With March madness completed, basketball turns to all-star April By Frank Lawlor INQUIRER STAFF WRITER Only two local teams, the Downing-town girls and Pottstown boys, are still playing high school basketball, but that doesn't mean there aren't hoops aplenty to keep track of this month. One of the Philadelphia area's best senior classes in history is dispersing far and wide over the next few weeks to take their games up against the nation's best. Below is a list of games and dates to watch, followed by the top local games of the postseason, all-star category. McDonald's All American game, Memphis, Tenn., Sunday. All-everything 6-foot-11 senior Rasheed Wallace of Simon Gratz is inexplicably the only Philadelphia player on the East squad in the 16th edition of this, the nation's best-known all-star game. Channel 10 will televise the game live at 1 p.m. The Asics Roundball Classic, Pittsburgh, April 8. The Philly contingent includes Franklin Learning Center's 6-6 forward, Tyrone Weeks, who has signed with Massachusetts; German-town Academy guard Alvin Williams, a Villanova signee; 6-10 Roman Catholic forward Marc Jackson, who is headed for Virginia Commonwealth; and Gratz's 6-6 leading scorer, Ron-dell Turner, who is still considering his college options.

Horse Racing Blushing Julian to try two turns By Craig Donnelly INQUIRER STAFF WRITER Few horses in the history of Philadelphia Park have shown the brilliance of Blushing Julian so early in their careers. Tonight the muscular chestnut colt will try to carry his speed around two turns for the first time when he goes postward as the favorite in the $65,000 Garden State Stakes. Purchased by John Gambone's Valley Forge Stable last year as a 2-year-old for $175,000 at the Calder Sales, the son of Mt. Ljvermore (also the sire of champions House-buster and Eliza) now looks like a bargain after three starts. He showed great acceleration in his Jan. 3 debut and Entries Meadowlands Simulcast to Garden $tafe Park and Atlantic Citv Race Course. FIRST POST 7:30 P.M. lit-7,000.

He finished second that day to the highly regarded Chip's Dancer but was very likely the best horse. Leading but apparently bothered by watching a riderless runner in front of him, Blushing Julian managed to lose narrowly. In his third start at Philadelphia Park, 10 days ago, he quickly sped to the front under regular rider Tony Black and scored easily. He then worked out an additional eighth of a mile in preparation for tonight. His performance was powerful enough to make his connections consider the Kentucky Derby, now just four weeks away. "He still has to answer some questions," his 40-year-old trainer, Mike Arnone, said yesterday. "The expectedl off track, going long for the first time. We know we have a nice horse but we're realistic. He wouldn't just have to win, he'd have to win very impressively." Blushing Julian's main opponent in the Garden State, to be contested at 1 116 miles as the eighth race (approximately 10:30 p.m.), would be multiple stakes-winner Chip's Dancer. He is entered but is likely to remain home for a race in Maryland. That leaves Tri For The Gold, who devastated a field of sprinters in the Ilex Stakes at Philadelphia Park when wearing blinkers for the first time, as his most serious challenger. Cherry Hill Mile winner Silver Key also looks tough and Takin' Names and Fifty Cent Dollars merit respect. Premier Commander, Another Huey, Go Cuervo, What's It's Face, and Nomax complete the field. "Blushing Julian is an aggressive, well-balanced colt with a lot of desire," Arnone said. "We could see that right away when we watched him work before we bought him. Nothing bothers him and he's great to be around." Should Blushing Julian romp home tonight, his next start could be the Derby Trial at Churchill Downs on April 24. "Why not take a chance?" Arnone said. "Mr. Gambone spent $175,000 and deserves to have some fun and some dreams. We've never had a horse like this before and may never have one like him again. To win big you have to dream big." For Rugby player, a 1-year suspension ASSOCIATED PRESS SYDNEY, Australia Rugby league player Peter Davies was suspended yesterday for a year for breaking the jaw of a rival player in a weekend match. Davies hit Shayne Stead with his elbow after Stead had kicked the ball. Stead suffered a concussion, lost several teeth and needed 15 stitches in his mouth after the late tackle. Stead said yesterday he planned to take legal action against Davies, who was suspended for 10 months for a similar late tackle seven years ago.
