It isn't often that someone looks forward to playing Penn State in football. But you can count Syracuse coach Dick MacPherson among the minority. At least, in this particular instance. "They're the perfect team for us to be playing this weekend. We need Penn State to get us revved up to win," said MacPherson, whose Orangemen (2-2) host the Nittany Lions (4-1) Saturday in the Carrier Dome (ESPN, 4 p.m.). "It's just what the doctor ordered. " Syracuse, which shelled the Lions, 48-21, at home in 1987, is trying to beat Penn State for the third consecutive year, something nobody has managed to do since Joe Paterno became the head coach at Happy Valley.

You can't blame former St. Joseph's Prep and current Miami Hurricanes quarterback Frank Costa for having some apprehension about going into the Carrier Dome for Saturday's Big East showdown with Syracuse. In 1992, when Costa was a redshirt sophomore and Gino Torretta was quarterbacking the team, the No. 1-ranked Hurricanes visited the No. 8 Orangemen and nearly lost the game - and their hearing. "We barely came out of there with a win," Costa said of the Hurricanes' 16-10 victory.

THIS MIGHT not come as a real surprise, but recent history has shown the 76ers are not very good at giving information on players' injuries - such as those to Andrew Bynum and Nerlens Noel. Now there appears to be a little confusion over the shoulder surgery that has sidelined NBA Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams. Just after MCW received his award in May, the team said that he had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder and that the recovery period would be 2 to 4 months.

Tournament MVP Angel Lewis scored on a layup with one second left in regulation, then added five points in overtime, as Syracuse's women's basketball team defeated St. Joseph's, 74-68, in the championship game of the Carrier Classic in the Carrier Dome. Erin Kenneally scored 18 points and Lewis 16 for Syracuse (2-0). Katie Curry notched 18 points, Audrey Codner 15 points and nine rebounds and Cindy Anderson 14 points for the Hawks (1-1), who trailed by as many as 16 in the first half.

An hour before the scheduled tipoff, St. John's was stuck in a snowbound bus two miles from the Carrier Dome, where No. 23 Syracuse awaited. But a little snow wasn't going to stand in the way of the Big East's hottest team. "We wanted to walk to the game. We were anxious and excited, but coach [Fran Fraschilla] wouldn't let us," said Zendon Hamilton, who had 23 points and 10 rebounds to lead the visiting Red Storm to a 67-65 victory over Syracuse last night. With traffic snarled in a blinding snowstorm that dumped more than a foot of snow on Syracuse, St. John's didn't arrive at the Carrier Dome until 35 minutes before the scheduled start, causing a 35-minute delay.

Derrick Coleman led Syracuse out of a two-game shooting slump, matching his career-high with 24 points and 17 rebounds, as the Orangemen turned back St. John's, 81-72, last night in a Big East game in Syracuse, N.Y. Syracuse (No. 6 AP and UPI) used a 19-9 run to begin the second half and pull away from St. John's (No. 15, No. 16 UPI). Syracuse, which shot 33 percent from the field in its previous two games, used 67 percent shooting in the second half to improve to 11-1, 2-1 in the conference, and stop St. John's eight-game winning streak.

It is a forbidding place to most visitors, the Carrier Dome with its Teflon din, where the largest hostile basketball crowd in the country intimidates with a throbbing wall of Orange sound. For some reason, Villanova remains unaffected. For some reason, the Dome feels as comfortable to the Wildcats as an old pair of slippers. With last night's blistering 79-61 victory over 12th-ranked Syracuse, Villanova has now won four consecutive times at the Carrier Dome. Seniors Arron Bain (13 points, eight rebounds)

Villanova coach Jay Wright used to refer to the annual "old" Big East rivalry with Syracuse as "like a love-hate," especially those trips to the cavernous and loud Carrier Dome. "We love it but the games are so tough," Wright said. "It's a really hard place to play up there, but we love going up there. You love the experience, even when you lose. Everybody up there is so nice to you, they really are. " The eighth-ranked Wildcats (11-0) will receive that same Upstate New York hospitality, and the typically tough opponent, on Saturday when they meet fellow unbeaten and No. 2 Syracuse (11-0)

In this space last week, we thought Syracuse would suffer its first loss of 2013-14 before Wichita State did because of its difficult road schedule. But never in our wildest dreams did we see downtrodden Boston College, a team that had defeated one Division I squad (Virginia Tech) since Nov. 26, going into the Carrier Dome and recording the shocker of the season. Now the schedule really gets tough for Syracuse, which must play its next three at Duke, at Maryland, and at Virginia. "We can't think about" the loss, Orange coach Jim Boeheim said.

Jerami Grant scored eight points in overtime to finish with a career-high 24, and Jim Boeheim's No. 2 Syracuse stayed unbeaten, topping Mike Krzyzewski's No. 17 Duke, 91-89, on Saturday in Syracuse, N.Y., in a matchup of the two winningest coaches in Division I history. C.J. Fair scored a career-best 28 as Syracuse (21-0, 8-0 Atlantic Coast) set a school record for consecutive wins to start a season. Playing in front of a charged-up crowd of 35,446, the largest ever at the Carrier Dome, Syracuse remained one of three undefeated teams in the nation, along with No. 1 Arizona and No. 4 Wichita State.

JAY WRIGHT and the Villanova Wildcats are no strangers to the big stage. They have played and responded well in their fair share of big games, and playing No. 2 Syracuse will be no different, even if it is no longer the Big East matchup it was a year ago. Villanova is No. 8 in the Associated Press poll, thanks to a surprising 11-0 start that included wins over then-No. 2 Kansas and No. 22 Iowa. Tomorrow, the Wildcats will get arguably their biggest test of the season as they travel to the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, N.Y., to battle the 11-0 Orange at 2 p.m. "This is a new test for this group, and that's really what a season is all about," Wright said.

HOLY FAMILY men's basketball coach R.C. Kehoe can't wait. Either, he said, can his team. On Friday, the Division II Tigers will take on Syracuse in an exhibition in the Carrier Dome. "Excited is an understatement," Kehoe said. "I don't know what the crowd will be like, but I'm expecting about 15,000. It's the largest on-campus arena in the country. " The Dome's capacity is listed at 49,250. Holy Family's Campus Center Gymnasium only seats 1,000. So, don't be surprised if Kehoe's team looks as wide-eyed as those Hickory High players did when they showed for the state championship game at Hinkle Fieldhouse.

Miami guard Shane Larkin noticed during warm-ups Saturday that something was off. The up-tempo Hurricanes seemed a step slow and not entirely ready to play. And so it was: No. 2 Miami saw its unbeaten start to Atlantic Coast Conference play, 14-game winning streak, and highest-ever national ranking come to an end with a surprisingly lopsided 80-65 loss to host Wake Forest. Miami (22-4, 13-1) never got closer than 11 in the second half and was outrebounded 36-35 by the Demon Deacons (12-14, 5-9)

WHAT A DIFFERENCE a week can make. So maybe some cynics will even concede that Villanova's Jay Wright might actually have a clue again. Two wins over Top 5 teams in 5 days will do that for a perspective. Ironically, both were over teams that the Wildcats will no longer be playing once this Big East implosion mess finally plays itself out. Last Saturday they left Providence with a three-game losing streak. Now, while still far from a finished product, they've at least already matched their victory total from last season (13-7, 4-3)
