At exactly 8:35 p.m. local time Monday in Etoy, Switzerland, Michael Brooks picked up the phone and - who can say the last time he did this? - dialed a Philadelphia number. He had decided to explain where he has been, why he has been there, and why he has been so quiet for so long. It was his first opportunity, he said, to respond to the phone messages I had left and the emails I had sent him last week. When he called me Monday, he had not yet read a column that had been published on Philly.com on Friday and in the Sunday Inquirer - a column that I had wanted to be about his reflections on the 1980 U.S. Olympic boycott but that, as I reported the piece, became something else entirely.

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.

Tory Cavalieri, an Inquirer second-team all-South Jersey guard from Atlantic City, has made a commitment to attend the University of Maine on a basketball scholarship. Cavalieri said that he wasn't sure when he would sign a binding letter of intent but that he would be joining the team, which is led by former Rowan coach John Giannini. The NCAA's late signing period for basketball players began yesterday. "Maine is the best situation for me," Cavalieri said. "I knew a few of the players and felt really comfortable there.

A second teenager has been arrested in connection with a shooting that killed one teen and injured two others after a basketball game last month in Southwest Philadelphia, according to police. Kywayne Hill, 18, surrendered to police Wednesday morning after a monthlong manhunt, and will face murder and other charges, said Capt. James Clark of the Homicide Unit. Hill is accused of shooting into a crowd outside a basketball tournament July 11 at Cobbs Creek Park, Clark said. Tyhir Barnes, 15, was struck by gunfire and killed in the ambush-style attack, in which two of his friends, ages 14 and 16, were injured, police said.

Throughout his week in Las Vegas earlier this month, Jay Wright hustled from coaches meetings to team meals to practices, keeping company with the power people in USA Basketball, and not once did he experience a moment alone with the most powerful of them all. Wright spent those seven days in the desert as an assistant coach with the USA select team, the group of 23 young NBA players charged with preparing the U.S. national men's team for the...

DAMIEN WILKINS popped into the sequestered media room for just a few seconds Thursday and surveyed the scene in the depths of Philadelphia University's Gallagher Center. "Hey old man, get in here," said Marc Hughes, the head coach of Team Trained To Go. Wilkins declined. "You know why I'm here," Wilkins replied, already heading back out through the doorway. "Yeah," Hughes said. "That two million. " Wilkins and Hughes are two men still standing in The Basketball Tournament, the quick-blooming summer tradition in which 64 teams and hundreds of basketball players, often professionals from all across Europe and Asia, compete in NCAA Tournament-style action for a big pot of money - this year, $2 million.

LAS VEGAS - Kyle Lowry is about to take his basketball career to another level. Last month, the North Philly native was one of 12 players named to the United States' men's Olympic basketball team for the Rio Olympics in August. The team begins training camp here Monday at UNLV's Mendenhall Center for an experience Lowry hopes concludes with a gold medal. "I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would get picked for Team USA, but it worked out," he said. "It's just an exciting moment, an exciting time.

IT WOULD be like hitting the lottery, except there's no consolation prize for getting only one number wrong. That's the fascination of a winner-take-all format. And the frustration. Ask the team that gets to the NCAA final and loses. Especially if it does down the way North Carolina did in April. But that's the way Jonathan Mugar wanted it. And The Basketball Tournament, now in its third year, is pretty much his baby. "Every game is a Game 7," said TBT's founder and CEO. "And there's nothing better than Game 7s. " It's what makes March Madness.

Kobe Bryant called AAU basketball "absolutely horrible for the game. " Too freewheeling. Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr wrote that AAU ball has a "genuinely weird subculture. " Big egos. "It's like everybody for themselves," said junior Del-Val High School guard Antwuan Butler. But the high-intensity, big-star AAU programs pay off. Future Villanova Wildcat Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree, from Neumann-Goretti High School and Team Final in the AAU, and Penn State recruit Tony Carr, from Roman Catholic High and Team Final, said most of their college recruiting came from AAU games played against other all-star players.

Roman Catholic High School hired Matt Griffin as its new head basketball coach on Wednesday. An assistant coach under Speedy Morris at St. Joseph's Prep the last two seasons, Griffin is a graduate of St. Joseph's Prep who played basketball at both Rider University and Boston University. A captain for both college teams, he helped Boston qualify for the NCAA tournament in 2011 by winning the America East Championship. Griffin, the son of former St. Joseph's University head coach John Griffin Sr., replaces former Roman coach Chris McNesby, who resigned in May after two straight state-championship seasons to spend more time with his family.
