IT'S NO secret that junior quarterback John Robertson is the key to Villanova's success. His coaches and teammates know it, and they'll tell you so. The rest of the Colonial Athletic Association knows it, which is why Robertson was voted the conference's preseason offensive player of the year. And even some Wildcats fans who hold basketball Saturdays as more sacrosanct than football Saturdays probably know it, too. But a great quarterback needs a great offensive line to be at his best.

BALTIMORE - Pressure? Yo, when you're the quarterback for Villanova, which has always been known for moving the football, hefty expectations are pretty much part of the deal. To the surprise of nobody, fourth-year Wildcat junior John Robertson was named the Colonial Athletic Association's Preseason Offensive Player of the Year at the annual CAA media day at M&T Bank Stadium. But as Villanova found out a year ago, projections mean absolutely zilch once you start playing. The Wildcats, the pick to win the league, started fifth in the national polls last season.

Although it has never hit the local sports radar the way it did this spring with its first NCAA tournament run, the Drexel men's lacrosse program has been playing in West Philadelphia for 72 seasons. This season, however, which ended Sunday in the tournament quarterfinals, when heavily favored Denver ran off eight unanswered goals on the way to a 15-6 victory, was replete with firsts for the Dragons. Drexel (13-5) matched its season high in victories and won the Colonial Athletic Association tournament for the first time.

Nick Saputo isn't known for his scoring, but the Drexel junior is adept at faceoffs. In the biggest game of his college career, he excelled at both. Saputo entered Sunday's game with three goals, but he added three in the first half and was a faceoff force in leading Drexel to a 16-11 win over fourth-seeded Penn in a first-round NCAA men's lacrosse tournament game at Franklin Field. This was the first NCAA tournament game for the Dragons (13-4), the Colonial Athletic Association tourney champions, who will face fifth-seeded Denver in Sunday's quarterfinal at 2:30 p.m. at the University of Delaware.
