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.

The four of them sit at the end of the La Salle bench and provide some context to the struggles of this season and perhaps a glimpse as to what the Explorers of next season, with a full bench, might look like. La Salle coach John Giannini has mentioned multiple times that he "overestimated" and "misevaluated" some things while "under-recruiting" this group, blaming himself for what's become a lost season on Olney Avenue. He's talked about those four guys, though: transfers B.J. Johnson (Syracuse)

With their matching white headbands, dark shoes and white socks, Korey Billbury and Jordan Price looked like twins wearing different colors on the floor of Tom Gola Arena. For large portions of the game, wherever Price was on the La Salle offensive end, Billbury stood right with him, making it nearly impossible to get the ball in the hands of La Salle's leading scorer, let alone get him a good look at the basket. Virginia Commonwealth, the top team in the Atlantic Ten, knew the best way to beat the Explorers, the league's cellar-dweller: keep the league's second-leading scorer off the scoreboard as much as possible.

The recipe for success for the Archbishop Wood basketball team isn't complicated. Getting the ingredients to coalesce, however, has been a challenge at times. The Vikings had no such worries Friday night against La Salle in a 73-63 victory in front of a raucous home crowd. The win was the third straight for Wood (10-7, 4-5), which had lost four straight games in Catholic League play before its recent streak. The biggest difference: playing team basketball. "I think they realized that if they trust each other, trust in the system and play together, they're hard to beat," said coach John Mosco.

While Josh Sharkey handled the Archbishop Carroll offense, Miks Antoms anchored its defense, which gave up 98 points last week. The 6-foot-7 senior from Latvia blocked four shots as the Patriots overwhelmed visiting La Salle, 66-52, in the lone Catholic League contest Tuesday night. Last week, Neumann-Goretti skewered Carroll's defense for nearly 100 points. In the fourth quarter Tuesday, however, Antoms' defense started a sequence that illustrated vast improvement. "Play of the game," Carroll coach Paul Romanczuk said.

THE HOME TEAM had lost 10 of 11. The visitors had won 11 of 12. Naturally, after 12 minutes late Sunday afternoon at Gola Arena, La Salle led Saint Joseph's, 19-8. The Hawks looked somewhere between uninterested and stuck in a giant snow drift. It was, of course, a mirage. La Salle is doing the best it can with what it has, which isn't nearly enough. It was just a question of when the game was going to turn. When it turned, it turned hard. The Hawks' defense suffocated the Explorers; they got out and began to run. The La Salle lead evaporated rapidly.
