Everything that's always defined the most memorable of Big Five games - the noisy sellout crowd at the Palestra, the visible angst of the opposing coaches, the skidding belly flops by players to save a ball from going out of bounds - was in abundance last night when St. Joseph's and Penn went at each other as if a championship were at stake. It wasn't, of course, but that didn't prevent St. Joe's players from skipping off the court congratulating one another after a hard-earned 57-55 victory over Penn before a packed Palestra of 8,722.

After Penn fell to Illinois, 68-58, in yesterday's first-round NCAA East Regional contest at Lawrence Joel Coliseum, the main thing on the mind of Quakers center Geoff Owens was that his two roommates had just played their last college game. Owens, who entered Penn along with senior all-Ivy League guards Michael Jordan and Matt Langel, will petition the NCAA for a medical waiver and is expected to return to play next season. Owens missed the 1997-98 season after being diagnosed with hypertension.

Penn guard Matt Langel committed four turnovers in the first half last night. His backcourt mate, Michael Jordan, had three, and the rather shaky Quakers left the court trailing at halftime of an Ivy League game for the first time this season. In the end, it was the senior duo of Langel and Jordan that got Penn back on track for a 69-55 victory over Dartmouth at Leede Arena. The two four-year starters combined for 18 points during the first 17 minutes of the second half, and the Quakers were able to put some distance between themselves and their ambitious hosts.

The Yale basketball team brought a 1-9 record to the Palestra last night to play a Penn team that many consider the favorite to win the Ivy League championship. At least on the surface, the contest had the potential to be one of those fun nights for the Quakers in which they cruise to victory. It wasn't. Penn needed some clutch shooting by juniors Michael Jordan and Matt Langel to bail the team out of a few second-half jams, and the Quakers were able to subdue the Bulldogs and hand them a 68-62 defeat.

Nobody wanted this. You can't find a person walking around the Palestra who is overjoyed to hear that Jerome Allen's Penn tenure is down to one game, Tuesday against Princeton. An all-time Quakers great who clearly poured his soul into his job but didn't have the success needed to keep it, the news leaked out Saturday that Allen had found out earlier last week that his contract will be bought out after the season. Allen was elevated from assistant when Glen Miller was let go in 2009-10, when Allen had just joined the staff.

Matt Langel is the new basketball coach at Colgate University. Langel, who spent the last five seasons as an assistant at Temple, will be formally introduced as Colgate's coach Thursday in Hamilton, N.Y. He replaces Emmett Davis, who was let go after the Raiders finished 7-23 this season. Langel, 32, played at Penn from 1996 to 2000, finishing with 1,191 points. The Moorestown native coached under Fran Dunphy with the Quakers and the Owls. "I'm excited about the future of Colgate basketball with Matt as our head coach," Colgate athletic director David Roach said.

People close to Penn's search for a new basketball coach said yesterday that Cornell coach Steve Donahue, who is a former Penn assistant, and Lehigh coach Billy Taylor interviewed this week for the vacancy. Current assistant Dave Duke is expected to meet with athletic director Steve Bilsky about the position before Sunday. Duke is handling the Quakers during this transition period - along with fellow assistants Matt Langel and Shawn Trice. Meanwhile, Lafayette coach Fran O'Hanlon, another former Penn assistant under Fran Dunphy, has removed himself from consideration for the Quakers job. His decision made sense.

Penn opened its Ivy League schedule last night, and did so in decisive fashion. Guard Paul Romanczuk scored a career-high 19 points and center Michael Jordan added 13 points and six rebounds as Penn knocked off Yale, 70-54, in the league-opener for both squads. Penn (4-4, 1-0) led by seven at the half, 28-21, and outscored the Bulldogs in the first five minutes of the second half, 13-3. Yale (5-6, 0-1) pulled to within seven, 43-36, on a Teddy Miller layup with 10:57 remaining.

Penn's diminutive frontcourt was matched up against taller and stronger players for the second straight game in the San Juan Shootout yesterday, but this time it didn't matter. While the Quakers resorted to forced shots and impatience from the perimeter, the frontcourt offense carried the team at crucial moments in leading Penn to a 69-67 win over Washington State in the losers' bracket. With 1 minute, 11 seconds to play, Penn's Jed Ryan fed Paul Romanczuk through traffic for a layup and a foul for the final Penn points.

Under Fran Dunphy, Penn's basketball program never has backed away from a challenge. A year ago, the Quakers opened at home against Kansas and Temple and got a split. They should have swept. This season, the defending Ivy League champions will start out at Kentucky, which has won two of the last four national titles, in the first round of the Preseason NIT Nov. 17 on ESPN. "We're just grateful to be in," Dunphy said. "It's a great opportunity for us to see what we can do against a high-level program.

When it comes to judging coaches and players, we all have our biases - professional biases, not talking personal. My first college hoops beat at The Inquirer consisted of covering an Ivy League team that never lost an Ivy League game for three seasons. A team that featured a star player named Jerome Allen, who was Penn's head coach for the last time Tuesday against Princeton. My bias stems from covering that era of Penn Quakers, 1992-95. The guards went on to the pros. The assistant coaches went on to be head coaches.

WHEN THE season hits mid-February, nobody will remember much about the first games except who won. La Salle won. Penn lost. Conclusions would be a mistake. La Salle trailed much of the first half at Gola against Colgate, got a working margin in the second and held on to win 57-52. It looked and felt pretty much like a first game. Neither team shot very well, a combined 7-for-34 from the arc. The Explorers got 10 points and 13 rebounds from senior big man Jerrell Wright. La Salle also got 19 combined points from its two point guards - Khalid Lewis, who started, and Amar Stukes, who played in his first game after redshirting.

Here are the assistants, school by school, with the first school listed for John Gallagher (La Salle, Penn) and Matt Langel (Penn, Temple) who were assistants at two Big 5 schools.

TUCSON, Ariz. - Matt Langel started watching San Diego State tapes not long after the NCAA Tournament brackets were revealed Sunday evening. If Temple beat Penn State, Langel, one of Fran Dunphy's assistants, wanted to get a head start on a possible third-round matchup. The matchup is now real and will be played tonight (6:10) at McKale Center. The winner will move on to the Sweet 16 next week. Langel watched more tapes Thursday night. So did Dunphy and the rest of the staff. "They've played 35 games and they've won 33 times," Langel said.

So, how did this happen exactly? No, not the three consecutive Atlantic 10 champions, but the seamless transition from a style of play that rode the old coach to the Hall of Fame to a new style that could not be any different. The only similarities between the John Chaney way and the Fran Dunphy way are the results. Both methods win. Chaney's Temple teams played the matchup. Isolations on offense. No turnovers. Run the shot clock down. Dunphy's Temple teams play man-to-man. They play the beautiful read-and-react passing game on offense.

Penn had some talented players in the season after Michael Jordan and Matt Langel left in 2000, but something was missing. That was Andy Toole. Without Toole, who was sitting out a transfer season from Elon, the Quakers were 12-17. "We struggled that year and I couldn't wait to get him on the court and watch him play," said Temple coach Fran Dunphy, then the coach at Penn. "He meant the world to us the next couple of years. " With Toole the next two seasons, Penn was 47-13.

One player said Jekyll and Hyde would be an accurate way to describe his coach. A former player said that practices were like wars, with the coach as the enemy. A onetime colleague and longtime friend called him the most competitive man he has ever known. Bob Knight? Gary Williams? John Chaney? No. Nope. Negative. Fran Dunphy. Yeah, that Fran Dunphy - the universally liked, publicly genteel Temple coach. Three years ago, when he arrived from Penn to replace the legendary Chaney, Dunphy was seen by some as too nice to succeed on North Broad Street.
