DAYTON, Ohio - Former Saint Joseph's assistant and South Jersey native Matt Brady picked up his first NCAA Tournament win as a head coach Wednesday night as James Madison beat LIU-Brooklyn, 68-55, in a play-in game. It took Brady 9 years for his win. For the Dukes, it's been much, much longer. "It's significant. There's no escaping that," Brady said. "I think it's great for all head coaches when they have an opportunity to do it on your first [try]. Some of the greats of the game have been in the NCAA Tournament and have struck out for a few years at a time.

Each St. Joseph's game, Matt Brady takes his seat on the bench, a clipboard tucked under his arm. Hands cupped around his mouth, he occasionally barks out instructions to the Hawks or offers a dig at an official. Mostly, though, Brady trains his eyes on St. Joe's array of long-range shooters, checking such details as release points, balance, and the arc of each shot. During this hard-to-imagine St. Joe's season - which continues tomorrow with the final regular-season road game at Rhode Island, where the second-ranked Hawks will try to extend their perfect season to 26 wins - Brady has watched his work yield fantastic results.

Highly regarded as a basketball camp instructor, and well-connected with high school coaches in the talent-rich North Jersey-New York area, Mike Rice seemed a logical choice to replace Matt Brady as an assistant coach on Phil Martelli's staff at St. Joseph's. Certainly, Martelli thought so, which is why he was delighted to announce the hiring of Rice yesterday. "Mike has a real wealth of knowledge in terms of skill development," Martelli said. "He's very well liked among high school coaches in New Jersey and New York and by AAU coaches, which makes him very strong for recruiting.

Matt Risse laughs when asked a frequent question about comparing his father's high school basketball experience to his own. Risse, a 6-foot-5 senior wing player for Paul VI, acknowledges that from time to time his father, Rich, offers some good-natured ribbing because he has something his son desires: a state championship. Rich Risse was a starter who averaged 17 points for a Paul VI team that won the 1983 state Parochial A title. Now it's called the Non-Public A championship and it holds a magical grip over Matt Risse and the other six seniors on the Paul VI team who will be giving it one final try after advancing to the South Jersey final each of the last two years.

Matt Brady, St. Joseph's top assistant coach under Phil Martelli for the last nine seasons, will be named head coach at Marist today at a news conference on the school's campus in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

IT'S BEEN 12 years since Matt Brady coached his last game at Saint Joseph's, those Hawks seconds away from the 2004 Final Four. Brady left Phil Martelli's staff soon after for his first head-coaching job at Marist and parlayed success there into the job at James Madison. He brought what might be his best JMU team to the Daskalakis Athletic Center on Thursday night to play Drexel, which does not have one of its best teams. If you just walked in off the street with no context and no idea of the records, you would have thought early that it was Drexel on its way to 20 wins, not 20 losses.

Drexel's injury list has grown so long that the Dragons had only eight healthy players available Thursday night for their 54-35 loss to James Madison. On the bright side, Bruiser Flint's funny bone still seems to be OK. "Did you all watch it?" the coach said, laughing, when asked what went wrong. "I know you all watched the game. The only thing is you don't have to watch it again like I do. " Drexel made just 24 percent of its shots from the floor and lost for the ninth time in 10 games.

Last month's run to the Sweet 16 thrust La Salle coach John Giannini into the national spotlight and surely made his name a popular one when coaching jobs opened up. But Giannini said Wednesday afternoon that he had not been contacted by Rutgers after the university fired embattled coach Mike Rice, who was videotaped yelling gay slurs at his players and physically assaulting them. "I've received zero contact from anybody," Giannini said when reached by phone in Atlanta. "And it's hard to speculate on anything when there's zero interest.

A year ago in the Carino was the last time guard Ron Curry represented Paul VI in a game. Recently, he has received some valuable television time while playing for James Madison University. Curry, a reserve freshman point guard, averaged 27.4 minutes and 5.6 points for the Dukes. Since James Madison had a senior point guard in Devon Moore, Curry often played off the ball.
