The Washington Township boys' basketball team has a lot of good players. Only one of them is named Spencer Cook. "He does everything for us," Washington Township coach Matt Kiser said. "He's so smart, such a hard worker. He sets the tone for us. " The Minutemen are on the brink of one of the most anticipated seasons in the recent history of the program. Washington Township begins the campaign as the No. 4 team in The Inquirer's preseason Top 25 after a strong summer and a fall season that included an 11-0 mark in a highly competitive league at Paul VI. "That really built our confidence," Cook said.

On Belmont Plateau, Neumann University's Dan Rowe had just passed a runner going in the opposite direction. The other runner shouted to Rowe that one of their fellow competitors was passed out in the woods. A lifeguard this past summer for the North Wildwood Beach Patrol, Rowe ran another 50 yards or so and turned a corner, seeing two trail walkers with the fallen runner near the back of the pack. This was Sept. 22, in the 33d annual Philadelphia Metropolitan Cross Country Championships.

If you know one thing about Herb Magee, you know he's consistent. The 68-year-old Philadelphia University men's basketball coach follows the same daily routine. He has coached the same way throughout his 43-season career. And he's gives the same response when asked about coaching milestones. Rewind to Jan. 31, 2007, the night before Magee broke the record for the most wins in Division II history. "My focus is only on the next game and doing everything we can to try to win and make the [NCAA]

The sun isn't up, the morning news isn't even on, but Herb Magee won't sleep. He never does, not past 4:45 anyway. He has things to do, beginning with easing his wife, Geri, into consciousness so they can walk a few miles around a quiet subdivision in nearby Wayne before most sane people are awake. Geri's not a morning person, but Herb, he thrives within the familiar constraints of a routine. He walks the same route, shops at the same grocery store, has the same breakfast of bran cereal, blueberries, and an English muffin today as he did last year, and the year before that, and the year before that.

It was typical of a career spent just out of the spotlight. Philadelphia University senior Tayron Thomas dribbled around a screen and hit a three-pointer just before halftime, and then he was out the door and in the locker room by the time the P.A. announcer told the crowd he had just gone over 2,000 points in his career. By the time Herb Magee's team got past Holy Family, 82-73, last night, Thomas had 30 points, making all 11 free throws he tried, and adding eight assists. He now has 2,018 points, putting him third on the school's all-time list, behind Randy Stover, who scored 2,369 points from 1988 to '92, and his coach, Magee, who got his 2,235 points from 1959 to '63. Magee said you won't find a better player in Division II than his 6-foot-2 guard, who leads D-II in scoring with 26.4 points per game.
