There's a chance Temple's Lavoy Allen and Villanova's Corey Fisher and Corey Stokes will be excluded from Thursday's NBA draft. Just don't tell that the former Big Five standouts. All three remain optimistic despite being left off most mock drafts and receiving little to no pre-draft buzz. "The [Charlotte] Bobcats have a couple of first-round picks," said Stokes, a 6-foot-5, 195-pound guard. "They told my agent that they really like me a lot. . . . The Cavs like me. My agent got on the phone with the Nets [June 15]

Villanova senior guard Corey Stokes will miss his second consecutive game tonight when the 15th-ranked Wildcats (19-6, 7-5 Big East) try to break a two-game losing streak, at Seton Hall (11-14, 5-8). The team's second-leading scorer (14.6 points a game) and best three-point shooter (41.5 percent), Stokes is suffering from turf toe in his left foot. He also missed Saturday's three-point home loss to Pittsburgh, Villanova's first at the Pavilion in 47 games. In Wednesday's last-second loss at Rutgers, he wasn't a factor in the second half.

Temple forward Lavoy Allen and Villanova guards Corey Stokes and Corey Fisher are among 64 seniors who will take part in the Portsmouth (Va.) Invitational Tournament, beginning Wednesday. The 4-day, 12-game tournament is a showcase for college seniors to play in front of representatives from every NBA team. Allen and Stokes were assigned to the same team and will be joined by players such as Malcolm Thomas (San Diego State), Chris Wright (Dayton) and Dwight Hardy (St. John's)

After missing the last three games with a sprained left big toe, or turf toe, Corey Stokes could be back in the lineup Monday night when 15th-ranked Villanova takes on No. 17 Syracuse at the Wells Fargo Center. Stokes, the Wildcats' second-leading scorer with a 14.6-point average, has not played since midway through the second half of a Feb. 9 game at Rutgers. He shot with his teammates before Saturday's game at DePaul and Sunday during a light practice. Villanova coach Jay Wright said Monday is the first day Stokes could go through a full workout, and he will be tested in drills to see if he can play without pain.

It's Syracuse-Villanova at the Wells Fargo Center tonight. A month ago, these teams were a combined 34-1. Since then, they are 9-11. Such is life in the Big East. It is such a slog that both needed OT Saturday to win against teams (DePaul and Rutgers) that are 5-23 in the league. Syracuse had to watch an attempted Rutgers game-winner miss at the end of regulation. The only time Rutgers ever won at Syracuse was in 1975 - Jim Boeheim was not yet the coach and they were still playing home games at Manley Field House.

Villanova's Corey Fisher was named to the All-Big East second team and teammate Corey Stokes earned third-team honors yesterday in voting by the coaches, who were not permitted to vote for their own players. Fisher led the Wildcats in scoring at 15.5 points per game and assists at 4.8. Stokes averaged 14.9 points and 3.3 rebounds, and was the team's top three-point threat (82-for-190, 43.2 percent). Notre Dame's Ben Hansbrough was the only unanimous selection. The six first-team players are also the top six scorers in the league, with Kemba Walker (Connecticut)

CLEVELAND - They led by 10 and then it was four. They led by nine and then it was one. They led by six with less than 2 minutes left. Tell me if you've heard this one before. The dismal end to Villanova's dismal ending came in much the same form, a hard-fought lead evaporated through bad decisions and bad shots and yes, bad luck. The salve for skittish fans of a team entering the NCAA tournament on a five-game skid is to blast out to a 20-point lead, run away with the game, get everybody involved, get everyone feeling good about themselves.

Though neither one is expected to be selected by an NBA team in Thursday's NBA draft, Villanova products Corey Stokes and Corey Fisher can see themselves making a living in the league. Both were among a group of five potential picks who worked out for the 76ers yesterday at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Also working out were Tulsa's Justin Hurtt, Bengaly Fofana of France and Connecticut's Charles Okwandu. "I can play in this league," Fisher flatly stated after meeting with the Sixers' brass.

(On the occasion of Villanova being voted No. 1 in the nation in both polls, it seemed like a good time for Dick Jerardi and Mike Kern to have a talk about the Wildcats - where they've been, where they're going, and how they might compare to some of the great Jay Wright teams of the recent past. For the record, the Wildcats are the first Philadelphia team to be No. 1 since Saint Joseph's in 2004.)   DJ : I love watching this team because of the effort, passing and understanding of how to win close games.

PHILADELPHIA college basketball fans can remember the shot. Scottie Reynolds raced the length of the court and made a tough runner to send Villanova in its fourth Final Four. While it is the last shot, and the celebration that ensued, that people will remember, there was a lot more to that team than just Reynolds' heroics. That year, 2009, the Wildcats were balanced with talent, experience and leadership. Dwayne Anderson was one of the senior starters on the squad, and led it both on and off the court.

There are a lot of guards running around in the preseason on Villanova's Davis Center practice floor, and that makes Jay Wright happy. Wright has seen some good guard groupings on his court on a fairly regular basis over the years. Randy Foye and Allan Ray arrived on the Main Line in 2002 and combined with Kyle Lowry and Mike Nardi to carry the Wildcats to within one win of the NCAA semifinals in 2006. That Final Four berth came around in 2009 thanks to the play of guards Scottie Reynolds, Corey Fisher, Reggie Redding, and Corey Stokes.

Twenty-seven days. For 27 days, at the height of the 2010-11 basketball season, Villanova went without a victory. At a time when teams were building momentum for conference tournaments and the NCAAs, the Wildcats were in free fall, losing their last six games, including a first-round NCAA defeat to George Mason that brought their season to a sudden end. After a 16-1 start, the Cats finished 5-11. There were nagging injuries to Corey Fisher and Corey Stokes, plus a late-season injury to Mouphtaou Yarou, and the February schedule was brutal.

THERE SEEM to be two Villanova men's basketball teams: The one with numbers attached to it. And that other one that only the Wildcats seem to see. We see a team with zero seniors, with more than half its scoring gone from last season, a team picked to finish in the second tier of the Big East this season. They see depth and height, the likes of which Jay Wright said he's never had before, even during that Final Four run in 2009. "We're even bigger," the 'Cats' coach said at yesterday's media day. We see a six-game losing streak that ended last year's thud-to-the-ground finish.

TWO YEARS AGO, Villanova's basketball program was coming off its first Final Four appearance in a quarter-century, the culmination of a five-season run in which the Wildcats got to a Final Four and a pair of Sweet 16s. At the time, it seemed as if the only question was how high was up? These days, that seems like quite a while ago. Because ever since then, the endings haven't been happy. After a program-best 20-1 start in 2009-10, they dropped six of their final nine to finish 25-8, losing in the second round of the NCAA Tournament as a No. 2 seed.
