After transferring to Philadelphia Electrical and Technology Charter for this school year and joining the basketball squad, Larenz Thurman flew mostly under the radar while serving as floor general. "It was a big transition for him," Chargers coach James "Flames" Lewis said. "He didn't want to do too much too soon. He's starting to come into his own now. " With the poised Thurman producing 18 points, including the deciding basket with 24 seconds left in overtime, PET held off Holy Ghost Prep, 53-52, in a PIAA Class AAA second-round thriller at Colonial Elementary School in Plymouth Meeting.

For the diehards who showed up at the Liacouras Center for the last time this season, the Temple Owls rewarded them Tuesday night with an 86-78 overtime victory over Central Florida. Playing the last home game of his career, Dalton Pepper led the Owls with 26 points. Anthony Lee contributed 20 points and 10 rebounds, while point guard Will Cummings had 23 points on 7-of-11 shooting. None of that exactly undoes a historic season of misery, but the Owls (8-21, 3-14) at least have a chance to climb out of the American Athletic Conference cellar when they finish the regular season Saturday at South Florida.

It gave them 11 wins in which they have trailed in the third period this season, a franchise record. Lecavalier, who notched his 900th career point on the goal, scored on a left-circle shot that appeared to deflect off Washington defender Karl Alzner.
