John Gallagher made his debut on the national stage when CBS cameras caught him lying prone and praying during the closing moments of St. Joseph's 81-77 overtime win over Boston College in the second round of the NCAA tournament Saturday. But Gallagher, a former Cardinal O'Hara star, wasn't merely mugging for the cameras. The Hawks guard and a few of his teammates who rarely see playing time were doing what came naturally. "We've been doing it since Game 1," Gallagher said before taking off for San Jose, Calif.

Cardinal O'Hara backcourt mates John Gallagher and Bill Thompson sat on stools in the school's locker room last week and laughed as they recalled the days when the two were mortal enemies of sorts. Mortal enemies? It can't be possible. Gallagher and Thompson are inseparable these days. "When people see me at school or during the summer at a court, the first words out of their mouth usually are, 'Where's Bill?' " Gallagher said. "I guess we are always together. " That wasn't always the case.

Among the goods on display yesterday at police headquarters was a deep-plum Gucci cocktail dress with the $1,595 price tag still in place. There were a soft, black patent-leather overcoat and a $1,400 Prada handbag. Some of the shoes alone carried price tags exceeding $800, including a diverse selection of four-inch spikes like the gold, strappy Jimmy Choo heels and the Italian-made Manolo Blahniks in red patent leather. With the exhibition - timed to announce the arrest of a woman who worked in administration at a health-care agency and is charged with stealing information from four elderly women - police warned of just how easily an identity can be stolen and used for unscrupulous purposes.

St. Joseph's Prep senior Joe Nardi was thinking of trying to be a walk-on basketball player at St. Joseph's University. That plan changed after John Gallagher was hired last month as coach at the University of Hartford. Gallagher touched base with Prep coach Speedy Morris, who was head coach at La Salle University when Gallagher was there as an assistant, and Morris passed along Nardi's name as a potential recruit. Gallagher soon made a scholarship offer, and Nardi, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound guard and long-range sniper, readily accepted.

After a terrific senior campaign during which he showed vast improvement, Archbishop Carroll's Ryan Daly is back on the free-agent market. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound sharpshooter, who announced his commitment to play basketball for coach John Gallagher and Hartford last August, reopened his recruitment last month. "I just didn't want to go there anymore," Daly said without getting into specifics. "Coach Gallagher is a great guy. I just wasn't feeling it in my heart. " Daly, a soft-spoken wing guard with a cool demeanor under pressure, averaged 21.7 points and seven rebounds while sparking Carroll to a 23-4 record and the second round of the PIAA Class 3A state playoffs.

The infielders came in, so Matt Rocchi bounced one over their heads. Rocchi drove in Matt Romano with a bases-loaded infield single in the bottom of the ninth to secure a 5-4 win for Archbishop Ryan over visiting Bonner-Prendergast in a Catholic League baseball game Tuesday. Romano, who started the inning with a single and a stolen base, finished 4 for 4 with three runs. In other Catholic League action: Sam Naftulin drove in Angel Alicea with an infield single in the bottom of the eighth to send host Father Judge to a 5-4 victory over Conwell-Egan.

At night, after John Gallagher prosecuted gang and drug violence, his sporadic search resumed. The assistant U.S. attorney, based in Philadelphia, scoured the Internet for hints of Val James, the first American-born black man to play in the NHL. There were no interviews, zero traces, and Gallagher suspected that James confronted cruel backlash in his attempt to crack a sport dominated by whites. A tip buried in the comments beneath video showing James in a hockey fight led Gallagher in 2012 to Great Wolf Lodge, a water park in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

I WILL NEVER forget the day in 2010 at the Palestra when Jerome Allen went from interim head coach at Penn to permanent head coach. He spoke from the heart about his love for his school, how much it had meant to the kid who left 4601 Germantown Ave. for Penn to become a student and one of the best players in school history during one of its greatest eras and his absolute belief that he and his staff would get it done. I believed him. Two years later, Penn was playing at Princeton with a share of the Ivy League title on the line.

The Archbishop Wood girls' basketball team, understandably, is trying to move past the recent resignation of head coach John Gallagher and concentrate on achieving its postseason goals. "We're just focused on basketball and playing for each other," senior Aubree Brown said after the Vikings bested Archbishop Ryan, 39-34, in a Catholic League playoff semifinal Thursday night at Philadelphia University. Gallagher resigned early last week over allegations that he sent anonymous e-mails to college coaches in hopes of jeopardizing the NCAA eligibility of three Nigerian players at Catholic League rival Neumann-Goretti.

HERSHEY - Archbishop Wood coach John Gallagher gave his team a speech before their first game on Dec. 15. It was his first year as head coach, but he could see where the season was going. He told them about the quality of people sitting in the room with him at that very moment. He told them the basketball season was a marathon, not a sprint, and they would have to climb the proverbial ladder. "I said that speech on December 15th because I thought I was going to be here tonight," Gallagher said Saturday night after the PIAA Class AAA championship game.
