In the four losses leading up to his team's regular-season finale Saturday against Dayton, La Salle coach John Giannini figured he knew what the missing element was. "We've been playing tough but not as tough as some of the people we lost to," Gianni said. "We've got to find the 'er.' We've been tough but we needed to be tough er . We needed to make those extra plays, we needed to consistently defend. Today we were able to do that against a really good team and beat them. " La Salle (16-15, 8-10 A-10)

Roman Catholic made a huge breakthrough by slaying six-time defending Catholic League champ Neumann-Goretti for its first league crown since 2007. And it repeated as the District 12 Class AAAA titlist. The big question now is: Can the 24-2 Cahillites also conquer the state playoffs? They have mostly struggled in the tournament, going 3-6 with four first-round exits in six appearances. Roman's bid for redemption is headed by guards Tony Carr, Gemil Holbrook and D'Andre Vilmar, and forwards Nazeer Bostick, Paul Newman, and Manny Taylor.

St. Joseph's point guard Chris Wilson was honored before the game during senior night at Hagan Arena. Then, fittingly, Wilson went out and had one of the best performances of his career in his final home appearance. Wilson scored 22 points, one shy of his career high, while adding six rebounds, three steals and one assist Wednesday as St. Joseph's defeated La Salle, 55-50, in an Atlantic Ten matchup. "It was very special and most importantly to win it with this group of guys," said Wilson, who shot 7 for 13 for the field and 5 of 9 from behind the arc. (The rest of the team was 1 for 10 from three-point range.)

AT THIS point 2 years ago, La Salle was getting ready to embark on an unexpected run to the Sweet 16. At this point a year ago, Saint Joseph's was about to win the Atlantic 10 championship as a four seed before coming closer than anybody else did to beating Connecticut in the NCAA Tournament. This year they're two teams in the bottom half of the standings, both having lost four of their previous five games, trying to get themselves ready for next week's conference tourney in Brooklyn.

Kathy May sees a lot of her older brother, Chip, in her niece Bailey Greenberg. The quick first step of the Archbishop Wood junior reminds May, an assistant coach for the Vikings, the most of the way Chip Greenberg played basketball. "Her first step," May said. "[With] her long first step, she can go by anybody. He could go by anybody. He could really jump as well. They have the same calves - strong, jumper calves we call them. Her sister has them, too. " Greenberg shares more than calves, a deft move to the basket and prowess on the boards with her father.

As the regular season winds down, coaches are looking for anything to build momentum headed into their conference tournaments. This probably explains why La Salle coach John Giannini - after seeing his team shoot dismally from the free-throw line (13 for 25); turn the ball over 10 times in the first half; and ultimately fall to Rhode Island, 59-56, at Tom Gola Arena - spoke optimistically about what's left for his team. "We're extremely disappointed with a loss," Giannini said after the Explorers (15-14, 7-9 Atlantic Ten)

It was about this time a year ago when La Salle began its improbable run in the PIAA Class AAAA state playoffs. Last season's runner-up finish started with a victory at Southern. This year, the Explorers hope their triumph Thursday night at the same locale is the start of something special again. Behind stingy defense and offensive efficiency, La Salle overwhelmed George Washington, 73-44, in a District 12 seeding game to earn the third and final seed in the AAAA state playoffs. "We were definitely a little worried coming in, just because there's a lot of pressure on us," senior forward Dave Krmpotich said.

NEW YORK - La Salle didn't score in the first 5 minutes, 14 seconds of its game at Fordham on Wednesday night. And the Explorers' shooting barely improved, as they hit just 29.5 percent from the field in a 63-48 loss to the Rams at Rose Hill Gymnasium in the Bronx. "I thought it was our worst game of the year," La Salle coach John Giannini said of the 15-point loss, which is his team's largest margin of defeat this season. "I don't have an explanation as to why it was our worst game of the year.

IT WAS ABOUT this time last year when La Salle started its improbable run in the Class AAAA state playoffs. In fact, last season's runner-up finish began with a seeding-game victory at Southern High. Now, the Explorers hope last night's triumph at the same locale is the start of something special Part 2. "We were definitely a little worried coming in just because there's a lot of pressure on us," said senior forward Dave Krmpotich. "We made a deep run in states last year and if we didn't even make it this year it would've been a knock on us. But we just tried to get out there, play our game and we weren't going to let this be our last high school basketball game.
