Nearly eight minutes into last night's Prime Events Tipoff Tournament clash featuring two of South Jersey girls' basketball's finest, the fans filling the stands at the Ventnor Education and Community Complex had to wonder when the stars would show up. Tammy Meyers, the brilliant 5-foot-10 senior leader for third-ranked Willingboro, and Jordan Sykes, the gutty 5-9 junior swing guard for ninth-ranked Holy Spirit, had gone nose-to-nose with absolutely...

They've been going against each other for four years, and now the Devon Fowler-Rasual Butler confrontations are being called classics. St. John Neumann's Fowler and Roman Catholic's Butler dueled evenly last night as Neumann got the better of the Cahillites, 55-54, in a Catholic League Southern Division boys' basketball game. "It's probably the best individual matchup in the Catholic League in a long time," Neumann coach Tom Dougherty said. "I compare it to the old Big Five days, when [La Salle's]

The Haverford Fords had been one of the upstarts in Delaware County this season. If they needed any indication of the difference between getting there and being there, it came on the first two plays last night against defending Central League champion Springfield. Haverford booted the opening kickoff, and while Erick Cotter tried to fall on it, he got drilled by Gary Peabody. The ball popped loose, and Rich Ross fell on it. With the ensuing snap, Springfield senior quarterback Brian Stumpf dropped out of a play-action fake and lofted a 23-yard touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Mike Blunt.

The fancy sunglasses would have to come off, snarled the kid who was pointing a toy gun as though it was real. But the teen sporting the $200 designer shades wouldn't hand them over. Not without a fight. So fighting is what it came to yesterday morning at Point Breeze Avenue and McClellan Street in South Philadelphia. Actually, police said, it was a duel. While the teen who wanted to steal the glasses had a toy gun, the boy who wore the glasses had a real gun. The toy gun wielder, Kareem Dandy, 16, of Ringgold Street near Morris, lost his life.

  Crashers with bats ruin pitchers' dignified affair Two outs into the bottom of the seventh, it was a scoreless pitchers' duel. Then the dam broke in a spectacular way. You can blame Mariners second baseman Chone Figgins for jump-starting the Indians' offense in Cleveland on Sunday with an error. He booted a two-hopper and threw wide of first to allow Luis Valbuena to reach base at Progressive Field. The highlight of Cleveland's seven-run burst that inning was a grand slam by designated hitter Travis Hafner the day he returned from the disabled list.

  DORAL, Fla. - Bubba Watson and Justin Rose put on an amazing show of birdies in blustery conditions, making 17 between them while playing in the same group on Friday at the Cadillac Championship. Their duel was decided by Watson's eagle, giving him a 10-under 62 and a 1-shot lead. Watson belted a 3-iron that barely got over a palm tree, carried over the water into the wind, and settled six feet away on the par-5 eighth for an eagle putt that gave him a 1-shot lead over Rose.

The anticipated duel between Phillies prospect Phillippe Aumont and former prospect Kyle Drabek never materialized Wednesday as neither righthander made it out of the sixth inning. Mike Spidale's bases-loaded, two-out double in the sixth broke a 3-3 tie, and in the end Reading gained a 7-3 win over New Hampshire in the Eastern League. The leftfielder had four RBIs in the game. Aumont, who came to the Phillies in the trade that sent Cliff Lee to Seattle, gave up six hits and three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings, walking four and striking out two. He did not figure in the decision.

Columbus scored four times in the first and twice each in the second and third. The first six Clippers reached base off Pat Combs, who worked just 1 1/ 3 innings.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman didn't waste time after receiving an email last fall from her predecessor, Bruce L. Castor Jr., outlining why he thought Bill Cosby had a legally binding agreement protecting him from prosecution for an alleged 2004 sexual attack. Within a day, Ferman replied, in a bid to settle the issue. She and her investigators had talked to lawyers for Cosby and his accuser, Andrea Constand, and neither had documentation of any deal, she wrote.

HARRISBURG - The Pennsylvania House and Senate took radically different steps Monday toward resolving the state's five-month-old budget impasse, placing the chambers on seemingly separate tracks just days after they had been working together on a final agreement. During a brief and nearly debate-free session, the Senate overwhelmingly passed a $30.8 billion spending plan that reflects many aspects of the so-called framework agreement announced by Gov. Wolf and Republican leaders before Thanksgiving.

I'm starting to understand NFL fans who think that fantasy football has ruined the game they love. Because the daily fantasy sites are ruining fantasy football. In case you've been living in the Amazon for the last several months, these sites - dominated by DraftKings and its evil twin, FanDuel - are spending like a Bush/Clinton PAC to convince you that $5 and your encyclopedic fantasy knowledge can make you an instant millionaire. After all, how hard can it be to pick the best player at each position in any given week, under a not-that-restrictive salary cap?

The multibillion-dollar fantasy sports-betting business, under new law-enforcement glare, is calling in the big playmakers. FanDuel Inc. said Wednesday that it is asking former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey to conduct a review of the company's policies and standards and that former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia will lead a newly created internal advisory board. FanDuel's outreach to the two lawyers, who were among the nation's top prosecutors during the administration of President George W. Bush, comes as the company and rival DraftKings Inc. face scrutiny over a business that lets sports fans wager on athletes' performance.

In the haze surrounding former Philadelphia Police Sgt. Brandon Ruff's firing, there are three events on which all parties can agree. Ruff, while off duty, walked into 35th District headquarters in Ogontz on Aug. 3 and dropped a bag of guns on the counter. He was detained moments later. And within six months, he had lost his job. Everything else that happened between those moments remains up for debate - as was made clear Monday in a civil trial before a federal jury. Ruff, an eight-year police veteran, whose last posting was in Powelton's 16th District, is suing the department and six officers involved in a scuffle that day. He says they assaulted and falsely arrested him when he attempted to anonymously turn in three guns that he had confiscated under a no-questions-asked gun buyback program.

"I suppose you're the enemy," John C. Bogle, founder of Malvern-based Vanguard Group and that rare creature, an investment celebrity, told the crowd of bargain-hunting stock-pickers in an ornate ballroom in New York's Plaza Hotel. Bogle was onstage for a "Great Debate" vs. his host, Jim Grant, Federal Reserve-bashing, gold-loving publisher of Grant's Interest Rate Observer , a contrarian investors' bible. The two squared off over Bogle's once-radical, now-mainstream proposition that even professional securities pickers can't beat market indexes like Standard & Poor's list of the 500 major U.S. stocks.

WASHINGTON - Claude Giroux galloped through the neutral zone and dragged the puck through two outstretched defenders, finally breaking free just above the top of the circles. He unleashed a snap shot, not unlike one that has found the twine 133 other times in his career, but it was quickly gobbled up and swallowed by Braden Holtby. Giroux could do little more than shake his head and exhale, as he slid up the boards and back to the bench in disbelief. "I was coming in pretty fast," Giroux said, sighing.

On the day in September that Mayor Nutter announced recommended changes to the Department of Licenses and Inspections, City Council President Darrell L. Clarke presented a plan to create a Department of Planning and Development that would have oversight of L&I among other departments and boards. Three months later, the competing visions for L&I are moving at drastically different paces. Yet both are causing anxiety to developers and others in the building industry. They especially want to put the brakes on Clarke's plan.

It is the beach town that roared. Or at least filed suit. And on Thursday, Gov. Christie's grand plan to build one continuous dune along the entire coast of New Jersey will be challenged in U.S. District Court by the City of Margate, whose voters have stubbornly opposed the dune in two referendums. Last month, Margate's lawyers, including former U.S. Rep. Robert E. Andrews, made good on their threats and sued the state Department of Environmental Protection and the Army Corps of Engineers to try to stop the awarding of a contract for construction on its beaches, which they said was imminent.
