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.

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.
