Some basketball players mope for hours, even days, if their coach even slightly takes them to task. Not John Davis. One of these days, after getting vilified by Carl Arrigale, Davis might actually stand, applaud, and give the guy a heartfelt hug. "That's one thing about Coach," Davis said. "You only get really yelled at when you deserve it. I appreciate that about him. " Davis, a 6-foot-4, 198-pound junior, plays forward for Neumann-Goretti, which now owns its fourth consecutive Class AAA city title.

For the first time since 2009, coach Carl Arrigale and the Neumann-Goretti boys' basketball team will not be celebrating in March with the PIAA Class AAA championship trophy. The athletic, attacking Saints went cold down the stretch and fell to Donegal of Mount Joy, 55-50, in a state quarterfinal Friday night at Coatesville. "We shot ourselves in the foot, and couldn't make the shots we usually do," Arrigale said. "That's how you stop runs - by scoring - and we didn't get it done.

Neumann-Goretti's bid for area boys' basketball supremacy took a severe hit when it was throttled by Chester earlier this month. With that 17-point loss behind them, the Saints, as they showed in Wednesday night's Catholic League semifinal vs. Archbishop Carroll, are ultra-focused on claiming the other prizes available to them. Fueled by a 15-0 explosion at the start of the second quarter, N-G, using its speed to the utmost, stormed past helpless Carroll, 57-34, at the Palestra.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Another former close aide to John Edwards testified Thursday about bungled efforts to keep the former presidential candidate's affair hidden from staff members, including an awkward encounter when she showed up at a hotel weeks after her work filming Edwards had ended. For months in 2006, John Davis said that staff members had been concerned that the woman hired as a videographer was becoming too close to Edwards.

Derrick Stewart and his Neumann-Goretti boys' basketball teammates did not enter Wednesday night's matchup at Father Judge expecting or wanting an all-out tussle. But the Saints, fighting through a subpar defensive effort and overcoming a flurry of three-pointers, persevered and left Mayfair with a 68-57 victory. "Sometimes it's good to have a struggle like that," said Stewart, a 6-foot-6, 215-pound senior. "It tells you how much harder you have to work the next time. " With a 5-for-12 effort from beyond the arc in the first half, the Crusaders took a 32-30 lead into intermission.

Maybe some people think the study of philosophy belongs to scholars, holed up in their ivory towers. But that's not the philosophy of the most philosophical second grader in America, Jack Smalley, age 7, of Mantua in Gloucester County. "Philosophy's not hard," he said. "It takes a lot of thinking, but that's pretty much all it takes. " On Thursday, Jack got the news, delivered in a box that included a framed certificate, a medal, a $25 check, and a letter telling him that he was the second-grade winner in the 2013 Kids Philosophy Slam contest.

Billy Cassidy knows the way all-star basketball games usually go. But that doesn't mean he has to like it. So when the conga line of alley-oops and off-the-backboard dunks ended, and it came down to winning time Sunday in the All Star Labor Classic, it's no surprise that Cassidy played a starring role. Cassidy sank a go-ahead three-pointer in overtime and pulled down a key rebound to help secure the suburban team's 118-111 victory over the city all-stars at Northeast High School.

Officially, the name of the game played at St. Joseph's University on Friday night was the PIAA District 12 Class AAA championship. Just don't expect anyone to call it that. This was really a city championship game. For the first time since 1980, the champions of the Philadelphia Catholic League and Public League met in a tournament final. And Neumann-Goretti will have no problem calling itself the city's best team after beating Imhotep Charter, 52-51, in front of a crowd of more than 3,000 at Hagen Arena.
