The schools that knocked out South Jersey's top two girls' basketball teams from the postseason staged a closely contested affair last night for the Tournament of Champions title. The seeds held form as top-seeded Shabazz held off second-seeded Marlboro, 48-45, in the championship game at the Continental Airlines Arena. The outcome wasn't decided until Marlboro's Brina Pollack missed a three-point bank shot from NBA range at the buzzer. That would have sent the game into overtime.

La Salle coach John Giannini didn't need a box score to tell him how poorly his Explorers executed their offense Saturday against St. Louis. The Explorers committed 20 turnovers and "a lot of them were really ugly," Giannini said. The miscues gave the Billikens the upper hand in their 59-51 Atlantic 10 Conference victory that broke La Salle's 14-game winning streak at Tom Gola Arena. The Explorers (17-9, 6-5 A-10), who lost their third consecutive game and are 12-1 at home this season, showed little patience on offense against a St. Louis defense that ranks No. 1 in the conference in forcing turnovers (16.4 entering the game)

Temple guard Josh Brown had only one game-winning shot in his life - until Saturday. Then the sophomore made a short bank shot on a feed from Will Cummings with 2.4 seconds left to give the Owls a 61-60 win at Memphis in an American Athletic Conference thriller. Now the Owls (17-7, 8-3 AAC) face another critical conference game when they host Cincinnati (17-6, 8-3) Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. Temple has a five-game winning streak and the last loss was an 84-53 defeat at Cincinnati on Jan. 17. In that game, the Owls trailed by just a point at halftime but saw Cincinnati shoot 20 for 26 from the field and 7 of 10 from beyond the arc in the second half.

Avon Grove's backcourt duo of James White and Tony Jackson knew what they had to do to beat Octorara Friday night. "We had to get control of the game," White said. "We had to get the fastbreak going, move the ball and get into the flow. " The talented seniors did all this and more, leading the Red Devils to a 61-58 win over the Braves. The win raised Avon Grove's record in the Southern Chester County League to 3-2 (6-3 overall), and dropped Octorara to 3-2 (7-4). White scored 15 points and handed out seven assists and Jackson scored 20. "That was the first game I've shot well," White said.

The scoreboard was wrong, but Malvern Prep's Gary Duda didn't know it. The 6-foot guard had hit two jumpers in the last 3 minutes of Saturday night's inaugural All-Star Labor Classic to help the Suburban All-Stars rally from an 18-point deficit to within 140-139 of the City All-Stars with 18 seconds remaining. After Benjamin Franklin's Randy Woods (35 points) hit a 3-pointer from the left side with 10 seconds to go, the City stars led 143-139, but the scoreboard showed a 142-139 score, giving false hope to the Suburban stars.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Kyle Anderson has roots that reach deep into the sandy soil of the Jersey Shore area. His dad played sports at Lower Cape May High School, and his grandfather was a legendary athlete at the old Cape May High.

On Friday night, Anderson showed the best team in South Jersey what the area lost when he took his game up the Garden State Parkway.

Fueled by an inspired second-half effort from junior guard Lamarr "Fresh" Kimble and solid early perimeter shooting, Neumann-Goretti finds its bid for a sixth consecutive Catholic League boys' basketball championship is still alive. Kimble netted 15 of his 17 points in the last two quarters as the Saints, who buried five of their eight three-pointers in the first half, knocked off fellow power Archbishop Carroll, 67-62, in an energized league semifinal Wednesday night at the Palestra.

In honoring Villanova's veteran players on senior night, the sellout crowd at the Pavilion wanted a gift of its own - watching James Bell score the 1,000th point of his career. It mattered only to the crowd that Bell fell six points short Wednesday night, scoring 11 in the eighth-ranked Wildcats' 67-48 Big East win over Butler that gave the home team a record-tying 25th regular-season victory. Falling short of 1,000 didn't matter to Bell, a 6-foot-6 senior who is a top contender for Big Five player of the year.

EVER SEE a flock of seagulls attack a bag of potato chips on the beach? That's Jaylen Bond playing defense. He is a constant blur. Switching, moving, talking, attacking, anticipating - and his coach loves every minute of it. "He is maturing before our eyes," Temple's Fran Dunphy said. "He can guard perimeter guys, he can guard post guys and he's a terrific rebounder. All of those things have helped our defenses immeasurably . . . He's changed how we play. " Temple has inverted its win-loss record from a year ago, when Bond had to sit out after transferring from Texas.

MEMPHIS - Josh Brown found the net just once. But timing is everything, and Brown's short bank shot with 2.4 seconds remaining gave Temple a 61-60 comeback victory over Memphis on Saturday at the FedEx Forum, and a key foothold in the American Athletic Conference standings. Rallying from a 16-point first-half deficit, the Owls (17-7, 8-3) won their fifth straight game and kept at least a share of third place in the AAC going into the final two weeks of the regular season. Will Cummings hit a free throw with 35 seconds left to give Temple a 59-58 edge.

You may not agree with what central banks are doing worldwide, but their actions will force stock markets to levitate, says one prominent local money manager. David Kotok, chairman and chief investment officer at Cumberland Advisors in Vineland, argues that Friday's announcement by the Bank of Japan strongly increasing its quantitative-easing program represents a "massive, bullish shift for many stock markets worldwide. Included in the shift are Japan and its associated markets but also, importantly, the United States," he contends.

INDIANAPOLIS - Mike Krzyzewski and Rick Pitino are finally doing an encore. For the first time since their teams played perhaps the greatest game in the history of the NCAA tournament, Krzyzewski and Pitino will meet in the NCAA tournament Sunday when top-seeded Louisville faces Duke. In the Midwest Regional final, no less. Never mind that few of their current players were even born in 1992. Or that Pitino is no longer at Kentucky, having switched sides in the state's civil war after his brief trip to Boston and the NBA ended badly.

It isn't easy to be the glue that holds together the shiny pieces of a basketball team, but if there is going to be winning, there has to be glue. For the La Salle Explorers, a team whose roles have made possible its goals, the glue is junior guard Sam Mills. His work on the court doesn't fill the box score, but it allows the box score to get filled. He doesn't really lead the team in anything except leadership, because if Sam is willing to do the dirty work, then everyone does the dirty work.

BRIAN BANKS will get a crack at the NFL, even if it's simply a tryout. The Seattle Seahawks confirmed Wednesday they will hold a tryout for Banks, a former high school football star who was exonerated last week in a California rape case in which he was falsely accused. Seattle coach Pete Carroll did not speak following the Seahawks' offseason workout, but the team confirmed that Banks will work out for the team on June 7. "This is what I have dreamed about my entire life," Banks said in a statement from the California Western School of Law, home of the California Innocence Project.
