Keith Donaldson scored just five points in yesterday's first-round Public League playoff game between the Franklin Learning Center and visiting Olney. But one of them came with two seconds to play as the Bobcats nipped Olney, 74-73, at the Cunningham Community Center. The victory sent the Bobcats into tomorrow's quarterfinal game against Parkway, which defeated Overbrook yesterday, 75-61. Donaldson scored the game-winning point after he was intentionally fouled by guard Bill Keene on a drive to the basket.

Virginia couldn't hit from the outside and couldn't play with Ohio University inside. "We were beaten in every facet of the game . . . we were manhandled in the paint," Virginia coach Jeff Jones said last night after the 14th-ranked Cavaliers lost to the visiting Bobcats, 94-83, in the second round of the Preseason NIT. Gary Trent led Ohio with 20 points and 13 rebounds. "We proved our team can come through strong," Trent said. The Bobcats (2-0) were on the verge of a rout, leading, 76-56, with 6:48 left, when Virginia (1-1)

Not even the comfort of the Carrier Classic could save No. 12 Syracuse. In the first 22 years of its own tournament, Syracuse had never lost a first-round game - until last night. The Orangemen ran into Ohio University, and the Bobcats followed through on coach Larry Hunter's hunch and won a defensive struggle, 61-55. "They've been playing awfully well," Hunter said. "Maybe they were ripe for the picking. We're coming off a five-win season. I don't think they probably knew a whole lot about us, and they expect to win the first game of their tournament.

The fourth quarter usually lasts longer than any other quarter. With teams' foul totals building and coaches playing chess with each other in an attempt to win, the quarter can drag on and on. Last Tuesday at Franklin Learning Center's gym at the Cunningham Community Center in North Philadelphia, the fourth quarter seemed to last an eternity - an eternity of fouls, timeouts, controversy over timeouts and, between the delays, scintillating basketball....

The NBA's most surprising team so far this season is, without a doubt, Charlotte. The Bobcats have won five of their last six games to improve to 6-4 - and are one win away from matching last year's win total, when they finished 7-59 (which is the worst winning percentage, .106, in NBA history). How are they doing it? With defense. Charlotte is allowing 98.8 points per game, but ranks in the top 10 in the league in steals (86) and blocked shots (76). The Bobcats are forcing 14.6 turnovers per game.

It was one of the best games of the year for Frankford, coming in a season already filled with victories. In defeating Franklin Learning Center, 82-45, Tuesday afternoon in a Public League semifinal, the Pioneers showed they are ready for whatever they have to face in the season's final game. Sometimes, no matter how good a team is, it can look bad - or good - at the wrong time. But Frankford, according to coach Vince Miller, has just the right timing. "The last three games . . . have been the some of the best basketball we played this year," he said.

It had been a long time since the Frankford High boys' basketball team was involved in a close encounter. In fact, you had to go back to last season's Public League title game, in which the Pioneers recorded a heart-thumping, 71-64 quadruple-overtime victory over West Philadelphia, to find a contest where the Frankford players needed to break a sweat after intermission. In rolling to a 4-0 record against nonleague opposition this year, Frankford had averaged 86 points per game and won by an average margin of more than 36 points.

Chris Paul had 15 points and 15 assists, and visiting New Orleans won for the seventh time in eight games, 105-89 over trade-depleted Charlotte last night. David West and Peja Stojakovic each scored 17 points for New Orleans (12-6), which led by as many as 23 points in the second quarter and held a comfortable lead the rest of the way. Tyson Chandler had 13 points and 11 rebounds before all the starters left the game for the final period. Rookie D.J. Augustin scored a career-high 28 points to lead Charlotte, which took the floor with a depleted lineup shortly after a multiplayer trade that sent leading scorer Jason Richardson to Phoenix.

The Charlotte Bobcats struggle against most teams, and are making a habit of playing their best against the NBA's elite. Sean May scored 17 points, fellow reserve Matt Carroll added 16 and the host Bobcats snapped Detroit's eight-game winning streak with a 97-89 victory last night. The Bobcats' backups outscored the Pistons' reserves, 46-14, to help Charlotte end a two-game losing streak and continue their unlikely trend of beating the league's best teams. Three of the Bobcats' five wins have come against San Antonio, Cleveland and Detroit, which suffered its first loss since Nov. 15. "One of the things is, we get up for it. And then a lot of it also has to do with the mentality of the team coming to play us," Charlotte guard Brevin Knight said.

The Charlotte Bobcats are threating to steal the designation of "worst ever" held for nearly 40 years by the 76ers of 1972-73. John Wall had 16 points and 14 assists, Nene scored 18 points and Jan Vesely had 16 points on 8-for-8 shooting and the host Washington Wizards handed the Bobcats their 21st straight loss, 101-73 on Monday night. If Charlotte (7-57) loses its final two games, the Bobcats will finish with the worst winning percentage in NBA history at .106. The 76ers were 9-73 in 1973, or .109.

AT 5-4 AND 120 pounds, some may say Joe Pagan is too small to dream big. Just don't tell that to the sophomore righthander from Franklin Learning Center. He has his head in the stars. Yesterday, Pagan started on the mound and led the visiting Bobcats to an 11-4 win over Walter B. Saul High. Pagan struck out 10, scattered 12 hits and allowed just two earned runs in seven innings. However, after the victorious Bobcats (9-4) broke their postgame huddle, Pagan had more to say about his future studying the cosmos than his pitching performance.

CHARLOTTE - The 76ers lost to the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday night. So what else is new? The 111-105 decision marked the Sixers' fourth consecutive defeat and 32d loss in 34 games. But the Sixers (17-63) played much better than expected, especially coming off consecutive double-digit losses to the Memphis Grizzlies (Friday) and the Toronto Raptors (Wednesday) on this three-game road trip. So this six-point setback could be seen as a moral victory for the tanking franchise.

Not surprisingly, the 76ers lost again Wednesday night. This time, it was at the hands of the Charlotte Bobcats. And it wasn't even close. Dominating from start to finish, the Bobcats prevailed, 123-93, at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers (16-59) have lost two straight and 28 of 29 games. They are riding their 12th losing streak of the season. There was little that the Sixers did right, and there was next to nothing that they stopped the Bobcats (37-38) from doing. "There was spirit that was knocked out of us, early," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

SURGEONS HAVE some of the world's steadiest hands. So, there's some logic behind a New York man's decision to enlist his medical-student son in helping him skin a bobcat, an animal that's rare in the wild. What's not logical is why the father dumped the animal's carcass into a Brewerytown lot. Wildlife Conservation Officer Jerry Czech cited the man, 55, with unlawful taking/possession of wildlife after he turned himself in yesterday to the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

IN CASE you were wondering, it's not OK to dump wild-animal corpses onto vacant lots. One New Yorker apparently learned that lesson the hard way yesterday after he threw the mutilated carcass of a bobcat he had killed onto a lot at 31st and Jefferson streets in Brewerytown. Sarah Eremus, a spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania SPCA, said the man called the organization early yesterday after seeing news reports about the remains, which were discovered by a dog-walker Sunday afternoon.

CHARLOTTE - Before their game even started last night against the Charlotte Bobcats, the 76ers were in a hole, as rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams was back in Philly nursing a sore knee. Then, as has been the norm lately, they got themselves in a bigger hole in the first quarter. Charlotte made 14 of its 25 first-quarter shots and scored 36 points. In the past three games, teams are shooting 63.1 percent (41-for-65) in the first quarter against the Sixers and averaging a little less than 37 points.

Though he originally planned to make the trip, 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams did not travel with the team for Friday's game against the Bobcats in Charlotte, N.C., because of right-knee soreness. Carter-Williams did not practice Thursday but said afterward that he planned to test the knee during Friday's shootaround in Charlotte. Those plans were scrapped, which isn't surprising, because he was noticeably limping and wearing a sleeve on his knee. The Sixers said Carter-Williams would remain in Philadelphia for further evaluation and treatment.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - New 76ers coach Brett Brown thought his team played out of character in Monday's lopsided preseason loss to the Brooklyn Nets. If so, the Sixers were also out of character Thursday morning at Time Warner Cable Arena. The Bobcats prevailed, 110-84, in a game that was basically decided after one quarter. The Sixers (2-3) have lost their last two preseason games by a combined 56 points. This time, they rested veterans Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young. And they were sorely missed.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - New 76ers coach Brett Brown will tell you that folks usually think of blueberries and lobsters they when bring up the state of Maine. "Not NBA coaches," said Brown, who is from South Portland. "It's highly unusual, extremely consequential that he and I are coaching against each other in the NBA. I'm proud of him. " Brown spoke of Steve Clifford, whose Charlotte Bobcats faced the Sixers Thursday morning at the Time Warner Cable Arena. Like Brown, the Island Falls, Maine, native is a rookie head coach.
