Chris Martin scored a game-high 19 points and Stony Brook overtook visiting Lehigh, 71-50, last night for its third straight win. Bryan Dougher followed with 13 points for the Seawolves (4-3), who trailed 27-22 at the half but outscored Lehigh, 49-23, after the break. Desmond Adedeji added 11 points. Marquis Hall topped the Mountain Hawks (5-3) with 13 points, three more than Rob Keefer. A jumper by Zahir Carrington gave the visitors a 40-32 lead at 11:11 of the second half, and Stony Brook gained the lead for good with nine unanswered points on Adedeji's layup at 8:32.

Not a lot was at stake for the Villanova Wildcats last night. That's not how they played. Judging by the intensity the players and their screaming fans showed in a 78-35 season-opening win over Stony Brook at the Pavilion, the team may as well have been facing No. 1 Duke rather than a team just six seasons into being a Division I program. Season openers, no matter the opponent, are like that when a team is ranked fifth in the nation. "They could have taken some possessions off, and that's why I was really pleased," Villanova coach Jay Wright said.

Heather Bianchini, who started at third base last season as a junior and helped lead the Council Rock softball team to the Suburban One League National Conference Patriot Division title, has given a verbal commitment to play next season on scholarship for Stony Brook, an NCAA Division I school. An all-area selection by The Inquirer and an all-Patriot Division player, Bianchini hit .304 as the Indians' cleanup hitter. Bianchini, who expects to play second base for Stony Brook, made her commitment Monday.

OMAHA, Neb. - UCLA's Adam Plutko turned in a third straight strong start as the Bruins jumped on College World Series newcomer Stony Brook for five runs in the first inning on their way to a 9-1 victory in Friday's opener. The No. 2 national seed Bruins (48-14) sent 10 batters to the plate in the first against Tyler Johnson (12-2), who allowed a season-high seven runs in 21/3 innings, his shortest outing of the year. Jeff Gelalich's bases-loaded single opened the scoring, and Kevin Williams' two-run double off Jasvir Rakkar in the third made it 7-1. Pat Cantwell's homer accounted for Stony Brook's only run off Plutko (12-3)

OMAHA, Neb. - South Carolina is going for three straight national titles and Florida is the No. 1 seed. Yet all the talk at the College World Series is about Stony Brook and Kent State. Now that these upstarts have crashed the party, what will they do? The Seawolves of Stony Brook have gotten the rock-star treatment since their stunning super-regional victory at LSU and will be the fan favorites when they open Friday against No. 2 national seed UCLA (47-14). "People just want to hang out with us for some reason," centerfielder Travis Jankowski said Thursday.

NEW YORK - La Salle coach John Giannini enjoyed his first visit to Madison Square Garden, where he got to walk through the backstage corridors that he remembered from watching The Song Remains the Same, the 1976 film about a Led Zeppelin concert here. But Giannini drew much more pleasure watching the second-half performance of his team, particularly the inside scoring of Jerrell Wright, and a defense that helped the Explorers rally from a 12-point deficit and post a 65-57 victory over Stony Brook in the ECAC Holiday Festival tournament.

A week after suffering a loss in which it showed little energy or fight, Temple had plenty of both during a steamy day at Lincoln Financial Field. The Owls also received an unlikely boost from a midweek ping-pong tournament to defeat Stony Brook, 38-0, on Saturday before 22,296 in the sauna that was the Linc, where the game-time temperature was 93 degrees. Yes, the win was over a Football Championship Subdivision team, but Temple took nothing for granted a week after opening with a 28-13 upset loss to visiting Army.

Redshirt sophomore quarterback John Robertson wasn't ready to let Villanova's season spiral further out of control. Powered by Robertson's 140 passing yards and 119 yards on the ground, the Wildcats cruised to a 35-6 victory over Stony Brook in front of 11,617 fans at Villanova Stadium on Saturday. The Wildcats (1-2, 1-0 CAA) were eliminated from the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs last year by Stony Brook (1-2, 1-1). Villanova found itself at a crossroads entering the game.

The Eagles have agreed to terms with Stony Brook tackle Michael Bamiro, who was recently declared a free agent by the NFL after the NCAA denied him an extra year of eligibility. The 6-foot-8, 335-pound Bamiro is expected to sign a contract Wednesday and will report to training camp along with the rest of the Eagles rookies on Monday. Bamiro should have been eligible for the draft in April but avoided the process because of an apparent oversight. He wasn't eligible for the supplemental draft earlier this month because he was not an underclassman.

Sean "Champ" Chandler, Temple Owls safety, defensive star, lingered on the middle of the practice field Tuesday after former 76ers president and Philadelphian for the ages Pat Croce finished talking to the Owls about embracing life and maximizing each day. Chandler had a more specific reason to touch base. He has a strong interest in physical therapy as a career after football. He knew that was Croce's background. Chandler already knew about Croce? Chandler was 5 years old when Croce was on top of the world - or at least the Walt Whitman Bridge - with the Sixers in 2001.

Temple coach Matt Rhule says he doesn't know about the availability of all-American Athletic Conference running back Jahad Thomas for Saturday's game at Penn State. Thomas has missed the first two games with a dislocated thumb. "We are not sure," Rhule said Monday during a conference call with AAC coaches. "We will see if he is able to practice [Tuesday]. " A senior, Thomas rushed for 1,262 yards and 17 touchdowns last season. During last year's opening 27-10 win over Penn State, Thomas rushed for 135 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries.

During the week Temple coach Matt Rhule said he would work freshman Isaiah Wright into the rotation after not playing him against Army. Of all the newcomers, Wright has drawn the most raves from Rhule since the preseason. Wright was recruited as a receiver, but with Jahad Thomas missing his second straight game with a dislocated thumb, Wright played running back, rushing for 42 yards on seven carries in the 38-0 win over Stony Brook on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field. "Isaiah Wright is a true freshman and he has learned everything," Rhule said.

After losing its opener 28-13 to Army, the thought of Temple taking a Football Championship Subdivision team lightly this week is preposterous to head coach Matt Rhule. That team is Stony Brook, which visits Lincoln Financial Field Saturday at 1 p.m. and is coming off a 13-9 win over last week's No. 19 FCS team North Dakota. The Seawolves, who compete in the same Colonial Athletic Association as Villanova, traditionally have benefitted from Football Bowl Subdivision transfers. This year's roster includes eight former FBS athletes.

Not many units graded well during Temple's season-opening 28-13 loss to Army, and that includes the offensive line. It's an area that will need to be vastly improved when the Owls host Stony Brook (1-0) at 1 p.m. Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field. "It wasn't all five of them, but we kind of struggled at guard and center and we were OK outside at tackle," Temple coach Matt Rhule said. Quarterback Phillip Walker was sacked four times, after being sacked just 18 times in 14 games last year.

When the schedule was announced, it did not appear as if Temple would have a season-defining game in Week 2 against a Football Championship Subdivision school. Yet that could be the case when the Owls host Stony Brook in Saturday's 1 p.m. game at Lincoln Financial Field. After coming off Friday's surprising 28-13 loss to visiting Army, in which many of the Temple players appeared shell-shocked, the Owls (0-1) need to regain their swagger against Stony Brook (1-0). A win would point Temple in the right direction.

Temple football coach Matt Rhule said that tight end Colin Thompson and defensive end Jacob Martin likely won't play in Saturday's 1 p.m. game at Lincoln Financial Field against Stony Brook. Both suffered undisclosed injuries during Friday's opening 28-13 loss to visiting Army. "I doubt they will be available," Rhule said during Monday's American Athletic Conference call. Rhule also indicated the injury status of wide receiver Keith Kirkwood is uncertain. As for running back Jahad Thomas, who missed the opener with a dislocated thumb, Rhule said he won't play this week.

While the talent level has risen during his four seasons as head coach at Temple, what has really defined Matt Rhule's teams has been their toughness. Rhule defines toughness as digging deep when things seem to be falling apart. If that is the case, the Owls had plenty of opportunities to dig deep, but they ended up digging bigger holes for themselves during their 28-13 loss to a fiercely competitive Army team Friday night at Lincoln Financial Field. What disappointed Rhule more than anything was how the Owls were soundly whipped on both sides of the ball.
