Middle Township's Tom Feraco has won 491 games and three state titles, but even the best coaches are sometimes second-guessed. It was Feraco who was questioning himself after his strategy of running the clock down didn't pay off last night. Top-seeded Haddonfield beat No. 2 Middle Township, 41-40, at Washington Township for the South Jersey Group 2 boys' basketball championship. The Bulldogs (25-2) advanced to tomorrow's state Group 2 semifinal at Perth Amboy, where they will play New Brunswick, the Central Jersey champion.

Trying to end a three-game skid, Eastern boys' basketball coach Dave Allen decided on a new offensive strategy and lineup for last night's game against Overbrook. Both provided overwhelming results as the Vikings routed Overbrook, 69-40, in an interdivision Olympic Conference game between aspiring Group 4 playoff teams. Eastern (6-6) at least must split its remaining four games to qualify for a Group 4 berth, and Overbrook (7-7) is in the same predicament. Teams with .500-or-better records on Feb. 6 will earn spots.

Bucks County Congressman James C. Greenwood has been chosen to lead the long-range planning team for Republicans in the House of Representatives, officials said yesterday. Greenwood, a former state legislator from Erwinna, fills a post vacated last month by New York Rep. Bill Paxon, who resigned after a failed attempt to depose House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Now in his third term in the House, Greenwood was already a member of the six-person strategic planning team, which Gingrich established in January to create a Republican message and strategy for the 2000 election and for the future.

If you can't beat 'em . . . sign 'em. That seems to sum up how the Toronto Blue Jays do things these days. Two years ago, the Blue Jays couldn't beat Jack Morris in the playoffs. So they signed him as a free agent. Last October, the Blue Jays couldn't beat Dave Stewart in the playoffs. So this winter, they signed him, too. Down the stretch last year, the Blue Jays gave up 31 hits one day to a Milwaukee lineup that was jump-started by the fiery Paul Molitor. So they signed the fiery Paul Molitor.

IN A YEAR when we will elect a governor, it is worth asking: Does Pennsylvania have a comprehensive initiative to reduce gun violence in all of the state's major cities? Places like Chester, York, Reading and Allentown? Would Pennsylvania stand behind a strategy that has shown that violence can be dramatically reduced when community members and law enforcement join together to directly engage violent street groups and clearly communicate a message against violence? Focused Deterrence is a proven and comprehensive gun-violence reduction strategy developed by criminologist David Kennedy, of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and we believe that it should be a component in the state's overall public-safety policy.

MANCHESTER, N.H. - The idea seemed sudden, immediate, the way so many of Chip Kelly's do. Truth is, the running of the bulls, the heart-in-your-throat panic-fest held annually the second week of July in Pamplona, Spain, was something the new Eagles coach always wanted to do, but never had the time - or for most of his 23-year college coaching career, the cash. But last summer, as the well-compensated head coach of the University of Oregon, neither was a problem. Not for him. And, by association, not for the tight-knit group of high school teachers, coaches and restaurant owners who have provided the grounding to his high-voltage profile and career, who have vicariously lived his rapid and improbable ascent from a college assistant coach earning $62,000 in 2006, to a man who just signed a 5-year, $32.5 million deal to be the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.

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.

Watch it! The shambling, rambling wreck headed your way is going to ask you for money. What will you do? You can't escape them. Philadelphia's homeless - drunken, demented or just plain hungry - seem to be everywhere. There are an estimated 1,400 homeless people in the city, about a quarter of them mentally ill, and you can't walk far in some parts of town without having one of them ask you for help. Since you can't avoid them, some strategy must be decided on, and strategy is generally based on a point of view, an attitude.

What do you think would be the best strategy for Pennsylvania and other states to reduce the risk of voter fraud?
