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.

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.

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.

Demitrius Conger had 22 points and 10 rebounds and St. Bonaventure advanced to the Atlantic Ten Conference championship game by holding off Massachusetts, 84-80, on Saturday afternoon in Atlantic City. Conference player of the year Andrew Nicholson added 19 points for the fourth-seeded Bonnies (19-11), who are now a win away from advancing to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2000. Massachusetts (22-11) rallied from a 16-point deficit with 7 minutes, 29 seconds to play and had a chance to take the lead in the closing seconds, only to see Raphiael Putney's high-arcing three-pointer hit off the side of the rim with less than two seconds to play.

Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree, a 6-foot-8 center at Neumann-Goretti, has committed to play for NCAA tournament champion Villanova. The 215-pound junior and his mother, Ayesha, visited Villanova on Thursday night. "They showed me that the school will be a home away from home for me," he said. "And I love the coaching staff. " Cosby-Roundtree, a solid rebounder and shot blocker, chose the Wildcats over Miami, Providence, Seton Hall, Syracuse, Temple, Virginia Commonwealth, and Xavier, among others.

FOUR YEAR'S ago, Xavier Williams needed direction. He was 22 and had already worked as a department-store security guard, a lifeguard at the YMCA and city pools, and for a company that assembled swing sets. He'd thought about entering an apprenticeship program to become a carpenter, or electrician. Then on a whim he decided to give Holy Family University a try, even though he didn't have good enough grades to play college basketball when he'd graduated from Saul High in 2008. "I'll never forget this," recalled Williams, who'd gone to Community College of Philadelphia for a semester before flunking out but had continued to take some courses there in the interim.

Seton Hall not only wrote an apparent ticket to the NCAA tournament, it now has to be considered a legitimate threat to win the Big East postseason get-together. Desi Rodriguez had career highs of 27 points and 12 rebounds, and Seton Hall all but clinched its first NCAA tournament berth in a decade with a stunning 90-81 victory over No. 5 Xavier in Newark, N.J., on Sunday. "We still have to be selected," said sophomore point guard Isaiah Whitehead, who added 22 points for the Pirates (21-7, 11-5)

MILWAUKEE - Jay Wright knows what some people were thinking, that Villanova might have been better off losing a game after rising to the No. 1 ranking so he would have his players' full attention in fixing some mistakes to help the Wildcats prepare for March. But Wright doesn't subscribe to that sort of thinking. He said Friday that the Wildcats made a plethora of little mistakes including "defensive assignments" and "unintelligent fouls" Wednesday night against No. 5 Xavier that added up to a 90-83 loss on the road.

CINCINNATI - When Villanova routed Xavier at the Pavilion on New Year's Eve, people wondered how much more competitive the game would have been had freshman point guard Edmond Sumner not left three minutes in after a scary fall that sent him to the hospital with a concussion. On Wednesday night, before a record crowd of 10,727 at the Cintas Center, Sumner was back, well and healthy, for the rematch. The difference he made in the game - 19 points, nine assists, six rebounds - was immense in the fifth-ranked Musketeers' 90-83 victory over Villanova in the Big East game of the year.

Villanova has walked into some hostile arenas this season and has emerged with a victory all but once - way back in December at Virginia. But when the Wildcats arrive Wednesday night at the Cintas Center for their game against No. 5 Xavier, they will be put to the ultimate test. The Musketeers (24-3, 12-3 Big East) are 13-1 on their home court this season, 6-1 in the conference. Since they began playing in their campus facility in the 2000-01 season, they have compiled a 214-31 record, a winning percentage of 87.4.

Four Big East teams were ranked in the Associated Press top 25 when the conference schedule began two weeks ago, but the coach of one of those teams, Xavier's Chris Mack, sounded like a voice of reason in singling out Villanova. "They're the best team in our conference until proven otherwise," Mack said, referring to Nova's back-to-back regular-season titles and the 2015 tournament championship. Through the first four games of the Big East season, the sixth-ranked Wildcats (14-2)

When 16th-ranked Villanova makes shots, especially from the perimeter, it can handle just about anything the food chain has to offer. And when the Wildcats don't, well, ask Oklahoma how far south that can go. On Monday, the Cats converted 1 of 11 from the arc against Penn. It didn't matter, because they're a much better team. But Thursday afternoon, again at the Pavilion, the opponent in their Big East opener was the No. 6 team in the nation in Xavier, one of three from the conference perched above the unanimous preseason favorite in the polls.

Villanova ruled league play in the first two seasons of the reconfigured Big East. The Wildcats went 32-4 in winning a pair of regular-season titles along with the 2015 conference tournament championship and held the highest seed of any league team in the last two NCAA tournaments. However, those days of dominance for the Wildcats could be coming to an end. If the pre-conference season is any indication, the Big East could have its biggest free-for-all yet in terms of multiple teams scrambling to wrestle the top spot from Villanova.
