THREE WEEKS AGO, awaiting trial on vehicular-homicide charges, Wade Lohse walked out of a separate trial on gun charges in Lafayette, La., setting off a courtroom drama.

Then, he posted it to YouTube. "They're lying to you," he says in the video, referring to the government. "They've been lying to you all along.

Exactly a month had passed between Penn's last home game and Tuesday night's return to the Palestra. Forty days had passed since the Quakers' last win. A matchup with Lafayette - a team that had never beaten Penn in 22 previous meetings on 33d Street - seemed to be the perfect midwinter pick-me-up. It proved to be just the opposite. The Leopards rode an early second-half surge and staved off a frantic Penn comeback to deal the Quakers an 85-83 loss. Penn's offense found a good rhythm in the first half, registering 11 assists while scoring 40 points.
