Joe McCourt did not become a football star by accident. He attained that status by working hard and maintaining a healthy level of self-confidence. Ask McCourt, a senior at Roman Catholic High, whether he feels he could play Division I-A college football, and he says: "I know I can. There's no doubt in my mind. But you ask a lot of those coaches and they say I'm too slow because I run 4.7 [seconds for 40 yards]. But I know one thing: When I get a football in my hands, I can do a lot better things than some of the guys running 4.4s and 4.5s.

EASTON - Although Penn looked solid in the first half of its matchup against Lafayette last night, the Quakers' first win of the New Year did not come as easily as they may have liked. After a second half in which neither team was able to establish more than an eight-point lead, the Quakers emerged victorious at the Kirby Center, 78-73. Once again, senior guard Zack Rosen set the tone for the Quakers (7-8). At the end of the first half, he had accounted for 13 of the Red and Blue's 33 points, and netted a game-high 24. With his four second-half assists, Rosen also broke Penn's all-time assist record with 506, previously held by none other than current coach Jerome Allen.

Coming off a 71-58 victory at James Madison in its first outing in Colonial Athletic Association play, the Drexel basketball team will go for two straight tonight when it hosts Lafayette for a nonleague game at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. For a Drexel squad (2-3) that includes only one senior, and which has six freshmen and sophomores who are seeing significant playing time, the big win on the road Saturday was the kind of outing that helps a team to grow. The Dragons led James Madison by 25-23 at intermission, and held the lead for the last 16 minutes, 20 seconds as they hit 11 of their last 12 free throws.

Rivera made a layup to put them up by 15. Lafayette whittled away at the lead however, and a three-point play by Paul Cummins cut the Hawks' advantage to 78-73 with less than a minute left.
