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)
