Temple shrugged off a terrible start and raced to a thrilling finish in last night's Atlantic Ten Conference women's basketball championship. However, the Owls fell just short in overtime against fifth-ranked Xavier in a 57-55 loss at the Show Place Arena. Temple had a chance to tie the game in the closing seconds, but Qwedia Wallace's short shot from the edge of the paint bounced off the rim. "Our guys played a hell of a game and deserved to win," Temple coach Tonya Cardoza said of her team's recovery from a 14-0 deficit at the outset.

Amber Harris scored a season-high 23 points and No. 6 Xavier earned its 10th straight win with a 63-56 victory over visiting Saint Joseph's in a women's basketball matchup last night. Xavier (19-3, 9-0 Atlantic 10) opened with an 11-0 run and never trailed. The Hawks (12-12, 4-4) used an 11-0 run that cut the lead to 59-56 with 55 seconds left. Michelle Baker led Saint Joseph's with 12 points. In another women's game: At Temple, the Owls (18-6) scored 39 points in the second half en route to a 66-54 win over UMass (9-15)

Abington Friends graduate Jason Love got his 19th rebound with 9.8 seconds left and made a clinching free throw, leading Xavier to an 83-79 double-overtime victory over No. 19 Cincinnati last night in a nasty and classic renewal of their crosstown rivalry. Xavier (6-3) wasted a 10-point lead in regulation, survived Lance Stephenson's off-target shot at the end of the first overtime, then pulled it out on its home court behind its lone senior. Cincinnati (6-2) has dropped three straight and 10 of the last 14 against Xavier.

Already, things are falling into place. Yesterday, less than 24 hours after learning Rutgers and West Virginia were leaving to join the Big East in 1995-96, the Atlantic 10, as anticipated, invited Xavier to join. This likely will not be the A-10's last expansion move. But getting Xavier from the beleaguered Midwestern Collegiate Conference is a solid step in the right direction. "We are elated, given (Xavier's) outstanding reputation both academically and athletically," said A-10 commissioner Ron Bertovich, who is leaving after the season to take a job with a cable company in Buffalo.

Xavier's chances were hurt when its best player was hurt. Center David West sprained an ankle, and the Musketeers fell to crosstown rival Cincinnati last night, 75-55. Steve Logan scored 22 points for the Bearcats. The crosstown rivalry revolved around West, the Atlantic 10 Player of the Year, and Logan, who won the honor in Conference USA. In the second half, West hobbled while Logan led Cincinnati to a long-awaited win. The Bearcats (7-1) had lost four of their last five against Xavier (5-3)

Whether or not this is the effort that turns around the fortunes for St. Joseph's basketball team, the chance that this season will slide away has at least been delayed. Langston Galloway and Carl Jones keyed a late second-half flurry as St. Joseph's scored a 59-49 win over Xavier in an Atlantic Ten game Saturday at Hagan Arena. Coming off a 73-64 home loss Wednesday to visiting St. Bonaventure, St. Joseph's improved to 11-7, and 2-3 in the A-10. Xavier, which owns A-10 wins over La Salle and Temple, is 11-8, 4-2. Galloway, Jones, and Halil Kanacevic each had 15 points for the Hawks, who scored the game's final 12 points.

Josh Duncan scored 23 points, B.J. Raymond added 14 and No. 10 Xavier overcame a furious second-half run to hold on for an 81-77 win over host Rhode Island last night. The win was Xavier's eighth straight and the 14th in its last 15 games, as the Musketeers (22-4, 10-1 Atlantic 10) also won their fifth straight on the road. Parfait Bitee scored 25 points and Will Daniels added 23 for the Rams (20-6, 6-5). In other games: At Providence, Roy Hibbert had 18 points and Jonathan Wallace added 14 and No. 12 Georgetown (21-4, 11-3 Big East)

ATLANTA - Quincy Acy, the only senior in Baylor's starting lineup, had a double-double to help the Bears hold off Xavier, 75-70, on Friday night and advance to their second regional final in three years. Baylor will face the Kentucky-Indiana winner in Sunday's South Regional final. Acy had 20 points and 15 rebounds. He sank two free throws with 31 seconds remaining after Xavier cut the Bears' lead to six points. Baylor coach Scott Drew said it never gets old watching Acy play.

The moon and stars must be in the right alignment for La Salle women's coach John Miller. His Explorers gave him a belated birthday present yesterday with a 63-61 upset of Xavier of Ohio in an Atlantic Ten game at the Tom Gola Arena. The victory followed another piece of good luck for Miller, who gained a small financial prize by playing his daughter's birth date in the Pennsylvania lottery Friday. "We were supposed to play on Friday," Miller said of the one-day delay caused by Xavier's weather-related travel problems.

Tenth-seeded Temple upset seventh-seeded Xavier in the first-round of the Atlantic Ten women's basketball tournament at Hagen Arena on Friday. Victoria Macaulay scored 12 points and hauled in a game-high 14 rebounds to lead the Owls (13-17) to a quarterfinal matchup with second-seeded Charlotte (24-4) on Saturday at 5 p.m. Rateska Brown came off the bench to score a game-high 14 points for the Owls. Xavier (13-16) took a 12-3 advantage early, but an 18-3 Temple run in the second half put the game out of reach for Xavier.

NEW YORK - Jay Wright always liked talking about the only Villanova team to win a Big East tournament championship, knowing the 1994-95 group led by Kerry Kittles, Alvin Williams, and Jason Lawson held a special place in the annals of the Wildcats' basketball program. Twenty years later, a second Villanova team has joined the '95 group in the same history-making moment. The Wildcats jumped on Xavier right away, led by 16 points in the first half, and never allowed the Musketeers to mount a rally Saturday night.

CINCINNATI - Before the first whistle even sounded Saturday in the Cintas Center, Villanova officially had captured the Big East Conference regular-season championship. But the sixth-ranked Wildcats wanted to put an exclamation point on the achievement against Xavier. The Cats stunned the excited sellout crowd of 10,250 in the second half by rallying from a nine-point deficit, limiting the Musketeers to one three-point basket and 32-percent shooting, and rolling to a 78-66 victory, their 10th consecutive win. The Wildcats (27-2, 14-2 Big East)

CINCINNATI - If it's a Saturday afternoon in the Big East, it must be sixth-ranked Villanova on the road in a hostile environment, the target of a packed arena full of loud fans and an opponent that can salvage a bad season or enhance its NCAA chances with a win over the Wildcats. Villanova had this scenario each of the last two Saturdays, picking up victories at Butler and at Marquette, and now heads into a matchup against Xavier at the Cintas Center, where the Musketeers are 202-29 (.874)

WHEN VILLANOVA lost by 20 at Georgetown on Jan. 19, it understandably left some folks wondering. Just as they probably did after the Wildcats stumbled in their Big East opener on Jan. 3 at Seton Hall, the same team that upset them in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament 10 months earlier. News flash: Every team this side of Kentucky will drop some games. It's mostly a matter of when, how and how many. Well, the nation's sixth-ranked team hasn't lost since that trip to Washington.

Unable to dent the Xavier defense inside, Villanova decided Wednesday night to live or die by the three-point shot. And the fifth-ranked Wildcats lived, knocking down a season-high 15 baskets from deep to gain an 88-75 Big East Conference victory over the Musketeers at the Pavilion. The Wildcats (16-1, 4-1 Big East) fired 55.7 percent (34 of 61), a season high, of their shots from beyond the arc. Ryan Arcidiacono, their high scorer with 18 points, sank four and Dylan Ennis (17 points)

THE ONLY BAD news coming out of the Pavilion Wednesday night was that the game was on Jan. 14 and not on March 14. If, in 2 months, Villanova is still playing at the level it did against Xavier in the game's first 12 minutes, prepare for March postseason games that could take this team all the way to April. The ball moved so fast from side to side that the spectators may have gotten dizzy. Imagine what it felt like to be a defender. Xavier was game enough. The Musketeers simply could not keep up with the ball movement and what happened when the ball finally stopped in the hands of a shooter had to be disheartening.

NASHVILLE - "Worth the wait" has become motto for Maryland senior Katie Rutan this weekend in the NCAA Women's Final Four at the Bridgestone Arena. Of all the players here from Connecticut (38-0), Stanford (33-3), Notre Dame (36-0), and Rutan's Terrapins squad (28-6), the graduate of Springside School has traveled the most circuitous route in reaching the national semifinals. "Yeah, I remember, trust me," Rutan, a 5-foot-9 guard, said Saturday afternoon of her freshman season at Xavier in 2010.
