NEW YORK - The crowd at the Barclays Center was in stunned silenced, looking at a referee lying on the floor after the opening tipoff of Vanderbilt's 68-55 win over La Salle in the consolation game of the Barclays Center Classic on Saturday. There was about a 10-minute delay as referee Rick Crawford was taken off the court by stretcher to Brooklyn Hospital. As horrifying as it looked, Crawford had comforting words when returning to the arena by game's end. "I am good," he said.

BLUE JAYS pitcher J.A. Happ was hit in the head by a line drive and taken off the field on a stretcher during Toronto's 6-4 win over the host Tampa Bay Rays last night. In a frightening scene at Tropicana Field, Desmond Jennings' second-inning liner caromed squarely off the left side of Happ's head, and the ball went all the way into the bullpen in foul territory halfway down the rightfield line. Happ dropped face down at the front of the mound, holding his head with his glove and bare hand.

The Navy won the first event, this morning at the Rocky Steps, because the Army had trouble opening a stretcher. This wasn't your typical touristy Stallon-style ascension at the Art Museum. After 50 push-ups and jumping-rope reps, squads of four - including men and women - raced up the steps carrying a dummy on the stretcher. At the top, a flag was waved, to signal each team's other four members to repeat the entire drill. Then everybody took off running to the next event in the annual Patriot Games - a mock military mission at 10 a.m. outside the Independence Visitors Center, Sixth and Market Streets.

After winning a biggest-loser contest at her church, Myra Garcia of Trenton was dismayed when her stomach started growing for no reason this year. A "prophetess" who visited the church urged Garcia, who felt just fine, to seek help. The next week, she started feeling tired and nauseated, and went to a doctor. A series of medical tests came up with an unusual explanation: a type of "benign" tumor that rarely grows beyond a couple inches wide had engulfed the right side of her liver.

'I'LL BE BACK," Ellis Hobbs said. He was walking out of the Eagles' locker room, flanked by a couple of club employees, wearing a leather jacket and a neck brace. Injured players generally don't do interviews after games, but Hobbs shared those three words with ESPN's Sal Paolantonio early this morning as he moved toward the door. I'll be back. Brave. Hopeful. Football player. Two hours earlier, Hobbs lay face down, not moving, on the turf at Lincoln Financial Field.

Alonzo Mourning refused to leave on a stretcher what might have been the last game of his career. After tearing the patellar tendon in his right knee in Miami's 117-111 overtime loss at Atlanta last night, the veteran Heat center was placed on the stretcher, but he refused the ride. "That's not the way I envisioned myself, walking off the court for the last time in my career," said Mourning, 37. "I've been through so much in my life. If I had to crawl off the court I would have.
