Chris Heinrich likes to create. When he attended Church Farm School in Chester County, he won an art award for pottery three consecutive years, and he's always being asked to make something in pottery or ceramics. Now, on the basketball court, Heinrich continues to create an effective game to help Saint Louis, the surprise tournament champion of Conference USA, enjoy success in the national tournament. The Billikens (19-13) last week won four games in four days, one of six teams in NCAA history to perform the feat, to gain the conference's automatic bid. And Heinrich, a 6-foot-11 junior from Quakertown, was instrumental in the team's 56-49 win in the championship game over DePaul, scoring 11 points and knocking down a pair of free throws with 21 seconds to play.

SAINT LOUIS - After permitting a season-high 87 points in a loss to Dayton on Saturday, Temple coach Fran Dunphy expected his team to respond with a much-improved defensive effort against Saint Louis. Although the Billikens nearly matched their season averages in points and field-goal percentage, the Owls made enough stops in the second half to come away with the 72-67 win over Saint Louis before 8,760 at raucous Chaifetz Arena. "I was pleased with our defensive effort," Temple coach Fran Dunphy said.

Tommie Liddell scored 24 points, Ian Vouyoukas tallied 21 and Saint Louis might have ended Massachusetts' dreams of an NCAA Tournament bid with a 74-71 overtime victory in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 Tournament last night. The second-seeded Minutemen (23-8) needed to make a statement in the tournament to impress the NCAA Selection Committee, and losing their first game to the seventh-seeded Billikens (20-12) wasn't the way to do it. Saint Louis, which overcame an eight-point halftime deficit, scored the first seven points in overtime and then held on to win. A three-pointer by James Life with 32.5 seconds to play got Massachusetts to within 73-71, and the Minutemen got the ball back with 18.1 seconds on a backcourt violation.

PLAYING SAINT LOUIS is the basketball equivalent of a trip to the dentist office. Sit in the chair for 2 hours while the shrill of the drill drones on. All you can do is hope to survive and lose as little blood as possible. The Billikens play mean defense. In the parking lot, their car is too close to yours. In the concession line, they are putting the straw in your soda. In the washroom . . . OK, you get the point. They are everywhere. The task facing Saint Joseph's last night was to try and shake Saint Louis long enough to walk away with a win. They squirmed, but couldn't get out of the chair and lost, 72-60.

JORDAIR JETT matched his career best with 19 points and Saint Louis pressured No. 9 Butler into a season-worst 23 turnovers, recording the program's biggest upset in 9 years with a 75-58 victory Thursday night that had fans storming the court to celebrate. Dwayne Evans added 15 points on 6-for-8 shooting and five rebounds for the Billikens (15-5, 4-2 Atlantic-10), who fed off just the fourth sellout at 5-year-old Chaifetz Arena and led by double digits most of the game. Saint Louis shot 50 percent.

Fran Dunphy isn't sure which learned basketball philosopher first coined the phrase "offense is part inspiration, but defense is all perspiration. " The Temple coach just knows that it's true. Shooters run hot and cold, but unrelenting effort on the defensive end can be a constant. Despite the frigid temperatures outside the Liacouras Center and the even frostier shooting percentages inside it, the Owls' 57-53 squeaker over Saint Louis yesterday afternoon was emblematic of the sort of steam-steam persistence that is required to win when even the most makable shots are clanging off the rim or rolling out. And with steady point guard Juan Fernandez sidelined with a bone bruise to his left knee and twin towers Lavoy Allen and Micheal Eric foul-plagued and ineffective, Dunphy had to come up with a second-half answer, quickly, or risk being upset by the always-scrappy but supposedly outmanned Billikens.

Saint Louis hired Rick Majerus yesterday, a move that signals the school's intentions of becoming a Top 50 national program. Father Lawrence Biondi, the school president, announced the hiring in a statement. Majerus, a college basketball analyst for ESPN the last 3 years, has a career record of 422-147 with 15 postseason appearances. The school will introduce Majerus at a news conference Monday morning. "I am extremely excited about having a person of Rick Majerus' stature and reputation at the helm of our men's basketball team," Biondi said.

While both Saint Louis and Temple are known for their stifling defenses, only one - 20th-ranked Temple - has shown enough consistent ability on the offensive end from the beginning of the season. But that didn't matter much to surging Saint Louis last night, at least not in the early going, when the Owls made their first-ever visit to Chaifetz Arena and managed to escape with a 57-51 victory. The Billikens, the fourth-place team in the Atlantic 10, opened up a nine-point advantage (24-15)

The word is that Larry Hughes could be the next great one. A 6-foot-5 freshman guard for Saint Louis, Hughes will put his considerable skills on display today when the Billikens (22-10) meet the Kentucky Wildcats (30-4) in a second-round NCAA tournament game at the Georgia Dome. He was Conference USA's second-leading scorer at 21 points per game this season, and was the second-leading freshman scorer in the country behind Michael Redd of Ohio State (21.8 ppg.). "There are only seven letters to describe Hughes: L-O-T-T-E-R-Y," said Valparaiso coach Homer Drew.

IN THIS season of their discontent, the La Salle Explorers' sanctuary has been Gola Arena. After beating Saint Louis there Wednesday night, 76-68, they are 7-7 at home. The rest of the story is their being 1-13 elsewhere - 0-2 neutral, 1-11 road, with that win against Rowan. A 58-41 lead with nine minutes left got down to 73-68 with 50 seconds remaining, but the Explorers held on. La Salle (8-20, 4-13 Atlantic 10) has now won three of five after losing 10 straight. If only next week's A-10 Tournament were played at 20th and Olney instead of Brooklyn.

WITH TWO games to go before the Atlantic 10 Tournament in Brooklyn, N.Y., Saint Joseph's is tied for first place with Virginia Commonwealth. What else do you really need to compute? The Hawks, who were picked to finish seventh after winning 13 times last season, beat Saint Louis Sunday afternoon at Hagan Arena, 77-63. That makes them 24-5, 13-3 in the conference, their best record through 28 games since the 2003-04 team that reached No. 1 was 27-1. VCU (21-8, 13-3) won Saturday at George Washington.

ONE GAME can do a lot to the psyche of a college athlete. At least that's what La Salle is hoping proves true as it begins play in the Atlantic 10 Tournament today at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. The ninth-seeded Explorers tip off with No. 8 Massachusetts at noon. And they're hoping the game that preceded it has a lot of affect on today's outcome and beyond. That game, of course, is La Salle's 55-53 victory Saturday over second-seeded Dayton - a team that was just outside the Top 25 last week - on Senior Night at Tom Gola Arena.

ST. LOUIS - In the past four seasons, whenever the La Salle Explorers have held a late lead, you could pull out the Sharpie and mark a "W" in the book. But not yesterday afternoon at Saint Louis University. Despite leading for virtually all of the first 39 minutes, the Explorers were unable to close the deal and ended up losing, 68-64, in overtime to the Atlantic 10's last-place team. It marked only the fifth time in the past 74 games since 2011-12 that the Explorers were defeated when they led with 5 minutes to go. The loss dropped La Salle (15-12, 7-7)
