The Big 5 recently had an awards dinner and jamboree and gave...

DeAndre' Bembry Living In The Moment Between Two Paths Of His Career

DeAndre' Bembry lives in the moment. It should be difficult for the versatile forward, balancing postseason aspirations and a possible jump to the NBA after his junior season, but the Atlantic 10 Player of the Year is commendably extracting the most out of what could be his final season at Saint Joseph's. Bembry has led the Hawks to a 24-7 record in the 2015-16 season, locking up...

Saint Louis coach Jim Crews apologized for not having the right words to describe one of the best teams in the nation. ''You know how boring I am,'' he said. His Billikens more than make up for it on the court, using a smothering defense that always has a hand in the face and eyes on the ball. And now, a spot in the record book. Rob Loe scored 17 points and Jordair Jett had 10...
