Sarah Curran scored her 1,000th career point in the fourth quarter but fouled out before Archbishop Carroll stormed back to top visiting Archbishop Ryan, 51-43, Wednesday night in a Catholic League girls' basketball game. The senior forward finished with 16 points and reached the milestone on a jumper from the top of the key. With Curran sidelined late in the fourth, Lexi Stover scored all six of her points, and Kristie Costantino sank 5 of 6 free throws to lead the Patriots to the win. Also in the Catholic League: Shanice Johnson grabbed six rebounds and dished out three assists to help host Cardinal O'Hara roll over Conwell-Egan, 72-43.

The Archbishop Carroll girls' basketball team is well aware of how young it is. After all, having three sophomores in the starting lineup is hard to ignore. But instead of viewing their inexperience as a negative, the Patriots are looking to turn it around. That was the message from their coaching staff Saturday afternoon, after the Patriots lost their season-opening game to Christ the King (N.Y.), 54-39. "I didn't expect it to be as frustrating," Sarah Curran said of the opener in the Blue Chip Tip-Off Classic at Carroll.

Mia Farmer isn't one to show a lot of emotion on the basketball court. Calm and quietly intense, the junior guard for Cardinal O'Hara doesn't lose her cool or break into a wide smile as she runs up and down the floor. Instead, she makes a statement with the way she conducts herself and plays the game. On Wednesday night, with her team up by 20 points against Catholic League rival Archbishop Carroll en route to a 60-34 victory, Farmer threw both hands high above her head as a teammate sank a shot from the perimeter.

It's the first round of the state girls' basketball tournament, and the defending champions are your opponent. You're still reeling from a devastating loss in the semifinals of the district tournament. And to make matters worse, despite earning third place in District 1, you aren't getting the respect that you think you deserve. Then the defending state champs hit four three-pointers to start the first quarter. It would have been easy for Upper Dublin to quit Friday night against Archbishop Carroll.

Emily McPeak's first three-pointer got her team within a basket. Her second provided a one-point lead. By the time she hit her third straight three-pointer in a span of two minutes, McPeak was not looking back, and neither was the rest of the Bonner-Prendergast girls' basketball team. "It's not my role," McPeak said of providing the spark on offense. "I don't know what happened in there. I just got the hot hand. " The senior guard scored a team-high 15 points, including three game-changing three-pointers in the fourth quarter, and the Pandas beat Archbishop Carroll, 54-50, Friday in the teams' regular-season finale.

As a point guard, Mackenzie Rule is used to handling the basketball. So when the Cardinal O'Hara girls' team was playing possession in the waning seconds of its Catholic League semifinal Thursday night against Archbishop Carroll at Philadelphia University, the ball found its way to Rule. It definitely meant something to Rule, her teammates, and the dozens of fans wearing purple in support of the senior. Rule said she felt as if her teammates "wanted" her to be the last one holding the ball.

PRESEASON GIRLS' BASKETBALL Records are from last season. 1. Archbishop Carroll (29-2). Megan Creighton and Rachel Pearson are at Drexel now, but the Patriots still have senior forward Sarah Curran and point guard Kristie Constantino to lead their balanced attack. If the Patriots get good guard play from their underclassmen in particular, look for the defending champions to be a force again in the Class AAAA state tournament. 2. Spring-Ford (30-3). The District 1 Class AAAA-champion Rams had a tough end to the season last year, falling to Carroll in the semifinals of the state tournament, but they return nine players from that squad.

The last time the Archbishop Carroll and Cardinal O'Hara girls' basketball teams faced off, it didn't go at all the way the Patriots had hoped. The games between the fierce Catholic League rivals, two of the premier programs in the area, always have an air of excitement. But on Jan. 9, the Lions rolled over the Patriots in resounding fashion, 60-34. On Thursday, the teams will meet again when the fourth-seeded Patriots challenge top-seeded O'Hara (17-5) in the Catholic League semifinals at Philadelphia University.
