NEW YORK - Brooklyn used to be just a place, one of New York's five boroughs. But in the last few years it has also become a meme, shorthand for conveying all that it means to be young, urban, and hip in today's America. It is no accident that the hit TV show Girls , the Sex and the City of the hipster generation, is set in the Greenpoint section. Or that Brooklyn-themed caps and T-shirts are edging out the Yankees merch on the shelves of sporting goods stores far from the shores of Coney Island.

For the first time in decades, Barbra Streisand is singing dangerously. Often. Not because her voice has suddenly regained what it has gradually lost over the years. When Streisand, 74, opened the East Coast leg of her tour Thursday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, her voice had a thinning tone, raspy edges, and an occasional frog in the throat. Sorry, the world has not yet invented cosmetic surgery for vocal cords. The difference - which will doubtless be evident Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center - is that she isn't wasting her energy avoiding or masking what her voice can no longer do. Thus, she's free to explore avenues of expression that could perhaps have come only from a woman of her age and experience.

The Atlantic 10 men's basketball tournament officially will move from Atlantic City to Brooklyn, N.Y., starting in 2013. Atlantic 10 commissioner Bernadette McGlade thinks that moving the tournament to Brooklyn will "really catapult this championship to the next level. " The conference and the Barclays Center formally announced the 5-year deal yesterday. The Barclays Center is the future home of the NBA's Nets. The Atlantic 10 concludes its 6-year run in March at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, where attendance hasn't always matched the national success of the conference's members.

A Temple source confirmed an ESPN.com report Monday that the Atlantic Ten Conference men's basketball tournament will relocate to New York. The tournament will be played from 2013 to 2018 at Brooklyn's new Barclays Center, according to the source, who did not want to be identified because an announcement has not been made. The A-10 has one year remaining on its contract to play the tourney at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall. The Barclays Center, which is scheduled to open in 2012, will be the home arena of the New Jersey Nets when they move to Brooklyn for the 2012-13 season.

THE ATLANTIC 10 women's basketball tournament is changing things up in an effort to make a little history at the new arena in Brooklyn. The first three rounds of the tourney will take place at Saint Joseph's Hagan Arena March 8-11, but the championship game will be held March 16 at the Barclays Center following the semifinals of the men's tournament. One ticket will suffice for the tripleheader, which starts with a men's semifinal game at 1:30 p.m. The women's championship is slated for 7 p.m. and tickets exclusively for that contest also will be available.

NEW YORK - University of Arizona forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was considered to be among the top defensive players in the NBA draft.  That attribute earned him a place in the first round and his first NBA trade. The 6-foot-7, 220-pounder became the second Chester High player ever selected in the first round when the Portland Trail Blazers took him with the 23d overall pick Thursday night at the Barclays Center.  The other Chester High first-round pick was Jameer Nelson, who was drafted in 2004 by Denver and then traded to Orlando.  Wearing red checkered pants, a black suit jacket, and a bow tie, Jefferson, who led Arizona with 43 dunks, was ecstatic at landing in the first round.

It's the easiest thing, when you pay close attention to sports, to be cynical about them, and then Fran Dunphy delivers a genuine moment of grace on Friday and makes it so hard. The Temple Owls had just lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament, 72-70, to Iowa in overtime at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The winning basket, the play that ended Temple's season, had come on a tip-in at the buzzer. It was the kind of loss that leaves a coach feeling as if a pile of frozen gravel has settled at the pit of his stomach.

NEW YORK - OK, time for the next question. And really, wasn't it about time? The last time Villanova made it this far, in 2009, it went to a Final Four. But there had been way too many second-round missteps since then, as was well documented. And one more might have been, well, too much. The last thing you want to become is a national punch line. Especially when you've averaged over 30 wins the last three seasons with only regular-season titles to show for that. As if those didn't matter.

NEW YORK - Fran Dunphy has been coaching at the college level for 27 seasons. Fran McCaffery, another Philly guy, has been doing it for 19. They've gone against each other only twice. Even though Dunphy, when asked about that on Thursday, said, "It's amazing our paths haven't crossed before. " Well, at least not for a while. McCaffery, whose Iowa team will get Dunph's 10th-seeded Owls in Friday's first round of the NCAA South Regional at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, remembers things differently.

Villanova coach Jay Wright figured his team had lost its chance at a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament by losing the Big East tournament championship game to Seton Hall, and said after the game, "We'll take what we can get. " As expected, the Wildcats got a No. 2 seed on Sunday. What wasn't expected was that the path to the Final Four, if the Cats can take care of business the next two weekends, will run through Louisville, home of the NCAA South Regional semifinals and finals. First things first, though.

NEW YORK - As the last seconds ticked off Sunday at the Barclays Center, St. Joseph's forward Isaiah Miles sat right down on the court, just outside the three-point line. If conference tournaments don't mean much, Miles didn't get the memo. "Everything just hit me at once," Miles said later. "I had to take a seat. " After Miles joined the mob scene at center court celebrating an Atlantic Ten title, the senior went over to do a postgame interview with CBS. He didn't see his mother coming.

NEW YORK - Less than two weeks ago, Saint Joseph's was tied for first place in the Atlantic 10. Then the Hawks, who were picked to finish seventh, lost their last two regular-season games to drop down to the fourth seed in the conference tournament. Then they found themselves trailing by 14 against George Washington at halftime in Friday afternoon's A-10 quarterfinals at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The last thing any team wants to do is leave its fate to the Selection Committee, even if bracketologists everywhere were still projecting that the worst that could happen is they would end up settling for one of the play-in spots in Dayton, Ohio.

NEW YORK - La Salle has been playing in the Atlantic Ten since 1995-96. During that time the Explorers have won more than one game in the conference tournament exactly once. That was in 2002, the first of coach Billy Hahn's three seasons, when they beat Fordham and Temple at the Spectrum before getting sent home by Richmond the semifinals. Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, in the last of the four second-round matchups, the Explorers had an opportunity to do it again, three years after they'd won three NCAA games in five days.

NEW YORK - La Salle played 13 road games this season. The Explorers won one. And that was in late November, against Division III Rowan, where coach John Giannini had won a national championship 20 years earlier. But they'd won two of their last three going into the 40th Atlantic Ten tournament. Wednesday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the last-place Explorers drew 11th-seeded Duquesne in the second half of the opening-round doubleheader. They'd lost to the Dukes in Western Pennsylvania in late January, by 27. The Explorers (9-21)

SO EXACTLY how did La Salle get from 24-10 and a Sweet 16 game against Wichita State at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on March 28, 2013 to 8-21, last place in the Atlantic 10 and an opening round A-10 Tournament game Wednesday night against Duquesne at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. "I just think I mis-evaluated," said La Salle coach John Giannini. "I knew we would be better next year. I knew that there was a chance that we would struggle, but I never dreamed it would be the season that we're having.
