Game 27: St. Joseph's vs. Temple

Can the Hawks derail the Owls' NCAA Tournament dreams? Or will Temple make it a three-game season sweep?

Game 27: St. Joseph's vs. Temple


ATLANTIC CITY - Just our luck: St. Joe's and Temple are tipping off at the same time as Villanova's Big East Tournament quarterfinal.

I do not have access to ESPN on press row, but I'll try to keep an eye on the score in some form. If there are big plays, you're welcome to comment on them.

A reminder that I can only offer updates from this game during media timeouts because of Atlantic 10 restrictions on live-blogging. But I'll give you as much as I can, and of course you all can and should say as much as you want.

What I know I can give you is an interview with Joe Lunardi that I recorded just now. Listen to it in the audio player below, but be aware it was recorded before Northwestern lost to Minnesota in the Big Ten Tournament's first game of the day.

So let's get this thing going. All that bureaucracy doesn't make this game any less significant - the Owls have to keep winning to keep their NCAA Tournament dreams alive, and the Hawks would surely like nothing more than to personally end Temple's season.

(And by the way, your eyes do not deceive you: Games 24 and 25 were last night's doubleheader and Game 26 was Xavier's win over Saint Louis in today's first game.)
