Coach Dave Hoch thought that if his Germantown Academy team could outrebound Malvern Prep's Friars, hold their best player to a reasonable number of points and get its own best player some good shots, it had a chance to win. The Patriots did all three, but the Friars won Tuesday's Inter-Academic League game anyway, 36-31. "I don't know what to say," Hoch said after the game at GA. "We were within 1 point (32-31) with 1 minute, 15 seconds to play, and we were forced to foul their best player.

Collingswood yesterday used a diamond-and-one defense designed to contain Haddonfield's two Division I players, Brian Zoubek and Blake Wilson. The strategy backfired, however, as Haddonfield's less-heralded starters sparked an easy 68-52 Colonial Conference boys' basketball victory. "I thought we did a good job neutralizing Zoubek and Wilson," Collingswood coach Joe McLoughlin said, "but their other guys stepped up. " They especially stepped up during a 15-0 run that gave Haddonfield a 19-4 lead and set the tone before a sellout crowd at Collingswood.

FORT HOOD, Texas - A uniformed Army psychiatrist had no justification for gunning down U.S. troops and won't be allowed to tell jurors that he was protecting Taliban leaders in Afghanistan, a military judge ruled Friday, appearing to clear the way for the Fort Hood murder trial to begin. Maj. Nidal Hasan's "defense of others" strategy fails as a matter of law, Col. Tara Osborn said during a 45-minute hearing. That strategy must show that a killing was necessary to prevent the immediate harm or death of others.

The Bryn Mawr enhancement strategy will include proposals for clustering businesses, marketing Bryn Mawr, managing traffic and improving pedestrian access.

Pittsburgh Steelers' president Dan Rooney had some harsh words for Chuck Noll's coaching strategy and sideline communication in an interview published in yesterday's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Rooney said he disagreed with some of Noll's play strategy in Sunday's loss to Cleveland and labeled some plays "stupid. " The Steelers lost the game, 27-7, which dropped their record to 2-10. "At the end of the season, we have to evaluate everything we're doing," Rooney said. GIANTS Phil Simms did not suffer a serious shoulder injury against the Eagles and the New York Giants quarterback probably will play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, coach Bill Parcells said.

WITH NEITHER the fanfare, flash nor controversy of Mayor Street's Neighborhood Transformation Initiative, City Councilman Wilson Goode has been quietly working on a strategy to revitalize struggling communities. We don't know yet what results will come out of NTI, but we're willing to bet Goode's efforts will have some lasting effects on Philadelphia. Goode's thesis is simple, if unexciting, in its obviousness: People in neighborhoods need better access to money and credit if we expect communities to flourish.

As New Jersey moves to take over the troubled city of Camden, the debate about responsibility and strategy flows back and forth between Trenton and Camden, Democrats and Republicans, executive and legislative branches. The state has little choice but to act. But which of two choices will be made? Continue business as usual: Drip an unending stream of ineffective subsidy, ensuring that the state can never extract itself from the morass that is Camden? Or make a complicated one-time investment loaded with sticks and carrots that connects Camden to the regional economy and provides a real exit strategy?

Owner George Steinbrenner summoned his top executives to Tampa, Fla., for meetings yesterday, less than a week after his New York Yankees became the first major-league team to waste a lead of three games to none in a postseason series. Five vice presidents met among themselves during the afternoon at the team's spring-training complex, then were scheduled to attend a night meeting with Steinbrenner, team president Randy Levine, and general manager Brian Cashman. New York is expected to pursue outfielder Carlos Beltran after he becomes a free agent and to resume talks with Arizona on acquiring lefthander Randy Johnson.

By Kyle Isakower The Paris climate agreement was signed less than a month ago, yet the United States is already one-third of the way to achieving the emissions reductions we committed to. We pledged to cut greenhouse-gas emissions 26 to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025, and emissions are down 9 percent compared with 2005 levels. How did we do it? Largely through greater use of clean-burning natural gas. The U.S. Energy Information Administration reports that energy-related carbon dioxide emissions dropped 12 percent below 2005 levels last year, "mostly because of ... increased use of natural gas for electricity generation.

One of the things that has always baffled me about Philadelphia is why visitors appear to like the city more than its residents do. I think that's changing, though if you look at the comments that follow my colleague Jacob Adelman's posts on new construction, there are recidivists among the enthusiasts. In mid-April, the city welcomed 3,000 members of the Urban Land Institute for its three-day spring meeting. The first day was filled with tours of projects large and small. The impressions expressed the next day by the tourists were positive.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I have a longtime friend who's engaged to a glass bowl of epic proportions. She's 51, never married, and I suspect she feels he's her "last chance," so she hangs in there, despite the fact that he doesn't support her emotionally or financially. I know it's impossible and not my place to try to talk her out of marrying him, as I've tried asking questions ("It's nice you try so hard to make him happy, how about your hopes and dreams?"

Parkway Corp. has carved its development niche amassing Center City property, banking it as paid parking, then building it up when the time is right. But it's trying something new at the former car-rental lot it owns at 20th and Arch Streets, which it is now looking to sell as undeveloped land. "It is a little bit of a different thing from our strategy," Parkway president Robert Zuritsky said of its move to market the former Avis Rent a Car System L.L.C. lot it acquired just over a year ago. "We're just exploring to see what the market is. " The shift comes amid concerns that Center City's rising real estate values may be losing some momentum.

Ohio and Florida have spoken. Currents political analysts T.J. Rooney and Alan Novak look at the next steps in the campaign. ***** Rooney: What happens when Donald Trump gets to the convention remains to be seen. He may not have enough votes to secure the nomination on the first ballot, but the only thing that is certain is that in the political world of unpredictable people, places, and things, Trump ranks first in every category. Novak: What's next? Two things - Trump starts to show us whether he can be presidential and he starts to do things that the winner or presumptive winner of a primary does - and that's reach out. Trump will point out that he is performing well in open primaries - where Republicans, Democrats, and Independents can vote for any candidate.

TORONTO - The NBA may make changes to prevent the increasingly more practiced, and increasingly loathed, hack-a-Shaq tactic. Hack-a-Shaq is the strategy of fouling a poor free-throw shooter away from the basketball in an effort to limit an opponent's scoring. The tactic is best known for being implemented against, and named for, former center Shaquille O'Neal. "It's an issue that we have been studying for some time now," NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Saturday night at his all-star weekend news conference.

It's a rare play that can entertain you and outrage you simultaneously, but that's just what Exit Strategy does. Philadelphia Theatre Company's fierce and funny East Coast premiere of Ike Holter's terrific play, an indictment of the collapse of the Chicago school system, is as relevant here as it is there: urban children - and their teachers - have been betrayed. Scene one is a meeting in the young, timid principal's office. Ricky (Ryan Spahn) is trying to warn tough-minded, tough-talking Pam (Deirdre Madigan)

IT IS NOT so much that the Eagles learned something from Sunday's NFL championship games. They were another affirmation of what the Eagles already knew. The absolute necessity of having a franchise-level quarterback is no secret. It is the most important individual position in any team sport. A legendary quarterback like Tom Brady can establish a dynasty. If an all-world talent like Cam Newton puts it all together, a mediocre team like the Carolina Panthers can register the best regular-season record in the league.

Here's the message President Obama was promoting on foreign policy in his last State of the Union speech Tuesday: "Don't worry, things are better than you think. " The rhetoric about our enemies getting stronger and America weaker is "political hot air. " The United States "is [still] the most powerful nation on Earth. " His administration is rooting out and destroying ISIS. And, even as we focus on destroying ISIS, we should avoid "over-the-top claims that this is World War III," which will "just play into their hands.
