HEADLINE: A HISTORY OF HOOPLA - IN TOURNEY, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN - AND USUALLY
BYLINE: Steve Serby
HERE comes March Madness.
Here come 18 days that will captivate Hoop America and
capture imaginations from coast to coast.
Here come all the little schools, all the little
dreamers, that want to be Hickory High in the movie "Hoosiers."
Here come the dynasties - the Dukes, Kansases, Kentuckys,
UCLAs - seeking one more championship banner for their hallowed rafters. Here
comes Bobby Knight - but not in that red Indiana sweater this time. Here comes
Bobby Knight with Texas Tech.
Here come the buzzer beaters.
Here come the nets being cut down.
Here come the cheerleaders and the bands.
Here come the cheers of the victors and the tears of
seniors with no more college games to play.
Here come the office pools and the poor souls with the
gambling addictions and the bookies cleaning up.
The Michael Jordans don't play here anymore; they come
out of high school now and go straight to the pros and become millionaires,
whether they have a driver's license or not.
It doesn't mean the romance has gone.
The beauty of the NCAA Tournament is you can be a mighty
program such as Duke, the defending champion, and you can have one bad night,
against someone like Winthrop, or Hampton, or Central Connecticut State, and
you are packing your bags and going home.
The images are etched in our consciousness and
The late Jim Valvano, who Dared to Dream at North
Carolina State, dancing in glee in Albuquerque the night he shocked Houston's
Phi Slama Jama.
Rollie Massimino and Villanova playing that perfect game
to upset Patrick Ewing and Georgetown in 1985.
Looie Carnesecca and That Sweater embracing Chris Mullin
on St. John's way to that same Final Four.
The late Al McGuire, crying on the triumphant Marquette
bench after stunning North Carolina in his final game in 1977.
The stoic John Wooden and sky-hooking Lew Alcindor,
dominating everyone in their path.
Jim Calhoun and UConn upsetting Elton Brand and Duke for
the 1999 championship.
Michigan State's Magic Johnson whipping Larry Bird and
Indiana State in the 1979 championship game.
Loyola-Marymount's Bo Kimble shooting free throws to honor
Hank Gathers, his tragically-fallen former teammate.
Duke's Christian Laettner miraculously beating Kentucky
104-103 in overtime a decade ago in The Greatest Game Ever Played.
New York has given us unexpected first-round gallantry:
Fran Fraschilla and Manhattan College stunning Oklahoma
Jeff Ruland and Iona scaring Syracuse; Jay Wright and
Hofstra scaring UCLA.
Pete Carril and backdoor Princeton scaring holy hell out
Here comes St. John's and Marcus Hatten carrying the New York
banner alone this time.
Here come all the big-name coaches with their television
shows and sneaker contracts and basketball camps, and all the
"student-athletes" who are asked to shove their school books to the
background and don't make a cent.
Here come the great Mike Krzyzewski (Duke), the
irrepressible Knight, the white-haired Lute Olson (Arizona), the
cholesterol-challenged Rick Majerus (Utah).
Here come Roy Williams (Kansas) and Gary Williams
(Maryland) - no relation - and Bob Huggins (Cincinnati), desperate to get over
the hump and win that first national championship.
Here come glamour boys Jason Williams and Mike Dunleavy
(Duke), Juan Dixon (Maryland), Drew Gooden (Kansas), Tayshaun Prince
Under the bright lights of the national spotlight, some
will rise to the occasion and make names for themselves.
Some will be Danny Manning, single-handedly beating Billy
Tubbs and Oklahoma in the championship game.
Some will be Scotty Thurman swishing from downtown Little
Rock in the final minute of the 1994 championship game against Duke.
Some will melt under the pressure cooker.
Some will be Fred Brown of Georgetown throwing the ball
to the wrong team or Chris Webber of Michigan calling a timeout he didn't have.
March Gladness everywhere. Here comes March Madness.

was hit by a pitch. Freshman Maura Langan (Manasquan, NY) sacrificed the two
baserunners to second and third, and freshman Marina Ysaac (Queens Village, NY)
drew a walk to load the bases. Junior Candace Petrillo (New Windsor, NY) hit a

was not in time to get Farrelly as the Lady Jaspers took a 3-0 lead. Manhattan
added another run on an RBI single by Lafex, her third basehit of the game.

March 10, 2002 MANHATTAN MEN TO PLAY AT VILLANOVA ON THURSDAY IN NIT Jaspers Earn First Trip to NIT Since 1996
RIVERDALE, NY - The Manhattan College
men's basketball team has accepted a bid into the 2002 National Invitational
Tournament and will play at Villanova University on Thursday, March 14 at 7:30
PM. Manhattan will be making its first NIT appearance since 1996 and its fourth
in the last 10 years.
Manhattan enters the tournament with
a 20-8 overall record and is coming off an 81-74 loss to Fairfield in the
quarterfinals of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament in Albany,
NY. Manhattan finished with 20 wins for just the seventh time in the program's
97-year history. The Jaspers were crowned champions of the MSG Holiday Festival
held at Madison Square Garden in December, beating local rivals Fordham and Iona.
Manhattan also registered an 85-68 victory over BIG EAST powerhouse and
NCAA-Tournament bound St. John's University, also at Madison Square Garden. The
win over the Red Storm was the first for Manhattan since the 1976 season. The
Jaspers enjoyed a great deal of success in the first half of the season,
reeling off 12 consecutive victories, the third-longest winning streak in
school history. Manhattan also finished with a 12-6 record in the MAAC
Conference, and secured the No. 3 seed in the 10-team tournament.
The Jaspers are led by the backcourt
tandem of sophomore Luis Flores (New York, NY) and senior Von Damien
"Mugsy" Green (New York, NY). Flores, an All-MAAC First Team
selection, averages 18.9 points per game and has scored in double figures in 27
of Manhattan's 28 games. Green, a starter at the point in all 28 games,
averages 12.0 points and 4.8 assists per contest. Green and sophomore Dave
Holmes (Washington, DC) were both named to the All-MAAC Second Team. Holmes is
the team's leading rebounder at 7.7 per game, and averages just over 11 points
Manhattan owns a 12-8 advantage over
Villanova in the all-time series, but will be meeting the Wildcats for the
first time since the 1964-65 season. That year, the two teams met in the 1965
NIT, and the Wildcats edged the Jaspers, 73-71. Manhattan's last victory over
Villanova was during the 1947-48 campaign. The Jaspers are 6-17 all-time in the
NIT. Manhattan's last NIT victory came in 1992, when the Jaspers edged Rutgers,

ORLANDO, FL. - The Manhattan College
softball team lost to Central Florida 12-1 and George Mason 5-3 at the Rebel
Games in Orlando, FL this afternoon. Manhattan is now 1-4 on the season.
In the first game, the Lady Jaspers
managed just three hits and scored their lone run in the bottom of the second
on an RBI-double by freshman Margaret Lafex (Syracuse, NY). Central Florida

to 16-3 on the season. Julianne Soviero (East Setauket, NY) took the loss for
Manhattan, pitching 3 1/3 innings and allowing seven runs (only one earned) on
10 hits with two strikeouts.
Then, against George Mason in the
second game, the Colonials scored all of their runs in the first inning on four
hits, two walks and two Manhattan errors. Manhattan plated its three runs in
their half of the fifth inning. Jennifer Kamph (Ozone Park, NY), Candace
Petrillo (New Windsor, NY) and Kathryn Bentz (Westchester, PA) started the
inning with consecutive basehits to load the bases. Freshman Jennifer McCracken
(Wappingers Falls, NY) drew a walk, which scored Kamph, and the Lady J's added
another run on a Central Florida error. Senior Michelle Chiappa (Pearl River,
NY) capped the scoring with an RBI-groundout to pull Manhattan to within 5-3,
but the Lady Jaspers would get no closer. Candice Aulogia (New Windsor, NY)
took the loss for the Lady J's, working four innings while giving up all five
runs and striking out two. Kara Husband (Depew, NY) came in in relief for two
innings of work, registering two strikeouts and allowing just one basehit.
Manhattan returns to action tomorrow when
they take on Toledo at 4:10 PM followed by Indiana-Purdue/Ft. Wayne at 7:50 PM.

BRADENTON, FL. - The Manhattan
College baseball team saw its five-game winning streak come to an end as
Northern Illinois scored two runs in the top of the 10th inning and hung on for
a 5-3 victory over the Jaspers. Manhattan falls to 5-4 on the season.
Freshman Gary Diaz (Naugatuck, CT)
went 2-4 and knocked in a pair of runs, as the Jaspers were baffled at the
plate, managing just four hits on the afternoon. Junior Ryan Darcy (Levittown,
NY) started the game for Manhattan and went eight innings without allowing an
earned run. Freshman Philip Kuhner (Queens, NY) relieved Darcy, pitching a
scoreless ninth before surrendering two runs in the top of the 10th and took
the loss for the Jaspers.
Manhattan will look to get back on
the winning track tomorrow afternoon when they take on Indiana at 2:30 PM.

Manhattan, which won 20 games for the
first time in seven seasons but was eliminated in the first round of the MAAC
tournament, was among the local teams chosen for the NIT last night.
The Jaspers (20-8) will play at Villanova
(17-12) on Thursday night, the same day the NCAA Tournament begins.
Other area schools involved include
Wagner, which plays at Richmond Wednesday night; Syracuse, which plays host to
St. Bonaventure that night, and Rutgers, which will play at home Thursday
against Yale. While Rutgers lost only one game at home, Yale has some
impressive wins on the road this season, with victories at Penn State and
"They're not afraid to go on the
road," Rutgers coach Gary Waters said. "This team felt they could win
their tournament and go to the NCAA. It's an upstart team, the coach (James
Jones) has only been there two years." This is the first Yale team to win
20 games since 1948-49.
Rutgers, which was knocked out of the
Big East Conference tournament in the first round by Boston College, returned
to practice yesterday.
"They're ready to get back at
it," Waters said.
Syracuse became the first Big East
team to win 20 games and have a better than .500 record in the conference and
not make the NCAA field. The Orangemen have made 21 NCAA Tournament appearances
in coach Jim Boeheim's 26 seasons.
Still, it was not a surprise. Despite
four wins over teams that are in the tournament, the Orangemen lost nine of
their final 13 games and did not resemble the team that began the season 16-2
and was ranked as high as eighth in the AP Poll.
"We were completely eliminated
from consideration, I think, when we lost our last four games," said
Boeheim, whose Orangemen will be making only their fourth appearance in the
postseason NIT since Boeheim took over as coach in 1976. "You can't lose
your last four games. If we had won any one of those four games, we'd be in. We
have no one to blame but ourselves. We had to win some games and we didn't do
that. It's discouraging to be that close."

Good Evening, John:
1 Many things come to mind re 45,000
more federales in uniform,swaggering
down the halls and being obnoxious to those few of us who still pay taxes. I
have to be in Ft. Liquerdale next month and we are supposed to fly. I may be
arrested because if any thing tries to pat me down, I will not tolerate any,
repeat ANY, familiar monkey business. I have been known in my short lifetime to
lift a knee when annoyed.
2. My real interest is in
"newshound". I will endeavor to check out his material (if I do not
have a 'senior day or two'). I wonder what his thoughts were last September
when CinC, flanked by Tony Blair, promised on national television to root out
all terrorists and the countries that harbor and support them. The following
Saturday evening, at our bi-weekly dinner soiree, a charming young woman -
whose maiden name was Clark and whose married name is Furlong - enthused about
the future demise of the I.R.A. She was quite taken aback and remained very
quiet for most of the evening when I suggested that I totally agreed with her
as long as The Orange Order, the Ulster Defense League and the Protestant
B-Specials were similarly destroyed at the same time.
3. To speak as my IRC cousins speak,
"What is wrong with American 'Prods' that they do not realize that bombing
Catholic school kids is anathema to us, just as blowing up babies is anathema
to the people of Israel"?
4. Being a WAISC is a problem. It
colors judgment and makes decision-making a chore.
5. Keep up the good work, John.FNS sends
Robert A. Helm
[JR: Thanks for the encouragement.
Let see who we can send into a tizzy this week?]
I just wanted you to know that I
believe Judith Allen class of 1993 lost a brother, Richard, a NYC firefighter,
in the September 11th tragedy. His obituary was in the Daily News last week
(3/6?)Judy was a terrific person, very
close with her family.I lost touch with
her but we went to high school andMC
together (School of Business) and subsequently worked in public accounting
together at Coopers and Lybrand after graduation.My prayers go out to her and her family over
this tragic loss.I just thought the
Jasper community, especially those that knew Judy, might want to know.
Thanks. Joann Pignataro
[JR: It was a sad day affecting
everyone. I passed you what was on MCOLDB for Judith and I hope you found it
It’s very frustrating when all I see
is further governmental encroachment on our rights by extending into areas
where it has no business. Take the “water crisis” we are facing here in New
Jersey. All the bad actors – federal, state, and local – are involved.
Additionally, a slew of “regulators” – the unelected government -- are
involved. I don’t think you can have a shortage unless the government is
involved. If water was a free market, the price would go up. People would make
choices. And the supply would always be adequate. Just like there is never a
shortage of cheeseburgers at McDonald’s, when the government is involved there
always has to be a crisis.
