A furious comeback was not enough to overcome a sluggish start Wednesday night as La Salle fell, 84-80, to visiting Hofstra, which earned coach Joe Mihalich his 300th win. Jordan Price led the Explorers with a career-high 37 points, including 24 in the second half, but the Explorers' supporting players couldn't muster enough offensive help. La Salle trailed, 50-33, with 17 minutes left before rallying. The Explorers (4-2) used a 10-2 run to get within 78-77, but Cleon Roberts missed a chance to tie the score, missing a free throw with 1 minute, 15 seconds remaining.

DOWN SIX points to visiting Hofstra with just over two minutes to play, La Salle's Jordan Price - the nation's fifth-leading scorer at 25 points per game - had that look in his eye; the look all great scorers have when they're in the zone. Price rejected a screen, took a step back and drained his sixth three of the game from the top of the key, prompting a timeout as the Pride clung to a three-point lead. When Hofstra's leading scorer, fifth-year senior Juan'ya Green, walked back to his bench, Pride coach Joe Mihalich smiled in Green's direction and offered some words of consolation to his best player.

CHRIS FERGUSON grew up No. 10 of 11 children in his family's Fort Washington household, so perhaps surviving in a brood that size taught him how to effectively wait his turn. The La Salle High senior quarterback has done just that during his tenure with the Explorers. The 6-4, 225-pounder played understudy for two seasons after Kyle Shurmur transferred in from Ohio three years ago. Before that, Ferguson was a freshman at Upper Dublin in competition with a talented quarterback whose father was also the head coach.

EASTON - Fran O'Hanlon and Steve Donahue coached for five years together at Penn and another year before that at Bonner. After they parlayed all that 1990s success at Penn under Fran Dunphy into what O'Hanlon jokingly called "the worst jobs in Division I at the time," O'Hanlon's Lafayette team played Donahue's Cornell team a few times and neither man was particularly comfortable. So they called it off. When Donahue got the Penn job last spring, he was hoping O'Hanlon would not want to continue Lafayette's long series with the Quakers.

The banner on the wall confirmed the location was Rowan University, but on Saturday afternoon it might as well have been Bizarro World. The voice of Dan Baker, typically heard at Phillies games, announced every score and substitution. An announced 1,150 fans crowded into every available crevice. And some of the loudest cheers from the sold-out crowd were reserved for the visiting coach. John Giannini brought La Salle to Rowan, the school at which he won a Division III title 20 seasons ago. His Explorers won, 81-51.

Following in the footsteps of his brothers, Cedric and Sameir, Syaire Madden was making a big mark in football at Springside Chestnut Hill. But the standout running back opted to transfer to La Salle before this school year. Continuing to give his new squad a major boost, Madden carried 19 times for 174 yards and two third-quarter touchdowns as the Explorers blasted Simon Gratz, 42-15, Saturday afternoon in the PIAA District 12 Class AAAA final at Northeast. "When I was in eighth grade, La Salle was one of the schools I considered," the 5-foot-8, 190-pound junior said.

The other day, Rowan University basketball coach Joe Cassidy sat on the team bus, crawling behind a school bus in Mullica Hill, his Profs headed for a game across the Commodore Barry Bridge. The coach talked on the phone about the play that changed everything. "Demetrius is two seats in front of me right now," Cassidy said over the phone. "Guess what we're talking about?" Cassidy shouted ahead to Poles, now a Rowan assistant. The play has everything to do with Saturday's big local hoop event, La Salle at Rowan.

Just like his former teammates at La Salle, Upper Dublin's Isaiah Henrich is enjoying a successful playoff run. And the possibility exists that he and the Cardinals could face the Explorers in two weeks. With his rugged play at offensive tackle and defensive end, Henrich helped Upper Dublin turn back Pennsbury, 24-14, in a PIAA District 1 Class AAAA semifinal playoff game Friday night in Fort Washington. "Those are still my brothers," the 6-foot-5, 240-pound senior lineman said of La Salle.

Darien Nelson-Henry has had some moments at Penn before. However, he's never had one like he did against La Salle on Wednesday night. Scoring in a variety of ways around the basket and with his midrange game, Penn's 6-foot-11 senior center had a career night for the Quakers at the Palestra, posting career highs in points (31) and rebounds (14) to help surprising Penn to an 80-64 rout of La Salle in the first Big Five game of the season. "I don't think any of us were happy about the way we played in the Washington game," Nelson-Henry said of the Quakers' 104-67 beating in their last outing.
