Simon Gagne skated for 45 minutes yesterday and reported no dizziness, vision problems or other concussion symptoms. The Flyers left winger said he felt "pretty good. " "I'm pretty happy the way I've felt the past two days," said Gagne, who had failed two baseline exams since being hit in the jaw Oct. 24 in Florida by the Panthers' Jay Bouwmeester. Yesterday, he passed the baseline test, which shows whether a player's reflexes are impaired as a result of a concussion. Gagne was cleared for full activity and will practice with the team today.

In an overtime thriller that was played with championship intensity, Haddonfield High advanced to the final of the Cherry Hill East Holiday Tournament by the slightest of margins - one foot.

The Bulldogs, who are 4-0 and No. 2 in The Inquirer's South Jersey ratings, will face Bishop Eustace for the second year in a row in tomorrow's 7:30 p.m. final.

The word before Mainland's game at Holy Spirit last night was that the Mustangs' 6-foot-7 center, Rob Higbee, would be playing at less than 100 percent. But Higbee at less than 100 percent is like most other players at 110 percent, according to his coach. Higbee scored 17 points and pulled down 21 rebounds to lead Mainland Regional to a tense 44-43 win over the Spartans in a Cape-Atlantic American Division game. "He plays as hard as any player I've ever seen," Mustangs coach Sam Botta said.

What's so great about high school basketball? Maybe it's tournaments, such as the Bishop Shanahan Holiday Tournament, where two games in one day go into overtime. Maybe it's teams that match each other three-pointer for three-pointer, layup for layup, and steal for steal. Maybe it's the thrill of a last-minute game-winner. But most likely it's Luna Foster, holding one child in her arms and shouting about her pride for another child for all the world to hear. Foster, mother of West Chester Henderson senior John Foster, was standing just a few feet behind her son when, with 8 1/2 seconds left in overtime, he hit the baseline jumper that gave the Warriors a 52-51 win over host Bishop Shanahan.

The Firebirds of Holy Ghost Prep have claimed 11 consecutive victims this season. But the latest of the vanquished presented no match at all, as the Jenkintown Drakes got walloped Tuesday, 64-22. The first Bicentennial League match of the year will not go down as a memorable one for the Jenkintown faithful, as the Drakes were out of the game from the opening minutes. Holy Ghost's man-to-man defense forced the Drakes into numerous turnovers, while the Firebirds ran from baseline to baseline with precision.

It was nearly a half-hour after the final buzzer had sounded and John Morton couldn't believe that the NCAA national championship basketball game was over. His mind wouldn't let him believe that there wasn't time for one more three-pointer from the general vicinity of Puget Sound. But time had finally run out and Morton's Seton Hall team had fallen one point short, 80-79, to Michigan in overtime of the NCAA final at the Kingdome last night. Morton, a 6-3 senior from the Bronx who entered a program that was a Big East doormat and exited one of the premier programs in the country, almost single-handedly would not let last night's game end. He finished with 35 points, 25 in the second half and 17 of his team's last 20 in regulation.
