Some folks, including the team's chairman, have suggested the Flyers need to change their style this season and tighten up their defense. After the third day of training camp Tuesday in Voorhees, coach Peter Laviolette conceded that the Flyers can give goalie Ilya Bryzgalov more support this year, but made it clear he does not plan to change the team's modus operandi: attack, attack, attack. And attack some more. Laviolette likes to talk about playing with "jam," and his 2013 edition will not be different.

Last week's five-player trade that sent sharpshooter Glen Rice to Los Angeles was widely hailed as a victory for the Lakers. The Charlotte Hornets are pretty content, too. "It was a great trade as far as I'm concerned," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said after Eddie Jones and Elden Campbell made a successful debut in their new home by powering the Hornets to their highest-scoring game of the season, a 119-111 victory over Phoenix last night....

"He couldn't answer tough questions in the debate," Hillary Clinton's latest TV ad says of Barack Obama, finishing with an announcer warning, "There are more and more questions about Barack Obama. Maybe instead of attacking, he should answer them. " Yes, folks, it's officially garbage time. For the first 5 1/2 weeks of the Pennsylvania Democratic primary campaign, candidates ran ads with positive messages. Then 12 days ago Clinton tiptoed into attack mode with a radio spot hitting Obama on oil industry contributions and energy policy.

Calling last week's attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon a "tactic of war," U.S. Rep. H. James Saxton (R., N.J.) warned that suspected terrorist Osama bin Laden was only one person amid a deadly network of extremists that needs to be exposed. But the longtime congressman and chairman of the special oversight panel on terrorism said there was "a weakness" in the nation's intelligence gathering. Saxton said sophisticated electronic equipment, such as satellites, had replaced "our human-intelligence gathering" operatives on the ground.

The supporting players from last season's Sue Moran Show at St. Joseph's University became stars in their own right yesterday as the Hawks gained their first victory of the season, a 58-45 nonconference triumph over Boston University. "We've played a lot the last two years, but we were not used to being go-to persons," junior guard Amra Mehmedic said after scoring 17 points at the Fieldhouse. "Last year, we knew: Pass into the lane and Sue will make things happen. " Moran, who graduated last spring, made things happen a lot while becoming St. Joseph's all-time career scoring leader - among men or women.

La Salle got off to a quick start and had a strong finish. But that wasn't enough to overcome Richmond, which finished the Explorers' season with a 60-53 win yesterday in the opening round of the Atlantic Ten Conference women's basketball tournament. The eighth-seeded Explorers (11-17), who had beaten the No. 9 Spiders in Richmond in their only regular-season meeting, had an 8-0 lead after the first two minutes of the game at St. Joseph's Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse. Then Araceli Gil nailed a three-pointer to start an 8-0 run for Richmond (13-16)

The Great Valley football team that lost, 21-8, at Perkiomen Valley Friday night bore little resemblance to the squad that had been outscored, 104-19, in its previous two games. The defense was different. The offense was different. The bottom line - another Pioneer Conference loss - was the same, but Great Valley coach Gary Phillips is concerned more about improvement than the bottom line with his young, inexperienced team. "We keep stressing to the kids that as long as they keep working hard, as long as they have fun, the wins and losses will take care of themselves," Phillips said.

MINNEAPOLIS - In recent days, 76ers coach Doug Collins has been emphasizing to point guard Jrue Holiday the importance of going into attack mode early in games. "We need Jrue to be more aggressive and looking to score the ball early," Collins said Sunday. "He needs to score for our team. I don't want there to be any indecision about what he needs to do for our team. " Holiday took Collins' advice to heart. The third-year point guard took 10 shots in the first half Sunday against Minnesota and finished the game with 20 points.

AUSTIN, Texas - Texas basketball coach Rick Barnes always thought Big East creator Dave Gavitt was one of those rare individuals who could see the writing on the wall before anyone else could even see the wall. "He is certainly one of the great people that I have had the opportunity to meet in my life," said Barnes, who coached at Providence from 1988 to 1994 and regarded Gavitt, who died in September, as such a strong mentor he never made a major decision in his career without checking with Gavitt.

ONLY TWO GAMES into the season and coach Doug Collins was forced to tinker with his starting lineup for Game 3 as shooting guard Jason Richardson was out after spraining his left ankle against the New York Knicks on Sunday. Dorell Wright took Richardson's spot Monday against the Knicks at the Wells Fargo Center. Collins also decided to start Kwame Brown at center, replacing Lavoy Allen. The move wasn't so much to slight Allen as it was to have a spark coming off the bench. Collins said before the season he wanted to play Spencer Hawes with Allen or another big body.

MESQUITE, Texas - On first meeting, Case Keenum appears to be a pleasant, congenial guy. He loves Kimberly, his wife of less than six months. He seems excited to have met Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still at an awards show in Orlando, calling him "a very nice guy, great player. " But get him on a football field, and No. 7 of the Houston Cougars is ruthless, carving up defenses with his execution, his quick release, and his pinpoint accuracy in a high-tempo offense that leaves opposing defenses gasping in the fourth quarter while trying to muster enough energy for the next play.

Leaning against the scorer's table inside the Palestra after a recent free scrimmage for fans, the 76ers' Jrue Holiday is fielding questions in the even-keeled demeanor he channels so naturally. The 21-year-old point guard is explaining the balance he must achieve for the Sixers to be successful. He plays the thinking man's position on the floor, and the chin- rubbing, furrowed brow, and gaze upward toward the venerable old building's ceiling indicate as much. "Every team that Jason Kidd has been to, I feel like they've been pretty good," Holiday says.

MANCHESTER, N.H. - An assertive Mitt Romney has emerged in the GOP presidential race. For months, the former Massachusetts governor has shown little willingness to assail his Republican competitors, staying above the fray and focusing all his criticism on President Obama. But in one night, Romney became the most prominent aggressor in a growing effort by the GOP field to derail front-runner Rick Perry. And in doing so, Romney may have started to ease concern within the GOP establishment over the strength of his candidacy.

The men's U.S. national soccer team only had two practices under new coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who vows to have his team play an attacking style that mirrored his play as a striker for the German national team. After a sluggish first half, the United States got in attack mode during Wednesday's 1-1 tie with Mexico in an international friendly at Lincoln Financial Field. The United States tied the score when Robbie Rogers tapped in a cross from Brek Shea in the 73d minute. "We saw, especially in the second half, a very exciting game, and it was an amazing learning process the players went through in just 90 minutes," Klinsmann said.

When Duke senior guard Karima Christmas was preparing to face DePaul's Keisha Hampton this week, she saw much of herself in the Blue Demons' junior star and leading scorer. "I think we're similar players. We match up well. She's a great player. She can shoot, she can go low inside, and she plays multiple positions," Christmas said of Hampton. "I definitely wanted to go at her, be aggressive and just try to go into the lane and try to get her into foul trouble. " Getting Hampton into foul trouble was exactly what Christmas and the Blue Devils did in their 70-63, Sweet 16 win at Temple's Liacouras Center last night.
