ATLANTA - Villanova scored on runs, a pass, a punt return and an interception return just in the first half, as the No. 24 Wildcats poured it on Georgia State en route to a 49-24 win. The backbreakers came just 18 seconds apart. Coming out of a Georgia State field goal that got the Panthers (1-7) on the board at 21-3, Villanova marched 66 yards, and Kevin Monangai capped it off with a 12-yard touchdown run that put the Wildcats (6-2, 4-1 CAA) up 28-3. Then, on the first play of the ensuing possession, Eric Loper intercepted Georgia State quarterback Ben McLane and returned it 32 yards for a touchdown that put it out of reach by halftime.

If you come to the DAC expecting to see aesthetically pleasing basketball, you have come to the wrong place. Drexel, under Bruiser Flint, is about defense first, last and always. Still, a few hoops never hurt anybody. Drexel and Georgia State needed a late first-half run to avoid setting a record for the fewest points in a half since 1986, the advent of the shot clock. The three-point shot came the next year. They got to 31 very late, three more than the "record" set 8 years ago by Mississippi 15-South Carolina 13 at the half.

A visit by Georgia State is just what the Drexel basketball team needed. The Dragons had lost three games in a row, by a combined 11 points, including one at the buzzer and another in overtime. Last night, they stopped their skid.

Georgia State fell to 4-11, 2-6. "This was a big plus for us," said Dragons center Chazz Crawford, who finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Tennessee's displeasure with its seeding in the Women's NCAA Tournament has been well documented already. It's matched by that of the Lady Vols' first-round opponent. Sixth-ranked Tennessee (25-4), seeded second in the Midwest Regional, plays No. 15 seed Georgia State today. Georgia State coach Lea Henry played at Tennessee for coach Pat Summitt and, like her mentor, expected more favorable treatment from the NCAA committee. "We are upset, because we thought that there were a lot of teams in the NCAA field that had a lower RPI than us," she said.

Senior forward Paul Hendricks scored 22 points to lead Boston University to a 105-75 romp over Drexel last night in the first round of the IPTAY Tournament at Littlejohn Coliseum. The game was the season opener for both teams. Host Clemson defeated Georgia State, 108-91, in the first game of the doubleheader and will meet BU in tonight's 8 p.m. final. Drexel will meet Georgia State in the 6 p.m. consolation game. Hendricks paced five Terriers in double figures. He racked up 11 points in a first half that saw BU break away from a 12-12 tie with an 11-2 surge.
