The "L-Train" - La Salle all-American Lionel Simmons - pulled into this Midwest depot yesterday, all spruced up for a rare appearance on network television. But while the camera's eye focused on the brilliant Simmons, America also learned that those weren't just a group of porters the 6-foot-7 senior brought along with him. Putting together one of its most complete performances during Simmons' Reign of Terror, La Salle (3-0) blew away DePaul, 83-62, to hand the Blue Demons (3-3)

There were enough big plays, good plays and just plain old hustle to fill two games when DePaul and Kansas met last night in the first round of the NCAA East Regional at Wake Forest University's Lawrence Joel Coliseum. In fact, the teams needed more than regulation to decide the matter and, as always, the biggest and best play was the one that sealed the win. Kansas forward Kenny Gregory, who had been a thorn in DePaul's side all night with 11-for-12 shooting from the floor, came up with a block of a Quentin Richardson jumper in the waning seconds of overtime, and the Jayhawks held on for the 81-77 victory.

With its surprising victory over Georgetown on Sunday, DePaul struck a blow for the dwindling number of Division I independents. Until that victory by the Blue Demons at Landover, Md., there was a strong possibility that the NCAA could hand out the 64 bids to its postseason tournament on March 10 without tendering a single invitation to an independent. And why should it? Looking at the records of the 17 independent major- college programs through Monday night, only five were at or above .500.

The structure of Division I college basketball continued to change yesterday with the official creation of the Great Midwest. The formation of the NCAA's 34th conference ends DePaul's independent status. The Blue Demons join Alabama-Birmingham, Cincinnati, Marquette, Memphis State and St. Louis University in the non-football conference, which will begin play in the 1991-92 season. It may also mean the end of the Metro Conference, which now has only four members after the defection of Cincinnati and Memphis State in addition to departures by Florida State (to the Atlantic Coast Conference)

TAYLOR HOLEMAN and Rachel Roberts each notched career-high point totals as Villanova topped visiting DePaul, 65-45, in a women's Big East game Wednesday. Roberts scored 19 points and Holeman added 14 to lead the Wildcats (12-2, 2-0), who shot only 3-for-25 from the arc.

Devon Kane added 10 points for Villanova, which shot 67 percent on two-point attempts and led by as many as 24 points late in the game.

Boo Harvey's 15-foot jumper at the buzzer gave St. John's a 53-52 victory over DePaul in the semifinals of the preseason National Invitation Tournament last night. The Redmen (No. 25 AP preseason poll) appeared on the way to defeat in the final seconds as they desperately tried to foul while DePaul passed and dribbled the ball at its end. Finally, just before he was fouled, DePaul guard Melvon Foster was called for traveling, giving St. John's possession with 5.7 seconds left. After a timeout, Harvey took the inbounds pass and drove three-quarters of the court for the winning jumper, giving St. John's a berth in Friday's final against the winner of the UNLV-Kansas semifinal, also played last night.

It was hardly the ending Mike Sacca had envisioned. The Bishop Eustace softball coach took his Crusaders into yesterday's NJSIAA Parochial B state championship game against DePaul with a major chink in his armor. Sacca's top pitcher, Jen Bertolino, had hurled a two-hitter in Tuesday's South Jersey championship win over Gloucester Catholic. Then, on Wednesday, she suffered torn cartilage in her throwing shoulder while pitching in a recreational league game. Bertolino spent yesterday afternoon at Trenton State with a sling on her arm, and her teammates spent it losing to DePaul, 13-2.

Villanova junior Kris Jenkins continued his hot shooting Tuesday night with a career-high 31 points, and coach Jay Wright was asked how he can explain his player's offensive success. "He don't pass," Wright said with a deadpan expression. Then after the laughter at his postgame news conference subsided, he added, "He doesn't pass, and we don't want him to. " Jenkins, a 6-foot-6 forward, drilled eight three-point baskets in scoring the most points by a Villanova player this season and helped carry the third-ranked Wildcats to an 83-62 victory over DePaul in their last game of the season at the Pavilion.

Darryl Reynolds stood out for Villanova in the three games he started while senior center Daniel Ochefu was sidelined with a concussion, highlighted by a career game of 19 points and 10 rebounds in a road victory at Providence last Saturday. But coach Jay Wright might have liked Reynolds' performance in the Wildcats' next game at DePaul - the program's first ever as the nation's No. 1 team - even more. Reynolds, a 6-foot-8 junior from Lower Merion High, kept up his level of play with Ochefu back in the lineup, contributing 14 points and six rebounds Tuesday in an 86-59 victory.

ROSEMONT, Ill. - Villanova coach Jay Wright admitted Tuesday night that he was worried about how his team would handle its first game ever as the No. 1 team in college basketball. He needn't have worried. Villanova treated its history-making night with the same workmanlike effort it had exhibited through many of its 23 previous games this season, breaking the contest open with a run of 15 consecutive points to start the second half and rolling to an 86-59 victory over DePaul at Allstate Arena.

Being the big dog in the Big East in the three seasons since the conference was revamped, Villanova has found the buzz ratcheted up against it on the road in the hostility of the crowd and the intensity of the opposing team seeking the upset. But it's a different world coming up when the Wildcats visit DePaul on Tuesday night as the nation's newest No. 1 team in men's college basketball. Results released Monday of the balloting in the Associated Press vote of 65 media members and the USA Today survey of 32 coaches found Villanova with the most total points in each.

Former all-American Chris Mullin has been offered the head coaching job at his alma mater, St. John's, ESPN reported Sunday. The Red Storm and coach Steve Lavin parted ways on Friday. Lavin coached five seasons at St. John's, where the Red Storm made two NCAA tournament appearances. Mullin was drafted seventh overall in 1985 by Golden State and played in the NBA from 1985-2001 for the Warriors and the Indiana Pacers. He has also been a member of the front office for both the Sacramento Kings and the Warriors following his retirement.

ROSEMONT, Ill. - Basketball can be such an uncomplicated sport, as Villanova showed on Saturday. DePaul dominated the first half against the No. 7 Wildcats, leading by 11 points at one stage and by 37-31 at the half after shooting 52 percent. But in the visitors' locker room at Allstate Arena, instead of diagramming new defensive strategies, coach Jay Wright merely asked his team to better follow the defensive game plan. The advice worked. The Wildcats limited the Blue Demons to 18 points and 30 percent shooting in the second half, got their offense revved up behind Ryan Arcidiacono, and pulled out a 68-55 victory that vaulted the Cats back into first place in the Big East Conference.

ROSEMONT, Ill. – The last time Villanova saw DePaul on a basketball court, the Wildcats mostly were watching the Blue Demons in their rear-view mirror. The visitors, who came into the Pavilion at a Big East-best 3-0 in conference, trailed by 21 at the half and by 34 midway through the second half. That 81-64 victory by Villanova touched off a slide in which the Blue Demons have lost four of six entering Saturday's rematch at Allstate Arena. But Wildcats coach Jay Wright doesn't want his team, ranked No. 7 this week, to remember anything about the ease of their Jan. 10 meeting.
