  Rich "Yank" Yankowitz coached basketball at Murrell Dobbins Tech for 34 seasons, winning xxx games and one Public League championship. That crown was claimed in 1985 as the Mustangs easily beat Southern. Here is that story . . .

By Ted Silary

  Greg "Bo" Kimble might have looked a might odd bounding up and down the basketball court at Temple's McGonigle Hall in baseball spikes yesterday, even the hard-rubber variety.
  Eight years ago, though, you rarely would have found the budding folk hero from Murrell Dobbins Tech wearing anything else.
  Slamming. Sticking a "J." Going hard to the rack. That wasn't where it was at. Legging out a triple. Stealing a base. Overtaking a deep fly ball in the outfield. Now you're talking.
  "Around where I lived (East Falls' Abbottsford Homes) when I was little, everybody was into baseball," Kimble said. "That's all I ever dreamed about, being a professional baseball player. Who? Mike Schmidt. Pete Rose. It didn't matter. I thought about being all your average all-stars of the day.
  "But when I was 10, we moved to 26th and Clearfield. All I ever heard about was basketball, basketball. So, I forgot about baseball and started to concentrate on basketball. I'd go over to the playground and stay there from the time the lights went on until the time the lights went out."
  Yesterday, even after the florescents flicked off, illumination still was in abundance.
  That's how much Kimble lit up the place as Dobbins swooshed and bulled - at different times, the overflow crowd of 5,000 saw different methods - past Southern, 86-62, to win a first-ever Public League championship in one of the three major sports.
  Kimble's key numbers were 12-for-16 from the field, 27 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks, but the numbers alone don't begin to do his performance justice.
  It's a shame for Kimble that the words "flair" and "charisma" already are part of the dictionary. If they weren't, he could have used his play to invent them.
  At just about the same time Kimble gave up the small white ball for the large orange one, a fellow by the name of Lewis Lloyd wowed Public League audiences with the slickest moves this side of a con artist. Lloyd, of course, has gone from Overbrook to New Mexico Military to Drake to the Golden State Warriors to the Houston Rockets.
  And when Lloyd's name was mentioned to Kimble, his smile went from good to great.
  "I'm not ashamed to admit it. I copy him," Kimble said. "I used to watch him play in the Baker League classics. I'd watch how he'd finish his moves, with the one long step rather than two little ones. He was always killing them with that."
  Like any red-blooded, springy-legged basketball player with the ability to do so, Kimble loves to unfurl an occasional rim-wrecker. An observer can't help but believe, however, that he'd rather finish a move with a Lloyd-type long step and kiss a short banker off the glass.
  Of course, the fact that he hangs in the air for seemingly three or four seconds, as defenders whiz by and swat at nothingness, doesn't detract from the moment.
  "Before I came to Dobbins, I was all finesse, and I did a lot of showboat moves," Kimble said. "I even used to practice them. But then 'Yank' (coach Rich Yankowitz) changed my game to include more power and aggressiveness. Still, I kept the ability to do some of the things that people say they find hard to believe.
  "Yank always tells me, 'Take it up strong instead of trying to please the crowd.' All I can say about that is, I do whatever it takes to score."
  Throughout the playoffs, it took very little. Kimble shot 51-for-65 from the field (78.5 percent) in wins over Central, Overbrook, Jules Mastbaum Tech and Southern that came by 26, 23, 22 and 24 points, respectively.
  Perhaps Yankowitz, who's been heard to holler patience upward of 100 times a game, paid Kimble's ability to make a move and finish it off the ultimate compliment when he said, "Today, when I'd see Bo come downcourt on a break and I'd feel like yelling, 'Take it back out and run an offense' . . . well, I just didn't do it.

   "When I see Bo in the open court, I have confidence he's going to do the right thing. He's that good at it."
  As stellar as Kimble was, the 6-4 forward had only a sliver on 6-6 center Eric "Hank" Gathers when it came to getting a
rise out of the applause meter.
  Gathers also had 27, shooting 11-for-17 and 5-for-11. Fourteen rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocks were also part and
parcel of his workmanlike display of inside dominance.
  That the statistics for Kimble and Gathers would be so similar in the final game of their high school careers was
somewhat ironic. At many junctures, but more so during their sophomore and junior years, they drove Yankowitz crazy
with flare-ups that usually focused on who was - or more importantly, who wasn't - getting the basketball.
  "Both of us realized at the beginning of the season that one man can't do it alone," Gathers said. "We knew if we stayed
together and played as a team, not too many teams were capable of beating us. We talked a lot of times. I'd tell Bo, 'You
look for me and I'll look for you.' When you face junk defenses, like we did all year, you have to work together to be
  Temple, La Salle, Virginia Commonwealth, De Paul, Massachusetts, Southern California and St. Bonaventure are
among the schools recruiting Kimble and/or Gathers. Don't lick your chops just yet, but there's a chance they will go
as a tandem.
  "There's a great possibility," Gathers said. "Maybe we'll go to La Salle together. We'd have a great opportunity to play
right away."
  Kimble and Gathers, who sometimes have come off as arch enemies, spending their college years together? Who would
ever have thought?
  "Hey, we'd have our little conflicts here and there," Gathers said, laughing, "but down the stretch, we'd always stick
together. It would be nice if we played together in college. We both get results, but we get them in different ways. Bo's
got that natural talent. I have to work harder. We complement each other, though."
  Although there was little need for the keeping of play-by-play in this one, which featured a 38-21 halftime score, Southern
did draw within 65-56 with 5:30 left on a fastbreak basket by guard Irv Hutcherson.
  But in rapid succession we had: Doug Overton's basket on a pass from Kimble; a Southern turnover; Gathers's basket
on a pass from Overton; Derrick Gathers's steal; E. Gathers's rebound basket of his own miss; a Southern turnover;
imble's fastbreak basket on a pass from Overton; a miss by Hutcherson; E. Gathers's basket on a pass from Overton.
Just like that, the score was 75-56 and only 1:42 had elapsed. Southern's players had every right to look shell-shocked,
which they most definitely did.
   Undoubtedly, the Public League basketball fan in the street always will lament Ben Franklin's absence from yesterday's
final. And, with that in mind, it's difficult to correctly place the Mustangs among the city's better teams of the last
  But if we agree that West in 1977 and Overbrook in '79 are 1-2 or 2-1, Dobbins could check in as high as No. 3.
  More than anything else, these guys will be remembered for a killer instinct that intensified as the season progressed.
  The Mustangs (28-2) experienced only one true lapse, falling in overtime to Dunbar of Baltimore in a Pepsi Challenge
semifinal after leading, 46-30, with 2:40 left in the third quarter. Their other loss was to mighty De Matha, of Hyattsville,
  Remember, this was an extremely strong year for the Public League.
  "I can't believe I'm no longer going to be coaching Hank and Bo and Derrick and 'Heat' (lead guard Darrell Gates),"
Yankowitz said. "These three years seem like they've lasted my whole coaching career. It seems like they've been
my sons forever.
  "You know, that thought's just hitting me for the first time. It's something to think about . . . "
  With that, Yank's voice trailed off and he glanced down at the floor.
  Bo Kimble wasn't flowing past en route to a basket. Hank Gathers wasn't charging past, either.
  The worst thing about winning a championship is the realization that you're losing the players who most helped you
get it.
  TITLE TIDBITS: Lionel Simmons, a 6-4 junior, led Southern with 18 points and 11 rebounds . . . Dobbins joined the
league for basketball in the 1945-46 season . . . Greg Kimble: "When I go to the hole, I feel no one can stop me. You
have to feel that way." . . . With 2:59 left, a Coke bottle fired from Southern's stands whizzed past Dobbins's bench.
Luckily, no one was hurt. Unfortunately, the yo-yo who threw it wasn't arrested.

This story was written in 1998 after "Yank" and Dobbins halted Gratz' streak of
107 consecutive Public League regular season wins . . .

By Ted Silary
  After so many years and so much success, coach Bill Ellerbee almost never gets a pregame feeling that makes him
go hmmmm.
  He did yesterday.
  As the friendly confines at 22nd and Lehigh filled to capacity and the noise increased to automatic headache levels, the
basketball players from Murrell Dobbins Tech and visiting Simon Gratz executed their layup drills.
  Dobbins was shooting at the basket in front of Gratz's bench and every so often, a Mustang would stop and chat briefly
with Ellerbee.
  "Mostly when we go into the lions' dens, the guys on the other teams are too jacked up,'' Ellerbee said. "These guys
spoke to me, slapped me five . . . The thing was, they were calm.
  "Just looking at that, I thought, `We could be in trouble.' ''
  With a capital T.
  "The Streak"  is over. After earning 107 consecutive wins over eight full seasons and parts of two others, Gratz finally
lost a Public League regular season game.
  The final score was 54-46 and Dobbins had all kinds of help.
  There was point guard Terrence "Nip"  Cook, an ultraquick lefthander, who mixed 20 points and five assists and helped
make sure the 'Stangs were guilty of only six turnovers. And wing guard Amari Wynder, who had nine points, five
assists and two steals. And small forward Jon McLaurin, who added 11 points and brass along with a spectacular
alley-oop dunk.
  There were also rotating interior players Charles Pratt (eight points), Demetrius Harris (four steals), Andre Martin, Eric
Benson and Keith Stokes. What they did best was retain their focus throughout and never come close to dropping their
  The Bulldogs had not dropped a PL regular-season game since Jan. 19, 1989, when they fell at Frankford, 67-65. They
won six to finish '89, 13 in '90, 10 in '91, 11 apiece in '92, '93, '94 and '95, 15 in '96, 16 in '97 and three to start this season.
  Counting the regular season and all playoffs except title games, Gratz's PL streak was 134.
  When it was over, Dobbins fans in the lower stands exploded onto the court to hug their heroes. A few seconds behind
came those who scrambled down the steps from the balcony.
  The scene was exactly as one would wish it to be after a hard-fought game of high importance. As Gratz's players
walked slowly to the exit, no one taunted them.
  "My first thought was to go see the Gratz guys,'' Cook said. "I know some of them, and that was an incredible
accomplishment all those years. But so many fans were hugging me and slapping me, I couldn't get over there. When we
got downstairs, I went and shook all their hands.''
  The main portion of Dobbins's locker facility is one large room broken into sections by chain-link fencing. Once everyone
was present in the cubicle reserved for visiting teams, Ellerbee ordered the players to sit on two benches forming an L and
then talked for three minutes.
  He didn't holler, but he sternly delivered a message. He repeated it after walking outside.
  "They outhustled us and outexecuted us. They did everything better than we did,'' Ellerbee said. "I didn't think anybody
was quicker than we are, but it was like we were nailed to the floor.
  "This is a young ballclub. We've been trying to get them to do certain things. Maybe now we'll have their ear. Maybe
that can be the positive we take from this loss. Most of these guys haven't been part of our longstanding tradition. Before
this year, they just put on jerseys and watched. Maybe now these guys will come to understand what Gratz basketball is
all about.''
  Later, Ellerbee had effusive praise for referees Ron Arthur and Mike Chesney.
  "They were great,'' he said. "This is a tough gym. There was no junk." 
  Though both teams entered with 9-1 overall records, Dobbins had faced mostly inferior competition. That fact didn't
faze Cook, McLaurin or coach Rich Yankowitz.
  "People in school were mostly doubting our chances,'' Cook said. "They kept asking, `You gonna win? ' I kept saying,
`Yeah. ' I was saying it with confidence.''  
  Said McLaurin: "When we play as a team, we can beat anybody. We've been playing like this all season. We just didn't
get recognition.''
  Said Yankowitz: "Every coach, in a situation like this, has an inner confidence that his team can do it. To beat Gratz,
you have to play near-perfect basketball. Every time we needed a big bucket or rebound, we got it.''
  Out of a 3-2 matchup zone, Dobbins did a masterful job of preventing Gratz from getting open looks on jumpers
(three-pointers are not possible from the corners on the narrow court) and was only rarely burned inside. Gratz's chances
were hurt by deep foul trouble incurred by its only reliable inside force, junior Sharod Carroll. Carroll had 15 points, but
was limited to four minutes in the first half while Dobbins built a 24-19 lead.
  When Wynder nailed a three to open the second half, Dobbins's fans went crazy. The smell of blood was in the air.
  "My parents [Kevin, Beverly] were here,'' said Cook, a C-plus student, who is being eyed by Division II schools. ``I
kept looking up to the balcony, especially to my dad. He was giving me hand signals on what decisions to make.
  "This was a great feeling. Like nothing I ever felt before. I've been waiting for this day my whole high school career -
to come through with a nice game against a really good team.''
  With 5 minutes, 4 seconds remaining, the teams were tied at 36. Dobbins then scored six consecutive points as
second-chance baskets by Harris and Pratt sandwiched Wynder's left-wing jumper on a pass from McLaurin.
  At 1:37, Cook sped through everyone for a dipsy-doodle layup and gave Dobbins a 46-38 cushion. The noise that
accompanied that field goal was heard eight blocks east on Broad Street.
  "Down the end, I just kept looking at the clock and saying, `C'mon, move! ' '' Cook said.
  McLaurin did the same.
  "When that clock hit 0:00, I didn't believe it at first,'' he said. "I still don't believe it.''
  Soon, Yankowitz put everything into perspective.
  "Now,'' he said, "everybody and their grandmother will be trying to knock off us.''

This story was written in 2005, shortly before "Yank" retired . . .

By Ted Silary
  The winningest basketball coach in Public League history undoubtedly will lose it tomorrow. When it comes to emotions,
Rich Yankowitz is a wear-'em-on-the-sleeve kind of guy. So it will be difficult for him to walk out of Murrell Dobbins
Tech and end a 40-year career in teaching and coaching.
  "I'm not looking forward to it," he said. "I've talked to some retired guys and they all claim they're enjoying themselves.
When you walk away from something you love, I'm not sure how that's possible, but I'll get a chance to judge for myself."
  Yankowitz, also Dobbins' baseball coach, already had one bout with welling up. That came Friday at Penn's Murphy
Field when the Public League fell in the first round of the Carpenter Cup Classic.
  "Peeling off the uniform for the last time was pretty emotional," he said. "Just talking about leaving to some people, I
was having a tough time."
  Yankowitz, 62, a product of Overbrook and West Chester, went 486-269 in 34 seasons as the Mustangs' basketball
coach. He coached baseball for the last 10 seasons. Along the way, he had stints as the head man in cross country and an
assistant in track and soccer. He began teaching at Dobbins in September 1969 after spending the previous four school
years at Leeds Junior High.
  "We've pretty much had the same phys ed staff at Dobbins for over 25 years," Yankowitz said. "As summer ends and
fall begins, you feel good, because you're going to spend the next 9-plus months around people you like and respect.
I'll come back to visit, but it won't be the same."
  He laughed. "I don't like this retirement stuff," he said. "All it means is that you're closer to the place you don't want
to be, if you know what I mean."
  The personable, popular Yankowitz, known as "Yank" to everyone, was famous for the amount of time and effort he
poured into Dobbins' basketball program. Calling players to wake them up. Driving them to school. Even taking them
on errands.
  On game days, he would remain at Dobbins as late as 10 p.m. to phone newspapers, compile statistics, launder
niforms, plan ahead for practices, etc. Then he'd do more preparation at home. Often, he functioned on as little as
3 hours' sleep.
  "When you're doing something that's so enjoyable, you don't mind putting in time," he said.
  Yankowitz said he is retiring in part so he can spend more time with his married daughters and toddler grandchildren,
who live out of the area.
  "I haven't seen too much of them yet," he acknowledged.
  To stay busy, he will be a baseball assistant under Denny Weiner at Penn State-Abington and perhaps latch on
somewhere in basketball.
  "I thought about trying to stay on here in basketball," he said. "But to do the kids justice, I think you need to be full
time at the school.
  "Being with Denny will help me keep my feet in the fire. And I'll probably get a chance to coach against my son,
because he's going to Penn State-Altoona. That'd be nice."
  Yankowitz' son, Matt, an outfielder, just graduated from George Washington. He missed his entire senior season
with a leg injury.
  Yankowitz produced one hoops champion at Dobbins, in 1985. That squad is well remembered in city history
because the starting lineup included two future NBA players, Greg "Bo" Kimble and Doug Overton, and another
star, Eric "Hank" Gathers, who would have made the league had he not died in 1990 while playing for Loyola Marymount.
  Another big-time Mustang was Horace "Pappy" Owens (class of 1979), now an assistant at La Salle University.
  Twenty-four of Yank's teams made the playoffs; 17 and five made the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively.
His '84 squad lost in the final to Ben Franklin. His '98 team halted Simon Gratz's amazing streak of consecutive
PL wins, not counting playoffs, at 107.
  Yankowitz claimed the PL record for wins, at 457, on Jan. 23, 2003, in an 81-58 triumph over Thomas Edison.
Ken Hamilton had gone 456-184 in 28 seasons at Franklin, ending in 1999.
  Disheem "DaDa" Butler, one of the game's heroes, said of Yankowitz after that game: "I was so happy for him. He's
a great guy. In school. Out of school. On the court. Off the court. If you're looking for comfort, he'll give it to you.
If you're looking for somebody to back you up, you've got that, too."
