Jeremy Lawimore first earned his reputation as a scorer - witness that last summer he led the Sonny Hill Future League in scoring with a 19.9 average. Yesterday, Lawimore, a 6-1, 175-pound junior guard from Roman Catholic, expanded his reputation by starring on defense. Yes, defense. Showing both anticipation and hustle, Lawimore turned three fourth-quarter steals into assists as Roman - ahead, 29-21, after three - spurted past West Catholic, 47-32, in a Catholic South semifinal played at Monsignor Bonner.

Drexel's basketball team suffered a major blow with the news that leading scorer Damion Lee will miss the rest of the season with a broken right hand. According to a Drexel spokesman, Lee was hurt Saturday during an 83-73 overtime loss at Northeastern. It's not known when he suffered the injury, but Lee played all 45 minutes, scoring 30 points. He is a major candidate for Colonial Athletic Association player of the year. A 6-foot-6 junior, Lee is fourth in the nation and leads the CAA in scoring with a 21.4-point average.

St. Joseph's announced that senior point guard Carl Jones will not participate in the first three games, due to violation of the university's community standards. The suspension began with Thursday's exhibition game against Wheeling Jesuit. That means Jones will also miss Monday's home game against Yale and the opening of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic on Friday Nov. 16 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn against Notre Dame. Jones would be eligible to return the next night for either the championship or consolation game of the tournament.

Burlington City senior Jada Atchison has been such a dominant player for so long that her height is no longer in question. While the 5-foot point guard is always giving up size, she learned early in her high school career that teams can't guard a player they can't catch. And keeping up with Atchison is truly an arduous task. Atchison is much more than just a scorer, but her scoring has been an essential part of her career. After totaling 14 points in Friday's 47-36 win over visiting Riverside, she now has 1,875 for her career.

Carol Birnbohm, coach of the Cherokee girls' lacrosse team, figured she wasn't taking that much of a risk by putting a sophomore in to replace her leading scorer. After all, it was for only a couple of games. What harm could she do? As it turned out, inserting Cheryl Back into the starting role as an attack player last season may have been Birnbohm's best move ever. Back, now a 5-foot-6, lightning-quick junior with a deft shot, has been one of the most prolific scorers in South Jersey the last two years.

Great scorers in soccer are much like accomplished rebounders in basketball. Both are playing a game ahead of the real game, anticipating and moving and timing the ball as it heads toward the net. They are winning the mind game over everyone else around them. "Yeah, and sometimes you just get lucky," Strath Haven's Lori Kotzen said with a laugh. Kotzen's career with the Panthers, however, is more than mere luck. After knocking home a late goal to help the Panthers tie Great Valley, 3-3, on Monday, the senior striker has 75 career goals, the school record for either boys or girls at this District 1 soccer hotbed.

The last thing the Pitman boys' soccer team expected yesterday was a laugher, especially since the Panthers faced the daunting task of playing without their leading scorer against a team that had scored 21 goals in three playoff games. Yet in this season of firsts for Pitman, an anticipated state Group 1 semifinal battle turned into a showcase for the Panthers' depth, not to mention their offense and defense. Playing in a swirling crosswind at Zimmer Field, Pitman manhandled South River, 6-1, to earn its first state-final appearance.

1. Keep Carcillo. He can hit and score. 2. Put van Riemsdyk back in. He's the better scorer, and they need goals.

The American Hockey League yesterday announced that Phantoms forward Stefan Ruzicka has been suspended for five regular-season games as a result of his actions during a game at Bridgeport on Wednesday. Ruzicka, the Phantoms' third-leading scorer with 28 points on 11 goals and 17 assists, had an altercation with a Bridgeport player while both were in the penalty box at 18 minutes, 3 seconds of the second period. Ruzicka missed last night's game against visiting Hershey and will miss tonight's game at Bridgeport, Friday's game against Worcester, next Saturday's game at Binghamton, and the Feb. 6 game at Binghamton.

CHRIS FOUCH, Drexel's leading scorer, has been lost for the basketball season with a broken ankle.

He is 12-for-25 from three-point range this season.
