With each unanswered point, a nightmare that haunted the Willingboro boys for the last year became a slow tortuous reality. After losing last year's South Jersey Group 2 championship to Camden because of a letdown in the second half, this season's team - led by four senior starters - vowed never to let it happen again. The top-seeded Chimeras built a lead as large as 21 points in the first half of last night's Central Jersey Group 2 championship. But third-seeded Shabazz, ice-cold in the first half, came out firing in the third quarter.

Dominique Ward was already thinking about Shabazz. "Have you ever been involved in a game this wild?" Ward was asked after hitting the game-winning shot - a four-foot jumper with 12 seconds left - in Rancocas Valley's 59-58 win over Red Bank Catholic in Thursday's girls' basketball Tournament of Champions semifinals. "The last time I was in a game like this," said Ward, a 5-foot-10 forward, "was actually when I hit a buzzer-beater and we beat Shabazz in the preseason. It's a feeling that you really can't explain.

It's only appropriate that a team that sucks the life out of opponents defensively maintained its Tournament of Champions basketball dominance with a defensive supremacy that lasted nearly a half a quarter. Top-seeded St. Anthony is once again in its accustomed position as champion of the Tournament of Champions after yesterday's 48-47 win over No.2 Shabazz at the Continental Airlines Arena. It was the seventh TOC title for St. Anthony (27-3) since the tournament's inception in 1989.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - With 1 minute, 38 seconds left in the game, one of the finest careers in the history of Willingboro girls' basketball was over. Micahya Owens walked off the court after committing her fifth foul. She received a hug from coach Marchelle Coleman. And then she sat for the final time, ending her senior season with 1,941 career points. It was the end of an era, the last time a group of seniors, most starters since they were freshmen, will play on the same floor.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - Haddon Township's starting five of Katie Burns, Alayxiah Carr, Sarah Getzinger, Morgan Lenahan, and Bella Preziosi left the Group 1 championship to a standing ovation in the final minute. The Hawks fans filled most of their half of the 3,208-seat Pine Belt Arena, with the student section stretched back more than 10 rows. They covered the blue bleacher-style seats with the school's red, and they sent off their team with one last cheer Sunday as the season came to an end. After the postgame ceremonies ended, Haddon Township coach Tom Mulligan made sure his girls came together for a few last team photos before they left the court.

Haddonfield and Atlantic City, the South Jersey boys' basketball teams that won NJSIAA state titles last weekend, will both face Newark opponents tonight in Tournament of Champions quarterfinals at Toms River North High's Ritacco Center. Haddonfield, No. 1 in The Inquirer's South Jersey ratings and the Group 2 state champion, is expected to have one of its toughest challenges of the season when it meets Group 3 champion Shabazz at 8 p.m. Shabazz (24-6) is seeded fourth, while Haddonfield (28-1)

There will be no Tournament of Champions final for the Shawnee boys' basketball team. The third-seeded Renegades, in search of their first trip to the tournament's final since 1996, lost a heartbreaker last night in the semifinals to second seed Shabazz, 48-36, at Rutgers. Shawnee (27-3) kept the game close for three quarters, but Shabazz took control in the fourth period by outscoring the Renegades, 16-6, to advance to the championship game on Saturday at the Continental Airlines Arena.

Camden High couldn't overcome Shabazz's defensive intensity - or the illness of star senior Kevin Payton - as it dropped a 76-58 decision in yesterday's NJSIAA Group 3 state boys' basketball final at Rutgers. The ailing Payton was held to eight points - about 14 below his average - and looked lethargic as Shabazz's guards continually drove past him. Afterward, he said he had been stricken by the flu two days earlier and couldn't shake the effects. "I just tried to push through it," said Payton, a 6-foot-5 swingman who has signed with Minnesota.

Cherokee has ensured that a South Jersey team is guaranteed a berth in the Tournament of Champions boys' basketball final. Point guard Willis Nicholson was chiefly responsible for this situation. With Nicholson scoring 25 points, fourth-seeded Cherokee beat No. 5 Shabazz, 53-52, in last night's TOC quarterfinal at the Ritacco Center. The Chiefs (24-6) will now face top-seeded Camden Catholic in tomorrow's 8 p.m. semifinal at Rutgers. Besides the fact that the winner of that game advances to Tuesday's TOC final at the Izod Center, it should also settle matters for South Jersey supremacy.

In order for Cherokee's boys' basketball team to earn a rematch with Camden Catholic, the Chiefs will have to clear a major obstacle: They have to get by Shabazz during tonight's Tournament of Champions quarterfinal at Toms River North. Cherokee (23-6), the No. 4 seed, will meet No. 5 Shabazz (25-4) at 6 p.m. at Toms River North. The winner will face top-seeded Camden Catholic in Friday's 8 p.m. semifinal at Rutgers. Camden Catholic (28-1) is ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, and Cherokee is No. 2. In the regular season, Cherokee handed the Irish their only loss, a 73-65 double-overtime defeat.

Prominent defense attorney Tariq El-Shabazz, who has represented some of the city's most notorious criminals, will join the District Attorney's Office next month as one of Seth Williams' top lieutenants, Williams announced Thursday. El-Shabazz will be named deputy in charge of investigations in September and in December will become Williams' highest-ranking deputy when current first assistant George Mosee retires, Williams said at a news conference. Williams described El-Shabazz as "an unmatched advocate" for developing relationships between the public and law enforcement, and said he looked forward to adding El-Shabazz's perspective to his senior staff.

Joe McLoughlin loves to get together with his former players and reminisce about old times. "We just don't talk about the Shabazz game," McLoughlin said with a laugh. The former Collingswood High School boys' basketball coach knows that's not true. Everybody enjoys talking about the Shabazz game - players who were on the court, fans who were in the stands, media people who watched in disbelief. And especially the gregarious ex-coach who stood on the sidelines as perhaps the best team in his career lost in the state semifinals in the most incredible fashion.

Audiences interested in a crash course in Afro-futurism had a chance to see the genre's past and future in Philadelphia last week. Founding father George Clinton played the Ardmore Music Hall on Wednesday, while current torchbearers Shabazz Palaces landed at Union Transfer on Friday, performing for a small but rapt crowd. The duo plays a warped sci-fi mutation of hip-hop that incorporates equal doses of EDM and old-fashioned eccentricity and makes their music sound like nothing else on the current scene.

LAST WEEK, when the final NBA pick was sent in around midnight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and former Saint Joseph's forward Ronald Roberts Jr.'s name wasn't called, he didn't panic. He called his agents from Pensack Sports and decided the best opportunity for his career was to play in two summer leagues, one in Las Vegas with the Miami Heat and one with the Sixers, who practice less than a mile from the St. Joe's campus at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

The Shabazz girls' basketball players had packed their bags and put on their jackets. They were on the court chatting with family and friends. Gloucester Catholic parents were starting to look at their watches. Their team was still in the locker room long after its lopsided 60-43 loss to Shabazz Sunday night during the ESPN Girls Shootout at Holy Spirit. Thirty-two minutes against the reigning Tournament of Champions winner offered a coaching opportunity that Rams coach Lisa Gedaka couldn't pass up. "After the game, I told the girls I'd rather play Shabazz any day than a team we're going to beat by 50," Gedaka said.

TRENTON - For four quarters, Rancocas Valley was an arm's length from the best girls' basketball team in New Jersey. The Red Devils pushed, and Shabazz pushed back, winning Tuesday night's Tournament of Champions final, 66-54, at the Sun National Bank Center. RV was only the sixth South Jersey team to play in the game in the tournament's 24-year history. Only two have won it, and none since 2005. It's often said that these games are learning experiences for losing teams. The lesson in this one was clear to the Red Devils: They deserved to be in this game, and with two top starters and a strong bench returning next season, they have every reason to expect to be back.
