Forget the latest fads in shoes, clothing and music -- there's another red-hot trend high school basketball players are jumping on: changing schools. Player movement may have reached an all-time high this boys season. At least 14 local players transferred to other schools. Some sought greater exposure. Others were motivated because of disciplinary or personal reasons, and some might have changed venues for academics. Douglass and Towson Catholic lost three players apiece, but the former picked up three transfers.

Three starters, including last season's All-Metro Player of the Year, graduated. The two other starters transferred. But the beat goes on for the Douglass High School boys basketball team. The West Baltimore school is again atop the area's rankings, riding a streak of 46 consecutive victories. With a new starting lineup, the defending Class 3A state champion is getting the same results. "Going into the season, we knew that we were one of the best teams in the city," said Douglass coach Rodney Coffield, whose Ducks are 18-0.

PHILADELPHIA - In the 1950s, when the bells of the historic First African Baptist Church rang 96 feet above this corner in South Philadelphia, the neighborhood was filled with prosperous African-Americans, and the church itself, 2,000 members strong, would crowd to overflowing on Sundays. Mabel R. Taylor, 96, is the oldest of the 100 or so faithful who remain. She remembers well the joy of watching the sun glint through the many stained-glass windows, and she recalls the glory of the chimes.
