As he stood on the sideline and watched his young basketball team warm up for its first game of the season, Joe Stasyszyn could not help but reflect on his good fortune. Here was Stasyszyn, a girls' assistant coach during the 1987-88 basketball season, preparing to coach his high school alma mater's boys' basketball team. The Carlisle boys' basketball team. The winner of an unprecedented four consecutive PIAA Class AAAA state basketball championships. And the Thundering Herd was playing in the spacious gymnasium at Shippensburg University - his college alma mater.

CARLISLE, Pa. - To the uninitiated observer there is something a little disorienting about being in a room with 300-odd years worth of living military history reenactors, where full-dress French and Indian War militia rub shoulders with World War II German Wehrmacht soldiers, as a World War I British soldier trades tips about where to buy boots with a Russian Army paratrooper. A glance around the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle at Saturday's reenactor recruitment event shows a lot of fresh, young faces wearing uniforms of all types.

Toward the showtime conclusion, more than a few members of the Chester High rooting section began chanting the inevitable: "Bring on Carlisle. " Yet, as far as Clippers coach Alonzo Lewis was concerned after last night's 97-73 win over Chambersburg in the second round of the state Class AAAA playoffs, any thoughts of the three-time defending champions still remain very much on the back burner. At least for a couple more days, anyway. First, the Clippers (27-2) must get past Abington (25-5)

Chester coach Alonzo Lewis didn't have the luxury of enjoying his team's 70-62 victory over Abington in the PIAA Class AAAA state quarterfinals on Saturday for very long. That's the trouble when your team's next opponent is the three-time defending state champion. While his players whooped it up in the background, Lewis talked soberly about tonight's state semifinal game (7:30) against Carlisle (31-0) at the sold-out, 8,000-seat HersheyPark Arena. He talked about the teams' semifinal- round meeting last year, a game won by Carlisle, 66-62.

Don't look now, but two-time defending state champion Carlisle appears primed to make a strong run at another PIAA Class AAAA crown. If the Thundering Herd had not been considered the team to beat before last night, they served official notice with a convincing 69-56 second-round victory over District 1 champ Conestoga at Reading High. Of course, the only reason Carlisle had not been viewed as the favorite all along was simple: three consecutive losses to top-ranked Harrisburg, the most recent being a disheartening nine-point setback two weeks ago in the District 3 title game.

Suffocating defensive pressure did the trick last night as Ridley High was bounced from the PIAA boys' basketball tournament by Carlisle, 62-45, in the Eastern Pennsylvania Class AAAA final before about 5,000 people at the Farm Show Arena. Ridley, a surprise winner over Harrisburg on Tuesday, was unable to sustain the torrid shooting pace it set in the first half. Leading by 29-28 at halftime, Ridley didn't score a second-half basket until midway through the third quarter.

Eric Evans knows his role and isn't hindered by it. The 6-foot-1 junior guard comes off the Chester bench to provide a boost to the Clippers' attack. Last night, Evans helped Chester in another area - offensive rebounding. Evans grabbed only two offensive boards, but his baskets off those rebounds were vital in helping Chester gain a 66-57 second-round PIAA Class AAAA playoff victory over Carlisle in boys' basketball at the Governor Mifflin Intermediate School. Chester (25-4)

After drubbing four-time defending state champion Carlisle, 59-27, in the consolation final of the Carlisle Tournament Saturday night, the Plymouth- Whitemarsh Colonials can be among the first to attest that Carlisle will not make it five titles in a row this season. Not only has the crown jewel of the program - high school All-America Billy Owens - moved on to Syracuse, but none of the first seven players from last year's undefeated powerhouse returned. In fact, not a single player on this year's Carlisle squad had made more than cameo appearances at the varsity level.

Pennsylvania State University's two law school campuses - one at State College and the other in Carlisle - are pursuing plans to operate as separately accredited campuses by 2015. The move comes after opposition from Gov. Corbett and the Cumberland County commissioners to Penn State's original plan to discontinue offering its first-year program at the Carlisle campus and focus there on upper-level classes and international programs, according to Philip J. McConnaughay, dean of the law school.

Henry Carlisle, 84, whose broad literary career included supporting oppressed writers, editing Camus, helping translate and publish Solzhenitsyn, and writing a novel that mused about cannibalism, died Monday in San Francisco of pneumonia complications. As a member of PEN, the international writers' group, Mr. Carlisle was active in supporting writers who faced censorship and other challenges. He was a leader in supporting Andrei Amalrik, a Russian writer who was imprisoned after publishing the essay "Will the Soviet Union Survive Until 1984?"

Just before the gleaming fire truck broke through the red, white and blue ribbon on the rebuilt bridge over Conodoguinet Creek, Gov. Rendell stood at a chilly lectern to tout the two-lane span as a symbol of the federal stimulus bill's success in Pennsylvania. "Stimulus works, and it works big," said Rendell, rattling off a bevy of benefits the controversial bill has bestowed on Pennsylvania since President Obama signed it one year ago: tax breaks, food assistance, energy conservation, infrastructure repair, and thousands of jobs preserved or created.

Rick Carlisle will be the new coach of the Dallas Mavericks, a decision expected for nearly a week but slowed by contract negotiations. The papers aren't signed yet, but team owner Mark Cuban confirmed in an e-mail to the Associated Press last night that a verbal deal is in place. The contract "will be signed tomorrow [Saturday]," with a news conference Wednesday because Cuban will be out of town until then. Carlisle said, "Whatever Mark told you is what's going on. I'm not going to make any comments about it right now. " Carlisle was the only candidate the Mavericks interviewed after firing coach Avery Johnson the morning after their second straight first-round playoff exit.

PQ Corp., a Berwyn chemical manufacturer, is being sold for the second time in less than three years, bringing its owner a huge profit. The Carlyle Group agreed in a deal announced yesterday to pay $1.5 billion for the company, making it a home run for the private-equity arm of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., which bought PQ for $626 million in February 2005. J.P. Morgan bought the 176-year-old company from descendants of founder Joseph Elkinton and managers, employees and retired workers.

All of the injuries and Ron Artest's benching finally caught up with Indiana. Elton Brand had 19 points and 16 rebounds and the visiting Los Angeles Clippers took control of the Pacers from the start in a 102-68 win last night, the worst home loss in franchise history. The Clippers outscored the Pacers 31-7 in the second quarter, holding Indiana (4-1) to a franchise low for points in a quarter. Artest was serving the second of a two-game benching imposed by coach Rick Carlisle because he "compromised the integrity of the team.

INDIANAPOLIS - Rick Carlisle has this 50-victory thing down pat. Ron Artest scored 21 points to lead the Indiana Pacers to an 80-71 triumph over the Portland Trail Blazers last night, giving Carlisle his third 50-win season in his third season as a head coach. Reggie Miller added 18 points for the Pacers, who improved the NBA's best record to 50-17. Carlisle won exactly 50 games in his first two seasons coaching the Detroit Pistons before being replaced by Larry Brown last summer.
