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.

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.

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.

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.

Although there was no game on the schedule last week for the Temple Owls, little changed about their preparation.

" Temple (1-1) looks to bounce back after a 31-24 loss to Navy in its home opener on Sept.

WHEN 76ERS coach Doug Collins saw that his team's defense was pretty much making the game a shootout, he made the only adjustment he could. Instead of looking for defense, he decided to run with the bulls instead of trying to stop them. Down 18 points to begin the fourth quarter, Collins inserted recently shelved Nick Young. Looking for more of a defensive unit, Collins had pretty much relegated Young to the bench, not playing him at all in Saturday's win over Houston and sitting him for the first 36 minutes Tuesday.

Everything was in place for the 76ers to put two wins together for the first time in almost six weeks. They had an opponent that was dead last in its division, ranked 28th in the league in scoring, and the recipient of a beating by the Sixers earlier in the season. But that Nov. 7 loss seemed years away for the New Orleans Hornets Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Another lifeless and often-booed performance by the Sixers resulted in their sixth loss in seven games. The Hornets defeated them handily, 111-99.

Carmelo Anthony was hungry, and not just to end the Knicks' losing streak. He wanted something to eat. Anthony, struggling to keep his energy up while fasting for two weeks, snapped out of a slow start by scoring 18 of his 27 points in the second quarter, and New York ended its three-game skid with a 100-87 victory over the visiting New Orleans Hornets on Sunday.
