When Chrissie Donahue, a junior basketball star at La Salle University, was playing for Cardinal O'Hara, she seemingly did everything she could to establish herself as one of the top high school players in the country. In her final two seasons, the 5-foot-11 forward averaged 21 points and 10 rebounds, helping a star-studded Lions squad to a remarkable 50-5 record and national prominence. Still, coaches with many upper-level Division I programs felt she was too small or too slow to play in the frontcourt at the next level.

In 1972, the Rev. Joseph Denney, then the athletic director at Roman Catholic High School, asked basketball coach Speedy Morris to take on John Miller as one of his assistants. "We really didn't have any room for him, but Father Denney laid such a guilt trip on me - telling me that if I didn't take him, he was going to go back in the seminary - I took him on, and he's been a thorn in my side ever since," Morris, now the coach at St. Joseph's Prep, said with a huge laugh. For Miller, who admittedly had little basketball-playing talent, that was the launch of a career that has made him one of the area's most successful coaches - high school or college.

Fittingly for a player who does a lot on the basketball court and makes it look easy - from running the point to jumping center, from blocking shots to making touch passes in midair, from hitting three-pointers to driving to the hoop - Alex Louin gets the star treatment at Mount St. Joseph. Some of her friends, numbering five to two or three dozen, support her during games. They sometimes have their faces painted, with "Alex" scrawled on their foreheads. They shout her name. They chant her Twitter handle, "How u Louin?"

Each fall, Mount St. Joseph girls' basketball coach John Miller updates the brochure for his summer camp to include his current win totals. One-hundred and fifty wins in nine years of coaching high school boys. "A nice round number," Miller said. Then 317 wins in 18 years as La Salle University's women's coach. "Easy to remember because it's St. Patrick's Day," he said. And after some math, he realized he sat just 13 wins shy of 200 at the Mount. "Wow, we're going to hit 200 this year," Miller thought.

Truth to tell, it probably felt good to relax under the Eagle in the Grand Court of the Lord & Taylor store in Center City. But Lisa and John Miller, with their son, Aidan, 3, also were more than a little annoyed. They had come - along with nine other family members - from Upper Darby and planned to take their son to the light show, the tradition started decades ago at the former John Wanamaker flagship store at 13th and Market Streets. But when the Miller clan settled in under the bird at about 1:30 p.m., they learned the next show wouldn't be until 3 p.m. At 1:45, about 30 folks had gathered at the Eagle.

Former Eagles linebacker Kevin Reilly felt sick to his stomach when he heard Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett was paralyzed during a game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday. "It could have happened to me," said Reilly, who spent two of his three seasons in the NFL with the Eagles in the mid-1970s. Reilly, who is now a radio announcer for the Eagles on stations WYSP-FM (94.1) and WDEL-AM (1150), lost his left arm, a portion of his left shoulder, and five ribs to a desmoid tumor - a rare scar-tissue tumor - in 1979, four years after his NFL career ended.

The process was always the same for Libby Tacka when she went on college visits between her sophomore and junior years. A member of the Mount St. Joseph girls' basketball team, the guard knew she wanted to play in Division I at the next level. An ambitious student, she also knew she wanted to major in something regarding science or engineering. Tacka visited about 10 schools during the recruiting process, usually with her parents, Jacquie and Larry; sometimes only her father when her mother couldn't get off work.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Mount St. Joseph performed well on offense in the first half of its PIAA Class AAAA basketball playoff against Palmyra, scoring 27 points and committing only two turnovers. Problem was, John Miller's squad allowed the Cougars, with their efficient motion offense, to put up 34 points. Since the Magic's goal is to keep foes under 40 for the game, that spelled serious trouble. Palmrya, of District 3, pulled away with an 11-3 run in the third quarter and ousted the Mount, 57-38, Tuesday night in a second-round contest at Bethlehem Freedom.

"She's the engine," Mount St. Joseph basketball coach John Miller says. "She makes us go. " Who is she, exactly? That would be Mary Kate Ulasewicz. The senior point guard deftly handles the ball, is in charge of inbounding it, and never loses her cool. That composure has come to define the Magic this season. And she always has her arms outstretched - hands up - on defense. Ulasewicz's poise and good decision-making were on display Wednesday night at La Salle High, as the Magic defeated Gwynedd Mercy, 29-26.

John Miller sat at home on Tuesday afternoon after finishing another day of teaching at Roman Catholic and reflected back on his 38 years of head coaching. The Mount St. Joseph girls' basketball coach was a few hours before tipoff of the Magic's 36-25 win over visiting St. Basil, which earned Miller his 700th career win. He thought back to his first head coaching gig: Archbishop Ryan's boys' team. Miller, 68, said he feared then for his ability to stick around as a head coach.

Council Rock North's Jess Gerber had been hurting the Mount St. Joseph girls' basketball team all afternoon. A three-pointer here. A three-pointer there. A three-pointer to start the second quarter. A three from NBA range. So early in the third quarter, Mount St. Joseph coach John Miller put Libby Tacka on Gerber for the first time. The switch did the trick, and Mount St. Joseph held on for a 47-42 win Saturday. "It wasn't a Michelangelo," Miller said. "I'd rather have an ugly win than a pretty loss.

Alex Louin said the Mount St. Joseph basketball team didn't talk about it. Not a single word. But the Magic surely were thinking about it, the senior guard conceded, and they weren't going to let it happen again. The it refers to Friday night's return to the Cheltenham gym, site of a heartbreaking, one-point loss in the first round of the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament last year. Back on that court for the first round of this season's state playoffs, the Magic dominated every facet of the game against Cardinal O'Hara and defeated the Lions in impressive fashion, 68-32.
