At some point Saturday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field, former Rancocas Valley High School running back Carlton Koonce will exchange pleasantries with Temple players such as offensive lineman Eric Lofton and Raymond Korang, who, like Koonce, played at the Lumberton school. But that will be only after Koonce and his Fordham (2-0) teammates have done everything in their power to upend the Owls (0-2). Last week against Villanova, the Football Championship Subdivision Rams forced the then-No.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - A Hofstra University junior sharing an off-campus house with her twin sister and several other college students was shot and killed during an early morning break-in Friday that also left the armed intruder dead, police said. The shooting at a private house only steps from the Long Island campus cast a pall over the university community gearing up for commencement this weekend. Hofstra's president said in a statement that the ceremonies would go ahead. It wasn't clear who fired the fatal shots or how many rounds were fired, but authorities said police were involved in the shooting, which happened about 2:30 a.m. A weapon was found inside the house, police said.

JOE MIHALICH is leaving behind 15 successful seasons at Niagara to take over Hofstra's troubled men's basketball program.

He replaces Mo Cassara, who was fired March 22 following a 7-25 season. Four Pride players were arrested in November on burglary charges stemming from dormitory room break-ins. Hofstra lands an established coach and respected recruiter in Mihalich, who played a big role in reviving the Purple Eagles' proud tradition.

A ROBERT MORRIS internal investigation into former basketball coach Mike Rice found no evidence of the "coaches against player" brawls alleged by an ex-Rutgers employee, though one former Colonial contacted by the school claims Rice used anti-gay slurs on several occasions and engaged in a shoving match with a player during halftime of a game. Rice coached at the suburban Pittsburgh school from 2007-10 before taking the job at Rutgers, who fired Rice last week after video of the coach physically and emotionally abusing players became public.

In a basketball game that could have been put away in the first half, Drexel needed much longer before finally settling matters. Leading by 33-23 at halftime, the Dragons saw Hofstra pull within five points with less than eight minutes remaining before scoring a 63-54 win Monday in a Colonial Athletic Association game at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. Drexel is 11-15 overall and 7-7 in the CAA. Hofstra fell to 6-21, 3-11. Damion Lee scored 17 points for Drexel while Frantz Massenat added 16 and Derrick Thomas 11. Thomas has scored in double figures in six consecutive games.

MID-FEBRUARY Monday nights at the Daskalakis Athletic Center were going to be special this season. It has not turned out that way. Still, in this off-the-rails journey, just about any win is a good win. Drexel found an opponent whose season went even worse than the Dragons', without the expectations. Four Hofstra players, including two starters, were charged with a series of dorm-room burglaries after their seventh game. All were suspended and have not played since. So there is always another side.
