Even though this isn't a Colonial Athletic Association game, Villanova football coach Andy Talley left no doubt about the importance of the nonconference matchup at Fordham at 6 p.m. Saturday. "This is a must-win game," Talley said. That wasn't just coach-speak. The Wildcats are coming off an impressive performance in Saturday's 24-14 loss at Boston College. That won't hurt Villanova in the minds of the Football Championship Subdivision playoff committee members. Yet losing to an FCS team such as Fordham would be a major setback for a Villanova team that is ranked No. 8 by the Sports Network and has national title aspirations.

Carl Jones didn't lack motivation or production. Coming off his most disappointing effort of the season, Jones scored a game-high 24 points and shot 5 of 8 from beyond the arc as St. Joseph's earned an 82-56 Atlantic Ten win over Fordham on Saturday at Hagan Arena. In the previous game, Wednesday's 70-53 loss at St. Louis, Jones was limited to two points, shooting 1 for 9 from the field. "Today I tried to redeem myself as much as possible," Jones said. With the victory, the Hawks are 16-11 and 7-7 in the A-10.

St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli called a timeout with 1 minute, 46 seconds remaining in a six-point game. His Hawks had let Fordham back within striking distance after leading by as many as 13 points. There was no doubt where St. Joseph's was going to go to ensure a victory. Chris Wilson drained a three-point shot from the right wing to push the game out of reach, giving the Hawks their first Atlantic Ten win of the season, 66-55, Wednesday night at Hagan Arena. St. Joseph's finished the game on a 14-6 run. "It was a great read," Martelli said of Wilson's play.

Jeff Knoll, a 6-foot-11 center from Mercer Island, Wash., said last night that he wanted to play basketball for Penn and would turn down a scholarship offer from Fordham, which will enter the Atlantic Ten next season. "The Atlantic Ten is a great conference, but I think Fordham has big struggles ahead of it the next couple of years," Knoll said. "I want to go to the NCAA tournament more than anything. I watched every game this year. " Knoll said he was waiting for his application to Penn to be accepted.

Archbishop Ryan graduate Rick Hollawell and Fordham head football coach Larry Glueck have formed a productive partnership. Hollawell, Glueck's first recruit when he took over the Rams three years ago, has helped Fordham produce a winning team and national contender. "Rick is an outstanding football player, who has had an outstanding career at Fordham," said Glueck, whose team is 8-1 and hoping for its second straight NCAA Division III playoff berth. "He is a three-year starter and has been our leading rusher two years.

For Princeton, yesterday's 23-14 triumph over Fordham marked a successful return to old-fashioned football. The Tigers (1-1) ran the ball 55 times for 254 yards on a muddy, rain- soaked field at Palmer Stadium. Sophomore Erick Hamilton, making only his second start, rushed for 164 yards to lead Princeton in the non-conference game. Despite Princeton's success on the ground, the Rams (0-3) still almost stole a game the heavily-favored Tigers seemed to have in hand. Fordham is playing in only its second season at the Division I-AA level and had been outscored, 70-19, in its first two games.

In another measure of progress, St. Joseph's basketball team has exceeded its win total of last year. And the year before that. After earning 11 wins in each of the last two seasons, the Hawks improved to 12-5 with Wednesday's 80-62 win over Fordham in an Atlantic Ten matchup at Hagan Arena. The Hawks are now 2-1 in the A-10, while Fordham fell to 7-9 overall and 0-3 in the conference. Despite the win, this was far from an artistic success. St. Joe's went through sustained periods of inconsistency, but Fordham simply struggled to score.

Drexel added a reputable team - though not a winning one - to its list of conquests at the Physical Education Center last night. The opponent was tradition-rich Fordham, which wound up a 70-65 loser in the first game ever played between the two schools. For struggling Fordham (3-9), the two-time defending Patriot League champion, it was the eighth loss in its last nine games. Drexel won its second game in a row and improved to 7-4. "What this game means is that we beat a team with an excellent reputation," said Drexel coach Bill Herrion.
