With Marquette struggling this season in the Big East, it has been easy for the public to overlook the exploits of sharpshooting lefthanded guard Matt Carlino. However, Villanova coach Jay Wright hasn't failed to notice Carlino, and he knows his defense will be tested Wednesday night when the seventh-ranked Wildcats (19-2, 6-2) welcome the Golden Eagles (10-11, 2-7) to the Wells Fargo Center. The 6-foot-2 Carlino went to Marquette for his final season of eligibility after spending three seasons at BYU, where he knocked down 157 three-point baskets.

STATE COLLEGE - For the first time in quite some time, Penn State basketball has more than just a pulse; it's an able-bodied citizen in the college basketball community.

Their outstanding record wouldn't be that way without one man lifting the Lions into college-hoops relevancy. A veteran, crafty guard from Strawberry Mansion High, senior D.J.

AFTER DROPPING four of its first five games this basketball season, against formidable opponents, and dealing with several injuries, Drexel needed a win. The Dragons have almost as many injured players on their bench (three) as healthy reserves (four). Since Southern Mississippi arrived at the Daskalakis Athletic Center yesterday carrying a 3-1 record and averaging 73.2 points per game, Drexel expected to have a stressful game. Wrong. The Golden Eagles must've left their hearts in Hattiesburg because Drexel rolled to a stress-free, 59-36 victory.

There are a few reasons why Gavin Bright has a knack for scoring goals. "He moves well off the ball, he's very athletic, and very good in the air," said Clearview soccer coach Dodd Terry. All three of those traits came into play when Bright scored career goal No. 50 in host No. 7 Clearview's 3-1 win over No. 10 Atlantic City in a South Jersey Group 4 first-round playoff game. Bright headed in a cross from a Quinn Grossman corner to reach the milestone. It was the seniors 13th goal the season.
