The Reading branch of Chester High presses. Full-court. From start to finish. The Alvernia College basketball team used to play a conventional man-to-man defense. Half-court. From start to finish. The Reading branch of Chester High plays fastbreak basketball. Turnovers leading to length-of-the-court dashes. Length-of-the-court dashes leading to layups. The Alvernia College basketball team used to play the Princeton offense. Lots of passing. Lots of cutting and backdoor screens.

Cabrini basketball coach John Dzik was worried about his team entering Saturday's showdown for first place in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference with Alvernia. For a number of reasons. Alvernia would come to Radnor fired up. Cabrini is ranked sixth in this region in NCAA Division III basketball and had not lost in the two-year-old conference since its inception, a streak of 14 conference wins. That fact, coupled with Dzik's feeling that his team was not focused enough, had him very concerned.

Last season, it seemed as though bad things always happened to the Manor Junior College women's basketball team. With just a handful of players, the Blue Jays sometimes would finish a game with three or four players because one or two had fouled out. And it wasn't unusual for Manor to get hammered by the opposition. This season, the shoe is on the other foot. The Blue Jays are off to one of the best starts - if not the finest start - in school history. After beating Keystone Junior College, 74-25, Sunday, Manor is 11-1 and on course to take the Eastern Pennsylvania Community College Athletic Conference title.

Central Bucks South basketball player Julie Hahn has pretty much narrowed her list of college choices to two: De Sales and Wilkes. That may change after her performance yesterday in a nonleague basketball clash against Norristown. With Alvernia assistant coach Ed Olden watching from the stands, Hahn, a savvy wing guard, propelled the visiting Titans to arguably the biggest comeback in the school's four-year history. Trailing by 17 points with less than two minutes remaining in the third quarter, South outscored the host Eagles, 31-10, the rest of the way and emerged a 58-54 winner.

He wouldn't readily admit it, but lame-duck Cabrini basketball coach John Dzik is mad. "Did I look angry out there tonight?" Dzik joked after his Cavaliers posted a 69-63 victory over Alvernia on Wednesday. "I might have been angry at some players and officials, but I wasn't too angry to coach. " That was confirmed during a game in which Dzik directed and cajoled his team through its fifth Pennsylvania Athletic Conference victory without a loss. Yet his anger is the sole reason Dzik said he was given when informed that he would not be back for a 26th season as the men's coach.
