Sianni Martin went up the ladder to cut down a piece of the net at the Palestra. Her teammate on the Neumann-Goretti girls' basketball team, Ciani Cryor, soon followed. Moments earlier, Martin and Cryor grabbed the Philadelphia Catholic League championship plaque first after the Saints won their second straight title by beating Archbishop Wood, 50-45. The game was played against a backdrop of controversy as Wood's coach, John Gallagher, resigned two weeks ago amid allegations he sent anonymous emails questioning the eligibility of some of the Saints.

It had the look and feel of a purple wave. It didn't always move in unison and the chants weren't always crisp and clean, but the Roman Catholic student section was definitely a force Monday night during the Catholic League championship at the Palestra. According to a school official, the school sold almost 1,800 tickets, which netted nearly $1,600. They also had to turn away another 200 students after the school's available tickets sold out. The Cahillites pulled off a thrilling 64-59 victory, which snapped Neumann-Goretti's six-year stranglehold on the Catholic League title.

The Archbishop Wood girls' basketball team, understandably, is trying to move past the recent resignation of head coach John Gallagher and concentrate on achieving its postseason goals. "We're just focused on basketball and playing for each other," senior Aubree Brown said after the Vikings bested Archbishop Ryan, 39-34, in a Catholic League playoff semifinal Thursday night at Philadelphia University. Gallagher resigned early last week over allegations that he sent anonymous e-mails to college coaches in hopes of jeopardizing the NCAA eligibility of three Nigerian players at Catholic League rival Neumann-Goretti.

You could see it on the faces of the Neumann-Goretti girls' basketball team: they were itching to get to the offensive end of the floor. As Archbishop Carroll purposefully moved through its sets, the Saints wanted to run. That has become Neumann-Goretti's modus operandi the last two seasons: to use their speed in transition. Players such as Ciani Cryor and A.J. Timbers bounced on their feet on the defensive end, waiting to pounce on a passing lane and ignite the offense. But the Patriots were patient.

The first time John Mosco saw Luke Connaghan, the soon-to-be Archbishop Wood basketball coach had no idea he was watching his future forward. It was the summer of Connaghan's sophomore season and Mosco was still a Neumann-Goretti assistant. The Saints and Vikings met in a summer league championship game at the Mayfair Recreation Center. Connaghan, now a senior for the Vikings, evidently made quite an impression. "I didn't know who he was," Mosco said. "I called Ed McCormick, an assistant coach [at Wood]

AND TO THINK, the first time John Mosco saw Luke Connaghan, the soon-to-be Archbishop Wood basketball coach had no idea he was watching his future forward. It was the summer of Connaghan's sophomore season and Mosco was still an assistant at Ss. Neumann-Goretti. The Saints and Vikings met in a summer league championship game at the Mayfair Recreation Center. Connaghan, now a senior, for the Vikings, evidently made quite an impression. "I didn't know who he was," Mosco said.

Archbishop Wood girls' basketball coach John Gallagher announced his resignation on Monday afternoon amid allegations that he sent anonymous e-mails to college coaches in an effort to ruin the NCAA eligibility of rival players. Gallagher was called as a witness in a lawsuit in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court filed by former Neumann-Goretti coach Letty Santarelli. Santarelli, who resigned in October, is suing Stephen Skedzielewski, whom she replaced as coach in 2012. Santarelli is seeking more than $50,000 in damages for libel, slander, and misrepresentation of character.

After they knocked off the No. 1 team in the area on Friday afternoon, the members of the Archbishop Wood boys' basketball celebrated as if they had been there before. That's because they had. Just last week, actually. Luke Connaghan (19 points, nine rebounds) and Tyree Pickron (14 points, 14 rebounds) led the visiting Vikings to their sixth win in a row, 64-58, over Roman Catholic. Pickron scored 11 in the fourth quarter to help Wood close it out. Last Friday, Archbishop Wood stunned La Salle, which at the time was ranked No. 4 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer.
