Give Nolan credit for trying to get things straightened out early in the second half, a time during which the Leopards have struggled, and on Saturday watched as point first-half lead was trimmed to just one early in the second half. It was the Bison, however, who thrived after the timeout, and rattled off a spurt that carried it in its win at Kirby Sports Center.
The Leopards weren't as sharp as coach Fran O'Hanlon might have hoped today but still rolled to a workmanlike victory over outmanned Navy at Kirby Sports Center. The bench, in particular senior Nick Petkovich and freshman Seth Hinrichs, provided a big lift for the Leopards overall, league. One of Lafayette's goals is to earn a home game in the league playoffs, so winning home games, especially the ones the Leopards are expected to win, goes a long way toward that mission.
Is this Leopards' corner-turning football class? It's the players you get that beat you. Lafayette wanted him very badly, but he wound up at Colgate.
For three years, he ate the Leopards' lunch on one afternoon each fall, piling up yards rushing against them. Injury kept him out of the Lafayette game in - and the Leopards won.

I figured Loose was giving us that old positive spin on the day when kids are making official the commitments they have verbally made earlier. He really didn't mean that, I thought. I couldn't get that comment out of my head, and maybe the year-old brain doesn't work as quickly as it used to. But I think I finally got it. On Sakowski's best days, the coach would expect even more from him.
At that point, it basically was a done deal -- Sakowski, of Chester, was headed to Lafayette. He verbally committed to the Patriot League school on Tuesday night and will sign his letter of intent on Wednesday. Needless to say, he felt compelled to lure him away from his Patriot League rivals. Crawford announced his intentions to play at Lafayette Wednesday, signing a national letter of intent. The multi-talented athlete chose the Leopards over Patriot League-foes Lehigh and Colgate on a full scholarship.
Temple also made an offer for him to play football at the FBS level. Crawford made his decision following an official campus visit to Easton last week. Carrollwood Day School's Deuce Gruden signs to play at Lafayette The Tampa Tribune It's still dark outside at this hour but there's a small crowd of family and friends gathered in the school's main lobby for senior quarterback Deuce Gruden.
And that family includes his mother, Cindy, and a famous dad, former Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden. Also on hand were grandparents Jim and Kathy Gruden. They were here to see something they all knew would happen one day, the signing of a college scholarship by Deuce. Despite his 5-foot-6, pound frame, the Patriots' quarterback, linebacker and any-other-position-needed Gruden is headed to Lafayette College in Easton, Pa.
And mom and dad couldn't be prouder. He hardly closed his eyes on Monday night. Keller had committed Monday afternoon to Lehigh on a football scholarship. By Tuesday morning, he had changed his mind and committed to Lafayette. When I decided to switch to Lafayette, it felt like a weight was off my shoulders. But Eagles' coach Jeff Jones says the senior forward is stepping into his role just fine. Then after Lafayette rallied to go ahead six minutes into the second half, Hinkle capped a run, first with a jumper, then with his fourth and final trey of the day and the Eagles were up Lafayette never got closer than four the rest of the way.
With the Eagles clinging to a five-point lead late in Saturday afternoon's Patriot League game at Lafayette, Hinkle worked his way open for a decent look at a 3-pointer in front of the American bench. Hinkle's shot hit the far iron. Perhaps in earlier games this season, that would have signaled the end of the possession. But as the first half of league play is coming to a close, American coach Jeff Jones is seeing that an another option perhaps is developing.
Sophomore Tony Wroblicky worked in position to grab Hinkle's miss and put it back to keep Lafayette at bay. American eventually wonthanks to 23 points from Hinkle and a career-high 13 from Wroblicky. O'Hanlon's wins put him past Bucknell's Pat Flannery on the league's all-time list.
And here's one unbiased opinion on where the teams will finish. Defending champion Bucknell overall, league is a clear-cut favorite to capture the top seed and home court advantage throughout the postseason tournament. The Bison solidified their status as the league's strongest team by knocking off Lehigh at Stabler Arena last Wednesday.
McCollum decided to turn on a switch. The junior guard scored 19 of his 26 points in the final 20 minutes to spark Lehigh University's men's basketball team to a Patriot League victory over Lafayette before a crowd of 3, at Kirby Sports Center. The victory enabled the Mountain Hawks overall, league to tie last season's win total and pulled them into a third place tie with Lafayettein the league standings.
Instead of being in rec rooms and basements using controllers in front of TVs, pinball wizards walked to bowling alleys and pool halls with a pile of quarters and dollar bills. They pushed buttons and gently nudged the machine in an effort to maneuver a ball around a course of rubber-band scoring areas and gutters. If one nudged too hard, the machine went on tilt and the game was over.
The Lehigh men's basketball team plays a modern-day version of pinball. McCollum plays the role of the bouncing ball. McCollum maneuvers himself all over the floor to find those scoring areas.Haste The Day - Meet Me Half Way (Cover)
When the Mountain Hawks are at their best, they force opponents to overcommit defensively to stop McCollum and his teammates get golden scoring chances.
Such was the situation Sunday afternoon against rival Lafayette. Then, his teammates took advantage when the Leopards paid too close attention to McCollum. The result was a victory at Kirby Sports Center.
How many other Patriot League programs can point to today's National Football League conference championship games and declare "This can be you! Last week, Costanzo forced a fumble and recovered a fumble in the 49ers' victory over New Orleans. The Leopards have gotten off to horrific starts in Patriot League road games against Navy and Holy Cross before rallying in the second half for victories. Lafayette overall, Patriot League hopes to put two good halves together when it plays arch-rival Lehigh at 2 p.
She wondered, with her left hand wrapped after breaking the same bone that teammate Emily Gratch broke in a scrimmage before the season, if it was worth the risk to fight for that board with Lehigh comfortably ahead against rival Lafayette well into the second half of Saturday night's game.
She scored a career-high 17 points, including a 3-pointer during a first-half run that gave Lehigh the lead for good en route to a victory at Stabler Arena. The Leopards overcame a horrible first half 19 percent shooting from the field and a point halftime deficit to bury the Crusaders,at the Hart Center.
The victory was No. O'Hanlon will have a chance to break the mark when the Leopards host rival Lehigh on Sunday. Lafayette overall, league remained in a tie with American for second place in the Patriot League standings. Holy Crosslost for just the second time at home this season. The other defeat was to nationally-ranked Harvard.
In reality, the Lafayette College graduate is every player and all players. He's simply a special teams ace, one of the best in the league and one of the reasons the 49ers are on the brink of their first Super Bowl berth in nearly two decades. As a Pro Bowl alternate, he anxiously awaits a break for a free trip to Hawaii. After 13 years as an assistant coach, during which time he accumulated three championship rings, he easily could have elected to look for a brighter pasture when Bill Russo was cut loose following the season.
After all, who would want to be the head coach at Lafayette, where the entire future of the sport was teetering on the brink of either demotion or obliteration? And, he got it. After winning only four of 21 games in his first two years at the helm, Tavani coached the Leopards to three straight league titles in If last year's record -- following the of -- was an indication that another revival is in the works, news out of Lafayette on Wednesday confirmed that Tavani will again lead the charge.
Tavani's contract has been extended by one year, to Dec.

Reached by cellphone as he and defensive coordinator John Loose were returning to Easton after a busy recruiting day in the Lancaster-Harrisburg area, Tavani admitted that the timing of the announcement couldn't have been better.
But the margin of victory -- a win at Kirby Sports Center -- did have the year coaching veteran feeling much better than he thought he would. Homan's layup, which broke a tie, put the Leopards ahead to stay with 4: The largest crowd of the season, 2, was on hand to see a couple longtime rivals, Lafayette and Bucknell, square off in men's basketball.
As fate would have it, the partisan Leopards crowd went home disappointed as the defending Patriot League champion Bison walked off the floor with a convincing victory. But the Lafayette-Bucknell rivalry in general supersedes wins and losses. It represents the best in collegiate athletics. The programs have a genuine respect for each other that goes back decades. The defending Patriot League champion Bucknell Bison stampeded onto College Hill and handed the Leopards an old-fashioned butt-kicking before 2, energetic fans at Kirby Sports Center.
Bucknell overall, Patriot League dealt the Leopardsa loss in last season's championship game in Lewisburg, Pa. Saturday's game was very similar in nature. Six-foot center Mike Muscala, the reigning Patriot League Player of the Year, tormented the Leopards by scoring a season-high 27 points.
Muscala was 9-for from the floor and made all nine of his free throw attempts. The Leopards banged and bruised Bucknell's star center at every turn. Then a sophomore, the 6-foot center didn't take kindly to the contact.
The Leopards got under his skin, limiting the All-Patriot League player to just 10 points and eight turnovers in 34 minutes in the Bison's overtime win. A year later, the reigning PL player of the year thrived on the physical style of play. Muscala scored a season-high 27 points and six players scored during a decisive run to start the second half of Bucknell's victory Saturday afternoon.
Tony Johnson was the spark. Levi Giese added the dagger. Delaney scored a career-high 19 points, Johnson made his season debut off the bench and Giese was clutch down the stretch as the Lafayette College men's basketball team beat Army in a Patriot League game on Wednesday evening at Kirby Sports Center. Lafayette's Danielle Fiacco scored 11 points and had 12 rebounds for her fifth double-double of the year.
She also had five blocks. Madeline Fahan also had 10 boards for the Leopards. By the time he made his third in what amounted to only eight first-half minutes, he was raging inside.
Regarded as arguably the Patriot League's best point guard, Johnson expects more from himself. The junior pre-season All-league pick, playing his first minutes since missing the first 16 games because of a back injury, took his first step toward looking like his old self in the final seconds of the first half against Army on Wednesday. With just more than 10 seconds left on the clock, Johnson gave the ball away for the third time.
But seconds later, Johnson stole it back and had just enough time to race to the basket for his first bucket, one that gave the Leopards all the momentum in what turned out to be a Lafayette win at Kirby Sports Center. Seth Hinrichs was the player closest to O'Hanlon, who is known for his sharp wit.
The veteran coach said Hinrichs' defense was real bad when the freshman first started practicing this season. But O'Hanlon said that Hinrichs was making progress, " Laughter erupted in the college's Pfenning Alumni Center conference room. Even Hinrichs managed a closed-mouth smile. The Minnesota native is able to take things in stride a little better these days because he has surpassed his own expectations before Patriot League play began.
When the game was on the line, the ball routinely wound up in the capable hands of No. More often than not, the talented Leopards guard delivered when he was most needed. Since his graduation inDuckett hasn't shied away from any of his endeavors in the business world. Tonight, the Lafayette coach was happy that someone -- Ryan Willen -- took over the game in the final few minutes.
Willen scored 10 points in the final 3: With the game tied at 57, Willen converted a three-point play with 1: Playing with composure that blends nicely with the senior-laden Leopards' starting lineup, Hinrichs is averaging 11 points and 3.
The game was the final one before the Leopards enter Patriot League play. University of Pennsylvania men's basketball coach Jerome Allen and his scrappy Quakers invaded Kirby Sports Center and walked away with a hard-fought victory over O'Hanlon's Lafayette Leopards before an announced crowd of 2, Allen called that the definition of insanity. For a large chunk of Wednesday's game at Lafayette, Allen's starters were driving him crazy with an inconsistent defensive effort.
Excellent perimeter shooting, led by Jim Mower. The health of Tony Johnson, the league's premier point guard. Back problems have kept him out all season. Getting something from fellow junior Levi Giese also would help. Outside shooting, inexperienced guards. The monsignor relented, but said the practices would be at 6 a. Sunday mornings in the basement on a tile floor area used for bingo and musical performances. Sleeved tunics and wool kilts with belts were the standard girls uniforms of that time.
The rules of the game in the early s were different from the boys game. It was 6-on-6, with two rovers, two stationary guards who couldn't move past half court and two stationary forwards who could just shoot and rebound. Players were allowed to take only three dribbles at a time.
Instead, the Panthers found themselves in a fight with the Leopards, one Pitt almost didn't survive. The Panthers trailed by as many as 15 points but showed a lot of character in battling back for victory in overtime in front of a crowd of 1, at the Petersen Events Center.
Pitt coach Agnus Berenato said it wasn't exactly how she had things scripted, but it was another teaching moment for her young team. The junior forward re-injured his ailing ankle in the season opener against LaSalle and didn't suit up again until playing one minute against Vanderbilt on Dec.
Giese made a 3-pointer, grabbed three rebounds, had one block and one steal in 13 minutes. Most of Lafayette's pain at this point in the season is physical. But for now, he is eleven, and when given rules he deliberately flouts them, has consequences rain down upon him, and blithely skips away to his next calamatous fuck up which will get other people hurt.
This sort of child needs to learn responsibility by being forced to live with the consequences of his actions. He cannot keep being rescued or he will never grow, because he doesn't have to. Other people take the fall for his choices again and again, and he still decides that it was not his fault, he was right to do exactly what he wanted to in spite of being told again and again that it was dangerous, deadly, and had wider repercussions than he could see.
He ruined a fairy, trapping her and causing her to become an ugly imp, permanently. They turned him into a walrus. Then his grandad takes him to see a witch and has to pay a hefty price of undoing one of the last two knots binding her to get him restored.
The kid doesn't care. This is unbelievable to me. This witch has been chained for over a hundred years. His grandmother has been turned into a chicken and grandad won't risk untying a knot to save her - it is too dangerous.
This witch is too dangerous, better to let the love of his life and the sole other caretaker of Fablehaven lose her mind slowly, possibly permanently, than get this witch one step closer to free. So what does this boy do? Gets everybody nearly killed for it. Grandad and Lena captured, Dale turned to stone.
