YOU CAN call it the "Derrick Jones effect. " No, not just the audible astonishment the 6-6 senior's aerial displays elicit from the Archbishop Carroll faithful. Apparently, Jones' exploits also change the energy of his teammates. "It definitely gives us a spark every time he gets a dunk," said Patriots guard Samir Taylor. "I feel like that helps us change the game around. " Last night at Widener University, Jones and Co. jumped on Haverford School, 69-49, in front of a near-capacity crowd at the Pete and Jameer Nelson Holiday Classic.

Archbishop Carroll, seeking its third PIAA Class AAA quarterfinal berth in four seasons, set the tone early Tuesday night against Octorara. The Patriots pounded the offensive glass, carried over a hot shooting touch from last Friday, and built a 17-point advantage in the first seven minutes against the bewildered Braves. From there, Carroll, also playing stellar defense, put the finishing touches on a 71-50, second-round romp at Coatesville High and moved a step closer to its second state title.

The two teams that stepped on the Norristown High School hardwood Tuesday night had reached a level of play that no other girls' team in the region could reach. Spring-Ford and Archbishop Carroll, The Inquirer's No. 1 and No. 2 teams in Southeastern Pennsylvania, respectively, had combined to win 57 of their 61 games this season before facing off in the PIAA Class AAAA semifinals. Neither had experienced a loss in months. But only one team had experienced the highs and lows of the state tournament.

Some coaches may have been a little hesitant, getting handed the reins of one of the more successful high school baseball programs in the state. Archbishop Carroll's baseball team had won three Catholic League championships this decade, and with the talent back this spring, many predicted a fourth crown. But Fran Murphy eagerly took the job. And to his credit, the Patriots didn't miss a beat this spring, rolling to the Southern Division championship before winning their third league championship in three years.

Linus McGinty must give up smoking. Cheeseburgers, too, and any other food that tends to clog the arteries. But there is one thing the Archbishop Carroll girls' basketball coach does not want to give up after recent quadruple-bypass surgery: his passion, coaching. "I really miss it," McGinty said. "I'm just not physically capable of doing it now. " McGinty, 46, never had been seriously ill. So he wasn't overly concerned when he felt discomfort a few days before Christmas.

Archbishop Carroll senior Maura McBryan committed Monday to play college basketball next year at St. Joseph's University. McBryan, a 6-foot guard, averaged roughly 11 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists per game last season for the Patriots, who finished 18-8. The Hawks went 15-13 last season. She made her official visit to St. Joseph's last weekend. McBryan also strongly considered Penn. "I liked both schools," she said. "It was nothing against Penn. I just really liked the atmosphere, the team, and the coaches at St. Joe's.

Ryan Daly is a complete offensive player now, but that wasn't always the case. The 6-foot-5 forward for Archbishop Carroll employed his vast arsenal of abilities Friday night in the Patriots' 69-57 triumph against visiting Father Judge. Daly, a senior who will play at Hartford next season, finished with a game-high 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting. He also added nine rebounds and two steals and hit 3 of 5 three-pointers for Carroll (14-1, 6-0 Catholic League). After struggling to find his shot early last season, Daly focused on becoming a more complete offensive threat.

After a terrific senior campaign during which he showed vast improvement, Archbishop Carroll's Ryan Daly is back on the free-agent market. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound sharpshooter, who announced his commitment to play basketball for coach John Gallagher and Hartford last August, reopened his recruitment last month. "I just didn't want to go there anymore," Daly said without getting into specifics. "Coach Gallagher is a great guy. I just wasn't feeling it in my heart. " Daly, a soft-spoken wing guard with a cool demeanor under pressure, averaged 21.7 points and seven rebounds while sparking Carroll to a 23-4 record and the second round of the PIAA Class 3A state playoffs.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR Tony Carr, guard, Roman Catholic Penn State coach Pat Chambers smartly focused on landing the senior floor general and made regular trips from State College to Broad and Vine.

The 6-foot-4 dynamo averaged 14.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 2.1 steals while leading the Cahillites to a 27-4 mark and their second straight PIAA Class 4A state title.

Archbishop Carroll has announced the addition of Mike Costanzo, a second-round selection by the Phillies in the 2005 amateur draft, to its baseball coaching staff. After starring as an infielder at Carroll (Class of 2002) and Coastal Carolina, Costanzo played professionally for 11 seasons. He made his major-league debut in 2012 with the Cincinnati Reds.

Whitey Rigsby is one of the most recognizable faces in Villanova basketball history. He was a captain for the Wildcats in the 1970s and now is a radio broadcaster for their games. John Rigsby, a senior sharpshooter for Archbishop Carroll, said his playing style has been compared countless times to that of his well-known father. "People say the similarities are the aggressive play, the hustle, and the burning desire to win," the 6-foot-4, 170-pound wing guard said. With Rigsby scoring 14 of his 21 points in the first half of a PIAA Class 3A playoff opener against Holy Ghost Prep, the Patriots built a 48-9 advantage and clobbered the turnover-plagued Firebirds, 76-27, Friday night at Cheltenham.

After last week's disappointing loss in the Catholic League semifinals, perhaps what Archbishop Carroll needed was to be thrown back into the fire as soon as possible. The District 12 3A seeding game Wednesday against Imhotep at a steamy Archbishop Ryan was exactly that. In an at-times ugly and disjointed fashion, the Patriots held off the heat and the Panthers, 70-61. "Yeah, it felt like a sauna on the floor," said a smiling Josh Sharkey. "We just had to deal with it. We can't control the temperature whether it's cold or hot, so we just had to be ready in any circumstances.

Tony Carr was flat on his back, looking equal parts exhausted and exhilarated immediately after the Catholic League semifinal Wednesday night at the Palestra. Moments after the final horn blared, the Roman Catholic senior found himself mobbed by exuberant teammates as the defending champion Cahillites defeated Archbishop Carroll, 64-63, before a packed crowd. For Carr, who led all scorers with 24 points, reaching the title was sweeter this time around. "We've just worked so hard," he said.

Ryan Daly didn't hesitate when asked to sum up Archbishop Carroll's second meeting in five days against Archbishop Wood. "That's the craziest game I've been involved in at the high school level," he said. "It pretty much had everything. Luckily, we came away with the win. " In a beyond-thrilling sequel Friday night in Radnor, the host Patriots outlasted the never-say-die Vikings, 77-70, in double overtime. Carroll, a 67-65 survivor against Wood at the same site on Sunday, held a 39-26 advantage midway through the third quarter of the Catholic League playoff quarterfinal.
