Haverford School striker Brett Campbell has committed to play soccer for Georgetown, Fords coach Bill Brady said Thursday night. Campbell, a junior, chose Georgetown from a crop of scholarship offers, which included Penn State, Penn, and Wake Forest. A year ago, Brady said, Penn might have been the front-runner for Campbell's services, but the draw of the Big East, of which Georgetown is a member, combined with the school's academic reputation, tipped Campbell toward the Hoyas.

Nigerian-born Omowumi Rafiu, a Neumann-Goretti basketball player whose introduction to the sport came a little more than four years ago in her native country, has signed a national letter of intent to play for Georgetown next season. The 6-foot-2 forward averaged about 11 points last season, her first at Neumann-Goretti, after coming to this country. She helped the Saints reach the quarterfinals of the Catholic League playoffs. Mike Flynn's Blue Star report ranks her 36th in the country at her position.

GEORGETOWN forward Greg Whittington stole the ball on the perimeter and dribbled up court, slowing slightly once he reached the paint to size up a defender, who was closing on him. Whittington dunked, anyway. There was little Longwood could do as No. 15 Georgetown cruised to an 89-53 victory Monday night. Otto Porter scored a career-high 22 points, added seven assists and four steals and returned after taking an apparent hit to the head during the second half. The point total for Georgetown (8-1)

Although both Georgetown and New Mexico won their first-round games Friday with impressive offensive numbers, it was excellent defense on the part of both teams that made it so easy. Georgetown, a popular choice to make it to the final of the Eastern Regional, if not to the Final Four, will get its first serious test at 12:15 this afternoon when the second-seeded Hoyas (27-7) meet the seventh-seeded Lobos (28-4) at Richmond Coliseum. Georgetown advanced to the second round with a 93-56 win over Mississippi Valley State, a win made easy when the Hoyas held the impatient Delta Devils to just 24 percent shooting in the first half.

The Florida Gulf Coast basketball players held their jerseys after the final buzzer so everyone could see the green "FGCU" embroidered across their chests.   Two hours earlier, those letters were irrelevant. Those letters are now forever in NCAA tournament lore. Fifteenth-seeded Florida Gulf Coast, or FGCU, pulled off one of the biggest upsets in tournament history with a 78-68 win over second-seeded Georgetown to advance to Sunday's third round.   "I told our team before the game that Georgetown is ranked eighth in the country.

WASHINGTON - Villanova's had been a very smooth ride for 18 games except for a small bump in North Jersey. Villanova's bus broke down 30 miles north of Baltimore on Sunday, got going and broke down again inside the Fort McHenry Tunnel. The bus got out of the tunnel and went to the side of the road, awaiting a replacement. This apparently was a sign. Villanova's offense broke down or was broken down by Georgetown last night at the Verizon Center. The Wildcats, so confident, so smooth and so in control for so long, were none of that against the Hoyas' swarming defense.

VILLANOVA'S women's basketball team did its best to outplay No. 15 Georgetown last night, but it was not enough as the Wildcats fell to the visiting Hoyas, 60-54. Villanova outshot the Hoyas from the field, 41.9 percent to 34.4, but Georgetown scored 20 points off 19 Wildcats turnovers, including 13 points off 11 first-half turnovers. The Wildcats also were hurt by going scoreless for the final 5 minutes, 15 seconds of the first half. Laura Sweeney led Villanova (15-11, 5-8 Big East)

VILLANOVA DIDN'T make it to the Final Four, but Saint Joseph's did. Jeff Clark, who played on the Hawks' team that went to the Elite Eight in 1981, is among the 10-man officiating crew that will work the national semifinals and final games. That '81 team went 25-8 under Jim Lynam, in his final year as coach. The Hawks lost to eventual national champion Indiana in the Mideast Regional final. Assistants included Jim Boyle, John Griffin and Brad Greenberg, who helped coach a squad that included Tony Costner, Bryan Warrick, Mark Dearborn and Lonnie McFarlan.

AS EXPECTED, Villanova (27-2, 14-2 Big East) has moved up two spots in the Associated Press (media) poll this week to fourth, behind Kentucky (29-0), Virginia (28-1) and Duke (26-3). The Wildcats, who have set a record for the best start in program history, won their 10th straight game Saturday at Xavier (18-12, 8-9), 78-66. They clinched the regular-season conference title for the second consecutive year. They were 12th in the preseason vote, and also made it to No. 4 on Jan. 19 before losing at Georgetown by 20. Two teams who were ahead of them, Gonzaga (29-2)

THE MADNESS is a little more palpable now, especially up on the Main Line, where Villanova has put itself in the conversation for a No. 1 seed. Gonzaga's loss to BYU on Saturday has opened things up a bit. And when the conference tournaments get rolling in another week or so, there are bound to be more upsets. So why is getting a No. 1 seed important? * Since 1985, 18 of the 30 national championships have been won by No. 1 seeds. Four No. 2 seeds have won it. * A No. 1 seed has never lost to a No. 16 in 120 meetings.

VILLANOVA WAS never in the game at Georgetown on Jan. 19. The Hoyas were never in the game at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday. The Wildcats shot it beautifully from the arc (12-for-24), defended the entire court, especially the arc (the Hoyas shot 30 percent overall, 1-for-17 from three) and won comfortably, 69-53. It was not the perfect game their 30-year ago predecessors played against the Patrick Ewing Hoyas in Rupp Arena on April 1, 1985, but, playing in throwback unis to honor that championship team, these Wildcats (21-2, 8-2 Big East)

A sold-out Wells Fargo Center will be occupied Saturday mostly by Villanova fans who presumably would like nothing better than to see their team gain a measure of revenge for the 20-point defeat Georgetown handed to the then-No. 4 Wildcats on Jan. 19 at the Verizon Center. Villanova coach Jay Wright, however, isn't into the revenge-as-motivation deal. He would rather see the now-No. 7 Wildcats (20-2 overall, 7-2 Big East) put together a complete game at both ends of the court when they take on the 24th-ranked Hoyas (15-7, 7-4)
