La Salle proved it is for real. The Explorers, picked to finish 13th in the 14-team Atlantic Ten, recorded a convincing, 80-70, league-opening victory over preseason favorite Xavier Wednesday night at Gola Arena in one of the program's best wins in recent memory. The Explorers (11-4, 1-0 A-10) won their fourth straight and ninth in 10 games while proving they are legitimate after an impressive, out-of-conference record that came against a soft schedule. Earl Pettis had 23 points to pace La Salle, and Ramon Galloway added 16 for the Explorers, who extended their Gola Arena record to 10 straight wins.

Xavier ended a three-game losing streak with an 87-77 win Sunday over Southern Illinois in the seventh-place game of the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu. Before a sparse, morning crowd on Christmas Day, the No. 14 Musketeers (9-3) won for the first time since Dec. 10, when they beat Cincinnati in a game cut short in the closing seconds by brawling and mayhem on the court. This was the first three-game losing streak for Xavier under coach Chris Mack and first since the 2007-08 season.

The hurdles keep coming. Despite a few stumbles, Temple has cleared the obstacles in its path. The Owls have been able to beat a ranked opponent, prevail in hostile road environments, overturn local rivals, and provide late-game heroics. The journey has taken Temple to the top of the Atlantic Ten standings. The next challenge comes Saturday night at the Liacouras Center. And it could be a steep one. Defeating Xavier (16-8, 7-3 A-10) could be the biggest conference win of the season for Temple (18-5, 7-2)

Cincinnati and Xavier each suspended four players Sunday for their parts in Saturday's bench-clearing brawl that forced referees to call the game with 9.4 seconds remaining and the No. 8 Musketeers ahead, 76-53. The Bearcats suspended three of their players for six games each, including forward Yancy Gates, who punched Xavier's Kenny Frease in the face, causing a nasty gash below his left eye, hit at least one other Xavier player during the fracas, and afterward said that the Musketeers have "a whole bunch of gangsters in the locker room.

Temple is Ramone Moore's team. And the Atlantic Ten is the conference he dominates. If there were any doubts that Moore is a legitimate A-10 player-of-the-year candidate, they were erased Saturday night. The fifth-year senior guard led the Owls to an 85-72 victory over conference power Xavier in front of a "whiteout" crowd of 9,370 at the Liacouras Center. Moore flat-out dominated anyone who guarded him, including reigning conference player of the year Tu Holloway.

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.

THE ATLANTIC 10 and Big East start their conference tournaments today with a healthy number of teams eyeing up hitting the refresh button on Joe Lunardi's bracketology page.

Here's a look at the three league's starting today: Atlantic 10 Regular-season champ: Temple won its second title in 3 years. But it's the first outright A-10 championship since 1989.

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.

1. Bubbling up There are only four weeks to go before Selection Sunday and the NCAA tournament bubble is getting quite crowded. Our favorite bracketeers, Joe Lunardi of ESPN.com and Jerry Palm of CollegeRPI.com, provided fresh conjecture on selections Friday, and both have Minnesota and North Carolina State among their last four teams in. But they differ on Miami and Northwestern (Lunardi both out, Palm both in) and on Texas (Lunardi in, Palm out). Other teams that shouldn't make hotel reservations just yet are Colorado State and Washington.
