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.

HOW COULD the owner of a basketball team that lost 14,000 games expect to get in the Hall of Fame? Every year when the inductees were announced, Red Klotz died a little. But he was not the kind of guy to brood. He took his lumps and moved on. And moving on meant continuing to coach and play the game he loved, into his 90s. Louis Herman "Red" Klotz, whose involvement in basketball as player, coach and team owner went back 80 years, and the owner and coach of a team that was created to lose to the legendary Harlem Globetrotters in games all over the world, died Saturday.

Connor Barwin arrived during halftime for LeSean McCoy's charity basketball game at Neumann University Saturday afternoon. The Eagles linebacker wore a pair of low-top running shoes and cutoff jeans. He said he did not plan to play, but McCoy told him he needed him on his team in a game that also featured former Eagle DeSean Jackson, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters, boxing champion Danny Garcia, and rapper Nelly. Barwin obliged. The former college basketball player showed he still had game, even while wearing denim.

It was the law, Shaquille O'Neal said. Basketball camps such as the Reebok Classic Breakout - which runs through Friday at Philadelphia University - were prohibited for high school players in Texas. Instead of heading to national camps and playing in front of college coaches, O'Neal played in smaller tournaments in the late 1980s. He said he was well known throughout the state, but his name lacked a national sizzle. He wound up at LSU. O'Neal told 120 campers Wednesday night that his route to NBA stardom was not easy.

GERALD HOWARD became the first black basketball player at Chestnut Hill Academy to be selected first team All-Inter-Ac in 1992 when he was chosen by league coaches after averaging 11.5 points on a team that shared the title with Germantown Academy. Howard went on to a distinguished track and field career at the University of Virginia where he still holds school records in the 100-meter (10.42) and 200-meter (20.79) dashes. He is currently an IT professional living in Lafayette Hill with his wife and three children.

AS TIME SLOWLY ticked off the clock hanging on the wall adjacent to Amar Stukes, his nerves weren't getting any calmer. Stukes tried to go unnoticed in his 9 a.m. history class, his first ever at La Salle University last year during his redshirt freshman year. He sat quietly. He refused to raise his hand. And as the clock continued to tick, Stukes sat there, embarrassed and uncomfortable. With a year before he could touch a hardwood basketball court, before he could don his golden jersey and Explorers gear, he couldn't figure out how to stop shaking in class.

WHEN JERAMI Grant, one of the Sixers' second-round draft picks, walked into the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine on Saturday, he did so with some exclusive company. Accompanied by his father, former Sixer Harvey Grant, Jerami Grant has something that his new teammates are lacking - a family full of NBA talent. But just like his fellow second-rounders, he's coming to Philadelphia with a chip on his shoulder. "We all try to make our own way, but we definitely try to learn from our parents' experiences," Jerami Grant said, his blue Sixers hat resting in front of him as he sat between fellow draft picks Pierre Jackson and Jordan McRae.

Herb Magee said he learned a lesson about coaching from Jack Devine. Magee's senior year at West Catholic High School was Mr. Devine's first year of coaching basketball there, but he came with a reputation as a star player at West Catholic and Villanova University. "We felt we were a good team, but when Coach Devine took over, he instilled in us the desire to become better," Magee said. "He would let us do what we did best," Magee said, adding that as a coach, "I allow my own players to do what they do best.
