The Lenape boys' basketball team has thrived this season in close, low-scoring games. Tuesday's big matchup with backyard rival Shawnee proved to be no different. Sawyer Hand sank a three-pointer from the wing with three seconds left to give host Lenape a 40-38 win over Shawnee in an Olympic Conference interdivision game. Lenape, The Inquirer's fifth-ranked team in South Jersey, rallied after being down by 11-3 in the first quarter behind a balanced attack. Tabu Gaither scored a team-high 11 points and was the only Lenape player to reach double digits.

For a team that is making its first-ever appearance in the South Jersey Boys' Soccer Coaches Tournament, Camden Catholic sure wants to prolong its stay. While some teams look at the coaches tournament as a secondary event behind the state tournament, Camden Catholic views it on equal footing - and its enthusiasm is obvious. The Irish scored two goals in the first four minutes and continued their record-setting season with yesterday's 6-0 shutout of Delran in a coaches tournament semifinal at Sterling.

The Beach Ball Classic, considered high school's answer to March Madness, will have an all Philadelphia-area final tonight.

When Tim Gushue first sat down with his assistants to discuss the boys' track and field season, the longtime Shawnee coach wasn't optimistic. "The outlook back in February was pretty bleak," Gushue said. "So I'm really pleased with the outcome. " That outcome, at least for the regular season, was finalized Monday when the Renegades clinched a share of their second division title. Going into the final day of dual-meet competition, Shawnee was tied with Eastern and Lenape atop the Olympic Conference American Division.

The last time Shawnee and Rancocas Valley met in boys' basketball, they produced one of the most memorable games in recent South Jersey playoff history. Rancocas Valley beat the Renegades, 74-72, in double overtime for last year's South Jersey Group 4 championship. The two will renew their rivalry at 1 p.m. tomorrow in a nonconference game at Shawnee. Last year, Shawnee lost just twice all season, and both losses were to Rancocas Valley. Beating the Red Devils will be no easier this year.

Whether anybody saw it coming a year ago, everybody associated with the Shawnee boys' basketball program now admits it wasn't a pretty sight. One of the most successful programs in South Jersey went into a one-year free-fall, done in largely by inexperience and injury. The Renegades went 8-18 and didn't qualify for the South Jersey Group 4 playoffs, which for so long had seemed like a rite of passage. Under coach Joe Kessler, the Renegades have earned one Tournament of Champions title, five state championships, and 10 South Jersey crowns.

We've just witnessed another recruiting season, which always includes plenty of hyperbole about the four- and five-star recruits that dot the football landscape. It's the same type of hype that we see in basketball, and really, in any other sport. There is no doubt that many five-star recruits live up to their rating. But one thing that gets forgotten is that some recruits that rated lower turn out to be good players. High school athletes peak at different times and many don't hit their stride until college, or even after.

Jennifer Byrne came up big in overtime, going 5 for 5 from the free-throw line in a 53-47 Shawnee victory over Garnet Valley in the Blue Chip Super Showcase, hosted by Spring-Ford.

Byrne's free throws helped make the difference in the extra period, however, as Shawnee was sent to the foul line 15 times, outscoring the Jaguars by six, with 11 points coming from free throws.

Danny Buckwalter takes pride in being a dependable role player for the Cherry Hill West boys' basketball team. But his role is changing. Buckwalter still is a complementary player to star senior swingman Can Oztamur on a rapidly improving team with a talented senior guard in Elijah Bey. But the Lions are 9-1, undefeated in their division, and looking for all the world like a squad that could beat any team in South Jersey in large part because...

It didn't seem to matter who took the shot for Shawnee. And that was the point. A host of teammates helped build a lead early in the game when the team's star player got into foul trouble. And when Timber Creek made a late push, every player on the Shawnee girls' basketball team responded as the Renegades, ranked No. 2 in South Jersey by the Inquirer, walked away a 52-39 winner at home over the fifth-ranked Chargers on Tuesday night. "We trust each other. These are the situations we work on in practice, and I knew we could pull this win out," said senior point guard Taylor Ryan.

When Camden Catholic boys' basketball coach Matt Crawford saw that his team was ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by The Inquirer last week, he knew what would come next. "We are going to experience everybody's best shot," he said. Yet the Irish's shot is not too bad, either, as they proved Friday with a 55-46 win over visiting Shawnee in the opening interdivisional game for both Olympic Conference teams. Crawford was also proven correct in earning the opposition's best shot. The final score was deceiving.

Nikola Williams is nothing if not fearless. Thirteen seconds into the third quarter, with her team trailing, the scrappy senior forward was airborne. She crashed into a 6-foot-3 center who had been a dominant force all game. And, somehow, she connected on a reverse layup before drawing a foul and falling hard to the floor. The message was clear. "It comes down to that no-fear attitude that Shawnee brings," Williams said. "I've gone up against bigger girls my whole life. It doesn't mean anything.
