The postseason run of South Jersey Group 3 champion Ocean City ended Wednesday night in a 75-40 loss to national powerhouse Neptune in the state girls' basketball semifinals at Williamstown. The Red Raiders made a strong run through South Jersey Group 3 but met their match in one of the biggest, strongest, and fastest teams in the state. "We never quit, and that's all you can ask for," Ocean City coach Paul Baruffi said. "I'm proud of the team, and I'm not going to let this put any damper on the season.

The fourth quarter was all Shakena Richardson and all Neptune. Richardson, a 5-foot-5 junior guard, took over in the final eight minutes to lead Neptune to a 67-48 victory over St. John Vianney last night in the Tournament of Champions title game for girls' basketball. Richardson finished with 20 points and nine assists for Neptune (30-1), the Group 3 state champion and top seed. Senior forward Sehmonyeh Allen added 18 points, including a big three-point jumper to open the fourth quarter.

The faded pink banner served as a painful reminder to Camden fans of one of the storied basketball program's few low moments. In a sold-out gymnasium where 1,000 spectators crammed in, and many more outside watched through windows, the banner - which read, "Neptune 1981 State Group 4 basketball champions" - provided extra incentive to Dajuan Wagner, Camden's multitalented junior who is well-schooled in the team's history. In 1981, Camden was 27-0 and ranked No. 1 in one national poll.

When man challenges the sea, Neptune often throws a bit extra into the bargain - more hardships and more rewards. These solitary sojourns inspire some fascinating tales. Listeners get everything but the discomfort of the salt spray and the danger of an indifferent ocean. There's Philip S. Weld, who at age 65 won the OSTAR (the London Observer's Single-handed Trans-Atlantic Race) in 1980. Weld, singing through the North Atlantic gales, outfoxed his younger, sturdier competitors.

What could have been a classic championship game turned into another dominant exhibition by the boys' basketball team at St. Anthony of Jersey City. In a script that has become familiar since the Tournament of Champions' inception in 1989, St. Anthony once again stands at the top of the state honor roll. The top-seeded Friars increased their record total to eight titles with yesterday's surprisingly easy 69-49 win over No. 2 Neptune in the championship at the Continental Airlines Arena.

Score one for Plan A. Rancocas Valley head coach Ron Powell and his assistants spent the hour before last night's Group 3 boys' basketball state semifinal game against Neptune watching the Neptune players shoot. Evidently, he liked what he saw. "They didn't really have anybody shoot consistently well," Powell said. "We figured Plan A was to play zone and make them hit from the outside. "Plan A was pretty good. " It was indeed. Rancocas Valley, ranked No. 8 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, played zone for only the second time this season.

When Group 4 boys' basketball state champion Lenape meets Neptune at 6 tonight in the Tournament of Champions quarterfinal at Toms River North, the teams will bring similar philosophies but opposite styles. Both teams have balanced offenses, but that is where the similarity ends. Fourth-seeded Neptune (23-5) likes to employ the transition game. "We press and run and push the tempo up as much as we can," Neptune coach Ken O'Donnell said in a phone interview yesterday. No. 5 seed Lenape, 24-8 and ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, can play the running game, but the Indians also thrive in the half-court style, in which their defense is proficient.

Terrifying brain surgery a few months after Teena Handline's wedding prevented her and her husband from going on a honeymoon in 2011. While recovering in the ICU from the surgery, Handline said there was one thing that kept her sane: music. The 25-year-old Glen Mills resident will take the stage Saturday afternoon as one of the 29 finalists of the first Jersey Shore Karaoke Idol, a singing competition in which aspiring vocalists will compete for a top cash prize of $10,000 while raising money for the Jersey Shore Convention & Visitors Bureau in Neptune.

VINNY CURRY thought he had died and gone to heaven 2 years ago when the team he had grown up rooting for, the Eagles, selected the Neptune, N.J., native in the second round of the draft. Eighteen games into his career, though, heaven seemed a lot more like hell to him. As a rookie, the defensive end out of Marshall played only 89 snaps in six games and failed to register a sack, which was kind of his thing at Marshall - he had 23 sacks and 10 forced fumbles his last 2 years there.

THERE'S good news for the more than 90,000 people who helped fund the "Veronica Mars" movie through a Kickstarter campaign that raised $5.7 million after reaching its original $2 million goal within hours. They got what they paid for. They won't make any money - how many backers do? - but for fans who've never quite gotten over the series' open-ended departure from the CW in 2007, the movie is an opportunity to return to fictional Neptune, Calif., for what may be the best high-school reunion weekend ever - complete with murder, a sex tape and the always gratifying discovery that the popular kids haven't aged as well as the cool underdogs.

ATLANTIC CITY - Hurricane Sandy victims told members of the New Jersey Legislature during a session here Thursday that they have grown weary of "Stronger Than the Storm" ads, and are exhausted by months of futile attempts to seek assistance in repairing and holding on to their storm-ravaged homes. "I haven't seen one billboard or ad that tells people exactly how they can be stronger than the storm. . . . So many people still don't know where to go for help," said Staci Berger, executive director of the Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey.

The first positive sign, in a strange way, was the tears. Camden ended one season but appears to have begun a new era, one in which games and wins in March are common. The Panthers' season concluded with Wednesday night's 63-46 loss to Neptune in a state Group 3 semifinal at Winslow Township. The Panthers won the South Jersey Group 3 title, finished 18-13, and set the foundation for a future that might look like much of the past. Few schools have a richer basketball heritage than Camden, but after missing last year's state tournament and going through an in-season coaching change and a 3-17 start, this young team appears back.
