Win No. 300 for Chatham's Gaba

DOVER _ When Joe Gaba took over as girls basketball coach 15 years ago, Chatham was known as a soccer and lacrosse town. Gaining respect for the program wasn't going to be easy for Gaba, the Cougars' fourth coach in four years. 

Brown, Swerzenski star for Jefferson

WANTAGE _ Lauren Ferguson was cleared and ready to go, if necessary, on Friday night when Jefferson traveled to High Point. For three and a half weeks, Ferguson, the Falcons' senior point guard had been sidelined with a grade 2 ankle sprain. Her psyche, of course, pained her more than her injury.

Fageyinbo enjoying coaching

It's been almost eight years since Eni Fageyinbo, her sister, Bimpe, and their Parsippany Hills teammates claimed conference and sectional titles. Those championships already seem distant. That's why the Fageyinbos, now coaching at their alma mater, are determined to get the Vikings back into top form.

Johnson reaches 1,000 points

MORRISTOWN _ Tatiana Johnson's Morristown-Beard teammates wanted her to have the ball. That's not unusual because Johnson is a reliable dominant force inside but, on Saturday, the Crimson were a bit more focused on finding her, anxious to put her over the top and into the record books.

Fast start boosts Chatham

CHATHAM _ For Chatham, it wasn't all about payback. The Cougars didn't want to place too much emphasis on last year's two-point setback to Morris Catholic in the Morris County Tournament final.

Pope John excels when passing

SPARTA _ When Pope John is on offense, the ball goes around and around, making contact with several pairs of hands before slipping through the net. That's been the goal all along but, for a few games, the Lions got away from their plan.

Butler snaps three-game losing streak

DOVER _ Although Filomena Martini isn't a big scorer for Butler, she feels extra responsible for the team's offensive woes. As a captain and the Bulldogs' point guard, Martini can't help but dwell on what goes wrong and try to come up with solutions.

High Point's charity game a success

WANTAGE _ The altruism associated with the Pretty in Pink Classic appeals to senior Brianne Woop and her High Point basketball teammates. It's easy to understand why Woop and the Wildcats are so fond of the event, which was held Saturday, Jan. 7 when High Point played host to Kittatinny.
