Cann, a four-year starting midfielder, said she will receive a partial soccer scholarship. She made her decision late last week. Cann chose East Carolina over the College of New Jersey.

St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli could have used a deadeye shooter or two last night. His Hawks shot just 38.5 percent from the field in a 68-64 loss at East Carolina. "We have to create layups, and tonight we didn't complete the three-on-twos and the two-on-ones that we should have completed," Martelli said. "We have to score layups, or we're not going to be in the win column. " The Hawks (3-2) are 0-for-North Carolina, their other loss coming to Duke in Durham, 89-60, on Nov. 20. "The preparation obviously was not proper to win a road game," Martelli said.

Gloucester Catholic junior infielder Joe Brooks has made an early college decision, deciding to accept a partial baseball scholarship to East Carolina. Gloucester Catholic coach Dennis Barth said Brooks received considerable college interest while competing this summer for Brooklawn's Senior American Legion team. Brooks was named the most valuable player of the New Jersey state tournament as Brooklawn won its 24th state championship. Brooklawn then finished second in the Mid-Atlantic Regional in West Lawn, Pa. Brooks also enjoyed a standout sophomore season at Gloucester Catholic, helping the Rams win the Non-Public B state title.

It's too bad Texas Christian can't speed up its move to Conference USA. After a convincing 28-14 victory over No. 20 East Carolina last night night in the inaugural Mobile Alabama Bowl, the Horned Frogs believed they were ready to move on to bigger things. It will have to wait a year, though. TCU, currently a member of the Western Athletic Conference, is not scheduled to join East Carolina in C-USA until 2001. "Maybe we should go in next year," TCU coach Dennis Franchione said.

Memories. That's what East Carolina (0-3) has in its favor today, when the Pirates take their sad-sack act into Beaver Stadium to play Penn State. Memories of last season's first meeting with the Nittany Lions, when East Carolina pushed Penn State to the brink before losing, 17-10. Memories of how the Pirates outgained State in total offense, 385-323, but coughed up a chance to win with a fourth-quarter fumble. Memories of how they punctured State's offense with 258 yards rushing.

GREENVILLE, N.C. - A hustle play beat Temple on Wednesday at East Carolina. ECU, winless in its first six American Athletic Conference games, got a three-point play from freshman Kentrell Barkley with 1.8 seconds to lift the Pirates over the Owls, 64-61, in Minges Coliseum. The loss snapped a three-game win streak for Temple (11-8, 5-3 AAC). "That was just a hustle play," Owls sophomore forward Obi Enechionyia said of Barkley's rebound and put-back. "They got some dribble penetration on that last play that we probably should have stopped.

It hasn't gotten any easier for the once-hot Temple Owls. And it won't get any easier this Saturday when they host the best team they have seen all season. No. 21 East Carolina (6-1, 3-0 American Athletic Conference) has a high-octane offense that averages 39.6 points per game. The Pirates present a huge challenge to a Temple squad that has gone from talking earlier this month about possibly becoming bowl eligible to a team that just wants to put a check in the win column. "We have a tremendous task ahead of us this week," coach Matt Rhule said of the Pirates.

East Carolina sophomore defensive back Chris Hall of Pemberton High played a major role in the Pirates' 14-10 upset victory over Virginia Tech last week. Hall, a second-year starter, had a season-high nine tackles along with a fumble recovery. He leads the Pirates this season with six pass deflections. Hall, who last year was named one of the country's top freshman cornerbacks by the Sporting News, has 29 tackles and one interception this season. Another area starter for East Carolina is sophomore tight end Luke Fisher of Shawnee.

It appears as if Temple's Devin Coleman will be coming off the bench, and the 6-foot-2 senior couldn't be more indifferent. "It doesn't matter to me," Coleman said. "It doesn't matter at all. " He means that. Coleman, a Friends Central product who began his career at Clemson, isn't one to show much emotion. He just wants to contribute, and that hasn't been a problem this season. This season, he is averaging 9.6 points per game and 3.1 rebounds in 26.9 minutes. He started the first 12 games and was a solid contributor.

MY TOP four NCAA Tournament seeds if the selections were today: East - Maryland South - Oklahoma Midwest - Michigan State West - Kansas If Penn had held on against Princeton at the Palestra, it would have been a rare perfect Saturday in the city, with three of the wins being upsets, two by teams that had to be wondering when (or if) they were going to win again. La Salle, a 12-point underdog, did exactly what it was supposed to do against Dayton at Gola Arena, play a low-possession game to keep its six-man team as fresh as possible and not give the superior forces any more chances than necessary.

After a lackluster first half in which Temple was fortunate to be down by just five points, Quenton DeCosey put the Owls on his back. DeCosey scored 17 of his 24 points in the second half as Temple defeated East Carolina, 78-60, in an American Athletic Conference game Saturday night at the Liacouras Center. It matched DeCosey's season high, when he scored 24 points in a loss to Butler, and was four shy of his career high. Devin Coleman, who came off the bench for the second straight game after starting the first 12, added 17 points for Temple.

P.J. Walker thought it was a defining moment and who can blame Temple's junior quarterback for feeling that way? During a 7-0 season, Temple's closest call saw Walker shine in a late-game clutch performance. And if Temple needs Walker to step up against Notre Dame on Saturday night, that very performance, against Massachusetts, may be what made it all happen. In the third game of the season, after emotional wins over Penn State and Cincinnati, Temple struggled in a nonconference matchup at UMass.

GREENVILLE, N.C. - For one of the few times this season Temple's defense seemed to be reeling. The Owls trailed East Carolina 14-10 at halftime and had allowed 218 total yards. Considering that Temple had surrendered 244 total yards combined in its previous two wins over Tulane and Central Florida, this first-half performance was surprising. The second half was a different story for the No. 22 Owls, who reverted to form by pitching a shutout in the final two quarters during Thursday's 24-14 win at East Carolina.

GREENVILLE, N.C. - Temple discarded recent history to make some history of its own. Trailing by 14-10 after three quarters, the No. 22 Owls came back to defeat East Carolina, 24-14, Thursday night in an American Athletic Conference game before 39,417 at boisterous Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. The Owls have made history by opening a season 7-0 for the first time ever. Temple is also 4-0 in the AAC heading into its Oct. 31 game against Notre Dame at Lincoln Financial Field. The odds appeared to be against Temple when the Owls entered intermission trailing, 14-10.
