The parade that started at the Poland Springs Arena continued in Mount Holly. After beating Paterson Kennedy, 67-52, Sunday for the Group 4 state championship, loud, blaring fire trucks escorted the Rancocas Valley girls' basketball team through the streets of its hometown. "That was amazing," said senior guard Lauren Gaskill. "Just to be recognized like that, it was an honor. It's just been so great that we've had so many people in the community following us all year and supporting us. " For Gaskill, Tuesday's Tournament of Champions matchup with No. 4 seed and Burlington County Liberty Division rival Trenton Catholic (23-5)

Villanova has been in with Malachi Richardson since the beginning, Team Final AAU coach Rob Brown said Thursday afternoon. "But at the end of the day he can only make one team happy," Brown said as Richardson prepares to announce his college commitment at 2:30 p.m. Friday at Trenton Catholic. The 6-foot-6 junior shooting guard is New Jersey's top player and is rated as a five-star recruit by both ESPN and Rivals. He will make an oral commitment, choosing from among the Wildcats, Syracuse, Indiana, Rutgers, Arizona, and Connecticut.

Erin Sveinbjornsson's long goal early in the first half proved to be all Palmyra needed Tuesday afternoon, as the Panthers held on to edge visiting Trenton Catholic, 1-0, in a Burlington County League girls' soccer game. The sophomore defender's goal was unassisted in the 10th minute as she dribbled by herself before targeting the shot from 20 yards. Sarah Bearint had four saves to post the shutout and was aided by a strong defense led by stopper Christina DeJoseph. In other Burlington County League action, Janea Dockins scored a pair of goals and Nefertiti Northern posted eight saves for the shutout as Cinnaminson blanked Willingboro, 6-0. Lauren Branch, Kristen Kozak, Amanda McHugh, and Rachel Waite added goals.

Moral victories don't count toward championships, especially when your season ends just a couple wins shy of qualifying for the title game. But the members of the Holy Cross girls' basketball team can take some solace from their performance on Friday, when the sixth-seeded Lancers fell, 58-45, at No. 3 seed Trenton Catholic in the NJSIAA South Jersey Non-Public B quarterfinals. Against the same opponent on Jan. 8, Holy Cross saw its early-season six-game winning streak brought to an unceremonious end, 78-27.

All season long, one team after another frustrated itself in attempting to defend the Camden Catholic boys' basketball team. Gadget defenses, slowing it down, speeding it up. Nothing seemed to work particularly well. In last night's Tournament of Champions final at the Izod Center, Trenton Catholic used an old but reliable element: grinding in-your-face man-to-man defense. Second-seeded Trenton Catholic contested every shot with great quickness and defensive anticipation to defeat Camden Catholic, 53-39, in earning its first TOC title.

Myles Powell scored the bulk of his 1,000 career points in a Medford Tech uniform. So it was more than a little ironic that Powell reached the historic milestone in a game against his old team. Powell, a 6-foot-3 guard, hit a deep three-pointer from the wing to reach the 1,000-point plateau in the first quarter of host Trenton Catholic's 74-56 victory over Medford Tech in a Burlington County League inter-division game Monday night. "He's still a Jaguar," said Medford Tech coach Nick Powell, who is no relation to the player.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - The tears were kept to a minimum, and rightly so. The Rancocas Valley girls' basketball team ended its season with a boatload of accomplishments, but as with four other state champions in New Jersey, the Red Devils will have an "L" in that final game. That doesn't detract one bit from what the Red Devils accomplished. It means only that the uniforms have to be handed in now. This dream season concluded with Tuesday's 57-38 loss to Trenton Catholic in the NJSIAA Tournament of Champions at Toms River North's Poland Springs Arena.

It's such an obvious comparison - and a bit cheesy - but it's one that is hard to resist. "People are always telling me, 'You know, you actually remind me of her,' " said Brittany Garner, the 6-foot-3 freshman sensation for the Camden Catholic girls' basketball team. Garner's name happens to be just two letters off from that of 6-8 basketball star Brittany Griner, the best women's post player in the world, known for her two-handed slam dunks. Last year, Garner visited New York to watch Griner's Phoenix Mercury take on the New York Liberty.

Cardinal O'Hara didn't score a point in the first quarter Saturday. The Lions trailed by 22 at the half. They had Springfield (Delco) right where they wanted it. Cardinal O'Hara came roaring back in the second half to defeat the Cougars, 54-53, at Haverford High's Coaches vs. Cancer Play Day. Liutauras Repsys, a 6-foot-10 junior center, made the second of two free throws with 2.6 seconds left to give the Lions their only lead.

John Mullin stood near the Bensalem bench on Saturday afternoon and placed his hands on his head. It was all the boys' basketball coach said he could do. The Owls team manager, Kevin Grow - an 18-year-old student who has Down syndrome - was knocking down three-pointer after three-pointer as Bensalem finished off Neshaminy, 64-40, in a Suburban One National game. Mullin said "it felt like a movie. " Grow, in his fourth-year as manager, played his first game a night earlier, hitting a foul shot before sinking a fastbreak layup.

Before Dominique Ward was "the girl who can dunk," she was the girl who played football. She was a wide receiver, a quarterback, and a running back for Trenton's Pop Warner team. And, yes, she was good. "The boys used to get so mad when I would score," Ward said. "Everyone would be like, 'How is she doing this?' " Ward's athleticism is inherently flashy - and so is her style. Last basketball season, she wore neon shoes. This year, she wears a different-colored sneaker on each foot.

Timber Creek's Brittany Martin was nearly unstoppable Tuesday night, and fouling the junior guard to slow her was not an option. Martin's 23 points led all players and powered the visiting Chargers to a 44-39 win over Holy Cross in the South Jersey Invitational girls' basketball tournament. With her team trailing by a point after one quarter, Martin chipped in six points in the second and Timber Creek never looked back. Seven other Chargers scored, but none finished with more than four points.

Atchison's 50-point performance propelled Burlington City to a 70-25 victory at Camden in nonleague girls' basketball Saturday. After the game, Atchison's Twitter account blew up with friends and family congratulating her on her performance.

The first time Kathy Hunter saw Tyler Raysor walking the halls of Haddon Heights, she felt it was like an illusion. "I saw her waving at me," said Hunter, the school's girls' basketball coach. "And somebody said, 'That's Tyler.' So I went over to talk to her, and she told me she was transferring to Haddon Heights. " Hunter paused. "Seriously," she said. "I was jumping up and down with joy. " The excitement wasn't just over Raysor's athleticism - polished enough to earn her a Division I scholarship to Rhode Island - or that at 6-foot-2 she is one of the state's tallest players.
