When Princeton coach Bill Carmody asked his team to shut down Dartmouth's two guards, his players went overboard. No. 11 Princeton held host Dartmouth's starting backcourt scoreless and routed the Big Green, 71-39, last night. Dartmouth guards P.J. Halas and Greg Buth, who average a total of 20 points a game, were a combined 0-for-15 from the field. Together, they had only two assists along with five turnovers. Overall, Dartmouth shot only 29 percent from the field and missed 16 of 19 shots from three-point range against the nation's stingiest defensive team, which allows only 50 points per game.

Penn last night played a team reminiscent of the Princeton Tigers, the undisputed kingpins of the Ivy League. Most people know and appreciate Princeton's winning style of play. In the end, however, Dartmouth was no Princeton. The Quakers overcame the Big Green's deliberate motion offense to register a 76-63 triumph at the Palestra - a victory that assured them of at least a .500 season. And with four games remaining on their schedule, they now need only one more victory to finish above .500 for the first time since 1985-86.

When the coaching staff at Dartmouth saw the upside of St. Joseph's Prep offensive lineman John Vellutato, it had one question for Hawklets coach Gil Brooks: "Why wasn't anyone else recruiting this guy?" Vellutato, a 6-foot-5, 325-pounder, has given an oral commitment to play his college football with the Big Green. "They looked at him and saw a guy who's going to get better and better," said Brooks. "John's best days are still ahead of him. The Dartmouth coaching staff told me they got a steal.

The closer Gil Brooks looked at the game films, the more he realized that St. Joseph's Prep senior Matt Battipaglia had come up with an incredible football season. Battipaglia, a 6-foot-5, 295-pound offensive tackle, helped make the Hawks one of the best teams in the area last season. They finished 12-1 and were ranked sixth in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer. He also helped make the Prep's offensive line the best in the city. Yesterday, Battipaglia announced that he will play for Dartmouth next season.

It may not be Ripkenesque, but the University of Pennsylvania has a little consecutive-game magic of its own going. Penn's football team has won 21 straight games, a Division I-AA record. The players embrace it, and all the hoopla that surrounds it. Sure, they think about The Streak. Sure, they think about who might end it. William & Mary, right? The school that Penn plays near midseason, the one that gives players scholarships to play, unlike Penn and its Ivy League opponents.

Those who saw it will have a hard time forgetting the way Penn's Hassan Duncombe tipped in a missed free throw as time ran out to lift the Quakers to a 51-50 win over visiting Princeton last Tuesday. But Penn had better forget it. Sure, the win was important because it helped keep the Quakers in the running for the Ivy League title. But in the long run it was just one game and Penn still has eight left this season, beginning with tonight's clash against visiting Dartmouth.
