It appears that if the NCAA isn't the matchmaker, Cincinnati and Ohio State will never get together in basketball. When the two old adversaries - who have met just one time since the 1962 national championship game - meet in Thursday night's East Regional semifinal in Boston, it will have to be enough to mollify fans longing for a regular-season meeting. Buckeyes coach Thad Matta concedes there are too many old grudges and roadblocks to the teams' ever agreeing to get together annually.

It's no surprise that there was bad blood between supporters of a murder defendant and those who came to the Criminal Justice Center out of respect for the victim. But nobody thought the tension would lead to real blood being spilled in a Justice Center hallway. The blood on the 5th floor was found after sheriff's deputies and police broke up a screaming fight among more than 15 angry people. Two people were charged with assault. One was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge.

Christopher McClain, 15, was driving a young woman to pick up a family member when he encountered two men who didn't like him, and whom he didn't like. Their dispute, police say, was possibly over a woman. And it was that bad blood police say that may have led one of the men to shoot Christopher, of Logan, in the head as he sat in a parked car on Weymouth Street near Clearfield in Kensington at around 11 a.m. Sunday. Police had said Christopher was shot after refusing an offer to buy "weed" from one of the men. But Homicide Lt. Joseph Maum said yesterday that the shooting wasn't "over drugs as much as it was over personal things.

The chummy rapport between ABC sportscaster Al Michaels and ABC Sports president Dennis Swanson apparently has come to an angry boil. On Monday in a Hollywood labor lawyer's office, Michaels and his boss are scheduled to face off in the first of six unusual contract-arbitration sessions over the next three weeks. Michaels, who will take a time-out to broadcast the June 9 running of the Belmont Stakes in New York, wants to be released from his ABC contract, supposedly to sign with CBS. His attorney has asked for a decision from the three-member arbitration panel by June 15. In February, Swanson suspended Michaels without pay for two weeks for nepotism after the announcer's teenage daughter worked as an ABC runner at a figure-skating event.

THE FRUSTRATION was evident in his somewhat guarded but telling words. Following Monday afternoon's blowout loss to the Washington Wizards, 76ers big man Nerlens Noel talked about the big men not getting the ball, not being rewarded for their energy. He had just scored 11 points, the fifth time in the past eight games he had hit double figures. He seems to be getting more comfortable on offense, relying a lot now on his left hand for floaters after a strong dribble or two to the basket.

And, so, tonight the staggering Phillies begin a 12-game, four-city western swing. Perhaps through clenched teeth, you're muttering, Great, at least we get a chance for quick revenge on those bleepin' Giants. Put the bitter feelings on hold. The destinations on this trek are San Diego, Houston, Arizona and Colorado. The Phillies do not visit San Francisco until Aug. 28 to 31, and who knows what the team's mood, most likely dependent on its lots in wild-card life, will be then?

MARY KOHLER still reigns as hero in the hepatitis C battle. Her December vigil outside the Mayor's office publicized the crisis of hep C among firefighters and their struggle for the city to pay attention - but now we can add another name to the list: House Majority Leader John Perzel. The Philadelphia Republican was sponsor of a bill that classifies hepatitis C as a workplace-related disease for firefighters. It extends this coverage to police and prison guards, reckoning all three to be put at risk because of their exposure to blood.

The shade beneath the tree at the South Philadelphia street corner was distinctly drawn by the morning's strong sun, a sharp line delineating light from shadow. The clarity of the weather stood in contrast to the disputed events that brought the mourners here to the Murphy-Ruffenach Funeral Home. Inside the two-story brick building, John McFarland's family was saying goodbye to him, and outside, his friends, some in Eric Clapton T-shirts and black armbands, milled around, looking grim.

The coach in Paul Morina hated this week. The educator in him loved it. The coach hated how his Paulsboro wrestling team was forced to deal with the dreaded "D" word in the days before the opening of the individual state tournament. "Distractions," Morina said Thursday morning of the controversy surrounding the surfacing of a photo of seven Phillipsburg High School wrestlers posing in front of a dark-skinned dummy hanging from a noose and wearing a Paulsboro wrestling T-shirt.

Wednesday's preliminary hearing for Kareem Alleyne, the East Mount Airy man charged with vehicular homicide in the late-night death July 15 of an off-duty police officer who was riding a bike, was postponed to Oct. 2.

James Neal recorded his second NHL hat trick and Sidney Crosby had four assists in his first home game in more than three months as the Pittsburgh Penguins ripped the visiting Winnipeg Jets, 8-4, on Tuesday night. Evgeni Malkin added two goals - including the 200th of his NHL career - and dished out three assists to lift his point total to an NHL-leading 93. Tyler Kennedy also scored twice for Pittsburgh.

Most of the Flyers had a wait-and-see attitude about the NHL's realignment that will take place next season. But club chairman Ed Snider, in a phone conversation from California on Tuesday, said there will be more positives than negatives in the format. On Monday, the NHL's board of governors voted, 26-4, in favor of the new setup; the Flyers were one of the 26, Snider said. The Flyers will be in a still-to-be-named seven-team conference with Pittsburgh, the Islanders, the Rangers, Washington, New Jersey, and Carolina.

Twins getting closer to full strength Good news for languishing-in-last-place-in-the-AL-Central Minnesota: All-star catcher Joe Mauer , rehabbing in Fort Myers, could return to the Twins by the end of the week. Mauer, a career .326 hitter, was batting .235 when he went on the DL in the middle of April with bilateral leg weakness. Now if the Twins could only get designated hitter Jim Thome (quadriceps) back. All right already, Carmona's sorry Cleveland pitcher Fausto Carmona has said he didn't mean to hit Yankees slugger Mark Teixeira with a pitch Friday night, an incident that cleared the benches and stoked the bad blood between the two teams.

The birthplace, museum and residence are owned by the Marian Anderson Historical Society. The award is an invention of the city. When Mia Farrow was here in April to collect the high-profile $50,000 Marian Anderson Award, it beamed no sunshine on the historical society.

A team Muffy could get behind The envelope please, for the All-Preppy/WASPy-Sounding National League team. Pirates first baseman Lyle Overbay almost made the cut with his game Sunday, but as with the AL team named May 31, these selections have nothing to do with players' skill, only their names. The selections also have nothing to do with players' actual race, ethnicity, religion, or familiarity with crew, lacrosse, or squash. 1B: Aubrey Lewis Huff III , Giants 2B: Chase Utley , Phillies 3B: (Tie)
