Hall Forges On Minus Gause

NEWARK - Bobby Gonzalez broke the news to the Seton Hall men's basketball team at Friday's dinner, letting the players know that Paul Gause, the defensive stopper and team leader, had suffered a broken knuckle that likely would sideline him for at least a month. And he considered the situation he was facing, too, preparing for Saturday afternoon's game against Morgan State, which the Pirates would win, 89-81, with one eye already on the upcoming trip to Marquette and Pittsburgh.

Lsu Quintet of Rbs Is Hard to Handle

Rankings

Boys Top 25 1. Don Bosco (7-1)

Secaucus' Confidence Growing ; Balanced Scoring Key to Fast Start

Secaucus played its best game of the season in an opening-night victory over BCSL National Division rival St. Mary, and the 6-1 Patriots continue to ride the momentum from that win.

Leonardo Hits Stride ; Passaic V. Senior Wins 55 Hh

MADISON When Rebecca Leonardo announced to her family that she was going to go out for track and field as a freshman, her mother was pleased but had one caveat: "I don't want you hurdling."

Bergenfield Able to Flex Muscles at Quad

FAIR LAWN In the context of high school wrestling, Bergenfield junior Kadeem Reid has experienced sudden celebrity this past week.

Giants Plan to Prove Their Critics Wrong

TAMPA, Fla. Before the season started, Giants general manager Jerry Reese asked, "Why not us?" when talk turned to the possible NFC entry in Super Bowl XLII. Even though the conference appeared wide open, few took the first-year GM's comments as more than wishful thinking. Now the Giants get their chance to back their general manager's plea not to forget them come playoff time. To do so, however, they have to get over a hurdle that has tripped them the past two seasons. They have to win a wi...

Garrard's Run Saves Season for Jaguars

PITTSBURGH Never in the Steelers' 75 seasons had a team beaten them twice in Pittsburgh in the same season. The Jacksonville Jaguars beat history and the Steelers despite a memorable fourth- quarter collapse that nearly cost the visitors their season. Josh Scobee saved the game by kicking a 25-yard field goal with 37 seconds remaining and the Jaguars came back after squandering an 18-point lead in the fourth quarter to beat the Steelers, 31-29, Saturday night in an AFC wild-card game that ...

Seahawks Put End to Redskins' Run ; Three-Touchdown Burst Ends Doubt

SEATTLE In less than 2 fourth-quarter minutes, the Seattle Seahawks watched a 13-point lead turn into a one-point deficit. Nothing was going right they couldn't even catch a simple kickoff. "I was looking at the scoreboard like, 'What just happened?' " defensive end Darryl Tapp said. "But you just have to continue to play all the game through."

Davis Helps Celtics Defeat Pistons

Rookie Glen Davis scored a career-high 20 points, giving Boston's Big Three a huge lift in a 92-85 win over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night at Auburn Hills, Mich., a marquee game that lived up to its billing.

Triple-Double Trouble ; Captain Kidd, Carter Lift Nets to 5th Straight Win

ATLANTA The mustache Jason Kidd's teammates laughed at and said he should shave on Friday remained on the captain's face.
