Kamiah Smalls remembers the last time the Neumann-Goretti girls' basketball lost to a Catholic League opponent. It was Valentine's Day 2013. The Saints' opponent? Archbishop Carroll. The contest? A league quarterfinal. The score? 38-36, the Patriots winning on a buzzer-beating three-pointer. Back then, the guard was a freshman and Goretti was on the rise. Now Smalls is a James Madison recruit and the Saints have won 53 games in a row. The opponent was the same for the Saints on Tuesday night at Philadelphia University, but the stakes were higher.

It was apparent whenever Archbishop Wood's Cassie Sebold dove on the court for a loose ball, whenever Bailey Greenberg leapt through her opponents to grab an offensive rebound and put it back up and in. You could see it when Claire Bassetti played tough defense, almost daring her Cardinal O'Hara foe to try and shoot it. This wasn't just any game for the Vikings girls' basketball team. Tuesday's Catholic League semifinal at Philadelphia University was different. And as such, the energy was intense for the Vikings early on as they beat O'Hara, 47-34.

Ryan Daly didn't hesitate when asked to sum up Archbishop Carroll's second meeting in five days against Archbishop Wood. "That's the craziest game I've been involved in at the high school level," he said. "It pretty much had everything. Luckily, we came away with the win. " In a beyond-thrilling sequel Friday night in Radnor, the host Patriots outlasted the never-say-die Vikings, 77-70, in double overtime. Carroll, a 67-65 survivor against Wood at the same site on Sunday, held a 39-26 advantage midway through the third quarter of the Catholic League playoff quarterfinal.

Archbishop Wood experienced a major slump last month while dropping five straight Catholic League games. One of those setbacks came on the road against Father Judge. The Vikings returned to Mayfair on Wednesday night for a first-round playoff against the Crusaders, dominated on both ends from the start, and cruised to a 64-42 triumph in determined fashion. "We played about as bad as we could have the first game," Wood senior floor general Tommy Funk said. "We came here with a chip on our shoulder, wanting badly to get payback.

Anthony Russo will stay close to home and play for Matt Rhule at Temple, while a pair of his Archbishop Wood teammates, Mack Schwartz and Kurt Stengel, will join forces at Navy.

Dean Jakeman grew up around the corner from Archbishop Wood, but he never envisioned himself attending the school. Jakeman - now a junior at Father Judge - said he instead always felt a "personal rivalry" with Wood. "Wood has always been in the back of my head because I grew up 30 seconds from here, I looked at this school every day, and then I ended up going to Judge when I moved to Philly in eighth grade," Jakeman said. "But I always had something out for Wood. I always wanted to get them.

The recipe for success for the Archbishop Wood basketball team isn't complicated. Getting the ingredients to coalesce, however, has been a challenge at times. The Vikings had no such worries Friday night against La Salle in a 73-63 victory in front of a raucous home crowd. The win was the third straight for Wood (10-7, 4-5), which had lost four straight games in Catholic League play before its recent streak. The biggest difference: playing team basketball. "I think they realized that if they trust each other, trust in the system and play together, they're hard to beat," said coach John Mosco.
