La Salle lost its hopes for qualifying for the Catholic League North Division playoffs yesterday when it lost a hard-fought, 61-58, decision to host Bishop Kenrick. The two teams played evenly throughout the game. The Explorers outscored the Knights by 13 points in the second quarter, and the Knights came back to outscore La Salle in the third quarter. The loss dropped La Salle's league record to 8-8 and its overall record to 12-13. Kenrick improved its league record to 10-6.

La Salle fought back from a horrendous first half to trail by just one in the closing minutes of last night's game with Texas-El Paso, but the Miners hung on to win, 69-62, in the opening game of the Sun Carnival Classic. "I thought we had them back on their heels, and I thought we had an opportunity to win it," coach Speedy Morris said. "But to their credit, UTEP kept their composure. " The Explorers (2-7), who had trailed by 14 points at the half, closed the gap 59-58 on a basket and free throw from Romaine Haywood with 2 minutes, 28 seconds left.

The La Salle women's soccer team drew the No. 25 ranking in the Soccer America poll this week. It's the first-ever appearance in the national rankings for the Explorers, who are the only Division I team in the nation - men or women - not to have allowed a goal this season. La Salle goes into Friday's home game against No. 19 Dayton (7 p.m.) with a 10-0-1 record. The Explorers received votes in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America national poll for the second straight week and remain third in the Mid-Atlantic region.

La Salle erased two ugly memories with its 66-60 victory at North Catholic yesterday. One recalled a game that had taken place less than 48 hours earlier. The other was ancient history, a specter more than 10 months old. A 50-29 loss to Bishop McDevitt on Friday night had embarrassed the Explorers. La Salle scored just 16 points in the first three quarters, and coach Marty Jackson inserted underclassmen from the junior varsity for the last 10 minutes. At practice the next day, Jackson rolled the tape from last March's 60-48 playoff defeat at North Catholic.

La Salle muscled its way past a banged-up Bishop Egan team Saturday for a 41-0 rout in Catholic League play. The Explorers stand at the top of the league's Northern Division at 3-0-1 and 6-0-1 overall. The Eagles hold down the other end of the division at 0-4 and 1-5. "Egan is really banged up, and that has everything to do with everything," Explorers coach Joe Colistra said. "We played well when we had to, I guess you'd say. It was an even game early on, but let's face it, Egan is banged up. " The Eagles had three first-half turnovers, but they managed to hold the Explorers to just a 14-0 lead after touchdown runs by Max Guevara and Bill Tatar.

Eight Explorers scored in double figures yesterday as La Salle opened the San Juan Shootout with a 117-86 rout of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez at Mario Morales Coliseum. La Salle (4-4) had its highest scoring output since a 120-88 victory over Iona on Jan. 4, 1992. Freshmen Jerrell Williams (20 points) and Kyle Griffin (16) posted career highs to lead the winners. Griffin hit 5 of 7 shots, including four three-pointers. Omar Velasquez sank a three-pointer for Mayaguez (1-9) to cut the La Salle lead to 54-50 with 19 minutes, 19 seconds to play, but Rodney Green hit a layup and Darnell Harris added a three-pointer to pad the Explorers' advantage.

Rasual Butler and Julian Blanks combined for 26 points last night, but they were unable to lift La Salle to a first-round victory in the Cable Car Classic in San Jose, Calif. The Explorers fell to Butler, 43-36, in front of 2,588 at San Jose Arena. The Bulldogs held the Explorers to their lowest point total in school history. La Salle lost to Evansville, 63-41, on Feb. 11, 1993, in its previous low. La Salle forged a 23-20 halftime lead over the Bulldogs, but managed only 13 second-half points as the team hit just 5 of 28 shots from the field.

Melvin Bryant set a school record with a 99-yard kickoff return, but La Salle couldn't sustain an offense yesterday and lost to visiting Fairfield, 25-14, at McCarthy Stadium. La Salle fell to 0-2; Fairfield improved to 1-1. The game was the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference opener for both teams. Fairfield's defense held the Explorers to one first down in the second half and minus-1 yard rushing for the game. The Stags' Rishawd Watson ran for 130 yards and two touchdowns, while Andrew Turf caught 11 passes for 136 yards.

With only two games remaining in the regular season, La Salle is capturing the must-win contests to stay in the Catholic League Northern Division playoff picture. Yesterday at Bishop Egan, the Explorers (10-4 league, 15-8 overall) unleashed a balanced attack to ground the Eagles (3-11, 6-17) by 71-50. And on Friday, La Salle routed North Catholic (7-7, 10-12) by 74-54. In both contests, the Explorers had four players in double figures. Against Egan, senior center Mark Fitzgerald led with 19 points.

La Salle needed a pit stop after playing something that looked more like the Indy 500 than a basketball game three nights ago against those breathless guys from Loyola Marymount. So the Explorers pulled back into the Civic Center last night with a new set of tires and left treadmarks all over Siena, 106-90, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game that was decided by halftime. On the way to the win, the Explorers (No. 21 AP) set a school record by making 13 three-point field goals.

It certainly didn't feel as though summer was drawing to a close as a sweat-soaked crowd gathered on Labor Day weekend under a blazing sun on Detroit's Hart Plaza to witness the first performance of guitar great Pat Metheny and famed bassist Ron Carter. When I mentioned to Carter I'd been fortunate enough to attend that Detroit Jazz Festival concert, giving me some idea of what to expect from the pair's reunion set for this weekend at the Exit Zero Jazz Festival in Cape May, he responded with a single word: "Surprise!"

'Give me a broken system, and I see the problem really easily," says Mark Jessen , a Palo Alto, Calif.-based IT technology consultant for global business-software maker SAP , on a visit last week to the company's North America headquarters in Newtown Square. Jessen is one of 100 people SAP has hired in its Autism at Work program since 2012. The first few hires were in India. SAP says it has developed supports to help autistic people cope with office demands they may find stressful, so they can apply their abilities to fixing software errors and other tasks.

Anyone interested in the future of new music in the city might have paid close attention to Timothy Weiss' dates last weekend with Orchestra 2001. The ensemble's search for a new artistic leader hasn't exactly gone as planned - snow prevented one candidate's appearance, and another withdrew - but Weiss reminded listeners this was less a search for conducting competence than for taste. It's safe to consider Sunday night's program at Christ Church Neighborhood House an expression of Weiss' interest in a particular aesthetic.

From the ballads sung by convicts in Australian penal colonies to "Folsom Prison Blues," song has been a means for incarcerated people to express their feelings about being locked up. Visual artist Erik Ruin and vocalist Gelsey Bell explore those thoughts and emotions in Prisoner's Song , which they'll perform at the Rotunda on Friday. The show, directed by Rick Burkhardt, uses Ruin's meticulously cut shadow puppets, which often resemble intricate woodcut images, and other projections to accompany a song cycle drawing on traditional folk ballads, poetry, archival sources, and audio interviews Ruin conducted with people who have spent time in prison.

NEW YORK - La Salle has been playing in the Atlantic Ten since 1995-96. During that time the Explorers have won more than one game in the conference tournament exactly once. That was in 2002, the first of coach Billy Hahn's three seasons, when they beat Fordham and Temple at the Spectrum before getting sent home by Richmond the semifinals. Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, in the last of the four second-round matchups, the Explorers had an opportunity to do it again, three years after they'd won three NCAA games in five days.

NEW YORK - La Salle played 13 road games this season. The Explorers won one. And that was in late November, against Division III Rowan, where coach John Giannini had won a national championship 20 years earlier. But they'd won two of their last three coming into the 40th Atlantic 10 Tournament, which for whatever reason isn't being played at Gola Arena. It's been a forgettable season for a program that made a captivating three-win run to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tourney as a 13 seed in 2013, while it awaits the addition of three promising transfers who were forced to sit this journey out. The last time the Explorers lost more times was 1995-96, when they went 6-24 in their inaugural season in the A-10 after leaving the Midwest Collegiate Conference following a demoralizing three-year stay.
