ON PAPER, La Salle was due for another blowout loss Wednesday night. Losers of 10 straight games - all by double digits - and 17 of 18 overall, the Explorers faced a St. Bonaventure squad that had won five straight, was 17-6 overall and on the NCAA Tournament bubble. Good thing for the Explorers that the game was played on wood inside Tom Gola Arena. Somehow, the Explorers overcame their 17 turnovers (to just 11 for the Bonnies), a 4-minute, 59-second stretch midway through the second half in which they didn't score a basket, and still came away with an impressive, 71-64 Atlantic 10 win. "Obviously we beat a very good team who's been playing very well and we gave a great effort," La Salle coach John Giannini said.

ISSUE | COLLEGE SPORTS Odd La Salle choice Whatever happened to the classic reason for going to a college or university? Have we lost sight of the fact that we might get an education along the way? It is disconcerting that La Salle thinks the solution to its education issues lies in adding a couple of sports ("La Salle adds 2 sports to boost enrollment," Saturday). Also perplexing is that only a few area colleges have varsity teams playing women's golf and men's and women's water polo.

After nearly two decades at La Salle, what Tom Brennan cherishes most are the relationships. "For me, working in athletics, it's always been an opportunity to make a difference," he said on Monday, after the university announced that he will no longer be its Athletic Director once the basketball season is over. "On one level you help transform the lives of students. You get to connect with lots of different stakeholders, as we call them. And that's what's really rewarding, to be in that kind of a position.

St. Joseph's, which has lost once since Jan. 5, is trying to get into the NCAA tournament. La Salle, which has won once since Thanksgiving, is just trying salvage anything out of a forgettable season while it awaits the arrival of three promising transfers who had to sit out a year. But when Big Five teams get together, well, history tells us that sometimes you never know what might be possible. Or not. The two teams met three weeks ago at 20th and Olney, with St. Joe's winning by 21. Saturday night at Hagan Arena it turned out to be more of the same.

With 3 minutes, 17 seconds remaining in Friday night's Catholic League quarterfinal at La Salle, a member of Archbishop Ryan's jubilant students' section pleaded aloud with his ride home. "Dude, there's three minutes left," he said, "how often do we beat La Salle in anything?!" Thanks to the Raiders' stingy defense and Izaiah Brockington's 27 points, Ryan beat La Salle, 67-49, and will advance to Wednesday's semifinals at the Palestra. "That was our goal the first day I got here," said first-year coach Joe Zeglinski.

La Salle University, undergoing evaluation of its programs as part of a financial squeeze, has added some potentially alluring varsity sports to its lineup: women's golf, and men's and women's water polo. Popular in the mid-Atlantic region, the sports are expected to draw more students to the university. "The enrollment growth opportunity these new teams represent made this decision a clear one," president Colleen Hanycz said. All three sports had been club-level activities.
