If an NJSIAA committee ever thinks about adopting a "mercy rule" in boys' basketball, it should watch a tape of last night's Group 1 state semifinal and present it as Exhibit A: Burlington City 99, Keyport 41. Three-point-happy Burlington was nearly flawless as it trounced the Central Jersey champions at Pennsauken and earned a berth in Sunday's intriguing Group 1 state final against powerful Bloomfield Tech. The 7:30 p.m. game will be played at Rutgers in Piscataway. State semifinals usually aren't so one-sided, but the Blue Devils jumped out to leads of 12-2, 29-11 (quarter)

Anthony Smith had four acrobatic dunks, Frank Burg canned five three-point bombs, and the Burlington Township High fans - the ones with "F-A-L-C-O-N- S!" painted on their bare chests - led a rousing, fourth-quarter chorus of "It's All Oooo-ver!" Yes, it was another typical evening for the powerful Burlington Township boys' basketball team. With Smith scoring 26 points and Burg adding 22 - including the 1,000th point of his career - the Falcons trounced Keyport, 79-52, in an NJSIAA Group 1 state semifinal at Brick Memorial.

The Florence football team entered new territory this season, not very highly regarded, but unable to be swept away. Competing for the first time in Central Jersey, Florence proved to be the uninvited guest that wouldn't depart. Playing its underdog role to the hilt, Florence defeated defending Central Jersey champion Keyport, 21-14, at Neptune's Memorial Field. Florence (12-0) won its second sectional title and the first since claiming the South Jersey Group 1 crown in 1985.

Burlington City's unlikely quest for a state Group 1 girls' basketball championship ended last night at Toms River East. The South Jersey champion Blue Devils fell 13 points behind Keyport in the first half and lost the state semifinal game, 66-51. "I told the girls at halftime and again near the end of the game that they shouldn't hang their heads," Burlington coach Tim Smith said. "We've had a great season, and I'm proud of them. I don't know if it was the pressure or fatigue, but we came out sluggish tonight and just couldn't catch up. " Keyport, the Central Jersey champion, suffered through shooting woes early in the game, but led, 13-6, after the first period.

Florence hopes a change of scenery will be the secret ingredient to a championship. The Flashes (11-0) will attempt to win the program's first sectional title in 18 years when they travel to play defending Central Jersey Group 1 champion Keyport (11-0) tomorrow at 1 p.m. The game was originally scheduled for today at Kean University but was postponed because of the winter weather. When the NJSIAA reclassified the state for football before the season, Florence found itself in new territory - Central Jersey.

Film of Middle Township's performance against Keyport last night will never be used at instructional clinics. The Panthers played barely well enough to advance to the semifinals of the girls' basketball Tournament of Champions. Middle Township got past the pesky Group 1 state champion Red Raiders, 46-37, in a poorly played quarterfinal game at Elizabeth High's Dunn Sports Center. The Group 3 state champion Panthers - at 30-0 the only undefeated girls' basketball team left in New Jersey - will face Group 4 champion West Milford (28-1)

At the beginning of the season, Audubon coach Rich Horan and pitcher Brian McGettigan imagined that the young Green Wave team might have a chance to win a third straight Colonial Conference baseball title. After an 8-0 start, though, they guessed that this team quite possibly could be something special. All doubters were conquered yesterday. Audubon advanced to its first state-title game since 1975 with a 7-6 victory over Keyport in a Group 1 state semifinal game at Bordentown High School.

Top-seeded Camden Catholic (10-0) had been scheduled to play second-seeded St. Joseph-Montvale (9-2) yesterday in the state Parochial 3 final at Rutgers. The game was postponed due to snow.
