LA SALLE and Saint Joseph's will each open on Saturday, Nov. 9, the Explorers at home against Manhattan and the Hawks at Vermont. They each play an in-season tournament in the sunshine, La Salle in the Paradise Jam (St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands) and SJU in the Old Spice (Orlando). And, unlike recent seasons when they played each other once at the Palestra, they will play twice, with each game on campus. The Palestra is booked for wrestling events on Feb. 15 when SJU will be at Gola Arena for an 11 a.m. game on ESPNU and on March 9 when La Salle will be on Hawk Hill for a 4 p.m. game on CBSSN.

WITH TWO PLAYERS on scholarship among its seniors (Tay Jones, Taylor Trevisan), Saint Joseph's recruiting class was never going to be big. At the moment, it is a one-player class. SJU has announced the signing of 6-6 wing DeAndre Bembry from The Patrick School (Elizabeth, N.J.) for the Class of 2013. "DeAndre is a winning basketball player," SJU coach Phil Martelli said. "He has multiple skills along with a long list of qualities, as described by his coaches, of being a tremendous teammate and having a great understanding of the game.

WHEN YOU WATCHED Saint Joseph's the last few seasons, one missing ingredient was athleticism on the wing. That problem appears to have been solved. SJU got a very significant commitment yesterday from James Demery, a very athletic 6-6 wing from Northside Christian Academy in Charlotte, N.C. Demery was looking at schools like Virginia Tech, Miami, Tennessee and Oklahoma State. He is ranked as the 82nd-best player in the country by ESPN. His AAU and assistant high school coach is Jeff McInnis, a former North Carolina and NBA player.

IF SELECTION Sunday was yesterday, Saint Joseph's would have been just in or just out of the 68-team field, but definitely under consideration for one of the 37 at-large spots. After finishing off the most difficult six-game stretch of its season with a 75-64 win at La Salle on Saturday, SJU absolutely has taken advantage of its opportunity by going 4-2, winning twice on the road and beating NCAA locks VCU and Massachusetts. Still, unlike fellow Atlantic 10 teams UMass and George Washington, the Hawks do not have any marquee non-conference wins.

PAT CARROLL will be inducted into the Saint Joseph's men's basketball Hall of Fame on April 13.

He owns the school records for career three-point field goals (294), three-point percentage (.445) and three-point attempts (661), while setting the single-season marks in 2004-05 for three-pointers (135) and attempts (311). The 6-5 forward tallied 1,324 points in his career, ranking him 25th on SJU's all-time list.

NEW YORK - When they held Atlantic 10 media day at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in October, Saint Joseph's won a photo finish over Saint Louis as the preseason pick to win the league. It was a false expectation that these Hawks never came close to fulfilling. They had flaws, some obvious on the court, other behind the scenes. Over time, the record revealed the reality. Friday night at the Barclays, in the A-10 Tournament quarterfinals, Virginia Commonwealth exposed every one of the Hawks' shortcomings in a breathtaking, second-half flurry that buried the Hawks under a mountain of points and a defense that kept attacking.

POINTS WERE always going to be a premium this season for Saint Joseph's, as the Hawks lost so much scoring from the Atlantic 10 champions. Hard to tell what was going to be up with Drexel's offense as two potential starters were on the bench last night, wearing matching walking boots. Legendary University of the Sciences coach Dave Pauley, seated right behind press row at Drexel's DAC, watched the first few minutes last night and declared "first team to 50 wins. " He was correct.

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Arena overlooks what, decades ago, the locals termed the "fast water" of Spokane Falls, formed 15,000 or so years ago when Glacial Lake Missoula flowed down into the valley and slowly began to cut through the rocks. These days, suspension bridges overlook the majesty of the raging waters, the largest in-city waterfall in America. If there is one thing Saint Joseph's would like to do in Friday night's NCAA game against glacial Cincinnati, it is play fast, like that water headed over the falls, play in the open court, play as few times as possible against the Bearcats' set defense.

I T WAS just 3 1/2 minutes, but it was those moments in a game Saint Joseph's eventually would lose when coach Phil Martelli believed his team had a chance to be very good. The Hawks trailed Villanova, 52-37, at Hagan Arena on Dec. 1. After those 210 seconds, they trailed just 54-49. "I wanted to see how we would react to getting so far behind," Martelli remembered. "During that game, I said, 'There's something here.' " After the game, Martelli told his team they could be the best team in the Atlantic 10. They were close enough.

MY TOP FOUR NCAA Tournament seeds if the selections were today. East: Villanova South: Oklahoma Midwest: Iowa West: North Carolina It was a very good week for Villanova when it played and when North Carolina played. After leading all the way Saturday afternoon at Providence and winning 72-60, the Wildcats (20-3, 10-1 Big East) have vaulted past UNC for the No. 1 seed in the East after Carolina lost at Louisville Monday and at Notre Dame Saturday night. The parts are still moving and nothing has been decided with 'Nova, UNC, Maryland and Virginia all still in play for the East's top seed.

MY TOP four NCAA Tournament seeds if the selections were today. East: North Carolina South: Oklahoma Midwest: Iowa West: Villanova Each tournament selection committee is different, but if there is one common denominator among members through the years, it would be the value of road wins. After all, teams do not play NCAA Tournament games on regular home courts. If the selections were today, Saint Joseph's almost certainly would be in the field because, after winning Saturday at Rhode Island, 64-55, the Hawks (18-3, 7-1 Atlantic 10)

WHEN IT GETS to late January and you have been practicing for 100 days and playing for 70, the basketball sometimes will look less than pretty, the end too far away to consider, the grind starting to wear even on teams that have been winning all season. That was Saint Joseph's on Wednesday night at Hagan Arena against a Massachusetts team that had not won since its last trip to Philadelphia on Jan. 3 against La Salle. It was one of those games a team with NCAA Tournament aspirations simply has to win, no matter which way it went down.

THE HOME TEAM had lost 10 of 11. The visitors had won 11 of 12. Naturally, after 12 minutes late Sunday afternoon at Gola Arena, La Salle led Saint Joseph's, 19-8. The Hawks looked somewhere between uninterested and stuck in a giant snow drift. It was, of course, a mirage. La Salle is doing the best it can with what it has, which isn't nearly enough. It was just a question of when the game was going to turn. When it turned, it turned hard. The Hawks' defense suffocated the Explorers; they got out and began to run. The La Salle lead evaporated rapidly.

VILLANOVA is rolling right along - unbeaten again, playing great defense again, crushing every team it plays again. Saint Joseph's is clearly better than last season, but are the Hawks good enough to hang with the Wildcats or possibly upset them Tuesday night at Hagan Arena? Last season's game was non-competitive, a 74-46 'Nova win. That margin was not a fluke. Two years ago, it was Villanova, 98-68. That margin was a fluke. In the second half that night at Hagan, the Wildcats shot 11-for-14 from three while the Hawks, a team that would close 20-5 on its way to an Atlantic 10 championship, were 0-for-9.
