Former NBA player Bryan Warrick, who starred in football and basketball at Burlington Township, has been named the boys' basketball coach at rival Burlington City. The former St. Joseph's University basketball standout replaces Bob Williams, who resigned in August to accept an assistant principal's job at Pemberton. Williams compiled a 228-124 record at Burlington. Last year the Blue Devils went 22-8 and won the South Jersey Group 1 championship. The 36-year-old Warrick played parts of four seasons in the NBA after a successful career at St. Joseph's.

Burlington City was one of the surprise success stories last season. Coach Bob Williams had hoped to break even with an inexperienced squad. The Blue Devils did more than that. They won the Freedom Division and went all the way to the Group 2 championship game, losing to Middle Township, 67-54. "We turned around our fortune last season," Williams said. "Last year we were able to play great pressure defense. " Williams isn't worried about experience as he looks to the new season.

Suddenly, Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski senses something wrong happening. His 30-7 team arrives in Indianapolis today for its fourth consecutive Final Four appearance and fifth in the last six seasons. As always, there will be no controversy accompanying them, no NCAA charges. Heck, not counting North Carolina fans, there barely will be a Blue Devils detractor. Krzyzewski's players attend classes, graduate on time, stay out of trouble. Whenever an NCAA signing period rolls around, the program regularly restocks its vast riches.

Office pool-aholics across the land have become so accustomed to Duke's making it into the Final Four that it seems almost inevitable. Just move the Blue Devils along at least four lines and save your sleepers for another bracket. They might not always get it done once they get to the Final Four, but the Devils sure know how to advance that far. Four straight times, in fact, and five of the last six seasons. This season, the Devils seemed to be more of a lock than ever.

Although Burlington City basketball coach Bob Williams will have a youthful team to guide this season, he possesses plenty of offensive weapons. Can the Blue Devils parlay that talent into a second straight Burlington County Freedom Division championship? Only time will tell, Williams said. "We won't expect miracles at the start of the season because these are young players, but we're fully capable of having a winning season after they've been in game situations," Williams said.

The fairy tale ended abruptly last night. Penns Grove had leaped over Paulsboro and routed Riverside in early rounds of the South Jersey Group 1 boys' basketball tournament. But it couldn't stop Burlington City's duo in clutch situations at Kingsway High. Seniors David Price and Zakiee Chatman gave their Blue Devils teammates a spark every time they needed it to stop the Red Devils' storybook run at a title with a 64-57 victory. The Blue Devils (23-5) won their first sectional boys' basketball title since 2004 and their 22d overall.

The last time anyone remembers seeing the Duke University basketball team at the Spectrum, Thomas Hill was grabbing his head in disbelief, with tears running down his cheeks. Grant Hill was skipping upcourt in jubilation, and Christian Laettner was spotted beneath a mob of hysterical teammates. Laettner had just ended Kentucky's goal of advancing to the Final Four with a buzzer-beating turnaround jump shot that sent the Blue Devils on instead, a fitting climax to what many called the greatest college game they'd ever seen.

AFTER GETTING crushed by first-place Malvern Prep in its previous Inter-Ac League outing, Springside Chestnut Hill realized the importance of a strong turnaround yesterday afternoon against Episcopal Academy. Boosted by a rookie hurler's flirtation with a perfect game and a senior backstop's gutsy defensive play in the late going, the host Blue Devils responded with a nail-biting 1-0 victory over the Churchmen and stayed on the heels of Malvern. Promising freshman righthander Aidan Frye, who was perfect through 5 2/3 innings, yielded three hits while recording a complete-game victory.

Springside Chestnut Hill's Darian Bryant, a 6-foot-6, 327-pound junior offensive tackle, committed Monday to play at Temple. "He's a smart football player and very detail-oriented," SCH coach Rick Knox said. "And he works really hard. He's shown a commitment to be the best player he can possibly be. " Bryant, a starter since his freshman year, also had scholarship offers from Massachusetts, Monmouth, Old Dominion, and Towson. He doubles as a nose guard on defense. He helped the Blue Devils go 8-2 overall and 3-2 in the Inter-Ac League last season.

INDIANAPOLIS - What you hope for in the season's last game is one to match the moment, a memory of two evenly matched teams playing to the stakes and maybe even beyond, every shot important, drama from tip to finish. Last night's NCAA championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium wasn't necessarily perfect (nor, it turned out, was Kentucky), but it was close enough. Duke (35-4) had to come from nine down in the second half against Wisconsin (36-4), but come back it did, overcoming foul trouble to two of its star players and finishing the game with a flourish of offense and defense that carried the Blue Devils home, 68-63.

FULL DISCLOSURE time. I have been a Duke fan ever since Gene "Tinkerbell" Banks announced he was heading to Durham in 1977. That was pre-Laettner, pre-Krzyzewski and pre-titles. I have also come to respect the Duke program, having met Coach K not only as a media member but also as a parent when my son attended Duke's camp. He was cordial, professional and everything I expected him to be. But tonight I will be pulling for the Badgers of Wisconsin. Why? I have always been a Bo Ryan fan, for the same reason I am a Tom Izzo and Mike Krzyzewski fan: Their teams win with class and play the right way. OK, Christian Lattener stomped on a Wildcat's chest one time, but other than that . . . No one really seems to hate the Badgers.

Are they rooting for Duke at the Southwest Philadelphia Police Athletic League center at 59th and Elmwood? They have no choice, said Officer Cedric Jones, who runs the PAL center. Jones first got to know Duke's Amile Jefferson when he came into a PAL center at 46th and Woodland when Jefferson was 9 years old. Since then, wherever Jones has worked, Jefferson has dropped in, including 11th and Huntington and 32d and Tasker. Jones' current office, he admits, is sort of a shrine to Jefferson.

Jahlil Okafor had 23 points and 13 rebounds for his ninth double-double of the season, outplaying Syracuse big man Rakeem Christmas as No. 4 Duke beat the Orange, 80-72, on Saturday night in Syracuse, N.Y.

Syracuse (16-9, 7-5) had exhibited plenty of grit in the two games since a postseason ban was announced as the school awaits the results of an NCAA investigation into the athletic department.

Burlington City senior Jada Atchison has been such a dominant player for so long that her height is no longer in question. While the 5-foot point guard is always giving up size, she learned early in her high school career that teams can't guard a player they can't catch. And keeping up with Atchison is truly an arduous task. Atchison is much more than just a scorer, but her scoring has been an essential part of her career. After totaling 14 points in Friday's 47-36 win over visiting Riverside, she now has 1,875 for her career.

Last week, it was the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in New York. Thursday, it was the national Christmas tree lighting in Washington. The next stop for Mo'ne Davis, Little League baseball star and University of Connecticut women's basketball wannabe, might be a high school gymnasium near you. Davis has made the varsity girls' basketball team - the high school squad - as an eighth grader at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy. "Mo'ne is way too good for middle-school basketball," said Tina O'Malley, girls' athletic director at Springside Chestnut Hill.
