Lafayette felt familiar to Roman Catholic senior Joe McCourt. It felt as if he had been there before. McCourt, The Inquirer's city football player of the year last season, made an oral commitment to Lafayette on Thursday. He said he was impressed with the coaching staff during the recruiting process and the campus during his official visit. But he also liked that Lafayette was not too big - just like Roman. And he liked that Lafayette was in a rebuilding process - just like Roman when he arrived four years ago. "It just reminded me of Roman," McCourt said.

Greg McCleary had just finished an OK, but nothing special junior basketball season at West Catholic High when coach Bill Ludlow sat him down for an evaluation. "Coach Ludlow said he thought I could become a Patriot League or Ivy League player," McCleary said. "Was I surprised? Well, what I thought was that coach Ludlow knows basketball pretty well, so it must be possible. " It was. McCleary, a 6-5 forward for the Burrs' Catholic League runners-up, announced last night that he had made an oral commitment to Lafayette, the Patriot champ and NCAA Tournament participant, that is coached by former Penn assistant Fran O'Hanlon.

The French Mint has struck a series of commemorative coins honoring Gilbert, Marquis de Lafayette. The 100-franc coin is the sixth in a series commemorating people and events that shaped French history. The coin, cast in platinum, gold, silver and palladium, will be issued in proof and uncirculated condition. The silver coin also will be struck in piedfort (double weight) in both proof and uncirculated condition. This coin is noteworthy in the series because the portrait on the obverse has been struck from 200-year-old dies preserved by the French Mint after it issued a medal in 1789 marking Lafayette's appointment as commander of the French National Guard.

Going into last night's game with Penn, Lafayette's basketball team had lost seven of its last eight games, and had its coach wondering if the Leopards were ever going to win again. But Lafayette looked like a worldbeater in its 83-72 win over the Quakers, a game that was not as close as the final score indicates. Lafayette (5-13) led by 24 points with just over three minutes to play. The Quakers cut the final margin to just 11 in the remaining garbage time. "We were down to our last thread," Lafayette senior point guard Bruce Stankavage said.

EASTON, Pa. - It looked as if Tony Hicks was passing the ball to no one. His team trailing by two points with about five minutes remaining in Penn's 79-76 loss at Lafayette on Saturday, Hicks threw the ball away on a crucial possession. The pass might have been intended for freshman Tony Bagtas, who had slipped open at the top of the key. Instead, it sailed over everyone's heads and banged off the press table. Hicks, who committed five of his team's 17 turnovers, just put his head down and walked down the court.

Anticipation for the season opener at Villanova was quickly replaced by angst as Lafayette, from the scholarly Patriot League, came to the Main Line meaning business with its array of three-point shooters and its attention to detail. In the end, though, the Wildcats survived because of superior personnel. They went into attack mode at crunch time and wiped out a six-point second-half deficit to defeat the Leopards by a deceiving 75-59 Friday night at the Pavilion. "It was a great game to start with because we really got tested," Villanova coach Jay Wright said.

DYLAN ENNIS doesn't want to miss any games. The way he figures it, he already missed enough of them last season. But that was NCAA-mandated, after he transferred to Villanova from Rice. This is different. This time, he's sitting because he has a cast on his right (shooting) hand, protecting a broken bone in his middle finger. Doesn't matter whether it was a freak accident or not. The Wildcats were running a 5-on-0 drill at practice, and Ennis ran into freshman big man Darryl Reynolds.
