RICHMOND, Va. - St. Joseph's shot 37 percent from the field here on Saturday in a 77-62 loss to Richmond, but it was breakdowns on the defensive end that frustrated head coach Phil Martelli, whose Hawks saw their four-game winning streak come to an end. "I was disappointed defensively, to be honest with you," Martelli said. "We missed assignments across the board. Not any one guy. Not any one position. We spent a lot of time scouting for it. Unfortunately, we reacted like a road team.

RICHMOND - Derrick Williams scored a career-high 22 points, including a layup with 5.8 seconds left, to lift Richmond to a 78-76 victory over La Salle at the Robins Center last night.

Temple unveiled a grit and resolve Wednesday night that had been absent for some time. Those intangibles helped the Owls post a much-needed, 71-64 victory over Richmond at the Liacouras Center. The Owls lost players to injuries, frittered away a 13-point lead, and saw Darien Brothers turn in a dominant performance for the Spiders. But Temple persevered. Despite the absence of T.J. DiLeo (ankle sprain) and committing 15 turnovers, the Owls (14-6, 3-3 Atlantic Ten) were undeterred.

Villanova's football team has won four in a row since an opening 41-10 loss to Temple, and one reason is that coach Andy Talley and his team don't overlook any opponents. The Wildcats (4-1 overall, 2-0 Colonial Athletic Association) host Richmond (3-2, 1-1) at 6 p.m. Saturday in a CAA matchup at Villanova Stadium. Talley had no shortage of superlatives about the Spiders. "They probably have the most skilled players we have come up against," Talley said. More than Temple?

RICHMOND, Va. - In its previous three games, Temple had an impressive win followed by an unimpressive setback and another impressive win. So true to form, the Owls had an unimpressive loss Saturday night. This time, Richmond defeated Temple, 76-65, here in an Atlantic 10 Conference game at the Robins Center that was more lopsided than the score indicated. "I'm a little bit" concerned, Owls guard Ramone Moore said. "We try to stay consistent as possible as far as winning games.

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Saint Joseph's basketball team arrived midafternoon Wednesday in this town so far east in the state that the Idaho border is just 20 miles away. The Hawks would like to stay a while. Truth be told, they would like to stay until, say Monday, when they would like to catch another flight down the coast to Anaheim, Calif., the site of next week's West Regional. That, of course, would require them to win two NCAA games at Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, first late Friday night against Cincinnati and then almost certainly against Pac-12 champion Oregon Sunday.

Show up regularly enough for Friday night karaoke at Donna's, and the owners of this Polish corner bar in Port Richmond will give you a nickname. There's a retired mailman from down the street who steps into the narrow taproom and becomes Young Blood, a confident front man lacking only a band. There's Gary Bowie - named for his favorite rock star - who looks a bit like the Thin White Duke, if the Thin White Duke hailed from Salmon and Allegheny. There's Coco, the Barbie, Bob the Builder, and Big Al. There's a woman who goes by Fiber One, her nickname the product of a very complicated inside joke.

Hanan Richmond wanted to spend her junior year of high school playing basketball at home in Illinois for Evanston Township. Her senior year, too. She spent the summer unable to accept that it wouldn't be her reality. Her twin sister Iman - older by 23 minutes - felt the same way. "I really didn't want to leave," Iman said. "I tried to do everything not to leave. " She asked her grandmother, aunt and uncle - former NBA player Everette Stephens - to convince her mom, Gail Stephens, to let the 16-year olds stay.

Tractor-trailers are a too-frequent sight on Richmond Street, business owner Tom LaCroix said. "For years, Richmond Street has been unbearable, impassable at times," said LaCroix, owner of an Allstate Insurance office in the neighborhood. A Delaware Avenue extension, for a sixth of a mile, that will give trucks an alternative route of travel between Bridesburg and Port Richmond opened to traffic Tuesday morning. The $14.5 million extension, funded with federal dollars, passes though an industrialized area on land once used for parking between Orthodox and Lewis Streets and over Frankford Creek.
