When the snow stopped and daylight arrived Monday, the St. Joseph's women had reflected for a day. It turns out that the 58-53 loss to Fordham at Hagan Arena a day earlier did not do much damage to the Hawks' chances of returning to the NCAA tournament. The Hawks (21-8) dropped to a fifth seed for this week's Atlantic Ten tournament in Richmond, Va., where they will open Thursday against George Mason or Massachusetts. But ESPN's Charlie Creme still had coach Cindy Griffin's team in the NCAA field as a ninth seed with no bubble status attached.

At practice, Villanova women's basketball coach Harry Perretta sometimes hears one of his players giving a teammate a hard time, so he turns around, ready to tell her to knock it off. Then he'll see it's the twins. No way he's getting in the middle of that , Perretta said, not when sophomore guards Caroline and Katherine Coyer occasionally start in on each other.

In 2013, the young females put a whipping on the young males when it came to creating fresh, intelligent country music. You could say it was a Pistol-whipping, as in the Pistol Annies, along with Kacey Musgraves, Brandy Clark, solo Pistol Ashley Monroe, and such young veterans as LeAnn Rimes and Kellie Pickler. Now two of country's best young mainstream male stars, Eric Church and Dierks Bentley, are back, and they begin to reset the balance as their new albums headline some notable country and roots releases.

Police say the man tends to strike early, choosing women walking to work or running errands. He comes at them from behind, mutters a threat, and sometimes brandishes a knife. He leaves with purses, wallets, phones - even groceries. And police believe he has targeted at least eight women in and around Overbrook Park in the last month and a half. Southwest Detectives Capt. John Przepiorka on Tuesday announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person behind a series of purse snatchings west of Morris Park in Overbrook that began Jan. 8 on the 1300 block of Pennington Road.

TWO TEMPLE athletic programs - men's crew and women's rowing - received reprieves yesterday, some 10 weeks after being informed that they were being cut by the university's administration. But four others - baseball, softball and men's indoor/outdoor track - will still be eliminated on July 1, as announced last December. Men's gymnastics will continue, albeit at the club level, with promised financial support from Temple's Board of Trustees. That's the game plan that emerged from a special board meeting at Sullivan Hall.

SOCHI - The game was so captivating, the play so intense, the result so dramatic and emotionally charged that the ho-hum aspect of yet another Canada-United States Olympic women's hockey final was, on this night anyway, transcended. Less than four minutes from their first gold medal in 16 years, the U.S. women blew a 2-0 lead in regulation, then fell in overtime, 3-2, to the team that now has won the last four Olympic gold medals. "It's the worst feeling in the world," U.S. forward Kelli Stack said.
