ROMAN CATHOLIC point guard Tony Carr received an offer from Temple, he informed the Daily News yesterday. Carr, a rising junior for the Cahillites, also holds an offer from La Salle. Carr, currently ranked as a four-star prospect and a top-100 player in the nation by many scouting services, is a guard who can control the game's tempo, hit the perimeter shot and is developing as a scorer. With Rashann London moving on to Drexel from Roman, the 6-1, 160-pound Carr looks to make immediate impact next season in the Catholic League.

AS TIME SLOWLY ticked off the clock hanging on the wall adjacent to Amar Stukes, his nerves weren't getting any calmer. Stukes tried to go unnoticed in his 9 a.m. history class, his first ever at La Salle University last year during his redshirt freshman year. He sat quietly. He refused to raise his hand. And as the clock continued to tick, Stukes sat there, embarrassed and uncomfortable. With a year before he could touch a hardwood basketball court, before he could don his golden jersey and Explorers gear, he couldn't figure out how to stop shaking in class.

JOE PARISI was a senior at La Salle University, finishing up a practice teaching assignment at North Catholic when he was intercepted by then-baseball coach Larry Conti. "He said, 'What are you doing after school?' " Parisi recalled yesterday as he watched the Phillies in his office. "I said, 'Nothing.' He said, 'You're coaching JV baseball.' And that's how I started coaching. " Well, after 28 years as the head Explorer in charge at La Salle High, Parisi has decided to retire, citing a multitude of reasons.

ANN FORD's ambition was to see her two children get started on the kind of loving relationships that she had enjoyed in her own 34-year marriage. Her children, Sarah and Kenneth, had weddings scheduled for this month and in August. Ann, suffering from terminal cancer, was told she would never live to see either happen. But you don't want to bet against a mother's love and determination. When Sarah married Thomas Leonard on June 14 at St. Francis Xavier Church in Fairmount, her mother was there - not in person, but she was able to watch the proceedings on an iPad and was certainly there in spirit.

MULTIPURPOSE PLAYER Dom Cuoci LA SALLE Joe Parisi has had some exceptional two-way position players in his 28 seasons as La Salle baseball coach. For what he accomplished as an infielder and a righthanded pitcher, Dom Cuoci is right up there with the best, if not at the top of the list. Cuoci, a senior who doubled as a third baseman, went 9-1 with a 1.88 ERA and 62 strikeouts in 702/3 innings this season for the Explorers. From the cleanup position, the St, Joseph's recruit batted .359 (23 for 64)

"Not No. 2, not No. 3, not No. 4, not No. 5 . . . No. 1, baby!" That's what senior outfielder Grant Latran shouted while he and his Devon Prep baseball teammates accepted their first-place medals Friday night at Penn State's Medlar Park at Lubrano Field. With a dramatic finish, the Tide nipped previously undefeated Elk County Catholic, 2-1, to capture their first PIAA Class A state championship. The winning run came in the bottom of the ninth inning, with Chris Bauers stealing third base and, after the throw from home got past Elk County Catholic's third baseman, popping up and dashing to the plate.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Twenty-seven days. That's how long it took La Salle's baseball team to go from being on the brink of season extinction to holding aloft a state-championship trophy for the second time in three years. The Explorers, after overcoming two Catholic League playoff losses last month, showed some more resiliency Friday afternoon while beating Conestoga, 4-2, in eight innings for the PIAA Class AAAA title at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. After ace Dom Cuoci escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning, Brian Buckley produced the winning hit, a two-run single past a drawn-in infield, on an 0-2 pitch in the eighth.

STATE COLLEGE - One day, he's driving home the game-winning runs in the Class AAAA state championship game and the next, La Salle High junior Brian Buckley is headed to the United States Military Academy at West Point to learn about life as a cadet. As far as fulfilling goals and realizing dreams go, Buckley won the weekend. The 6-foot, 208-pound Huntingdon Valley resident, sprayed a liner up the middle with the bases loaded in yesterday's eighth inning, plating two runs and pushing the Explorers toward a 4-2 triumph over feisty Conestoga at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
