When watching Del-Val Charter basketball coach Jason Harrigan on the sideline, don't let the smooth style fool you. The 33-year-old Harrigan, now in his sixth year as the Warriors' coach, is typically calm, cool, and collected on the outside. But internally . . . "I've always been extra-competitive since I was little. Whether playing pickup in the school yard, racing [on foot], or playing tic-tac-toe, I want to beat you every time," said Harrigan, who will lead the Warriors into first-round action when the PIAA Class 3A state playoffs begin Friday night.

ORLANDO - Saturday's game between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder was all the talk before, during and after the 76ers' shootaround Sunday morning as they prepared to face the Orlando Magic. Steph Curry hit a 35-footer just before the buzzer to give Golden State a 121-118 overtime win and improve its record to an astounding 53-5. It was Curry's 12th three-pointer on a night in which he scored 46 points and left the basketball world and sports fans shaking their heads in disbelief.

Del-Val Charter did it again. After knocking off defending Public League champion Imhotep, the Warriors continued their giant-killing ways Friday night against defending state champion Neumann-Goretti. Del-Val, fresh off its Public League title win, held off the Saints, 81-79, in the District 12 Class 3A championship game at St. Joseph's University's Hagan Arena. "This is a big city shocker," said sophomore guard Antwuan Butler. "Nobody thought Del-Val would win a Pub championship and a city championship.

On a night when they could have celebrated a moral victory, the 76ers weren't a celebratory mood. They knew their miscues cost them a major upset. "We're competitors. So we think we should have won the game," Ish Smith said Saturday after a 108-105 setback to the Golden State Warriors at the Wells Fargo Center. "That's how everybody thinks. We didn't have enough time to win the game. " Nor did they make enough foul shots. Folks will talk about how Harrison Barnes made a 24-foot corner three-pointer with 0.2 seconds left to win the game.

The 76ers have an anybody-but rule. That is: They will let anybody but the opposing team's best player beat them. "We'll take our licks whatever else happens," coach Brett Brown said. "To have Steph Curry walk down this game is not how we are going to leave this gym. " So after he ran time off the clock, the Sixers double-teamed the reigning league MVP with Nerlens Noel and Ish Smith. Curry passed out of the double-team to Draymond Green in the lane. He, in turn, quickly found a wide-open Harrison Barnes in the corner.

Facing his locker stall, a white towel draped atop his head, Steph Curry muttered "Bad, bad, bad" to no one in particular Saturday night, the NBA's biggest star betraying his displeasure over a game that could have gotten away from the NBA's best team. The 76ers had shocked Curry and the Golden State Warriors with a stirring comeback from a 24-point deficit, tying the score with 22.3 seconds left only to have the Warriors use 22.1 seconds to run a perfect halfcourt sequence: Curry penetrating and passing to Draymond Green at the foul line, Green kicking the ball to Harrison Barnes in the corner for an open three-pointer, Barnes swishing it for a 108-105 Warriors victory.

CURIOUS AS to what coach Brett Brown's idea might be on how to slow down Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors when they visit the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, 76ers point guard Ish Smith approached his coach about the defensive plan. "I asked him if we were going to have a high pickup, pick up (Curry) at halfcourt," Smith said. "He said 'No, they get in at around 5 o'clock (Friday). You need to pick him up then. " What to do and how to do it against the defending world champions is a dilemma that has faced 46 Golden State opponents this season, and 42 times they have come out on the short end of what is usually a lopsided score.

STEPHEN CURRY may look angelic, but to the rest of the NBA, he is Satan in sneakers. He can score off the dribble, coming off a pick, in transition or thread a pass to a teammate like a snake flicks its tongue. On Saturday, he makes his annual visit to the Wells Fargo Center. So here's a closer look at Curry, who is on his way to a second consecutive MVP Award, a second consecutive NBA championship, his first scoring title and inevitable comparison's to some of the greats to ever play the game.

JASON RICHARDS was the sophomore starting point guard for his college team when he decided to ride along with an assistant coach to go and see a recruit play a high school game. It was a pretty mature move for Richards, as the player they were going to scout was also a point guard, with a pretty big reputation. There were two ways Richards could have looked at the recruit. One, he could have seen someone who was going to come in and threaten his job. Or he could have seen a talent that would have helped the team improve.

SEPTA General Manager Jeff Knueppel, who announced Monday that 75 percent of the blizzard-battered public-transit system was running again, said he was teased by a reporter earlier this winter after buying gigantic snow-fighting machines. The 28-year SEPTA veteran, who has battled the four biggest snowstorms in Philadelphia history, oversaw the purchase of a rail-riding, snow-throwing monster truck with a rotating arm that looks like something out of Mad Max: Fury Road . "It was the age-old situation where you buy a snowblower and there's a winter with no snow," Knueppel told the Daily News, laughing.
