THE PAGAN stationed on a corner of Atlantic Avenue in Wildwood stood with his burly arms crossed over his belly, guarding the infamous motorcycle club's hotel-turned-fortress like a living, breathing gargoyle. Behind him, yellow caution tape and blue tarps draped the Binns Motor Inn - a signal from the Pagan's Motorcycle Club for "citizens" and nosy cops to keep out during the 2011 Roar to the Shore biker rally this month. It's the same hotel where federal prosecutors say that leaders of the Pagan's Long Island chapter at last year's rally told their minions to prepare for death or prison as they plotted a hand-grenade attack on the rival Hells Angels.

St. Bonaventure was fairly confident it was already in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1978, even going into last night's Atlantic Ten Conference semifinal against Dayton. Now the Bonnies have no doubts. They lost every bit of an 11-point halftime lead at the First Union Spectrum, actually fell behind by 37-36 with eight minutes left, then roared back to a 56-50 victory that removed all doubts. Tim Winn, who led all scorers with 20 points, quickly hit a three-pointer and the Bonnies went on a 9-0 run to give them some breathing room.

Last time he was back in Philadelphia, the Rev. Leon Sullivan joked: "I'm 77 years old, but I keep going, like the bunny in the commercial. " That was last year, and he was wrong - as he knew he would be. "The Lion of Zion" (Zion Baptist Church in North Philadelphia, that is) is dead. But what a legacy he has left us: The Opportunities Industrialization Centers he founded in Philadelphia and continued to administer as the movement spread worldwide. The North Philadelphia apartment complex, Zion Gardens; shopping center, Progress Plaza, and Progress Human Servvices Center - prototypes of inner-city, minority-owned, self-help business, retirement and assisted-living ventures throughout the nation.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Sen. Bernie Sanders gave a lively speech that pounded his message about income inequality to a packed house Tuesday night at Pennsylvania State University. And he pounded his rival for not sharing transcripts of paid speeches that he said must have been "Shakespearean prose. " Thinking ahead to next week's Pennsylvania primary, Sanders spoke even as New Yorkers still were voting in that state's primary, where polls closed at 9 p.m. Hillary Clinton trounced Sanders there - but when he took the stage in Recreation Hall just after 7, he noted that it was too soon to know the night's victor.

The Tartans were down by three entering the fourth quarter and Lewis asked the same question.

NEW ORLEANS - Brett Brown was a little nervous. In the three NBA games played on Thursday, the 76ers coach saw teams that were rusty after the all-star break. "We've got to get going like everyone else in the NBA," he said before Friday's game against New Orleans Pelicans. "But the games I have seen so far around the league confirm that it does take a little bit to find a rhythm again. " We learned that it took Brown's team longer to find its groove than the Pelicans. The Sixers nearly battled back a from a 22-point first-half deficit before falling, 121-114, at the Smoothie King Center.

Vaughn Covington is an extremely intelligent basketball player with a deft shooting stroke. The slender point guard for Neumann-Goretti also knows his limitations. In Saints' 74-50 win at La Salle on Monday night, the 5-foot-11, 160-pound senior did his damage from the perimeter. "That definitely was a big focal point coming into high school," Covington said. "I had to develop a good jump shot because I knew I wasn't going to be over 6-foot-1, and I'm skinny already so I wasn't going to be able to finish at the rim against bigger guys.

After a 77-56 Public League victory against host Northeast, perhaps the Boys' Latin team bus should get stuck in traffic more often. On Thursday afternoon, the team left its West Philadelphia campus at about 1:30 p.m. for the scheduled 3:15 p.m. Division B contest. The Warriors didn't enter the gym, however, until about 3:30. Dressed and ready, the Warriors exploded for 28 first-quarter points after a brief warm-up. "We just talked about staying focused and don't let this bus trip throw you off," said senior Cameron Gardner-Nicholson.
