Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:

DEFINITELY SEEN After tying his career high with 34 points against Georgetown on Saturday, St. John's guard Marcus Hatten was named Big East player of the week. Courtesy of Georgetown's porous defense, Hatten, a Baltimore native, is now the Big East's leading scorer, averaging 23.4 points. Coming into the Georgetown game, he was third behind Syracuse's Carmelo Anthony and Boston College's Troy Bell.

NO NONSENSE Rutgers second-year coach Gary Waters isn't playing any games with his basketball team. Waters booted forwards Harry Good and Adrian Hill off the team following a 66-57 win over Prairie View A&M on Dec.30 for fighting. Hill, a 6-foot-8 freshman forward from Canton, Ohio, broke his left hand punching the 6-9 Good in the jaw. In addition, Waters kicked off Cortez Davis, a 6-7 freshman forward from the District, for what Waters calls "mental and physical problems."

NEW JERSEY STATE U. Exit 9 off the New Jersey Turnpike has turned out its share of celebrity alumni. Leading the Scarlet Knights' star parade is Calista Flockhart, the calorie-deprived star of the canceled hit show "Ally McBeal." Actress Kristin Davis of "Sex and the City" once called New Brunswick home. NBA commissioner David Stern, soccer star Alexi Lalas and second baseman Eric Young round out Rutgers' most notable athletic personalities.
