Canisius regained its long-range shooting touch just in time. A flurry of treys helped the Golden Griffins put together a late 10-5 run and Central High's Craig Wise tipped in the game-winner as visiting Canisius edged Bradley, 55-53, in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament. "We're very lucky to be in the winner's circle because of a couple of bad streaks," Canisius coach John Beilein said. "We're not a great three-point shooting team, but we made it. " The Golden Griffins were only 1-for-10 in three-pointers during the first half, a weakness that helped create an 11-point deficit.

So nerve-racking second halves are apparently the way it's going to be for La Salle this season, the coach's health notwithstanding. With coach Speedy Morris back at his screeching, jacket-shedding best last night, the Explorers saw another double-digit second-half lead melt down, much as they had two nights earlier against Notre Dame. But this time La Salle hung on with some good work by Randy Woods and Milko Lieverst, and downed Canisius, 85-78, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game at the nearly empty Memorial Auditorium in this Bills-crazy city.

Jeff Taggart, a junior basketball player for Canisius, died last night after collapsing midway through the first half of a game against Niagara in Buffalo. Taggart, 20, a 6-foot-3, 194-pound swingman, was sitting on the bench when he went into convulsions with 10 minutes remaining in the first half. He had started the game and played eight minutes without scoring. The game, which was won by Niagara, 70-61, was stopped for 10 minutes as medics at Memorial Auditorium and physicians from both teams tried unsuccessfully to revive Taggart in the arena's infirmary.

Marty Marbach, the top assistant to Villanova basketball coach Rollie Massimino for the last two seasons, will be introduced today as the new head coach at Canisius. While stopping short of saying he had officially been appointed when contacted last night, Marbach conceded that unless "something drastic happened in my final meeting" with the Rev. James M. Demske, Canisius College president, he would get the job. "It's not official until the final meeting," Marbach said.

A player from Southern High led La Salle to an 85-73 victory over Canisius last night in the consolation game of the Jostens Philadelphia Classic at the Palestra. And no, it wasn't Lionel Simmons. This time, the star was Bob Johnson, La Salle's spindly, 6-foot-4 sophomore forward. Johnson, who was a teammate and good friend of Simmons' in high school, scored 20 points - a career high - and hauled down 10 rebounds. In Johnson's case, it was easy to call this game his best ever.

Marty Marbach was Rollie Massimino's assistant at Villanova for the past eight seasons. And now that Marbach is the head basketball coach at Canisius, his life obviously has undergone some changes. "Well, I'm on TV less, which my mom doesn't like," he said. "And I'm not eating as much pasta. With Rollie, it was mostly Italian cuisine. Now, I'm getting by on a lot of chicken wings. " Of course, that has been the least of the adjustments Marbach has had to make as he brings his 0-4 club into the Palestra tonight for the opener of the third annual Jostens Philadelphia Classic against 2-2 Wake Forest (PRISM, 7 o'clock)

Brian Small rushed for two touchdowns and the defense intercepted three passes as well-balanced La Salle took a 21-14 win over Canisius in its Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference opener yesterday at McCarthy Stadium. La Salle raised its overall record to 2-0, while Canisius fell to 0-2 and 0-1 in the MAAC. The Explorers won the game in the third quarter when Paris McLean intercepted a Frank Fusco pass and returned it to the Canisius 25-yard line. Five plays later, senior quarterback John Travers connected with freshman wide receiver Ben Wiedemer on a 4-yard pass for a 20-14 lead.

With Delaware enjoying its finest men's basketball season ever - a 27-4 record, the North Atlantic Conference championship, a trip to the NCAA Tournament for the first time - it's inevitable that coach Steve Steinwedel's name will surface for coaching vacancies at other schools. Yesterday, according to a source, Steinwedel interviewed for the Canisius coaching job. Marty Marbach, a former Villanova assistant, was fired last month after compiling a 49-94 record in five seasons. "I have no comment," Steinwedel said last night.

COLLEGE PARK, MD. - Making its eighth consecutive NCAA tournament appearance, the No. 13 Penn women's lacrosse team (14-4) advanced to the second round with a 9-4 victory over Canisius (12-8) here on Friday night. The matchup pegged Penn's stingy No. 8-ranked defense against Canisius' No. 13-ranked scoring offense. But the Quakers' defense proved to be the stronger force, causing the Golden Griffins to turn the ball over 14 times and limiting one of the school's all-time leading point scorers, Maria Kotas, to just two goals.

Shortly after the members of the Penn women's lacrosse team walked off the field following a sound beating (12-6) by Virginia in the first round of last year's NCAA tournament, coach Karin Corbett delivered the same message to her despondent players that she had given them all season. "We were sloppy all season long, and it finally caught up to us against a very good ACC team," Corbett said. "We were young last season, and every time we talked about cleaning up our game, the girls were kind of like, 'Yeah, whatever.' "Looking back," the Quakers coach continued, "that might have been the best thing that could have happened to us. All season long I didn't have to spend too much time on that.

Temple guard Khalif Wyatt was rewarded Monday for exceptional play when he was named NBC Sports national player of the week. Wyatt, a graduate of Norristown High, also was named player of the week by the Atlantic Ten Conference and the Big Five. The 6-foot-4 senior averaged 23.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in last week's games against Alcorn State, Canisius, and third-ranked Syracuse. Wyatt's highlight was his career-high 33 points in Saturday's 83-79 victory over the Orange at New York's Madison Square Garden.

TEMPLE COACH Fran Dunphy was concerned with his team's play when it was winning eight of nine. Then, the Owls played without any offensive rhythm again and were upset at home last Wednesday against Canisius. This did not appear to be good preparation for Saturday's game against No. 3 Syracuse at Madison Square Garden. It looked even worse when the Owls trailed by 10 points midway thought the first half. Then, almost without warning, Temple started to play like Dunphy's good teams always play - smart, sharp, with purpose.

NEW YORK - Before winning a conference title, notching a 20-win season, and advancing to the NCAA tournament, the first annual task for Temple is beating a top 10 opponent. Once again, the Owls accomplished that feat. Temple upset third-ranked Syracuse, 83-79, Saturday in the Gotham Classic at Madison Square Garden. It is the fifth consecutive season the Owls (9-2) have knocked off a top 10 opponent. And this upset came three days after an embarrassing home loss to Canisius.

MAYBE WE should have seen something like this coming. Temple has been winning a bunch of games most folks probably expected them to. Yet the Owls haven't always played the kind of basketball coach Fran Dunphy wants, even if it's still early. Wednesday night at the Liacouras Center, it finally cost them. Canisius, off to its best start since 1966-67 (which was also the last time it played Temple) for first-year coach Jim Baron, came from 10 down early in the second half as double-digit underdogs to take down the Owls, 72-62, in the Chevrolet Gotham Classic.

Something about playing unheralded teams usually brings out Temple's unflattering side. Maybe it's hard to get up for teams the Owls are expected to beat. Whatever the cause, Temple has a knack for playing to the level of its competition. It cost the Owls on Wednesday night. Canisius, of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, upset Temple, 72-62, in a Gotham Classic game at the Liacouras Center. The Golden Griffins were 111/2-point underdogs. The loss dropped the Owls to 8-2 and snapped their 11-game home winning streak.

Buffalo police say Lazare Adingono, an assistant coach at Canisius College, has been arrested on charges he beat his 4-year-old son with a belt. Police spokesman Michael DeGeorge says Adingono was arrested Feb. 10 on a felony charge of second-degree assault and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child. The Erie County district attorney's office is investigating. DeGeorge said yesterday that Adingono was at his home in Buffalo on Jan. 15 when he used a belt to hit his son numerous times, causing pain and swelling on the boy's back, neck and arm. Adingono, 31, coached the Cameroon national basketball team in the Olympic qualifying tournament last year.
