HERSHEY - Their song echoed through the corridors of the Hershey Giant Center, as they danced and skipped along, locked arm in arm with each other. If Seton-La Salle was walking toward an execution, the Rebels didn't look the part yesterday morning, as they approached the court for their PIAA Class AA girls state final against Neumann-Goretti. On the other side of the Giant Center, the walk through the halls was much different. The Neumann-Goretti girls were emotionless. Quiet.

University fund-raising campaigns often last years and start with a quiet phase. La Salle University's effort was to last a mere 24 hours and began with a rush. By 2 p.m. Thursday, 14 hours into its first-ever fund-raising blitz, the university had reached its goal and then some. "Donations are coming in so fast, it's tough to keep up," the university tweeted. "Last count, we've raised $38,818 from 373 donors!" The university's one-day drive, called "Lasallian Day of Giving: Spring La Salle Forward," had a goal of getting 320 people to contribute.

THERE IS NO one better than Joe Lunardi when it comes to predicting which teams will make the NCAA Tournament each year. The nation's one and only bracketologist correctly picked 67 of the 68 teams in this year's Big Dance. When he's not bracketologizing, Lunardi is the assistant vice president for marketing communication at Saint Joseph's University, where he even teaches a non-credit course in bracketology. He also "publishes" a weekly bracket on ESPN.com throughout the season.

EVERYTHING was coming undone for La Salle High School. Minutes earlier the Explorers held a commanding 11-point lead over Chester in the PIAA semifinals. Now, their lead was just three, and Chester had the ball off a La Salle turnover. Just when everything was going wrong, the Explorers' junior class stepped up and made it right. Najee Walls calmly stepped to the line and hit two free throws, then came up with a steal and a layup to seal last night's 61-54 win that gave the Explorers their first berth in the Class AAAA state championship against New Castle on Saturday at 8 p.m. in Hershey.

EVERYBODY AGREED that the 2012-13 season was going to be the best ever for the Atlantic 10. With recent Final Four participants VCU and Butler new to the conference and the tournament moving to the just-opened Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the league was poised to become even more of a national factor. When five teams (Saint Louis, VCU, Butler, Temple and La Salle) ended up in the NCAA Tournament, it was obvious that everybody was right. It was a great season for the league. Still, even as La Salle was set to play in the Sweet 16 as the final A-10 team alive, the storm clouds hovered over the league.

It was early on, after a turnover and missed rebound, that Dave Krmpotich was taken out of the game by La Salle coach Joe Dempsey. "We went over a couple of things," Dempsey said of Krmpotich's brief stay on the bench in Tuesday night's PIAA Class AAAA boys' basketball semifinal against Chester. "I just wanted to calm him down, get a message across. " Apparently, it worked. With the 6-foot-7 junior netting 19 points, the Explorers surprised the vaunted Clippers, 61-55, at Coatesville to secure their first berth in the state final.

IT WILL, says Bill Raftery, be his first Big 5 doubleheader ever. The 70-year-old analyst, who played for La Salle from 1961-64, is working his 32nd NCAA Tournament. He will join Verne Lundquist and sideline reporter Allie LaForce when CBS broadcasts tomorrow's Saint Joseph's-Connecticut and Villanova-Milwaukee games in Buffalo. "I've been in the Palestra and done games, and I once did a tripleheader there many, many years ago, but no teams from Philly played in it," Raftery said yesterday.

JOHN GIANNINI noticed the difference immediately. It was that striking. His La Salle team, with almost everything back from an unexpected Sweet 16 run, went to Villanova on Dec. 15. The Explorers lost by 21. And he knew why. "I think those guys had the best offseason in the country," Giannini reiterated yesterday at the annual Coaches vs. Cancer Tourney Tip-Off Breakfast at the Palestra. "I know they rave about their strength coach [second-year man John Shackleton]. I know they rave about their kids and their work ethic, and their leadership.

Up against a hungry St. Joseph's Prep team, La Salle boys' hockey squad followed the blueprint that served it so well over the years. Find a way to win. The third-seeded Explorers did just that Monday night as they came back from a 4-1 deficit and defeated No. 1 St. Joseph's Prep, 5-4, in overtime and won their fourth consecutive Class AAA Flyers Cup at the Skatium in Havertown. Coty Thomas scored his second goal of the game 3 minutes, 46 seconds into overtime to cap off an amazing Explorers comeback.
