The room fell silent. Everyone knew that Delaware's name would pop up on the television screen eventually, but through each commercial break, the blue-and-yellow-clad fans packed inside the Carpenter Sports Building for the Blue Hens' selection-show viewing party stayed on the edge of their seats. The crowd let out a collective sigh of relief as Delaware (25-9), the Colonial Athletic Association champion, avoided a matchup with Louisville. But when the No. 13 Blue Hens saw their name appear under fourth-seeded Michigan State (26-8)

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - There were moments during Penn State's regular-season finale against No. 10 Michigan State when it appeared as if the Nittany Lions could play with the Spartans. But there were more times that the Spartans clearly looked like the better team. Michigan State proved the latter point on the scoreboard Saturday, using two touchdowns in a span of 2 minutes, 55 seconds in the third quarter to spark a 34-10 victory that spoiled the Lions' senior day festivities at Beaver Stadium.

Penn State offensive coordinator Fran Ganter had the rich contract in his hand and his mind made up. Before he went to bed Thursday night, he decided that he would leave Joe Paterno's staff after 24 years to become head coach at Michigan State. But after a restless night, Ganter, 45, had a change of heart. He decided to turn down what he admitted was a golden opportunity. "I woke up Friday morning and told my wife it just doesn't feel right," Ganter said yesterday, after the Nittany Lions' first practice for the Jan. 2 Rose Bowl against Oregon.

Tom Izzo was somber after his team's first setback of the season. J.P. Tokoto had 12 points and a career-high 10 rebounds to help North Carolina beat top-ranked Michigan State, 79-65, Wednesday night in East Lansing, Mich. "One of the more disappointing performances of my career here," Izzo said. "From the jump ball, they kind of took it to us. " The Tar Heels were in control from the start, never trailed, and used a 12-1 run to take a 65-52 lead with 6 minutes, 2 seconds remaining.

Pete Govens would not mind sitting out his first season at Michigan State, but the Glen Mills defensive tackle is so good he might not have a choice. "I was told that I could start if I come in and work hard," he said. "I'd prefer getting redshirted so I could learn a little more, but it's no problem if they want me to start. " Govens made an oral commitment to attend Michigan State last week. He certainly has starter's credentials coming out of high school. He was a first-team all-state selection after recording 84 tackles and five sacks in the fall.

Here's how great the NCAA men's basketball tournament is - even the NCAA can't screw it up. For three wonderful weeks every year, the NCAA looks as if it knows what it's doing. And, in this case alone, it actually might. The tournament committee stumbled around a little bit when expanding to 68 equal-but-not-really teams a few years ago. Other than that, the tournament is a model of efficiency and fairness. The move to a geographical pod system for the first weekend's glut of games was brilliant, both because it saves money and because it bolsters attendance by making it more practical to follow one's team.

THE THREE No. 1 seeds in the Final Four are 106-7. And then there is Michigan State (27-11), a team that can't be evaluated off regular-season performance because its coach, Tom Izzo, has developed a formula to get the Spartans to peak in mid-March. Saturday's second national semifinal at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis will not only be a rematch of last year's semi (won by Kentucky, 74-73), with many of the same participants, it will match the nation's most efficient offense (Wisconsin's)

St. Joseph's football team will play Maryland state power Mount St. Joseph on Oct. 10 in Baltimore, Wildcats coach Paul Sacco said Friday. Mount St. Joseph, an all-boys private school with an enrollment of around 1,000 students, was 8-3 last season. "It should be a good experience," Sacco said. "We'll go down a day early, maybe go to the Inner Harbor, go out to dinner. "They're a good team. Playing a game like this will help us. " This will mark the second season in a row that St. Joseph will play a road game against an out-of-state team.

Dzenan Catic scored an astounding 39 goals and assisted on 11 others in 25 games last season. The reason you've never heard of him if you're a soccer fan is because he played for Davenport University, a private school in Grand Rapids, Mich., that competes in the NAIA. "We were actually disappointed that he got invited to the combine because we thought he'd be kind of an under-the-radar guy," Union coach Jim Curtin said. "When he came and started to impress and was probably the best player on the field in the first game, we were nervous, thinking again maybe we would have to trade up. " But as players came off the board Thursday at the MLS SuperDraft at the Convention Center, the Union's need to trade dissipated.

THE FOLKS IN Ann Arbor are all giddy over the hiring of football coach Jim Harbaugh. After years of mediocrity, which is not tolerated in the Big House, and losing 10 of its last 11 games to hated rival Ohio State and six of seven to in-state rival Michigan State, Michigan is agog with the signing of alum Harbaugh. So caught up in the Harbaugh hoopla, the Detroit Free Press on Monday ran a photo of Jim's brother John, the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens, by mistake - on its front page no less.

MAGIC JOHNSON wants the Lakers to be more like the Sixers and start tanking so they get a high lottery pick. "I hope the Lakers lose every game," Johnson told Newsday yesterday. "Because if you're going to lose, lose. I'm serious. "If you're going to lose, you have to lose because you can't be in the middle of the pack. You either have to be great or you have to be bad to get a good pick . . . I'd rather be all the way bad than be in the middle. " Surprising words from one of the game's most competitive players.

Many football teams would love to win one championship. Many teams would love to end just one season in celebration on the cold turf in December, with ecstatic players lifting a trophy and thrusting their index fingers in the air. But for some teams, once is never enough. The overarching theme of championship weekend in South Jersey football was back-to-back titles. Or, in the case of Delsea, back-to-back-to-back titles. Or, in the case of St. Joseph, back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back titles.

STATE COLLEGE - Finishing a regular season 6-6 isn't what Penn State fans are used to. Neither is it something they want to get comfortable with. If you looked at the Nittany Lions' schedule 4 months ago and predicted a .500 record, most would call you a liar. Penn State, by all accounts, had it pretty easy. The Lions had a relatively soft nonconference slate, faced their two most difficult tests - Ohio State and Michigan State - at home, and, as of now, only six of 12 opponents are bowl-eligible.
