Some members of the East Torresdale Civic Association Monday night criticized the group's recent settlement of a lawsuit against Holy Family College. Among other things, the college made a $3,000 contribution to the civic group as part of the settlement, attorney Richelle Hittinger told members at their monthly meeting. The association had filed the lawsuit in July, seeking closure of a Frankford Avenue driveway to a parking lot at Frankford and Stevenson Lane that was expanded in December during construction of a new college building.

Thoughts of another long, unbeaten regular-season streak for Holy Family were quickly extinguished in the Tigers' first game last weekend, when the Division II powerhouse fell to host New Haven, 69-68, on a shot in the last 18 seconds in Connecticut. "We're not as good as we were last year, but we'll try to work each game to get back where we were," coach Mike McLaughlin said. Holy Family went 32-1, losing in the title game of the Division II regional tournament. Although Kelly Killion graduated, McLaughlin said the Tigers will rely on sophomore forward Catherine Carr, the reigning rookie of the year in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference.

Holy Family ran into the same brick wall. The Lady Tigers dropped a 74-61 decision in the NAIA Bi-District XII title game last Tuesday night to Wingate College, the same team that ended Holy Family's season the previous two years. Wingate (27-5) advanced to the NAIA National Championship Tournament Friday through next Tuesday in Jackson, Tenn., while Holy Family ended its season at 30-3. Holy Family coach Mike Soroka promised a different look from the last time his Lady Tigers appeared at Wingate's Cuddy Arena, a 95-41 loss in 1988.

Penn women's coach Mike McLaughlin wasn't always a winner. For a few years, McLaughlin couldn't seem to win a basketball game at all. That was his time playing for the Washington Generals, taking on the Harlem Globetrotters around the world. As McLaughlin looks at all the forks in the road that led him to this point - coaching the Quakers, making the NCAA tournament for the second time in three years after Tuesday's 62-60 win over Princeton in a winner-take-all Ivy finale - a big fork was the simple act of getting on a plane for Moscow, staying at a hotel next to the Kremlin.

FOUR YEAR'S ago, Xavier Williams needed direction. He was 22 and had already worked as a department-store security guard, a lifeguard at the YMCA and city pools, and for a company that assembled swing sets. He'd thought about entering an apprenticeship program to become a carpenter, or electrician. Then on a whim he decided to give Holy Family University a try, even though he didn't have good enough grades to play college basketball when he'd graduated from Saul High in 2008. "I'll never forget this," recalled Williams, who'd gone to Community College of Philadelphia for a semester before flunking out but had continued to take some courses there in the interim.

Clock winding down, another win in the books - the words still lingered in the brain of Holy Family point guard Reggie Charles: No turnovers . That game, Holy Family wasn't going to take another shot, but the Father Judge graduate saw there was a couple of seconds difference between game clock and shot clock. Charles remembers calling over to his closest teammate, Marvin Crawford: "Marv, come get this ball. I'm not taking this turnover. " No turnovers means no turnovers.

A MAN WHO could read 15,000 books, give or take a few hundred, was a man to be reckoned with. And Larry Riley was that man. But how to do the reckoning? He was a man whose spiritual journey took him to a Trappist monastery, probably the strictist order in the Roman Catholic Church, yet he was also a man who enjoyed handicapping race horses and cheering on the steeds at Philadelphia Park and the old Garden State track. He earned a Ph.D with a dissertation on the Bolshevik show trials in the Soviet Union instigated by Joseph Stalin in the 1930s to get rid of his rivals.
