If the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference members believed Loyola College's recent surge was an aberration, they certainly are receiving a different message now.The Greyhounds turned everybody into believers last night, when they out-dueled the league's classiest team, La Salle, 62-60, at Reitz Arena and stamped themselves as a contender in next weekend's conference tournament.In a battle of defenses, Loyola (13-13, 9-6) won its fifth straight game and beat La Salle for the second time in 32 meetings and the first time since January 1944.

La Salle University men's basketball coach Billy Hahn and women's coach John Miller resigned yesterday amid investigations into two alleged rape incidents involving players on the men's team. "We're not going to go into detail at this point," said Hahn's attorney, Nicholas Nastasi, via telephone. "Billy won't be available to discuss it until next week, and I can only confirm the resignation. Next week we will have an announcement of a new chapter in his career." Hahn, who was an assistant coach under University of Maryland men's head coach Gary Williams for 12 years, had been at La Salle for three years and was 37-53.

Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman said the Bears are going through a tough patch with starting point guard Jerrell Green injured. The way the Bears played for the first 38 minutes of yesterday's game, you would have thought they never missed him. Sophomore point guard Reggie Holmes (St. Frances) scored 26 points and senior guard Jamar Smith added 25 as the Bears defeated La Salle, 93-87, at Hill Field House yesterday. The Bears (5-4) turned up their defensive pressure just before halftime to build a small lead, and then extended it early in the second half.

Gary Neal's sophomore basketball season at La Salle University ended in March with a 1-for-11 shooting slump and a dreary, 55-42 loss to Rhode Island in the opening round of the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament. At noon yesterday, when he surrendered to Philadelphia police on a variety of sexual-assault charges, including the alleged rape of a 19-year-old woman on the La Salle campus, Neal's once-promising basketball career was unraveling under the legal implications. The former Calvert Hall and Aberdeen High star is one of two La Salle players charged in the June 24 incident involving a female student from the University of New Haven in Connecticut who was visiting the Philadelphia campus to work at a basketball camp.

Before last night's game against Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference power La Salle, Loyola's Kevin Green was honored for going over the 1,000-point mark for his career in the season opener two months ago.Before halftime, he and two other starters had been benched as La Salle rolled up a 27-point lead.Before the game was over, Green had redeemed himself, eventually finishing with 23 points in the Greyhounds' deceptively close 94-84 loss before 2,219 at Reitz Arena.But those developments were insignificant to Green last night.

EMMITSBURG -- Donnie Carr, who was voted Pennsylvania high school player of the year last season, lived up to his advance billing by scoring 36 points in his college debut for La Salle at Mount St. Mary's last night.But it was a less ballyhooed freshman, Rob Balgac of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, who made only one field goal and scored a modest 11 points, who had the final say in the Mountaineers' pulsating 89-87 victory before 1,730.After Carr made a three-pointer to tie it at 87, Balgac dribbled almost the length of the court before launching a shot as he was fouled by Olof Landgren with three seconds left.

PHILADELPHIA -- If part of the maturation of any young VTC college basketball team is winning on the road, then the University of Maryland took an important step in the process against La Salle last night at the Philadelphia Civic Center.After losing nearly all of an early 15-point lead by halftime, the Terps showed the patience and persistence they lacked the week before at West Virginia. Led again by senior Evers Burns, Maryland built its lead to 24 points in the second half and won, 93-76.

COLLEGE PARK -- After feasting a couple of times before Christmas, the Maryland basketball team will try to satisfy a different type of hunger tonight: the feeling that comes from beating a legitimate Division I team.After their record-setting 66-point victory Friday night over Morgan State, which came 10 days after their 53-point romp over Towson State, the ninth-ranked Terrapins (8-2) play host to La Salle (5-1) in an 8 p.m. game at Cole Field House."It'll be tough," Maryland coach Gary Williams said yesterday before practice.
