance its NCAA chances with a win over the Wildcats. Villanova had this scenario each of the last two Saturdays, picking up victories at Butler and at Marquette, and now heads into a matchup against Xavier at the Cintas Center, where the Musketeers are 202-29 (.874)

There are very few places left on the tube that offer well-made, old-fashioned swashbuckling fare fit for adults and tweens alike. It's a role BBC America has played well for some time with richly produced, wonderfully acted series such as Sinbad , Atlantis , and now, The Musketeers . Premiering at 9 p.m. Sunday with a 10-episode first season, The Musketeers is a lush, rousing iteration of the classic Alexandre Dumas story featuring...

CINCINNATI - No one said it would be easy for Villanova to come to Xavier and play in a venue where the host team had lost just one game all season and clinch the Big East Conference regular-season championship, even though the Musketeers were without their best inside player. Well, if you're attempting to win the outright crown for the first time since the 1981-82 season, it's not supposed to be easy. With a 12-point lead late, what looked like a 'Nova victory Thursday night turned into a scary experience in the final 1 minute, 11 seconds before free throws by Josh Hart and James Bell finally salted away the sixth-ranked Wildcats' 77-70 victory at the Cintas Center and the No. 1 seed in next week's conference tournament.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Not even Damion Lee's return to the starting lineup Friday night could keep Drexel from another late collapse in the DirecTV Classic at the Anaheim Convention Center. Despite Lee's season-high 19 points, the Dragons endured a 69-65 loss to Xavier. They will play Drake or Rice in their final tournament game Sunday at 4 p.m. Lee, who missed the previous two games with an injured back and neck, added four rebounds in 32 minutes. Frantz Massenat matched his season high with 18 points.

ATLANTA - Quincy Acy, the only senior in Baylor's starting lineup, had a double-double to help the Bears hold off Xavier, 75-70, on Friday night and advance to their second regional final in three years. Baylor will face the Kentucky-Indiana winner in Sunday's South Regional final. Acy had 20 points and 15 rebounds. He sank two free throws with 31 seconds remaining after Xavier cut the Bears' lead to six points. Baylor coach Scott Drew said it never gets old watching Acy play.

Demitrius Conger had 22 points and 10 rebounds and St. Bonaventure advanced to the Atlantic Ten Conference championship game by holding off Massachusetts, 84-80, on Saturday afternoon in Atlantic City. Conference player of the year Andrew Nicholson added 19 points for the fourth-seeded Bonnies (19-11), who are now a win away from advancing to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2000. Massachusetts (22-11) rallied from a 16-point deficit with 7 minutes, 29 seconds to play and had a chance to take the lead in the closing seconds, only to see Raphiael Putney's high-arcing three-pointer hit off the side of the rim with less than two seconds to play.

It was an Atlantic Ten test that Temple aced. Going up against a conference power in a nationally televised game, the Owls handed Xavier an 85-72 loss in front of a "Whiteout" crowd of 9,370 at the Liacouras Center on Saturday night. Temple (19-5, 8-2 A-10) dominated from the start until a couple of garbage buckets made it look respectable. "This was just one of those games where we knew they were just trying to come in and beat us," Owls guard Ramone Moore said. "The excitement and everything about the game was hyped up and we just wanted to live up to it. " In doing just that, Temple maintained a half-game lead ahead of St. Louis atop the conference standings.

CINCINNATI - St. Joseph's had one thing going for it entering Wednesday night's game here. Still, having history on its side didn't exactly give the Hawks much of a reason to look on the bright side. St. Joseph's was the last Atlantic Ten Conference team to defeat Xavier at the Cintas Center, and that was almost six years ago. On this night, however, the game couldn't have gone much worse for the visitors, who learned just before tipoff that they would be without Carl Jones, their injured leading scorer.
