PITTSBURGH - With all the problems Lafayette had to deal with, stone walls around the inside, that grab bag of Villanova shooters around the perimeter - another one appeared at the scorer's table, making it practically a pile-on. Villanova's eighth player to check in, a guy who played less than all the others in Thursday's first half of their NCAA East Regional opener, was the one who took care of things for good. One moment, Lafayette fans who had filled Section 111 of the Consol Energy Center almost as soon as the doors opened were looking at a best-case scenario, their Leopards practically sticking around.

Villanova returned Sunday from the Bahamas with the championship trophy from the Battle 4 Atlantis and increased confidence that it will contend in the Big East, and perhaps nationally. Thanks to victories over second-ranked Kansas in the semifinals and No. 23 Iowa in Saturday night's title game, the Wildcats (7-0) could become the conference's highest-ranked team when the latest Associated Press top 25 poll is released on Monday. But while he reveled in watching his players celebrate on the floor at the Atlantis Casino Resort in Paradise Island, Jay Wright provided some perspective.

LA SALLE High junior guard Amar Stukes has signed a national letter of intent to play for La Salle University. Stukes, 6-1, averaged 13.4 points as a junior and made first-team All-Catholic League.

Villanova basketball coach Jay Wright has a pleasant problem - finding more minutes for two freshman rotation players, 6-foot-5 guard Josh Hart and 6-6 forward Kris Jenkins. Hart is averaging 9.9 points and 4.7 rebounds in 22.6 minutes a game. Jenkins gave the Wildcats the lead for good with a three-pointer in Saturday's 74-67 win over St. John's. He is averaging 3.9 points and 2.2 rebounds in 11.6 minutes. "I am looking to get them time because they have earned it and deserve it," Wright said.

VILLANOVA'S basketball program has received its first verbal commitment for the Class of 2013. Kris Jenkins, a 6-5, 250-pound power forward from Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C., broke the news Sunday afternoon on a radio show down there. He didn't play much in this summer's AAU circuit after suffering a broken left pinkie finger, after averaging almost 20 points and 18 rebounds last season. He's rated the 63rd-best player in the country by Rivals.com and the 18th best at his position by Scout.com.

The rules said that 12th-ranked Villanova had to play 40 minutes of basketball Monday night against Maryland-Eastern Shore, even though the Legends Classic first-round game ceased being competitive well before halftime. So Wildcats coach Jay Wright worked on different things on offense and defense and made sure he gave everyone in his regular nine-man rotation plenty of playing time. One of them was 6-foot-6 sophomore forward Kris Jenkins, who played 20 minutes and posted team highs of 15 points and four steals in the Wildcats' 81-44 victory over the Hawks at the Pavilion.

The Carolina Panthers signed All-Pro defensive tackle Kris Jenkins to a 5-year, $31 million contract extension yesterday, a deal that locks up their starting defensive line through at least 2007. Jenkins received a $9.175 million signing bonus in the deal that keeps him in Carolina through 2009. He is considered one of the cornerstones of Carolina's defense, which ranked second in the NFL last season. Defensive end Julius Peppers, the other cornerstone, is signed through 2008. Defensive end Mike Rucker and defensive tackle Brentson Buckner are both signed through 2007.

You'd think that tomorrow night in Philadelphia, free of this stuffy Bible Belt city that is their home, some of the grown men - the very grown men - on the Carolina Panthers' defensive line would have something splashy planned. Maybe spend the night before Sunday's NFC championship matchup with the Eagles having dinner at Le Bec Fin. Perhaps a limo run to Atlantic City. Or nightcaps at the Swann Lounge. No, most of the members of the Panthers' front four, generally considered to be the NFL's best, if no longer its wildest, probably will be playing video football, "Madden NFL 2004," on a Center City hotel-room TV. "That's what you need to be a close-knit group," said Brentson Buckner, the defensive tackle who is the group's oldest and loudest member.

All news seems to be bad news for the Carolina Panthers these days, and yesterday's news was the worst of all. Already besieged by injuries, the Panthers learned that they had lost all-pro defensive tackle Kris Jenkins for the season because of a shoulder injury that had hampered him since their Week 2 victory at Kansas City. The Eagles consider Jenkins the best defensive tackle in the league. Guard Artis Hicks would have been assigned to block Jenkins when the Eagles play the Panthers on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, but he will now block Kindal Moorehead, a second-year player out of Alabama.

CINCINNATI - Before the first whistle even sounded Saturday in the Cintas Center, Villanova officially had captured the Big East Conference regular-season championship. But the sixth-ranked Wildcats wanted to put an exclamation point on the achievement against Xavier. The Cats stunned the excited sellout crowd of 10,250 in the second half by rallying from a nine-point deficit, limiting the Musketeers to one three-point basket and 32-percent shooting, and rolling to a 78-66 victory, their 10th consecutive win. The Wildcats (27-2, 14-2 Big East)

NEW YORK - Villanova discovered Monday night how much easier the game of basketball can be when you make shots. The 12th-ranked Wildcats entered the Legends Classic semifinal against No. 14 Virginia Commonwealth hitting just 26 percent of their three-point attempts. But they found their shooting stroke from deep in the second half and rolled to a 77-53 victory over the Rams at the Barclays Center. Villanova (4-0) advanced to the championship game Tuesday night against No. 19 Michigan, a 70-63 winner over Oregon.

IT BECAME clearly evident very early last night that Maryland-Eastern Shore wasn't another Lehigh. On Friday, the Mountain Hawks led 12th-ranked Villanova by five with 14 minutes to go in Allentown before reality took over. This time, there would be no such issues at the Pavilion. These Hawks (0-2), who lost every starter from a team that won six games in the MEAC, have a new coach in Bobby Collins, who spent the last eight seasons at Winston-Salem (and four at Hampton before that)

Villanova coach Jay Wright was the perfect host to his former boss, Rollie Massimino, and members of the Wildcats' 1985 national championship team Tuesday night at the Pavilion until the ball went up for the opening tip against Massimino's Northwood team. Once that happened, Wright intently studied his 12th-ranked Wildcats and yelled at his players and corrected them just as if it had been a regular-season Big East game. One of the questions Wright considered through the preseason was who would be his fifth starter.

BUFFALO - Villanova came out for its first game in the 2014 NCAA tournament with the type of ragged offense that promised to make its contest against 15th-seeded Wisconsin-Milwaukee a far more dramatic event that the Wildcats would like. But the second-seeded Wildcats showed a better shooting eye Thursday night in the second half - at least from inside the three-point line - and won going away, 73-53, over the Panthers in the NCAA East Regional at First Niagara Center.

BUFFALO - Josh Hart and Kris Jenkins got to know each other playing high school and AAU basketball in the Washington area. Jenkins committed first to Villanova and persuaded Hart to join him, and the pair embarked on a freshman year trying to fit in on a team that figured to be pretty good. Well, the Wildcats exceeded "pretty good," rising to No. 3 in the national rankings and earning a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament. They enter their opening East Regional game Thursday night against No. 15 seed Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a 28-4 record.

VILLANOVA HAS been playing basketball since way before Rollie Massimino's guys pulled off their magical national-title ride. In all that time, only twice before this season have the Wildcats won 22 of their first 24 games. Both were in the last decade. The 2005-06 team would go on to earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and make it to the Elite Eight before being eliminated by eventual champion Florida. Four seasons later, coming off their first Final Four appearance since the epic 1985 run, the Wildcats would be upset in the second round of the NCAA Tournament as a second seed.
