NEW ENGLAND NOTEBOOK
Minutemen can't rest for even a second tonight
By Marvin Pave, The Boston Globe Staff, 1/21/2004

If the University of Massachusetts ends its six-game losing streak tonight in Philadelphia, it may well be the team's biggest regular-season Atlantic 10 win since Steve Lappas, now in his third season, took over as head coach. That's because the opponent is undefeated and third-ranked Saint Joseph's (15-0), which is 5-0 in the conference compared with UMass's 0-4.

The Hawks, who feel they have the best guard combo in the country in Delonte West and Jameer Nelson, have outscored opponents by an average of 15.1 points per game and can tie the school record for consecutive victories (16, set in 1964-65). UMass has the distinction of having the best start in A-10 history when it went on a 26-0 run in 1995-96.

UMass's probable starting lineup includes three freshmen and one sophomore, leaving Lynn's Anthony Anderson as the veteran presence on the floor. The senior guard, who is averaging 14.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.6 assists, will face quite a challenge along with his teammates. Saint Joseph's, which has attained its highest national ranking in the Associated Press poll since the same week (Jan. 18) 38 years ago, is one of three unbeaten teams in the nation and ranked behind only Duke and Stanford.

The Hawks knocked off host Xavier last Saturday, 81-73, when West went 12 for 12 from the field and hit all six of his free throws en route to a game-high 33 points. Backcourt mate Nelson added 28 points, and with their combined 23 baskets and 7 assists, the dynamic duo had a hand in every one of their team's 30 field goals.

West was named National Player of the Week by The Sporting News and ESPN.com and was the A-10 and Big 5 Player of the Week. He also tied the school record for field goals without a miss set by Bryan Warrick against North Carolina-Charlotte Jan. 16, 1982 and set an A-10 record by eclipsing an 11-for-11 outing by Rhode Island's Kenny Green Jan. 18, 1988.

"What you saw today," proclaimed Saint Joseph's coach Phil Martelli after the Hawks' first win at Xavier in 31 years, "was the best player in America [Nelson] and the best backcourt in America."


Struggling Minutemen at No. 3 Saint Joseph's
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 1/21/2004

More misery appears to be on the horizon for the University of Massachusetts men's basketball team as the struggling Minutemen will try to end their six-game losing streak against a team on a 15-game winning streak. The national buzz around Saint Joseph's has been whether the Hawks can go undefeated. Ranked No. 3 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, Coach Phil Martelli's squad is now one of just three teams left in the nation with perfect records.

They will put that mark on the line at 7 tonight against UMass at Hawk Hill.

The recipe for perfection has been simple. The Hawks score the most points (75.7) in the Atlantic 10, give up the fewest (60.5) and hand the ball to the best player in the Atlantic 10, and maybe America, every night.

When Jameer Nelson came back to St. Joe's, after considering the NBA, this was the type of year he dreamed about having. He's in the A-10 top 20 in every significant category except blocked shots, with 20.8 points (No. 3), 4.8 assists (No. 4) 3.27 steals (No. 3) and 5.1 rebounds (No. 19).

Nelson's the leading candidate to take home a heavy collection of National Player of the Year hardware. Saint Joseph's has been in first place in the Atlantic 10 East every day of Nelson's career.

''He definitely, without a doubt, means the most to his team,'' UMass coach Steve Lappas said. ''He might be the best player in the country.''

Nelson is hardly flying solo. His running mate junior Delonte West was ESPN's National Player of the Week last week after hitting all 12 shots he took in a 33-point effort at Xavier. West is averaging 18.4 points per game.

The Hawks aren't as scary inside, at least offensively, but sophomore center Dwayne Jones is averaging 7.9 rebounds and 2.5 blocked shots per game.

Lappas knows the Minutemen's margin for error is microscopic, but believes his team can win.

''Of course. Certain things have to happen, but we can win,'' he said. ''We have to play very, very well on both ends. They create a lot of offense off their defense. We need to play well on the offensive end which will help control their offense.''

Playing well on offense will be difficult. Saint Joseph's' ball-pressure style has produced a league-best 9.4 steals per game and the Hawks have forced their opponents into 18.3 turnovers a game. They will likely try to rattle the UMass rookies.

''If they steal and get transition and force us into quick shots, that could really hurt us,'' Lappas said. ''We're concerned. If we're unable to play offense the right way, it will really hurt us on the defensive end of the floor.''

With Gabe Lee still out with his ankle injury, the Minutemen will move Jeff Viggiano back into the starting lineup at power forward. Freshman Stephane Lasme, who started Sunday against Duquesne, will come off the bench.

Lappas said even if the Minutemen don't deliver the upset, good things can come from this game.

''For the young guys, there are things you can build off,'' Lappas said. ''There are no moral victories against a regular team. If you're playing the No. 3 team in the country on their court, if we can go out there and play a good game, not that it's a moral victory, but you'll feel like you're making some steps in the right direction. We have so many young guys, we do have to look at it somewhat objectively like that.''

NOTES: The Minutemen will try to avoid their first seven-game losing streak since they ended the 1981-82 season with nine straight losses. That streak stretched to 13 games with four losses to begin the 1982-83 season.

UMass: No shot vs. St. Joe's
By George Miller, The Boston Herald, 1/22/2004

PHILADELPHIA - In late December, UMass went down the same road against then-No. 1 UConn. Last night, the Minutemen found out just how unbeaten Saint Joseph's has played its way up the charts to a No. 3 national ranking.

The Hawks whipped a capacity crowd of 3,500 into a frenzy by making their first five shots, all from beyond the 3-point arc, and by building a 15-0 lead in the game's fifth minute. Late in the first half, Saint Joseph's led by 32 and then, with 14 minutes left to play, pushed the advantage to 41.

At the end, the Hawks had themselves a 92-67 brushoff of the floundering Minutemen at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse.

Pat Carroll hit six 3-pointers and finished with a game-high 20 points, while the All-American guard tandem of Jameer Nelson and Delonte West performed unflappably for the Hawks (16-0, 6-0 Atlantic 10).

West scored 19 points on 7-of-8 shooting and extended a personal streak to 19 straight made field goals before finally missing a shot. Nelson added 13 points, seven assists and four steals to the Hawks' cause.

St. Joe's and Stanford are the only two unbeaten teams in Division 1.

``When they shoot the ball like that, you've just got to ride it out,'' UMass coach Steve Lappas said. ``They have so many guys that can make them. If they miss a few in a row, they don't sweat it - their defense takes a lot of pressure off their offense.''

Rashaun Freeman (17 points, 12 rebounds) and Jeff Viggiano (12 points, 10 boards) each finished with double-doubles for the Minutemen.

UMass (5-11, 0-5) saw its losing streak reach seven games - the team's longest since a nine-game skid at the end of the 1981-82 season.

Within the first 4:21, Carroll hit three times from downtown while West and Nelson each added a trey. Art Bowers (10 points) finally got UMass on the board with a free throw at the 15:13 mark. The Minutemen's first field goal came with 6:18 gone in the game, on an Anthony Anderson 3-pointer.

``The effort at the beginning of the game was significant,'' Hawks coach Phil Martelli said. ``This team is level-headed and calm about things. This group will let me bark at them and not have that, `My dog just got run over look.' ''

Saint Joseph's rolled right on to leads of 47-15 and 49-17 before settling for a 50-23 halftime bulge, thanks to 9-of-18 accuracy from 3-point land. For the game, the Hawks shot 50 percent from the field and hit 14 3-pointers.

A St. Joe's student even got into the long-distance act during a first-half timeout, dropping in a halfcourt shot on the third try to win free textbooks for the upcoming second semester.

Nelson scored 10 points in the first four minutes of the second half as the hosts salted away the game.


Saint Joseph's crushes UMass
By Joe Burris, The Boston Globe Staff, 1/22/2004

PHILADELPHIA -- Best-laid plans for a major upset, meet oncoming train.

Anthony Anderson gets taken aback by Jameer Nelson's move.
Third-ranked Saint Joseph's scored the game's first 15 points against Massachusetts last night on five 3-point baskets -- three within 50 seconds. That was before Saint Joseph's guard Jameer Nelson, arguably the best player in college basketball, took command of the Hawks' offense and began threading no-look passes through the Minutemen defense.

Nelson showed that it's possible to play at a level well above everyone else on the floor and score just 3 first-half points. He had much to do with his team's 50 first-half points and its 27-point lead at intermission.

Never mind upset -- the Nelson-led Hawks thwarted any UMass hopes of a close game, and the Minutemen discovered how far removed they are from the Atlantic 10's best team after being routed, 92-67, before a SJU Fieldhouse crowd of 3,200.

Nelson scored 10 of the Hawks' 17 points to start the second half and finished with 13. He and teammate Delonte West (19 points on 7-for-8 shooting) left the game with 12:44 remaining, with the Hawks ahead, 74-35. West had his consecutive-field goal string snapped at 19 when he missed an attempt at the 13-minute mark. Pat Carroll had a game-high 20 points on 6-of-7 shooting from 3-point range to lead Saint Joseph's (16-0, 6-0). With Cincinnati's loss to Louisville last night, the Hawks are one of only two unbeaten teams in Division 1, along with Stanford.

It was the seventh consecutive defeat for UMass (5-11, 0-5); five of those losses have been in double figures. And the 50 first-half points it allowed was second only to the 55 yielded to top-ranked UConn Dec. 30. "Coach [Steve Lappas] said it to us over and over that what they were going to do was give us a knockout punch right at the beginning," said UMass guard Anthony Anderson. "That's what we were trying to avoid. But they've got great players from one to five. It's not much you can do. None of their shots were uncontested."Saint Joseph's led, 19-1, with 14:32 left and extended the advantage to 24-6 with 13 minutes left. And the rout was on. A free throw by West with 3:35 left gave the Hawks a 44-13 lead. UMass closed strongly the remainder of the half and pulled to 50-23 at intermission.

"You think it's their offense, but it's really their defense that takes a lot of pressure off their offense," said Lappas. "Even if they miss a few in a row they don't sweat it because they know they can stop you."

A layup by guard Tyrone Barley with 14:15 left gave the Hawks their biggest lead, 72-31. Moments later, Saint Joseph's coach Phil Martelli sat most of his starters.

"They have some really good young players," said Martelli. "[Lappas] always have a defensive game plan that is a little unique, but in this situation there's not much they're going to be able to do." Center Rashuan Freeman had 17 points and Jeff Viggiano added 12 for the Minutemen, who host Temple Saturday.


Hawks flatten Minutemen
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 1/22/2004

PHILADELPHIA - The ambush came from all directions. A Delonte West 3-pointer from the corner. A Pat Carroll trey off a steal. Carroll again from the shoulder. A Jameer Nelson pull-up three trailing the break followed by another Carroll long ball from in front of the University of Massachusetts bench.

Three is Saint Joseph's national ranking in both polls and Wednesday night it was also its primary weapon on offense. The Hawks hit five 3-pointers in the first 4 minutes and 21 seconds to take a 15-0 lead. Everything after that was essentially garbage time as the Hawks strolled to a 92-67 win at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse.

Another big loss was tacked onto Steve Lappas's UMass record.
''You have no choice but to try to stem the tide and we couldn't stem the tide,'' UMass coach Steve Lappas said.

''Coach told us over and over that they were going to come in and try to give us a knockout punch,'' senior guard Anthony Anderson said. ''That's what we were trying to avoid.''

The loss extended a collection of UMass losing streaks. The seven-game overall losing streak is the longest since the 1981-82 Minutemen lost their final nine games. UMass (5-11, 0-5 A-10) has lost nine straight A-10 games and seven away from the Mullins Center. Outside of a first-round win in the 2002 Atlantic 10 Tournament (over George Washington) Lappas hasn't won a game in Philadelphia since he left Villanova.

UMass will return home to play Temple at 2 p.m. Saturday. St. Joe's is now one of only two undefeated teams in the nation at 16-0 (6-0 A-10) as Cincinnati lost to Louisville Wednesday night.

''They have a shot to go undefeated for the season,'' Lappas said. ''I hope for them that they lose one along the way. I think that will help them (in the NCAA Tournament). I think that will take some pressure off them.''

The only drama left in the second half was whether West would ever miss a shot again and whether the Hawks would turn the game's ticket stubs into coupons for free cheesesteaks by reaching 100 points. West, who hit all 12 shots Saturday against Xavier, hit his five first half shots and his first two shots in the second half against UMass before his streak finally ended at 19.

West finished with 19 points, six assists and five rebounds, while Carroll added 20 on the strength of six 3-pointers. Nelson, who had just three points at halftime, finished with 13 points and seven assists.

''The one thing you hope is that they don't hit 3s against you,'' Lappas said. ''But they have so many guys that can make them.''

Rashaun Freeman led UMass with 17 points and 12 rebounds, while Jeff Viggiano added 12 points and 10 boards. In front of collection of family and friends who made the trip from his hometown of Wilmington, Del., Artie Bowers scored 10 points and had four assists. The Hawks denied Anthony Anderson shots, holding him to five points on 1-for-4 shooting.

Lappas was pleased with his team's effort despite its problems with execution.

''I thought we did some good things in the second half,'' Lappas said. ''We moved the ball much better. We had 20 offensive rebounds in the game. I thought we gave a good physical effort. Our mental effort was just fair. We let things happen that we worked on, but our physical effort was good. When I see 20 offensive rebounds, that tells you what kind of effort they gave.''

Despite the result, Saint Joseph's coach Phil Martelli praised the Minutemen.

''They have some really good young players,'' Martelli said. ''From a basketball point of view, what Steve Lappas does with his players is second to none. They always have a defensive game plan that's a little unique. In this situation, there's just not much that they're able to do. What happens as a young player is you get frantic. They're running in quicksand. But they're good young players.''

NOTES: Lappas juggled his lineup up again, starting Viggiano and Chris Chadwick instead of Maurice Maxwell and Stephane Lasme, sacrificing size for experience and ball handling. ... Temple's win over Penn last night gave John Chaney 699 career wins. He'll try to become the 16th coach in Division I history to win 700 games Saturday at UMass.

Best atmosphere in college hoop on Hawk Hill
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 1/22/2004

PHILADELPHIA - They don't build arenas that shake anymore.

Atmosphere gets replaced by comfortable seats, accessible concessions and better TV angles in pretty buildings named after banks. They aren't bad buildings, but they don't shake. Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse shook last night just before 7 p.m. as the owners of the line of vehicles that clogged up City Avenue prior to the game clapped, yelled and stomped as the bleachers vibrated underneath them.

For five more games, the cozy gym on Philadelphia's outskirts that houses the undefeated Hawks will remain home to the best atmosphere in college basketball.

Hawk Hill doesn't look like much. The American landscape is dotted with Division III gyms with more size and lavish accommodations. Most assistant coaches have bigger offices than coach Phil Martelli. But nobody can match the atmosphere in Saint Joseph's old barn right now.

Sure Allen Fieldhouse at Kansas and Cameron Indoor Stadium at Duke have more history and tradition to go with their fervent fan bases, but success at Kansas and Duke is expected. Top five rankings there make the scoreboard page, not the front page as it did in Philadelphia for the Hawks.

When you've sat first class your whole life, the free drinks and warm towels aren't exciting anymore. But when most of your rides have been in coach, the front of the plane is nice.

That novelty isn't lost on the Hawk fans, a group that must include the fire marshal as the fire code is conveniently and thankfully forgotten by the fans standing against the back walls. They know they're witnessing something special.

The Hawks reward the masses with an extremely entertaining brand of basketball that has led to a perfect 16-0 start. Veteran good teams are so rare in college basketball today. Players leave school so frequently that it's hard to develop the kind of precision ball movement that the Hawks have regularly displayed.

It all starts in the backcourt with Jameer Nelson and Delonte West. Rarely are such good scorers so unselfish, but last night when the University of Massachusetts tried to take them out of the game early, both players repeatedly found Pat Carroll open for 3-pointers.

While Nelson will be a unanimous choice for All-American, coach Phil Martelli is campaigning for West to join him.

''No one wants to really believe you could have two All Americans on a team at St. Joe's,'' he said. ''I say 'Why not?' ''

His question is valid. You're not supposed to have a No. 3 ranked team here either.

Nelson has become a torchbearer for what's best about the college game. He passed up an early shot at the NBA for one more year on campus. Rarely does the best player in the nation play home games in front of 3,200 people, but rarely does a school like this get a player like that.

In addition to being a standout scorer, passer, defender and even rebounder for a guy under six feet, he brings a joy to the game reminiscent of former Michigan State guard Mateen Cleaves, who led the Spartans to the 2000 national championship.

The fans are sharing his joy, but they know this window is closing. St. Joe's can't replace Nelson any more than Xavier could replace David West or UMass could replace Marcus Camby. St. Joe's will still be a good program, but matching the run they're on right now would be nearly impossible.

But next year is a lifetime from now. With the Eagles out of the NFL playoffs, Philadelphia has become a St. Joe's town and its growing national presence should hit fever pitch in March.

Until then, Hawk Hill will savor the experience five more times. Five more chances to see Jameer Nelson in action. Five more chances to scare their opponents. Five more chances to shake.

Streaking easy
By Dick Jerardi, The Philadelphia Daily News, 1/22/2004

AN HOUR BEFORE the weekly blowout on Hawk Hill, Saint Joseph's assistant coach Monte Ross said: "How about we're 15-0 and we're getting better?"

Ross will get no argument from anyone associated with the Massachusetts basketball program. In another name-that-score rout of an overmatched opponent, the No. 3 Hawks scored the game's first 15 points last night, built up several 40-point leads that could have been 60 and, with their deep subs playing down the stretch against many of UMass' starters, won again, 92-67.

Make it 16-0 and 6-0 in the Atlantic 10. Make it a tie for the longest winning streak in school history. Make it nearly a second consecutive perfect shooting game by Delonte West, a breakout performance for shooter Pat Carroll and a casually brilliant night by point guard Jameer Nelson.

In 64 minutes, those three combined for 52 points, shooting 19-for-27 from the field and 11-for-16 from the arc. West and Nelson also found time for 13 assists and eight steals against one solitary turnover.

After his perfect dozen against Xavier on Saturday, West made his first seven shots last night before finally missing and topping out at 19 straight, six shy of the NCAA record. He had missed his final shot against Fordham before going off on the greatest shooting spree in school history. And, while that was going on, he also quietly put together a streak of 30 consecutive free throws before he finally missed. That, too, is a school record.

Had he ever shot like this in an empty gym?

"Any time you're in the gym by yourself and you're shooting, you're going to hit a couple in a row," West said. "I don't think in a game I've been hitting shots consistently."

There is consistent. And there is never-miss.

Photo
Maurice Maxwell and the rest of the Minuteman defense couldn't stop Pat Carroll from scoring 20 points.
Carroll (season-high 20 points) made the decisive three-pointers in the comeback win at Xavier. Then, he went 6-for-7 from the arc last night.

"I left the Xavier game with a little bit of confidence," Carroll said. "It just carried over to this game."

Maybe it was the fact that older brother Matt Carroll, who played the first few months of the NBA season with Portland, was in the house. Whatever, Pat could not miss.

If the Hawks now are getting a dependable third scorer, look out below. UMass, under Steve Lappas, sometimes will try junk defenses, box-and-one and the like. Defenses like that give Carroll a license to shoot with no defense in the vicinity.

This was over almost as fast as it began. The Hawks missed three layups in the first 2 minutes. They are much more comfortable outside the arc, so they went there. In less than 150 seconds, they made five straight treys, three by Carroll, one each by West and Nelson.

UMass (5-11, 0-5) could not even think about running its offense. The Minutemen were chased out of everything they even considered. They missed their first seven shots and 14 of their first 15. Their leading scorer, freshman Rashaun Freeman, was surrounded every time he touched the ball and did not score for the game's first 15 minutes.

It was 15-0, 36-11 and 43-13. You get the idea. At the half, it was 50-23. In the last two home first halves, the Hawks have outscored their opponents, 98-35. Admittedly, Fordham and UMass do not exactly strike fear in any hearts, but that's still ridiculous.

The winning streak has not escaped Phil Martelli's attention.

"When you think of the people that have played here and coached here, that's a very significant accomplishment," the St. Joe's coach said. "I will reinforce it tomorrow when we begin our preparation for [St.] Bonaventure [Saturday] that it's OK in this case to be selfish and want that record for yourself."

With Pittsburgh losing at Connecticut on Monday and Cincinnati losing at Louisville last night, St. Joe's and No. 2 Stanford are the nation's only unbeaten teams. No. 1 Duke beat Maryland, 68-60, last night. Stanford (14-0) plays tonight.

At this very moment, the Hawks appear to have the A-10 badly overmatched. They lead the league in scoring offense and defense, scoring margin, three-point percentage, turnover margin and steals. They are second in field goal percentage, field goal defense and blocked shots. There are not many other categories.

After a first half during which he made several highlight passes, Nelson decided to take some shots in the second half. He said it was just a coincidence that they were from right in front of Joe Dumars, the Detroit Pistons' president of basketball operations. Nelson nailed them all.

"That wasn't planned," Nelson said. "They were just leaving me open. I was, like, 'Why are they leaving me open?' "

Why, indeed?

When it mercifully was over, Nelson gave Lappas a big hug. The former Villanova coach looks very much like a man in need of a friend.

"They are so unselfish," Lappas said. "When you've got a guy as good as Jameer, who doesn't care if he takes a shot in the first half and he could have taken any shot he wanted, that says a lot. "

Everybody knew this team would be good, but only a few expected this.

"I knew we had a special team from the start," forward John Bryant said. "It was expected of us. We never thought we couldn't get here. Now, that it's here, we just have to keep going with it."


At St. Joe's? Why not?
Hawks' glorious ride keeps on going
By Rich Hofmann, The Philadelphia Daily News, 1/22/2004

YOU TRUDGE IN from the unrelenting cold, in from the dark night and through the lobby and then the lights and the sounds hit you at once. And the warmth.

There are few athletic things like Philadelphia college basketball, which matters even when it doesn't. But when it does...when the Saint Joseph's Hawks are 16-0 and ranked No. 3 in the nation...you are not talking about a game or an opponent, but an experience.

And so, there is the Fieldhouse on Hawk Hill, as old and snug as ever. No one thought it would be much of a game last night, and it wasn't: Hawks 92, Massachusetts 67. The deficit was 25 points and it would have been 50 if UMass coach Steve Lappas hadn't left his starters in for an entire evening of torture.

Still, they came. Several hundred fans stood behind the last row of seats in the balcony - because this is a Catholic school, and there are time-honored Catholic school values, and one of them is that no one who is pure of heart (or holding a $20 bill in an outstretched hand) should be turned away if at all possible.

The students were back from the holidays with well-rested throats. They sang "Happy Birthday to You" to coach Phil Martelli's wife, Judy. They serenaded Joe Dumars, here to scout senior guard Jameer Nelson for the Detroit Pistons. They helpfully reminded the Minutemen that they had scored only one point in the game's first 5 minutes (Hawks 19, UMass 1). And a bunch of them wore cowboy hats and T-shirts bearing the words "Wild Wild West," in honor of Hawks guard Delonte West.

To which, West replied: "I guess I've got a fan club. I must be Clint Eastwood or something."

It is becoming a goofy, glorious ride. There is open talk in the media about the possibility of an undefeated season on Hawk Hill. It should be impossible, but sane people are now saying it.

The whole thing seems as if it should be happening in another place, in another time. And even if a night at the Fieldhouse does have an old-timey, feel-good, black-and-white quality about it, it still seemed impossible the Hawks ever could recapture the glory they lived in the 1960s and '70s - not at this small school; not in this world where the college football powers now dominate college basketball, too.

But it is happening and everyone can see it. Somehow, these are the good old days.

Photo
Phil Martelli's Hawks built up a big lead and starters like Jameer Nelson took most of the second half off.
"It's real," Nelson said. "I'm living it, so it's real to me. I always understood what we had in the preseason...but you don't ever look at the schedule and ask yourself if you could go undefeated."

In the middle of it all is this coach, this Phil Martelli, who always manages to pull off the neatest of tricks, to be proud without being prideful.

"People say, 'You're a self-promoter,' " Martelli said. "You're damn right I self-promote."

The subject of conversation at this point was West, who lives in the shadow of the great Nelson. Put it this way: Nelson is magical, West merely wondrous. On this night, West - who made 19 consecutive shots over the last two games - finally missed one in the second half. Martelli has touted this as a pair of All-Americas.

"Nobody wants to believe you can have two All-Americans at St. Joe's," he said. "I say, 'Why not?' "

It is the question Martelli has asked every day of his professional life: Why not? For him to be doing what he is doing at this school is astounding. In a college basketball world that has never been more competitive, he is in the midst of a 4-year stretch of seasons that rivals the greatest of great times here, the times of Jack Ramsay and Jack McKinney and Jim Lynam.

Now, the stage is his. Martelli has the team and the player and the ranking and the undefeated streak. The attention will come now in waves.

But he is still Phil. And so, after last night's game, he took the public-address microphone and addressed the crowd. He was doing a little promoting, reminding everyone that the Feb. 2 Holy War between the Hawks and Villanova will be shown on big screens at the Fieldhouse while it is being played a few miles down Lan-caster Avenue.

But there was a slight edge in his voice - because it is Villanova, and because of the Byzantine circumstances that led the game to be moved from the Palestra to the Pavilion (with an ill-fated stop at the Wachovia Center in between).

"This game should be played in only one place - the Palestra," Martelli yelled, and his next couple of words were drowned out by the crowd's roar.

"Here's what we want," he said. "We want this building full. ESPN will report to the world we have the best fans in America. Thank you."

And the crowd roared again. And the whole thing rolls on.


Sweet 16 for St. Joseph's
By Ray Parillo, The Philadelphia Inquirer, 1/22/2004

This may come as a surprise to St. Joseph's followers who have enjoyed their team's joyous run to glory this season, but somewhere beneath the thrills created by Jameer Nelson and Delonte West and the Hawks' rise to No. 3 in the polls has been a quiet concern about Pat Carroll.

Photo Photo
Delonte West got the best of Art Bowers.
What happened to the sweet stroke that made Carroll one of the deadliest three-point shooters in the country last season?

If last night was any indication, that question no longer is relevant.

Carroll came out blazing, draining his first four three-point attempts on his way to a season-high 20 points as undefeated St. Joseph's rolled over Massachusetts, 92-67, in an Atlantic Ten Conference game at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse.

With their 16th consecutive victory, the Hawks equaled a 39-year-old school record set by the 1964-65 team, which was coached by the legendary Jack Ramsay. With Cincinnati's loss to Louisville last night, St. Joe's and Stanford are the only remaining unbeaten teams.

"The 16 wins in a row is significant when you think of the people who have played here and who have coached here," Hawks coach Phil Martelli said. "I think it's all right for us to be selfish and want to break the record."

It was wise for the students who jam the section behind a basket to arrive early, because Carroll led the Hawks to a quick 15-0 lead. He ended up shooting 7 for 9 overall and 6 for 7 from three-point distance as St. Joseph's improved to 6-0 in the A-10.

"It looks like the light switch just went on for Pat," said West, who scored 19 points and extended his number of consecutive shots made to 19 before missing a three-pointer in the second half.

West, who shot a stunning 12 for 12 during a 33-point performance in Saturday's win at Xavier, made his first seven shots. Then he showed that no one is perfect - at least for two games in a row - when he missed an open jumper with 13 minutes, 8 seconds remaining in the game. He finished 7 for 8 and his streak of 19 straight baskets, a school and A-10 record, fell six short of the NCAA mark set by Ray Voelkel of American University in 1978. Voelkel did it over a nine-game span.

"Yeah, I was aware that I had a streak going," said West, who had six assists, no turnovers and four steals. "I think I was actually relieved when I missed, so the fans could relax." West also extended his school record of consecutive free throws to 30 before missing.

When West's three-point attempt in the second half went slightly off target, the St. Joe's student section gave him an ovation. In a tribute to West, the 6-foot-3 junior who was named the national player of the week by the Sporting News and ESPN.com, some students wore T-shirts with "Wild Wild West" inscribed below a sheriff's badge.

"I guess I have my own little fan club," he said with a smile. "I can be like Clint Eastwood."

Nelson, the all-American guard, added 13 points and seven assists, some of which brought the raucous crowd to its feet as the Hawks stretched their 15-0 lead to 44-13. They led by as much as 72-31. Martelli went deep to his bench early and often. No Hawk played more than 24 minutes. The loss was the seventh straight for the Minutemen (5-11, 0-5), who missed 15 of their first 16 shots.

Carroll, who shot 45 percent from three-point distance last season, went into the game hitting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc. Six minutes into last night's game, Carroll had more three-point baskets (four) than he had made in any other game this season. He surpassed his previous season high in scoring (13 points) before 12 minutes had elapsed.

Carroll said his confidence had gotten a boost when he made two critical three-point baskets at crunch time in the come-from-behind 81-73 win at Xavier.

"I've been struggling most of the season, so this felt good," the 6-5 junior from Hatboro-Horsham High said. "I think the Xavier game definitely helped my confidence."

Obviously, the Hawks will become even more difficult to beat if Carroll maintains the touch he showed last night.

"I think the floodgates have opened for Pat," Martelli said. "Those two threes he made at the end of the Xavier game kind of won it for us. He's worked so hard on his game. I'm happy for him."
