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)

Seneca's Tyver Butler had spent a bit of time as a midfielder before high school, and he had a cup of coffee at the position as a sophomore. By nature, though, he's an attack. So his display over the last three games after switching to center midfield late in his senior season - 10 goals, including four in a 13-3 win over visiting Bishop Eustace on Friday night - is as much a testament to his guts as it is to his athleticism. "He actually came to me about this," said Seneca coach Rob Davidson.

When the ball left the bat, Jack Herman was sure it was over his head. So was everybody else. "I didn't think he could get to it," Eastern catcher Tyler Travis said of his teammate, the Vikings' sophomore centerfielder. "No way," Seneca coach Jay Donoghue said. With Eastern clinging to a one-run lead in the fifth inning, Herman made the defensive play of the game, tracking down Zach Evans' blast to dead center field with a running, lunging grab. Herman made an impact at the plate as well, going 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBIs as Eastern scored a 7-4 victory over Seneca Thursday in an Olympic Conference interdivision clash of Top 20 teams.

MY TOP four NCAA Tournament seeds if the selections were today. East: Villanova South: Michigan State Midwest: Kansas West: Virginia Assuming Villanova wins its final regular-season games this week, on campus against DePaul (9-19) and at the Wells Fargo Center against Georgetown (14-15), I think it is going to be very difficult to keep them out of the East's No. 1 seed regardless of what goes down in the Big East Tournament.

MILWAUKEE - The concern for Villanova coach Jay Wright when his team arrived Saturday for its game against Marquette was making sure that there was no hangover from the Wildcats' loss to Xavier, that they were completely focused on the speedy and scrappy Golden Eagles. The top-ranked Wildcats allayed his concerns. They got off to a hot start, shot 57.7 percent from the field, placed four players in double figures, and shrugged off 17 turnovers in an 89-79 Big East victory before a crowd of 19,043 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Northern Burlington's Kacie Walton led all scorers with 17 points.

It was one of those strange games Wednesday night at the Pavilion where it looked as if Villanova wasn't going to have a battle on its hands against a young Marquette squad, and then suddenly had one. The sixth-ranked Wildcats blew a 16-point lead in the first half and trailed by one at the break. They spurted out to a 19-point margin in the second half but needed to be precise from the free-throw line in the final three minutes to gain an 83-68 victory over the Golden Eagles at the Pavilion.

Classmates, teammates and standout inside linebackers for the Seneca football team, Sam Pawlikowski and Frankie Caterina have much more in common than most high school seniors. "He even works at my father's restaurant," Caterina said. Said Pawlikowski: "The kid [Caterina] is my best friend. " That connection works wonders on the football field, especially when the duo is trying to help the Seneca defense shut down an opposing offense. "If he doesn't get there, I'll get there," Caterina said.
