Kathy May sees a lot of her older brother, Chip, in her niece Bailey Greenberg. The quick first step of the Archbishop Wood junior reminds May, an assistant coach for the Vikings, the most of the way Chip Greenberg played basketball. "Her first step," May said. "[With] her long first step, she can go by anybody. He could go by anybody. He could really jump as well. They have the same calves - strong, jumper calves we call them. Her sister has them, too. " Greenberg shares more than calves, a deft move to the basket and prowess on the boards with her father.

As the regular season winds down, coaches are looking for anything to build momentum headed into their conference tournaments. This probably explains why La Salle coach John Giannini - after seeing his team shoot dismally from the free-throw line (13 for 25); turn the ball over 10 times in the first half; and ultimately fall to Rhode Island, 59-56, at Tom Gola Arena - spoke optimistically about what's left for his team. "We're extremely disappointed with a loss," Giannini said after the Explorers (15-14, 7-9 Atlantic Ten)

It was about this time a year ago when La Salle began its improbable run in the PIAA Class AAAA state playoffs. Last season's runner-up finish started with a victory at Southern. This year, the Explorers hope their triumph Thursday night at the same locale is the start of something special again. Behind stingy defense and offensive efficiency, La Salle overwhelmed George Washington, 73-44, in a District 12 seeding game to earn the third and final seed in the AAAA state playoffs. "We were definitely a little worried coming in, just because there's a lot of pressure on us," senior forward Dave Krmpotich said.

NEW YORK - La Salle didn't score in the first 5 minutes, 14 seconds of its game at Fordham on Wednesday night. And the Explorers' shooting barely improved, as they hit just 29.5 percent from the field in a 63-48 loss to the Rams at Rose Hill Gymnasium in the Bronx. "I thought it was our worst game of the year," La Salle coach John Giannini said of the 15-point loss, which is his team's largest margin of defeat this season. "I don't have an explanation as to why it was our worst game of the year.

IT WAS ABOUT this time last year when La Salle started its improbable run in the Class AAAA state playoffs. In fact, last season's runner-up finish began with a seeding-game victory at Southern High. Now, the Explorers hope last night's triumph at the same locale is the start of something special Part 2. "We were definitely a little worried coming in just because there's a lot of pressure on us," said senior forward Dave Krmpotich. "We made a deep run in states last year and if we didn't even make it this year it would've been a knock on us. But we just tried to get out there, play our game and we weren't going to let this be our last high school basketball game.

La Salle coach John Giannini wanted a specific answer from his senior center, and that is what he got. During an interview last week after a victory over Duquesne, Giannini - who actually was being interviewed at the time - asked Jerrell Wright, "Who's the most important person in our program, Jerrell?" Without hesitation, Wright, second on the team in scoring and rebounding, had an answer. "The newcomers," Wright said. "The people that are new here - freshmen and transfers . . . When they get here, our job is to make them comfortable.

Shortly after leaving the December funeral for Nate Fox, a player he coached at the University of Maine who was tragically shot and killed, La Salle coach John Giannini had a revelation. "As I went to the viewing, the only thing I could think of was how lucky I was to coach a player like Nate," Giannini said of Fox, who played professionally for 12 years overseas after playing for Giannini. "And then, as I went to my car in the parking lot, the only thing I could think about was how lucky I am to coach guys like D.J., Jerrell, and Steve.

Transfers can be program-changing players, and it's become the norm - not the exception - in college basketball. When La Salle made its surprising run to the Sweet 16 in 2013, the catalyst was Ramon Galloway, who began his career at South Carolina but helped turned the Explorers around in two seasons. Tyrone Garland, inventor of the Southwest Philly Floater that got so much attention when he won an NCAA game against Kansas State, was another transfer who keyed La Salle's run. Last season, St. Joseph's earned an NCAA tournament berth by winning the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament.
