They were bigger, faster and stronger. Black Hills (S.D.) State was everything Holy Family head coach Dan Williams thought it would be in the first round of the NAIA Division II men's national tournament in Nampa, Idaho. "A lot of people here are saying they have a real good chance to win the whole thing," Williams said last night after the Tigers were eliminated, 99-76, from the 32-team tournament. "They have outside power. They're tall inside and very athletic," Williams said.

Holy Family's 66-52 women's basketball win over Dominican College last night was the team's ninth victory of the season and the 300th of coach Mike McLaughlin's career. The 39-year-old Holy Family graduate has achieved the total in less than 11 seasons of coaching at his alma mater. McLaughlin is 300-49, including NCAA Division II competition and games played when the team was in the NAIA. "I credit the people who have been here," he said. Although McLaughlin reached No. 300 quickly, it took the Tigers almost all night to put away the opposition in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference game at the Campus Center in Northeast Philadelphia.

Danny Williams has coached a lot of basketball. High school. CYO. College. But until this season, his 12th in coaching and fourth at Holy Family College, he had never seen so many injuries. In fact, he said, he had not seen so many in the 11 previous years combined. Four of his players have been severely affected. Sophomore John Volz, a backup forward, has a herniated disk and will miss the entire season. Power forward Jim Schultice, a sophomore who made second-team all-Keystone Conference last year, also has a herniated disk.

A pair of Bishop McDevitt graduates, freshmen Mark Lanza and Tim Schorn, led the Holy Family men's soccer team to its first win of the season Sept. 13. "Both are playing real well, over expectations," Tigers coach Joe Stackhouse said. "A lot of people looked at me as if I were nuts to bring (freshmen) on, but Mark scored the winning point against West Chester and Tim scored the insurance point in the same game. They scored the second and third goals of our only win. They both have raw talent, they work real hard at practice, and they can be refined into real good players as we go along.

Holy Family's fourth straight trip to the NAIA Division II women's national basketball tournament was a short one.

The victory moved the Spartans (24-7) into the tournament's second round, while Holy Family's season ended with a 29-6 record.

The Holy Family men's basketball team gained strength this week, and so did its ties to North Catholic High School. North center-forward Jim Schultice, the most valuable player in the Catholic League Northern Division, told Holy Family coach Dan Williams on Monday that he would play for the Tigers next season. Williams also has received a commitment from North Catholic guard-forward Marc Alicea, bringing the number of Falcons on next year's Holy Family roster to five. The North Catholic connection extends beyond the players to Williams and assistant coach John Scanlon, who both coached at North before going to Holy Family.

Holy Family stormed into the Sweet 16 of the NAIA Division II women's basketball tournament yesterday with a record-breaking 82-35 triumph over St. Joseph's College of Standish, Maine, in Sioux City, Iowa. The win put the Tigers (32-3) into a second-round matchup tomorrow night against the winner of tonight's game between Cardinal Stritch (Wis.) and Albertson (Idaho). The 35 points by St. Joseph's were the fewest ever scored in a tournament game. Tri-State (Ind.) University had managed just 43 points in 1995.
