At some point late in the first quarter, Lyayshia Stevens started thinking. And in a championship game, that's not always a good thing. Not in a deafeningly loud gym. Not with the game moving at a lightning pace. And not when thinking means taking time to dwell on the fact that this is the biggest stage of your career. "You can't think about it," Stevens said. "You just have to keep playing with all your heart. " Stevens, a junior guard, and her teammates did just that in Woodrow Wilson's thrilling, 65-59 win in overtime at top-seeded Timber Creek in Tuesday night's South Jersey Group 3 girls' basketball final.

Darnell Foreman was diplomatic. "We had our ups and downs," Foreman said of the Pitman basketball team this season. Eric Stafford was blunt. "There were times when we weren't playing our best basketball," Stafford said. But the senior guards were in agreement about one thing: Monday night's South Jersey Group 1 championship game was high time for Pitman to flash its true colors. With Foreman and Stafford leading the way, Pitman stunned top-seeded Schalick 58-51 before a capacity-plus crowd in the Cougars' gymnasium.

When the Mark Group, which calls itself the United Kingdom's largest installer of domestic energy-saving solutions, announced plans to set up its U.S. headquarters in the former Navy Yard in South Philadelphia, the state and city rolled out the carpet, offering $3.3 million in incentives.

First off, it's difficult to think of the South Jersey Group 1 boys' basketball finalists as small schools when one center is 6-foot-10 and an opposing big man is 6-9. What makes Monday's final between visiting Pitman and Schalick so interesting is that it dispels the myth that small-enrollment schools play on a lower level. While nobody is saying these teams would win the larger-enrollment groups, those who follow South Jersey basketball would insist it wouldn't be out of the question, either.

TRENTON A housing advocacy group is set to ask a state appellate court Wednesday to direct a special authority to produce new rules governing affordable housing, after Gov. Christie's administration failed to meet a Supreme Court-ordered deadline to complete the task. Administration officials last week requested an extension from the Supreme Court, which in September ordered the Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) to rewrite rules for determining how many homes municipalities must provide for lower-income residents.

LOGAN TWP. An environmental advocacy group contends that a soil-recycling company's Logan Township facility is jeopardizing public health by improperly processing its materials. The Delaware Riverkeeper Network alleges that Soil Safe has failed to correct the purported offenses despite an October notice of intent to sue by the organization, according to the group's complaint, filed in U.S. District Court on Monday. Soil Safe, which recycles petroleum-contaminated soil, provides remediated soil to the nearby equestrian facility run by the Gloucester County Improvement Authority known as DREAM Park.

George E. Ehrlich, 85, of Philadelphia, an internationally renowned rheumatologist and adviser to the World Health Organization, died Friday, Feb. 28, of complications from Alzheimer's disease at Arden Courts in King of Prussia. Dr. Ehrlich made his mark in Philadelphia as the director of rheumatology and chief of the Arthritis Center at Einstein Medical Center and Moss Rehabilitation Hospital from 1964 to 1980. But his influence went further. An international authority on rehabilitative management of rheumatic conditions, Dr. Ehrlich was trained in the post-World War II era, when the field of rheumatology was focused on discovering the cause of damage to the joints.
