Brandon Rozzell led four players in double figures and Virginia Commonwealth made 12 three-pointers to stun Georgetown with a 74-56 win that showed any remaining doubters the Rams do, indeed, belong in the NCAA tournament. Rozzell tied his career high with six three-pointers and finished with 26 points, while Joey Rodriguez had 17 points and seven assists. Bradford Burgess and Jamie Skeen added 12 each. It is the first time the 11th-seeded Rams (25-11) have won more than one game in the NCAA tournament, and they'll now play third-seeded Purdue on Sunday in the Southwest Regional.

NEW YORK - Before the Atlantic 10 tournament, it was believed that St. Joseph's needed at least one win to keep its hopes for a bid to the NCAA tournament alive. The Hawks went a number of gigantic steps better. With all five starters playing 37 or more minutes Sunday, St. Joseph's defeated Virginia Commonwealth, 65-61, to win the Atlantic 10 championship at the Barclays Center. The Hawks (24-9) earned the NCAA tournament automatic bid in winning their first A-10 title since 1997.

Five Metro Conference schools have drawn up a plan to kick out Virginia Commonwealth and Virginia Tech, according to a letter faxed to Virginia Commonwealth's president. Originally, North Carolina-Charlotte, Tulane, Southern Mississippi and South Florida were expected to resign from the Metro to form part of a new conference. Instead, they "tentatively plan" to expel the Virginia schools and add Cincinnati, Memphis, De Paul, Marquette, St. Louis, Alabama-Birmingham and Houston to form an expanded Metro for the 1995-96 seasons, the letter said.

Marc Jackson is coming home in just about the strictest sense of the phrase. Jackson, a 6-9 center out of Roman Catholic, said last night that he had completed the process of transferring from Virginia Commonwealth to Temple. He lives near the intersection of Germantown Avenue and Huntingdon Street in North Philadelphia, a short walk from Temple's campus. After sitting out this coming basketball season, Jackson will have three years of eligibility remaining. "I was very unhappy at Virginia Commonwealth.

Episcopal Academy junior Taylor Lucey has a simple philosophy when it comes to scoring goals. On Tuesday afternoon, the Virginia Commonwealth recruit employed the mantra to net the game-winning goal against rival and defending Inter-Ac champion Agnes Irwin. "With shooting," Lucey said, "we always tell everyone, 'Shoot as hard as you can. If you're going to shoot it, shoot it like you're going to shoot it through the goalie.' " With time dwindling in a nip-and-tuck contest at windswept and nippy Episcopal, Lucey controlled the ball in traffic and fired low to give EA an 11-10 victory.

NEW YORK --- Saint Joseph's was picked to finish seventh in the Atlantic 10. So much for projections. Sunday afternoon at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, the Hawks won their second conference title in three seasons, 87-74 over Virginia Commonwealth. The Hawks had beaten regular-season champ Dayton in Saturday's semifinals. The Rams (24-10) were your defending champions. They lost to St. Joe's (27-7) in the 2014 final. The Hawks were also seeded fourth that year. Now, they'll wait back at their hotel to see where they're going in the NCAA tourney and who's the next opponent.

NEW YORK - After being picked to finish seventh, St. Joseph's had a chance to win the Atlantic Ten regular-season title. Instead, the Hawks lost their last two games, including at home to a Duquesne team that hadn't won in a month. Now, they are one win away from earning a second conference tournament championship in three years. "Well, I'll trade you 100 times out of 100 for the feeling now as opposed to last Saturday at 6:30," coach Phil Martelli said after his team's 82-79 victory over top-seeded Dayton in the first half of a semifinal doubheader Saturday at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli said he won't care about revenge or any personal milestones Wednesday night when his team faces St. Bonaventure in a crucial Atlantic Ten basketball game in Rochester, N.Y. All Martelli is worried about is winning, which would keep his team in the running for the top seed in the A-10 tournament. With two games left, one game separates the top four teams. St. Joseph's is 24-5 and 13-3 in the A-10. Virginia Commonwealth (21-8, 13-3) is tied with the Hawks while St. Bonaventure (20-7, 12-4)

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.

Preparing to capture Imhotep junior guard Daron Russell's 1,000th career point, a photographer wondered aloud Tuesday night, minutes before the Panthers hosted rival Martin Luther King. Russell, a 5-foot-11 point guard who can score in bunches, needed 13 points to reach the milestone. "He'll probably get it in the second half, right?" the photographer asked. The answer came with 1 minute, 23 seconds left in the first quarter after Russell hit a step-back three-pointer opposite the King bench, landing him squarely on 13 and 1,000 points.

Let's make this clear: The rise of Isaiah Miles on Hawk Hill is the most important Big Five development this season. Let Miles himself offer a clue as to how it happened. "Burgers," Miles said Monday before practice, in advance of the game Tuesday against Virginia Commonwealth. "I don't eat burgers any more. " Miles was a helpful player for the St. Joseph's Hawks last season. Now he has been a regular force. Since the Hawks already had a force in DeAndre' Bembry, a two-force team is generally a pretty good one. That helps explain the 11-2 Hawks, who already have more wins than all of last season, and are getting top-25 votes in the AP poll.

In middle school, Nicolette Serratore spent her summers training at Methacton with varsity athletes. One of them was Ryann Krais. Serratore watched and idolized Krais, a 2008 graduate who won several state titles and claimed the NCAA championship in the heptathlon at Kansas State in 2011. While Serratore may not notice it, many younger members of the current Methacton team admire her in the same way. "These kids look up to her. They see her as an unbelievable role model," Methacton coach Rob Ronzano said.

PITTSBURGH - Somewhere along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the Saint Joseph's team bus likely stopped to refuel on the way back home from an excruciating loss. Coach Phil Martelli might have been looking to fill up his players, too. After leading by as many as 12 points in the first half, St. Joe's lost to Duquesne, 71-68, last night at the Palumbo Center. "We just didn't play with any juice in the second half," Martelli said. "We didn't have any bounce. We came out really flat, and that turned out to be the difference in the game.
