Eddie Johnson is on the edge of something big this season. The Monsignor Bonner junior is one of the better golfers in the Catholic League, with a chance to be the best if he attains consistency in his game. Johnson enters this golf season as the Friars' No. 1 player. He averaged 39.5 strokes over nine holes last season in the No. 3 slot for Bonner. But one bad shot always hurt him. At the Catholic League championship on the south course of Philmont Country club, Johnson was 1-under par until the par-5 seventh hole.

Back from their European excursion, the 76ers got yesterday off to rest, but will resume their exhibition season tonight when they host the New York Knicks at the Wachovia Center. Game time is 7 p.m. As they get reacclimated to American shores, they have a new vice president who will acclimate to the NBA. The Sixers hired Steve Yaros as vice president of marketing, with duties including overseeing all the advertising promotions and game-day preparations. Yaros had spent 3 years as the general manager of the Delmarva Shorebirds baseball team, which is also owned by Comcast-Spectacor, owner of the Sixers.

The Phoenix Suns last night traded forward Ed Pinckney to Sacramento for forward Eddie Johnson and also dealt center William Bedford to Detroit for a first-round selection in 1989. The deals came just before the NBA's trading deadline. Trades were not permitted from 12:01 a.m. today until the second round of today's NBA draft. The 6-foot-9 Pinckney, a star on Villanova's 1985 national-championship team, was the Suns' top choice in the 1985 draft. Pinckney, 24, averaged 8.5 points and 3.9 rebounds as a rookie and improved to 10.5 points and 7.3 rebounds last season.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Landon Donovan scored two goals and set up another, and the United States beat Honduras, 3-1, last night to advance to the CONCACAF Gold Cup final. The United States struck first when Donovan found Eddie Johnson running through the middle of the Honduran defense. Johnson took a dribble and powered a shot past goalkeeper Donis Escober, giving the U.S. a lead 11 minutes into the game. In the 27th minute, Johnson started another scoring sequence with a pass to midfielder Alejandro Bedoya.

James Worthy scored 32 points yesterday, including five straight in the final 1 minute, 19 seconds, as the Los Angeles Lakers overcame a 17-point halftime deficit to beat the Houston Rockets, 104-100. The victory made Pat Riley the winningest playoff coach in NBA history and gave the Lakers a lead of two games to none in the best-of-five series, which switches to Houston for games tomorrow and, if necessary, Thursday. The Rockets won both regular-season meetings at the Summit against the Lakers this year.

As the ball left Eddie Johnson's hand and spun slowly upward, there was plenty of time to think. Under the basket, Karl Malone could consider all the layups he had missed, and how just one or two of them would have rendered moot Johnson's last-second effort to break a tie game. Lunging desperately to reach Johnson, Utah guard Jeff Hornacek could already hear coach Jerry Sloan berate his team for somehow leaving Johnson - coming off a 31-point game - wide open for the potential winning shot.

James Worthy scored 14 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter and the Los Angeles Lakers hit six free throws in the final 38 seconds to beat the Phoenix Suns, 110-107, last night and take a 3-0 lead in their best-of-seven Western Conference final series. The two-time defending champion Lakers can wrap up the series in Game 4 tomorrow at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum. No NBA team has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit to win a best-of-seven playoff series. Los Angeles is now 10-0 in the playoffs this season, breaking the league record of nine consecutive wins the Lakers set in 1982.

Seattle SuperSonics coach George Karl surveyed the NBA Western Conference finals the other day and predicted that the war had only just begun. As with other conflicts, it isn't the generals or the dashing cavalry who will decide this one. Look for the muddy foot soldiers instead. The Sonics protected some vulnerable flanks with a 120-101 win Sunday that tied the series at two games apiece. They did so for a number of reasons. But just as unheralded bench player Frank Johnson lifted Phoenix in the previous game, it was a quiet, unexpected boost from Eddie Johnson of Seattle that solidified the Sonics' attack in Game 4. Cannons are nice, and Seattle has quite a few, but someone has to drag them into place.

Charles Barkley sat around in his hotel room telling himself he just had to relax and play ball against the Phoenix Suns. Then he thought about the nearly 60 tickets he had left for friends and relatives from his nearby home of Leeds. "That got a little nerve-wracking, because those people don't get to see me play in person all that often," he said after nailing 30 points in the Sixers' 133-126 preseason victory over the Phoenix Suns last night. "It's not like they're going to get to see me on TV a lot. CBS has no respect for us. We're not on CBS this year.

Some things are difficult to figure out. Since being traded last season from D.C. United, Union midfielder Danny Cruz had one goal in his first 19 games and none this season. Then, in the second half of Saturday's game against Seattle, he put two in the back of the net in a one-minute span. Cruz's heroics enabled the Union to earn a 2-2 tie with the Sounders in a feisty Major League Soccer game before 18,344 at PPL Park. The Union (3-3-3) thought they should have received a penalty kick late in second-half stoppage time on a kick by Conor Casey, but there was no call.

ST. JOHN'S, Antigua - In his first game back with the U.S. national team, Eddie Johnson scored twice on Friday night, including the winning goal in second-half injury time, to lift the United States to the verge of advancing in World Cup qualifying with a nervous, 2-1 road win in the rain over Antigua and Barbuda. Johnson connected on headers in the 20th minute and then in the dying moments in his first game for the U.S. team in two years. He was added to the squad by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, ostensibly replacing the disappointing Jozy Altidore.

In Andalo, Italy, giant slalom specialist Ted Ligety pocketed another win on Friday, and this one comes with quite a Christmas present: a $78,000 prize. The American won the Alpine Rockfest exhibition event at the Paganella resort, edging Italy's Giovanni Borsotti by the slimmest of margins, 0.01 of a second. Cyprien Richard of France finished third. The event featured five knockout rounds of short giant slalom runs, with the winner taking all the cash. Ligety, who is aiming for his fourth World Cup giant slalom title this season, said: "It's the best Christmas present I could give myself.

Eddie Johnson wanted to leave an impression in his senior year for Monsignor Bonner. Johnson did just that, finishing with an 82 at the Catholic League championships on Tuesday at Stonewall Country Club. Johnson's 82 placed him among the top 15 in the league and enabled him to finish seventh overall in the individual league standings with 223.5 points. That earned him all-Catholic League recognition. He shot a 38 on the front nine at the league championship, after a shaky start that included a couple of bogeys on the first few holes.
