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.

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 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.

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.

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.

YOU WOULDN'T expect that a French-trained executive chef in a French-owned hotel chain would have boyish charm and a Midwestern accent that could cast him in an episode of "Fargo. " Yet here's Justin Perdue, who arrived from Chicago this spring to take over the kitchen at Hotel Sofitel Philadelphia, on 17th Street. Originally from Wisconsin, Perdue, 33, trained in Manhattan at the French Culinary Institute and worked under fellow FCI alum Bobby Flay at Bar Americain. Perdue eventually moved to Chicago, working at several places before becoming sous chef at the Michelin-starred Sixteen under chef Frank Brunacci.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - By the time Kevin Allred walked in, his students had just finished discussing the day's reading on black feminism and Billie Holiday, had tied the ideas to some of Beyoncé's work, and had begun analyzing the identity politics in her songs and videos. For what looks at first glance like just a fun undergraduate class at Rutgers University on the reigning queen of pop, his students sure were going above and Beyoncé. As Kanye West rapped in the background, Allred began discussing his latest album, Yeezus , comparing it with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy ("So good")

SOME SAY there's nothing new in the Afghan war documentary "Korengal," but the context of its release certainly makes it feel urgent. Surely the movie should be seen by Tony Blair and/or Dick Cheney, who are now trying to put their let's-go-back-to-Iraq band (the Zombies?) back together. "Korengal" is assembled from footage Sebastian Junger (and killed-on-the-job war cinematographer Tim Hetherington) couldn't fit into "Restrepo," the you-are-there Afghan war documentary about GIs stationed at a remote outpost on a mountain top overlooking a Taliban-infested valley, one of the few really good views of the war afforded moviegoers during that conflict.

STATE COLLEGE - One day, he's driving home the game-winning runs in the Class AAAA state championship game and the next, La Salle High junior Brian Buckley is headed to the United States Military Academy at West Point to learn about life as a cadet. As far as fulfilling goals and realizing dreams go, Buckley won the weekend. The 6-foot, 208-pound Huntingdon Valley resident, sprayed a liner up the middle with the bases loaded in yesterday's eighth inning, plating two runs and pushing the Explorers toward a 4-2 triumph over feisty Conestoga at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

BRAD SCHNEIDER was just a sophomore for La Salle High in 2012 when he stepped to the plate, knees knocking in the quarterfinals of the Class AAAA playoffs. Schneider, who missed nearly that entire Catholic League season with an ankle injury, was called upon in the seventh inning in a sacrifice-bunt situation against Central Dauphin. "First at-bat pretty much of that whole year," Schneider said Wednesday as the Explorers (18-5) prepared for today's PIAA championship game. "I was so nervous, but I got the bunt down and, on the next pitch, Ryan Otis hit a sacrifice fly and we went to the semifinals.

IN THE CUOCI family, at least one apple hasn't fallen too far from the tree. In fact, as ultra-intense La Salle High senior Dom Cuoci dominated on the mound yesterday at Neumann University, his father, Lorenzo, stood behind the fence in rightfield barking out encouragement with an unmistakable baritone. "Oh, I can hear him," Cuoci said yesterday after his two-hit shutout lifted the Explorers, 3-0, against Spring-Ford in the Class AAAA semifinals. The Explorers will face District 1 No. 3 seed Conestoga on Friday at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park in State College.

Once on the brink of being a spectator in the district and state playoffs, La Salle is now a win away from a second PIAA Class AAAA baseball championship in three seasons. "It's pretty special," senior righthander Dom Cuoci said. "We're fortunate to be where we are. When it happens, you really have to savor it. That's what we're doing. " In Monday's state semifinal against Spring-Ford, Cuoci, a senior righthander, pitched a two-hitter with nine strikeouts as the Explorers downed Spring-Ford, 3-0, in 1 hour, 19 minutes at Neumann University in Aston.

Just as the Franklin Institute eases into its new 53,000-square-foot, $41 million Nicholas and Athena Karabots Pavilion, which opens Saturday, the science center figures it needs to get out of the building more often. And it is. The 190-year-old institute is opening science high schools in Egypt and Philadelphia, training teachers in science curriculum, and developing programs that turn on young scholars to careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Some of these programs are well-established.

Carlos Santana has been and done many things in his 40-year-plus career as a guitarist and composer, but one thing the Mexican-born titan of psychedelic rock has avoided, until now, was an album solely dedicated to his ethnic roots. Santana, 66, who plays the Borgata on June 13 and 14, just never felt the need to make a Latin music album. "For us, it's a way of life, not a product or a project," he explains. "All in due time. " "Due time" arrived in May, when Santana's latest album, Corazon , appeared.

IT WAS MID-MAY and Dom Cuoci's distinguished baseball career at La Salle College High was all but over. Slowed by late-season back problems, the 6-3, 210-pound righthander could only sit inside his Doylestown home and watch television, ice packs affixed to his body, as the Catholic League playoffs went on without him.
