The Charlotte Bobcats re-signed Hatboro-Horsham product Matt Carroll, brother of former St. Joseph's star Pat Carroll. Carroll joined the Bobcats late last season after he was called up from Roanoke of the NBA Development League. He played in 25 games for Charlotte, averaging 9.0 points and 2.4 assists in 17.2 minutes. "We are excited that Matt chose to return to Charlotte and continue to build upon last year's start," coach Bernie Bickerstaff said.

Matt Carroll has a new best friend. It's Mark Ridgeway, the trainer at Hatboro-Horsham High. Carroll, the sensational sophomore for the Hatters, spent all of last Thursday with Ridgeway, even having his schoolwork sent to the trainer's room. He had suffered a sprained right ankle during Wednesday's practice, and was trying to get it ready for last Friday night's basketball game at Plymouth-Whitemarsh. That didn't happen, and the Hatters lost, 85-44. So his next goal is to be ready for this weekend's tournament at Blackhawk High in Beaver Falls, enabling Carroll to make a triumphant return to western Pennsylvania.

Matt Carroll was starting to wonder. In a little more than one year, he had been cut by the New York Knicks, Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors. He still felt he had the ability to play in the NBA, and still was focused to reach that goal. But when would it happen? "Mentally, it can be tough," said Carroll, a former star at Hatboro-Horsham High and Notre Dame. "I was never cut from a team prior to being in the NBA. When a team doesn't want you, it doesn't feel good at first.

All around him, teammates and coaches barked and made gestures during a timeout and gave every indication that, yes, the heat was being felt. Meanwhile, Matt Carroll sat on Hatboro-Horsham High's bench in the northeast corner of the Palestra, looking around and calmly using a towel to ever-so-deliberately wipe away sweat. He didn't growl. He didn't grimace. He didn't do one thing that would grate on anyone's nerves. When the timeout ended and the Hatters walked back onto the court, Carroll grouped his teammates for a quick session of calm advice.

Even though he has watched his older brother bounce around professional basketball like a bad pass, Pat Carroll still dreams about an NBA career. "I know it's kind of a bizarre job," Carroll said yesterday before departing for Portsmouth, Va., for this week's pre-NBA draft tournament. Matt Carroll, who like his younger brother had a superb collegiate career as a three-point gunner, had been on the rosters of the Knicks, Trail Blazers, Spurs and Warriors the last two years before an outstanding stint in the NBA's developmental league finally won him a steady job with the Bobcats late this season.

Last week in New York, new Notre Dame basketball coach Matt Doherty said: "Philly's been good to us. We're coming back. " He was not kidding.

The 6-4 Jones, nephew of former Pennsbury hoops stars Gary Jones (La Salle) and Mike Jones (Rutgers), averaged 17 points last season as Pennsbury, under coach Frank Sciolla, won more games (26)

Before every NBA game, the officials meet with a player from each team. One of the things they do is pick the ball to use. The meeting probably never got more attention than it did last night before Minnesota's 102-96 win over the Bobcats in Charlotte, marking the return of the leather ball - an unprecedented midseason equipment change to appease players and coaches. The ball chosen? A newer-looking ball, more colorful than some of the more worn balls used in pregame warmups.

On the night before he was scheduled to announce his college choice, Matt Carroll and his family were keeping their own counsel.

West Chester University's Matt Carroll may be the only quarterback in college football who has a scholarship still on the books at one school while he plays at another. Carroll starts at quarterback for West Chester, but he may end up getting his degree from Northeastern, where he began his college career. Confused yet? All this stems from Northeastern's dropping football following the 2009 season. Carroll, a Unionville High graduate, had become Northeastern's starting quarterback that season . . . then suddenly didn't have a team.

Chris Paul had 15 points and 15 assists, and visiting New Orleans won for the seventh time in eight games, 105-89 over trade-depleted Charlotte last night. David West and Peja Stojakovic each scored 17 points for New Orleans (12-6), which led by as many as 23 points in the second quarter and held a comfortable lead the rest of the way. Tyson Chandler had 13 points and 11 rebounds before all the starters left the game for the final period. Rookie D.J. Augustin scored a career-high 28 points to lead Charlotte, which took the floor with a depleted lineup shortly after a multiplayer trade that sent leading scorer Jason Richardson to Phoenix.

When the Charlotte Bobcats waived Jeff McInnis last week they sent a clear message to Raymond Felton: Prove you can lead the team at point guard. The early results are better than the Bobcats could have hoped. Showing his range, finishing around the basket and directing a crisp offense, Felton has led Charlotte on a surprising four-game winning streak. The latest victory came last night, when Felton had 23 points and 11 assists as the Bobcats downed visiting Atlanta, 108-93.

Houston Rockets center Yao Ming and guard Tracy McGrady have been called one of the NBA's best scoring tandems. The Charlotte Bobcats won't dispute that. McGrady and Yao led the visiting Rockets back from a seven-point deficit in the fourth quarter to an 85-82 win last night. Yao scored a season-high 34 points, including a pair of free throws with 20.4 seconds left to put Houston in front, and McGrady had 12 of his 26 points in the final quarter as the Rockets won their third straight game.

Matt Carroll is coming home with a new contract and a new outlook. The contract came this summer, when the former Hatboro-Horsham High star signed a six-year, $27 million deal to remain with the Charlotte Bobcats. The outlook for the Bobcats has changed, as well, after they went 77-169 in their first three seasons. Charlotte is being mentioned as a potential Eastern Conference playoff team. Carroll, a 6-foot-6 swingman, and the Bobcats will make their only appearance at the Wachovia Center when they play the 76ers at 7 tonight.

He just signed a six-year contract worth a reported $27 million, and his boss is Michael Jordan. Things couldn't get much better for Charlotte Bobcats shooting guard Matt Carroll, a 1999 graduate of Hatboro-Horsham High School who paid his dues leading up to this newfound NBA security. Carroll signed his deal last month with the Bobcats after averaging 12.1 points and shooting 41.6 percent from three-point range and 90.4 percent from the foul line last season. That's not bad for a player who, before going to Charlotte late in the 2004-05 season, had been cut in training camp by the New York Knicks and Golden State Warriors, and had brief stints with the Portland Trail Blazers and San Antonio Spurs.

The locker room was quiet and LeBron James was accepting blame - not what the Cleveland Cavaliers planned heading into tonight's showdown with NBA-leading Dallas. Gerald Wallace had 27 points and 11 rebounds, Adam Morrison hit the go-ahead three-pointer in overtime and the host Charlotte Bobcats stunned Cleveland, 108-100, last night to snap the Cavaliers' eight-game winning streak. Cleveland, which had been nearly flawless in its winning streak, fell apart down the stretch against one of the NBA's worst teams, blowing a 10-point, fourth-quarter lead.

In a season full of "uh-oh" nights for the 76ers, this might have been one of the worst. The Sixers couldn't shut down the offense of the Charlotte Bobcats, who ranked next-to-last in field-goal percentage in the NBA going into last night's action. The Sixers didn't make free throws. They missed their share of layups, plus two dunks. Their top scorer hit only three of 12 shots. Their misery finally ended about 9:30 last night at Charlotte Bobcats Arena, and the Sixers left saddled with a 102-87 loss to the Bobcats, who recorded their fourth consecutive win. "Tonight was just bad," Sixers forward Andre Iguodala said.

The 76ers keep trying to make a habit of winning, but their bad habits keep getting in the way. The Sixers fell behind Charlotte by 17 in the first half last night, spent the entire game trying to come back, and finally took the lead with a little more than three minutes remaining. But they couldn't finish the job and fell, 89-83, at Charlotte Bobcats Arena. Instead of winning two in a row for the first time since Dec. 22 and 23, the Sixers fell to 10-27 with the 19th loss in their last 21 road games.
