The Holy Family women's basketball team lost a heartbreaker to top seed Bentley, 84-73, in the Division II East Regional championship game in Waltham, Mass., Monday night. The sixth-seeded Tigers led by as many as 12 points early in the game only to falter to a determined Falcons squad, which broke through in the second half. The Tigers closed the gap to two points late in the game and then went cold. Bentley (30-3) took a 76-71 lead with two minutes to play and controlled the action the rest of the way. Holy Family, trying to play catch-up, got caught in a cycle of missed shots and forced fouls.

Delaware sensation Elena Delle Donne broke free from Drexel's stiffing defense in the second half and lifted the seventh-ranked Blue Hens to a 59-43 victory over the Dragons yesterday afternoon for their first Colonial Athletic Association championship. Held to just eight points in the first 20 minutes, the 6-5 versatile Delle Donne finished with 27, a few decimal points below her NCAA-leading scoring average to earn the most outstanding player award for the tournament at the Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, Md. The win gave the Blue Hens (30-1)

There is one thing that the Holy Family women's basketball team has in common with the Cabrini men's basketball team and that is knowing when to go on a winning run. The Division II Tigers (26-7) won their 13th straight game on Saturday with a 71-61 victory over Southern Connecticut State in the East Region semifinals in Waltham, Mass. And the Division III Cavaliers (30-1) extended their winning streak to 21 games with a 78-58 victory over Scranton in the Elite Eight played in Middlebury, Vt. It was Cabrini's first appearance ever in the Elite Eight.

Getting to the school in a remote Tanzanian village meant 22 hours of travel, including three plane rides and an exceedingly bumpy, four-hour Jeep trek. But Sister Francesca Onley, the 79-year-old president of Holy Family University, is glad she made the trip. With money from a United Nations organization, Holy Family teamed with a Stanford University professor to give handheld learning computers and phones to teenagers who live in impoverished conditions who had little previous experience with technology.

TWO DECADES after calling it a career, Tim Kerr still holds the Flyers' record for 50-goal seasons (four straight, starting in 1983-84), and the NHL mark for power-play goals in one season (34, in 1985-86). Skill obviously had a bunch to do with that. But it was as much about the way did his job. Most of the time, he planted himself in front of the net looking to make something happen, a style that came with certain physical consequences. There's a reason he once had five shoulder surgeries in a 14-month period.

HOLY FAMILY guard Ben Badeen did not play in the game against Chestnut Hill earlier this month, but he definitely contributed to the victory. The Tigers play a 2-3 zone, similar to the defense Syracuse uses. They are sometimes vulnerable to teams that use big men in the high post. Badeen found video of Chestnut Hill College online and relayed valuable information to his coaches. The scouting report helped HFU win the game, 70-67. Badeen, a deep sub, is probably the easiest guy to spot in the Holy Family layup line because of his height.
