The drought is about to end for one school. Denver will make its first appearance Monday in the Division I men's lacrosse national championship game since becoming a member in 1999. However, the Pioneers are coached by Princeton legend Bill Tierney, who is no stranger to playing on Memorial Day, having coached the Tigers in eight championship games and winning six. Conversely, Maryland coach John Tillman joked that he was just a kid in 1975 when Maryland won its last crown. Something has to give when the teams square off at Lincoln Financial Field.

After his team allowed victory to slip away in regulation, Denver's Wesley Berg made sure it wouldn't happen again in overtime. Berg scored the game-winner 1 minute, 57 seconds into the extra period to lift the Pioneers over Notre Dame, 11-10, Saturday in an NCAA men's lacrosse semifinal at Lincoln Financial Field. Denver (16-2), which has never won an NCAA lacrosse title, will face Maryland (15-3), which has not won the crown since 1975, in the championship game at 1 p.m. Monday at the Linc.

The Notre Dame lacrosse team has a lingering memory of its last trip to the Philadelphia area, and it's not a good one. Three weeks ago, the Irish (12-2) were the top-ranked team in the country. That would have been a surprise to anyone who had not seen them play before, as they suffered a 13-8 loss to Duke in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The Blue Devils - who handed the Irish an 11-9 defeat in last season's NCAA title game - raced out to a 10-1 third-quarter lead from which the Irish would never recover.

FROM A HISTORICAL perspective, little is unusual about the lacrosse national semifinal matchup between the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University tomorrow at Lincoln Financial Field. Since they first met in 1895, the Terps and Blue Jays have played more than 100 times, and the rivalry between the Maryland institutions is widely considered the greatest in collegiate lacrosse. Still, something is unique about this Hopkins/Maryland meeting - part of this weekend' NCAA Division I Lacrosse Final Four - and it could be the most important event for lacrosse in decades.

DENVER - Justin De Fratus turned around and watched as the ball traveled toward the wall in left-center at Coors Field. His two-strike, two-out pitch in the eighth inning quickly became Nick Hundley's third home run, and the Phillies trailed again. They could not battle back from their third deficit of the night. A 6-5 loss to the Colorado Rockies snapped the Phillies season-high winning streak at six games Tuesday night. "A pitch I was trying to get in the dirt," De Fratus said.

DENVER - The pregame talk centered on the supposedly inspired Denver Nuggets. 76ers coach Brett Brown even said they were playing with a little more purpose since the teams last met on Feb. 2. "They have talent," Brown said. "You look at their roster, and they're talented. . . . They have enough talent and depth to win in this league. On first glance, that's what I see. " But what 14,068 fans at the Pepsi Center witnessed was the Sixers snapping their 16-game road losing streak.

DENVER - The adjustment, to say the least, has been strenuous. New country, unfamiliar teammates, different style of play. Those are just some of the things Furkan Aldemir has encountered since leaving his native Turkey and coming over to join the 76ers on Dec. 15. After slowly getting worked into the rotation and seeing action in 17 of 18 games, Aldemir was relegated to the bench and played in only five of the next 15. But with a contract...

DENVER - In his 60 games as a 76er, Robert Covington has started 40 of them. Sometimes it appears he prefers being the starter, as was the case Tuesday night when he scored a team-high 21 points and made 5-of-6 three pointers in a loss at Sacramento. Last night in Denver, with Jason Richardson back in the starting lineup, Covington went back to the bench. His play didn't lessen a bit, however, as he poured in 25 points to lead the Sixers (18-54) to a 99-85 in over the Denver Nuggets to close out their three game, west coast swing with their lone win and in doing so snapped a 16-game road losing streak.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The Eagles' new defensive backs coach won't have the same Pro Bowl talent in Philadelphia that he did in Denver. Three of the four starters from the Broncos secondary are in the Pro Bowl on Sunday, which reflects well on Cory Undlin, who came to the Eagles from Denver this week. But Undlin can't bring the Pro Bowlers with him. Cornerback Aqib Talib, cornerback Chris Harris, and safety T.J. Ward are all in the Pro Bowl from Denver's secondary. Undlin also coached Colts safety Mike Adams, who made the Pro Bowl in his first season after leaving Denver.

DENVER - The people with the cameras and the reflective green vests formed a buffer on all sides, moving as Peyton Manning moved, a dozen or so shuffling steps from midfield toward the Indianapolis Colts' sideline. From above, Manning looked like the nucleus of some colorful amoeba. Usually the winning quarterback gets the bigger throng, but the crowd around Andrew Luck looked decidedly smaller yesterday, until both groups briefly joined into a huge mass, as Manning shook hands with his successor.
