Aubree Brown's head is always on a swivel, as she looks for where the ball should go next. Brown, Archbishop Wood's senior captain, exudes a pivotal confidence for the Vikings (26-4), who will face Blackhawk in the PIAA Class AAA state final Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Giant Center in Hershey. Strong with the ball in her hands, the 6-foot guard/forward is a terrific passer. She almost always finds the open teammate. Brown does so with such frequency that she makes difficult passes look routine.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - When people think about Archbishop Wood girls' basketball teams, they usually think about defense. It's become a hallmark. And the Vikings have three straight state championships from 2010 to 2012 to show for it. There's the discipline, the strategy, the grit, and the uncanny ability to get the opponent to make a mistake. The result is that by the final buzzer, the opposing team has had one heck of a time trying to get the ball into the net. Interim coach Mike McDonald's team is so good on the defensive end that sometimes one forgets just how efficiently the Vikings run their offensive sets.

Shannon May wasn't going to let her eyes off Alyssa Monaghan. The task was simple, at least in theory, for the Archbishop Wood sophomore: shadow the Bonner-Prendergast senior guard. As soon as a Bonner-Prendergast player got a defensive rebound, there May was, glued to the Catholic League's most valuable player, her eyes transfixed on the St. Joseph's recruit. May was so focused on Monaghan's off-the-ball movements that, at one point, neither player realized when a loose ball bounced in her direction.

Through six quarters, Alyssa Monaghan refused to take a single break Wednesday. She knew there was too much on the line. Not only was the senior guard in the midst of propelling Bonner-Prendergast to a 59-53 double-overtime win over West York in the second round of the PIAA Class AAA playoffs, but she also knew she was within striking distance of a milestone. Monaghan's 32 points made good on both counts, and was enough to send the Pandas to a quarterfinal matchup against league-rival Archbishop Wood on Saturday at a site and time to be determined.

HERSHEY, Pa. - An exhausted Derek Gulotta stretched out on a gray floor in the Giant Center. He ripped tape off of his left elbow as he tried to catch his breath. After his quarterfinal win at the PIAA wrestling championships Friday afternoon, the Owen J. Roberts senior limped to his feet. Gulotta conceded he isn't as healthy as he'd like to be headed into the biggest match of his career Saturday. The 132-pounder hyperextended his elbow and sprained his ankle more than a month ago. He hasn't been fully able since.

Kathy May sees a lot of her older brother, Chip, in her niece Bailey Greenberg. The quick first step of the Archbishop Wood junior reminds May, an assistant coach for the Vikings, the most of the way Chip Greenberg played basketball. "Her first step," May said. "[With] her long first step, she can go by anybody. He could go by anybody. He could really jump as well. They have the same calves - strong, jumper calves we call them. Her sister has them, too. " Greenberg shares more than calves, a deft move to the basket and prowess on the boards with her father.

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.
