It has been a frustrating season for Penncrest coach Jim Wilson and his Lions. With several returning starters with outstanding athletic ability, Wilson figured his Lions would fare well in the Central League. But the best-laid plans of mice and men. . . . Last Tuesday, the Lions easily defeated the Lower Merion Aces, 49-35, in a conference battle. But Friday night, the Lions could not maintain winning form and fell to the visiting Marple Newtown Tigers, 69-68. "We didn't have anyone who could hit the three-point shot when we needed it," Wilson said.

Radnor kept pace early on, had trouble in the middle periods, and lost 56-43 to Penncrest at home last Thursday. "They had too much firepower," Radnor coach Walt Katuzny said of the Lions. "Their center, Lenny Jenkins, hurt us inside and we again didn't shoot well. " Penncrest quickly turned a 12-10 opening-period lead into an 8-point advantage at the half, 26-18. The Lions then took a 39-26 lead before the start of the final quarter. "We got good shots but we didn't make the high-percentage shots," Katuzny said.

MAKING THE Eagles a 4-point favorite against anybody is a leap - they haven't won by more than 2. And the Lions, who weren't as good as their 5-0 start last season, aren't as bad as their 1-3 start this season. If they've really gotten themselves together during the bye week, this could be trouble. But the oddsmakers are right. If the Eagles really are the team they think they are, they should win this at home, and they shouldn't need any late fourth-quarter heroics to do it. Nnamdi Asomugha said Thursday the Birds' adventures covering Larry Fitzgerald a few weeks back taught them a valuable lesson heading into this week and Calvin Johnson.

Bobby Ross is a very popular unemployed head coach. According to the Detroit Free Press, the Lions have put their search for a new coach on hold, apparently in the belief they are close to reaching an agreement with the former San Diego coach. Meanwhile, Ross interviewed for the Atlanta job Wednesday and appears to be the Falcons' leading choice. Ross, who also was interviewed by the St. Louis Rams, returned to his home in San Diego late yesterday to discuss his options with his wife, Alice.

Methacton's Warriors hammered out an early lead against visiting Lower Moreland Tuesday night and accelerated to a 69-54 Suburban One American Conference victory. "The key to the loss was our lack of intensity on defense, mostly in the first quarter," said Lower Moreland coach Russ Mitchell. "We must play intense defense to be successful. My philosophy is that your offense comes from your defense. " The Lions (4-4 overall, 2-2 in the league) also missed many easy shots during the first eight minutes of play, during which they fell behind to 17-10.

Five of the last six games have been nightmares for Academy of the New Church basketball coach Andy Davis. After jumping out to a 6-1 record, the Lions lost five straight games. It wasn't the losses that hurt Davis as much as the way in which the team lost. The Lions got back on the winning track Friday as they defeated host Germantown Friends, 52-36, in a nonleague game. "We were losing because we weren't playing intelligently," Davis said. "I've told the kids all along that our efforts are more important than our results.

When Wyncote Academy prepared to meet Shipley School in Bryn Mawr on Wednesday, the Lions knew they were already facing a much more formidable foe. "We had no drills, no warmups, no practices," said Wyncote Academy coach Steve Feiner, whose team was in the midst of the effects of influenza. Then, almost inevitably, they also felt the effects of Shipley, as they dropped the nonleague game by a score of 102-64. Shipley raced out to a lead of 23-12 after one quarter. The Lions came back to score 17 points in the second period but still trailed by 41-29 at the half.

Nice As F*#k (Love's Way ***) This week's three-woman supergroup - on the heels of Neko Case, k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs' self-titled album - is Nice As F*#k , the indie trio fronted by Jenny Lewis, with Erika Forster of Au Revoir Simone and Tennessee Thomas of The Like. The band that debuted at a Bernie Sanders campaign rally has surprise-released this nine-song, self-titled debut, complete with an amusingly grandiose bio by Father John Misty. Under the byline "God's favorite evolved male music journalist," he calls the trio "objectively the best all-female band in the last 25 years (like that should even matter, you know, do you describe RADIOHEAD as an 'ALL OPPRESSOR BAND NO YOU DON'T')

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Sen. Bernie Sanders gave a lively speech that pounded his message about income inequality to a packed house Tuesday night at Pennsylvania State University. And he pounded his rival for not sharing transcripts of paid speeches that he said must have been "Shakespearean prose. " Thinking ahead to next week's Pennsylvania primary, Sanders spoke even as New Yorkers still were voting in that state's primary, where polls closed at 9 p.m. Hillary Clinton trounced Sanders there - but when he took the stage in Recreation Hall just after 7, he noted that it was too soon to know the night's victor.

Basketball players don't normally like to talk about air balls. They are definitely something that players, coaches, and teams try to avoid. Unless you are Maura Hendrixson and the Cardinal O'Hara girls' squad. Then the air ball has become something of a joke and a sign of good things to come. "Anytime [Hendrixson] shoots an air ball in the first half, she makes big threes [later]," O'Hara coach Linus McGinty said. "This has happened like five times, seriously. " On Friday night in the first round of the PIAA Class 4A tournament, Hendrixson shot an air ball in the first half.

The upstart toppled the dynasty Saturday afternoon at Council Rock South. The New Hope-Solebury girls' basketball team had not won a district title since 1979. "Thirty-seven long years," said New Hope-Solebury coach Andy Krasna. St. Basil Academy was going for its fourth straight District 1 Class 2A title. But the Lions emerged with a 32-31 win and the championship. The Panthers were 1 minute, 30 seconds away from the four-peat, leading by 31-27. New Hope-Solebury had scored just seven points in the second half.

The New Hope-Solebury girls' basketball players blast music whenever they are together - at practice, on bus rides, during pregame warm-ups. Their playlist features rap hits from the last 10 years, including Lil Wayne's 6-foot-7 and Migos's Pipe It Up. "We love hard-core rap," senior guard Karli Burns said. "Pipe It Up is our theme song. " No one loves these hype sessions more than Lions coach Andy Krasna, a quiet, mild-mannered, 57-year-old. "They are fun girls to be around," Krasna said.

MAODO LO scored 21 points and had five rebounds and Grant Mullins added 11 points and six steals as host Columbia beat Penn, 63-53, on Friday night, snapping the Quakers' two-game winning streak. Leading, 28-24, at halftime, the Lions emerged from the break with a 7-0 run in the first two minutes. The Quakers then ran off a 14-2 run to cut the deficit to 41-40 with 11:30 left on Jackson Donahue's three-pointer. But Columbia (17-7, 6-1 Ivy League) countered with an 11-0 run over a three-minute span to put the game away.

Jaleel Hatcher spent some of his summer with the Gloucester football team. "I didn't play," Hatcher said. "I just wanted to work out with them. I wanted to get more physical. " There is still lots of finesse to Hatcher's game on the basketball court. He can handle, create space, score with either hand around the rim. Hatcher was averaging 20.6 points through Wednesday for a team that had won 13 of its last 15 games. He was nearing 1,000 career points in just his second season with the Lions.

About 11 o'clock Saturday morning, three lions showed up among the apples, grapes, and lettuces arranged in the packed aisles of Iovine Bros. Produce in Reading Terminal Market. To the beat of drums so loud that the floorboards vibrated, the yellow and red lions ducked and wove, stopping customers over at DiNic's Roast Pork in mid-bite. One man held a sugar cone from Bassetts Ice Cream in one hand and a phone in the other, snapping pictures as the traditional lion dancers snaked their way around the market.

Penn State has made history in bowl games over the years, compiling the second best win percentage among teams with at least 20 appearances and the third most victories. The 1967 Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., was where Joe Paterno coached in the first of his 37 bowl games. The Nittany Lions will be in Jacksonville again later this month to prepare for what is now called the TaxSlayer Bowl on Jan. 2 against Georgia. However, coach James Franklin, who was just 4 years old when the Lions played their last Gator Bowl, in 1976, won't be focused on his team's bowl history.

DETROIT - Bill Davis spent Thanksgiving searching for solutions at Ford Field. "I blitzed on almost half the calls," the Eagles defensive coordinator said. "I blitzed a lot more than I have in the last couple of weeks. We had doubles, we had brackets, we moved in and out of coverages. " One glimpse at the final score - Detroit Lions 45, Eagles 14 - told you that none of it worked. After forcing a three-and-out on the Lions' opening drive, the Eagles defense surrendered five touchdowns and a field goal without getting a single stop on Detroit's next six possessions.
