PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Miles Cartwright scored 25 points on 8-of-12 shooting, and he scored the final eight points of the game on free throws to help Penn beat Brown, 66-64, in an Ivy League contest Friday night. Patrick Lucas-Perry added 15 for the Quakers (9-20 overall, 6-6 Ivy). Trailing by 33-28 at halftime, Brown tied Penn at 46 on Sean McGonagill's four-point play with 12 minutes, 21 seconds left. The Bears (12-15, 6-7) held a 64-58 advantage on Matt Sullivan's three-pointer with 1:57 remaining but did not score again.

When Darnell Harris hit a three-point shot 15 seconds into La Salle's game last night, it was a sign of what was to come from the guard's torrid hand. The rout was on at Tom Gola Arena. Facing St. Bonaventure in an Atlantic Ten Conference matchup, the Explorers rode Harris to an 84-61 victory. Harris, who twice had scored 25 points this season, finished with 23 after an uncanny shooting exhibition in the first 20 minutes, when the 6-foot-1 senior went 7 for 7 from three-point range.

Midway through the fourth quarter of the Public League girls' championship game, public address announcer Alison Eachus abandoned the traditional call after each basket. Instead of saying the scorer's name, she simply said, "That's Sharnin again. " And again. And again. "Sharnin" is Sharnin Stokes, a 5-3 junior guard from Martin Luther King who scored 18 of the Cougars' 22 second-half points - including all 10 in the fourth quarter - en route to a convincing 57-47 win over University City yesterday at the Civic Center.

Just when it looked as if the Sixers might finally beat the Pistons, Detroit's Vinnie Johnson decides he can score again. Last season, Johnson averaged 13.8 points per game in the regular season and 12.6 in the playoffs. But this year, through Detroit's first 16 games, he had averaged only 7.4 points, his lowest output in eight years. That was until Wednesday, two days before the Pistons were to play the Sixers, when Johnson went out and scored 24 points in a win over Washington.

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands - Frantz Massenat scored a career-high 23 points, and Samme Givens added 12 points and seven rebounds to lead Drexel past Winthrop, 68-45, Monday in the seventh-place game of the Paradise Jam. Drexel, which had lost to Norfolk State and Virginia in its first two games of the tournament, shot 48 percent from the field (23 of 48), including a 52 percent clip (11 of 21) from three-point range. Massenat was 6 of 8 from behind the arc. "We did a better job of handling the ball, and we made some shots," said Drexel coach Bruiser Flint.

Texas A & M freshman DeAndre Jordan has been good on offense all season. Last night, he finally got it together on defense. Jordan had 14 points and eight rebounds, leading the 14th-ranked Aggies (10-1) to a 79-39 victory over Detroit. It was their third straight victory. "I thought DeAndre Jordan played his best game since he's been here," A & M coach Mark Turgeon said. Jordan, who leads the nation in field goal percentage, missed only the last of his eight shots. He is 46-of-58 (79.3 percent)

The rhythm, as it develops, carries his game beyond grace, to a level bordering on eerie. He begins to run with a different air, his eyes begin to glint. His jump shot, which looks as if it came directly out of a textbook anyway, seemingly jumps off the page. Zones, they say, are illegal in the NBA. But there is no rule to cover the sort of zone Hersey Hawkins found himself in last night as the 76ers literally blew past Orlando, 121-100. No defense, either. Hawkins scored a career-high 43 points by nailing 13 of 22 shots from the floor and 13 of 14 from the free throw line.

A basketball summary does not always tell the whole story, and in Germantown Academy's 74-51 nonleague win over host Girard College, it told only half the tale Tuesday. The summary did show that Chris O'Neill had a terrific afternoon shooting the basketball, as he made six 3-point field goals and scored a game-high 26 points. He shot a perfect 5 for 5 from 3-point range in the second period when GA broke the game open with 25 points. "I'm still amazed to think that Chris can shoot 5 for 5 in a quarter of basketball," GA coach Dave Hoch said.

Like the 76ers this season, Lou Williams has experienced some peaks and valleys. Right now, though, the Sixers' spark-plug reserve guard is at a peak: In the last three games entering last night, he was averaging 19.7 points, and in the last seven, he was making 40 percent of his shots. (He had shot 33.7 percent in his previous 18 games.) "We know it's going to be a long trip," Williams said before last night's game against the Sacramento Kings, the fourth stop of a five-game Western swing.

It's pretty safe to say that Randy Woods couldn't wait to get back into La Salle's starting lineup. In his initial start of the season, Woods came out hot, scoring 12 of his team's first 15 points to propel the Explorers to an easy 83-61 victory over Idaho yesterday in the final game of the Daiwa Ball Tournament. Woods, a junior guard from Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin High, hit three of his five three-point shots in the first four minutes in helping La Salle (5-1) take a 15-2 lead over the Vandals (4-4)

If you think Haddonfield plays tough defense on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, you should see the Bulldogs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. "Our practices are battles," coach Paul Wiedeman said. Haddonfield's depth and defensive diligence were the difference in a 53-38 victory over Wildwood Catholic on Saturday at the Jeff Coney Classic boys' basketball showcase at Rancocas Valley. Nick DePersia's hot hand helped, too. DePersia scored a season-high 25 points, making six three-pointers, as Haddonfield improved to 12-0.

Fifteen days of ballhandling drills. Fifteen days of wind sprints. Fifteen days of free throws, shooting drills, and defensive slides. According to junior Kate Skalski, that was the difference for St. Basil on Friday night, as the Panthers defeated Delco Christian, 47-28, to win the PIAA District 1 Class AA girls' basketball title at Villanova's Pavilion. Entering the final, the Panthers hadn't played a game in 15 days, and in that period spent a lot of time getting better, especially on defense.

Neither jet lag nor their overmatched opponents could stop Neumann-Goretti's Saints as they rolled into suburban Portland and rolled over Tigard (Ore.), 87-58, Wednesday in the first round of the Les Schwab Invitational. Junior guard Ja'Quan Newton kept his hot hand, scoring 27 points for the Saints, who did not let the locals gain an ounce of momentum. A 12-3 run in the second quarter was followed by a 13-0 stretch right after halftime, and Tigard fell by the wayside. On Thursday afternoon, Neumann-Goretti will face off against West Linn (Ore.)

BOSTON - It didn't matter that Tyreek Duren didn't score a point in the first half of Saturday night's game. The Atlantic 10 leading scorer's 12 second-half points were capped by the most important basket of the night, a game-winning runner with 1.4 seconds remaining to give La Salle a 66-64 victory over Northeastern. Northeastern (4-5) managed to get a highly contested (with some contact) shot up at the buzzer, but didn't convert. It was senior Ramon Galloway who took the reins for the Explorers (6-1)

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - For each of the last seven seasons, the routine for Penn State was to finish up the regular-season schedule and prepare for 15 practices during which coaches spent valuable time on the field teaching younger players before their bowl game. But nothing for the Nittany Lions this season has been routine. The Lions wrap up 2012 and honor the team's 30 seniors in what should be an emotional pregame ceremony Saturday against Wisconsin at Beaver Stadium. But then they will put the footballs away as a result of NCAA sanctions that will keep them out of postseason play for this year and the next three.

BATON ROUGE, La. - Maggie Lucas backpedaled with her shooting arm extended as her fourth three-pointer of the first half swished through, then she turned to trot back on defense while holding up three fingers on each hand. Penn State's leading scorer was well on her way to a memorable night, which meant trouble for LSU. Lucas scored 30 points, three short of a career high, and the fourth-seeded Lions moved on to the third round of the women's NCAA tournament with a 90-80 victory over No. 5 seed LSU on Tuesday night.

Cabrini learned some harsh lessons last year when it was bounced out of the NCAA Division III Men's Basketball Championship after reaching the Sweet 16, and the Cavaliers didn't want to feel that disappointment again. "We were just excited to be there last year," said senior guard Cory Lemons, the Cavaliers' best player and a second-team Division III all-American. "But this year it's more like, 'We've got to keep pushing.' " And push they did - all the way to the Final Four in Salem, Va., where Cabrini will take on Illinois Wesleyan on Friday night for a chance to play for the national championship.

KYLE SLAWTER almost posted a single double! Hey, don't laugh. Major stats are not easy to accumulate for members of Archbishop Ryan's ever-cautious basketball team and Slawter, a 6-foot, 160-pound senior, almost reached 10 last night in a Catholic League game not with points or even rebounds, but with . . . Assists. The crafty lefty is a point guard. As the Raiders pulled a 53-42 Catholic League surprise at Archbishop Carroll, Slawter dealt two assists apiece in the first, third and fourth quarters and three in the second.

Brittany Snow became just the second player in Seneca girls' basketball history to reach 1,000 points on Friday, when the senior forward poured in 26 in the first half of a 59-39 home win over Cherokee. Snow, who entered the Olympic Conference interdivision game nine points shy of the milestone, hit the mark in the first quarter and went on to add 10 rebounds. Johanna Metzger added 14 points, and Taylor Watson scored 10 in helping the Golden Eagles build a 38-17 halftime lead.
