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.

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.

HAMDEN, Conn. - Guard Jordan Price scored La Salle's last eight points, including the game-winning free throws with 3 seconds left, as the Explorers rallied to defeat Quinnipiac last night, 60-58. With 18 points, Price was La Salle's only double-figure scorer. The Explorers (2-0) trailed by 11 in the first half and by 10 with 13 minutes remaining in the game. They also lost senior forward Jerrell Wright after halftime because of a back injury. "If we ever get clicking offensively, we could really have a good team," said Explorers coach John Giannini.

DOUG OLIVER, former press secretary for Mayor Nutter and currently an executive at Philadelphia Gas Works, is considering a run for mayor. From a fourth-floor office at the Bellevue yesterday, he announced the launch of an exploratory committee that will work to gauge his chances of succeeding Nutter in 2015. The "DO2015" exploratory committee is what Oliver describes as a "grass-roots, crowd-initiated and crowd-funded effort to re-engage the Philadelphia voter. " Oliver took some heat when, in 2012, he changed his voter registration to Republican.

Philadelphia University had built an exhibition reputation for itself this month, taking on Division I schools, beating James Madison and taking a one-point lead at Pittsburgh before losing by 11. On Monday night, La Salle clearly took Herb Magee's Division II Rams seriously, and the Explorers looked energized defensively from the start, grabbing a quick 18-4 lead at Tom Gola Arena on their way to a 79-61 victory in the final exhibition for both...

After his two brothers attended and played football at La Salle, Aidan Kerrigan says it was pretty much a no-brainer to follow in their footsteps. "I got a good feel for all the school had to offer," the 18-year-old said. "I knew it would be the perfect place for me academically and athletically. " Connor Kerrigan (Class of 2012) was a second-team all-Catholic League center for the Explorers; John Kerrigan (2009) played linebacker. This season, as a ball-hawking inside linebacker and senior captain, Aidan Kerrigan has played a key role in La Salle's drive to the Catholic League Class AAAA championship game.

They say that a team takes on the personality and demeanor of its coach. If you had watched a Bob Peffle-coached La Salle soccer team for just one half, you'd have been convinced of that. Nothing ever seemed to get to Peffle, who for 28 years helped the Explorers reach the top of the Philadelphia Catholic League, as well as Southeastern Pennsylvania boys' soccer. On the sideline, he was always prepared - most of the time, overprepared - calm, and ever so competitive. And just like its leader, La Salle was consistent, poised with the ball, and not easily flustered.

Millions of Americans suffer from recurring chest pain that is hard to explain and treat because it is not caused by their hearts. They often undergo extensive testing and end up on drugs for acid reflux, depression, or even lung disease. But only about 40 percent of noncardiac chest-pain patients respond to these drugs. And most still have painful symptoms, said Temple University gastroenterol-ogist Ron Schey. Now, he may have found a novel way to treat some of them: dronabinol, a synthetic form of marijuana.

Challenged by financial analysts who had just learned of Pfizer Inc.'s declining revenue and small quarterly profit, chief executive officer Ian Read said Tuesday that the drugmaker would keep exploring the purchase of a foreign company in the hope of paying less tax in America, U.S. Treasury Department efforts to the contrary. New rules announced in September made a so-called tax-inversion deal "more complicated" and "potentially limits the value," Read said, but the right deal is still worthwhile.
