Penn took to the floor of the Palestra on Saturday looking to wash away the bitter aftertaste of last weekend's blowout loss to St. Joseph's. A visit from lowly NJIT was just the tonic. The Quakers jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first two minutes and were scarcely troubled after that, rolling to an 89-74 win in their last nonconference game of the season. "We just wanted to come out and have a great start - we haven't had too many of those," senior guard Miles Jackson-Cartwright said.

La Salle took a break from Atlantic Ten basketball last night to take on a Division I newcomer in the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Although they did not play one of their better games, the Explorers didn't have much trouble registering a 78-59 victory at Tom Gola Arena. The biggest reaction from the 1,530 fans in the stands came when little-used reserve Brad Cohen finished off the scoring with a three-point play with 1.1 seconds remaining. "We went around the locker room after the game, and each player mentioned a play or two they'd like to have back," said La Salle coach John Giannini, whose team improved to 8-9. "As long as we keep learning, we'll be all right.

Maybe there is extra pressure playing against a winless team. Certainly, La Salle didn't want to be the first team this season to lose to New Jersey Tech. But that concern seemed to be the furthest thing from the minds of the Explorers last night. They had five players in double figures while breezing to an 87-65 win over the Highlanders at Tom Gola Arena. "You can't keep the obvious things from your players," coach John Giannini said. "We feel that we've proven this year that we can compete against anyone in the country, and that we can lose to a lot of teams.

Villanova knew that its supposed mismatch against NJIT would be anything but a pre-Christmas basketball cakewalk. Can you say Michigan? NJIT made national news when it hit the road and defeated then-No. 17 Michigan, 72-70, on Dec. 6. The Highlanders flirted with another upset of a nationally ranked foe Tuesday before Villanova finally regrouped. Trailing by 48-41 early in the second half, Villanova went on a 20-3 run to assume control for good in a 92-67 win at the Pavilion.

Montana Mayfield, a senior point guard from Abington Friends School, committed Wednesday to play basketball at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Last season while helping the Kangaroos win their first Friends Schools League championship since 2006, the 6-foot, 175-pounder averaged about 13 points and four assists per game. He also received interest from Fairleigh Dickinson and Liberty. "He's a point guard, but he can also play the wing," AFS coach Steve Chadwin said. "He can shoot the ball really well.

NEWARK, N.J. - Jerome Allen emerged from the Penn locker room Thursday night seething, with no trace of a smile from a coach whose team had won its first game in seven weeks. Allen watched the Quakers throw the ball around to the tune of a season-high 26 turnovers. But they received five clutch points from sophomore guard Patrick Lucas-Perry down the stretch and hung on for a 54-53 victory over NJIT at the Fleisher Athletic Center. The victory, which enabled Penn (3-13) to become the 11th Division I program to record 1,700 wins, broke an eight-game losing streak.

For a time at the Pavilion Monday night, the holiday spirit took some interesting turns. "They're running the same play!" one guy yelled Monday night at Villanova's defense. "Go inside!" a coach in the stands demanded. Once probably best known for a 51-game losing streak after making the jump to Division I, NJIT showed up with a new reputation - and a lifetime undefeated record against top 25 teams - after already pulling off the shocker of the college hoops season, a win at Michigan.

The "virtual reality" glasses Gov. Whitman wore yesterday made the computer simulation of the drive to Burlington County's new Technology and Engineering Center look real. The road may not have been real, but the center is now a virtual reality after nearly 12 years of planning. Whitman was the featured speaker at the dedication yesterday of the $11 million engineering center, a joint effort of Burlington County College and Newark-based New Jersey Institute of Technology. "This center is innovative, and it will help make New Jersey an economic powerhouse," Whitman said.

Just a year ago, Phillip Laplante wondered whether there would be enough students to fill the rooms of the New Jersey Institute of Technology's newly constructed building. Now, there are so many students and business events in the building that the school has had to rent additional space at a nearby office complex. And it's only the school's second year of operation. Enrollment this fall as well as last year has exceeded projections, said Laplante, dean of NJIT's engineering school in Mount Laurel.

His team is 12-0 and ranked No. 7 nationally yet Villanova basketball coach Jay Wright says there is plenty of room for improvement, especially after the last two games. And Wright is grateful for the breather the Wildcats will have over the next few days. "The last two games we were a little out of sync and I think a little break will be good for us," Wright said following Tuesday's 92-67 win over NJIT at the Pavilion. "We will come back with a little mini-camp before the Big East schedule starts.

Anthony Ochefu has seen the answers to the test. That's the benefit of having an older brother recently showered in local ticker tape and national glory. Inside NRG Stadium in Houston earlier this month, Anthony, a junior forward at Westtown, watched as his older brother, Daniel, helped Villanova capture a thrilling NCAA championship. "It was a great experience for me and my family," said Anthony, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward, whose recruiting stock is on the rise. "Nothing like it. " "Just reminded me of how much work is put into it," he said.

Villanova coach Jay Wright vividly remembers his team's game at Butler last season because it opened the "new" Big East Conference schedule and marked the first visit by Wright and the Wildcats to legendary Hinkle Fieldhouse. "My first thought is just an epic battle we played last year at Hinkle Fieldhouse, sold out, an overtime game, a great game that it was a thrill to be a part of as a coach," Wright said of the Cats' 76-73 win in Indianapolis.

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.
