So much talent, so little cohesion. The very nature of all-star games almost guarantees a mix of the spectacular and the sloppy, and the third annual All-Star Labor Classic proved no exception. Boys basketball teams representing the City and Suburbs played like the strangers they were in an uneven first half, which saw the City claw out a 43-38 lead. But the City boys evidently learned enough in their limited time together to lay the foundation for what followed. The City, primarily on the strength of fullcourt defensive pressure that forced 33 Suburban turnovers, erupted for 65 second-half points and rolled to a 108-85 victory last night at St. Joseph's Alumni Fieldhouse.

"They weren't that strong inside," said Glen Mills' James Spears, who played for the Suburban basketball team. "They crashed the boards, but it was a weak attempt. They were really a bunch of perimeter players. " Spears took advantage of the City's soft inside play by scoring 13 points and grabbing 15 rebounds as the Suburban team squashed the City stars, 130-98.

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.

He was hurt on a hard tackle by Union defender Matt Kassel. Shea awaits tests on his knee on Wednesday, but Stoke City manager Mark Hughes did not sound optimistic.

Everybody wants to make the big shot. Nobody wants to miss the big shot. That's the rub for about 95 percent of the players in these basketball games. But the top 5 percent - the truly great athletes and genuine team leaders - don't fret about the implications of failure. They are special because of their willingness to accept responsibility and assume risk. That's Atlantic City senior guard Dayshawn Reynolds. Reynolds made a shot Sunday that people in Atlantic City still will be talking about in 25 years.

OF ALL THE positions one could picture Demetrius Town playing, point guard would be last on the list. Point guard? Wait. Isn't Town, of Ben Franklin High, a football lineman? Doesn't he go 6-2 and weigh (at least) 275 pounds? Indeed. But every school has gym classes and at Franklin basketball is the No. 1 pastime and maybe a month ago, there was Town, trying to run the show. "Know why I did that? Because I saw a documentary on LeBron James and it was showing him trying to take the ball to the basket, like he was AI," a laughing Town said, referring to Allen Iverson.
