PITTSBURGH - So, when was the last time Villanova and Pittsburgh met when neither team was in the Top 25 (or, for that matter, really anywhere near it)? Maybe back in the old Eastern Eight days. These days, they're headed in opposite directions. Pitt, which has made the last 11 NCAA Tournaments, has now won four straight after losing the eight before that while dealing with injury issues, particularly to point guard Tray Woodall. The Panthers (15-9, 4-7 Big East) beat Villanova (10-13, 3-8)

PITTSBURGH - Officials overseeing a closed Roman Catholic church say someone, somehow, stole the building's organ - and the 200 massive pipes required to play it. Skip Hary, business manager of St. Justin's Church, said he was baffled that anyone could get the organ out of the building. He said it would either have to be maneuvered down narrow flights of steps or lowered over a balcony. The pipes could only be accessed by a ladder into the ceiling. There were no signs of forced entry, police said.

PITTSBURGH - Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, whose chance political ascendancy made him one of the youngest heads of a major American city, announced Friday that he would not seek reelection, just 11 days after saying he would. Ravenstahl, 33, has held office since 2006, when, as City Council president, he rose to fill the position when Bob O'Connor died. Controversy and criticism continue to build following revelations that the Police Bureau's Special Events and Finance Offices were under investigation by the FBI and IRS. Deputy Police Chief Paul Donaldson said he believed federal authorities were investigating misappropriation of funds.

CANTON, Ohio - Willie Roaf was in an unfamiliar role - the center of attention in front of a large crowd, being singled out for something good. No, make that something great. With current Saints players standing and cheering, the former New Orleans offensive tackle led a charge of linemen into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night. Four linemen were included - Roaf, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, and Dermontti Dawson - along with running back Curtis Martin and 1950s cornerback Jack Butler.

PITTSBURGH - About 7 minutes. That's all the Flyers needed to hang on. Clinging to a 1-0 lead, the Flyers were 7 minutes away from kicking off their playoff push with an important two points. Seven minutes away from ending Pittsburgh's precious 11-game winning streak for the third season in a row. Seven minutes away from surviving a hellacious third-period onslaught against a team that is now tied for the league lead in wins when trailing after two periods this season.

PITTSBURGH - Villanova couldn't close the deal with Pittsburgh in regulation Sunday, and the 23d-ranked Panthers came through in overtime behind James Robinson and Talib Zanna for a 73-64 Big East victory over the Wildcats at the Peterson Events Center. The Wildcats (18-12, 9-8 Big East), who never trailed in the second half, held a 57-54 lead after JayVaughn Pinkston hit a free throw with 59.5 seconds to play. But Robinson knocked down a wide-open three-pointer with 33.3 seconds remaining, and Villanova couldn't come up with the game-winner on its last possession.

The NFL is reportedly looking into the actions of Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin, who appeared to impede the progress of Baltimore kick returner Jacoby Jones during the Ravens' 22-20 win over the Steelers on Thanksgiving night. After the Steelers had scored in the third quarter to make it 13-7, Jones fielded the kickoff at his own goal-line and took off on what looked like a sure touchdown, running past every Steeler on the field. Every Steeler player , that is. Tomlin was standing on the white stripe that borders the field, facing away from the play, as Jones sped up the sideline.

It took Pittsburgh's offense 4 minutes and 43 seconds to set the tone. It took 10 plays, 99 yards, and a couple big runs from Quadree Henderson and James Conner. They made it look so easy. And it was that easy for the Panthers to score on their opening drive, that easy to silence the Penn State sideline, that easy to start the 97th game of an intrastate rivalry with a statement. "That is unacceptable," Penn State safety Malik Golden said. "That was tough, to be honest with you. We weren't really expecting that.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The noise was deafening inside Holuba Hall, and it wasn't the usual practice playlist of rock and country music. On Wednesday night, it was the University of Pittsburgh fight song that blared through the speakers at Penn State's indoor practice facility. Clearly, this week required a different kind of energy. Over the last few days, coach James Franklin has tried to downplay the hype surrounding Saturday's revival of an intrastate rivalry with the Panthers.

STANDING in the hallway outside the Gene Hart press box, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall pointed out that any meaningful game at this stage of the season is good experience. Well, the Flyers are about to have a very educational weekend. Thursday night's loss to the Maple Leafs, the NHL's worst team, would have been more dismal if not for Wayne Simmonds' goal in the final minute. The point the Flyers earned by forcing overtime allowed them to maintain control of their postseason hopes, albeit precariously.

President Obama on Tuesday nominated the chief of appeals for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Pittsburgh to fill the sole remaining vacancy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. If confirmed by the Senate, Rebecca Ross Haywood, 47, of Wexford, would become the first African American woman to serve on the Third Circuit. She would fill the seat vacated when Judge Marjorie O. Rendell took senior status in July. The recommended appointment is Obama's sixth nomination to the court, which hears appeals of federal cases from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
