The agate type will suggest that Villanova, as expected, pretty much had its way last night at the Ski Lodge against Rider. Don't believe it. Yes, the Wildcats won, 86-73, to improve to 9-2. But they trailed by 13 after 9 1/2 minutes. Their first three possessions resulted in two turnovers and an airball. They didn't get their first basket inside of 15 feet until midway through the first half, despite a decided size advantage. And that came from the fourth sub in a nine-man rotation (Simon Ogunlesi)

At different points of the season, today's Northeast Conference championship men's basketball game between fourth-seeded Rider and third-seeded Monmouth seemed more than slightly improbable. With three games gone in the conference schedule, Rider - the preseason pick by the conference coaches to win the title - was 0-3 and 5-7 overall, and it appeared headed nowhere after losses to Monmouth, Mount St. Mary's and Marist by a combined 67 points. With 21 seconds left in Monday's tournament semifinal game at Marist, Monmouth appeared through for the season - it trailed by five points.

The bench came through, the freshman star came up big, and Rider came away with its second straight trip to the NCAA men's basketball tournament. The top-seeded Broncs defeated second-seeded Monmouth, 62-56, in the Northeast Conference championship game yesterday at their own Alumni Gymnasium. The victory gave them an automatic bid to the NCAA's field of 64. "It almost seemed like a very typical Rider game, in the sense that there were a lot of challenges thrown out in front of us and a couple different people stepped up and we overcame those challenges in a very hard-fought battle," said coach Kevin Bannon, whose team won its second NEC title in as many years in the league.

Rider coach Kevin Bannon is looking forward to the Northeast Conference tournament, but for a moment Bannon couldn't resist looking back to late December. At that time, Rider had a 1-4 record after losing to Air Force in the consolation game of the Music City Invitational at Vanderbilt. "I remember we were in the hotel lobby," Bannon said. "We were really down in the dumps. We just brought the guys together and said, 'Look, we're getting ready to start league play. We haven't played a home game yet. It's a long year, and if we hang in there and stay together, we can still do some special things.

There's a big difference between a good college basketball team and a good college basketball program. A good team wins a championship one season. A good program has teams that win or challenge for championships every season. Rider College could well have crossed the line with this season's accomplishments. The Broncs had a good team last season, as senior guard Darrick Suber led Rider into the NCAA tournament. Suber was a last-minute recruit in 1989 by Kevin Bannon, who was just beginning his first year as head coach.

It was obvious from the moment he stepped onto the court that Tim Thomas was eager to get involved. Thomas, Villanova's prized freshman recruit, hadn't played in a game since Dec. 14 because of a calf injury suffered in a victory over Penn four days earlier. And when he got the call yesterday to enter the Wildcats' game with Rider at duPont Pavilion, the 6-foot-9 forward was immediately whistled for traveling as he tried to score on a post-up move inside. On the Wildcats' next possession, Thomas was charged with a foul while setting a pick to free teammate Alvin Williams for a shot.

The Broncs of Rider don't want to take today's NCAA Eastern Regional first- rounder against Connecticut in big gulps. TV timeout to TV timeout. That's how Rider coach Kevin Bannon wants his players, who are 18 1/2-point underdogs against UConn, to look at the 12:30 p.m. game. "Every time, we'll come back together and talk about where we are," Bannon said. And if they make it to the last timeout with their limbs still intact, Bannon said, then they would start to talk about winning.

Rider basketball coach Kevin Bannon is happy with his team's improved play, but not to the point of being happy about playing at Villanova tomorrow night. When Bannon scheduled the game, he envisioned forward Charles Smith and center Kevin McPeek in the lineup. But Smith, a Northeast Conference player of the year candidate, was dismissed from the team in early November for failing to abide by the rules. McPeek, the Broncs' best returning player, suffered a knee injury two days before the start of the season and must redshirt his junior year.

John Bartram senior Novar Gadson made an oral commitment to play basketball at Rider University on Sunday. Gadson, a 6-foot-6, 210-pound swingman, chose the Broncs over Central Connecticut State and Morehead State. "They showed a lot of loyalty," he said of accepting Rider's full-scholarship offer. "And I see myself playing for that program. " The Broncs never turned their back on Gadson, who has struggled academically at Bartram in the past. The 18-year-old made his decision after attending Rider's 81-67 win over visiting Loyola (Md.)

Never count out a Finacchio. Brothers Dan and Matt Finacchio, North Penn graduates who are now on the Rider wrestling team, both have overcome injuries this season that have kept them out of the Broncs' lineup for extended periods. Dan, a 126-pound junior who won a PIAA state Class AAA championship for North Penn in 1987, was the first of the Finacchios to get hurt. In November, he missed the U.S.A. Mat Town Tournament in Lock Haven, Pa., and the Stroudsburg Invitational with elbow and back injuries.

Rider came out on fire and Penn did not. That was the difference Tuesday night in the visitors' 73-57 win at the Palestra in a game that was never competitive after the Broncs jumped out to a 40-26 lead by the break. "I didn't think we played with the right sense of urgency," Penn coach Jerome Allen said. "I didn't think we played with the right sense of selflessness. " Rider, coming off an opening 64-58 loss at Princeton, had fire in its belly and its shooting touch. The Broncs shot 15 for 25 in the first half, including 7 of 10 from beyond the arc. Penn never got closer than 12 points in the second half.

It's the most wonderful time of the year for Villanova. Christmas is coming, the Wildcats are undefeated and ranked eighth in the country, and they have a big-time nationally televised showdown with No. 2 Syracuse coming up next weekend. Or as Jay Wright would suggest, it could all be a recipe for disaster. That's why the 'Nova coach was so happy to see his players staying focused on Rider on Saturday and taking care of business to the tune of an 88-67 victory before a festive sellout crowd at the Pavilion.

ELVIS DUMERVIL is putting his seven seasons in Denver and one bizarre fax fiasco behind him after agreeing to a 5-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. So, after a second stinging loss to the Ravens this offseason, the Broncos find themselves in need of a new pass-rushing partner for Von Miller . Broncos football operations chief John Elway issued a statement Sunday saying the Broncos "worked diligently over the last week" to re-sign Dumervil but "are now moving forward without him. " Free agents John Abraham , 34, and Dwight Freeney , 33, visited the Broncos last week and it's expected one of them will sign on soon to replace Dumervil, 29. Dumervil collected 63 1/2 sacks in seven seasons in Denver.

DENVER - Denver's defense was so dominant in beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that the Broncos even spared tackle Mitch Unrein to help unclog their sputtering offense. When he wasn't catching Peyton Manning's first touchdown pass, Unrein helped build a wall of defenders that slowed down Doug Martin, flustered Josh Freeman and derailed the Bucs in Denver's 31-23 win Sunday. It was the seventh straight win for the Broncos (9-3), who clinched the AFC West title. The Buccaneers (6-6)

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. - La Salle's reward for defeating Villanova earlier this week for the first time in 10 years was to be driven even harder in practice by coach John Giannini. "Coach G said that great teams, after a big win, they come back and get another big win instead of losing the next game," guard Tyreek Duren said after the Explorers took their coach's words to heart and rode a red-hot opening nine minutes to a 63-52 victory over Rider on Thursday night at Alumni Gymnasium.

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. - How a team reacts to winning is often more a measure of its possibilities than how it plays after a loss. La Salle finally beat Villanova Sunday after losing 10 straight to the Wildcats. Mediocre teams spend too much time celebrating a big win. Good teams use that feeling and play even better. La Salle could not have much better in the first 12 minutes Thursday night at Rider. The Explorers scored 30 points on 20 possessions, opened up an 18-point lead and held it to the finish line, winning wire-to-wire, 63-52.

THE LOCKERS of the running backs who might take Willis McGahee's spot in the Broncos lineup are conveniently lined up, four in a row. Lance Ball. Knowshon Moreno. Jeremiah Johnson. Ronnie Hillman. Barring an unlikely free-agent signing, some combination of those four will be asked to fill in for the foreseeable future for Denver's leading rusher, McGahee, who tore a ligament in his right knee and will be out for what's expected to be a 6-to-8-week stint. Coach John Fox said McGahee's injury, suffered in the second quarter of Denver's 30-23 victory over San Diego on Sunday, will not require surgery and that the Broncos had no immediate plans to put the 10th-year veteran on injured reserve.
