There are now two men named Joe Murphy who are the head coaches of Eastern High basketball programs. Joe Murphy Jr. was named the Eastern boys' coach last night; he replaces Dave Allen, who resigned in June to become the Cherry Hill West coach. Joe Murphy - no relation to the boys' coach - is still the Eastern girls' basketball coach. Last night's appointee coached the Cinnaminson boys' basketball team the last five years, compiling a 72-50 record, including a 15-10 mark last season.

Joe Murphy of the Washington Capitals was cut on his face and neck early yesterday when he was hit on the head with a glass at a Manhattan club. Police said Murphy was struck by Amin Kallamni, who apparently was upset that the hockey player was talking to a woman who is the girlfriend of one of Kallamni's friends. Murphy, 33, was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he was treated and released. The incident occurred hours after the New York Rangers beat the Capitals 3-2 at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.

It wasn't a difficult decision. A few years back, Joe Murphy decided he needed a regular exercise routine. Two options occurred to him: descending into a dark, damp basement overrun with exercise equipment, or twirling women around on a brightly lit dance floor. He chose the latter, and now Murphy is founder and chief cha-cha officer of Dance Haddonfield, a nonprofit organization that holds weekly lessons and dances from 7 to 10:30 p.m. Sundays at the Friends Meetinghouse here.

In the old days Joe Murphy would take his calls in the marble lobby of 1616 Walnut St., clad in a blue uniform, silver buttons and a shoulder patch that read: "Starter. " "Murph," an elevator operator might say when Murphy picked up the buzzing wall phone. "There's a guy with freight on 10. Want me to get him?" "Yeah, all right," Murphy would say. "Get him. " Or sometimes Murphy would see the red "10" light up in the big indicator panel, showing that someone on the 10th floor was waiting to come down.

The longest Stanley Cup drought in the NHL threatens to grow even longer. Grant Fuhr notched his fourth playoff shutout as the visiting St. Louis Blues defeated the Detroit Red Wings, 2-0, in the opener of their Western Conference series last night. "It starts with defense," St. Louis forward Scott Pellerin said. "We're just trying to go in there, knock guys around, and see what happens. " Geoff Courtnall and Pierre Turgeon scored first-period goals for St. Louis, a team that took Detroit to double overtime in Game 7 of the second round a year ago before bowing out. And that was with backup Jon Casey subbing while Fuhr recovered from a knee injury.

Visiting Pennsville brought too much depth and firepower into West Deptford's gymnasium last night in a battle between two of South Jersey's premier wrestling teams. The visiting Eagles (8-0), No. 3 in the Inquirer's South Jersey rankings, carved out an easy 41-15 nonleague triumph in capturing nine of 13 bouts over No. 4 West Deptford (6-2). Pennsville earned its crucial points in the middle weights, when junior J. J. Boyce (10-1) handed previously unbeaten Brett Fetty (12-1)

Even after they had a goal disallowed and had a controversial goal scored against them, the Chicago Blackhawks knew that two things were given: They wouldn't get dejected, and Joe Murphy would get his. "We've faced a lot of adversity and we've got a lot of guys who have been to the finals and won Stanley Cups," Murphy said last night after his power play goal 9:04 into overtime lifted the Blackhawks to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Vancouver...

Scott Kupersmit, who was named as Clayton's boys' basketball coach earlier this month, faces a daunting challenge. Last season, Clayton went 0-24. Seven of those losses were season-ending forfeits, which came when the school canceled the varsity season because the Clippers weren't competitive. Only one of Clayton's losses was by fewer than 10 points. Kupersmit had been the assistant coach at Burlington Township for the last five seasons. He is realistic about his task, but he's enthusiastic about his first head-coaching job. Kupersmit, 30, opens the gym six days a week for players to come in and work out. "A lot of people have asked 'Why take this job?

As the losses mounted last season in a division that is as unforgiving as any on a yearly basis, Eastern boys' basketball coach Joe Murphy never wavered in his vision. One year, his team was the Olympic Conference American Division champion, and last season, it suddenly turned to 7-16. This is a division in which Lenape won the state Group 4 title in 2009, but Eastern beat the Indians twice in winning the Olympic American Division title that season. Last season, Cherokee won the state Group 4 title along with the American Division crown.

It was two games in three nights against two of the most disciplined, defensive-oriented teams in South Jersey. For a fast-paced, high-scoring team such as Eastern, it wasn't just a challenge. It was an opportunity. "This was a statement week," Eastern junior forward Devon Bell said after the Vikings survived a furious fourth-quarter rally by host Lenape in a 56-52 victory Thursday night in an Olympic American clash of Top 10 boys' basketball teams. Bell scored 16 and senior guard Mike Wilson added 14 for Eastern (9-0, 2-0)

Matt Klinewski is tall and strong, with good skills for a basketball big man. He can shoot with either hand close to the rim. He can knock down mid-range jumpers. He can hit his free throws. But people hardly mention that stuff when they talk about the Eastern senior. They focus on his work ethic. His effort. His passion. "In all my years, he's the hardest-working kid I've ever been around," Eastern coach Joe Murphy said. "He came to the gym every single day and gave 100 percent.

Devon Bell has been a slasher and a scorer for most of his basketball career. This season, he'll also be a setup man. That's the tricky combination, but the Eastern senior has the skill and the court sense to make it work, according to coach Joe Murphy. "I want the ball in his hands," Murphy said of Bell, the leader of an Eastern team that will begin the season in the No. 3 spot in The Inquirer's Top 10. The 6-foot-1 Bell averaged 14 points last season as Eastern went 24-4, won the Olympic Conference American Division, and reached the South Jersey Group 4 semifinals, losing to eventual state champion Atlantic City.

Bishop Eustace is a team with too many seniors and too much ambition to settle for moral victories. So the Crusaders weren't patting themselves on the back after Saturday's closer-than-the-score 62-52 loss to state power Trenton Catholic at the Jeff Coney Memorial Tournament at Rancocas Valley. "I felt like we let it get away," said Bishop Eustace senior guard Carson Puriefoy, who scored 20 points. "We were right there the whole game. " Bishop Eustace (13-4), the No. 4 team in The Inquirer Top 10, hurt itself by shooting just 9 for 20 from the foul line.

Of all the numbers in basketball, the smallest might be the most important. "One ball," Eastern coach Joe Murphy said of his briefest and best message to his talented team. Start with that premise. One ball. By its nature, the sport promotes team play. And the best teams usually are the ones that share the best. Eastern began a season of great expectations on Friday with an imposing, 68-40 victory over visiting Camden in an Olympic Conference interdivision clash. Junior swingman Devon Bell scored 27, and senior guard Mike Wilson added 16. Eastern played sturdy defense; controlled the backboards; and made five three-pointers, all in the first three quarters.
