The Pemberton boys' basketball team will start the postseason tomorrow with some serious momentum. The Hornets finished their regular season with yesterday's 73-69 victory over Pennsauken in the Philly.com/Rally Classic at Life Center. Pemberton (15-8) ended with a five-game winning streak. "This is how we wanted to enter the playoffs and we are playing with a lot of confidence," said Pemberton guard Corey Reeder, who was named his team's game MVP. One of the reasons for the confidence has been the play of Reeder, a Villanova football recruit who scored 21 points and was nearly unstoppable going to the basket.

Oxford coach Jerry Emling had to battle a numbers problem last year along with an inexperienced club. All of Emling's players are back from last year, and there are a few fresh faces this year. Emling has both depth and experience to work with and expects his team to be competitive in the Southern Chester County League. With only nine players on the team a year ago, the Hornets found themselves wilting in the waning moments of each game. Oxford was a contender in many of its games, but fatigue seemed to beat the players more than the opposition did. "We played a lot of close games last season," Emling said, "but the other teams were able to stay fresher and consequently, were able to run past at the end of our games.

Dennis Baumgardner's father always told him that "a scared man runs faster than a mad man. " Baumgardner, the Oxford football coach, witnessed a test of that theory Friday night as the Hornets opened their 1992 season with a 19-7 nonleague victory over host North Harford, Md. The test subject was none other than Baumgardner's son, Matt, the team's junior quarterback. The younger Baumgardner showed some unexpected scrambling ability under pressure by the Hawks, his most notable effort leading to the Hornets' second touchdown.

Garnet Valley's Bob Cassidy wishes he could play football against Oxford every week. He has made life miserable for the Hornets two years running, his latest rampage being a three-touchdown, career-best 193-yard rushing performance that spoiled Oxford's homecoming Friday night, 38-14. "That's as well as I've ever seen him (Cassidy) run the ball," said Jaguars coach Mike Ricci after his team halted a two-game losing streak and raised its overall record to 2-3 and 2-2 in the Del-Val League.

Baron Davis' second straight triple-double meant the Hornets will get to play another playoff round in Charlotte. Davis had 28 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, and the Hornets beat the host Orlando Magic, 102-85, last night to win the first-round playoff series in four games. The Hornets are awaiting approval to move to New Orleans. Before the game, deputy NBA commissioner Russ Granik said the move looks "pretty positive," adding that the relocation committee should have its report by the end of the week.

Charlotte is the home of the Hornets once again. The NBA unanimously approved Charlotte's nickname change from Bobcats to Hornets on Thursday at the league's board of governors meeting in Las Vegas. The original Hornets built a supportive fan base in Charlotte from the time they entered the league in 1988 until they moved to New Orleans in 2002. But the new owners in New Orleans have changed the team's name to the Pelicans. That opened the door for owner Michael Jordan to bring the Hornets name back to Charlotte.

The Charlotte Hornets had their worst shooting game of the season and it was still good enough to beat the team with the best record in the NBA. "We couldn't hit the broad side of a barn," coach Paul Silas said last night after the host Hornets shot 33 percent in defeating Utah, 83-82, in overtime. "But we played mentally tough. And that's what made me proud. I've been preaching to the team that if you play hard, good things will happen. " Charlotte's fourth victory in seven games since Silas took over the team wasn't assured until Karl Malone missed a three-pointer at the buzzer.

Oxford junior running back Kevin Boddy was determined to help the Hornets win their season opener, despite a sprained ankle suffered on the opening kickoff. Boddy overcame the injury by scoring two touchdowns and helped Oxford to a 34-13 win over Kennard-Dale on Friday night. The Rams compete in the York County League. "I was determined to play because I didn't want to come out," Boddy said. "After all, you can't help the team by sitting on the bench. " For most of the game, he hobbled, but he also sparked a 27-point second half by scoring twice and contributing seven tackles on defense.

Oxford had already clinched a spot in the PIAA District 1 Class AA football playoffs, but the Hornets did very little talking about it at practice last week, keeping their focus on their Del-Val League American Conference meeting with cross-county rival Unionville. That unfinished business was going to be a special event, because the game was to be played under portable lights, making it the first home night football game in Unionville history. For the Hornets there was also a minor matter of a 47-7 thrashing the Indians dealt them last season.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte Hornets' Al Jefferson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and Cody Zeller were out. Jason Richardson, Isaiah Canaan, and Thomas Robinson didn't play for the 76ers. And Nerlens Noel, the Sixers' best player, suffered a game-ending cut to his right lower eyelid in the second quarter. Saturday night's game at the Time Warner Cable Arena had a "who's who" of sidelined players. Perhaps to the dismay of the Sixers, Gerald Henderson remained in the game. The former Episcopal Academy standout scored the go-ahead layup with 6 seconds left in the Hornets' 92-91 victory.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte Hornets fans may be surprised when they get their first glimpse at the 76ers. The Sixers won't carry themselves like an 18-58 team once they step on the floor for Saturday's game at Time Warner Cable Arena. Rookies JaKarr Sampson and Glenn Robinson III may even have an impromptu slam dunk contest during warm-ups. And the fans will be sure to see a close-knit group that plays hard and enjoying the moment. "I'm proud of our guys for staying together with some of the cornerstones that we set with [the]

TORONTO - The opening appeared, and Gerald Henderson was through it all night at the Air Canada Centre. It's been like that since the Episcopal Academy graduate hit the starting lineup for the Charlotte Hornets. An opening appeared, at midseason, and he's through it. Although Hornets point guard Kemba Walker had 29 points on Thursday, he said after Charlotte got past Toronto, 103-95: "Tonight, it was Gerald. He was unbelievable at the offensive end. " It's always been very tough to keep Henderson from getting to his spots.

Nearly a week after celebrating with fans who stormed the court after a decisive victory against No. 10 Kansas, with the start of conference play looming, the Temple Owls returned to the court and sidestepped a potential land mine. They didn't overlook Delaware State. Jesse Morgan scored a team-high 15 points, all on three-pointers in the second half, and Jaylen Bond added 12 points and set a building record with 18 rebounds on the way to a 66-56 victory Sunday night at the Liacouras Center.

WHEN MICHAEL Carter-Williams flushed home a transition dunk with just over 10 seconds to play, the home crowd roared. It wasn't because the late-game two-handed slam had any significance in the result, rather it was the deal the fans will get on a Papa John's pizza thanks to the Sixers scoring more than 90 points. Outside of that moment, the Sixers gave the home crowd little else to cheer about last night. With games against two fellow Eastern Conference bottom feeders this weekend, the game served as an opportunity for the Sixers to pick up their third win of the season.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist insists he won't change his unyielding style of play despite the mounting injuries. The Charlotte Hornets small forward, who hails from Somerdale, Camden County, was rushed to a New York hospital with a rib contusion after being knocked to the Madison Square Garden floor while battling for a loose ball against the New York Knicks on Nov. 2. That incident sidelined Kidd-Gilchrist for two games. On Dec. 10, he returned after missing 12 games with a stress reaction in his right foot.

Although there was no game on the schedule last week for the Temple Owls, little changed about their preparation. They practiced all last week as if they had a game, and on Monday they turned their attention to Saturday's opponent, Delaware State, at Lincoln Financial Field. "We spent the open week really just trying to get better and prepare for Delaware State," Temple coach Matt Rhule said. "We are focused on playing a good football team.

CHARLOTTE BOBCATS owner Michael Jordan is changing his team's name to the Hornets, said a person familiar with the situation. The person said Jordan will detail the timetable for the change to be completed at a press conference the Bobcats have scheduled today. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the name change has not been publicly announced. NBA deputy commissioner and COO Adam Silver previously said it would take "about 18 months" for the Bobcats to change their name.
