DAYTON, Ohio - As the wiseacre kid in "Risky Business" kept saying, sometimes you just have to say what the hell (liberal translation). Harold Jensen set himself on the right wing of Villanova's spread offense, score tied, 49-49, 1:10 remaining against Dayton on Dayton's homecourt in the first round of the NCAA Southeast Regional. Which, if the business got too risky, would merely be the final collegiate game for three-fifths of the Wildcats' starting lineup. "I turned," Jensen said.

Bruiser Flint, his eyes watery, had just come from shaking the hand of Villanova senior Harold Jensen. "I think he knows how we're feeling over here," said Flint, St. Joe's senior point guard, moments after Villanova's 88-87 double-overtime heart- pounder last night at the Palestra. "He's a good guy. We've had some wars the last four years, but tonight . . . I'll never forget this one. Tonight topped them all. " The 8,722 fans at the Palestra were saying the same about Flint's performance down the stretch last night.

The Utah Jazz beefed up their front line yesterday by adding centers Darryl Dawkins and Mel Turpin in a seven-player trade that also involved the Cleveland Cavaliers and New Jersey Nets. The complicated player shuffle began with New Jersey sending Dawkins, a former 76er, and forward James Bailey to Cleveland in exchange for guard John Bagley and forward Keith Lee. The Cavaliers then sent Dawkins and Turpin to Utah for backup center Kent Benson and reserve guard Dell Curry. The transaction leaves the Jazz with two veteran centers behind 7-4 Mark Eaton and is expected to provide inside scoring, Utah president and general manager Dave Checketts said.

The Villanova basketball team learned last night that looks can be deceiving. St. Francis (Pa.) came into the duPont Pavilion still smarting from a 39- point drubbing at the hands of Pitt last Wednesday night and appeared ready to assume the sacrificial-lamb role for a Big East team once again. But someone forgot to read the script. Even after Villanova took a 23-point lead midway through the second half, the visitors from Loretto, Pa., never quit, and the Wildcats had to work hard the rest of the way to grab an 80-64 victory before a sellout crowd of 6,500.

For all of his freshman year and the first four games of this season, Greg Woodard has been trying hard - perhaps too hard - to become the next Harold Jensen at Villanova. But last night, the Wildcats' 6-foot-6 sophomore played like the zonebuster he has been touted to be, hitting consistently from outside and scoring 16 points to lift Villanova to a 76-60 victory over Vermont before a sellout crowd of 6,500 at duPont Pavilion. Woodard, who came into the game only 7 of 28 from the field (25 percent)

It's been 25 years, but midnight still hasn't struck for Rollie Massimino's Cinderella 1985 Villanova basketball team. The NCAA championship squad was honored during halftime of the Wildcats' 68-66 overtime loss to visiting West Virginia yesterday, and the Wachovia Center crowd gave the champions a hero's welcome. The Wildcats, an eighth seed in that memorable '85 tournament, upset No. 1 seed Michigan and No. 2 seed North Carolina en route to their meeting with defending-champion Georgetown in the final.

Even before Gary McLain's story on his drug use at Villanova was made known to Rollie Massimino, the coach said the speculation of the last several days had hurt him. On his weekly radio show last night, Massimino, referring to the speculation that McLain had written a story for Sports Illustrated about his drug problems, said, "I am crushed. I really, really am. But I can't be with Gary McLain, Ed Pinckney, Harold Pressley, Harold Jensen 24 hours a day. Neither can I be with (sons)

Villanova "went small" the entire second half last night and came up gigantic. After the Wildcats rallied from 14 points down to topple upset-minded George Mason University, 82-79, at Patriot Center, a Virginian who might call himself a member of the media actually asked Rollie Massimino which five players he was identifying as his "small" lineup. It was proof that some people only notice the whats, not the hows. Massimino, bless him, spared the man further embarrassment.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - With all the dire predictions of what mighty, misanthropic Georgetown was supposed to do to Villanova, the date had been forgotten. It was as if everyone was so eager to be done with the ugly business of an NCAA championship execution that the page on the calendar had already been flipped. The only problem was, no one imagined that John Thompson and his Hoya horde could be disposed of as easily. But now something was happening on Rupp Arena's court, and it had nothing to do with them.

Looking at photographs, there's a sure-fire way to prove that Villanova's 1985 NCAA championship-game victory over Georgetown was from a different time - the shorts, those thigh-exposing anti-fashion statements, which stayed in the locker after games and practices. "We were not parading around in those, that's for sure," said Harold Jensen, a star of that '85 title game for Villanova. These days, anyone can go online to buy a replica of Villanova's current "double-layered mesh" basketball shorts with a 23-inch out-seam ($27.

Talking about that night at Rupp Arena, a lot of memories float through, "little things," Harold Jensen said - huddling during late time-outs, feeling "so determined, so confident. " Walking over to kiss dying trainer Jake Nevin on his head in the final seconds. Getting the basketball inbounds to Dwayne McClain at the very end. The score of the 1985 NCAA title game hasn't changed - Villanova 66, Georgetown 64 - so 24 years out, the guy who took five shots in "The Perfect Game" and made them all still gets "Aren't you . . .?"

NEW YORK - Lou Carnesecca knows this town can't wait to start beating the drums for another Georgetown-St. John's rematch. But the Redmen's colorful coach was too tired to start hyping tonight's 7 o'clock Big East Conference Tournament championship game at sold-out Madison Square Garden. "This is what you all wanted," he said to the assembled media after St. John's advanced to the final last night with an 89-74 win over Villanova. "What else do you want? I'm anxious to see it, too. But first, I want to go home and get some sleep.

We want to play one more night to show that Villanova can hold its own with anyone in the country.

  LEXINGTON, Ky. - They came to watch a coronation. What they saw was a palace revolt. Yes, Villanova, a team that no one thought had much of a chance to beat mighty Georgetown, is the national champion today. The Wildcats (25-10) earned that title by stunning the top-ranked Hoyas (35-3), 66-64, last night in front of a sellout crowd of 23,124 in the NCAA championship game at Rupp Arena. "In the country, I don't think there were more than five people out of 250 million who would have said, 'Villanova's going to win tonight,' " sophomore guard Harold Jensen said.
