Camden's Tavaris Headen didn't get off to the quickest of starts while his team did the opposite, but when the Panthers slowed down, Headen showed his explosive scoring ability. Headen scored 18 of his 25 points in the second half Tuesday night as the second-seeded Panthers defeated No. 4 seed Timber Creek, 67-54, in the South Jersey Group 3 basketball championship before an overflow crowd at Camden. It was the second consecutive sectional title for the Panthers (20-10), who will face Lawrence in Thursday's 4 p.m. state semifinal at Eastern.

There always are echoes of old times in Clarence Turner Gymnasium, where the center circle is painted to commemorate 11 championship seasons and the tiled walls are adorned with banners that honor some of the best players and teams in state history. But the past truly comes alive when Tavaris Headen takes the court for the Panthers. It's not that Headen, a 5-foot-9 junior guard, has the same skill level of some former Camden greats, although the clever lefty generated 20 points, six steals, and six assists in Saturday's 71-59 victory over Moorestown in the South Jersey Group 3 semifinals.

Fifteen days of ballhandling drills. Fifteen days of wind sprints. Fifteen days of free throws, shooting drills, and defensive slides. According to junior Kate Skalski, that was the difference for St. Basil on Friday night, as the Panthers defeated Delco Christian, 47-28, to win the PIAA District 1 Class AA girls' basketball title at Villanova's Pavilion. Entering the final, the Panthers hadn't played a game in 15 days, and in that period spent a lot of time getting better, especially on defense.

Don't count Pope John Paul II's Brent Mahoney among those who view accounting as a boring field of study. "I took it in high school," he said. "I actually enjoyed it. I'm probably going to major in accounting in college. " Wednesday night at Plymouth Whitemarsh, Mahoney crunched some serious numbers. He collected 13 points, 9 rebounds, and 2 assists and helped the third-seeded Panthers pull past second-seeded Glen Mills, 48-42, in a PIAA District 1 Class AAA boys' basketball semifinal.

For what Imhotep Charter coach Andre Noble called "some bad practice efforts," Abraham Massaley recently lost his starting position. "I'm not used to coming off the bench," the senior guard said. "But at this point of the season, you have to put your ego aside and just play hard. " Sunday at Temple's Liacouras Center, it Massaley's late basket lifted the Panthers to a 67-66 triumph over Rysheed Jordan and never-say-die Roberts Vaux in a thrilling Public League final. His deciding field goal, on a left-side drive, came with 11 seconds to play.

The lasting snapshot of the Flyers' 5-2 loss to Florida on Thursday: frustrated goalie Ilya Bryzgalov getting pulled from the game, skating off the ice, and throwing his stick as he walked down the tunnel. One night after they stormed back for an exhilarating victory against one of the NHL's elite teams, the Flyers were embarrassed by the lowly Panthers at the Wells Fargo Center. Maybe they were sapped from their 6-5 comeback win in Pittsburgh the previous night. Or maybe inconsistency is just the calling card of this 8-10-1 team.

KIMMO TIMONEN said he has seen it "a million times" in his career. The Panthers, losers of five straight since their last "trap game" win in Philadelphia 2 weeks ago, saw it from a million miles away. "You saw a tired Flyers team today," Timonen said. "We played a really hard, charged game [at Pittsburgh], got a big two points and got home at 2 o'clock [in the morning]. We had bad sleep [Wednesday] night. The hardest game to win is when you come back home after a road trip. " It's even harder, apparently, after knocking off one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference a night earlier.
