College Holiday Tournament. The Raiders (5-3) found themselves in a high-quality four-team field, losing a 66-49 first-round game on Monday to unbeaten Solebury School (7-0) of Bucks County, which is ranked No. 6 in The Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania poll.

For West Chester East center Eric Loper, it was a matter of setting the record straight. For Vikings coach George McDermott, it was nothing short of redemption.

Loper, who was held to 8 points in Shanahan's 55-52 win over East on Dec. 15, led the way for the Vikings with a career-high 22 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists.

The Nazareth Academy girls basketball team could've chosen any of a thousand reasons for not going all out in Friday's Catholic Academies League consolation game at Philadelphia Textile. The Pandas were coming off an abysmal semifinal performance in a loss to Villa Maria on Tuesday. They were losing a pair of all-league guards to graduation. The season was already a success, since the team had made the playoffs for the first time in seven years. The excuses were there for the taking, but Nazareth coach MaryJo Kelly and her players would have none of it. The Pandas took the court against Mount St. Joseph on Friday with two apparent goals in mind - honor the seniors who had taken them this far and show that the foundation is there for the team to return to postseason play next season.

There were some great individual performances in two of Garnet Valley's three games last week. Unfortunately, two of them were by opponents and led to losses to Archbishop Kennedy and Tatnall School. The Jaguars (1-3) then put a complete game together against Wilmington Christian in the consolation game of that school's tournament in Wilmington Saturday afternoon and won their first game of the season, 87-46. "Until this last game we had not played anywhere near where we should have been playing," coach Jerry Doemling said after the victory.

Bishop Shanahan's Matt Mento found a hot shooting hand in the second half of Friday night's dual season opener. Unfortunately, it came too late to help Shanahan avoid a 63-60 loss to host Phoenixville. Phoenixville (1-0) had a 20-point lead in the early part of the third quarter. But Mento, a senior guard who scored 16 points in the second half, hit two of his three-point shots to help the Eagles shrink the lead to 52-37 after three quarters. "Since we were down, we needed those three-pointers to get us back into the game," said Mento, who tied Mark Samoylo for high scoring honors with 20 points.

When you outscore a team 22-0 in a quarter, it isn't just a run. It's the game. That's what happened in Saturday night's championship game of the Upper Perkiomen girls' Tip-Off Tournament, as Quakertown fell victim to a rambunctious third quarter by Central Bucks East and went on to lose, 51-17. The C.B. East outburst broke open what was a fairly even game at halftime. The Patriots, trying to recapture the glory of last season's appearance in the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament, lost four of last year's seniors as well as their coach, but what they have now isn't bad. New coach Brenda Scheffey has senior Beth Mattern and junior Jamie Dawson in the frontcourt and steady junior Cristin Tuthill at the point.

BETHLEHEM - Penn basketball coach Jerome Allen has a defensive mind and he wants a defensive team. So far this season, he hasn't gotten it. Monday night in the consolation round of the NIT Tip-Off Tournament against Fordham, the Quakers lost, 70-68. And though Miles Cartwright and Fran Dougherty carried Penn (1-4), combining for 40 points and 12 rebounds, despite Dougherty sitting out much of the first half with two early fouls, Allen's concerns are defensive ones. For the second time in as many games, the Quakers watched a late lead slip through their fingers.
