BETHLEHEM - Penn basketball's early-season woes continued Tuesday night with a loss at the hands of Lehigh, 73-66. Junior forward Fran Dougherty was again Penn's leading scorer with 17 points and 10 rebounds, but no other Quaker scored in double digits. Conversely, four Lehigh players hit double digits: All-America C.J. McCollum, Gabe Knutson, Mackey McKnight and Holden Greiner. McCollum led the way with 21 points while Knutson had 18 points and 10 rebounds. "We have a responsibility to just guard the basketball, whoever has it," Penn coach Jerome Allen said of the Quakers' defense.

THE BEST-CASE scenario for injured Lehigh guard C.J. McCollum is for the preseason All-American to return in 2-plus months, just in time for the Patriot League Tournament. But his potentially lucrative future in the NBA may take precedence over a speedy recovery. Either way, Lehigh coach Brett Reed is preparing for life without the senior who helped the Mountain Hawks stun powerhouse Duke in the NCAA Tournament last season. Reed is trying to be realistic. "We have to progress," he said, "and move on. " McCollum broke his left foot last week in a game against Virginia Commonwealth.

John Chaney won't talk about Georgetown. Or LSU. Or Indiana or Georgia Tech or Duke or any other team his top-ranked Temple Owls might meet in the NCAA East Regional. He'll talk only about Lehigh - the team the Owls will meet. "I see this tournament as a great, big ladder, and right now, Lehigh is on the next rung, and we're climbing up to knock them off," said Chaney, whose team will face the Brown and White tonight (Channel 10, 7 o'clock) in the first round at the Hartford Civic Center.

The biggest gripe among East Coast Conference coaches is the lack of respect the league receives from outside observers. The ECC does, however, boast three outstanding players - Drexel guard Michael Anderson, Lehigh forward Daren Queenan and Lafayette forward Otis Ellis - who could do much this season to boost the league's prestige. Lehigh, which has all five starters back from a 15-14 team, is the consensus pick to win the ECC title, but the Engineers' bench is weak. Lehigh, however, should enjoy plenty of success behind Queenan, a 6-foot-5 senior from Norristown who averaged 24.8 points and 9.1 rebounds last season, and 6-2 senior guard Mike Polaha (19.7 points, 3.2 assists)

To look at Lehigh guard Mike Polaha, you'd think his basketball ability would be somewhat limited. "You see him with that (full knee brace) on his leg and you feel sorry for him," said Drexel coach Eddie Burke. "But I guess I shouldn't. " Polaha slew the Dragons with a record 42 points yesterday as Lehigh won in two overtimes, 109-98, in the opening round of the East Coast Conference tournament at Towson Center. The Engineers (15-13), seeded fourth, will take on top-seeded Bucknell today in the semifinals.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Mike Krzyzewski knew this year's Duke team had its flaws. Several of them hurt the Blue Devils in a big way on Friday night. Austin Rivers and Mason Plumlee had 19 points apiece, but Duke struggled from three-point range and lost 75-70 to Lehigh to become the second No. 2 seed to lose to a 15 during a wild day in the NCAA tournament. Norfolk State, another 15th seed, upset Missouri earlier in a West region game in Omaha, Neb. The Blue Devils, who relied on the three-point shot this season, went 6 for 26 from behind the arc and another speedy guard sliced through their defense.

The anticipated NCAA Tournament version of "Godzilla vs. the Mole Men" never materialized. A Temple nightmare did. It began at 7:07 last night and almost refused to go away. Coach John Chaney tried everything but cold slaps to the face. Nothing worked. The defense remained passive. The intensity was below sea level. Rims kept intercepting Temple shots on goal. And scrappy kids with "Lehigh" emblazoned across their chests kept stepping between Temple rebounders and loose basketballs.

In its NCAA all-divisions-record 1,363 games, it seems unlikely that Penn ever threw what should have been three touchdown passes on its first possession. Only one of them counted in game No. 1,364 after two were dropped, but it definitely hinted at the points that would pile up in the opener for the Quakers against Lehigh on Saturday at Franklin Field. The teams had 10 first-half possessions. Eight went for touchdowns. One ended in a missed field goal, the other in an interception. There were 593 yards of offense, 33 first downs, 76 plays, and no punts.

PENN, the defending Ivy League co-champion, will finally begin its season Saturday afternoon at home against Lehigh. A year ago, the Quakers started 1-3 for first-year coach Ray Priore, their longtime assistant. They wouldn't lose again, which means what will mostly be remembered is beating Harvard and the title. But they did drop their first game, 41-20, at Lehigh. And that's hard for them to forget. "They tattooed us pretty good," said Priore, whose team has been picked to finish second, just behind Harvard, in the preseason media poll.

Any journey that starts with playoff aspirations probably shouldn't begin with back-to-back losses. Yet for Villanova, it nearly did. Under Andy Talley, who's in his 32nd and final season, the Wildcats were 26-5 in home openers. One of those blemishes came in 2006 to Lehigh. The only one since then happened five years ago. Saturday night on the Main Line, seven days after they were beaten at Pitt by 21, the Wildcats hosted a Lehigh team that had lost last week by two points to visiting Monmouth.

VILLANOVA'S SEASON started last weekend with a 28-7 loss at FBS Pitt. But now the journey gets underway for real Saturday night when the Wildcats host Lehigh, which opened with a 23-21 home loss to Monmouth. 'Nova had nothing to lose at Pitt. From here on out, that's no longer the case. Not if you're a team that wants to make the FCS playoffs for the sixth time in nine years in this, Andy Talley's 32nd and last season. Next week, they host Towson, which beat the Wildcats last year, in their Colonial Athletic Association opener.

ALLENTOWN - When a Phillies top prospect, shortstop J.P. Crawford, was struggling after being promoted to triple-A Lehigh Valley earlier this season, he didn't have to go far for advice. The player whose locker is next to Crawford's is outfielder Nick Williams. The two are good friends, and they may have a friendly race to determine who gets called up to the Phillies first. What they also have in common is that they had less than stellar triple-A beginnings but have rebounded well.

ALLENTOWN - As players attempt to reach the major leagues, confidence can fluctuate on a daily basis with performance. For Nick Williams, one of the most highly regarded outfielders in the Phillies' system, confidence has never been an issue. Overconfidence is something he admittedly has struggled with. "I've always been extremely confident, and at times I am overconfident and I have to slow down," Williams said. Williams, who will turn 23 in September, was acquired from Texas last year in the Cole Hamels trade.

A Quakertown couple fleeced Lehigh University fraternities and sororities and their alumni associations out of nearly $1.5 million meant to pay for upkeep and food services at their Greek houses, federal prosecutors said Thursday. Instead, Albert and Betty Fisher drew large salaries from the funds the groups paid into their company, Bethlehem-based Fraternity Management Association, and used student funds to pay for their personal credit card bills, clothes at high-end department stores, and travel, including an $8,000 cruise.
