EVEN IF none of the City Six teams makes it to the 2014 NCAA Final Four, Philadelphia will still have a winner in Arlington, Texas. That is because the Daily News' Dick Jerardi will be inducted that weekend into the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Hall of Fame. Jerardi has written for the Daily News since 1985, primarily covering college basketball and horse racing. A past president of the USBWA, Jerardi has won numerous awards for his writing in both sports, including national awards from the Associated Press Sports Editors, as well as the past two first-place Keystone Press Awards for sports beat coverage from the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association.

TORONTO - Ray Shero, accepting the Hall of Fame honor Monday night on behalf of his father, the late Fred Shero, recited the famous words the Flyers coach scribbled on the blackboard during the 1974 Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins: "Win today and we walk together forever. " "Thirty-nine years later, it's safe to say that not only has that team not broken a bond to this day, but the city of Philadelphia still has a love affair with a bunch of feisty Canadian kids," said Shero, now the highly respected Pittsburgh Penguins general manager.

TORONTO - It was so profound, so brilliant that has almost become a cliche, a phrase recited so often that its meaning is taken for granted. "Win today and we walk together forever," Fred Shero etched on the Flyers' dressing room chalk board on May 19, 1974. Last night, during the final minutes of his speech, Ray Shero paused. He asked the 15 members of that Flyers team - from Bobby Clarke and Bernie Parent to Andre "Moose" Dupont and Don Saleski - in attendance to stand and be honored under the vaulted ceiling of the Hockey Hall of Fame, a place where most had visited only as paying customers.

The Flyers teams that won consecutive Stanley Cup championships in 1974 and 1975 - and became Fred Shero's ticket to the hockey Hall of Fame - were known for their brawling, menacing style. But it's a disservice to Shero to think that his team's highly successful, intimidating play is why the former coach will be inducted posthumously Monday in Toronto. Yes, the Broad Street Bullies became famous, but it was their genius coach - the bespectacled, studious-looking man who got each player to understand his role to the max - who was perhaps the main reason for the team's dominance.

IT SEEMS like only a few years ago when a few local sports fans came up with the concept of a Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame and, through their energy and passion, made it happen. Next Thursday at the Sheraton Society Hill, Class X will be inducted. Given the strength of this class, it is becoming more apparent it will take organizers many years to run out of qualified candidates. Basketball is especially well represented with this group, which includes Sixers all-timer Andrew Toney, La Salle legend Michael Brooks, Penn all-time leading scorer Ernie Beck, Dobbins great Linda Page (she once scored 100 points in a game)
