THOSE WHO DON'T follow college hoops might have figured High Point, Drexel's opponent Wednesday night, was a cupcake foe. Incorrect. The Panthers (2-1) have won or shared the last three Big South Conference titles. John Brown, their 6-8 senior, has a resume highlighted by more than 1,700 points, 600 rebounds and 100 each of assists, blocks and steals. Brown and his squad lived up to their billing by pulling away from Drexel in the closing minutes for a 75-66 victory at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

Fittingly, since Central Bucks East had edged Quakertown by only a point eight days earlier, the rematch Saturday afternoon was likewise up for grabs until the end. This time, Quakertown, keyed by a defense that intercepted three passes in the final 7 minutes, escaped with a taut Round 2 victory. The 12th-seeded Panthers nipped the fifth-seeded and host Patriots, 7-6, in a District 1 Class AAAA first-round playoff at cold and windy First Lt. Colby Umbrell Field. "It's huge, especially after what happened the first time," Quakertown senior quarterback Tom Garlick said.

YOU MAY have heard that a couple of protesters rappelled inside Bank of America Stadium during "Monday Night Football's" Colts at Panthers game. They, reportedly, have an issue with fracking. But the real issue is security. How did four people, including Angela Vogel, 38, of Philadelphia, get more than 60 feet of rope, rappelling gear and a huge banner into a stadium that won't permit fans to bring so much as an umbrella or bottle of water to a game? On Tuesday, the Panthers' security staff said it is reviewing the incident in which two of the activists - Erica Madrid, 38, and John Nicholson, 29 - descended from an overhang in the upper level of the stadium, displacing fans from their seats for much of the third quarter.

When the Eagles have the ball After a three-interception outing last Monday, quarterback Sam Bradford must play better if the Eagles expect to escape Charlotte with a victory. The Panthers allow 241 passing yards per game, but they have eight interceptions in five games. Josh Norman is tied for the league lead in interceptions and has been one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL. The Eagles will miss wide receiver Nelson Agholor again because of an ankle injury. Riley Cooper did not practice last week because of a knee injury and is questionable for the game.

- Have the Eagles ever had a worse group of receivers? Discuss among yourselves while searching online for whatever happened to Todd Pinkston. - There is nothing sadder in the sport than a circle of players, taking a knee, silently praying around an injured teammate. But there the Eagles were in the first quarter, joined by the Panthers, as the doctors and trainers worked on Jason Peters. He was taken off the field on a cart, the Eagles' great left tackle, and taken in for X-rays.

The first 100-yard receiving game of Jordan Matthews' career came last November against Carolina, and it remains his finest game in an Eagles uniform. Matthews finished with seven catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns in a 45-21 rout of the Panthers. Entering another nationally televised game against Carolina on Sunday night, the Eagles could use a similar performance from Matthews. He is a key part of the Eagles' game plan each week, but he might have to carry more of the weight for the receiving corps this time.

A RUN-BASED offense against the Eagles' defense is a matchup Eagles fans should welcome. So I have my work cut out for me in explaining why I'm picking the Panthers this week. One reason is that it isn't a conventional run-based offense, in which Fletcher Cox can just sort through offensive linemen until he comes across a running back to pulverize. Quarterback Cam Newton has 50 carries - the same number as Ryan Mathews - and he has gained 225 rushing yards, only 20 fewer than Mathews.

PANTHERS (-3) over Eagles Nailed the Birds last week, but not gonna go back-to-back with them. The good news is, they get to play in front of the biggest TV audience on a Sunday night. But the bad news is, they have to play at Carolina. The Panthers are the picture of perfection so far this season with a 5-0 record (4-1 against the spread). Since head coach Ron Rivera turned the switch toward the end of last season at New Orleans, these Southern cats have not lost a game.

EAGLES DEFENSIVE coordinator Billy Davis called Sunday night's visit to Carolina a "big boy game. " Since the Panthers run the ball about 32 times a game and they have one of football's most dangerous tight ends, his point is easy to see. When it comes to defending opposing tight ends, Davis' defense has shown there are plenty of XXL slacks in their closet. When Ben Watson scored for New Orleans two games ago, he became the first tight end to reach the end zone against the Birds since Jack Doyle of Indianapolis in Week 2 last year.
