QUEENS, N.Y. - One by one, each basketball made its way out the front door of the West Philadelphia row home. The ball that was scuffed and marked from being pounded into the playground court - gone. The one that swished for his 1,000th high school point - gone. The ball that earned him the nickname, "Too Easy" - gone. More than just old basketballs, they were painful reminders of a young life that was stolen away. After the killing of his younger brother, Halim, Nurideen Lindsey couldn't look at a basketball - let alone touch one - anymore.

Alssene Saintilus is one of the most intriguing basketball players in South Jersey. He also is a lesson in the power of persistence. The 6-foot-6 senior forward for Williamstown can dunk in traffic, knock down three-pointers, block shots, and play defense on the perimeter. He's still scratching the surface of his potential, mainly because he's still learning about varsity competition. But it's not Saintilus' considerable athletic ability that's the secret to his sudden success.

Penn's basketball team received oral commitments from three players for the 2011-12 season, including a pair of international recruits. On Monday, the Quakers received a commitment from Miller Grove (Ga.) forward Henry Brooks, a source told Scout.com's Evan Daniels. Brooks, rated by ESPN as the nation's 74th best power forward, reportedly chose Penn over Minnesota, Tennessee and Missouri. Joining Brooks will be recruits Keelan Cairns of Ireland and Simeon Esprit of England, both of whom committed Sunday night after visiting Penn last week.

Zach Hanson caught Devin Brooks' air ball along the baseline and put it in the basket for the go-ahead points in the last minute, and host Creighton came back from an 18-point deficit to upset No. 18 Oklahoma, 65-63, on Wednesday night. The Bluejays (3-0) used a 24-4 run to get back in the game after a dismal first-half shooting performance. Austin Chatman hit two free throws to make it a four-point game with 24 seconds left, but Oklahoma still had a chance after Brooks missed three free throws in the last 14 seconds.

Stanford ended another long Huskies streak nearly four years after snapping the program's NCAA-record 90-game unbeaten run.

SAINT JOE'S PROSPECTUS It all comes down to: How well the new players and inexperienced returning players perform. The Hawks lost veteran players who knew how to play and, by the end, knew how to win. None of that happened overnight. It was a process, sometimes painful, exhilarating at the finish. The game has evolved to a point where, if you don't have three-point shooting, you are playing against basketball math. These Hawks definitely will be playing against that math. "We've had to change the way we play," coach Phil Martelli said.

LONG, LANKY, lefthanded and legit on the basketball court. That's a fair description of Constitution High senior forward Ahmad "J.R. " Gilbert. And after Wednesday's National Signing Day, you also can call him a George Mason signee. Interestingly, the 6-7, 190-pounder inked with the Patriots, in part, because head coach Paul Hewitt sold Gilbert on his similarities to a familiar southpaw. "When coach Hewitt sat down with me, he showed me clips of Thad Young and some of the stuff they did with him," Gilbert said via phone the night before he penned.
