THE FAN in the black jacket sitting in the first row behind the Illinois State bench was displaying admirable restraint. The fan was Sixers coach Doug Collins, an Illinois State graduate. "Obviously I'm an Illinois State alumnus, but Philadelphia is my home now," a smiling Collins said at halftime of Thursday night's game at Drexel. Collins is Illinois State's most illustrious basketball player. He was the Sixers' first-round draft choice in 1973. Illinois State's home court is named after Collins and his No. 20 is retired.

Two games. Two gut-wrenching overtime losses. This isn't the way Drexel coach James "Bruiser" Flint envisioned the season's start. The Dragons controlled the tempo against run-and-gun Illinois State for a good portion of their nonleague thriller Thursday night, but they couldn't make a key basket - or a stop - down the stretch as they dropped an 86-84 overtime decision at the sold-out Daskalakis Athletic Center. "You have to give them credit," Flint said. "They made the big plays when they needed them, and we didn't.

La Salle freshman forward Lionel Simmons, whose nose was broken when a sharp elbow hit him in Tuesday night's 89-81 victory over Niagara, is expected to start tonight when La Salle faces Illinois State in a quarterfinal National Invitation Tournament game at the Palestra (WSSJ-1310, 7:30 p.m.). Explorer coach Speedy Morris expects Simmons to start against the Redbirds (19-12), but said a final decision will be made closer to game time. Illinois State coach Bob Donewald said La Salle poses a threat of more good offensive shooters than either of ISU's two other opponents in the NIT. "This particular contest will probably be as difficult a challenge as we've had in the tournament," Donewald said.

DEVON KANE scored Villanova's, and the game's, final five points as the Wildcats scored a 58-55 win over Illinois State in a women's NIT game yesterday in Normal, Ill. With the Wildcats (19-14) trailing, 55-53, with 31 seconds to play, Kane missed a jumper, but Emily Leer's rebound set Kane up for a three-pointer that she hit with 23 seconds to play for a 56-55 lead. After Illinois State (19-13) missed a shot with 20 seconds to go, Villanova got the rebound. The Redbirds had to foul three times to finally get the Wildcats into the bonus, where Kane converted a one-and-one with 1 second on the clock.

IT'S NO SECRET that John Daly is a loser. Not as a human being, as some would have you believe. But as a gambler. Daly, appearing on "In Depth With Graham Bensinger" this week, recalled that he had lost between $55 million and $57 million while gambling between 1991-2007. That's not news. Daly wrote about his alcohol and gambling addictions in his 2006 book, "John Daly: My Life In and Out of the Rough. " What is news is that he apparently doesn't regret his behavior.

JUST ONE league starting Thursday and it's one of the better ones at the mid-major level. The Missouri Valley Conference coined its tournament "Arch Madness" because it takes place in St. Louis. It also frequently provides hair-raising action, such as last year when top-seeded Wichita State fell in the semifinals and Creighton won the championship in overtime. Missouri Valley Regular-season champ: Creighton, which had been ranked as high as 11th back in November, beat Wichita State on the final day of the regular season to claim its first outright crown since 2001.

NORMAL, Ill. - Guard Chris Fouch made a coast-to-coast, season-opening road trip feel a little shorter for Drexel. Fouch, a graduate student who was granted a sixth season by the NCAA for a medical hardship, paved the way by scoring a game-high 26 points Tuesday night in the Dragons' 78-70 victory over Illinois State at Redbird Arena. Fouch made amends for his 3-for-15 shooting performance in the season opener at UCLA on Friday. "That was a big motivator," Fouch said. "I don't like those bad shooting nights.

Sixers coach Collins knows adversity The Sixers were a wretched 9-73 in 1973, which earned them the very first pick in the NBA draft. On merit. They wound up with Doug Collins. But first they tried to swap him to Chicago. The deal unraveled because of X-rays. Not Doug's. Somebody else's. That was 40 years ago. Collins tells the melancholy story as only he can, names, places, numbers, all recalled with painful accuracy. He lived it, he learned from it, it shaped his core beliefs.
