IT AIN'T always about how many points you score. Sometimes what means more are the winning plays you make, and when you make them. Last night, La Salle junior forward David Krmpotich didn't exactly shine brightest, but when called upon, the 6-7 forward came up big against Central's senior center Christopher Bing. "I don't really go up against too many players that are an inch or two taller than me," Krmpotich said postgame. "It was definitely a challenge and I embraced it. I didn't do as well as I wanted to and I struggled a little bit on defense, but he's a good player and he's hard to stop.

Ella Awobajo remembers exactly where she was sitting in the packed stands of the Palestra last year, as she watched the Cardinal O'Hara girls' basketball team capture the Catholic League championship. The senior forward for Neumann-Goretti was with her teammates and head coach Letty Santarelli to watch two of the Saints' top opponents in February 2013, as well as to cheer on the Neumann-Goretti boys' squad, who played in the nightcap. Instead of watching on as others celebrated, Awobajo had the best seat in the house on Monday night, as the Saints defeated Archbishop Wood, 55-46.

Two of Southeastern Pennsylvania's top football prospects in the Class of 2015 committed Monday afternoon to play at Penn State. Archbishop Wood inside linebacker Jake Cooper and Great Valley defensive end Ryan Buchholz, both three-star prospects according to Rivals.com, pledged to new head coach James Franklin and the Nittany Lions during a visit to State College. Franklin, who played quarterback at Neshaminy and East Stroudsburg, already has landed three area players. Wood's Ryan Bates, a 6-foot-5, 280-pound offensive tackle and four-star recruit, committed to Penn State earlier this month.

CIANI CRYOR hugged Shanni Martin and A.J. Timbers near midcourt. Her teammates looked at her and smiled. They knew they had the Catholic League title wrapped up for Ss. Neumann-Goretti for the first time in 36 years. The Saints' 55-46 win over Archbishop Wood sealed what was a magical season for them. They won their 24th straight game, in front of a few thousand at the Palestra, but none was as sweet as last night's. All the hours they put in throughout the season paid off when they cut down the nets.

If the first half of Thursday night's Catholic League semifinal doubleheader at Philadelphia University included a pair of tournament upstarts, the nightcap could have been for the championship of the legacy division. Cardinal O'Hara and Archbishop Wood have won two of the last three league girls' basketball championships, and the powerhouse programs met in last year's title game. So even though more recent history might have suggested otherwise, it probably shouldn't have been a surprise that this semifinal required overtime to settle.

Penn Charter made clear early on in its 43-34 win over visiting Notre Dame on Monday that this meeting wouldn't be the same as their first. Notre Dame had taken both games between the two during the Inter-Ac regular season. But this contest, a quarterfinal of the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Tournament, went differently right from the start. Playing tight man-to-man defense, third-seeded Penn Charter held No. 6 Notre Dame to one field goal - a three pointer - in the first half, and built a 22-11 lead.

Bailey Greenberg knew what she was getting into when she transferred from Gwynedd Mercy to Archbishop Wood this past year. Well, kind of. The sophomore forward has a long family history at Wood, with two aunts, Kathy and Kelly, who played on the girls' basketball team. Greenberg might not have known the offensive system the Vikings run or the kind of opponents she would face, but she knew Wood basketball was about winning championships. Needless to say, the first couple games were nerve-racking, especially when the squad traveled to Arizona early in the season.

WITH A LAST name like Slusarczyk, maybe Ricky doesn't look much to score to avoid tying the tongues of public address announcers. Yesterday was senior appreciation day at St. Joseph's Prep so the 6-4 senior forward had no worries about an unfamiliar voice taking a cleaver to his surname. "The announcer today did pretty well," Slusarczyk (sloo-SAR-check) joked postgame. "I hear Slus-HER-chick and Slu-JER-zick a lot; all kinds of names really. Some people just stop trying. They just say Slussss and just give up. " Slusarczyk is a rebounder by nature so anytime he grabs as many boards as letters in his name - it was probably a good day. He gobbled 10 off the glass yesterday in the Prep's 56-40 win over visiting Archbishop Wood.

  For his on-field mean streak and lights-out blocking, Ryan Bates was a high-profile member of the football Class of 2015 even before Archbishop Wood's drive last season to the PIAA Class AAA state championship. The offensive tackle's recruiting stock has continued to rise, with Big Ten powers Michigan and Michigan State, last year's conference champion, offering scholarships to the 6-foot-5, 280-pound stalwart last week. "It's real exciting," said Bates, an Inquirer first-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection last season.

To play for the Neumann-Goretti girls' basketball team means to be in a constant state of motion. On defense, the Saints use quick feet to slide and get in help position, while their hands relentlessly badger the opposing player. Those same hands tip countless passes, ensuring that no passing lane is safe. On the offensive end, the Saints move well off the ball and need only a couple of dribbles to get enough space for an open shot. In other words, the Saints are go-go-go right from the tipoff.
