The owners of Madison Square Garden are close to an agreement with two developers to move one block west to a $750 million home on Ninth Avenue, real estate executives and government officials told the New York Times. The Garden would move to the western half of the blocklong James A. Farley Building, the post office that is being transformed into a $930 million transit hub to be a gateway to New York City. It is to be called Moynihan Station, after Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the senator who was its champion until his death in 2003.

It's been 17 seasons since women's collegiate basketball has been played in Madison Square Garden. Vivian Stringer was there. In December 1981, her Cheyney team rallied but fell short to Rutgers, 86-82, in front of a few thousand fans in the third-place game of the Manufacturers Hanover Tournament. She'll be there today - this time coaching Rutgers - when the No. 15 Scarlet Knights (9-2) meet No. 2 Tennessee (10-1), the three-time defending NCAA champions, at 2 p.m. in front of as many as 15,000 fans.

DREXEL COACH Bruiser Flint hopes his Dragons can improve upon their last respectable Madison Square Garden appearance. Drexel (3-1) faces unbeaten and No. 4-ranked Arizona (5-0) tonight at 7 o'clock in a NIT Season Tip-Off semifinal. In 2005, Drexel gave then-No. 1 Duke all it could handle before losing by 10 points. Then the Dragons lost by just one point to UCLA, prompting ESPN analyst Dick Vitale to exclaim, "If Drexel is the [preseason] No. 7 team in the CAA, that must be a heckuva league.

Another hostile environment, another nationally ranked, nationally renowned opponent, another breathless thriller last night for the Penn Quakers. These things aren't upsets anymore. Showing great composure in the final minutes, in front of 15,812 predominantly hostile fans at Madison Square Garden, the Quakers buried 25th- ranked St. John's, 79-73, under a barrage of three-pointers to win the ECAC Holiday Festival. Six of those treys came from Matt Maloney, who had one of the great nights of his career.

There were 5,472 at the Liacouras Center. New Mexico coach Fran Fraschilla couldn't help but notice. He knows that if last night's second-round Preseason NIT game were played at his place, the crowd would have been three times larger. And in this tournament, cash usually talks. Yet he took the high road, even though a win would have earned him a trip back to his New York City roots. "As much as I would love to have had this game at The Pit, I know how it works," the former Manhattan and St. John's coach said, after Temple defeated his Lobos, 61-49.

The first WNBA All-Star Game, held at Madison Square Garden last night, was a smashing success for everyone except the East squad and homegrown sensation Chamique Holdsclaw. The West squad, featuring a dominant inside attack, was a 79-61 winner in front of a sellout crowd of 18,649. Holdsclaw, who grew up in nearby Queens, suffered a chip fracture in her left index finger during the opening minutes of action. Although she played at the close of the first half, the former Tennessee star, who was the league's overall top draft pick this year, did not return for the second.

Tie Domi's forecast was correct. There was no instigator penalty assessed. His fight with Bob Probert in the middle of last week was memorable for its intensity, for its length and for the sheer number of punches thrown. Every blow was meant to hurt, meant to hammer a knockout end to a ferocious 10- rounder of fistic thunder. New York Ranger and Detroit Red Wing. Toe-to-toe. The fight they wanted, the fight Madison Square Garden wanted, the fight 18,200 people came to see, and don't even try to suggest otherwise.

A South Jersey guy scores center-ice seats to see Eric Lindros play his first game as a Ranger against his former Flyers teammates. He rides the train north. He enjoys a Manhattan steak dinner. He slips into a $130 seat at Madison Square Garden. He has a beer or two. Unlike your stereotypical hard-core Flyers fan, he behaves. Or so he says in a lawsuit that made its way to U.S. District Court in Camden last week. Kevin Ridge, a Voorhees salesman and lifelong Flyers fan, has sued the New York Rangers and Madison Square Garden, seeking unspecified damages for the "mental anguish" and serious shoulder injury he suffered Nov. 14, 2001.

Not much is known of the meeting that gave birth to postseason college basketball, but cigar smoke surely choked the air. Several crusty New York sportswriters, encouraged by a colleague's financial windfall, were eager to make a few extra bucks as promoters. From the ashes of their smoky session arose the concept that is now an American sporting phenomenon. They decided that when the 1937-38 regular season ended, six worthy teams from around the country would be invited to play in a mini-tournament at Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK - It was more than midway through the basketball game, and there was still plenty of doubt regarding the outcome when Villanova point guard Ryan Arcidiacono rose up in transition, all alone, and took a three-point shot that not every player has the courage, or license, to attempt. "I would never think about it," teammate Josh Hart said. "But I don't care if he's shooting a three against four people. I know he's going to come back and defend and lay it on the line and jump over tables and dive on the floor.

NEW YORK - College basketball's postseason couldn't start at a better place for Villanova, with the Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden, where the Wildcats can generate some momentum for a long run in the NCAA tournament. It looked like it would happen last year when the Cats knocked off Marquette, Providence and Xavier to win their first Big East tournament title since 1995 and assure themselves a No. 1 NCAA seed. Of course, everyone remembers what happened the following weekend when 'Nova was unceremoniously sent home from March Madness after just two games.

Villanova coach Jay Wright, who led his team to its third consecutive regular-season Big East championship, was named conference co-coach of the year, the fifth time he has received the honor. Wright, who also won the award in 2006, 2009, 2014 and 2015, guided the Cats to a 27-4 overall mark and a 16-2 record in the league. The selection is made by the league's coaches. Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard also was honored. Villanova has posted a 48-6 record since the Big East was reconfigured in time for the 2013-14 season and a 51-7 mark counting its games in the postseason tournament.

Josh Hart says there were three simple reasons why he won outstanding player honors in leading Villanova to the 2015 Big East tournament title, and their names were Darrun Hilliard, JayVaughn Pinkston, and Ryan Arcidiacono. "The biggest thing is that we had Darrun, JP, and Ryan on the team," he said Monday. "[Opponents] were really looking to shut them down, so that gave me the ability to kind of go out there and just play basketball. I wasn't number one, number two, or number three on their scouting report.

MY NO. 1 NCAA seeds if the selections were today. East: Villanova South: Michigan State Midwest: Kansas West: North Carolina After overwhelming Georgetown Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center, 84-71, Villanova (27-4, 16-2 Big East) has gone a crazy 84-9 in the last three regular seasons. The players who did that will be able to look back on that someday with great pride. But it's no secret that everything these Wildcats have done this season will be judged in the context of how they do during the next two weeks in New York, first at Madison Square Garden in the Big East Tournament and then in the NCAA Tournament at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

It did not take long for the elephant in the room to be introduced and addressed. Villanova had just finished celebrating its third straight Big East regular-season title on the floor at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday afternoon following its 84-71 beat-down of longtime rival Georgetown. The victory was a culmination of a 27-4 season, including a 16-2 conference mark. Once the Wildcats built a 21-point lead in the first nine minutes, the only drama that remained was when coach Jay Wright would remove his two seniors - guard Ryan Arcidiacono and center Daniel Ochefu - to let them bask in separate standing ovations from the sellout crowd.

The statistic is an admirable one, but not something Villanova junior forward Josh Hart thinks about much. In the three seasons that Hart has played for the Wildcats, his team never has lost back-to-back games. The last time that happened came in the final two games - Louisville in the Big East tournament, North Carolina in the NCAAs - of the 2012-13 season, before he came to the Main Line. With an entire week to think about last weekend's overtime loss to Providence, the sixth-ranked Wildcats (17-3, 7-1 Big East)

VILLANOVA Villanova redshirt freshman Mikal Bridges, who starred at Great Valley, has been "such a pleasant surprise" to coach Jay Wright. The 6-foot-7 swingman is averaging 7.0 points and 3.3 rebounds and among the team leaders in blocked shots and steals. Bridges also has impressed on defense. He recently has been matched up against the opposition's top scorer, going eye-to-eye with Georgetown's D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Seton Hall's Isaiah Whitehead, and Providence's Kris Dunn.

Veteran NBA coach Mike D'Antoni is now the associate head coach of the 76ers, two league sources said Thursday night. D'Antoni, 64, was spotted when he arrived at Philadelphia International Airport. He had been in talks with the Sixers to join their coaching staff. D'Antoni has 12 years of head coaching experience with the Denver Nuggets, Phoenix Suns, Knicks, and Los Angeles Lakers. He also is someone the new chairman of basketball operations, Jerry Colangelo, trusts to be his eyes and ears when Colangelo is more than 2,000 miles away in Phoenix.
