St. Joseph's Prep senior Joe Nardi was thinking of trying to be a walk-on basketball player at St. Joseph's University. That plan changed after John Gallagher was hired last month as coach at the University of Hartford. Gallagher touched base with Prep coach Speedy Morris, who was head coach at La Salle University when Gallagher was there as an assistant, and Morris passed along Nardi's name as a potential recruit. Gallagher soon made a scholarship offer, and Nardi, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound guard and long-range sniper, readily accepted.

Pittsburgh forward Jaromir Jagr seems to be developing an affinity for scoring the winning goal against Hartford. He did it for the second time this season yesterday, breaking free to score the deciding goal in a 3-2 victory over the host Whalers. The game was clinched in the third period when Jagr gathered in a pass from Larry Murphy. Jagr, who never really had control of the puck, made a great move near the net, faking Whalers goalie Jeff Reese and backhanding home the game-winner with 5:07 left.

In addition to Russell at 130, Hartford had another player, Anthony Vecchiarelli (69)

Will Cummings has been the main catalyst for Temple's turnaround season and the senior point guard has been rewarded for his performance. To no one's surprise, Cummings was named to the first team on the all-American Athletic Conference team, which was voted on by the league's 11 coaches. Temple junior forward Jaylen Bond was an honorable mention selection. Even though Cummings' focus is on Friday's AAC tournament quarterfinal against Memphis at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn., he was naturally gratified to earn this honor.

LA SALLE had 8 days to digest a disappointing trip to the Paradise Jam in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Coming off consecutive losses to Providence and Northern Iowa in the tournament, the Explorers had little margin for error last night against Hartford. The Explorers used a big run in the second half to pull away from Hartford, 75-62, to improve to 4-4. "I thought we really competed defensively," Explorers coach John Giannini said. "We had guys play more the way we are used to seeing them play, more the way we want to see them play.

By midway through the second half of La Salle's 75-62 win over Hartford, the backs of the two folding chairs belonging to John Giannini had both been knocked askew. Their state was a testament to the number of times the La Salle coach had abruptly risen from his seat or plopped down in a hurry. But even for the typically fretful Giannini, there was little to worry about Wednesday night, at least on the scoreboard at Tom Gola Arena. The struggling Explorers (4-4) found an opponent in Hartford (2-7)

BOY, I SURE know how to pick 'em - cities, not men. Although if those cities were men, they'd apparently be a couple of big ol' hairy losers. Both Hartford, Conn., whence I came, and Philly made a recent top-10 list of the worst places to live, in part because of their "general malaise that seems to infect the entire population. " Did I not tell you that the Philly Shrug was going to bite us on the . . . well, you know. (Hartford was No. 2, Philly was No. 6. Detroit was No. 3.)
