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 - 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.

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...

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.

DENVER - Facing frigid temperatures and a 9-day layoff, the Saint Joseph's Hawks lost their focus late last night against the Denver Pioneers, falling 77-73 in overtime. "To me, it's a fruitless trip to come all this way only to give a game away like that," Saint Joseph's head coach Phil Martelli said. "That's unacceptable. " The Hawks saw their seven-point halftime lead evaporate as the team had no answer for the Pioneers' press to begin the second half. Yet after going down 45-43 with just over 13 minutes remaining, the Hawks answered with a clutch, 11-0 run that included two big threes from DeAndre Bembry and Isaiah Miles.

DENVER - Facing frigid temperatures and a nine-day layoff, St. Joseph's lost it focus late against the Denver Pioneers in a 77-73 overtime loss Monday night. The Hawks looked ready to cruise after an 11-0 run in the middle of the second half before four crucial turnovers in the final seven minutes allowed the Pioneers (6-7) to tie it at 65 with 42 seconds remaining. Coming out of a timeout, Hawks coach Phil Martelli drew up a play for Isaiah Miles. The junior got a good look at a three but the shot rimmed out, giving Denver a glimmer of hope.

NEWARK, Del. - As the clocked ticked down to zero yesterday at the University of Delaware, all the Drexel men's lacrosse team could do was watch. Denver ran out the clock and commenced its modest celebration as Dragons coach Brian Voelker and his team watched, heads hanging heavy. Denver made sure early on that all Drexel would be able to do is watch, as the Pioneers dominated every facet of the game en route to a 15-6 win in the second round of the Division I NCAA Tournament.

NEWARK, Del. - The start, like the entire season, was so promising for the Drexel men's lacrosse team, but eventually the experience and talent of Denver won out. After Drexel took a 3-2 lead on a goal by Nick Trizano with 5 minutes, 35 seconds remaining in the first quarter, No. 5-seeded Denver turned on the afterburners. The Pioneers scored the next 10 goals Sunday in a 15-6 victory over Drexel in an NCAA quarterfinal at Delaware Stadium. Drexel's Ben McIntosh finally ended the drought when he scored his 100th career goal with 6:12 left in the third period.
