Chattanooga was usually the best finisher in the Southern Conference Tournament. Then the Mocs ran into North Carolina Greensboro's David Schuck. Schuck's driving basket with 0.4 seconds left gave the Spartans a 67-66 victory over Chattanooga in the Southern Conference Tournament championship game yesterday in Greenville, S.C., sending the Spartans to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in five years. North Carolina Greensboro is coached by former La Salle High and Penn guard Fran McCaffery, who was the head coach when Lehigh went to the NCAA Tournament in 1988.

The credit Pete Gillen is given for taking Providence through the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament has little to do with preparation or X's and O's, and everything to do with the coach's persistence. The up-and-down Friars appeared close to being an NCAA afterthought after losing their last three games in the Big East Conference regular season. But the point that their coach had been hammering and hammering into their heads at practice, and every spare moment he saw them, finally sank in. "He got us to play unselfish and play for each other," forward Austin Croshere said yesterday, looking ahead to tonight's unlikely semifinal matchup in the NCAA Southeast Regional between the 10th-seeded Friars and 14th seed Tennessee-Chattanooga at the Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center.

Fishing for a new coach back in 1985, Tennessee-Chattanooga interviewed Roy Williams, then an assistant at North Carolina who thought a head-coaching job in the Southern Conference to be almost nirvana. But Williams felt awkward about the timing, because his son had just started at a new school, and pulled himself from consideration. These days, you won't find a whole lot of people in Chattanooga complaining. "They got a better coach," Williams said. "And he can tell a lot more jokes than I can, that's for sure.

A first-half scoring drought knocked Villanova out of the Women's NIT last night with a 50-40 loss to Tennessee-Chattanooga on the Mocs' home floor.

COMBATING poverty is an important issue in Philadelphia, but you wouldn't know that from the ho-hum response to an audit of Mayor's Office of Community Services (MOCS) released by the city controller on Wednesday. The report found that MOCS - the only city agency explicitly charged with ending poverty - has weak oversight over public dollars supposed to be under its supervision. According to the audit, staffers for the anti-poverty agency had little or no information about a $445,000 contract listed as part of MOCS' budget.

Tennessee-Chattanooga last played in the NCAA Tournament two years ago. The Mocs fell behind to Connecticut, 15-0, and never recovered. Last night, they turned that around. Chattanooga, the No. 14 seed, stunned Georgia by scoring the first 15 points of the game, then held on for a 73-70 upset of the third-seeded Bulldogs in the first round of the Southeast Regional at Charlotte Coliseum. "We really wanted to have a good start," said forward Johnny Taylor, who wasn't around when the Mocs were beaten by UConn, 100-71, in their 1995 NCAA Tournament appearance.

Three members of the Blazing Angels, the Bristol Township-based 18-and-under girls' softball team that won the Amateur Softball Association fast-pitch national title in August, recently gave oral commitments to play at Division I colleges. Malissa Moczulski, a senior at Archbishop Wood, notified coach Karen Weekly at Chattanooga yesterday that she would accept a scholarship from the Mocs. Barb Leasure, a senior at Harry S Truman High, and Danielle Blake, a senior at Central Bucks East, both said last week that they would accept offers to play at Marist.

IT WAS THE MIDDLE of January and Chattanooga coach John Shulman was feeling a bit despondent. Despite being loaded with seniors, his Mocs were 1-2 in the league and 5-10 overall. Davidson was clearly the darling of the Southern Conference, but Chattanooga was supposed to be better than 5-10 with 16 regular-season games remaining. Then, Shulman's cell phone went off. The text message read: " 20 WINS THIS YEAR!!! IT'S STILL POSSIBLE . " It was a missive from one of his leaders, Philadelphia native Khalil Hartwell, and it almost immediately brightened the coach's spirits.

Some teams get in a zone; St. Joseph's couldn't shoot over one last night. The Hawks had their worst perimeter shooting night of the season - perhaps the decade - against Chattanooga's matchup zone defense, resulting in the Mocs' 68-65 victory at the UTC Arena. Tim Brown and Bill Phillips, who scored 11 points each, were the only Hawks to hit from beyond the arc as the team combined to go 2 for 22 on three-pointers. "This is the converse of the other night," St. Joe's coach Phil Martelli said, referring to an 8-for-18 long-range performance in a 71-64 win over South Carolina on Tuesday.

Bishop Eustace cross-country runner Holly Bischof was a state champion and earned the overall Meet of Champions title the following week in what was a banner senior season that improved upon an outstanding junior year. After all the success, one question needs to be asked: How well would Bischof have done had she been 100 percent healthy? Bischof, The Inquirer's South Jersey cross-country runner of the year, was hampered by a shin injury that affected her training and added more than a little discomfort.

Michelle Brown was flushed and out of breath for an unusually long time after she won the 400-meter race June 3 at the track and field Meet of Champions at South Plainfield High. The air was humid and the sun was blazing as she summoned the energy to speak. "I think I'm the first girl in history to win three straight 400s at the Meet of Champions," the Seneca senior said. Brown was clocked in 55.52 seconds, a shade slower than the 54.49 she recorded to win the state Group 3 title a week earlier at South Plainfield.

Rutgers' stay in the Associated Press top 25 will certainly be a brief one. The Scarlet Knights (7-3, 2-3 Big East), voted into the poll last weekend, were upset yesterday by Syracuse, 31-13. Playing at home in Syracuse, N.Y., the Orange (4-7, 1-5) sacked Rutgers' Tom Savage nine times, tying a Syracuse record. Late in the game, the freshman from Cardinal O'Hara was taken down on three straight plays. Savage was held to 66 yards passing, and he threw two interceptions as Rutgers, which was No. 1 in the nation in turnover differential, finished the game minus-two.

Long before he became a camera-seeking example of me-first thinking, suspended Eagles receiver Terrell Owens was a football player who craved the end zone much more than the spotlight. In much simpler days, Owens was an unheralded receiver at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Although he has generated plenty of ill will in the NFL, there is one former coach who speaks only in glowing terms of his time with Owens. Buddy Green, now the defensive coordinator at Navy, took over as head coach at Tennessee-Chattanooga in 1994, Owens' junior season.

Chris Paul didn't do anything he'd regret. He doesn't want to spend another second watching this March. Wake Forest's star guard returned from a one-game suspension, and the second-seeded Demon Deacons shook off a horrible first half for a 70-54 win over Chattanooga in the NCAA Tournament last night in an Albuquerque Regional game at Cleveland. Wake Forest will play West Virginia, a 63-61 winner over Creighton, in tomorrow's second round. Paul scored 20 points and added six rebounds and five assists to pace Wake Forest (27-5)
