WHAT IN the world is a 6-7, 285-pound center supposed to do in an up-tempo offense? Simple: Run! So, Joe LoStracco laces up his size-18s for Archbishop Wood and hoofs it every day before practice. While the little guys do skill work, the big senior works on conditioning drills. In fact, before last night's tipoff against Bishop McDevitt, first-year Viking coach John Mosco revealed that LoStracco would come off the bench until he returned to basketball form after a season on the football team's offensive line.

All Asia Baker has to do is text or call her coach, Dan Dougherty, if she thinks she needs to work on her jump shot. He'll open the Plymouth Whitemarsh gym for her, and the senior will spend the next hour or so taking a couple of hundred shots to fix whatever problem she might be having. It isn't remarkable that Baker, a 5-foot-10 guard/forward for the Colonials girls' basketball team, has developed such a rapport with her coach. What's interesting is that she has felt so comfortable with her new squad since the moment she met Dougherty in May. But Baker, a transfer from Shipley, isn't just any new player for the Colonials.

Eric Cassidy hopes that the Jimmy V Classic at Schalick High will become a feature of the start of the South Jersey boys' basketball season. Cassidy, the Schalick boys' basketball coach, has put together a seven-game, 14-team showcase to begin the season with an all-day event Saturday at the Salem County school in Pittsgrove. The event is special to Cassidy, who lost his mother, Debbie, to cancer in October 2011. This will be the second year of the showcase. At the initial event in 2012, organizers raised $3,000, Cassidy said.

It was relatively simple for Margaret Anne Hubbell last season: Show up, work hard, and she would make her mark on the Germantown Academy girls' basketball team. And the seniors, they would do all the talking. A year later, things are a bit different for the forward, now a senior herself. Last season, as a starter for the Patriots, Hubbell averaged almost 12 points, scoring a season-high 23 twice and netting double digits 15 times. Hubbell also was a strong presence on the boards for GA, grabbing a season high of 14. Now, with Hubbell the only senior on the Patriots, her role has changed.

HERSHEY - With Archbishop Wood trailing at halftime, coach Steve Devlin didn't have any magic potions or complicated speeches. Last season, his team faced a long bus ride back to Warminster after losing in the final. Not this season. The Vikings claimed their second PIAA Class AAA championship in 3 years with a 22-10 victory over Harrisburg's Bishop McDevitt. "We played well in the first half," Devlin said. "But we didn't play up to our standards, and I told them they had a half to make memories for themselves.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Archbishop Wood coach Steve Devlin acknowledged that his halftime talk, with the Vikings struggling mightily to gain rushing yardage, was "a little louder than usual. " Whatever Devlin said, the players - in particular, the offensive line - responded. Wood netted 184 yards rushing and three touchdowns after the break and downed Bishop McDevitt of Harrisburg, 22-10, Friday night at Hersheypark Stadium to win the PIAA Class AAA state football championship. Junior tailback Jarrett McClenton benefited from the up-front turnaround.

WHEN ARCHBISHOP Wood junior Ryan Bates was in seventh grade, he decided he was finished with football for good. It was too tough, required too much running and had just stopped being fun. So, after he told his CYO coaches he was finished, Bates returned to his dad's 1999 black Ford F-150 thinking the nightmare was over. You couldn't even pay him to play. "When I got back into the truck my dad had four $100 bills," said Bates, sitting inside the team's film room on the Warminster campus.

Don't look for Archbishop Wood's Deion Oliver to be playing any basketball, organized or other, after football season. Last January, after the Vikings' run to the PIAA Class AAA state final, the offensive lineman blew out his right knee while attempting a dunk in a pickup hoops game. That resulted in surgery and months of rehabilitation. "My knee twisted inward," Oliver said. "I didn't feel a ton of pain at first. When I had it checked out the next day, it showed that I had torn my anterior cruciate ligament and both menisci.

PICK A BACK, any back. Imhotep Charter coach Albie Crosby already has a three-headed monster at the running-back position, and senior defensive back Deandre Scott also got in on the act when he scored on a 75-yard run on his only touch in Saturday's PIAA Class AA semifinal win. Sophomore running back Tyliek Raynor restored a sense of order with the game's other two scores for the Panthers, who became the first Public League school to earn a...

Imhotep Charter boys' basketball coach Andre Noble made great time as he avoided Saturday afternoon's traffic and arrived at Lower Merion in 70 minutes. Also the school's athletic director, Noble stayed for the end of the Panthers' PIAA semifinal football win just outside Reading before heading to his evening game with the Aces. And his good fortune continued as his basketball team turned back Lower Merion's late rally to win, 58-54. Senior Jakwan Jones scored eight of his 17 points in the fourth quarter.
