BETHLEHEM, Pa. - A strip by Rachel Day. A steal by Aubree Brown. Jess Kaminski meets the opposing point guard just after she crosses midcourt, rattling her enough that she makes a bad decision. Down to the last person on the roster, the members of the Archbishop Wood girls' basketball team play relentless defense. The Vikings' feet never stop moving, and their hands fly everywhere. Scranton Prep found that out the hard way Saturday, as Wood defeated the Classics, 48-33, in a PIAA Class AAA state quarterfinal at Bethlehem Freedom.

Villa Maria had the Archbishop Wood girls' basketball team on the ropes. Down by just three with a minute remaining in the third quarter, the Hurricanes had all the momentum and were taking it to Wood on both ends of the floor. The Vikings, led by their poised senior class, never panicked. They went on to win easily, 53-31, Wednesday night in the second round of the PIAA Class AAA state tournament at Colonial Elementary School in Plymouth Meeting. "We just couldn't lose," senior Rachel Day said.

Adashia Franklyn called it "team building. " Her head coach at West Chester Rustin, Leah Kim, described it as a "team meeting. " Whatever it was that the Rustin girls' basketball team took part in after tough, back-to-back losses in the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA tournament, the terminology did not matter. The result is what mattered. Kim wanted her team to reflect on why it plays the game before the Golden Knights' first-round state playoff contest Friday. So the players sat and talked.

There are a lot of impressive things about the way the Archbishop Wood girls' basketball team plays the game, but what might stand out the most is that the Vikings don't have one star player. Jess Kaminski does the little things for the Vikings. The senior point guard is poised, makes smart decisions, and is all over the floor on defense. Junior Aubree Brown can shoot, is quick in the transition game, and has good hands. As for sophomore Bailey Greenberg, she's developing into a real offensive threat both inside and outside the paint.

Before the Cardinal O'Hara girls' basketball team steps onto the floor to begin a game, Mia Farmer has a message for her teammates in the huddle. "Have fun," the senior guard says. "If you don't have fun, then what is the whole point in playing?" the George Washington-bound Farmer said. A 5-foot-9 point guard, Farmer is one of two starters who returned for the Lions (17-8) after a Catholic League championship and a run to the semifinals of the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament a year ago. There may not be another local player who means more to her team than the explosive Farmer, who coach Linus McGinty said has carried his team many times this season.

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.

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.

Wood's Ryan Bates, a 6-foot-5, 280-pound offensive tackle and four-star recruit, committed to Penn State earlier this month.

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.
