Taylor Watson was racing through her words Friday night. As with her style of play, the Seneca guard was trying in vain to keep her energy in check. She explained how much the Golden Eagles' 62-54 win over Ocean City in the South Jersey Group 3 semifinals had meant to her team, how every time the Golden Eagles were down this year, they would use the prospect of this matchup as motivation. Her teammates agreed: Ever since they were ousted by the Raiders in last year's postseason, a rematch has been on the their minds.

NEWARK, N.J. - During its nightmarish first half in the NCAA East Regional semifinals, Marquette had to be wondering how it could have traveled to North Jersey from Milwaukee without its shooting eye. North Carolina had no such problems finding the basket. The second-seeded Tar Heels scored 19 consecutive points during a period of more than 81/2 minutes in the first half while the No. 11 Golden Eagles struggled, and rolled to an 81-63 victory at the Prudential Center. After winning its 10th consecutive game in a regional semifinal, North Carolina (29-7)

When fans talk to Steve Novak, they always bring up one topic. They love to talk about the Golden Eagles' 94-79 upset over then-No. 2 Connecticut on Jan. 3, when Novak scored 41 points. As much as the memory is a fond one, Novak is trying to put it out of his mind. "If you dwell on it too long, it can come and hurt you," he said. Marquette (16-6, 6-3 Big East) and Novak say they are ready to move on to a new upset - trying to beat No. 4 Villanova (16-2, 7-1) this afternoon at the Pavilion.

Sinewy guard Dan Earl twisted down the lane for a layup, then followed it with a free throw with 41 seconds remaining in last night's National Invitation Tournament semifinal at Madison Square Garden, and it seemed that another inexplicable Penn State win was imminent. Apparently, though, the Nittany Lions had used up their allotment of miracle comebacks for one tourney. Despite a season-high 26 points by Earl and a 16-point first-half lead, Penn State couldn't keep up with Marquette's quicker hands, and the Golden Eagles won, 87-79, before a sparse crowd of 8,023.

No, coach Jay Wright insists, he has not magically transformed Villanova overnight from a controlled offense to a style that mostly resembles the run-and-gun days of Paul Westhead and Loyola Marymount. But the 13th-ranked Wildcats are in the middle of a scoring blizzard that is unprecedented for them in the Big East Conference. Last night, they ran from the opening tip and never slowed down, putting five players in double figures and defeating No. 10 Marquette, 102-84, at the Pavilion.

Sean Cassel can't bring himself to say that word. Even though his Seneca baseball team returned just one starter and a pitching staff that had logged all of four varsity innings entering the season, Cassel won't concede that this is a rebuilding year. Maybe this attitude explains how in a very short time, Seneca has launched itself into elite South Jersey baseball circles. The first varsity team competed in 2005. By 2007, the Golden Eagles had won the state Group 3 championship.

"Must-win" is a don't-say term around Villanova. The Wildcats (18-8 overall, 6-6 conference) refuse to talk about tonight's Big East game at No. 12 Marquette (21-7, 8-5) as a necessary victory, but it could determine their future. "I wouldn't say it's a must-win, but at the same time we want to win," senior Curtis Sumpter said. "We're not saying we've got to win this game to make it to the tournament. We want to win this game for us. The guys understand what we have to do. " Villanova missed an opportunity to stake a claim in the NCAA tournament on Saturday when it lost, 58-55, to No. 14 Georgetown.

CLEVELAND - Oh, is there ever a Buzz in the NCAA Tournament. Brent Williams is better known as Buzz - Coach Buzz if you play for Marquette - and his postgame celebrations have become the stuff of legend. Last night, he might have had his wildest yet. His bald head glistening with sweat, he leaped in the air, pounded his fists on tables, shared tears and hugs with his family. He saluted the fans, slapped hands with band members and anyone he could touch wearing the Golden Eagles' gold and blue.

Shortly into a phone conversation, Greg Bauer already was speaking of the confidence he has in first-year Seneca's wrestling team. "I believe in my guys," said Bauer, the Golden Eagles coach. "I always believe in my guys. " If Seneca continues to post victories, it will make believers among area wrestling fans. That's because the Golden Eagles have been one of this season's early surprises. After finishing third in the Haddonfield Invitational on Dec. 18, Seneca (2-0)

NEW YORK - If Villanova designed a blueprint for what it had to accomplish to win its first Big East tournament championship since 1995, the Wildcats couldn't have done it any better than they did Thursday against Marquette. The fourth-ranked Wildcats controlled their Big East quarterfinal game relatively early with amazing efficiency from three-point range and strong defense that kept the Golden Eagles off the scoreboard for nearly seven minutes, rolling to their 13th straight win, 84-49, at Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK - Barely 6 minutes into its quarterfinal game of the Big East Tournament yesterday, Villanova had built a double-digit lead over upset-minded Marquette. This was precisely the formula Jay Wright had preached to his top-seeded team beforehand, the easiest way to cut the legs from under a tired, upset-oriented team before adrenaline could do its magic. Defend the arc, where Marquette had lived the night before against Seton Hall. Rebound, make threes in transition. Gas them.

MILWAUKEE - Sixth-ranked Villanova competed Saturday against an undermanned Marquette team that had only six scholarship players available, and 'Nova spent two-plus hours playing one of its worst defensive games of the season. Fortunately for the Wildcats, they had enough offensively with five players scoring in double figures, and they emerged with an 87-76 win over the Golden Eagles at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, giving them a three-game lead in the Big East with four games remaining.

It has been quite an eventful February for Villanova's Ryan Arcidiacono, and we're not just talking about the fact that the sixth-ranked Wildcats are unbeaten for the month under the floor leadership of their junior point guard and that he reached a season high of 20 points against Providence. It hasn't been just filling a stat sheet, either. Most of the college basketball world has seen the tape of Arcidiacono's getting hit in the forehead by the lower right forearm of Seton Hall's Sterling Gibbs on Monday during a struggle for a loose ball in an 80-54 win for the Wildcats (24-2, 11-2 Big East)

In watching the first 81/2 minutes of Villanova's game Wednesday night against Marquette, one got the feeling that Jay Wright was channeling his inner Vince Lombardi, possibly saying from the bench, "What the hell is going on out here?" "At one point, I think they were up 6-4 when I was thinking, 'Man, we're lucky right now. This could be like 18-4,' " the Wildcats coach said. "But I thought our defense was good. " The defense stayed tough until the offense came around, and the combination propelled the seventh-ranked Cats to a 70-52 Big East Conference victory over Marquette before 13,313 at the Wells Fargo Center.
