Call off the Shawn Bradley alert. The 76ers' 7-6 center isn't hurt as seriously as initially feared. Bradley, injured in the fourth quarter of Monday night's 109-104 loss to Seattle, has been diagnosed as having a first-degree sprain of his right knee. Result: After some therapy in a swimming pool and some range-of-motion testing, he could be available to play tonight at the Spectrum against Washington. A first-degree sprain is the least serious type. "I'm optimistic," said Sixers coach and general manager John Lucas.

So much for keeping the Class AA boys' state title in the Public League. Strawberry Mansion hoped to duplicate Prep Charter's state-championship success from the last two seasons. Jeannette had other plans. The Jayhawks took a 76-72 overtime victory over the Knights during yesterday's PIAA state final at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center. In the process, Jeannette (25-4), which is 25 miles east of Pittsburgh, became the third school in PIAA history to win football and basketball titles in the same school year.

Rancocas Valley made six straight free throws in the first two minutes of overtime yesterday and held on to defeat Kennedy, 81-78, in a Burlco-Liberty game marred by 46 turnovers and 57 personal fouls. The victory lifts Rancocas Valley to 20-2 overall, 11-2 in the conference. The Red Devils are tied for first place with Willingboro. Kennedy (16-5, 9-4) fell from contention with the loss. "I am really proud of the way our kids handled themselves today," said Red Devils coach Ron Powell.

The mission for Villanova at the Red Lobster Classic had little to do with holiday sun and fun and a lot to do with turning around its season. And last night, the Wildcats may have done so. For the second straight night, they prevailed in a thriller, this time upsetting Florida State (No. 10 AP, No. 12 UPI), 68-67, before 6,207 at the Orlando Civic Center for the tournament championship. Freshman Chris Walker hit two crucial free throws with 12 seconds remaining and the Cats held off a late charge to become the second straight Big East team to win the title here.

Dwayne "Sugar" Hill's greatest accomplishment was keeping his hands to himself. Forty-one personal fouls were called in a whistlefest that passed for a semifinal in the 33rd annual Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament last night at Frostburg State University. Hill, Roman Catholic's 5-8 senior point guard, somehow was guilty of only two. "It's always like this on the road," he said. "Here and in Virginia, the game's always stopping. "Every little thing gets called.

It was only appropriate that a game dominated by personal fouls was ultimately decided from the free-throw line. Cardinal Dougherty connected on 18 of 22 foul shots in the fourth quarter Sunday afternoon to beat host Bishop Egan, 73-60, in a Catholic League Northern Division game. The win lifted Dougherty to 3-0 in the league and 10-2 overall. Egan fell to 0-2 in the league and 3-8 overall. "We stress foul shooting to our kids," said Cardinals head coach Mark Heimerdinger.

Savon Goodman said a combination of things led him to transfer from Academy of the New Church to Constitution. One of the factors, the Division I recruit said, was the chance to play with savvy guard and middle-school friend Daiquan Walker. "With his quickness and ability to run the floor, he takes a lot of the pressure off me," Goodman said. "It's a lot of fun playing on the same team. " On Tuesday, in a Public League Division A boys' basketball game at Frankford, Goodman and Walker combined for 45 points and the Generals overcame first-half foul trouble and fought past the Pioneers, 66-57.

One of the principles of what Jay Wright calls "Villanova basketball" is that a team should be locked in at the defensive end, never reluctant to try to stop an opponent from scoring no matter the foul situation. This rule will be tested tonight in the NCAA national semifinal game when North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough, the all-time leader for free throws made, brings his unique foul-drawing skills to Ford Field. The 6-foot-9 forward has deposited 968 free throws in his stellar career with the Tar Heels, 235 of them this season.

Indiana guard Travis Best thinks he can stay with Allen Iverson, but he has to stay off the bench to get the chance to prove it. Best, plagued by personal fouls throughout the playoffs, fouled out Monday night. In four postseason games now, Best has been whistled for 19 fouls in just 54 minutes, an average of one foul roughly every 2 minutes, 50 seconds. "I know all of them weren't [legitimate]," said Best, who got six fouls against the 76ers in just 13 minutes. "A lot of them were touch calls.

Where's Theo? Theo Ratliff came off the injured list yesterday, but neither Ratliff nor the Sixers really have any idea where he is. There were certainly no answers in his box-score line after the 76ers' 123-112 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves: 11 minutes, no points, two rebounds, six personal fouls, five turnovers, 0-for-1 from the floor. "He was awful," Sixers coach Larry Brown said, "but I expected it. "He hadn't played. I don't think he took a breath, he was so tight.

YOU DON'T think of 64-63 games as offensive masterpieces, but that is exactly what went down when Syracuse beat Wisconsin by exactly that score in Thursday's first East Regional semifinal in Boston. There were just 52 possessions in the game. In a typical Wisconsin game this season, that would have meant its opponent scored just 45 points, as the Badgers gave up 0.86 points per possession. The 'Cuse scored 1.23 points per possession and needed every one against a team that almost three-balled it out of the tournament.

What Villanova and Louisville wrought last night at Freedom Hall was ugly yet captivating, slow yet fascinating, a game that made basketball purists cover their eyes but peek through their fingers to catch a glimpse. When it came to basic basketball, however, no one did it better than Scottie Reynolds. The Wildcats' senior leader scored 30 of his 36 points in a wild second half that rallied the fourth-ranked visitors from a 17-point deficit to a 92-84 victory over the Cardinals before a sellout crowd of 20,076, about 99 percent of whom wore white.

On Sunday, Los Angeles Clippers center Chris Kaman told the Los Angeles Times that Denver Nuggets forward Reggie Evans grabbed his testicles and "pulled hard" during the second quarter of Game 4 of their Western Conferece playoff series on Saturday. Yesterday, Evans was fined $10,000 and assessed a flagrant foul penalty two by the NBA for his actions. He was cited for "unnecessary and excessive contact" and had his penalty upgraded from the technical originally called. Kaman reacted by shoving Evans and received a flagrant foul, which was downgraded to a technical yesterday.

It's as if Rocky Balboa abandoned the Art Museum's steps and ended his workouts by scaling the Jefferson Memorial Arch instead. It's as if Tastykake relocated here, and Pat's suddenly replaced cheesesteaks with toasted ravioli. Bill Cosby, as beloved a Philadelphia icon as Ben Franklin, is in league with the enemy. The North Philadelphia-born comedian, a graduate of Germantown High who attended Temple University, a fixture at Philadelphia sporting events from 76ers games to the Penn Relays, is a member of the Honorary Advisory Board of, gasp, the St. Louis Rams.

Welcome to Broadway in the Block, a down-low drama in four acts. It's a tale of human conflict, of two men's great desire, and of life's never-ending battle for turf. By now, anyone watching these NBA Finals is familiar with its perspiring stars, the Lakers' Shaquille O'Neal and the 76ers' Dikembe Mutombo. O'Neal is the bullying bulldozer in short pants. Mutombo is, depending on your point of view, a flopper or a fortress. O'Neal shoves, Mutombo resists. O'Neal twists his arms, Mutombo tumbles.

The husband of Stephanie V. Gaitley, the women's basketball coach at St. Joseph's University, resigned as an assistant coach with the team after last season amid allegations he had been sexually harassing one of the school's players. A university source told the Daily News that Francis P. Gaitley was asked to resign in May as the result of an investigation begun when a player accused him of harassing her for more than a year. At the time, the university said Frank Gaitley was resigning to pursue other business opportunities.
