John O'Connor and Paul Hewitt were on the Villanova staff together for one year. O'Connor was the administrative assistant. Hewitt was an assistant coach. They became good friends. When Hewitt's Georgia Tech team got an invitation to play in the NCAA Tournament, the Yellow Jackets' head coach called O'Connor and invited him here to see Tech play against St. Joseph's today. Last Wednesday, O'Connor, a longtime assistant at Drexel, was fired along with second-year head coach Steve Seymour and the rest of the staff.

Trey Thompkins scored 20 points, Ricky McPhee hit two key baskets near the end and host Georgia pulled off its first big win for new coach Mark Fox, knocking off No. 20 Georgia Tech, 73-66, last night. Georgia, which had lost at home to Wofford and was coming off a 28-point blowout at Missouri last weekend, defeated a team with one of the most touted freshman classes in the country. It was a loss sure to turn up the heat on Yellow Jackets coach Paul Hewitt, who looked up at the scoreboard in disbelief as the Bulldogs (8-5)

Georgia Tech in the NCAA Tournament? The idea doesn't seem so ludicrous anymore. The host Yellow Jackets, picked to finish near the bottom of the Atlantic Coast Conference, knocked off another ranked team yesterday, beating No. 6 Virginia, 62-56, as Tony Akins scored 19 points and freshman Halston Lane hit two key baskets. First-year coach Paul Hewitt told his players from Day 1 that his goal was an NCAA bid, even though Georgia Tech hasn't been to the tournament since 1996.

Portland Trail Blazers rookie Sebastian Telfair said yesterday he was offered money during recruiting by someone who claimed to represent Georgia Tech, but wonders now whether it was a hoax. Telfair issued a statement through his agent, Andy Miller, which elaborated on the allegations made in a book that a Georgia Tech supporter offered the point guard $250,000. Yellow Jackets coach Paul Hewitt and Telfair denied the claims on Wednesday. Yesterday, the player put a slightly different spin on the alleged incident.

CHARLESTON, S.C. - St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli thought the biggest step his young team took came during halftime. That's when the Hawks aired out their first-half problems and came up with plans to fix it once play resumed. The result? A satisfying, 66-53 victory over Georgia Tech at the Charleston Classic on Thursday night. Carl Jones scored 21 points, Langston Galloway had all 15 of his points in the second half, and Hofstra transfer Halil Kanacevic posted a double-double to lift the Hawks (2-0)

Paul Hewitt just smiled. An instant after Georgia Tech had gone up on the big board Sunday, it was followed by St. Joseph's. Some might not have understood the implication. Hewitt knew instantly. "It must be the basketball gods," the first-year Georgia Tech coach said from Atlanta Sunday night. "It is a pretty funny matchup. " It is when you know Hewitt went to Villanova with Steve Lappas in 1992. It is when you know Hewitt was right there when Lappas and the rest of the 'Nova staff pulled off some of the great recruiting coups in Big 5 history.

LONG, LANKY, lefthanded and legit on the basketball court. That's a fair description of Constitution High senior forward Ahmad "J.R. " Gilbert. And after Wednesday's National Signing Day, you also can call him a George Mason signee. Interestingly, the 6-7, 190-pounder inked with the Patriots, in part, because head coach Paul Hewitt sold Gilbert on his similarities to a familiar southpaw. "When coach Hewitt sat down with me, he showed me clips of Thad Young and some of the stuff they did with him," Gilbert said via phone the night before he penned.

It's coming up on three years since Paul Hewitt stepped into a gym in Riga, Latvia, and glimpsed the player who perhaps best embodies the 76ers' still-distant future. On July 6, 2011, Hewitt was coaching the United States' team in the FIBA Under-19 World Championships, and the Americans had gone 5-0 before facing Croatia and one of the tournament's most curious attractions: a small-forward phenom named Dario Saric. Because Riga is less than 100 miles north of the Latvia-Lithuania border, Arena Riga would be packed for any game in which one of those two Baltic States was competing.

NEW YORK - As its media day began Tuesday, the Atlantic Ten put out its preseason poll. Quick scan for the locals . . . La Salle, third. Seems about right. St. Joseph's, fifth. Sounds fair. How far down is Temple picked? . . . Where is Temple ? There is no Temple, of course. (Momentary brain lock, even as I knew I was writing about Temple not being here.) St. Joe's coach Phil Martelli said he had the same fleeting thought as he waited for the train at 30th Street Station - "I wonder where Dunph is?"

Villanova's James Bell knew basketball when he traveled to Latvia last month to play with Team USA in the under-19 world championships. The food? Well, that was something else entirely. "I tried stuff here and there, but I tried to keep it within what I knew," Bell said Friday. "If I didn't like it, I wouldn't be disrespectful about it, but everybody has their preference. They had something that was almost like meat loaf. I want to say it was chicken, but it didn't look like something I wanted to eat. " Food aside, Bell, who is entering his sophomore year, experienced the good and the bad in the world championships, which ran from June 30 to July 10. After a 5-0 start, the U.S. team lost back-to-back games and wound up finishing 7-2 and in fifth place.
