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.

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?

Producing master plans to combat blight and revive rundown neighborhoods has practically become a cottage industry in Philadelphia. But comebacks, when they happen, rarely turn out the way planners script them. So it is with Point Breeze, which begins south of Washington Avenue on the west side of Broad Street, and extends well past Snyder Avenue. Once a working-class area of stalwart brick rowhouses, dramatically punctuated by cathedral-size churches that seem worthy of Rome, Point Breeze began coming apart at the seams with the '80s crack epidemic.
